Aeroflex announced that its TM500 Test Mobile has added support for the 3GPP WCDMA Release 10 standard, the latest evolution of the HSPA+ standards, which adds support for MC-HSDPA (Multi Carrier High-Speed Download Packet Access).
Pico Technology has launched the PicoScope®9300 Series Sampling Oscilloscopes that can perform pre-compliance tests, fault-finding, design, debug and margin testing on serial communications signals.
Anitehas acquired Genetel SAS, a full service distributor of network testing products in France and North Africa.
Agilent Technologies Inc. and Tyndall National Institute at University College Cork, Ireland opened a new laboratory for research and teaching in next-generation wireless communications.
A unique feature of the tried and tested R&S NRP power sensors is their ability to work independently of a specific base unit. The sensors can be connected directly to a PC or laptop via USB. Rohde & Schwarz has now implemented this feature for compact smartphones and tablet PCs as well.
Aeroflex Ltd. announced the launch of the TM500 Multi-UE LTE-A Test Mobile, which supports carrier aggregation across multiple mobile terminals or UE. Carrier aggregation, a key component of LTE-A, allows multiple carriers comprised of either contiguous or non-contiguous spectrum to be added together, allowing wider channel bandwidths -- and higher data rates -- to be achieved.
Phase Matrix's newest addition to the QuickSyn® line of microwave frequency synthesizers is a 10 GHz synthesizer housed in a very compact package, only 4 x 4 x 0.8 inches. The new synthesizer, model FSL-0010, employs the revolutionary phase-refining QuickSyn technology, which allows this line of signal sources to perform with remarkably low phase noise, switch between frequencies very quickly, and consume power efficiently.
Agilent introduced MIPI™ M-PHY physical layer receiver and transmitter tests with switch automation. The tests are designed to accelerate the turn-on and debug of MIPI M-PHY-based systems and provide design engineers an efficient way to ensure M-PHY devices interoperate with the application processor.
TESEQ, a leading developer and provider of instrumentation and systems for EMC emission and immunity testing, have expanded its capability in field probe calibration to deliver calibration data at all frequencies defined in the IEC 61000-4-3 standard.
