Rohde & Schwarz: EMC test and measurement solutions at EMV 2018

first_img Continue Reading Previous Vector: simplified measurement and calibration of ECUs and ADAS sensors with CANape 16.0Next Axiomtek: Pico-ITX SBC with multiple I/O options and slim design Rohde & Schwarz will demonstrate its comprehensive range of EMC test and measurement solutions – from single devices to customer-specific, turnkey systems. The EMC expert will also present customized measurement software for precompliance and certification measurements as well as accessories such as broadband amplifiers, RF switching units and measurement antennas.For the new radio equipment directive (RED), the now mandatory certification guideline for radio equipment in Europe, the R&S TS8997 test system offers certification testing in line with ETSI EN 301 893 and EN 300 328 for wireless devices in the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz band as well as testing in line with FCC §15.247 and §15.407, including DFS tests. The R&S TS8997 test system supports DUTs with 8×8 MIMO. It meets or even succeeds the demanding measurement requirements of these test standards. Other test solutions on display include solutions for broadcast receivers in line with RED, for digital TV broadcast receivers in line with ETSI EN 303 340, for radio receivers in line with ETSI EN 303 345 and for indoor satellite broadcast receivers in line with ETSI EN 303 372-2.Thanks to their high measurement speed and comprehensive diagnostic tools, the R&S ESR and R&S ESW EMC test receivers are ideal for EMC certification in line with CISPR, EN, FCC and MIL as well as for automotive applications. External mixers were added to extend the frequency range of the R&S ESW for measurements in line with FCC and ETSI. The receiver now measures, for example, the harmonics of transmission equipment up to a receive frequency of 500 GHz.For developers who want to check EMC performance during development, Rohde & Schwarz has introduced the clear and easy-to-use R&S ELEKTRA test software. R&S ELEKTRA replaces the proven R&S ES-SCAN software and supports all of the company’s current EMC test receivers and spectrum analyzers. Rohde & Schwarz will also present an attractive solution for EMC debugging during development: the entry-level R&S FPC1000 spectrum analyzer, the R&S HM6050-2 line impedance stabilization network and the R&S HZ-17 near-field probe set together with R&S ELEKTRA.Different test scenarios are often required to validate a design or product. The broadband amplifiers in the new R&S BBA130 family from Rohde & Schwarz offer a one-box solution.Share this:TwitterFacebookLinkedInMoreRedditTumblrPinterestWhatsAppSkypePocketTelegram Tags: Tools & Software last_img read more

Finance Minister Says Government Will Continue to Protect the Poor

first_img Opening the 2018/19 Budget Debate in the House of Representatives on March 8, the Minister said social programmes for protected groups will continue to receive priority with respect to the allocation of resources, to ensure that overall spending in these areas is not eroded by inflation. Minister of Finance and the Public Service, Hon. Audley Shaw, says the Government remains committed to protecting the poor and vulnerable in the society. “We will continue, in fiscal year 2018/19, to strengthen the social safety net to ensure that these vulnerable persons are not left behind,” Mr. Shaw said. Story Highlights Minister of Finance and the Public Service, Hon. Audley Shaw, says the Government remains committed to protecting the poor and vulnerable in the society.Opening the 2018/19 Budget Debate in the House of Representatives on March 8, the Minister said social programmes for protected groups will continue to receive priority with respect to the allocation of resources, to ensure that overall spending in these areas is not eroded by inflation.Included are programmes for youth employment, poor relief, children’s homes and places of safety, school feeding, the elderly, and pregnant and lactating women.“We will continue, in fiscal year 2018/19, to strengthen the social safety net to ensure that these vulnerable persons are not left behind,” Mr. Shaw said.He noted that special attention is being placed on the Programme of Advancment Through Health and Education (PATH), which targets some of the most vulnerable segments of the population – children and students aged zero to 19 years; the adult poor, including the disabled, elderly, pregnant and lactating mothers and the destitute – and the Steps-to-Work Initiative, which targets working-age members of PATH for referral to relevant support services to enable them to seek and retain employment.Mr. Shaw said the programmes have the goal of breaking the chain of inter-generational poverty, adding that this is being achieved by ensuring that the next generation has better tools and better health prospects than their parents.“It also provides for support for those parents who need targeted social interventions to improve their living standards,” the Minister said.Mr. Shaw’s presentation was made under the theme ‘Stability, Growth and Prosperity – Our Goal, Our Responsibility’.last_img read more
