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.
Keysight Technologies Inc. announced its first PXI Express source/measurement unit, the M9111A, purpose-built for design validation and production test of next-generation power amplifiers and front-end modules supporting cellular and wireless connectivity formats.
Cobham Wireless, a global leader in the provision of advanced wireless coverage and mobile communication systems, has announced that the industry-standard TM500 network test system now supports the validation of 4G networks and base stations using carrier aggregation of up to five individual component carriers (5CC).
Anritsu Co. continues its industry leadership position in wireless test with the announcement that its ME7873L RF Conformance Test System has achieved GCF-approved test case validation for LTE evolved Multimedia Broadcast Multicast Services (eMBMS) Band 4 and Band 13 RF conformance test cases.
Agilent Technologies Inc. announced that its EXM wireless test set now supports 4x4 True MIMO capability for WLAN design and validation, with up to four TRXs testing multiple-input, multiple-output antenna characteristics simultaneously. This capability further advances the gigabit era for WLAN evolution, especially the rapidly evolving 802.11ac technology.
Coilcraft CPS (Critical Products and Services) has announced a new product testing and validation service to help electronics manufacturers determine the reliability, repeatability and/or compliance of the electronic components and assemblies they manufacture or procure.
Anritsu Co. announces its market-leading ME7873L RF/RRM Conformance Test System and ME7834L Mobile Device Test Platform have received the most test case validations across a single platform type for LTE-Advanced Carrier Aggregation (CA). This breakthrough further affirms Anritsu’s commitment to provide solutions for certification testing of mobile devices that implement CA, one of the key LTE-Advanced features defined in 3GPP Release 10.
Boundary scan has become an indispensable technology as engineers face increasing test access challenges. The x1149 boundary scan analyzer is a versatile yet easy to use board test tool designed to help users through board design and validation, and re-using the same x1149 test in manufacturing.
