Spotlight On Software Solutions
Keeping Pace With A Standardized Development Process
Article | Cadence Design Systems, Inc.

Early standardizations were focused on the hardware abstraction, but modern technology relies mostly on the software. Test organizations must move now move to standardized methods of iterative software development to remain competitive in the market.

Understanding AR’s emcware
Application Note | AR

AR’s emcware is a user-friendly, comprehensive electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) test software package that includes automation routines for radiated immunity (RI), conducted immunity (CI), radiated emissions (RE), and conducted emissions (CE).

Automated Frequency Response Measurement With AFG31000, MDO3000, And TekBench Instrument Control Software
Application Note | Tektronix

This application note describes how to use TekBench software and a Tektronix AFG31000 series arbitrary function generator and MDO3000 oscilloscope to perform the automated frequency response measurement effortlessly with just a few steps.

Anticipating The Next Revolution In Engineering Simulation
White Paper | ANSYS, Inc.

A new era of simulation “democratization” requires a new generation of software — one that allows companies to apply simulation with more flexibility, improves development process accuracy, enables multiple physics to be studied simultaneously, and increases collaboration and best-practice adoption.

Brochure | CST of America, Inc.

GPU computing can provide significant simulation speed advantages over conventional CPU computing. CST STUDIO SUITE supports GPU computing in the transient solver integral equation solver and particle-in-cell (PIC) solver, using NVIDIA Tesla® GPU cards.

To Block Or Not To Block?
White Paper | By Jeffrey Gibala, Corry Micronics, Inc.

RF switch matrices eliminate the need to manually move connections by routing signals, via user control, from their input ports to their output ports, providing convenience and speed. The first step is to select the type of switch matrix: blocking, non-blocking, or super non-blocking.

Vision Software MX280001A
Brochure | Anritsu Company

The Vision software platform works with Anritsu's spectrum monitoring hardware to automate the process of collecting measurement data and provide useful information about the network health and use of the spectrum. 

How To Measure All Types Of Antennas Using Very-Near-Field Measurement
White Paper | By Ruska Patton and Ning Yang, EMScan

In order to help avoid sending antennas that fail to meet specified design criteria, regulatory requirements, or consumer satisfaction to the marketplace, designers need to characterize the antenna to meet all of the performance criteria. 

Tunable MEMS Capacitor For RF Applications
White Paper | By H. S. Shriram, et al., COMSOL, Inc.

Tunable MEMS capacitors are micro-meter-scale electronic devices controlled through different actuation mechanisms. This paper proposes a design for an electro-thermally actuated tunable MEMS capacitor suitable for filters, oscillators, phase shifters, and impedance matching networks.

  Military Space Situational Awareness 2020

April 29 and 30, 2020 | London, United Kingdom

As the next generation of mega constellations are sent into orbit, understanding where satellites are and how they are interacting with other platforms is more critical than ever — as collisions can damage equipment valued into the billions and cripple vital communication and earth observation capabilities.
