Test and Measurement
An agreement-in-principle has been reached between Altair and EMSS, pursuant to which Altair will acquire 100 percent of EM Software & Systems and its international distributor offices in the United States, Germany, and China.
China Mobile Ltd. has purchased FIME’s EMV®contactless analogue test bench and FIME will additionally offer consultancy services and carry out pre-certification vendor handset testing.
Anite, together with HiSilicon has verified Release 10 LTE-Advanced protocols in HiSilicon’s newly developed LTE-A chipset.
Rohde & Schwarz has expanded the functionality of its R&S FSV and R&S FSW signal and spectrum analyzers to also support the IEEE 802.11p wireless standard. The new R&S FSV-K91p and R&S FSW-K91p measurement options are especially designed for IEEE 802.11p compliant signal analysis in V2V applications and ITS.
Anite has announced that it is the first to launch an 802.11ac (WiFi) capable standalone channel emulation solution with continuous 160 MHz bandwidth support. This new capability will allow chipset manufacturers to accelerate development of new 802.11ac Phase two WiFi products.
600 engineers and scientists attended the UK & Ireland NI Days Graphical System Design Conference that was held at the QEII Conference Centre in London
The testing of novel future generation communication systems, next-generation wireless communication and electronically steerable antennae were just three initiatives honoured at the annual National Instruments UK & Ireland Graphical System Design Achievement Awards.
Rohde & Schwarz and NTT DOCOMO have joined forces to develop an interoperability test package. NTT DOCOMO has now validated the package as NTT DOCOMO approved test equipment.
Rohde & Schwarz has developed the R&S ZN-Z84 switch matrix, an up to 48-port solution for testing multiport components. The matrix can be controlled and operated directly from an R&S ZNB network analyzer.
Rohde & Schwarz and HiSilicon have successfully implemented the requirements for device category 6 in compliance with 3GPP Release 10 for LTE-Advanced.

Solutions for LTE Design and Verification Enabling fast, accurate and efficient functional testing of LTE user equipment
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.
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.
RF transmitters are an essential part of modern communications. Designed and assembled from core RF components, RF transmitters have many different forms and applications. We often think of RF transmitters in wireless communications, but the concept applies equally to wired applications such as cable television.
