Agilent’s new application note describes how the 89600 VSA software’s multi-measurement capability facilitates testing wireless devices and systems handling multiple carriers and formats at the same time.
octoScope Inc. announced a logic implementation of its MIMO octoFade™ wireless testing solution. When applied to a wireless signal using digital signal processing, channel emulation makes the signal appear as though it has traversed a realistic space, having been reflected from walls, cars, people or other surfaces.
Boeing has developed an advanced method to test wireless signals in airplane cabins, making it possible for passengers to enjoy more reliable connectivity when using networked personal electronic devices in the air.
Anritsu Co. introduces three software packages supporting LTE-Advanced and five packages supporting IEEE802.11ac that extend the analysis capability of its MS269xA/MS2830A signal analyzers and MG3710A/MG3700A vector signal generators. With the software installed in the instruments, developers and manufacturers of LTE-Advanced UEs and components, as well as wireless LAN (WLAN) modules and devices have accurate solutions to verify performance, speed time-to-market, and lower cost-of-test.
Pasternack Enterprises Inc., a leading ISO 9001:2008 manufacturer and global supplier of RF and microwave products, announces the expansion of their line of Schottky diode detectors. RF detectors from Pasternack are coaxial components that convert the input RF signal strength into proportional DC voltage at its output, also referred to as “video out.”
Pentek Inc. announced the new Talon® RF/IF signal recording and playback system: the Model RTR 2727 rugged portable recorder suitable for military and aerospace applications. The system features recording and playback of IF signals up to 700 MHz with signal bandwidths to 200 MHz. It can be configured with 500 MHz 12-bit A/Ds or 400 MHz 14-bit A/Ds and an 800 MHz 16-bit D/A.
Anritsu Co. introduces the MG3740A analog signal generator that outputs AM/FM/ΦM test signals for evaluation of narrowband analog radio equipment used in public safety networks and private commercial networks.
Aeroflex Ltd. announced that the industry-standard TM500 LTE-A Single UE Test Mobile has added support for 3GPP Release 10 (Rel-10) Transmission Mode 9 (TM9), which allows enhanced network capability and performance by flexible use of MIMO with minimum additional overhead.
Ardent Concepts has announced the availability of a new, patented, high density termination assembly solution for true 40 Gbps/40 GHz coaxial-to-PCB transition. The Terminate-R™ from Ardent Concepts is a compression mount (solderless) connector designed to provide the lowest loss interface between multiple lanes of high speed digital channels on a PCB to another PCB or measurement instrumentation.
