Machine-to-machine communications (M2M) and the Internet of Things (IoT) are leading the way into an increasingly networked world. The R&S CMW290 functional radio communication tester from Rohde & Schwarz is the right solution for users who want to integrate wireless modules into their platforms and test them.
Keysight Technologies, Inc. announced two new series of handheld digital multimeters (DMMs). In addition to offering the capabilities and measurement functions needed for the electronics and industrial test segments, the U1280 Series and U1240C Series handheld DMMs are extremely rugged and come with extended battery life to allow users to test and log data over a longer period of time.
Texas Instruments (TI) introduced a low-power smart amplifier that allows designers to develop next-generation smartphones with industry-leading audio quality at peak volumes while maximizing battery efficiency. The TAS2555 Class-H audio amplifier with integrated speaker protection uses back electromotive force and low power of 5.7 W to produce bigger sound from small devices. TI is the first in the industry to provide both integrated and nonintegrated smart amplifiers, giving engineers a broad range of design options.
The new R&S TS7124 RF shielded box from Rohde & Schwarz offers the best shielding effectiveness, the largest interior dimensions and the most flexible antenna configurations in its class. It provides reliable, reproducible measurement results in a shielded test environment, especially during the production of wireless devices.
Anritsu Company expands its Electromagnetic Field (EMF) Measurement System with the introduction of isotropic antennas that provide frequency coverage from 9 kHz to 6 GHz. Compatible with certain LMR Master™, Spectrum Master™, and Cell Master™ handheld analyzers, the new antennas support measurements of EMF radiation to ensure wireless networks are in compliance with various national standards for personal safety established by government regulatory authorities.
NI and Astronics Test Systems, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Astronics Corporation announced their collaborative efforts to deliver PXI-based products designed for the aerospace and defense community. The combination of Astronics’ strength in test system integration and NI’s leadership in PXI-based automated test systems is expected to produce a best-in-class portfolio for automated test equipment (ATE) applications.
Keysight Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: KEYS) introduced an enhanced signal processing configuration for its M9703B 12-bit AXIe high-speed digitizer/wideband digital receiver. System architects and engineers can use this new bundle option, which is ideal for OEM and aerospace & defense applications, as a component of a larger system requiring extensive FPGA capabilities and a high number of customizable real-time IO interfaces.
From high end instruments to universal testers, Rohde & Schwarz is bringing its entire line of test and measurement equipment for lab, R&D and production needs to productronica 2015. At booth 375 in hall A1, the company will showcase its ever growing oscilloscope portfolio as well as a number of innovative products.
Anritsu Company announces that it has extended the frequency coverage of its MS46322A Series ShockLine™ Economy Vector Network Analyzers (VNAs) and MS46122A Series ShockLine Compact VNAs to 43.5 GHz. By supporting the higher frequency, the low-cost VNAs can efficiently conduct S-parameter and time domain measurements on RF and microwave passive devices up to 43.5 GHz in a variety of cost-sensitive engineering, manufacturing and university testing applications.
