Agilent Technologies Inc. introduced enhancements to its N7109A multi-channel signal analyzer for emerging multichannel LTE, LTE-Advanced and MIMO RF measurement requirements, including LTE antenna beamforming and LTE-Advanced carrier aggregation.
Mentor Graphics Corp. announced the release of version 8.2 of the HyperLynx® suite of analysis tools offering significant new functionality for optimizing printed circuit board (PCB) designs, including 3D full-wave field solving and integrated thermal/power co-simulation analysis capabilities.
At DesignCon 2012 on Tuesday, January 31st, Tanner EDA, providers of software for the design, layout and verification of analog and mixed-signal integrated circuits (IC), participated in a panel session on analog and mixed-signal design moderated by Brian Bailey.
Rohde & Schwarz is taking a completely new approach to measuring radiated spurious emissions on LTE devices, making it considerably easier for users to measure RSE in the presence of LTE carrier power. The solution is the R&S OSP open switch and control platform equipped with the new R&S OSP-B155 option.
Agilent Technologies Inc. announced it will demonstrate its high-speed digital test solutions at DesignCon 2012, January 31-February 1, at the Santa Clara Convention Center, Santa Clara, Calif., in booth 201.
"As the festive cheer of the holiday season dies away, the mood among handset vendors remains quietly confident regarding 2012," observes Jake Saunders, Vice President of Forecasting. "The outlook will yield growth in the order of 8%, netting 1.67 billion handsets shipped worldwide by the end of 2012.
When network operators upgrade to LTE they want to take full advantage of their new and existing resources, so to support this objective, Rohde & Schwarz has added MIMO-specific measurements to its R&S ROMES4.65 drive test software. Using this feature, the R&S TSMW network scanner can quickly identify interferers that reduce MIMO performance in LTE networks.
