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.
AWR Corp., a leader in high-frequency EDA, continues to grow its AWR.TV franchise with new installments of the company's IMS 2011 MTT-S select MicroApps talks including the modeling of spiral inductor Q, nonlinear modeling, and their online design center.
The key challenge facing RF engineers today is to minimize the time taken for the design and optimization of components, but the ability to do so is impeded by the need to use different EM simulation tools for different aspects of the design. By embedding state-of-the-art solvers based on...
