Digital radio test set has low phase RF signal generator
The 3920B Digital Radio Test Set by Aeroflex features a low phase noise RF signal generator for enhanced spectral purity for narrowband or analog receiver testing.
Aeroflex Incorporated's (NYSE:ARX), 3920B Digital Radio Test Set is designed for Analog AM and FM, Digital P25, P25 Phase II, DMR, NXDN, dPMR, TETRA and TEDS technologies. The 3920B features a low phase noise RF signal generator in addition to the already advanced functionality available on the Aeroflex 3900 Series Radio Test Sets. The 3920B is the direct replacement for all versions of the Aeroflex 3900 Series, including the 3901, the 3902, and the 3920.
The 3920B's low phase noise RF signal generator provides enhanced spectral purity with SSB phase noise specified at -110 dBc/Hz at 10 kHz offset. This level of performance is achieved at an offset from the carrier that is significantly less than the industry standard for this type of specification, which is typically 20 kHz. The ability of the 3920B to achieve such low phase noise specifications close to the carrier, makes the 3920B an ideal test solution for today’s digital narrowband or analog receiver testing where narrowband phase noise is critical.

Annual Salary Survey
After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.
The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
