Anritsu Unveils its First 1-Port Modular Vector Network Analyzer Family

first_imgAnritsu has announced the release of its first modular 1-port VNA that supports measurement frequencies up to 43.5 GHz. The ShockLine MS46131A is a USB controlled vector network analyzer (VNA) that brings cost and efficiency advantages to measuring antennas and other 1-port 5G devices at sub-6 GHz, as well as in the 28 GHz and 39 GHz millimeter wave (mmWave) bands. It is available in 3 frequency configurations – 8 GHz, 20 GHz and 43.5 GHz. Very lightweight and compact, the VNA can be directly connected to the device under test (DUT), eliminating the need for interconnect cables. The result is reduced test costs and improved measurement stability. The MS46131A is a modular VNA that can be configured for each user session on a port-by-port basis. A single PC can control up to two 1-port instruments for convenient dual site testing. Units can be easily moved between test setups, depending on the required port count. Production uptime is also enhanced, as 1-port VNAs can be easily replaced, if needed, to keep test stations operational.Beyond the USB connection to the external control PC running ShockLine software, the MS46131A also requires a 12V power supply. An advantage of the external PC is that it makes test data more secure, as all the measurement results are stored on the PC, rather than the VNA. The MS46131A is well suited for confidential testing environments due to this level of security. Analysis and documentation are also simplified, as there is no need to transfer data off the onboard instrument memory.Click here to view Anritsu’s complete VNA portfolio on everything RF.last_img read more

Pack Wisely to Avoid Spring Break Delays

first_imgFacebookTwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享The Spring Break travel season is getting underway, with the break starting next Monday, March 14, on the Kenai Peninsula. The TSA is reminding flyers what they can’t bring through security. ABC’s Ryan Burrow reports… Burrow: “At Memphis International Airport, TSA officials showed off items they’ve confiscated in just the last month, including toy guns, brass knuckles, tools, a machete, even nunchucks. The agency is warning travelers they won’t be able to get through security with those items. If they try, they’ll either have to return them to their vehicles, or leave them at security. The TSA hopes the warning will help alleviate long lines as Spring Breakers ramp up travel. Ryan Burrow, ABC News.”last_img

The Head Ball Coach is ready to make the calls again

first_imgCOLUMBIA – Probably Steve Spurrier’s best attribute as a football coach is his ability to dissect opposing defenses with his shrewd play-calling.After abdicating some of that play-calling responsibility during the University of South Carolina’s 2014 football season, Spurrier is ready to get back into the game.“I plan to be the play-caller again,” Spurrier said after practice Tuesday. “I did delegate at times last year, but I usually took over before the game was over. But I certainly plan on doing it, and I’ll be ready to do it, and go from there.”Spurrier said when he handed off the duties last season, it was mainly because of his frustration when things weren’t going so well.“You make a bad call and you say, ‘Aw … why did I do that? Maybe somebody else can do it better,’ ” Spurrier said. “And then you realize it’s not necessarily the play call, it’s just what happens.”Spurrier said he would remain open to suggestions from his offensive staff but would stay true to his beliefs.“I’ve done that since I’ve been here, take suggestions here and there, especially on the run game, at times,” Spurrier said. “But not always. Not always. I listen to them, but I don’t always go with the suggestions, which is expected.”Spurrier understands USC has a long way to go•There has been a lot of buzz about Greenwood native Marquavius Lewis taking over at one of the defensive end spots.Co-defensive coordinator Lorenzo Ward took a wait-and-see approach about the junior college transfer, however, when asked if Lewis could end the 2015 season with more than 10 sacks after the Gamecocks finished 2014 with a combined 14.“It’s not that easy,” Ward said. “(Jadeveon) Clowney, I think had 13 when he was here, and he’s a great player. Quay’s going to be a great player, too, but we’ve got a long way to go to be talking about (double-digit) sacks.”•Defensive line coach Deke Adams said the priority during the offseason has been getting the defensive linemen in better shape than in 2014, as well as improving players’ technique.Having Ward coaching the defensive linemen has been a plus, Adams said.“First, off he’s a great coach,” Adams said of Ward. “It’s also been good because we can split the ends and the tackles, give them more attention.“They’ve been working hard. There are times I’ve been working out and they come in to get in extra cardio, or whatever in. I’ve been happy with their work ethic.”•Spurrier says there is a possibility someone other than wide receiver Pharoh Cooper could become the wildcat quarterback next seasonHe said incoming freshman quarterback Lorenzo Nunez is a possibility, along with reserve quarterback Brendan Nosovitch.MORE FROM GREENVILLEONLINE: Connor Mitch fighting to take over as QB for Gamecocks USC embracing new defensive strategylast_img read more
