Rohde & Schwarz Unveils New Budget-Friendly Spectrum Analyzer

Rohde & Schwarz has introduced a low cost spectrum analyzer with innovative features and excellent performance. The R&S FPC1000 spectrum analyzer provides solid RF performance and a future-ready, software-upgradeable feature set. It has the largest high-resolution display in its class plus remote control options via smart wireless mobile apps or PC software. These characteristics make it ideal for basic research, production and educational applications that require spectrum analysis.The base model of the R&S FPC1000 covers a frequency range from 5 kHz to 1 GHz, which can be expanded to 2 GHz or 3 GHz via software upgrades (keycode upgrade concept) – a new feature in this instrument class. Upgrades can be purchased as needed and are available as soon as the keycode is entered. Recalibration is not required.A critical characteristic when measuring extremely weak signals is high sensitivity. The R&S FPC1000 provides a low noise floor level of -150 dBm (typ), which can be further extended to -165 dBm (typ) with an optional, keycode-activated preamplifier. Its high max. input power allows users to measure RF signals up to +30 dBm (1 W), which is 10 times more power than offered by other entry class spectrum analyzers. The combination of low noise floor and high max. input power results in an exceptionally wide measurement dynamic range.The R&S FPC1000 has a resolution of 1 Hz and a 10.1” (26 cm) display that is 26 percent larger with a 2.6 times higher display resolution. This high measurement and display resolution allows signals to be measured in razor-sharp detail.Virtual control enables easy remote control and measurement. The R&S FPC1000 supports optional Wi-Fi connectivity in addition to wired Ethernet. With R&S InstrumentView for Microsoft Windows and the iOS/Android App based R&S MobileView platforms, measurements can be performed anywhere, anytime.Rohde & Schwarz is demonstrating the R&S FPC1000 to the public for the first time at the embedded world 2017 international trade fair in Nuremberg, Germany, from March 14 to 16, 2017. The R&S FPC1000 will be available from Rohde & Schwarz and selected distribution channel partners as of March 14, 2017. read more

Dinilai Bakal Rugikan Persaingan, Uni Eropa Blokir Merger Antara Siemens dan Alstom

first_imgSalah satu armada dari Alstom. Sumber: Alstom Uni Eropa telah memblokir merger yang dilakukan oleh Siemens dan Alstom, dimana mereka akan menciptakan sebuah kereta yang setara dengan pembangkit tenaga listrik Airbus. Regulator antitrust Uni Eropa mengatakan pada hari Rabu (6/2/2019) bahwa menggabungkan bisnis manufaktur kereta api antara perusahaan Jerman dan Perancis ini akan merugikan persaingan dan menyebabkan harga yang lebih tinggi di Eropa.Baca Juga: Whoosh!

Struktur serupa juga dipercaya dapat membantu Airbus (EADSF) untuk bersaing dengan kompetitornya asal Negeri Paman Sam, Boeing (BA).“Eropa sangat membutuhkan reformasi struktural dalam cara membentuk masa depan industrinya,” ujar CEO Siemens, Joe Kaeser.“Melindungi kepentingan pelanggan secara lokal tidak berarti bahwa Eropa tidak dapat berada pada tingkat yang sama dengan negara-negara terkemuka seperti Cina, Amerika Serikat dan lainnya,” tandasnya.Di sisi lain, Alstom mengatakan dalam sebuah pernyataan bahwa mereka menyesali keputusan tersebut. Perusahaan-perusahaan mengindikasikan bahwa mereka tidak akan mengajukan banding atas keputusan di tingkat pengadilan.Sebelumnya, kesepakatan yang diusulkan untuk menggabungkan Alstom Perancis dan unit transportasi Siemens Jerman diumumkan pada September 2017. Rencana itu kemudian dengan cepat mendapat dukungan dari pemerintah Perancis dan Jerman, yang ingin sekali menciptakan “juara” Eropa baru dengan kekuatan finansial yang dibutuhkan untuk bersaing di seluruh dunia.Salah satu pesaing utama dalam kompetisi ini adalah China Railway Rolling Stock Corporation (CRRC), salah satu pemasok peralatan kereta api terbesar di dunia, yang telah memenangkan kontrak besar untuk memasok armada metro untuk di Boston, Chicago dan Melbourne.Baca Juga: Tuai Kontroversi Hadirkan Kereta Cepat, Akankah California Rasakan Nasib Seperti Indonesia?Skala pendapatannya juga sangat besar: Siemens dan Alstom telah menggabungkan penjualan tahunan dengan pendapatan sekira €15miliar (US$18miliar), sedikit lebih banyak dari setengah pendapatan CRRC yang menyentuh angka 207 miliar yuan (US$31miliar) pada 2017.Senada dengan suara kekecewaan lainnya, Menteri Perekonomian Perancis, Bruno Le Maire pun menelurkan statemen serupa.“Ini merupakan pilihan buruk bagi Eropa,” ujar Bruno.last_img read more

