Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) introduced a multi-channel antenna calibration Reference Solution for calibrating and characterizing large, multi-channel phased-array antennas during integration and manufacturing. This is the second in a series of modular-based Reference Solutions, a new concept introduced by Agilent earlier this year, consisting of essential test system components, including hardware, software and measurement expertise.
With the addition of the new R&S®SGU100A RF upconverter, Rohde & Schwarz expands its tried and tested R&S®SGS100A vector signal generator to cover microwave applications. The combination of the two instruments yields the most compact vector signal source on the market with up to 20 GHz. The R&S®SGU100A is available as a pure CW upconverter or as an upconverter for I/Q-modulated signals.
FSMLabs and Spectracom announces a new partnership to address the most complex synchronization challenges for time-sensitive network operations. As the first step, Spectracom has announced a 10 gigabit-per-second high-accuracy network clock that integrates FSMLabs software with its GPS timing technology and high speed network interfaces. This combination sets a new standard for network performance and dependability in critical enterprise network applications.
Tektronix, Inc., the world's leading manufacturer of oscilloscopes, announced that a new Method of Implementation (MOI) leveraging a fully automated compliance test and debug solution for the recently released HDMI 2.0 specification has been approved by the HDMI forum as the official compliance solution. The Tektronix solution provides comprehensive coverage of the required HDMI 2.0 transmitter and receiver electrical PHY tests to ensure consistent interoperability between suppliers in this fast-growing industry.
Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) and Cerno Bioscience announced that Agilent will distribute Cerno Bioscience's MassWorks calibration and analysis software with all Agilent GC/MSD systems. This novel calibration technology increases the mass accuracy of Agilent's single-quadrupole GC/MSD to enable unknown compound identification. This process normally requires more complex instruments, such as time-of-flight (TOF) mass spectrometers.
Manufacturers of consumer and professional electronics as well as cable network operators can now generate signals in line with the new transmission standard. Simulating a cable TV network with full channel loading, the R&S®CLGD DOCSIS cable load generator from Rohde & Schwarz implements digital and analog channels even in realtime and allows users to simulate any conceivable channel loading scenario.
Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) announced the availability of inverted light microscope (ILM) and scanning tunneling microscope (STM) capabilities for the recently introduced Agilent 7500 atomic force microscope platform.
