Analog Devices Inc. announced the availability of a low-cost hardware-software solution focusing on circuit testing designed for the engineering education market. This offering combines MATLAB software and Analog Devices’ Digilent Analog Discovery Design kits, enabling students to experiment quickly and easily with advanced technologies and build, test and analyze real-world, functional analog design circuits anytime – anywhere – for the price of a textbook.
Azimuth Systems Inc., a provider of automated, real-world mobile performance test solutions, announced the availability of AzMapper 2.5, the latest version of its mapping and analysis application for real world performance testing. AzMapper, a critical component of Azimuth’s Field-to-Lab™ solution, enables raw data collected with drive test scanners to be thoroughly analyzed and used to recreate that same radio environment through intelligent mapping of the logged field conditions to the available lab testbed.
Tektronix Inc., announced that it will enter the power analyzer instrument market and introduce a full new product line in the coming months. To facilitate this move, Tektronix has implemented a technology transfer agreement which includes power analyzer intellectual property, patents and product designs from its partner Voltech, which will exit the power analyzer segment of its business by September 30, 2013.
Tektronix Inc. announced that lab testing has shown that its next generation performance oscilloscopes - due for availability in 2014 - will deliver real-time bandwidth of 70 GHz, with significant upside potential. The new oscilloscope platform will deliver the performance and signal fidelity needed for applications such as 400 Gbps and 1 Tbps optical communications and fourth generation serial data communications.
Tektronix Inc. unveiled its next generation of arbitrary waveform generators that offer up to 50 GS/s sample rate performance. The new AWG70000 Series supports a wide range of demanding signal generation requirements.
Tektronix Inc. announced the industry’s first demonstration of a M-PHY test solution for silicon-proven HS-Gear3 IP, a key part of the MIPI Alliance M-PHY physical layer specification for mobile devices. The Tektronix test solution allows designers to quickly and efficiently characterize designs and verify performance.
Anritsu Co. announces the Toughest Site Competition 2013 that recognizes the challenges faced every day by field engineers and technicians responsible for deploying, installing, and maintaining wireless networks. The contest, which runs until June 30, 2013, highlights how field professionals overcome harsh weather conditions, extreme environments, and technical challenges to ensure the operation of private and commercial wireless networks.
