Spotlight On SATELLITE 2013
The 32nd annual SATELLITE Conference and Exhibition is an annual event dedicated to providing solutions to the satellite end user community. SATELLITE 2013 will be held March 18 to 21, 2013, at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C., and will bring together more than 12,000 satellite professionals representing more than 75 countries from the military/government, broadcast, enterprise, mobile, telecommunications, maritime and commercial markets to learn best practices, discover new technology, and collaborate with colleagues.

Many applications today require test equipment to be both high performance and high reliability. However, testing inside a thermal vacuum (TVAC) chamber may be one of the most extreme situations. Satellites require high-performance test solutions to ensure they meet their stringent specifications once in orbit. In order to ensure their performance in space, they are tested in TVAC chambers.
This broadband, high dynamic range RF down-converter features broadband operation (200 to 2500 MHz), a small form factor (7.0" x 4.0" x 1.35"), high intercept point, low phase noise, 70-MHz IF output, and more.
The T400CS Channel Simulator is a precision test instrument that models the physical effects of an RF communication link. Quickly inserted between modems, receivers and transmitters, or other equipment, the hardware-in-the-loop device creates exact nominal and worst-case RF signal conditions.
This two-day session will include introductory and intermediate training of Sonnet Lite, followed by Sonnet EM Accuracy and Benchmarking and High Frequency EM Model Extraction for RFIC and MMIC Design. Details.
