CTS Electronic Components Inc. announces development of Model 148, oven controlled crystal oscillator (OCXO), which use the unique SC cut crystal technology to significantly reduce power consumption (0.23W at +25ºC) and allow for additional board space with its miniature-sized package.
Aeroflex Inc. announced the addition of enhanced VSWR (return loss) and distance to fault to the tracking generator functionality of the Aeroflex 3550 Digital Radio Test System. By utilizing the sweep of the tracking generator, the 3550 can measure and display the VSWR of an antenna or find the location of one or more faults in a cable.
Anritsu Co. introduces the MA2700A InterferenceHunter handheld direction finding system that enhances interference mapping and simplifies locating interference sources in wireless networks. Designed for use with Anritsu’s BTS Master™, Cell Master™, Site Master™ and Spectrum Master™ handheld analyzers, the MA2700A InterferenceHunter can be used by field engineers and technicians during deployment, installation, and maintenance of wireless networks. It is ideally suited for use in spectrum clearing and interference mitigation.
Vaunix Technology Corp. announced the addition of eight new models to its LMS Series of signal generators. The additions are in response to customer demand for defined frequency bands through 4 GHz, specifically 70 to 450 MHz, 250 to 1500 MHz, 600 to 3200 MHz, and 1000 to 4000 MHz.
Aeroflex Inc. has announced its capability to simulate WAAS (Wide Area Augmentation System) LPV (Localizer Performance with Vertical Guidance) approaches by adding this critical new feature to their GPSG-1000 Portable GPS Simulator.
RF Monolithics Inc. (a subsidiary of Murata Electronics North America Inc.) (“RFM” or “the company”), a provider of solutions-driven, technology-enabled RF technologies for machine-to-machine (M2M) and wireless communications, introduced the next generation of its wireless sensor networking platform products -- the SN-4 series of battery-powered wireless sensor nodes. The SN-4 provides 4 channels of sensor inputs and transmits the data back to access points, Ethernet, or Cellular gateways.
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.
