Rohde & Schwarz to Present 5G & Automotive T&M Solutions at electronica 2016

No Comments

first_imgThe electronica trade fair will be held from November 8 to 11, 2016, in Munich. At this event, Rohde & Schwarz will showcase test solutions for advanced technologies, including those for fifth-generation mobile radio (5G) and wireless gigabit, along with state-of-the-art test systems for embedded designs and automotive systems.Solutions for 5G and wireless gigabitRohde & Schwarz will present the first over-the-air (OTA) power measurement solution for 5G and wireless gigabit components. These wideband communications technologies require the use of phased array antennas at access points, base stations and in wireless devices. These antennas use beamforming to control the direction of radiation of the transmit antenna so as to maximize the power level at the receiver. The new R&S NRPM OTA power measurement solution from Rohde & Schwarz allows users in development and production to calibrate the transmit antenna’s output power and test its beamforming function using a simple test setup. The R&S NRPM operates in the frequency range from 27.5 GHz to 75 GHz. A compact 19″ EMC test box (R&S TS7124) additionally allows shielded RF measurements.In addition, Rohde & Schwarz assists developers around the world in evaluating their 5G implementations. The company’s 5G test setup at electronica will consist of an R&S SMW200A vector signal generator and an R&S FSW85 signal and spectrum analyzer. This combination offers the flexibility and T&M functionality required to test solutions for candidate waveforms and new frequency bands, for example. Using the R&S TS-5GCS channel sounding software, the two instruments can also characterize the new wireless channels in order to determine their optimal use.Automotive SolutionsUsers in the automotive sector will also benefit from the Rohde & Schwarz expertise in the field of radar testing. The R&S FSW85 signal and spectrum analyzer analyzes FMCW chirp signals up to 2 GHz bandwidth and covers the 24 GHz and 79 GHz frequency bands allocated to automotive radars with a single device, requiring no additional, external frequency converters. On display at the booth will also be the ARTS9510 automotive radar target simulator, the R&S TS7124 shielded RF test box and the R&S NRP8S power sensor, which provide an optimized measurement solution for production tests on automotive radar sensors.The company’s R&S CMW500 wideband radio communication tester offers car manufacturers a solution for performing RF and audio tests on infotainment systems, for example. The test platform is suitable for use in development, production and service and can be used to simulate Bluetooth, WLAN, LTE-A, WCDMA or GSM networks, for example. It can also test the effects of RF signals on communications modules located adjacent to each other.Testing Embedded DesignsMany highly integrated components are developed for Internet of Things (IoT) applications and are equipped with an air interface. The R&S CMW wideband radio communication tester und the R&S RT-ZVC04 probe can be used to test and monitor, for example, the data throughput and volume of LTE transmissions at these interfaces, and to measure and monitor the current drain of these components with high resolution. The R&S CMW290 is specifically designed for testing radio transmissions involving IoT components and supports diverse mobile radio and WLAN standards as well as Bluetooth.For measurements on highly integrated embedded designs, Rohde & Schwarz will present its R&S RTO2000 digital oscilloscope, which is designed for multi-domain applications. The oscilloscope allows developers to analyze the interaction between the various functional units of these complex designs. The R&S RTO2000 displays the correlations between time, frequency, protocol and logic analysis results like no other oscilloscope can.The R&S RTO2000 and R&S RTE digital oscilloscopes can now be used in combination with the new, extremely low-noise R&S RT-ZP1X probe to carry out power measurements down to the millivolt range. This functionality is essential for measuring power integrity on embedded designs as used, for example, in IoT applications. Power integrity can be quickly measured and analyzed down to the smallest detail using a Rohde & Schwarz oscilloscope and the new probe.Also on display is the R&S Scope Rider, the first handheld oscilloscope with the functionality and touch and feel of a state-of-the-art lab scope. Its rugged design makes it perfect for mobile installation and maintenance work. The instrument features isolated input and communications interfaces. It meets CAT IV standards and can carry out measurements on low-voltage installation sources up to 600 V.State-of-the-art EMI T&M solutionsThe R&S ESW EMI test receiver from Rohde & Schwarz is designed for applications in manufacturers’ EMI labs and in test houses. It can carry out fast prequalification tests, in particular certification tests, on modules, components, devices, systems and technical facilities in line with all relevant commercial and military standards. The instrument’s ultrafast FFT-based time domain scan delivers standard-compliant measurements in just seconds; these measurements can even be run with two CISPR detectors in parallel. The R&S ESW offers an exceptionally wide dynamic range and outstanding level accuracy. It can be used for EMI measurements starting from 2 Hz, such as those required in the A&D and automotive sectors.Signal Integrity Test SolutionsThe R&S ZNBT20 from Rohde & Schwarz is the first true multiport network analyzer to offer up to 16 integrated test ports for operation up to 20 GHz. The high number of test ports makes it possible to perform signal integrity tests for transmission standards with high data rates, for example simultaneous tests on multicore wiring systems. In combination with the R&S ZNBT-K20 option for extended time domain analysis, the R&S ZNBT can display eye diagrams, rise time and skew.Rohde & Schwarz will present its product portfolio at electronica 2016 in hall A1, booth 307.last_img read more

