Various innovations in PXI instrumentation have made measurements faster and enabled PXI instruments to improve RF measurement performance. The NI PXIe-5630, a two-port vector network analyzer (VNA), has a front panel that is less than seven square inches in size. Agilent's large PXI product introduction is enabled by a new level of performance available in PXI, improving speed performance over existing parallel bus architectures and addressing scalability to large systems while making use of existing PXI modules. Using the PCI Express backplane, today's PXI RF signal analyzers are capable of streaming IQ samples directly from onboard memory to other PXI modules at rates of up to 800 MB/s. Aeroflex has launched the 3000 Series, a PXI-based modular test suite for mobile phone and general-purpose wireless test in October 2003. The 3000 series is supported by the PXI Studio application software for waveform generation and vector signal analysis of complex wireless communications systems.

After serving as something of a cash cow for HP and then Agilent Technologies, the electronic measurement business is now charting its own course as an independent company - Keysight Technologies. Microwave Journal was honored to be the first of the industry trade media to visit and tour Keysight's new Santa Rosa headquarters. This special report summarizes what we saw and learned.

The International Microwave Symposium (IMS), also referred to as Microwave Week, held its annual gathering in early June with a return to the Seattle venue last visited by the industry en-masse in 2002. Many IMS delegates and exhibitors have been attending year after year, turning the event into an annual reunion with no shortage of familiar faces and a few facelifts. RFMD took the occasion to share the company's new look and branding with its industry friends. Among the new exhibitors were a number of smaller local companies that took advantage of the venues return to the Pacific Northwest. Several sizable companies, which are perhaps better known for their products outside the microwave space and who just began exhibiting over the past couple of years, increased their presence at this year's show.
