Anritsu Adds Noise Floor Reduction and Step Attenuator Options in Signal Analyzers

first_imgAnritsu has introduced the MS2840A-051 Noise Floor Reduction and MS2840A-019 2 dB Step Attenuator for Millimeter-wave options for the Signal Analyzer MS2840A series. These latest releases are ideal for accurate measurements aimed at improving the performance of wireless equipment and signal sources, as well as for improving phase noise, which is the key to upgrading the measurement resolution of microwave and mm-Wave radar and sensors.With the demand for high-quality graphics and video in applications such as mobile and satellite communications/broadcasting, achieving faster radio communications is reliant on using wider bandwidth radio signals, with a trend towards using microwave and mmWave bands which offer much wider frequency spectrum options. Ensuring wideband and low error rate radio signals in the microwave and mmWave bands requires the use of transmitters with high dynamic range performance, bringing with it the need for high-dynamic range measuring instruments to optimise designs, in particular, those associated with noise interference.The Noise Floor Reduction (NFR) option subtracts up to 11 dB from the measured internal noise level of the measurement system, to lower the displayed noise floor and support more accurate measurement of very low-level signals than has been possible previously. In addition, the new 2 dB Step Attenuator option can set a 0 to 60 dB attenuator with 2 dB steps across the entire frequency range for 44.5 GHz model, versus a standard specification of 0 to 60 dB attenuation in 10 dB steps. This option improves the measurement dynamic range by optimizing the mixer input level even at high frequencies.These latest options are especially useful for measuring wideband signals and microwave and mmWave signals requiring measurement of spectrum emissions, adjacent channel leakage power, and high-dynamic range signals at Tx ON and OFF.The MS2840A Signal Analyzer is a signal and spectrum analyzer with excellent close-in phase noise performance. It is available in four models with different maximum measurement frequencies of 3.6, 6, 26.5, and 44.5 GHz. The 26.5 and 44.5 GHz models can be expanded to cover a measurement frequency range up to 325 GHz by connecting an external mixer. Due to its high performance, the MS2840A is used widely for development and manufacturing of narrowband radio equipment, radio oscillator modules, wireless backhaul, satellite communications, radar, etc.last_img read more

