Ted Rappaport, founding director of NYU WIRELESS and a leading proponent of using the millimeter wave spectrum for wireless communications, discusses the FCC's recent rulemaking actions and technology developments that are paving the way to 5G.
Agilent Technologies Inc. announced it will demonstrate a wide range of new high-performance, flexible test solutions for designing and testing components for radar systems, antennas and next-generation wireless devices at European Microwave Week (Booth 105) Oct. 6-11 at the Nürnberg Convention Center in Nuremberg, Germany.
If you are assessing the power conversion efficiency of your power amplifiers, you are probably making power-added efficiency (PAE) measurements. Most PAE test setups use multiple instruments – such as RF power meters, digital oscilloscopes and DC power analyzers – to calculate RF voltage and current measurements.
Agilent Technologies Inc. announced that SystemVue, its premier platform for communications and aerospace/defense systems design, supports high-performance distributed computing. System architects of wireless, 4G smartphone and radar applications can now verify next-generation system performance up to 64 times faster using Linux-based grid computing managers such as the IBM Platform Load Sharing Facility.
Agilent Technologies Inc. introduced the next generation of optical modulation analysis software for its family of optical modulation analyzers. The new software makes it easy for photonic engineers to set up tests on their optical modulation analyzers, increasing test efficiency by cutting the number of steps in half. By automating the execution of tests, the software also minimizes testing errors.
Agilent introduced MIPI™ M-PHY physical layer receiver and transmitter tests with switch automation. The tests are designed to accelerate the turn-on and debug of MIPI M-PHY-based systems and provide design engineers an efficient way to ensure M-PHY devices interoperate with the application processor.
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.