DOJ: Duterte must have basis in granting Pemberton’s pardon

first_imgAccording to the court, Pemberton had served a total of 2,142 days and earned 1,548 GCTAs. Taken together, this amounts to 3,690 days, or 10 years, one month, and 10 days./PN In an interview with ABS-CBN News Channel on Wednesday, Guevarra said Duterte can freely grant executive clemency even in the absence of an application from a sentenced person, as stated in the Philippine Constitution. “We have to presume that the President should have some basis in granting that executive clemency,” Guevarra said. “The President must also have some basis in his own mind, in his own judgment as to why he is deciding to grant pardon to anyone.” “As in the case of Mr. Pemberton, for example, he was aware about the issue surrounding his release so it’s not something like as if it’s so arbitrary, so whimsical, just out of the blue,” he added. MANILA – President Rodrigo Duterte must have had some basis for granting an absolute pardon to United States Marine Joseph Scott Pemberton, Justice secretary Menardo Guevarra said.center_img According to the 1987 Constitution, the President may grant reprieves, commutations and pardons, and remit fines and forfeitures after conviction by final judgment, except in cases of impeachment or as otherwise provided in the charter. Pemberton was sentenced to six to 10 years of imprisonment and had served over five years when an Olongapo judge ruled that he was entitled to be released given the GCTAs he supposedly earned on top of his actual time served. Pemberton was convicted of homicide over the death of Filipino transgender Jennifer Laude whose lifeless body was found in a motel room in Olongapo City on Oct. 11, 2014.last_img read more

The Indians’ Front Office is Getting Exactly What it Deserves

No Comments

first_img Related TopicsCleveland IndiansCorey KluberfeaturedFrancisco LindorJose RamirezMike Clevinger As the Cleveland Indians left Memorial Day weekend with a below .500 record, staring at a ten-game gap between themselves and the first place Minnesota Twins, two thoughts immediately came to mind.One, this season is officially a wreck. Two, this is exactly the kick in the pants this front office deserved.The struggle Cleveland has endured is a result of many things. Injuries, an ineffective lineup and a brutal slump for Jose Ramirez are all playing a factor in the miserable start to the year. However, nothing has had more of an impact on the awful performances we’re seeing than the front office’s hubris.It was this unearned sense of confidence which convinced ownership it could shed significant production over the winter, replace it with unknown youth and assume another AL Central crown was in the bag. The front office saw the talent in Indians’ rotation, along with the success seen from Ramirez and Francisco Lindor over the past few seasons, and just assumed that was all it needed to clinch another postseason berth.As we know, it’s not exactly panning out that way.By forcing five starting pitchers to operate under the slimmest margin of error, Cleveland was ill-prepared to handle injuries to Mike Clevinger and Corey Kluber. By assuming its star middle infielders could carry the load offensively, the Indians found themselves with no answers for slumps occurring at almost every other position in the lineup.These decisions were questionable back in December, and are even more so now. That said, it’s remarkably easy to see why the front office took an approach which turned a contending team into a toothless mess.Truth be told, there were reasons to be concerned at this time last year. The Indians spent the bulk of 2018 playing uninspired ball, never quite looking like a clear contender. While a few winning streaks would come along every now and then, the team spent majority of the year in cruise control.Of course, none of this matters if you have a sizable cushion atop the standings. The Indians may have looked underwhelming, but they never paid for it, as not one other AL Central team even remotely threatened to knock them out of first.It was this misreading of the 2018 season which convinced Cleveland’s front office it could still waltz to the postseason despite shedding salary over the winter. The Indians saw the gap they won the Central by last year as proof of their talent, not as a result of playing in a miserable division. If an expensive (by their terms) roster could win the Central by 13 games, clearly this team could be great even if it lost some pricey production.There were obvious holes in this line of thinking.It didn’t account for the strain the veterans on the roster would feel when having to overcompensate for lost production.It didn’t account for what could happen if the star-studded rotation dealt with an injury or two.It didn’t account for Minnesota, watching a division rival confidently sit on its hands, seeing this as a time to strike and improve its roster.So, while injuries and cold bats are behind Cleveland’s continued drop in the standings, this is only the case because the front office saw the 2018 season as a dominant success, and not a result of playing in one of the least competitive divisions in the history of the sport.Which brings me back to my initial point. The fact is the Indians needed a season like this.They needed to be shown pinning your postseason hopes not on your own team, but on the struggles of division rivals is a faulty plan.They needed to realize that you can’t shed significant production, replace it with next to nothing and expect to contend.They needed to have the flaws in their strategy exposed immediately.It may not make for a pleasant viewing experience for fans, but the hope is this will make the team better in the long run. The longer the front office misinterpreted the success it was seeing, the more it was going to steer into its ill-fated plan of cutting salary while in a window of contention.In a season as miserable as the one we’re watching, that’s about as much positive thinking as I can offer right now.

