VNA Test Solution Addresses Emerging High-Frequency 5G and Satellite Applications

first_imgAt IMS 2019, Anritsu is showcasing its latest test solutions for emerging 5G, satellite and signal integrity applications while also highlighting its advanced vector network analyzer (VNA) technology. At their booth they are displaying solutions that meet the testing requirements to verify chipsets, components, and systems associated with today’s high-speed, high-frequency commercial and military applications.Products and Demonstrations at IMS 2019Anritsu is giving a demonstration featuring the VectorStar VNA. They are showcasing the VectorStar in the industry’s first broadband system that supports 70 kHz to 220 GHz in a single sweep. It is the first public showing of the solution, with the official launch of the VectorStar 220 GHz system slated for later in 2019.Anritsu is also introducing a 43.5 GHz frequency option for its 2 and 4-port ShockLine VNAs with guaranteed specifications using Anritsu’s new Extended-K type connectors and components. With the option, the ShockLine family is the first VNA to support specified 43.5 GHz functionality using a K-connector, creating distinct cost-of-test and time-to-market advantages in high-frequency applications.With the introduction of the Extended-K calibration kits and accessories, the option eliminates the need to use inconvenient adaptors or completely change to the more expensive and cumbersome 2.4 mm connector types. It provides design and manufacturing engineers with an efficient solution that adds the critical 3.5 GHz to a test environment for verification of products used in emerging 5G applications. Click here to view Anritsu’s VNA portfolio.Extended-K Brings Cost EfficiencyAt IMS, Anritsu is also unveiling its Extended-K connector family. The components achieve 43.5 GHz mode-free performance due to careful management of mechanical specifications, such as placement and tolerances of the support bead and pin depth, on the connector design. Mechanical airlines were used to characterize the various components to establish traceability through a national standards body to verify measurement credibility. While the Extended-K interconnect solutions were with the ShockLine family at IMS, the components are test instrument agnostic so they can be used in any VNA-based test environment.Click here to view a list of interesting workshops at IMS 2019.Follow everything RF’s live coverage of the IMS event.last_img read more

Is this the Final Ducati Panigale ever?

first_imgDucati has released a video teaser entitled “When the End Tells the Whole Story” shows what probably looks like the FInal Ducati Panigale evolution ever.There’s also the date of 7 July 2017 stated in the video which signifies the next WorldSBK round in Laguna Seca where most probably the final Panigale will be introduced.There move also coincides with further developments of their V4-powered superbike that has been planned to go into production as well compete in the WorldSBK in the beginning of the 2018 season. The end of the Ducati Panigale is getting closer and closer to reality with the giant Italian manufacturer getting ready to unveil one of their biggest paradigm shifts ever to the highly anticipated V4-powered superbike. While we’re not sure if this is true or not, Ducati has revealed a teaser video highlighting the Panigale with the tagline “When the End Tells the Whole Story”.Another important part of the video is that there will be an important event happening on 7 July 2017 where we think the era of Ducati’s V-twin superbikes will make way for the all-new V4 superbike and we’re not referring to the ultra-rare Ducati Desmosedici MotoGP converted to street bike.Ducati Desmosedici RRWhile most of us would think that the ultra crazy 1299 Panigale Superleggera was the final rendition of the Panigale, Ducati continues to throw us off our game but we’re guessing they want make a proper send off to their most successful superbike ever built. The tagline also signifies that this might very well be the last ever Panigale.Ducati 1299 Panigale SuperleggeraSo if the Panigale is one of Ducati’s most successful motorcycles ever built, why would they want to replace it? Well, the date stated in the video which is 7 July 2017 also marks the next WorldSBK round at the legendary Laguna Seca circuit where the race series will implement a huge change to the regulations probably in the next couple of years.Ducati 1199 Panigale R for the WorldSBK racing seriesAs the WorldSBK is clearly being dominated by Kawasaki with Ducati having access to just some crumbs of victories, Ducati needs to come up with something big to be able to be more competitive with their Japanese rivals. The rumour of Dorna wanting to regulate the displacements of all competing motorcycles also prompts the giant Italian to come up with the four-cylinder production bike.Ducati 1299 Panigale AnniversarioSince Ducati has the experience and capability to produce V4-powered motorcycles especially their MotoGP-derived race bikes, we’re pretty sure that Ducati fans and enthusiasts around the world will be looking forward to the production version. Our bet is that the unveiling will be done at the end of the year during the EICMA show in Milan.A V4-powered Ducati production motorcycle simply sounds…amazing. For now, just enjoy this amazing video of the bonkers 1299 Panigale Superleggera.–Ads–last_img read more

