Introduces Bluetooth Measurement Options
announced a new analysis package that equips two of the company's
proven spectrum analyzer models to perform a suite of automated
tests for the Bluetooth protocol, an emerging wireless LAN
technology. The new Bluetooth analysis software for the R3267
and R3273 spectrum analyzers provides several enhancements
to the existing instruments, including an easy-to-use interface
and a series of preset Bluetooth measurement routines.
R3267 and R3273 spectrum analyzers are high-performance, general-purpose
instruments with ample performance in terms of resolution,
and dynamic range of Bluetooth measurements. Adding the Option
66 Bluetooth Analysis software to either instrument installs
a variety of automated tests, including Occupied Bandwidth,
spectrum mask tests and On/off Ratio. The included measurement
procedures are present to meet current Bluetooth specifications.
When equipped with the Bluetooth Option (Option 66), the R3267
and R3273 can perform all required Bluetooth RF (radio frequency)
tests, including demodulation tests.
the Bluetooth option, users only need to know how to operate
a conventional spectrum analyzer. The new feature set also
offers the ability to display multiple measurement results
ArchitectureIntel has created two communication silicon architectures
aimed at speeding the development of new communication equipment
and wireless clients that address the opportunities emerging
from the convergence of voice and data networks. The Intel
Internet Exchange Architecture (Intel IXA) addresses the network
infrastructure needs of next-generation networks. The Intel
Personal Client Architecture (Intel PCA) will speed the transition
to next-generation wireless clients.
need for greater Internet bandwidth is being driven by the
rapid growth of wireless devices, continued growth in wired
Internet access, and the convergence of voice and data over
next-generation networks. This explosion of digital data over
the Internet creates a market opportunity for Intel's communications
wireless building block components can be used to develop
handheld devices taking advantage of Intel PCA.
Intel Strong ARM processor and future processors using the
Intel Xscale micro-architecture are ideal for processing solutions
that need high performance and low power consumption. Intel
also offers cellular baseband chipsets and high-speed flash
memory for the communications market.

Launches Broadband Engines
Networks has launched the DV2000 and D2000 broadband engines,
the first two products in its family of Gateway-on-a-Chip
solutions designed specifically to give CPE manufacturers
a critical time-to-market advantage as well as significant
development cost savings.
Ishoni DV2000 and D2000 can quickly and easily be designed
into manufacturers broadband CPE, allowing end-user customers
to save thousands of dollars in equipment costs and monthly
service fees by using a single broadband connection for all
their voice and secure data needs.
