EE-Evaluation Engineering’s weekly RF/Microwave Update debuts today

Jan. 4, 2017

Today marks the debut of EE-Evaluation Engineering’s weekly RF/Microwave Update. It will arrive in your inbox every Wednesday bringing news on components, subassemblies, systems, software, and technologies as well as industry happenings.

Of particular note this week is Narrow Band IoT (NB-IoT), the low-power cellular air interface aimed at machine communications. Rohde & Schwarz has reported test system deployment at China Mobile Communications Corp. and Huawei. This news follows an earlier announcement that Keysight Technologies and CommSolid had demonstrated the successful completion of an NB-IoT connection with the Keysight E7515A UXM base-station emulator and wireless test.

Other topics this week extend from new waveguide attenuators from Pasternack, whose parent company announced a new acquisition, to a 40-GHz EMC test system.

National Instruments, for example, addressed automotive applications at European Microwave Week. The company demonstrated a new ADAS test solution designed for short- and long-range radar and based on NI’s mmWave front-end technology and the recently released PXIe-5840 second-generation vector signal transceiver (VST).
