New bandwidths, mixed-signal analysis and options for testing USB interfaces, CAN LIN buses and audio signals: Rohde & Schwarz significantly expanded its oscilloscope portfolio in 2012. At the embedded world 2013 trade fair in Nuremberg (hall 4, booth 112), the company will present its latest applications, two new probes and other state-of-the-art products.
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.
NuWaves Engineering, an international Radio Frequency (RF) and Embedded Systems solutions provider, announced that two of its module-level RF products, the Multi-Octave RF Upconverter (MORF™) and the ConvertaWave2™ Downconverter, have been selected by ViaSat Inc. to be embedded in the company’s VRG-1000 RF Signal Environment Generator product line.
Pentek Inc.announced rackmount additions to its Talon® RF/IF signal recording and playback systems. The Model RTS 2707 rackmount system, and Model RTR 2747 rugged rackmount system, offer recording and playback of RF/IF signals up to 700 MHz with signal bandwidths up to 200 MHz.
Rohde & Schwarz performs together with ASTRI a live test on a 2x2 MIMO base station in the uplink and downlink at the Mobile World Congress 2013. Hong Kong Applied Science and Technology Research Institute (ASTRI) provides an LTE-Advanced small cell as the device under test. What makes this demonstration special is that the 2x2 MIMO signal is generated and analyzed using only a single measuring instrument each.
SenarioTek announced the extension of the FlexMatrix reconfigurable RF switch matrix series to incorporate external signal conditioning. Now test engineers can easily route their required signal conditioning into RF switching paths for applications such as radar, military communications and consumer wireless.
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.
Analog Devices Inc. (ADI) announced the release of a new version of its popular ADIsimRF™ design tool. The free design tool is the software accompaniment to ADI's complete portfolio of RF-to-digital functional blocks, allowing engineers to model RF signal chains using devices from across ADI's RF IC and data converter portfolio.
Agilent Technologies Inc. introduced its new E6607C EXT wireless communications test set, featuring an integrated multiport adapter for cost-effective, high-volume wireless device manufacturing test. Optimized for testing multiple devices simultaneously, the EXT-C with integrated multiport adapter enables up to 3x gain in effective test throughput (vs. the EXT-B) for less than 1.3x the price.
Teseq Inc., a leading developer and provider of instrumentation and systems for EMC emission and immunity testing, now offers a double-ridged horn antenna that has a frequency range of 6 to 18 GHz. The new PMM DR-01 is designed for radiated emissions and immunity applications, featuring an antenna factor of 36 dB/m to 41 dB/m and excellent sensitivity for emissions measurements.
