Ted Rappaport, founding director of NYU WIRELESS and a leading proponent of using the millimeter wave spectrum for wireless communications, discusses the FCC's recent rulemaking actions and technology developments that are paving the way to 5G.
Anritsu Corp. has announced the availability of three new measurement software packages expanding the functions of the MT8870A Universal Wireless Test Set to support manufacturing tests of IoT/M2M applications.
Anritsu Corp. released its new high performance waveguide mixer MA2806A to expand millimeter wave measurement solutions. Connecting the new MA2806A to Anritsu’s signal analyzer MS2830A supports spectrum measurements in the 50 to 75 GHz Band (V-Band) currently used by various millimeter wave sensors, WiGig Gigabit Wireless LAN (802.11ad), and broadcast video camera streaming equipment.
Spectrum has released the single channel M4i.6630-x8 and dual channel M4i.6631-x8 arbitrary waveform generators cards capable of outputting electronic signals at rates of up to 1.25 GS/s with 16-bit vertical resolution.
For applications requiring extended electronic waveform acquisition and generation, Spectrum has announced a new storage system that works with its PC-based digitizer and generator cards to dramatically increase possible recording and replay times.
