Test and Measurement Channel
A unique feature of the tried and tested R&S NRP power sensors is their ability to work independently of a specific base unit. The sensors can be connected directly to a PC or laptop via USB. Rohde & Schwarz has now implemented this feature for compact smartphones and tablet PCs as well.
Aeroflex Ltd. announced the launch of the TM500 Multi-UE LTE-A Test Mobile, which supports carrier aggregation across multiple mobile terminals or UE. Carrier aggregation, a key component of LTE-A, allows multiple carriers comprised of either contiguous or non-contiguous spectrum to be added together, allowing wider channel bandwidths -- and higher data rates -- to be achieved.
Phase Matrix's newest addition to the QuickSyn® line of microwave frequency synthesizers is a 10 GHz synthesizer housed in a very compact package, only 4 x 4 x 0.8 inches. The new synthesizer, model FSL-0010, employs the revolutionary phase-refining QuickSyn technology, which allows this line of signal sources to perform with remarkably low phase noise, switch between frequencies very quickly, and consume power efficiently.
Agilent introduced MIPI™ M-PHY physical layer receiver and transmitter tests with switch automation. The tests are designed to accelerate the turn-on and debug of MIPI M-PHY-based systems and provide design engineers an efficient way to ensure M-PHY devices interoperate with the application processor.
TESEQ, a leading developer and provider of instrumentation and systems for EMC emission and immunity testing, have expanded its capability in field probe calibration to deliver calibration data at all frequencies defined in the IEC 61000-4-3 standard.
Anritsu Corp. has announced that the company has received the world's first PTCRB approval for its ME7873L RF Conformance Test System meeting the LTE Rel-10 Carrier Aggregation Standard.
Teseq has expanded its capability in field probe calibration to deliver calibration data at all frequencies defined in the IEC 61000-4-3 standard.
W. L. Gore & Associates Inc. has added a rugged 18 GHz cable assembly to its GORE® PHASEFLEX® Microwave/RF Test Assemblies line. The assembly is specifically engineered for T&M applications that require precise, repeatable measurements.
Agilent Technologies Inc. announced significant enhancements to its midrange N9020A MXA X-Series signal analyzer. New options for 160-MHz analysis bandwidth and real-time spectrum analyzer (RTSA) capability address the challenges of measuring interference in the next generation of heterogeneous wireless networks.
