Anritsu Co. announces it has worked with Qualcomm Technologies Inc. a wholly owned subsidiary of Qualcomm Inc., to successfully demonstrate peak throughput for a Category 6 LTE device and network simulator using 20+20 MHz carrier aggregation (CA). The two companies have jointly performed tests with a device based on the new Qualcomm® Gobi™ 9x35 modem, the world’s first LTE Advanced World Mode Category 6 chipset solution.
If you are assessing the power conversion efficiency of your power amplifiers, you are probably making power-added efficiency (PAE) measurements. Most PAE test setups use multiple instruments – such as RF power meters, digital oscilloscopes and DC power analyzers – to calculate RF voltage and current measurements.
Aeroflex Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Aeroflex Holding Corp., announced that it has added support for Bird Technologies' through-line Bird Wideband Power Sensors (WPS) to the industry leading 3550 Hand-held Radio Test System. The addition of the Bird 5017 and support for other Bird power sensors allows the 3550 to improve measurement accuracies for in field test applications.
Anite, a global leader in wireless testing technology, announced that, by working in close collaboration with leading chipset manufacturers, it has achieved peak data rates with commercial devices for LTE-Advanced (LTE-A) carrier aggregation.
