Rohde & Schwarz has tailored its mid-range measuring instruments to handle WLAN signals in line with IEEE 802.11ac. Using the R&S SMBV100A and R&S FSV, manufacturers of WLAN chipsets, components and devices can now easily generate and analyze signals with 160 MHz bandwidth.
Boundary scan has become an indispensable technology as engineers face increasing test access challenges. The x1149 boundary scan analyzer is a versatile yet easy to use board test tool designed to help users through board design and validation, and re-using the same x1149 test in manufacturing.
AWR has just published a new Microwave Office® software application note titled, “End-to-end Design and Realization of an X-band Transmission Analyzer Using AWR Circuit, System, and EM Software.” The note examines the complete flow and details the design of several critical design elements for this device, which integrates many RF components on a single printed circuit board (PCB).
Anritsu Co. introduces the MS2027C and MS2037C, two new members of its VNA Master handheld vector network analyzer series that bring the inherent advantages of VNA Master to 15 GHz frequency applications.
AWT Global has launched a new line of Passive Intermodulation (PIM) Testers - the PIM S1L Series of testers. These analyzers are well suited to meet the requirements of Laboratory and Quality Assurance applications and are offered in the 700, 850, 900, 1800, 1900, 2000, 2100 and 2600 MHz mobile communications bands. Other bands and customized frequency combinations are also available on request.
Agilent Technologies Inc. will demonstrate its latest boundary scan analyzer, plus inline in-circuit and functional test systems at the IPC APEX EXPO, Feb. 19-21, at the San Diego Convention Center (Booth 2827) in San Diego, Calif.
Tektronix Inc. announced the lowest cost real-time spectrum analyzer for mid-range performance, featuring the industry’s most advanced signal discovery and triggering capabilities: the RSA5000 Real-Time Spectrum Analyzer Series.
Tektronix Inc., a leading innovator of signal generation and analysis solutions required for the microwave and RF industry, today announced the H500 and SA2500 Handheld Spectrum Analyzers that include DPX™ waveform image processor technology to provide a live RF view of the spectrum. With unique DPX technology along with built-in mapping and signal classification features in a compact, ruggedized package, the instruments are designed to allow spectrum regulators to efficiently manage and monitor spectrum in the field and hunt down elusive signals and interferers.
AWT Global has launched a new line of portable passive intermodulation (PIM) testers with an extended carrier power range: the PIM+ series. These systems are equally suited for testing macro cells as well as outdoor and in-building DAS installations. While 2 x 20 W (2 x 43 dBm) carrier power is the reference for standard for PIM test systems, the new PIM+ offers an extended adjustable power range of +15 dBm to +44 dBm for each carrier.
