Rohde & Schwarz announced their new R&S ESR EMI test receiver. The instrument measures conducted and radiated disturbances with a frequency range of 10 Hz to 7 GHz. It is compliant with the CISPR 16-1-1 standard. The R&S ESR test receiver can take EMI measurements up to 6000 times faster than other solutions. The R&S ESR makes it easy to perform acceptance testing (conducted or radiated) in line with EN/CISPR/FCC on modules, assemblies, household appliances, IT equipment, TVs, and radios. It is also ideal for acceptance testing of mobile applications, and vehicles and accessories.
Rohde & Schwarz announced the new high-end R&S FSW signal and spectrum analyzer. With the R&S FSW, engineers can view multiple measurement applications and analyze signal interactions. The R&S FSW signal and spectrum analyzer is available in three models with frequency ranges of 2 Hz to 8 GHz, 13 GHz or 26.5 GHz. The signal and spectrum analyzer is ideal for development laboratories in the aerospace, defense and communications industries.
AWR and Rohde & Schwarz will host a webinar about low noise amplifier (LNA). The webcast is titled, LNA Design and Characterization Using Modern RF/Microwave Software and Test & Measurement Instruments. The online seminar will feature live video segments demonstrating the use of test instruments performing measurements on a prototype low noise amplifier (LNA). Microwave Office will be used to demonstrate useful practices in the virtual prototyping stage. An actual LNA will be measured using a ZVA (Rohde & Schwarz’s Vector Network Analyzer). The event will take place Tuesday, March 8, 2011 at 9 am PST.
