TriQuint Semiconductor Inc., an RF solutions supplier and technology innovator, is enabling next-generation 802.11ac Wi-Fi and a superior wireless user experience with the introduction of three new high-performance WLAN front-end modules and two advanced Wi-Fi/4G coexistence filters.
Anritsu Co. introduces three software packages supporting LTE-Advanced and five packages supporting IEEE802.11ac that extend the analysis capability of its MS269xA/MS2830A signal analyzers and MG3710A/MG3700A vector signal generators. With the software installed in the instruments, developers and manufacturers of LTE-Advanced UEs and components, as well as wireless LAN (WLAN) modules and devices have accurate solutions to verify performance, speed time-to-market, and lower cost-of-test.
Aeroflex Ltd., a wholly owned subsidiary of Aeroflex Holding Corp., announced a new test system based on its PXI 3000 Series modular instrumentation, which has been designed to offer measurements over a 160 MHz bandwidth at operating frequencies up to 6 GHz. The new system is particularly suited for making R&D, design verification, and production measurements on wireless LAN (WLAN) devices based on the IEEE 802.11ac standard, extending Aeroflex's market-leading 802.11ac measurement capability in PXI to cover the optional 160 MHz bandwidth.
Agilent Technologies Inc. extended its leadership in 802.11ac WLAN test solutions with its latest measurement application release for X-Series signal analyzers.
Cisco remains on the top spot of the enterprise Wireless Local Area Networks (WLAN) equipment market with 36 percent of the world market share followed by ZTE and Aruba based on shipments. Cisco has a dominating presence in North America and European markets, but is increasingly losing ground from close competition from ZTE in APAC, Latin America, and MEA.
National Instruments introduced test solutions for 802.11ac WLAN and Bluetooth low-energy technology that combine NI graphical system design software and modular, FPGA-based PXI instrumentation to provide high-performance test capabilities that are completely user-programmable. These test solutions along with other cellular, navigation and wireless connectivity solutions from NI, help engineers thoroughly test their devices on a single high-performance platform.
Aeroflex Ltd., a wholly owned subsidiary of Aeroflex Holding Corp., announced that it has added IEEE 802.11ac capability to its S-Series RF signal generator and analyzer product line. First introduced in 2010, the S-Series offers top-of-the-range performance at a mid-range price.
