One of AR's Radiated Immunity Test Systems (model AS04210M2) was recently installed at Kidde Safety, Colorado Springs, Colo. The unit, which tests to IEC61000-4-3 standards, will be used to test Kidde's fire and safety products.
Test and measurement products from HAMEG Instruments are now directly available from Rohde & Schwarz almost anywhere in the world, which has prompted the decision to brand these products with a new logo that contains the names of both companies. This move is intended to further increase the brand awareness and growth of HAMEG Instruments and within the next three months, the dual logo will be introduced in nearly all regions.
Giga-tronics announced that Liberty Test Equipment featured a suite of Giga-tronics’ high-performance RF and microwave test and measurement equipment at the DesignCon conference in Santa Clara, Calif., on January 31 through February 1, 2012.
Agilent Technologies Inc. introduced enhancements to its N7109A multi-channel signal analyzer for emerging multichannel LTE, LTE-Advanced and MIMO RF measurement requirements, including LTE antenna beamforming and LTE-Advanced carrier aggregation.
Anritsu Co. announced its MP1800A BER Tester was part of a live demonstration of 25-28 Gb/s CDR retimers designed to support emerging 100 Gb/s networking applications that was conducted by Gennum Corp., a supplier of high-speed optical, analog and mixed signal semiconductor solutions.
Rohde & Schwarz is taking a completely new approach to measuring radiated spurious emissions on LTE devices, making it considerably easier for users to measure RSE in the presence of LTE carrier power. The solution is the R&S OSP open switch and control platform equipped with the new R&S OSP-B155 option.
When network operators upgrade to LTE they want to take full advantage of their new and existing resources, so to support this objective, Rohde & Schwarz has added MIMO-specific measurements to its R&S ROMES4.65 drive test software. Using this feature, the R&S TSMW network scanner can quickly identify interferers that reduce MIMO performance in LTE networks.
Link Microtek has invested in a state-of-the-art environmental test chamber at its premises in the centre of Basingstoke, UK. The new Design Environmental Alpha 335H test chamber also supports the company's design-and-build service for RF and microwave subsystems.
