The new R&S TS7124 RF shielded box from Rohde & Schwarz offers the best shielding effectiveness, the largest interior dimensions and the most flexible antenna configurations in its class. It provides reliable, reproducible measurement results in a shielded test environment, especially during the production of wireless devices. Unique in its class, the R&S TS7124 offers shielding in excess of 80 dB at 6 GHz. Its frequency range from 300 MHz to 6 GHz.
Pasternack introduces a series of 8-bit digital phase shifters which are programmable over a full 360° range and can produce a discrete set of phase states of up to 255 total steps with 1.4° increments with a high level of accuracy and minimal phase shift error. These building block components cover broadband microwave and millimeter wave frequencies and are ideal for aerospace and defense radar and EW applications.
Keysight's IntegraVision PA2203A 4-channel power analyzer gives R&D engineers working on three-phase power devices an intuitive tool that delivers the dynamic views they need to see. The PA2203A provides 0.05 percent basic accuracy, 16-bit resolution measurements and additionally lets users visualize transients, in-rush currents and state changes with a 5-M samples-per-second digitizer that captures voltage, current and power in real time with 2.5-MHz bandwidth.
R&S CMW290 functional radio communication tester from Rohde & Schwarz is the right solution for users who want to integrate wireless modules into their platforms and test them. For end-to-end testing of applications, the R&S CMW290 can simulate a cellular network and set up a connection between the application on the device or system and the server. IMS server, audio or eCall/ERA-Glonass functionality are also available for the R&S CMW290.
Keysight Technologies Inc. announced the TS-8989 Body and Safety Electronics Reference Solution, a ready-to-go PXI-based solution for testing body and safety control modules in the automotive electronic test space. The TS-8989 reference solution includes a chassis that combines an 8-slot PXI chassis, and 11-slot switch/load unit with an integrated 8-ch DIO and ±12 V fixed DC power supply for fixture control.
Custom MMIC is offering a low-noise amplifier that is perfect for EW and communication systems where small size and low power consumption are critical. The CMD223 features a low noise figure, high-gain, broadband performance, excellent return losses, and single positive supply voltage. At 13.5 GHz the CMD223 delivers greater than 22 dB of gain with a corresponding output 1 dB compression point of +13.5 dBm and a noise figure of 1.5 dB.
RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for a LowDrift™ BAW filter created for Band 25 repeater uplink applications centered at 1882.5 MHz. Qorvo’s 885048 has 65 MHz of usable bandwidth and can handle up to 1 W of RF input power. Featuring a low insertion loss of 2.3 dB max, the Qorvo 885048 offers single-input, single-output operation. No external matching components are required which simplifies circuit design.
Anritsu Company announces support for LTE-A 3 Carrier Aggregation (3CA) Carrier Acceptance Test (CAT) requirements. The ME7834LA is a scalable GCF, PTCRB, and carrier-validated test system that enables certification of 3G and LTE devices to industry and carrier standards. It provides test coverage for 3GPP 36.523 as well as a wide portfolio of CAT test plans across multiple operators. For existing users of the ME7834L platform, an upgrade path is available with support.
