Rohde & Schwarz will be exhibiting their T&M Solutions for the Automotive Industry at the Automotive Testing Expo 2016 in Stuttgart, from 31 May to 2 June 2016. For testing driver assistance systems, they will be showcasing their FSW85 high-end signal and spectrum analyzer, with the analysis option for FMCW chirp signals. This instrument is perfect for analyzing automotive radar sensors designed for designated frequency bands around 24 GHz and 79 GHz. It is the only instrument on the market that can cover the frequency range from 2 Hz to 85 GHz in a single sweep. Its optional analysis bandwidth of up to 2 GHz makes it possible to demodulate and thoroughly analyze even extremely broadband signals.The ARTS9510 radar target simulator is the perfect complement to this signal analyzer. It will be on display at the trade fair in a T&M solution optimized for production tests on automotive radar sensors. This system consists of their ARTS9510, the TS7124 RF shielded box and NRP8S power sensor. On an automated production line, this system can be used to measure a radar sensor’s most important RF parameters and maximum power leakage. It is so compact that it fits in a 19″ cabinet.Since wireless communications modules are becoming increasingly common in cars, the automotive industry is also faced with the challenge of testing mobility scenarios such as data and voice handovers. Rohde & Schwarz offers CMWcards, a user-friendly graphical tool for creating signaling tests on the CMW500 wideband radio communication tester. These CMWcards lets users simulate all currently required signaling procedures in the lab. Not only does this reduce the number of necessary drive tests in the field, but it also make errors completely reproducible.The testing requirements for automatic motor vehicle emergency call systems remain a current issue, regardless of whether they are for the European eCall (mandatory in the EU from April 2018) or the Russian ERA-Glonass. Their eCall/ERA-Glonass test system consisting of the CMW500 and the GNSS-capable SMBV100A vector signal generator is a tried and tested hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) solution from them, for standard-compliant end-to-end tests for wireless communications and GNSS-capable components in in-vehicle systems (IVS).The number of transmitters and receivers inside cars is also increasing now that modern infotainment systems bundle the car radio, navigation system, handsfree equipment, mobile Internet and other functions. Component manufacturers not only have to test diversity reception and signal handover, they also have to make sure that the different signals do not interfere with each other. Rohde & Schwarz will be demonstrating their BTC broadcast test center a solution for simulating cellular signals such as LTE and non-cellular signals such as WLAN and Bluetooth, which can also interfere with the wanted signal.For sophisticated ElectroMagnetic Compatibility certification and development measurements, they will present their new ESW EMI test receiver. This new test receiver offers the widest dynamic range and highest level accuracy on the market. It can be used to conduct certification tests in line with all relevant commercial and military standards such as CISPR, EN, FCC and MIL. It is also ideal for performing EMC tests in the automotive industry in line with the highest internal company standards. This receiver is extremely fast thanks to the integrated FFT-based TD scan and two parallel CISPR detectors. With the switchable notch filters for the license-free 2.4 GHz and 5.8 GHz ISM bands, the R&S ESW also provides reliable EMC measurements for high carrier signals. Optional realtime spectrum analysis with its persistence mode and frequency mask trigger enables users to identify hidden or superimposed disturbances and analyze their causes.They also offers a number of oscilloscopes solutions that are tailored to the automotive industry. Their T&M expert will demonstrate on the RTE digital oscilloscope the trigger and decoding option for CAN, CAN-FD and CAN-ISO for design verification, putting into operation and debugging automotive buses.Visitors can also see their new RTO2000 multidomain oscilloscope in action. They will be demonstrating how their RTO2000 equipped with compliance test option for BroadR-Reach can perform automated tests on automotive Ethernet interfaces in line with the OPEN Alliance SIG standard. This oscilloscope can be synchronized with the BroadR-Reach system clock. In conjunction with their RTO oscilloscope’s unique high definition (HD) mode, this compliance test delivers highly accurate and conclusive results. For analyzing automotive network applications, they also offers a new eye diagram option for their ZNB and ZNBT vector network analyzers. These displayed eye diagrams make it possible to simultaneously and comprehensively analyze the signal integrity of automotive wiring systems in the time and frequency domain.Also on display will be the new Scope Rider, the first oscilloscope with isolated inputs in a handheld format that delivers the functionality and user experience of a modern lab oscilloscope. This oscilloscope packs five test instruments into a compact format. Its robust design makes it perfect for mobile installation and maintenance work. And it also offers the performance needed for lab applications.Rohde & Schwarz will present these and other test solutions from May 31 to June 2, 2016 at Automotive Testing Expo 2016 in Stuttgart (hall 1, booth 1458).
As promised by Ducati for their 2018 World Premiere, they have pulled the covers off their 2018 Ducati 959 Panigale Corse. This very special version Ducati middleweight superbike comes with a host of different upgrades to further elevate the style as well as substance of the 959.The first major highlight of the 2018 Ducati 959 Panigale Corse is the paint works. The livery taken from the manufacturer’s MotoGP machine (minus all the sponsors’ stickers) compliments all the lines and overall shape of the 959. Beneath all the new makeup hides a number of updates that’ll excite any Ducati fan.The latest 959 Panigale has caught the ‘gold fever’ thanks to a set of Ohlins all-round suspension package which comprises of a front Ohlins NIX30 43mm forks and a rear Ohlins TTX36 shock. To further improve the overall riding experience, the 949 Panigale Corse also comes with an Ohlins adjustable steering damper.Our favourite upgrade of course is the new Akrapovic titanium exhaust which unfortunately is just a slip-on. Still, it’s a welcomed change compared to the stock option which has brought mixed feelings in the design department. It would have been nicer if there pipes were slightly shorter but we can’t argue with the exhaust gods from Akrapovic.The new 959 Panigale Corse is also lighter compared to the stock model with a difference of around 2.5kg thanks to the Akrapovic slip-on plus a lithium-ion battery. This in turn improves the overall power-to-weight ratio with the 959 Panigale pushing out a respectable 157hp at 10,500rpm and 107Nm of maximum torque at 9,000rpm from its 955cc Superquadro: L-twin cylinder, 4-valve per cylinder, Desmodromic, liquid cooled engine.Standard electronic features are still available such as Riding Modes, Power Modes, DQS (Ducati Quick Shifter), Ride-by-Wire, DDA+ Ready (Data Analyzer), ABS, DTC (Ducati Traction Control), EBC (Engine Brake Control) to name a few.While we’re not sure on the pricing just yet, we’re confident that it’ll surpass the RM100,000 mark as the standard version is on sale in Malaysia at RM99,999 (basic price with GST).

