SemiGen Inc., an ISO and ITAR certified RF/Microwave assembly and automated PCB manufacturing company, has announced that they have purchased a new Agilent 50 GHz PNA network analyzer to augment their RF/Microwave test lab.
Rohde & Schwarz now offers a new R&S FSW signal and spectrum analyzer that covers the frequency range from 2 Hz to 43.5 GHz. Its high RF dynamic range, measurement speed and numerous functions make the R&S FSW43 an excellent microwave analyzer. The displayed average noise level of –164 dBm with preamplifier switched on is very low in the microwave range. With a phase noise of –117 dBc (Hz) at 40 GHz and 10 kHz carrier offset, the analyzer allows high-sensitivity measurements even close to the carrier, e.g. on radar signals.
Aeroflex Ltd. has added support for 4x2 multi-input multi-output (MIMO) to the 7100 Digital Radio Test Set for the R&D testing of LTE user equipment (UE) being designed with this feature.
Agilent Technologies is offering three application notes covering interference measurements, cable and antenna measurements, and measurement calibrations:
The series of application-focused webcasts instruct to make precise RF and microwave measurements with the new FieldFox family of microwave analyzers. Test results are comparable to that of benchtop equipment in the lab as well as field installation and maintenance environments. Topics include techniques for precise interference measurements, cable and antenna measurements, calibration and alignment measurements, time domain measurements and precise power measurements.
Agilent Technologies Inc. introduced the industry’s widest-bandwidth real-time digital downconverter option on the M9703A AXIe eight-channel high-speed digitizer. The new DDC functionality enables faster, more flexible measurements in high-channel-count applications.
Anritsu Co. introduces a burst detection enhancement for its MS272xC Spectrum Master handheld spectrum analyzer that makes it easier for field engineers and technicians to find narrow signals that may cause interference and adversely affect the performance of wireless networks. The Burst Detect mode extends the industry-leading performance of the MS272xC Spectrum Master analyzers, which feature the industry’s first 32 GHz and 43 GHz models, giving users powerful test tools for their field requirements.
Anritsu Co. introduced a tracking generator for its Spectrum Master™ MS2711E, MS2712E, and MS2713E models that enhances the overall performance of the handheld analyzers, while making it easier and faster for field technicians to conduct additional measurements.
NMDG has demonstrated support for fully calibrated contactless loop probes, kindly provided by Rosenberger HF-Technik, in its Integrated Component Characterization Environment (ICE) flagship software.
Rohde & Schwarz has added three new options for its compact R&S DST200 RF diagnostic chamber: the R&S DST-B160 automated 3D positioner, the R&S DST-B210 cross-polarized test antenna and the R&S DST-B270 communications antenna. The new options significantly speed up precompliance testing of wireless devices, allowing automated test sequences to be performed on the lab bench so that developers no longer require constant access to large RF test chambers.
