VectorStar features a completely new platform that utilizes
a new innovative architecture. It offers a new performance benchmark for
S-parameter measurements of RF, microwave and millimeter-wave devices, allowing
for the broadest frequency sweep from a single coaxial test port in a single
instrument, covering 70 kHz to 70 GHz.
For applications from 70 kHz to 2.5 GHz, a mixer-based receiver with
bridges for directional devices is used. Above 2.5GHz, a harmonic-sampling
receiver is incorporated, with the traditional couplers for directional
devices. Since the couplers are not taxed by extending to low frequencies,
available power is not traded for frequency coverage, resulting in superior
dynamic range. VectorStar now provides RF and microwave engineers a powerful
measurement tool for performance analysis of devices ranging from transistors
in an on-wafer environment to communication systems in commercial/defense
applications. Unlike other analyzers where speed compromises accuracy and trace
noise, the VectorStar's unique design architecture minimizes trace noise by
using a more coherent Source/LO pair. The result is ultra-low trace noise
without having to increase IF filtering, which slows the sweep speed. Speed is
not limited to just the display. Users can quickly download data to your
external database while moving on to the next device to maximize throughput. With a starting frequency as low as 70 kHz
and a stop frequency of 20, 40, 50 and 70 GHz, VectorStar provides the broadest
frequency coverage available. VectorStar
can also address the needs of the ultra broadband community with the capability
of spanning from 70 kHz to 110 GHz in a single coax connector.
On Memorial Day, Americans remember the sacrifices the US armed forces have made, and continue to make, in service to the country. All of us should also consider the developments in technological capabilities and equipment over the years that contribute to the success of our military operations.
In order to keep in line with safety protocols, industrial networks need to be filtered in a semantic way so that only information related to diagnostics is flowing back to the vendor and that any communications that could be used for remote machine operations are suppressed.
Advanced visualization can depict an entire plant in motion, while also detailing an individual workstation. Individual products can be rendered different for each discipline involved — marketing, engineering, or suppliers.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
