Test and Measurement Channel
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.