“Real” scores two goals in the first 16 minutes and is…

first_imgIt took Real Madrid just ten minutes to take the lead. The initiative was taken by the defender Ferlāns Mendī, who arranged the position of the shot himself and hit from the narrow angle under the crossbar, scoring his first goal in the team ranks. Just six minutes later, his compatriot Karim Benzema reached 2-0, who is one of the best snipers in the history of “Real”.Benzem, who has been in great shape since the start of the season, just like the whole Real team – no points were lost in the rest of the season, turning a two-point deficit against Barcelona into a four-point lead – was a precise counterattack. The attacker entered the penalty area, made a right move and made an excellent shot in the far corner that could not be caught by the goalkeeper.In the second half, Granada regained one goal, with Darwin Machis hitting Tibo Kurtu’s leg, but Real saved 2: 1. It was Real’s first goal in the last six matches. The owners of the field continued to have dangerous opportunities, so the three points should not be called easy. This was also proved by the cheer of head coach Zinedin Zidana, waiting for the final whistle.There are two rounds left until the end of the Spanish championship, and Real need one win or two draws to be crowned the country’s best team for the 34th time in history. The team led by Zidan has not been able to reach the Spanish title since 2017. The issue can be resolved on Thursday night by hosting Villarreal on its own square.The closest follower of Barcelona is four points behind in the tournament table. In case of an equal number of points, “Real” will be ahead, thanks to better results in mutual matches, so the Madrid team will have enough two draws in the last two matches.LaLiga 36th roundThe gameThe resultGoalkeepersOsasuna – Celtic2:1 (1:1)Galjego 23 ‘Arnaiss 90’ + 1 – Mina 10 ‘Valladolid – Barcelona0:1 (0:1)Vidals 15 ‘Atletico – Real Betis1:0 (0:0)Cost 74 ‘Spanish – Eibar0:2 (0:2)Esposito 25 ‘(11m) 36’Levante – Athletic0:2 (0:2)Bardi 71 ‘- Garcia 4’ 45 ‘+ 1Leganes – Valencia1:0 (1:0)Since 18 ‘(11m)Seville – Mallorca2:0 (1:0)Okamposs 41 ‘(11m) El Nezrī 84’Alaves – Getafe0:0Villarreal – Real Sociedad1:2 (0:0)Kazorla 85 ‘- Jose 61’ Jorente 75 ‘Granada – Real Madrid1:2 (0:2)Machiss 50 ‘- Mendy 10’ Benzema 16 ‘Tournament tableThe best goal scorersVThe teamSUNWITHGatesP1.Real Madrid 36 258366:22 83 2.Barcelona 36 247580:36 79 3.Atletico 36 1715448:26 66 4.Sevilla 36 1812653:34 66 5.Villarreal 36 1761358:47 57 6.Getafe 36 14121043:34 54 7.Real society 36 1661455:47 54 8.Athletic Bilbao 36 13121141:31 519.Valencia 36 13111245:52 5010.Granada 36 1481446:44 50 11.Osasuna 36 12121242:51 48 12.Levante 36 1271742:51 43 13.Real Betis36 9111544:56 41 14.Valladolid 36 8151329:40 39 15.Eibar 36 1091736:51 39 16.Celtic 36 7151435:46 36 17.Deportivo Alaves 36 991832:53 36 18.Leganes 36 7111826:49 32 19.Mallorca 36 952237:61 32 20.Spanish 36 592227:57 24 VSoccer playerClubGates1.L.MesiBarcelona22 (5)2.In K.BenzemaReal Madrid19 (4)3.Ž.MorenoVillarreal164.L.SvaressBarcelona15 (1)5.L.OkampossSevilla13 (4)6.J.AspassCeltic13 (5)7.R.GarsijaAthletic13 (7)8.A.BudimirsMallorca12 (2)A.MorataAtl.Madrid12 (2)last_img read more

Anthony Joshua ‘Desperate’ to Face Winner of Fury/Wilder Fight

first_imgAnthony Joshua Anthony Joshua has revealed he has already held talks to fight Deontay Wilderin 2020 in order to try and delay a THIRD bout between the American and Tyson Fury.Wilder holds the WBC belt, the one title missing from Joshua’s collection of IBF, WBA and WBO crowns and a fight with Wilder – as long as he beats Fury on February 22 – would provide an opportunity to unify the heavyweight division.But Joshua believes that Fury and Wilder could turn their rivalry into a trilogy and fight for a third time before the end of 2020, something Joshua has moved to try and prevent.Speaking to Sky Sports News, Joshua said: ‘Everyone wants Wilder to win because [a fight with me] is what everyone wants to see. Wilder has a great right hand, I have a great left hand. It is a great boxing match.‘We had a meeting about that. It has great potential. I heard [Wilder and Fury] have a third fight lined up towards the end of the year but we have to throw a curveball in there. ‘Something that gets Wilder’s attention providing he wins so that he thinks to himself: “Even though I have a rematch clause, I’ll see how I can manipulate my contract, get out of it, and fight for the undisputed championship”.’That said, Joshua wants Fury to defeat Wilder in Los Angeles next month so that he can organise a unifying fight in England. Joshua and Wilder are fighting on the west coast after their draw in 2018.‘I’m supporting Fury because imagine the local kids being able to watch the undisputed championship fight on their doorstep. I’d love it to be here in the UK.’ Joshua said, before firing a parting shot at the Gypsy King.‘He bet on Charles Martin to beat me, he bet on Joseph Parker to beat me! He’s a bit of a waffler. Fury does what Fury does. He said that he spoke to Conor McGregor on the phone? That was a lie as well!’While Wilder and Fury get it on for the second time in LA, Joshua is honing the details of a fight against one of his mandatory challengers in either Oleksandr Usyk or Kubrat Pulev.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more
