Agilent's one-box test set measures both WLAN 802.11a/b/g and Bluetooth modules from a single platform. The N4010A wireless connectivity test set with WLAN option 102/103 combines a fully calibrated vector signal generator and wide bandwidth signal analyser into a single test set, maximising manufacturers' flexibility and eliminating the need to purchase separate WLAN and Bluetooth measurement systems.
Wenzel Associates has released low jitter phase noise sources featuring Blue Tops technology for operating and testing new components and systems. Such applications include radar local oscillators, communications systems, phase noise measurement systems and low jitter clocks for testing data converters and other high performance semiconductors. These systems often require a source that provides several frequencies at a time with virtually no spurious content and high quality phase noise.
The growing demand for radiocommunications calls for higher frequencies since all lower-range frequencies have already been allocated worldwide
Anritsu has introduced the MD8470A signalling tester, designed to enable the wireless communications industry to rapidly develop and deploy new services and applications onto next-generation mobile phones. The tester provides a complete 'network simulator on the desk' allowing developers to test new features, services and applications on real handsets in a live environment with the convenience of a desktop test unit.
The Atlas LCR passive component analyser from Peak simplifies the testing of passive components.Traditional LCR bridges are inherently complex and very time consuming to use. This analyser does everything automatically, it tells the user the component type in addition to component value data. What's more, it automatically selects the best signal level and frequency for the particular component under test.
Vicom has expanded the functionality for the 2975 Radio Test Set for Project 25 (P25) testing from IFR, a designer of advanced test solutions that include wireless radio test sets, signal sources, avionics and frequency agile test, microwave test, signal analysers and ATE (automated test equipment).
BMP The Tescom TC-3000A Bluetooth tester eliminates the need for several testers by combining key RF and Protocol test and measurement functions in one box. Designed for a wide range of applications in R&D, manufacturing, QA and service, this powerful instrument is lightweight and portable, and may be operated with all standard AC voltages. In addition to Bluetooth testing applications, it may be used for non-Bluetooth RF testing along the 2.4 GHz ISM band.
