Test Equipment Plus announces the Signal Hound BB60A real-time spectrum analyzer with excellent performance
Test Equipment Plus announced the Signal Hound BB60A, a real-time spectrum analyzer and RF recorder designed to capture and display RF events as short as 1 µs. The BB60A is a small, lightweight, and affordable USB-based real-time RF spectrum analyzer that operates from 9 kHz to 6 GHz and can go anywhere. It can also be customized to perform complex, remote, and/or automated functions.
Anritsu spectrum analyzer/signal analyzer now compatible with satellite carrier monitoring system from SAT Corp.
Anritsu Co. announces its MS2830A Spectrum Analyzer/Signal Analyzer is now compatible with the Monics satellite carrier monitoring system from SAT Corp. (SAT), a subsidiary of Kratos Defense & Security Solutions, Inc. A new driver enables the MS2830A, which combines high speed and performance in a cost- and energy-efficient design, to be integrated into the Monics enterprise networked carrier monitoring system used by government agencies, satellite operators, satellite service providers, and telecommunications companies.
Agilent Technologies Inc. introduced a high-performance 14-slot AXIe chassis and system module. This unique technology enables multi-module system capabilities that allow test engineers working in radar, antenna, high-energy physics and digital to set up large systems with all modules in a single chassis, providing better module-to-module synchronization and performance.
ETL Systems, a global designer and manufacturer of RF distribution equipment for satellite communications, has launched a new range of RF over fibre equipment called the StingRay series.
Anritsu Co. introduces an internal atomic clock option for its MS2720T Spectrum Master handheld spectrum analyzer that allows users to acquire excellent frequency accuracy, including in environments in which the GPS cannot be used. Integrating the atomic clock inside the MS2720T provides field engineers and technicians with a durable, handheld spectrum analyzer that can deliver the extremely high accuracy necessary to prove regulatory compliance.
The new R&S RTE from Rohde & Schwarz is available with bandwidths from 200 MHz to 1 GHz. An acquisition rate of more than one million waveforms per second helps users find signal faults quickly. The scope's highly accurate digital trigger system with virtually no trigger jitter delivers highly precise results. The single-core A/D converter with more than seven effective bits (ENOB) almost completely eliminates signal distortion.
Agilent Technologies Inc. announced a next-generation user interface for its Infiniium real-time oscilloscopes. It is the first oscilloscope user interface to take advantage of new display technologies and significantly enhance the user experience by offering faster documentation, personalized viewing and improved usability.
Tektronix Inc. announced the MDO3000 Series of mixed domain oscilloscopes. The ultimate integrated oscilloscope includes a spectrum analyzer, logic analyzer, protocol analyzer, arbitrary function generator and digital voltmeter
Agilent's newest X-Series measurement application supports LTE-A RF conformance testing to 3GPP Release 11
Agilent Technologies Inc. extended its leadership in LTE-Advanced measurement with its latest X-Series measurement application release. The software provides the most comprehensive RF conformance testing of LTE-Advanced FDD and TDD transmitters and components to the 3GPP Release 11 specification. It is available for both benchtop and modular products.
7Layers and Anritsu Co. announce that 7Layers has upgraded its ME7873L RF/RRM conformance test system with Rel. 8, Rel. 9, and Rel. 10 Radio Resource Management (RRM), as well as carrier aggregation (CA) test capabilities. This upgrade significantly expands the 7Layers test portfolio, including RRM capabilities for conformance test (CT), carrier-specific RRM capabilities for carrier acceptance test (CAT), and Anritsu’s market-leading capabilities for LTE Advanced CA.
