Anritsu Co., a founding member of the Open Lab Alliance (OLA), announces its Signal Analyzer MS2692A DSRC (Dedicated Short Range Communications) test solution has now been added to the portfolio of products offered at the CETECOM OLA Lab in Milpitas, Calif. The integration of the MS2692A enhances the test capability of the OLA laboratory, which has been established to accelerate the development of connected vehicle and autonomous vehicle technologies with a major focus on the DSRC V2X (vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-infrastructure) technology.
Rohde & Schwarz follows the call to London to attend European Microwave Week, where the company will demonstrate its T&M highlights for demanding applications in the aerospace & defense, automotive and wireless industries. In focus: test solutions for satellite communications, for radar applications in the A&D and automotive sectors and for the next generation of mobile networks 5G.
Anritsu Co. introduces the ultraportable Site Master™ S331P, the lightest, smallest, fastest and most cost-efficient Site Master field cable and antenna analyzer ever developed. The S331P provides wireless operators and contractors, DAS installers,and public safety network installers and maintenance professionals with the first pocket-sized headless cable and antenna analyzer that can measure the new LTE-U frequencies.
Keysight Technologies Inc. announced that Mark Wallace will succeed Guy Séné as head of Keysight's global sales organization on Nov. 1, 2016. Séné will remain as an advisor through the end of the company's first fiscal quarter, Jan. 31, 2017, when he will retire.
Accel-RF Instruments will showcases the world’s only line of fully integrated, modular platform, plug-and-play, completely automated accelerated life test systems at EDI CON USA, taking place September 20-22 in Boston, Mass.
This application note compares the commonly-implemented power measurement test setups for TVAC with a new test method that uses TVAC-qualified LAN power sensors. The paper explains how this new test method provides a simplified test setup, and more accurate and reliable microwave power measurements for TVAC testing of satellite equipment.
Cloud computing, smart phones, and LTE services are causing a large increase in network traffic. Instantaneous traffic rates at internet data centers have reached 1 Tbit/s. Supporting this increased traffic, speed of IT equipment used in high-end services in data centers must be increased. This white paper discusses challenges introduced at these higher data rates and how Vector Network Analyzers can help meet these.
Vector Network Analyzers (VNA) are your primary resource when analyzing and characterizing systems and components for RF and Microwave measurements. They are regarded as accurate measuring instruments, however, quantifying the accuracy performance of a VNA in a specific application can be challenging. VNA specifications are a starting point; but, they are based upon very specific calibration and measurement conditions, which are not applicable for many applications.
This paper is designed to help network engineers, network planners, and network operations understand how to deploy Precision Time Protocol (PTP, or IEEE 1588). PTP is a next generation, packetbased timing protocol targeted for use in asynchronous network infrastructures based on packet transport technologies.
This field brief will discuss phase-matching cables, S-parameter definitions as they apply to cable characterization and other cable parameters such as Phase Shift and Group Delay. Advanced Time-Domain measurements will also be presented as enhancements to the well-known Distance-to-Fault (DTF) techniques. In addition, diagnostic tools like the Smith Chart will be briefly described.
The oscilloscope is arguably one of the most useful tools ever created for use by electronic engineers. In the more than five decades since the modern analog oscilloscope was created, hundreds of useful documents and thousands of articles have been written about what it is, how it works, how to use it, and application-specific examples of the oscilloscope in action. It is the purpose of this primer to instead describe digital oscilloscopes, which have for practical purposes replaced their analog predecessors in the vast majority of applications.
To amplify weak signals received by the antenna in communication systems, low noise amplifiers (LNAs) are deployed. LNAs are used in various applications such as GPS receivers, wireless data systems, satellite communications, cellular handsets, radio systems, etc.
