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.
ASSET announces support for ARM64 bit Architecture
20 February 2014 - At the upcoming Embedded World Exhibition and Conference from February 26-28 in Nuremberg, Germany, ASSET InterTech (Hall 4, Stand 4-100) will be announcing support for ARM64 bit architecture. Arium SourcePoint debugger from ASSET will support the ARM Cortex-A57 and Cortex - 53 processor architectures. The ARM Cortex- A57 is ARM’s highest performing processor, designed to further extend the capabilities of future mobile and enterprise computing applications including compute intensive 64-bit applications such as high-end computer, tablet and server products.
High Accuracy PCB Analyzer for PCB Manufacturing Test
19 February 2014 – Agilent Technologies introduced the E5063A PCB Analyzer for printed circuit board impedance test in manufacturing. The solution offers technology breakthroughs in accuracy and repeatability and reproducibility (R&R). The analyzer also provides a dedicated user interface with broader language support, and more robustness against electrostatic discharge for PCB manufacturing environments.
AR Europe expanded the European Sales Team
19 February 2014 - AR Europe has re-organised and expanded the European sales team. Tim Hague was appointed as the European Technical Sales Manager last year in order to support distributors and sales associates in systems based projects. In January Rob Hersom and Michel Sauvage both joined the AR UK and AR France sales teams as Technical Sales Engineers to serve the local customer base.
Aeroflex improves Phase Noise Performance of Signal Generators
18 February 2014 - Aeroflex has enhanced its S-Series signal generators (SGA and SGD) with improved phase noise and better RF level accuracy. At a carrier frequency of 1 GHz, phase noise is now improved by 6 dB at frequency offsets from 100 kHz to 1 MHz, giving a figure of typically -140 dBc/Hz between these offsets. The S-Series does this while maintaining its industry-leading frequency settling time of 100 µs.
