Meeting the needs of developers designing chipsets and modules in line with IEEE 802.11ac, the Rohde & Schwarz FSW-K91ac signal and spectrum analyzer offers T&M equipment required to generate standard compliant WLAN signals in the lab.
The FSW-K91ac option provides an integrated demodulation bandwidth of 160 MHz, enabling the analyzer to record and demodulate the full bandwidth of a WLAN signal in line with 802.11ac. It provides a low error vector magnitude of less than -45 dB and high measurement speed of less than 100 ms per measurement. It features a 12.1” touchscreen with MultiView to simultaneously view multiple measurements and applications.
WinIQSIM2 simulation software, together with the SMx-K286 option can be used to generate signals. The combination of the AFQ100B baseband generator and SGS RF signal source addresses signals with contiguous and non-contiguous 80 MHz + 80 MHz or 160 MHz bandwidths. Available.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
