The RF Test Blog is a resource for finding ways to make better RF measurements. With over 10,000 visits since 2013, this popular blog includes information on equipment and measurement techniques that improve accuracy, measurement speed, dynamic range, sensitivity, repeatability, and more.
Remcom is pleased to announce several new features and enhanced capabilities in XFdtd, which will be previewed at IMS 2014 in Tampa Bay, Florida. Visit our at booth 1105 to see new time-saving features coming soon in XF.
High Speed Interconnects (www.highspeedint.com), a custom, high-performance, cable assembly manufacturer, has announced the launch of a new website which features their full product lines of ultra-high performance and robust DC-60 GHz micro coaxial and DC-70 GHz coaxial cable assemblies. Many of these assemblies feature a new ePTFE dielectric called VP90, a key enabler.
IQD’s latest high performance oscillator, the IQRB-1, offers a stability around a 1000 times more accurate than a typical oven controlled crystal oscillator (OCXO). This means it can be used as a free run frequency source in applications such as LTE (Long Term Evolution) systems that require exceptional timing accuracy. It can also be used for UTMS as well as extended holdover for CDMA and WiMax.
BeSpoon, a fabless semiconductor company, and CEA-Leti have demonstrated an IR-UWB integrated circuit able to measure distances within a few centimeters’ accuracy, and have established a world-record operating range at 880 m (standard regulation) and 3,641 m (emergency situations).
EMC Technology, a Smiths Microwave business, introduces the new 42UW series of high performance coaxial fixed attenuators, manufactured to meet the environmental requirements of MIL-DLT-3933. These coaxial attenuators offer superior attenuation accuracy and VSWR, with extended broadband frequency operation from DC to 26 GHz.
Aeroflex Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Aeroflex Holding Corp., announced that it has added support for Bird Technologies' through-line Bird Wideband Power Sensors (WPS) to the industry leading 3550 Hand-held Radio Test System.
BAE Systems and Lockheed Martin Corp. recently completed a series of successful guided flight tests for 155-mm Long Range Land Attack Projectiles (LRLAP) as part of the on-going qualification test program at White Sands Missile Range in New Mexico.
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.
Rohde & Schwarz now offers harmonic filter options for its R&S SMB100A microwave signal generator. These filters make it possible to achieve a harmonic suppression of more than –50 dBc over a wide frequency range from 150 MHz to max. 40 GHz. At low frequencies below 3 GHz, it is even possible to achieve an excellent –58 dBc.
