Smarter Micro Selects Agilent PXIe Modular Vector Signal Test Solution to Accelerate the Development of its Reconfigurable Multimode, Multiband Power Amplifier

Agilent Technologies Inc. announced that Smarter Micro has selected the Agilent PXIe modular vector signal test solution to accelerate the development of its latest reconfigurable multimode, multiband power amplifier. Smarter Micro is a fabless semiconductor company that designs and develops radio frequency (RF) integrated circuits for the communications industry. Smarter Micro is using Agilent's test solutions in the design of its new S308 power amplifier, which significantly reduces the complexity of the fourth-generation mobile design. To achieve multimode hybrid networking and seamless mobile roaming, mobile device manufacturers must meet the telecom operator's multimode and multi-frequency specifications. Smarter Micro is addressing this need by using Agilent's modular vector signal test solutions in the development of its multimode multiband RF frontend OMNI-Smart platform and the S308 reconfigurable multimode multiband power amplifier (MMPA). The S308 covers the full frequency bands from 698 MHz to 2690 MHz and is able to support UMTS, TD-SCDMA, FDD LTE and TD-LTE standards. The full-frequency MMPA is designed to significantly reduce the mobile radio-frequency design complexity and development cycle, thereby reducing the total solution cost. However, multimode and multiband brings additional test challenges, such as longer test times during the product development, verification and manufacturing stages. The Agilent test solution reduced the verification test times by enabling power servos to converge faster with outstanding linearity, repeatability and absolute amplitude accuracy. The test speed exceeded previous test instruments used and accelerated multiband, multimode and many other test evaluation requirements. In addition to design verification, the fast and accurate PXIe modular power amplifier test solution was suitable for high-volume production.

Agilent Technologies Unveils New Molecular Solution

Agilent Technologies Inc. has unveiled a molecular solution that combines its Oligo Library Synthesis capability for FISH, or fluorescence in situ hybridization, with its SureDesign online application to produce custom FISH probes. Used together, these powerful tools enable laboratories to maintain complete control over probe coverage and achieve maximum target-sequence-specificity for both human and animal models. Unlike traditional probes that rely on BAC (bacterial artificial chromosome) clone technology, Agilent's FISH probes are designed in silico, which enables precision targeting in regions of <100kb, and in non-standard sequences such as non-human targets. Agilent SureDesign enables researchers to design unique FISH probes, microarrays and target enrichment libraries, as well as sample a variety of designs before actually placing an order. Once a custom FISH probe order is submitted, the design is sent directly to Agilent's oligo synthesis pipeline and downstream FISH probe production.

Agilent Technologies Inc. Introduces the SureSelect Clinical Research Exome

Agilent Technologies Inc. introduced the SureSelect Clinical Research Exome. The performance-optimized exome design was developed in collaboration with researchers from Emory University and the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. SureSelect Human All Exon V5 was used as the core for the new design. Performance has been enhanced in disease-associated regions, providing 10% deeper coverage within these targets from only 4Gb of sequencing, while maintaining excellent coverage in other exome regions. The disease-relevant regions in the clinical research exome consist of gene targets commonly associated with, or known to cause, disease, including targets identified in OMIM, HGMD and NCBI's ClinVar databases. Additional ancestry- and identity-informative content has also been included to facilitate sample tracking. Custom content can be added to the Clinical Research Exome using SureDesign, a free online design tool for SureSelect. The Clinical Research Exome targets approximately 54Mb of content and is optimized for coverage uniformity, enabling proportional performance improvement as sequencing allocation per library is increased. The SureSelect Clinical Research Exome can be paired with existing SureSelect kits to provide significantly reduced hybridization times-as little as 90 minutes-and provide sequencing-ready libraries in just one day.
