RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for two new broad band, high-performance switches from Peregrine Semiconductor. Targeting the test and measurement market, the PE42520 and PE42521 SPDT switches offer performance to 13GHz at a 36dBm power rating. The resulting input IP3 (IIP3) is 66dBm while IIP2 is 115 dBm.
More dynamic range and measurement speed in the microwave range: The new R&S ZNB20 and R&S ZNB40 network analyzers now offer these features in the midrange price segment as well. Like all models in the R&S ZNB family, their compact hardware platform requires less space than similar instruments. The advanced 16:9 format touchscreen makes operation easy.
Mesuro launches a new test solution that provides the industry substantial benefits in approaches to device characterization test. The new offering utilizes an ‘envelope load pull technique’, along with the latest generation of commercial off-the-shelf PXI hardware and LabVIEW system design software from National Instruments, to provide extremely rapid test scenarios to be run on the device under test.
With the introduction of the new R&S RTM series, Rohde & Schwarz has expanded the functional range of its bench oscilloscopes. The key upgrades are a 20 Msample deep memory and a logic analysis option with 16 digital channels. The smart operating concept of the new R&S RTM models ensures extreme ease of use.
Rohde & Schwarz launched the R&S SMW200A high-end vector signal generator that combines maximum flexibility, outstanding performance and intuitive operation, making it the ideal tool for generating complex, digitally modulated signals.
AWT Global has launched a new line of field strength meters with spectrum analyzer capability: The UBA 9290 Series. The battery operated, handheld analyzers are well suited for wireless field applications but are also a very useful tool in the RF laboratory.
BeSpoon, a fabless semiconductor company, and CEA-Leti have demonstrated an IR-UWB integrated circuit able to measure distances within a few centimeters’ accuracy, and have established a world-record operating range at 880 m (standard regulation) and 3,641 m (emergency situations).
