Software release cuts 4.5G test time by 33%

NI-RFmx 2.2, the latest version of NI’s advanced measurement software for PXI RF test systems was unveiled today (February 27) at Mobile World Congress. 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.

PXIe instruments advance research in 5G

PXIe instruments advance research in 5G
Ten new PXIe instruments, including a new arbitrary waveform generator that includes three highly synchronised channels for precise tuning of IQ waveforms and envelope tracking, as well as the industry’s first full-featured PXI oscilloscope have been introduced by Keysight Technologies. The AWG and oscilloscopes provide up to 1GHz bandwidth to support complex baseband IQ signal generation and analysis for evaluating emerging 5G and aerospace & defence wideband technologies.

Power analyser accuracy can save thousands of euros

Power analyser accuracy can save thousands of euros
The WT3000E Transformer Version is a newly-introduced precision power analyser developed by Yokogawa. It is dedicated to testing the power transformers used in the power utilities’ transmission and distribution sectors. With an accuracy of 0.5% at power factors as low as 0.01 at 100 V and 1 A, the WT3000E Transformer Version is ideally suited to the precision testing of transformer losses, allowing transformer manufacturers to avoid potential fines imposed by power authorities that could run into thousands of euros.

Understanding noise figure in RF systems

Understanding noise figure in RF systems
Modern receiving systems, be they satellite TV set-top boxes or mobile phones in low coverage areas, are increasingly required to capture and process very weak signals. The challenge for these systems is to do so despite the noise the signals pick up in the atmosphere, and from the receivers’ own electronics. Giovanni D’Amore, Marketing Brand Manager, Keysight Technologies explains.
