The number of high frequency, high power applications is rapidly increasing each year. The need for resistors with both high frequency performance and high power handling capability is growing. In most cases, the smaller the resistor, the better it will perform at high frequencies.
As wireless telecommunication features continue to expand into vir¬tually every control and sense technology in military, industrial, and domestic environments, a wide array of new wireless transmitters and transmitter components will need to be designed, prototyped, calibrated, and analyzed for quality assurance.
The VSG25A hardware features a 12-bit I/Q baseband arbitrary waveform generator which can be clocked at virtually any frequency from 54 kHz to 180 MHz, and includes a 4096 x 16 bit pattern buffer for built-in or custom modulation. The included software automatically generates CW: 100 MHz to 2.5 GHz, -40 dBm to +10 dBm, AM / FM: 30 Hz to 40 MHz modulation rates, sine, triangle, square, ramp and pulse: 6 ns to 25 ms width, 12 ns to 1 second period.
Signal Hound, a leader in high-performance, USB-based RF test and measurement products, announced a revolutionary new vector signal generator (VSG) that breaks price barriers. It is USB-powered, weighs just 130 grams, and fits into a shirt pocket.
Signal Houndannounced a significant software upgrade called Spike. The new Spike software allows the SA's to function as real-time spectrum analyzers for sweeps of 250 kHz and less - that means every RF event will be captured when using spans that are equal to or less than 250 kHz. Another improvement is sweep speeds that are up to 8x faster for spans between 500 kHz and 2 MHz. In addition, the SA graphics now include color persistence and a 2D waterfall display.
Signal Hound, the pioneer and leader in high-performance USB-powered spectrum analyzers, announced the availability of a white paper entitled, "Cost-efficient and Extensible RF Spectrum Monitoring & Management".
