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.
Two different shape-shifting polymers have been announced from two different universities: Wyss Institute at Harvard University and Zhejiang University in eastern China. Both of them change their shapes when immersed in water, and the one from Wyss Institute was made with 3D-printing techniques.
When you think of the DARPA Robotics Challenge, you may imagine complex humanoid contraptions made of metal and wires that move like a Terminator Series T-90. But what actually happened at the much-vaunted event was something just a bit different.
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.
