AR RF/Microwave Instrumentation has introduced the Model 350AH1 solid state amplifier. This portable, self-contained, 350 watt/10 Hz to 1 MHz unit provides power, durability and dependability along with the versatility for a wide range of applications.
EHX is the only real-time EMC and EMI diagnostic tool that enables them to test ultra-high speed (> 2GHz) PCBs their lab-bench. With EHX, Wi-Fi designers and manufacturers can for example conduct tests and debug EMC and signal integrity problems up to the third harmonic.
Tektronix Inc. unveiled its next generation of arbitrary waveform generators that offer up to 50 GS/s sample rate performance. The new AWG70000 Series supports a wide range of demanding signal generation requirements.
Tektronix Inc. announced that lab testing has shown that its next generation performance oscilloscopes - due for availability in 2014 - will deliver real-time bandwidth of 70 GHz, with significant upside potential. The new oscilloscope platform will deliver the performance and signal fidelity needed for applications such as 400 Gbps and 1 Tbps optical communications and fourth generation serial data communications.
Analog Devices Inc. (ADI), a world leader in high-performance semiconductors for signal processing applications and RF ICs, introduced a high performance RMS power detector. Featuring operation up to 10 GHz and a 67 dB measurement range, the ADL5906 TruPwr™ RMS detector is frequency versatile and eliminates the need for external input tuning devices, such as a balun.
Aeroflex Inc. has announced its capability to simulate WAAS (Wide Area Augmentation System) LPV (Localizer Performance with Vertical Guidance) approaches by adding this critical new feature to their GPSG-1000 Portable GPS Simulator.
Vaunix Technology Corp. announced the addition of eight new models to its LMS Series of signal generators. The additions are in response to customer demand for defined frequency bands through 4 GHz, specifically 70 to 450 MHz, 250 to 1500 MHz, 600 to 3200 MHz, and 1000 to 4000 MHz.
Analog Devices Inc., in collaboration with Xilinx® Inc. and MathWorks Inc., is launching a series of design conferences for analog, mixed-signal and embedded systems engineers. Based on the theme “Discuss. Design. Deliver.,” the conferences will bring together experts in high-performance analog, field-programmable gate arrays (FPGA) and modeling tools to present complete signal chain and system-ready solutions for complex design challenges.
Aeroflex Inc. announced the addition of enhanced VSWR (return loss) and distance to fault to the tracking generator functionality of the Aeroflex 3550 Digital Radio Test System. By utilizing the sweep of the tracking generator, the 3550 can measure and display the VSWR of an antenna or find the location of one or more faults in a cable.
A research team from the Georgia Institute of Technology has developed a novel device – the ultra-compact passive true time delay. This component could help reduce the size, complexity, power requirements and cost of phased array designs, and may have applications in other defense and communication areas as well.
