Rogers Corp. will be displaying three of its leading high-performance circuit materials for mobile and fixed-site antennas at the upcoming Mobile Antenna Systems 2012 conference and exhibition. This key event for designers and specifiers of antennas for a wide range of fixed and mobile applications is scheduled for September 18-19, 2012 at the Hyatt Denver Tech Center (Denver, CO).
Agilent Technologies Inc. announced it will present a wide range of recently introduced ATE instruments and software at AUTOTESTCON 2012 (Booth 513). The show runs Sept. 11-13 at the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, CA.
Azimuth Systems, Inc., a provider of comprehensive real world wireless test solutions for 2G/3G/4G, LTE-Advanced and beyond, announced that its new ACE™ MX2 MIMO channel emulator supports advanced testing configurations such as MU-MIMO, InterRAT, and Carrier Aggregation scenarios.
A new forecast published today indicates that multi-mode, multi-band handsets and MIMO will drive staggering growth in the number of RF components shipped for mobile devices. By 2017, annual sales of 3 billion mobile devices will drive almost 20 billion different bands and operating modes.
The CTIA MIMO Expert Forum brought together technologists from ETS-Lindgren, Agilent Technologies, Spirent Communications and EB (Elektrobit) to discuss the challenges of OTA testing. The “Top Ten” questions received from attendees at last year’s CTIA MIMO Expert Forum are answered below.
Extensive efforts are underway to standardize on a next generation platform for performance testing of wireless devices, taking into account LTE, A-GPS, uncertainty budgets and use of head/hand phantoms. This Forum provides an understanding of system performance and presents the core elements - such as the chamber, software and instrumentation - that facilitate systematic and repeatable measurements of MIMO devices. A panel discussion with the speakers from ETS-Lindgren, Agilent Technologies, Spirent, and Elektrobit concludes the Forum.
Madhusudhan Gurumurthy is a Senior Applications Specialist at Spirent Communications. He talked with Microwave Journal about beamforming and TD-LTE systems being deployed in China and across the globe.
Agilent Technologies Inc. announced its participation, with ETS-Lindgren, in an educational panel discussion – “MIMO OTA Measurements: The Next Generation Platform for Wireless Testing” – at the International CTIA Wireless event in New Orleans.