Big Budget Thriller Pulls Out of Alaska

No Comments

first_imgFacebookTwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享A victim of cost and convenience, Whittier will not be hosting the big-budget submarine thriller “Hunter Killer.” State Senator Bill Stoltze sponsored a bill to end Alaska’s film tax credits which passed the Senate yesterday. Daly said the film will use computer animation to create an Arctic landscape. Daly: “We’re hopign to hear from the Senators and the Legislators and the Representatives as to what the State of Alaska needs. Then, if SB 39 is not passed, we can amend the current program and give the State what they believe they need for a return on investment or a stream of income.” Daly: “Relativity Media likes to come in, do a project quietly and get it done, so they can get it into post-production and get it out there and they just found themselves in the spotlight and in the center of a battle and they didn’t like it. So between that and the insecurity that the State of Alaska injects into the industry with the unstable environment they’re providing, they chose to leave the state and they’re going to shoot that in Louisiana now.” Thomas Daly, President of the Alaska Film Group, said the film will take its $80 million and Hollywood stars Gerard Butler, Billy Bob Thornton, and Willem Dafoe to a quieter location… Senator Stoltze said his bill the end the program isn’t to blame for Hunter Killer’s withdrawal; he blames the Governor’s decision to defund the office which dealt with the credits. But Daly says he prefers the Governor’s approach, since there’s still hope for a future agreement so long as the program remains alive. The bill now goes to the House for consideration.last_img read more

PNGRFL boost for Kerowagi Coffee Cup

No Comments

first_imgRugby League BY JOHN PANGKATANA The pathway for rugby league in Kerowagi is open. Papua New Guinea Rugby Football League (PNGRFL) National Game Development Manager Toksy Nema this week reaffirmed the status of the Kerowagi district via the forthcoming Kerowagi Coffee Cup Challenge as the latest member of the PNGRFL family. For this, Nema acknowledged the foresight of the local MP Bari Palma and the Kerowagi District Holdings for taking the initiative to affiliate to the PNGRFL. “As the game is always capable of capturing the attention of the youth of today…you couldn’t have found a better vehicle to partner with in achieving your aspirations with this initiative. “This is a bonus for the Kerowagi people and something that all other MPs should consider as well. “For this I urge all MPs to be challenged by the Kerowagi leader and to follow suit in engaging the services that the PNGRFL provides.” He added that apart from the benefits which includes being eligible to participate in the National Highlands Confederate championships amongst other national programs, young people now have a popular choice to fall back on when society fails them. “Our job now is to lay the foundation and plant the seed so that rugby league can also touch those in rural PNG. “We can’t be everywhere, so in this case this initiative is commendable.” Through this arrangement, both Nema and PNGRFL referee’s director Aron Henry are now in Kerowagi to run a two-day coaching clinic. Kerowagi MP Bari Palma said the Coffee Cup Challenge has already picked up huge interest amongst the LLGs (Kup, Gena-Waugla and Kerowagi) following a week of awareness. Interest has come as far as Kumval on the Jiwaka/Simbu border, Neragaima on the Gumine border and in the Gena-Waugla LLG towards the Kundiawa-Gembogl border as well. “We anticipate a good turnout as interest has come from the four corners of the district and even over to the neighboring districts and even from Jiwaka itself after they heard that the PNGRFL would be engaged.” Palma said as his district prides itself on its coffee, of which the the concept is aimed at connecting something to the people that they can relate to. “Families are borne out of coffee, it’s a way of life, so in this way the farmers will take ownership.” Palma said they envisage to set up a strong foundation where it shall provide the basis for the abundance of raw hidden talent to be recognized. “If this program can provide the opportunity for our young people to channel their energy into something worthwhile as an indirect employment solution…then we are on the right track,” added Palma.last_img read more

I’m pretty sure worn out flags are supposed to be replaced, so having “an authentic distressed pattern which depicts a flag that has flown proudly over a long period of time” is not really a badge of honor, IMO. Plus, it’s going to suffer from the same problem that the crazy Maryland unis did… the players are going to look like they’re on different teams when they’re facing opposite directions. They should have alternated the striped parts with the star-spangled parts.
