Aeroflex Limited, a wholly owned subsidiary of Aeroflex Holding Corp., announced today that the TM500 LTE-A Test Mobile and the E500 Capacity Test System now both support the aggregation of three component carriers (3 CC). Carrier aggregation of 3 CC allows mobile network operators to achieve data rates of up to 450 Mbit/s on their LTE-A networks.
Agilent Technologies Inc. announced it will demonstrate its latest PXI Functional Test System, plus boundary scan and latest inline in-circuit test systems, at NEPCON EMT China 2014 (Booth 1G60), April 23-25, at the Shanghai World Expo Exhibition & Convention Center.
Anritsu Corporation Microwave Measurement Division (MMD) announces that the China National Institute of Metrology (NIM) Microwave Parameters Lab has selected the Anritsu VectorStar™ ME7838A 110 GHz broadband Vector Network Analyzer (VNA) system. The lab will use the advanced test solution to develop standards for on-wafer S-parameter calibration procedures.
Peregrine Semiconductor Corp., founder of RF SOI (silicon on insulator) and pioneer of advanced RF solutions, introduces its next-generation, UltraCMOS PE4312 DSA. Successor to the popular PE4302 – which boasts more than 35 million units shipped since its introduction – the new PE4312 enables flexible, wide dynamic-range network-infrastructure designs that require highly accurate and efficient amplitude control. This DSA upgrade is ideally suited for wireless-infrastructure devices, broadband consumer and infrastructure equipment, land mobile radios (LMRs), test-and-measurement equipment and military RF applications.
As worldwide Mobile Broadband Traffic heads toward 200 Exabytes per year, operators deploy 4G LTE, LTE-A, plead for spectrum, and try to manage usage through policy and pricing. The physics of mobile broadband radio do not follow Moore’s Law of digital scaling, so leading-edge operators are ready to address the physical realities of small cells. Nevertheless, the question remains; why not deploy carrier grade Wi-Fi with the small cells?