BT, Browns Town clash in Magnum Friday night feature

first_imgBoys’ Town and Browns Town’s top-of-the-table clash will highlight the Magnum KSAFA Super League double-header at Constant Spring Complex today beginning at 8:30 p.m. Both teams have seven points after winning two and drawing one match in their three contests.

Georgia rebuilding its offense around Chubb, veteran line

first_imgATHENS, Ga. (AP) — Georgia has to replace some important pieces from the highest-scoring offense in school history.Tuesday’s opening day of spring practice provided the reminder some key players return, including tailback Nick Chubb.Georgia lost quarterback Hutson Mason, tailback Todd Gurley, center David Andrews and its top two wide receivers, Michael Bennett and Chris Conley. The Bulldogs also lost longtime offensive coordinator Mike Bobo, now Colorado State’s coach.Brice Ramsey, Faton Bauta and Jacob Park began their competition to replace Mason at quarterback. The winner of the quarterback competition likely will do a lot of handing off to Chubb, who ran for more than 1,547 yards and 14 touchdowns as a freshman in 2014 as Gurley was lost to a suspension and knee injury.Chubb, starting his first spring practice, insists that rushing for more yards than any Georgia freshman except Herschel Walker doesn’t change the way he approaches his second season.”I don’t feel any pressure,” he said. “I know we have guys behind me. The team has got my back and I have four other great backs with me so there’s no pressure at all.”Junior Keith Marshall, who was slowed by injuries the past two seasons after rushing for 759 yards and eight touchdowns as a freshman in 2012, looked quick in Tuesday’s drills.”He’s back. Keith Marshall is back and I’m excited about that,” Chubb said. “I look forward to Keith having a great year.”Coach Mark Richt said Marshall “has no limitations whatsoever.”Sophomore Sony Michel and junior Brendan Douglas also return at tailback.Also returning are four starters on the offensive line, wide receiver Malcolm Mitchell and tight ends Jeb Blazevich and Jay Rome.Chubb spent spring break working with his former Cedartown (Georgia) High School teammates.”I’ve never had spring break and gone to the beach,” Chubb said. “In high school I always ran track, so it’s nothing new to me. … I’ve just done what I’ve always done, continue to work hard and stay focused. Don’t get side-tracked.”Gurley, who will be among the players who work out for scouts at Georgia’s pro day on Wednesday, watched Tuesday’s practice from the sideline.Chubb replaced Gurley on the field last season. Chubb said he and others now must replace Gurley’s leadership.”We’ve all got to step up as leaders on the team,” Chubb said. “I miss Todd. He’s a character and he keeps us laughing when we’re not practicing.”Georgia set school records with its 537 points and 41.3 points per game while posting a 10-3 record last season.Brian Schottenheimer, the former St. Louis Rams and New York Jets offensive coordinator, replaced Bobo and is bringing some new terminology in Georgia’s pro-style offense.”It’s different,” Richt said. “Obviously Mike has been here the whole time I’ve been here, 14 seasons. But I like the way the offensive staff is working. I like the way the offensive unit is responding. There’s enough difference where you’re not going at the same tempo you’re used to going at. That’s understandable.”___Follow Charles Odum on Twitter at http://www.twitter.com/CharlesOdumlast_img read more