‘You’re okay with this?’ – Guardiola draws comparisons ­between Liverpool and Man City title runs

first_imgLONDON, England (AP): Pep Guardiola doesn’t forget.After Manchester City failed to cut into Liverpool’s 22-point lead by losing 2-0 at Tottenham yesterday, Guardiola’s mind turned back to 2018 and irritation at comments from the English Premier League leadership.Guardiola’s team winning the league by 19 points prompted Richard Scudamore to express a desire for “someone to get a little bit closer to Manchester City” while also praising the team’s excellence.Scudamore is no longer running the league. Guardiola wonders if the competition bosses are fine with a lead so commanding that Liverpool are in line to seal the title in March with two months of the season remaining.“An owner from the Premier League said that cannot happen again, so it’s not good for the Premier League (that) City win the title in that way with 100 points,” Guardiola said, without naming Scudamore. “So now it’s Liverpool you have to be concerned (about) the owner of the Premier League.” A CLEAR PATH It is City’s six losses in 25 league games this season that have thwarted the quest for a third straight title and put Liverpool on a clear path to ending a 30-year championship drought.Outplaying and outshooting Tottenham counted for little after second-place City were reduced to 10 men on the hour when Oleksandr Zinchenko’s push on Harry Winks to halt a counter­attack saw the midfielder shown a second yellow card.Within three minutes, Tottenham were in front with a goal from Steven Bergwijn on his debut. The recruit from PSV Eindhoven brought down a pass from Lucas Moura with his chest before ­taking a touch to control the ball and ­volleying into the net.Summer record-signing Tanguy Ndombele created the second for Son Heung-min, who struck past goalkeeper Ederson in the 71st minute.“I don’t think we collapsed,” Guardiola said. “This team is built to do something and play in a certain way. Ten against 11 after the chances we missed in this game … still I think we were there. It’s not easy.”It would have been easier had Ilkay Gundogan not seen his first-half penalty saved by Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris.Victory for Tottenham lifted Jose Mourinho’s side to within four points of Chelsea in the fourth UEFA Champions League place.

Japan counting on Honda and Kagawa at World Cup

first_imgKeisuke Honda and Shinji Kagawa are Japan’s biggest stars — and the heart of their team’s attack.Both are coming off disappointing seasons with their European clubs, Honda at AC Milan and Kagawa at Manchester United. Honda fell far below the hype that accompanied him when he left CSKA Moscow in January to be Milan’s new No. 10. Kagawa had a season of frustration at Old Trafford as he struggled to get playing time under new manager David Moyes.That could be a worry for Japan as the players prepare for the World Cup, hoping to make the knockout stages. It could also be an advantage: Low expectations, fresh legs and, above all, something to prove may be a winning formula for this duo in Brazil.“The important stuff starts from now,” Kagawa told reporters after Japan’s first training session in Sorocaba, Brazil on Sunday. “All my body is thinking about is the first game.”If Honda and Kagawa find their form at the World Cup, they will cause trouble for their opponents.Both are creative players who have an almost clairvoyant understanding of one another. The pinpoint passing and flowing attacks that have become the signature of Italian coach Alberto Zaccheroni’s Japan are orchestrated by these two complementary talents.“Honda is so physical and dynamic,” said Japan-based football writer Andrew McKirdy. “And players like Kagawa who are very nimble and sharp . can profit from feeding off Honda’s movements.”The players’ struggles this season were not entirely of their own making.Honda arrived at a Milan in turmoil. The one-time formidable champions were languishing in the middle of the Serie A table. Adding to the challenge of adjusting to a new league in mid-season, Milan sacked manager Massimiliano Allegri the day Honda made his Italian league debut.New coach Clarence Seedorf, who was sacked by Milan on Monday, played Honda on the side, an unnatural position for a player who thrives in the central midfield position.Kagawa also was shunted to the side whenever Moyes chose to play him. He showed some of the touches of class that made him a star at his former club Borussia Dortmund, where he won the Bundesliga twice. But he never won the respect of Moyes, whose troubled stewardship of Manchester United after the departure of Alex Ferguson created a difficult environment in which to make an impact.Kagawa weighed up the pressures of playing for a top Premier League team with representing Japan after training on Monday.“For Japan, you bear the expectations of the country, so it’s a different kind of pressure,” Kagawa said. “On a day to day level at Manchester United, they’re always demanding results and you’re competing with lots of players.”The players also have personalities that complement one another. Kagawa brings a touch of mischief to the pitch and off of it — making him a popular presence in the changing room.At a Christmas party for United, Kagawa had his teammates in stitches by cranking up the music and dancing Gangnam Style.Honda exudes a certain arrogance in a nation that prizes humility, yet he seems to be an inspiration to his fellow Japanese players.Days after Goldman Sachs gave Japan exactly “zero percent” chance of winning the World Cup, Honda told Japanese media that the Blue Samurai could go all the way.That’s almost certainly a day-dream.But Japan does have the potential to pull off one or two surprises, and has every chance of emerging from a Group C that also features Colombia, Ivory Coast and Greece.Much will depend, though, on whether this Honda can find his form and become his team’s Ferrari.last_img read more

