New methods of buying test equipment

Traditionally test equipment has been bought from the manufacturer but there are other channels, particularly as distributors up their game and increasingly take on the supply of test instrumentation.

There is a wide variety of test equipment that can be bought.

Energy performance is key to 5G networks

The development of advanced mobile communications systems like 5G is not simply about delivering ever-higher data rates and increased network capacity. Now, more than ever, energy efficiency is becoming a vital consideration.

<p>The development of advanced mobile communications systems like 5G is not simply about delivering ever-higher data rates and increased network capacity. Now, more than ever, energy efficiency is becoming a vital consideration. Much has been written about the motivation for this, to reduce operational and ownership costs, as well as the means for achieving the performance improvements these new system architectures demand. Some of this bears repeating briefly below but underpinning the successful rollout o

GaN’s Ground-Floor Opportunity
The electronics industry has a major role to play in helping to save energy, by enabling better equipment and new ways of working and living that that are more efficient and environmentally friendly. Maintaining the pace of technological progress is key, but improvements become both smaller and harder to achieve as each technology matures. We can see this trend in the development of power semiconductors, as device designers seek more complex and expensive ways to reduce switching energy and RDS(ON) against silicon’s natural limitations.
