The characteristics of transmit and receive modules for radio transmissions are determined primarily by the phase noise of the oscillators in use. The measurement of characteristics, in particular phase noise, is therefore just as essential for effective communications and broadcast systems as it is for special high-tech applications such as radar.
Agilent Technologies, leader in Test & Measurement solutions for the electronics and communications markets, is hosting a series of free half-day seminars focused on addressing the measurement challenges of current and emerging communications systems.
There is considerable interest in generating complex waveforms to test radar and communications systems. An arbitrary waveform generator (AWG) is one of the most flexible methods of signal simulation
The DITO Electrostatic Discharge test system from EM Test is designed to generate random electrostatic discharges, similar to those that occur between a human body and any other surface capable of a different voltage potential.
Trio Test & Measurement has released the Wonder Wave series of arbitrary waveform generators from Tabor. These combine the capabilities of digital conversion and control with the signal integrity of synthesised analog generators.
Scientech Technologies has introduced two oscilloscopes - Caddo 802 and Caddo 803. These microcontroller-based models provide freedom from mechanical switching and give the feel of smooth digital touch. Caddo 802 is a 20 MHz dual trace model while Caddo 803 gives 25 MHz two channel four trace.
