SierraNet M648 offers extensive and deep Ethernet protocol analysis, including InFusion traffic impairment tools for both NRZ and PAM4 signaling and is the only dedicated analysis tool in the market to offer complete test and network […]
A MEMS RF switch from Menlo Micro helps eliminate the decision of whether to design a semiconductor or mechanical switch into your circuits. When designing a switch into a circuit, you’ve probably been faced with a tradeoff. Semiconductor switches are fast and live long, but they have relatively high RON that can produce unacceptable losses.…
Part 2 continues the theme of power and efficiency in amplifiers, adding upload links, fixed access, and open RAN.
Just because 5G is rapidly rolling out doesn’t mean everything works and it’s time to move on. Indeed, the design challenges are just beginning, as this two-part series from IMS 2020’s 5G Summit shows.
The EM519x series of wireless modules from Sierra Wireless add 5G to embedded and IoT designs, with fallback to 4G and 3G.
Open radio-access networks promise to make 5G networks more flexible while fostering innovation, but with interoperable components comes the need for compliance and interoperability testing.
Granite River Labs (GRL) and KDPOF, supplier for gigabit transceivers over POF (Plastic Optical Fiber), announced that a specification for 1 Gb/s optical connectivity in vehicles has been adopted by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). “GRL is proud to support ISO-standardized Gigabit Ethernet POF (GEPOF) test services and automated test solutions,” said Vamshi Kandalla, […]
Spirent Communications plc announced the release of SimIQ, a new software that will allow for earlier and more efficient GNSS testing during product development. From software-in-the-loop through to final form testing, SimIQ enables developers to collaborate across the full design lifecycle through the creation, sharing and replay of I/Q data files. SimIQ has been developed to […]
The ShockLine ME7868A family of modular two-port vector network analyzers (VNAs) can conduct full vector S-parameter measurements over wide distances of up to 100 m. Consisting of two MS46131A one-port VNAs with the PhaseLync synchronization option hardware and accessories, the ME7868A VNA uses the MS46131As as portable VNA ports to directly connect to the device […]
