Anritsu Company, a global provider of test solutions, announces three of its test solutions have been named finalists in the prestigious Best in Test Awards competition, held annually by UBM Tech’s Test & Measurement World. The MP1800A BERT Signal Quality Analyzer (SQA), VectorStar ME7838A broadband vector network analyzer (VNA), and MG3710A vector signal generator were selected by the editors of Test & Measurement World as important and innovative new products in the electronics test and measurement industry.

“Since 1991, we have had the annual tradition of selecting the Best in Test Award winners,” said Janine Love, Editor in Chief, Test & Measurement World, UBM Tech. “We received an outstanding group of new innovative products and services this year. We look forward to hearing what our readers think of these selections and which products they believe will define our industry for years to come.”

Best in Test voting is currently underway and will be completed on December 31, 2012. Winners will be announced during the Best in Test 2013 Awards ceremony on January 31, 2013 during a ceremony held in the Chiphead Theater in conjunction with DesignCon 2013, which takes place January 28-31, 2013 at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, California.

“Anritsu is honored to once again be nominated for one of the preeminent awards and acknowledgements in our industry. We have earned Best in Test awards in previous years and hope to continue that tradition this year, as our VectorStar ME7838A, 32G multi-channel BERT MP1800A, and vector signal generator MG3710A all address market needs unlike competitive offerings,” said Wade Hulon, General Manager and Vice President of Anritsu Company.

The VectorStar ME7838A, a finalist in the RF/microwave test category, features best-in-class performance. The broadband system provides R&D engineers designing 4-port or differential mm-wave components with the ability to sweep power across a wide range of frequencies from 70 kHz to 125 GHz in a single sweep, and up to 750 GHz using external mm-wave modules without the need for manual attenuators or software feedback control.

A finalist in the signal integrity/high-speed test category, the MP1800A has 28G/32G multi-channel modules that bring unprecedented performance and analysis to engineers designing, developing and evaluating high-speed interconnect interfaces up to 32.1 Gbit/s. It is well suited for DP-QPSK 100G long haul applications where four synchronized PPGs with precise skew control are required, as well as to accurately measure jitter tolerance and X-talk on high-speed backplanes and interconnects.

The MG3710A vector signal generators reduce operating costs and increase production yield by eliminating the need for multiple instruments. Its unique design allows the MG3710A to generate test signals based on all leading technologies, including LTE, LTE Advanced, W-CDMA/HSPA, CDMA2000, GSM and PDC, as well as WLAN, Bluetooth®, and ISDB-T.
