Frost & Sullivan Releases the Analysis of the SG and AWG Market
Recently, Frost & Sullivan (News - Alert) published a report on the mature SG and AWG markets. The firm stated that the market has made slow growth over the last few years because of lack of new products.
Signal generators (SG) are electronic applications that produce repeating or non-repeating electronic signals. Generally, they are used in designing, testing, troubleshooting, and repairing electronic or electroacoustic devices. Many companies have found artistic uses for this technology.
An arbitrary waveform generator (AWG) produces electrical waveforms. These waveforms are either repetitive or single-shot. These waveforms can be injected into a device under test and they can be analyzed as they progress through the device.
According to Frost & Sullivan, there has been continuous development of wireless communication standards, which could possibly result in a 'wireless decade' in the next ten years. The SGs market will be focusing on the quick development of standards such as wireless interoperability for microwave access (WiMAX (News - Alert)), third-generation (3G) wireless, fourth-generation (4G) wireless and wideband code-division multiple access (WCDMA), the company stated in a press release.
“However, the potential for growth in the AWG segment has been increasing with the introduction of next-generation products providing high-speed bandwidth,” said Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Mariano Kimbara. “An increasing number of digital modulations transport more data in the same bandwidth, making them more likely to generate imprecise levels of transmissions and phase angles and increasing the need for AWGs.”
Recently, the company released a report where it protected that over the next two years, the use of SNA in the telecommunications industry will grow considerably, followed by the online gaming industry which will show an identical high pace of growth.
The retail, finance and banking domains are expected to experience medium-high growth in terms of SNA. According to the study, SNA solution providers were asked to rank applications of SNA from 1 (never used) to 5 (always used) for different industries.
