New Budget-Friendly RF Vector Signal Generator for IoT Applications

first_imgKeysight Technologies has unveiled a new high performance, low cost RF signal generator for engineers designing IoT and general-purpose devices. The new CXG X-Series RF Vector Signal Generator (CXG) operates from 9 kHz to 3/6 GHz with up to 120 MHz of RF modulation bandwidth covering most consumer wireless application testing requirements.IoT and general-purpose R&D and design validation (DVT) engineers need to keep up with today’s expanding consumer electronics market. They want an economic and versatile test and measurement system that can handle a diverse set of consumer electronic devices and deliver the performance required to generate receiver tests across different wireless standards.Keysight’s new CXG enables engineers designing IoT and general-purpose devices to:Accelerate the product development cycle,Gain greater confidence in design characterization with Keysight’s PathWave Signal Generation software, andMeet budget constraints without sacrificing the ability to test with quality signals.Key features provided by Keysight’s CXG signal generator include:Frequency range of 9 kHz – 3/6 GHz and up to 120 MHz RF modulation bandwidth that cover most of consumer wireless application testing requirementsBasic parametric testing of components and functional verification of receiversTesting of devices with multiple standards-compliant vector signals while reducing the time spent on signal creationTroubleshooting of components within a wireless communication system using a reliable vector signal generatorMinimizing downtime and expenses with self-maintenance solutions and low-cost repairsKeysight’s CXG X-Series RF Vector Signal Generator is available at a starting price of US $16,995.00.last_img read more

UPDATED: Dense Smoke Advisory Extended Till Friday Afternoon

first_imgSmoke from the Swan Lake fire will reduce visibilities to one quarter mile or less at times, according to the advisory. Original Post: 4:30am: The National Weather Service in Anchorage has issued a Dense Smoke Advisory, which is in effect until 1pm Thursday. The advisory includes Kenai, Soldotna, Homer, and surrounding communities. This advisory could impact travel along the Sterling Highway throughout the early morning hours into the afternoon. Be sure to check back for updates as they are made available. A dense smoke advisory means fires will create widespread smoke, limiting visibilities. If driving, slow down, use your headlights, and leave plenty of distance ahead of you in case a sudden stop is needed. Sean Baines with the National Weather Service: “The direction the smoke is moving has changed. We now have a wind that is moving from east to west. So, that will transport the smoke westward from the Swan Lake Fire towards Kenai, and Soldotna area. The fires down northeast of Homer will push smoke into Homer.”  Baines: “The densest  smoke will be from the Swan Lake Fire and that will impact the Sterling Highway corridor.”  FacebookTwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享Updated 11:13am: The National Weather Service in Anchorage has extended a Dense Smoke Advisory, which is in effect until 1pm Friday.
