The testing of novel future generation communication systems, next-generation wireless communication and electronically steerable antennae were just three initiatives honoured at the annual National Instruments UK & Ireland Graphical System Design Achievement Awards.
Teledyne LeCroy announces the expansion of the popular WaveStation series of function/arbitrary waveform generators to include three new models with bandwidth up to 160 MHz and 500 MS/s sample rate — over three times more bandwidth and four times more sample rate than the existing models. The new WaveStation 3000 models come with a larger 4.3” color display, intuitive front panel, two output channels, and PC waveform editing software.
Sand 9 Inc. became the first micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS) company to achieve the stringent low-noise, high-stability and harsh environmental requirements for precision timing in communications infrastructure, industrial and military applications. As the first product based on Sand 9’s patented Temperature Compensated MEMS Oscillator (TCMO™) platform – which features the industry’s highest-performance MEMS architecture – the TM651 offers system designers a better alternative to existing quartz and MEMS-based timing solutions.
Tektronix Inc., a leading worldwide provider of test, measurement and monitoring instrumentation, introduced the MDO4000B series of mixed domain oscilloscopes that features significantly enhanced spectrum analyzer performance and, when used with Tektronix SignalVu-PC, the industry’s widest bandwidth vector signal analysis capability and deep support for WLAN 802.11 a/b/g/j/n/p/ac testing.
Rohde & Schwarz has developed the R&S ZN-Z84 switch matrix, an up to 48-port solution for testing multiport components. The matrix can be controlled and operated directly from an R&S ZNB network analyzer.
