Agilent Technologies Inc. announced that AT4 wireless has selected Agilent test equipment to provide certification testing services for LTE-Advanced/Carrier Aggregation (LTE-A/CA).
Vaunix , a manufacturer of USB controlled and powered test equipment, has announced the addition of two new models to its family of LDA series digital attenuators. This product family now offers attenuators with up to 120 dB of programmable attenuation through 6,000 MHz.
Anritsu Co. announces that it has validated 100 percent of the tests required by NTT DoCoMo for the Summer 2014 model mobile phones using the flexible ME7834L Mobile Device Test Platform. Achievement of this level of validation uniquely positions the ME7834L as the only test system with the ability to offer complete coverage for DoCoMo requirements, building on Anritsu’s #1 positions for Summer 2013 and Winter 2013 test requirements.
Agilent Technologies revealed the name of the electronic measurement company it expects to spin off in early November 2014 as Keysight Technologies. The name Keysight conveys the ability to see what others cannot, offering the critical or key insights to understand and unlock the changing technology landscape.
Anritsu Co. announces it has worked with Qualcomm Technologies Inc. a wholly owned subsidiary of Qualcomm Inc., to successfully demonstrate peak throughput for a Category 6 LTE device and network simulator using 20+20 MHz carrier aggregation (CA). The two companies have jointly performed tests with a device based on the new Qualcomm® Gobi™ 9x35 modem, the world’s first LTE Advanced World Mode Category 6 chipset solution.
Average peak throughputs as high as 144 Mbps were recorded in TeliaSonera’s commercial 4G network using Anite’s Nemo Outdoor test platform and a Cat 4 LTE test terminal Samsung Galaxy Note 3.
AMETEK Inc. has acquired the Teseq Group, a leading manufacturer of test and measurement instrumentation for EMC testing, for $92 million.
Anritsu Co. announces a working cooperation with Wild River Technology. The two companies are collaborating to provide test solutions that meet the rigorous test requirements associated with high-speed serial data interconnects, SERDES testing, cables, and backplanes used in NGNs.
Coilcraft CPS (Critical Products and Services) has announced a new product testing and validation service to help electronics manufacturers determine the reliability, repeatability and/or compliance of the electronic components and assemblies they manufacture or procure.
Anite, a global leader in wireless equipment testing technology, announced that it has launched full support for the Global Certification Forum (GCF) LTE data throughput performance testing requirements. This will enable mobile operators and device manufacturers to cost-efficiently test the data throughput performance of new devices in real-world conditions.
