Wireless Test Set enables Insights into LTE-Advanced Category 6 Chipsets
25 February 2014 – Agilent Technologies introduced the E7515A UXM wireless test set, a highly integrated signaling test set created for functional and RF design validation in the 4G era and beyond. The UXM provides a broad range of capabilities that enable testing of the newest wireless device designs, delivering LTE-Advanced category 6 now and handling increasingly complex test cases in the future.
USB Oscilloscope with eight high-resolution Channels
25 February 2014 - The new 8-channel PC oscilloscope PicoScope 4824 from Pico Technology features eight high-resolution channels with 12-bit resolution, SuperSpeed USB 3.0 interface, and an integrated 14-bit arbitrary waveform generator (AWG). Like all PicoScopes, the 4824 is small, light, and highly portable; despite its high specification it is entirely powered via USB and does not require a bulky separate adaptor.
Full bi-directional Cat 6 LTE-A Mobile Handset Test Capability
24 February 2014 - Aeroflex announced that the 7100 Digital Radio Test Set provides LTE-A carrier aggregation testing at full Cat 6 data rates of 300 Mbps downlink and 50 Mbps uplink simultaneously for LTE-A in FDD mode, and now also supports carrier aggregation in TDD mode. The Cat 6 capability is available via an upgrade to the standard 7100 software and the use of a RF combiner, allowing users to maximize the potential of their existing test equipment investment.
Programmable Multi-Channel GPIB Power Supplies
24 February 2014 - Keithley Instruments announced the addition of two multi-channel power supplies with GPIB interfaces to its line of programmable DC power supplies. The new models address the need for greater control and communication flexibility in both R&D and production test applications, which GPIB interfaces can provide. Both the Model 2220G-30-1 dual-channel and 2230G-30-1 triple-channel power supplies combine the advantage of greater output accuracy than offerings from the market leader at prices that are substantially lower.
Emission Measurements by a factor of 64 000 times faster
21 February 2014 - The series of ultra-fast and high performance EMI Receivers TDEMI eXtreme (TDEMI X) of GAUSS INSTRUMENTS provides due to a real-time bandwidth of 325 MHz in addition to the classical EMI Receiver mode a variety of measurement and analysis functions. Using leading edge FPGA technology the measurement time can be reduced by a factor of 64 000.
50/67 GHz USB Thermocouple Power Sensors
21 February 2014 – Agilent Technologies announced the addition of two new models to its U8480 Series USB thermocouple power sensors. The U8480 Series now comes with improved specifications, including an expanded frequency range to 67 GHz and a measurement speed of 900 readings/second, maintaining the U8480 Series’ status as the world’s fastest USB thermocouple power sensors.
Digital Predistortion simplifies Evaluation of Envelope Tracking Amplifiers
20 February 2014 - The new R&S SMW-K541 digital predistortion option from Rohde & Schwarz allows users to import predistortion coefficient tables directly into the R&S SMW200A. The signal generator uses these delta values to adjust the baseband signal in realtime. The option greatly reduces test times since predistorted waveforms no longer have to be tediously recalculated and imported into the generator.
