Test and Measurement Channel
Teseq has expanded its capability in field probe calibration to deliver calibration data at all frequencies defined in the IEC 61000-4-3 standard.
W. L. Gore & Associates Inc. has added a rugged 18 GHz cable assembly to its GORE® PHASEFLEX® Microwave/RF Test Assemblies line. The assembly is specifically engineered for T&M applications that require precise, repeatable measurements.
Agilent Technologies Inc. announced significant enhancements to its midrange N9020A MXA X-Series signal analyzer. New options for 160-MHz analysis bandwidth and real-time spectrum analyzer (RTSA) capability address the challenges of measuring interference in the next generation of heterogeneous wireless networks.
Manufacturers and test houses can now use the R&S VTC and R&S VTE video testers from Rohde & Schwarz to test next-generation HDMI sink devices with ultra-HD or 4k screen resolution. This is possible thanks to the new R&S VT-B360 HDMI TX 300 MHz HDMI module, which is equipped with four parallel HDMI channels with ultra-HD resolution. Tests can be performed on TVs, monitors, projectors and A/V receivers with conventional screen resolutions as well.
Analog Devices Inc. (ADI) introduced a wireless vibration sensing system that allows industrial systems operators to remotely monitor production equipment health, improve system performance, and reduce maintenance costs. The new networked system includes the ADIS16229 iSensor(R) wireless vibration sensor node, which combines dual-axis digital MEMs (micro-electro mechanical systems) acceleration sensing with advanced frequency-domain and time-domain signal processing.
More dynamic range and measurement speed in the microwave range: The new R&S ZNB20 and R&S ZNB40 network analyzers now offer these features in the midrange price segment as well. Like all models in the R&S ZNB family, their compact hardware platform requires less space than similar instruments. The advanced 16:9 format touchscreen makes operation easy.
A new measurement option from Rohde & Schwarz for the R&S FSW high-end signal and spectrum analyzer supports realtime signal analysis for frequencies up to 50 GHz with an analysis bandwidth of 160 MHz.
Vaunix Technology Corp., (www.vaunix.com), a manufacturer of USB controlled and powered test equipment, is pleased to announce they’ll be displaying their latest models of USB powered Lab Bricks at the International Microwave Symposium (IMS) in Seattle, WA June 4-6th in booth #2042.
Anritsu Co. (booth #938) will display test solutions to meet the high-frequency testing requirements of engineers in the aerospace and defense, communications, and semiconductor industries at IMS 2013 in Seattle, June 4-6. Featured will be the VectorStar Vector Network Analyzer (VNA) platform, which is an ideal solution for device characterization, as well as solutions for measuring components and subsystems used in radar, high-speed serial, microwave backhaul, wireless network, and other applications.
