LTE (long term evolution) is quickly becoming the single global standard for cellular communications. As such, telecommunication vendors and operators are working hard to accelerate the availability of commercial and interoperable LTE networks and devices through a global collaboration called the LTE/SAE Trial Initiative (LSTI). Consumer demand for mobile devices continues to rise for devices with both voice and extensive data capabilities. As these new devices are designed and manufactured, the demand and complexity for LTE testing will increase significantly.
As cell phones advance and demands on cell phone batteries increase, engineers are constantly looking to reduce the power consumption of new technology. Specifically, engineers are seeking to reduce the power consumption of the RF power amplifier (PA). One way to optimize the power-added efficiency (PAE) of the PA is through envelope tracking.
You want top-tier technology, but not top-tier pricing. You’re look for a deal, but you’re also looking for reliability. With these two thoughts repeating in your mind, you debate whether or not you should buy aged test equipment.
Fine-tuned test equipment provides the most accurate test results in cases of default product modes or specific requirements for a customer. Even with industry leading test equipment why are regular calibrations essential?
People expect their technology to do more and more. This, in turn, makes the electrical components of new products even more complex requiring extensive testing and troubleshooting. Newly released products must now pass tighter testing regulations, be available to the public more quickly, and exhibit top quality.
The MDO4000 series offers several models, each with different bandwidth options of up to 1GHz and 16 digital channels based on your necessity. The MDO4000B series offers juiced-up technical capabilities of a full 21 digital channels and 3GHz for those that need the extra power.
Tektronix has just announced the release of the MDO3000. Going back to the stone analogy, this oscilloscope is unique in the fact that it combines six usually separate machines into just one. The MDO3000 features Tektronix’s already famous oscilloscope as the base with a built in spectrum analyzer.
