Test Instruments Aid RF Designers

To give a leg up to RF engineers throughout the design, development, and manufacturing processes, the company has unveiled three new test instruments. First up to bat is the 200-MHz Model 2910 RF vector signal generator with a software-defined radio architecture, patent-pending synthesizer technology, and unique power leveling techniques. The unit specifies a settling time of 1.5 ms and the sync-out source-settled indicator is set only when the source is settled. It also includes a 40-Mhz, 64-Msample arbitrary waveform generator that supports simultaneous loading of multiple waveforms. Switching time between these signals is less than 5 ms. Additionally, the instrument supports popular cellular formats including GSM, GPRS, EDGE, W-CDMA, cdmaOne, and cdma2000. Available later this year, the Model 2810 vector signal analyzer and the Model 3500 portable RF power meter are designed to complement the Model 2910. Price for the Model 2910 starts at $14,500.