Arsenal and Chelsea among the ‘sharks’ chasing what will be huge…

first_imgThat’s because as reported by Portuguese newspaper Record today, the Gunners and the Blues both watched the player’s fantastic performance for the Eagles last night.Félix has scored a hat-trick in the 4-2 win over Eintracht Frankfurt, giving Benfica a big lead in the Europa League quarter finals.Record writes that Arsenal and Chelsea were among the ‘sharks’ who went to the Estádio da Luz to watch the youngster, and are now part of the competition to take him from Lisbon.Embed from Getty ImagesAlthough Félix is one of the most wanted youngsters in Europe, we hadn’t seen the London sides getting linked to him since his debut for the club.Currently protected by a €120m release clause, the teenager has 15 goals and seven assists for the Eagles this season.Now being the youngest Benfica player to score a hat-trick in an European competition, Félix should attract an even bigger battle for him in the summer.Chelsea have been linked repeatedly in the past, but their interest depends on the outcome of the transfer ban saga.

Pienaar Reveals Why He Called Time On Football Career

first_imgSteven Pienaar has revealed the reason behind the decision to retire from football.According to the former South African international midfielder, he decided to hang up his boots to spend more time with his family.The 35-year-old had earlier announced his retirement on Wednesday night after spending almost two decades playing for clubs like Ajax Cape Town, Bidwest Wits, Ajax Amsterdam, Everton and Tottenham Hotspur.He left South African side Bidwest Wits earlier this year and has decided to call it quit with his football career.While giving his reason in a chat with soccer laduma, Pienaar said: “Obviously I want to focus on the next step in my career, but I also want to be closer with my family, including my mom who’s not getting any younger. I’ve missed so many years to be with them all, so now I’ve finally got a chance. I just want to enjoy every moment that I can spend with my mom and my kids as well.”“I’ll be between South Africa and Amsterdam now. That’s how I’ve planned it. I have a daughter and my mom here, and two daughters that side, so I need to balance it out. So we’ll just have to see how it goes in the next few months and take it from there.” he added.The former Bafana Bafana of South Africa captain further stated that: “I should have an exciting announcement to make in the next couple of months, there are just some final details to be sorted out, but keep an eye on my social media. That’s all I’ll say for now.”Steven Pienaar is a veteran of two FIFA World Cups with the Bafana Bafana.He scored three goals in 61 caps for the team in addition to wearing the captain’s armband on numerous occasions.

