Anritsu Co. will be exhibiting the new P25 Phase 2 TDMA analysis capability of its S412E LMR Master, as part of its portfolio of test solutions to address the key technologies associated with public safety networks – including LTE, narrowband and P25 – during IWCE 2013 in Las Vegas, March 11-15.
Aeroflex Inc. announced the POCSAG testing option for the 3920 Series Digital Radio Test Set. With this option, the 3920 Series can now be used to verify the operation of POCSAG pagers and paging systems.
AR RF/Microwave Instrumentation has introduced the Model 350AH1 solid state amplifier. This portable, self-contained, 350 watt/10 Hz to 1 MHz unit provides power, durability and dependability along with the versatility for a wide range of applications.
Agilent Technologies Inc. announced that all new Agilent electronic test instruments sold after this date will be covered by a “bumper-to-bumper” three-year repair warranty. The increase from one year to three years is the result of ongoing quality initiatives that, from 2002 to 2012, yielded unprecedented improvements in product reliability and earned top marks in an independent customer survey rating RF and microwave product quality.
Teseq Inc., a leading developer and provider of instrumentation and systems for EMC emission and immunity testing, now offers a double-ridged horn antenna that has a frequency range of 6 to 18 GHz. The new PMM DR-01 is designed for radiated emissions and immunity applications, featuring an antenna factor of 36 dB/m to 41 dB/m and excellent sensitivity for emissions measurements.
Rohde & Schwarz adds the rugged, passive R&S RT ZZ80 broadband probe to its portfolio. This probe offers a bandwidth of 8 GHz. When analyzing electronic circuits, passive broadband probes such as the R&S RT-ZZ80 are a cost-efficient, rugged alternative to active, high bandwidth probes. They are well-suited for testing transmission lines with low impedance (20 Ohm to 100 Ohm).
Anritsu Co. introduces Windows-based remote control software for its PIM Master MW82119A, the industry’s first high-power, battery-operated, portable PIM test analyzer. With the software, field technicians on the ground can control an MW82119A configured on top of the tower, making it easier and more efficient to conduct highly accurate PIM measurements, especially for difficult-to-access sites, such as Remote Radio Head (RRH) installations.
Agilent Technologies Inc. introduced its new E6607C EXT wireless communications test set, featuring an integrated multiport adapter for cost-effective, high-volume wireless device manufacturing test. Optimized for testing multiple devices simultaneously, the EXT-C with integrated multiport adapter enables up to 3x gain in effective test throughput (vs. the EXT-B) for less than 1.3x the price.
Lake Shore announces a new continuously variable temperature (CVT) probe, developed in collaboration with TOYO Corp., that allows for true, continuous unattended wafer probing of a material sample across a range of temperatures. The probes, when used in any Lake Shore probe station, significantly improve reliability of sample measurement.
Rohde & Schwarz has tailored its mid-range measuring instruments to handle WLAN signals in line with IEEE 802.11ac. Using the R&S SMBV100A and R&S FSV, manufacturers of WLAN chipsets, components and devices can now easily generate and analyze signals with 160 MHz bandwidth.
