AWR Corp., the innovation leader in high-frequency EDA software, announced its slate of product and technology activities scheduled during the European Microwave Week (EuMW) in Amsterdam. EuMW is Europe’s premier microwave, RF, wireless and radar event and runs from October 28 through November 2, 2012. Highlights of activities include:
Agilent Technologies Inc. announced the latest release of its IO Libraries Suite 16.3 software for use with electronic test instruments. The new release continues to improve the customer experience, with support for Microsoft® Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012 as well as enhanced USB connections.
Intercept Technology Inc., a leading provider of PCB, RF, Hybrid, and high-speed design software solutions in the EDA industry, is the recipient of the 2012 New Product Introduction (NPI) Award from Printed Circuit Design & Fab Magazine in the PCB Design Tools category.
X-COM Systems LLC, a subsidiary of Bird Technologies, introduced version 3.0 of its RF Editor Graphical RF Editor software, the industry's most advanced tool for modifying and building custom RF signal waveform files for use in defense, commercial, and system verification applications. RF Editor Version 3.0 is more intuitive, faster, and adds useful features that expand its capabilities.
Agilent Technologies Inc. announced that it has worked with Concilium Technologies and the department of electrical, electronic and computer engineering at the University of Pretoria, South Africa, to develop one of the largest electrical engineering training laboratories in the world.
Teseq Inc. offers two new reverberation chambers (RVC) that further expand its already extensive test chamber portfolio. The RVC 2XS and RVC XS feature high performance and portability in a compact RF test chamber.
Anritsu Co. introduces software options for its MT8820C radio communication analyzer that allows the one-box tester to perform testing of LTE FDD Band 22 and LTE TDD Band 42/43 LTE smartphones and mobile terminals. The extended functionality enhances the capability of the MT8820C, which can be used to test all mobile communications technologies, and allows the inherent cost and time efficiencies associated with the MT8820C to be realized in the development of LTE FDD Band 22 and LTE TDD Band 42/43 LTE phones and devices.
National Instruments introduced the world’s first RF vector signal transceiver (VST), the NI PXIe-5644R, and with it, a new class of software-designed instrumentation. This software-centric architecture represents a new era in which engineers and scientists can use LabVIEW to tailor open, field-programmable gate array (FPGA)-based hardware for their specific needs.
