National Instruments introduced NI LabVIEW 2012, the latest version of its system design software. Users gain ready-to-run starting points for a breadth of LabVIEW applications and access to new training options that help improve the quality of their systems.
Rohde & Schwarz's new R&S ESR test receiver is available in two different models for frequencies ranging from 10 Hz to 3 GHz or 7 GHz to meet the requirements of all users who perform EMC certification on commercial equipment.
Mobile Experts released a report that predicts a new future for base station semiconductors. In particular, the number of base station transceivers will grow to more than 17 million per year by 2017. Increasing bandwidth requirements, MIMO, and carrier aggregation will drive growth in key semiconductor components. The new report, "Semiconductors for Macro Transceivers and RRH," gives a detailed analysis of these trends.
Aeroflex Ltd., a wholly owned subsidiary of Aeroflex Holding Corp., announced that it has added IEEE 802.11ac capability to its S-Series RF signal generator and analyzer product line. First introduced in 2010, the S-Series offers top-of-the-range performance at a mid-range price.
The new application note “Solutions for 802.11ad PHY Layer Testing” offers insight into how to enable quick and accurate simulation, generation and analysis of 60 GHz signals with 2 GHz modulation bandwidth.
Agilent Technologies Inc. enhanced its FieldFox RF analyzers with options for time-domain analysis and channel-power measurements. These options give engineers the features they need to more easily and quickly test their RF communications infrastructure.
Agilent Technologies Inc. announced that its EXA signal analyzer is now the industry's most cost-effective millimeter-wave signal analyzer, covering frequencies up to 44 GHz. With external mixing, it can cover up to 325 GHz. The result is easier, more accurate millimeter-wave measurements.
