German take a look at and measurement firm Rohde & Schwarz stated that it ended its fiscal yr with “elevated income and powerful order consumption.”
R&S is privately held, however the firm nonetheless experiences just a few of its monetary and working highlights every year. For its fiscal 2021/2022 yr, the corporate stated that revenues have been as much as 2.53 billion euros (about $2.5 billion), or about in comparison with 2.28 billion (about $2.26 billion) in its earlier fiscal yr. The corporate stated that every of its three divisions achieved double-digit development, however changing orders to billable gross sales was “impeded by the tight provide chain scenario.” Having vertically built-in vegetation in Germany, Czech Republic, Singapore and Malaysia helped the corporate keep steady, nevertheless.
Rohde & Schwarz stated that it noticed “robust demand for high-performance wi-fi testers, sign mills, spectrum analyzers and oscilloscopes” within the wi-fi communications and automotive applied sciences sectors, and that its companies offering safety scanners navy communications techniques and air visitors management techniques additionally have been on stable footing.
Rohde closed out June 2022 with round 13,000 staff, holding regular from final yr’s quantity.
In different take a look at information:
–Keysight Applied sciences stated it’s the first to get International Certification Discussion board validation for a take a look at case that mixes 5G and world navigation satellite tv for pc system (GNSS), or 5G Location-based Companies (LBS) Assisted Galileo (A-Galileo). The take a look at case was enabled by Keysight’s S8705A RF/RRM DVT and Conformance Toolset, the corporate added. The supply of a take a look at case for 5G LBS A-Galileo will “speed up the implementation of LBS in smartphones by enabling cell phone distributors to confirm that designs comply to the most recent 3GPP specs that help correct location positioning,” Keysight stated.
–Alerts Analysis Group’s newest take a look at varied points of 5G is out, this one centered on how 5G millimeter-wave machine efficiency and battery drainhas improved over the previous few years. New mmWave 5G units and chipsets have made important progress in energy use and in comparison with earlier iterations, based on the brand new benchmark testing. SRG seemed on the units’ electrical present drain in relationship to bandwidth consumption for each uplink and downlink, and located a 180% enchancment in present effectivity within the downlink. Full story right here.
-The method of deploying a personal mobile community is totally different than enterprise Wi-Fi, nevertheless it’s one which corporations who want to discover 4G or 5G personal networks must be conversant in. Regression testing, testing of the WAN, fronthaul and backhaul and spectrum co-existence and interference mitigation are simply a number of the necessary testing points. Learn extra element right here in a chunk that includes Viavi Options and German system integrator Mugler SE.
-Federal testing associated to cellular community operators’ use of their all-important C-Band spectrum for 5G continues, with a latest testing report that seeks to reply two engineering-related questions: When or if 5G interferes with radalt receivers, what’s the bodily mechanism of that interference?; and two, at what distances and in what instructions between radalts and 5G transmitters does that interference happen? Key takeaways out there in this piece.
-Aerospace and protection firm Ametek, which additionally has companies together with take a look at gear and digital measurement, stated that it has made two new acquisitions: Navitar and RTDS Applied sciences. The 2 separate purchases price about $430 million complete and convey an extra $100 million in annual gross sales to Ametek. Each corporations will turn into a part of Ametek’s Digital Devices Group. Navitar focuses on high-precision optical parts and options to be used circumstances together with machine imaginative and prescient, robotics and industrial automation, whereas RTDS Applied sciences gives real-time energy simulation techniques utilized by utilities.
“These companies properly complement our present capabilities and strategically increase our presence in extremely enticing secular development areas,” stated David Zapico, Ametek’s chairman and CEO.
Each corporations be a part of AMETEK as a part of its Digital Devices Group. The transactions have already closed.
