The new test options for the R&S RTO2000 series oscilloscopes with a bandwidth of 6 GHz make these instruments ideal for testing fast communications interfaces. The new options support the 5 Gbit/s SuperSpeed USB and PCI Express (PCIe) 2.0 interfaces. There is also a new solution for USB power delivery (USB-PD).
Keysight Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: KEYS) announced their plan to help accelerate the deployment of Internet of Things (IoT) technologies. IoT capabilities is expected to help connect billions of devices with applications—such as smart homes, connected cars, healthcare and smart cities; as well as industrial applications, including energy systems, agriculture and transportation.
NI (Nasdaq: NATI), the provider of platform-based systems that enable engineers and scientists to solve the world’s greatest engineering challenges, announced NI-RFmx 2.2, the latest version of its advanced measurement software for PXI RF test systems. When used with the second-generation PXI Vector Signal Transceiver (VST), engineers can test 4.5G and 5G RF components such as transceivers and amplifiers using a wide range of carrier aggregation schemes, even as the 5G standard is still being defined.
Tektronix, Inc., a leading worldwide provider of measurement solutions, introduced the industry's first 32 Gb/s protocol-aware bit error rate test and analysis system. The new Tektronix BSX series BERTScope not only helps characterize the receiver in Gen3 and Gen4 devices – it enables users to shorten the time needed to debug link training and bit error rate issues.
The new R&S RT-ZVC multichannel power probe, in combination with an R&S CMW radio communication tester, monitors the power consumption of chipsets, radio modules and mobile devices. It is the only solution available on the market that can correlate battery consumption data with RF signaling events. And it accomplishes this with a measurement resolution of 18 bits, making measurements in the nanoampere range possible.
Keysight Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: KEYS) announced the InfiniiVision 1000 X-Series oscilloscopes. This new low-cost oscilloscope series has 50 to 100 MHz models that feature unique, Keysight-custom technology. The oscilloscopes deliver professional-level functionality with industry-leading software analysis and 6-in-1 instrument integration.
NI (Nasdaq: NATI), the provider of platform-based systems that enable engineers and scientists to solve the world’s greatest engineering challenges, announced the availability of the USRP-2945 quad receiver SDR device and the USRP-2944 high-performance 2x2 multiple input, multiple output (MIMO) SDR device.
The R&S CMW500 wideband radio communication tester now emulates WLAN networks in line with the IEEE 802.11ac standard. The established test platform thus supports all current cellular and non-cellular wireless standards. Just a single test instrument covers all tests required for components with multiple integrated wireless interfaces – including interoperability tests.
Keysight Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: KEYS) announced that it is collaborating with ZTE to assist them in the test and measurement of critical 5G key technologies, including mmW communications, New PHY, massive MIMO and BTS beamforming prototypes. Keysight will help ZTE accelerate 5G product time to market by providing industry-leading products and solutions, for example, UXA mmW signal analyzes, AXIe modular ultra-broad bandwidth signal generation and analysis systems, and system level prototype solutions.
