Cellular 4G/LTE Channel
2011 marked a big year for mergers and acquisitions (M&A) in the mobile device semiconductor market. From Intel's acquisition of Infineon Technologies AG Wireless Solutions to NVIDIA's purchase of Icera, the mobile device semiconductor market has seen a lot of moving and shaking.
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.
Avago Technologies, a supplier of analog interface components for communications, industrial and consumer applications, announced a high-gain, high-linearity power amplifier for high-data-rate applications found in 700 to 800 MHz cellular infrastructure equipment.
Anritsu Company introduces enhanced MT8212E/MT8213E Cell Master™ and MS2712E/MS2713E Spectrum Master™ handheld analyzers that have new measurement capabilities and improved overall performance to address the rollout of 4G technologies, including TD-LTE. Offering superior performance in a compact design, the MT8212E/MT8213E and MS2712E/MS2713E offer service providers, network equipment manufacturers (NEMs), and third-party contractors and installers a cost-efficient and accurate test tool when deploying and maintaining LTE networks.
