Ted Rappaport, founding director of NYU WIRELESS and a leading proponent of using the millimeter wave spectrum for wireless communications, discusses the FCC's recent rulemaking actions and technology developments that are paving the way to 5G.
Anritsu Co. introduced an electromagnetic field (EMF) radiation measurement system for its Spectrum Master™ MS271xE handheld spectrum analyzers and Cell Master™ MT8212E/MT8213E base station analyzers. With the option installed and an Anritsu isotropic antenna attached, the analyzers can be used by field technicians of government regulatory authorities and cellular operators to measure electromagnetic fields, ensuring wireless networks are in compliance with various national standards for personal safety.
Aaronia AG offers new, high quality magnetic field antennas of the MDF series, usable for signal direction tests and field strength measurements. Available in 5 different versions (2 passive, 3 active) the MDF covers an extremely wide frequency range from 9 kHz to 400 MHz.
Anritsu Co. introduces the Microwave Site Master S820E, the world’s first handheld cable and antenna analyzer with frequency coverage up to 40 GHz, which continues Anritsu’s leadership position in the handheld analyzer market it established with the first broadband Site Master over 15 years ago.
Computer Simulation Technology (CST), Darmstadt, announces winners of the CST University Publication Award 2013, an annual grant to university institutes and researchers for published papers related to 3D electromagnetic field simulation applications.
Anritsu Co. introduces three frequency options for its industry-leading PIM Master MW82119A Passive Intermodulation (PIM) high-power, battery-operated, portable PIM test analyzer. The new options provide wireless field engineers and technicians with the first battery-operated handheld analyzers that can accurately conduct “top of the tower” PIM measurements in the LTE 800 MHz and UMTS 2100 MHz bands, in addition to the LTE 2600 MHz band.
Pulse Electronics Corp., a leading provider of electronic components, introduces an ultra-thin near field communications (NFC) ferrite sheet antenna. The antenna is 28 percent thinner than the previous version and still meets the EMVCo specification of 40 mm. It enables NFC connectivity to mobile devices for payment sharing, credential storage and exchange, accessing and controlling data, and wirelessly connecting to tags.
Lake Shore Cryotronics will exhibit its materials characterization solutions, including its prototype terahertz (THz) system, at booth 623 at SPIE Optics + Photonics, August 27-29 in San Diego. In addition to the new THz system, Lake Shore offers probe stations and Hall measurement systems (HMS) for complex measurements under variable temperature and magnetic field conditions.
Anritsu Co. introduces Wireless Remote Tools for its touchscreen PIM Master™, Site Master™, Spectrum Master™, and VNA Master™ handheld instruments. With the software installed, field technicians and engineers can remotely view screens and control the industry-leading field instruments using a Windows™-based laptop, PC or tablet, simplifying the deployment, installation, and maintenance of 2G/3G/4G wireless networks.
