The Advantest U3700 Series with NEW option 010 is the first two-channel
RF/microwave spectrum analyzer up to 43GHz (Ka Band) with two independent RF
inputs in the world. At 14 lb with an
optional battery, it is lightweight, portable and ideal for field use. Its all-digital architecture contributes to
its affordable price (starting at $14,140) and lower maintenance cost and
compact form factor. It offers time
domain measurement capability to capture spectrum as power, frequency, phase,
and I/Q as a function of time. LAN, USB and GPIB connectivity are standard
features. The Advantest U3700 Series with new option 10 is like having two
spectrum analyzers in one instrument. It
increases productivity and functionality, reducing measuring time in half.
Microwave Engineers can measure and display RF (Ka Band) and IF signals
simultaneously and independently making it easier to troubleshoot the
signal. It also allows you to compare a
Golden Signal and DUT output simultaneously.
For engineers that need to tune antennas, they can now look at both the
horizontal and vertical polarization at the same time. Any application that requires two signal
inputs will benefit with time and cost savings. The company says the Advantest
U3700 Series with NEW option 10 is the only portable (14 lb or less) and
battery operated spectrum analyzer that sweeps up to 43GHz covering the Ka Band
in the market. This is possible due to
its innovative all-digital architecture which allows a compact form factor and
low power consumption without compromising high RF performance. In addition, option 10 provides two
simultaneous input channels, a feature the company says no spectrum analyzer in
any class can offer.
Engineers at Fuel Cell Energy have found a way to take advantage of a side reaction, unique to their carbonate fuel cell that has nothing to do with energy production, as a potential, cost-effective solution to capturing carbon from fossil fuel power plants.
To get to a trillion sensors in the IoT that we all look forward to, there are many challenges to commercialization that still remain, including interoperability, the lack of standards, and the issue of security, to name a few.
This is part one of an article discussing the University of Washington’s nationally ranked FSAE electric car (eCar) and combustible car (cCar). Stay tuned for part two, tomorrow, which will discuss the four unique PCBs used in both the eCar and cCars.
