His experience has spanned many industries including computer, wireless, automotive, aerospace and defense, as well as commercial electronics. His focus on measurable results has led customers to dramatic reductions in the cost of test, test time, reduction in work- in-progress and increasing yields while growing the Agilent presence in the account.
Anritsu introduces cutting-edge pulse measurement and true mode stimulus capabilities with VectorStar series
Anritsu Co. expands its VectorStar family of Vector Network Analyzers (VNAs) with the introduction of the MS4640B series.
Aeroflex Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Aeroflex Holding Corp., announced the introduction of the new 3920B digital radio test set for Analog AM and FM, Digital P25, P25 Phase II, DMR, NXDN™, dPMR, TETRA and TEDS technologies. The 3920B features a new low phase noise RF signal generator in addition to the already advanced functionality available on the Aeroflex 3900 Series radio test sets. The 3920B is the direct replacement for all versions of the Aeroflex 3900 Series, including the 3901, the 3902, and the 3920.
OML introduces millimeter wave intermodulation distortion (IMD) measurements to target emerging gigabit applications such as WirelessHD, WiGig, 802.11ad and E-band point-to-point radios. In these applications, the linearity of amplifiers and transceivers can adversely affect bit terror rate, especially those involving higher order modulation.
European Microwave Week is back in Germany once again. In Nuremberg, Rohde & Schwarz will present its wide range of T&M equipment for microwave applications. Experts from Rohde & Schwarz will also be holding ten workshops and seminars as part of the event program. The following test and measurement highlights will be on display in hall 7A, booth 106 at the NCC:
Fox Electronics, a leading global supplier of frequency control solutions and an IDT company, now offers the FTM Series of surface mount OCXOs that is ideally suited as the timing reference for network synchronization.
Rohde & Schwarz and its HAMEG Instruments subsidiary now market a range of favourably priced test and measurement equipment bearing the new joint "Value Instruments by Rohde & Schwarz" label.
Vaunix Technology Corp., a manufacturer of Lab Brick USB powered test equipment, has introduced a new model to its LMS series of signal generators. The LMS-271D covers a frequency range of .5 MHz to 270 MHz.
Phase Matrix Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of National Instruments, participated in the demonstration of the world's first 100 GHz real-time oscilloscope. The integrated microwave assembly designed by Phase Matrix for the demonstration is a broadband downconverter, which allows the successful acquisitioning and displaying of live signals at 100 GHz bandwidth.
Teledyne LeCroy, a subsidiary of Teledyne Technologies Inc., demonstrated the world's first 100 GHz real-time oscilloscope by successfully acquiring and displaying live signals at 100 GHz bandwidth. This demonstrated performance dramatically exceeds currently available capabilities. High speed oscilloscopes are vital tools in the development of high-speed digital networks, the critical backbone of the rapidly expanding cloud-based computing paradigm that characterizes our digital age.
