Rohde & Schwarz launched the R&S SMW200A high-end vector signal generator that combines maximum flexibility, outstanding performance and intuitive operation, making it the ideal tool for generating complex, digitally modulated signals.
AWT Global has launched a new line of field strength meters with spectrum analyzer capability: The UBA 9290 Series. The battery operated, handheld analyzers are well suited for wireless field applications but are also a very useful tool in the RF laboratory.
BeSpoon, a fabless semiconductor company, and CEA-Leti have demonstrated an IR-UWB integrated circuit able to measure distances within a few centimeters’ accuracy, and have established a world-record operating range at 880 m (standard regulation) and 3,641 m (emergency situations).
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., a wholly owned subsidiary of Aeroflex Holding Corp., announced that it has added support for Bird Technologies' through-line Bird Wideband Power Sensors (WPS) to the industry leading 3550 Hand-held Radio Test System.
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.
Lake Shore announces a new continuously variable temperature (CVT) probe, developed in collaboration with TOYO Corp., that allows for true, continuous unattended wafer probing of a material sample across a range of temperatures. The probes, when used in any Lake Shore probe station, significantly improve reliability of sample measurement.
