Remote-controlled analyser boasts high RF performance
An equivalent remote-controlled version of its SignalShark has been released by Narda Safety Test Solutions at an attractive price/performance ratio. This new Real-Time Remote Analyser detects and analyses, classifies and localises RF signals in the frequency range between 8kHz and 8GHz to the highest degree of precision and reliability.
Arbitrary generator offers high precision at affordable price
The TGF4000 series function/arbitrary generator from Aim-TTi has been added to Farnell element14’s linecard for same day despatch. The TGF 4000 series delivers high precision, wide bandwidth models and at the higher end of the series, the TGF4162 and TGF4242 offer extended frequency and level that may not have been affordable to customers previously.
5G testing in extreme temperatures to be demoed at MWC 2019
At Mobile World Congress in Barcelona (February 25-28), Rohde & Schwarz will showcase a setup that enables 3D RF measurements of antenna characteristics in a temperature range from –20 °C to +85 °C. Integrating the R&S ATS-TEMP climate option into an R&S ATS1000 antenna test system makes it possible to combine testing in an RF OTA chamber and climatic chamber testing into a single procedure, saving engineers measurement ...
Oscilloscopes enhanced with software option
Analysing the frequency response of a device, using Bode plots, is available now for selected Rohde & Schwarz oscilloscopes. With a new software option, users can analyse the response to frequency changes from 10Hz up to 25MHz without any additional piece of equipment and at a fraction of the price of dedicated solutions.
Power supplies target mobile, IoT applications
The R&S NGL200 power supply series introduced by Rohde & Schwarz specifically addresses users in the mobile communications and IoT sectors. The single-channel R&S NGL201 and the two-channel R&S NGL202 deliver up to 60W of output power per channel.
Touch-operated VNA offers enhanced RF performance
The R&S ZNA high-end vector network analyser, a powerful, universal test platform for characterising active and passive DUTs has been launched by Rohde & Schwarz. The two models R&S ZNA26 (10MHz to 26.5GHz) and R&S ZNA43 (10MHz to 43.5GHz) offer a dynamic range of 146dB (typ.) and a trace noise as low as 0.001dB at 1kHz IF bandwidth.
