National Instruments released its Automated Test Outlook 2013 highlighting the company’s research into the latest test and measurement technologies and methodologies. The report examines trends affecting a variety of industries.
IQD’s new IQOV-150 series OCXO satisfies the growing demand for low phase noise reference clocks for ADC and DAC, especially for very fast measurements and high speed data transfer.
Agilent introduced the industry's first LTE-Advanced 8x8 MIMO signal-generation and analysis solutions. The offerings complement Agilent's other industry-first solutions for the LTE-Advanced standard.
octoScope Inc. announced a logic implementation of its MIMO octoFade™ wireless testing solution. When applied to a wireless signal using digital signal processing, channel emulation makes the signal appear as though it has traversed a realistic space, having been reflected from walls, cars, people or other surfaces.
The MS2720T features a touchscreen, full-band tracking generators to 20 GHz, and best-in-class performance for dynamic range, DANL, phase noise, and sweep speed, providing unprecedented levels of spectrum monitoring, hidden signal detection, RF/microwave measurements, and testing of microwave backhauls and cellular signals.
Spectracom announced its new Pulsed RF Counter/Analyzer, which further expands the capabilities of the company’s world leading line of frequency analysis instruments.
Anritsu Co. introduces the MG3740A analog signal generator that outputs AM/FM/ΦM test signals for evaluation of narrowband analog radio equipment used in public safety networks and private commercial networks.
Aeroflex Ltd. announced that the industry-standard TM500 LTE-A Single UE Test Mobile has added support for 3GPP Release 10 (Rel-10) Transmission Mode 9 (TM9), which allows enhanced network capability and performance by flexible use of MIMO with minimum additional overhead.
Aeroflex Ltd., a wholly owned subsidiary of Aeroflex Holding Corp., now offers its 5800 Series multi-functional test system with a Virginia Panel interface, an industry-standard interface used by test fixture manufacturers around the world.
This application note is designed to help you get insight into solving tough measurement problems in a unique way for both the design and manufacturing environments by explaining how to use simulated satellite signals to quickly and accurately verify GNSS receiver operation.
The successful proliferation of GNSS receivers worldwide requires today’s engineers to effectively test GNSS receivers with multi-GNSS signals. A real-time GNSS simulator like the N7609B, with its flexibility, functionality and performance is well suited to address this task. Combined with the power of an EXG/MXG X-Series signal generator, it provides the real-time simulation of GPS, GLONASS and Galileo L1/E1 signals that is so critical to quickly and accurately testing today’s GNSS receivers.
This White Paper provides a general overview of different military and commercial radar systems. It also covers typical measurements on such systems and their components. This application note details radar test technology along with the specific products needed to perform the tests.More
Overview of Tests on Radar Systems and Components
The scope of the subject has expanded in the recent years in terms of its technical evolution and spreading of applications. This application note along with its corresponding white paper
1MA207 show how to use the R&S radar product portfolio to tackle test and measurement tasks in modern radar technology. Target groups are students who want to become familiar with radar issues as well as radar professionals who want to solve certain test and measurement tasks.
Poor de-embedding can lead to both passivity and causality errors. In addition, high fixture loss may affect the accuracy and repeatability of de-embedding. Achieving accurate measurements at these higher frequencies offers the advantage of improved ability to locate discontinuities, impedance changes, and crosstalk issues.
