R&S SMW200A generates RF and envelope signals in realtime to test envelope tracking performance of PAs
Rohde & Schwarz has enhanced its new R&S SMW200A high-end vector signal generator by adding the R&S SMW K540 option for envelope tracking. This option enables quick and easy testing of envelope tracking power amplifiers for smartphones, base stations and tactical radios.
Coilcraft Inc. will be participating in the 16th European Microwave Week, being held October 6-11 at the Nürnberg Convention Center, Nuremberg, Germany. The Coilcraft exhibit will include its broad range of wirewound component families, each providing best-in-class performance across market applications. The Exhibition portion of the event runs Tuesday, October 8th through Thursday, October 10th.
Wainwright Instruments introduces UHF/microwave band reject filters that can be tuned by computer with intuitively usable software or directly by simple LAN Telnet protocol. The passband up to 2.5 or 5.0 GHz resp. makes these filters especially suitable for measuring harmonics in laboratory applications and automated test stations in production lines.
Computer Simulation Technology AG (CST) and Optenni Ltd (Optenni) are collaborating to provide engineers with design tools for MIMO antenna optimization. These tools for multiport matching will be demonstrated at European Microwave Week (EuMW) 2013, booth #103, and in a free webinar on October 24.
Infineon Technologies has started the production of its BGTx0 chipsets for wireless backhaul communication systems. The transceiver family provides a complete radio frequency (RF) front-end for wireless communication in 57-64 GHz, 71-76 GHz, or 81-86 GHz millimeter wave bands. Paired with a baseband/modem, the system solution requires less space, offers improved reliability and lower cost for the critical wireless backhaul links needed in mobile base stations that support LTE/4G networks.
Auriga Microwave is exhibiting at EuMW 2013, in booth #D104. On display will be Auriga's AU4850, a pulsed IV/RF characterization system, and its fourth generation component test system: CTS-4.
RFMW Ltd. announces immediate availability for Carlisle Interconnect Technologies WMP series of sub-miniature, blind-mate interconnect solutions. The WMP series is ideal for complex, high performance microwave modules and systems where the use of a light weight connector is a primary issue. The WMP series feature set makes them a perfect solution in military radios, radars, space, and test applications.
KRYTAR Inc., a leader in the design and production of ultra-broadband microwave components and test equipment announces the continued expansion of its line of directional couplers with the addition of three new models offering high performance over the ultra-broadband frequency range of 0.5 to 26.5 GHz, each in a single, compact and lightweight package.
