Cleveland, Ohio - January 17, 2007 - Keithley Instruments, Inc. (NYSE:KEI), a leader in solutions for emerging measurement needs, announced today that its Model 2810 RF (Radio Frequency) Vector Signal Analyzer and Model 2910 RF Vector Signal Generator have been awarded Electronic Products Magazine's Product of the Year Award. Created in 1977, the Electronic Products Product of the Year Award recognizes products introduced during the preceding year that offer a significant advancement in a technology or its application, innovative design, or a substantial achievement in price/performance. The winner of the Award was selected by the editors of the magazine after a review of thousands of products and was announced in the January 2007 issue of the magazine.
The Models 2810 and 2910 instruments are innovative RF test equipment with an unrivaled combination of high-performance, speed, flexibility, ease of use, and compact size. The Model 2810 and Model 2910 are ideal partners for a wide range of applications, including mobile handset production test, testing mobile communication infrastructure, RFIC testing, wireless connectivity testing, and research and education in mobile communications. These instruments employ new approaches to test and measurement that enable customers to save testing time, effort, and money. The Models 2810 and 2910 are designed with a focus on reliability and come with an industry-leading three-year standard warranty, compared to the typical one-year warranty with similar products.
The Model 2810 RF Vector Signal Analyzer with powerful spectrum analyzer capabilities is designed to work in tandem with the Model 2910 RF Vector Signal Generator. The Model 2810 RF Vector Signal Analyzer's fast frequency tuning, rapid attenuator switching, and high speed digital signal processing increase throughput significantly, minimizing overall test costs. In R&D environments, the Model 2810's spectrum analyzer mode, fast sweep times, and narrow resolution bandwidths let you obtain the maximum information from a spectrum in the least amount of time for characterization and analysis. With a modulation measurement bandwidth in excess of 30MHz, the Model 2810 is capable of capturing and analyzing the current and the next-generation of high data rate, complex modulated signals.
The Model 2910 RF Vector Signal Generator's continuous frequency range of 400MHz - 2.5GHz spans the key mobile wireless frequency bands, and its software defined radio architecture (SDR) lets it adapt readily to changing test requirements. The Model 2910's 64 mega-sample, 40MHz arbitrary waveform generator can output any type of RF signal, which enables researchers and designers to develop next-generation signaling technologies. The intuitive, Windows-CE-based interface, with both touch screen and USB-mouse operation, allows even occasional users to test with confidence.
Both instruments offer three interfaces for automated control: IEEE-488, USB, and LAN. The LAN interface is compatible with the new LXI standard for test instrumentation. Thus, both instruments can be monitored and controlled from their own addressable websites.
Keithley's instruments deliver high-performance measurements for the lowest test equipment investment. They are ideal for companies testing wireless communication devices and components and faced with intense budget and time-to-market constraints but cannot compromise on measurement quality or ease of use.