WEEKEND PREVIEW: The BIG 7

first_imgThe Australian Open ReturnsThe Australian Open is back this weekend. We already pencilled an in-depth preview of the opening Grand Slam of the year. However, some facts may interest you.Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic – the two most decorated players at this event – are both aiming for a ride to the seventh heaven. Both men are tied on six titles each, and may well need a single game in the final to decide who the ultimate best on the hard surface is.For the women, there have been eight different grand slam winners since the start of 2017. This means, each of the past eight grand slams has produced eight different winners.In that time, only Serena Williams managed to play in consecutive finals, perhaps a sign that she is returning to her utmost best. I’m staying glued for the best tennis.NPFL Resumes after a 7-month hiatus…The league was supposed to be on break due to the involvement of the men’s senior national team at the World Cup in Russia – this discussion deserves its own article as the league should never have been halted in the first place – as it turned out, a huge leadership crisis unfolded and it led to the league being discontinued altogether and the league leaders unanimously proclaimed league winners.Then the hullabaloo of the NNL, and then the intervention of the NFF which ensured that league football can resume in the country. That said, the league will resume on Sunday. Hopefully, it will not be disrupted by another crisis.Ole Gunnar Solskjear finally gets a real testIt’s been three weeks and five games and Solskjear’s Manchester United have taken opponents apart with relative ease and abundance of flair.Pogba, Rashford, Martial, Lingard, Matic…players who looked out of place a month ago now shoulder the burden of the team and thriving at it.In the reverse fixture, Spurs ran out 3-0 winners at Old Trafford but had Man United converted half the chances they created in the opening 35 minutes, perhaps the three goals Spurs scored could have been mere consolations. One can only wonder how such an emphatic result could have spurred this team on, but here is an opportunity to exert revenge and an event better opponent for Solskjear to finalize his audition. Tricky London derby for ArsenalWith Spurs and Manchester United battling for three points at Wembley, an opportunity may have been presented to Arsenal.Arsenal will not leapfrog Spurs with a win over West Ham, but should Mauricio Pochettino’s side fail to pick all three points, Arsenal will effectively cut their seven-point lead. And there is a good chance of taking maximum points against a rival that has managed only a win in the past four league games. Clippers face the Nuggets in back-to-back clash for playoffs spotThe battle for playoff spot in the Western conference is getting increasingly difficult by the day. The Nuggets are surprisingly leading the conference, which say a whole lot about the invincibility of Golden State Warriors – passing through their toughest moments in recent history.The Los Angeles Clippers currently occupy the eight spot on the conference log, but may well be farther behind after this trip to conference leaders, Denver Nuggets. It equally presents Golden State with a chance to retake the conference lead.Lifeless Real Madrid needs a statement win soon…Yet another disappointing display and lack of character quickly made up for by a 3-0 first leg defeat of Leganes in the Copa del Rey but it does not hide the fact that Real Madrid are struggling in every department and Santiago Solari’s player management is questionable.Had Solari begun the season as manager, he would have been sacked by now and perhaps replaced with Julen Lopetegui. At least, under the former Spain manager, Real Madrid had an identity, now only the desire of an 18-year old Vinicius Junior spurs Madrid on.Fortunately, Real Madrid can look to an inconsistent Real Betis as the perfect team to revive their season. But so should Betis treat Real Madrid if they must keep their European dream alive. Relatedlast_img read more

Comedian Chris D’Elia denies accusations of harassing underage women

first_imgChristopher Polk/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) — Chris D’Elia is shutting down claims he “knowingly” engaged in any inappropriate activity with minors. “I know I have said and done things that might have offended people during my career, but I have never knowingly pursued any underage women at any point,” the 40-year-old comedian explained in a statement to TMZ.  “All of my relationships have been both legal and consensual and I have never met or exchanged any inappropriate photos with the people who have tweeted about me.”He continued, “That being said, I really am truly sorry. I was a dumb guy who ABSOLUTELY let myself get caught up in my lifestyle. That’s MY fault. I own it. I’ve been reflecting on this for some time now and I promise I will continue to do better.”The statement comes after D’Elia became a trending topic on Twitter when user Simone Rossi detailed her experience with him. “imagine being 16 and being groomed by a stand up comedian twice ur age and the only reason you never met up and never got physically m*lested was because u had just gotten a boyfriend ur own age,” she shared in a thread complete with screenshots from 2015 to back up her claims. “i am also definitely not the only underage girl he did this too. just an FYI,” she followed up. Other women have since come forward and shared that they’ve had similar experiences with the New Jersey native while they were underage as well. Rossi and others have also pointed out the irony that D’Elia has portrayed a pedophile on the both the hit Netflix series You and Comedy Central’s Workaholics.By Danielle LongCopyright © 2020, ABC Audio.
