Keysight Technologies Inc. introduced two software updates for its real-time oscilloscope products. The software updates are currently available in the Infiniium oscilloscope firmware version 5.60. The N8827A PAM-4 analysis software update adds bit error ratio (BER) capabilities for 4-level pulse amplitude modulation (PAM-4) based signals. The N8834A MultiScope software update adds support for Keysight’s InfiniiVision oscilloscopes.
RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for the PE4152, a high linearity RF mixer from Peregrine Semiconductor. Designed for land mobile radio (LMR) and cellular infrastructure up to 1 GHz, the PE4152 offers two operating modes: LO enable and LO bypass. LO enable provides 25 dBm IIP3 with 52 dBm IIP2. LO bypass provides 24 dBm IIP3 with 46 dBm IIP2. Both modes provide low conversion loss of 6.5dB.
Pasternack has greatly expanded their lines of coaxial packaged noise sources covering frequency bands up to 60 GHz. Various types of noise source design configurations are available including octave band and broadband noise sources, amplified noise sources, noise sources with integral isolators, and precision calibrated instrumentation grade noise sources.
Empower RF Systems is an established manufacturer of high power solid state RF & microwave amplifiers offering modules, rack-mount amplifiers, and multi-function power amplifier solutions to 6 GHz, with output power combinations from tens of watts to multi-kilowatts. Applications include communications, radar, Satcom and telemetry, wireless infrastructure, electronic attack, product testing, and EMC.
Keysight Technologies Inc. introduced swept source optical coherence tomography (SS-OCT) application options running at 1 GS/s (-SS2) and 500 MS/s (-SS1). The options, now available on the U5303A high-speed data acquisition PCIe card, enable OEMs to obtain faster image acquisition by increasing sampling rate and A-scan rate. This allows for non-invasive, high-speed medical imaging in various applications.
Keysight Technologies Inc. announced successful verification of 1Gbps IP data throughput with the Snapdragon X16 LTE modem, a product of Qualcomm Technologies, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Qualcomm Incorporated, and the E7515A UXM wireless test set. This accomplishment brings support for LTE-A category 16 (Cat16) IP data throughput in a benchtop network emulator.
Anritsu Company introduces the MS2840A signal analyzer that features broad frequency coverage of 9 kHz to 44.5 GHz and best-in-class close-in SSB phase noise performance. With the high-end performance and frequency coverage that can be extended to the millimeter wave (mmWave) range, the MS2840A is a highly accurate tool to conduct wideband and narrowband measurements on next-generation 4G/5G designs, microwave and mmWave wireless backhaul and more.
RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for the Qorvo TQL9093 ultra low noise amplifier featuring flat gain. Capable of operation from 600 to 4200 MHz, the TQL9093 is optimized for wireless infrastructure applications spanning 1500 to 4000 MHz and offers >19 dB of gain +/-0.5 dB over this span. Midband OIP3 is 41.5 dBm while noise figure is as low as 0.54 dB.
The LSS series of satellite simulators enable RF testing of mobile satellite communications systems without the need for cabling and with true portability for optimum equipment location. These simulators are fitted with dual polarized horn antennas in both the uplink and downlink bands and for each frequency conversion there is a separate attenuator providing adjustment of signal levels to accommodate receiver sensitivity and range distance.