The 2018 Ducati 959 Panigale Corse is one of the bikes introduced earlier today during the 2018 Ducati World Premiere.The 959 Panigale Corse features all-round Ohlins suspension package, MotoGP-inspired livery and a beautiful titanium Akrapovic slip-on exhaust.While there’s no news on the pricing, we’re sure that it’ll be slightly above the RM100,000 mark once it reaches here in Malaysia. –Ads–

Comeaux scored four touchdowns off five turnovers against Slidell and Eddie Flugence rushed for 163 yards on 33 carries. Airline is looking for is second quarterfinal appearance in the last three years. The Vikings have reached the quarterfinals twice in Bo Meeks’ tenure as head coach.

Both had 5-1 district records. Hahnville defeated East St. John 21-0 in Week 5, the Wildcats’ last loss. Spartans quarterback Tre’ Harris is a Louisiana Tech commit, something he shares with Haughton receiver CJ McWilliams. He threw a couple of TD passes. Young rushed for 152 yards on 13 carries. Johnson had 88 on 12. Kevin Pouncy caught six passes for 64 yards and scored on an end around. Smith had three receptions for 58 yards. Haughton downed No. 22 Ouachita Parish 28-7 in the first round. Comeaux upset No. 6 Slidell 42-14. While East St. John is officially 7-4, the Wildcats have the same record as Airline on the field. East St. John forfeited its first three games, including two victories, after self-reporting the use of an ineligible player. Airline’s talented secondary, which had four interceptions against Southside, will be tested. Shelby attempted 36 passes against Central, completing 15 for 347 yards and four touchdowns. Jamal Johnson and Rovelle Young had some big runs and some big holes to run through. Airline was dominant on both sides of the ball against Southside. The offensive and defensive lines more than did their part. McWilliams and quarterback Peyton Stovall returned to action against Ouachita Parish after missing the previous two games with injuries. Stovall basically missed three games after hurting his ankle very early in Week 7 against Captain Shreve. Airline (9-2), the No. 8 seed, travels to Reserve to face No. 24 East St. John (7-4) in a second-round game. Haughton (9-2), the No. 11 seed, heads to Lafayette to play No. 26 Comeaux (6-5). The Airline Vikings and Haughton Buccaneers will try to punch their tickets to the Class 5A quarterfinals tonight. Comeaux’s upset of Slidell was the Spartans’ first playoff victory in 10 years. Quarterback Alex Garcia gained 73 yards and scored two rushing touchdowns in the second half. He also completed 10 of 18 passes, including a touchdown to Daniel Smith. According to The Advocate, Comeaux only has 40 players on its roster. The school’s enrollment was adversely affected by the opening of Southside in Youngsville in 2017. In last week’s win, Sean Shelby completed a 67-yard touchdown pass to Markel August for the go-ahead score with 2:04 left in the game.
Road Running It was only last month that Ajit Muttu-Cumaraswamy became the oldest competitor in Port Moresby Road Runners’ history when he completed the 2.8-kilometre event at POM Grammar. Ajit had just turned 80 years old and graduated from the extreme-veteran (70 to 79 years) to uber-veteran (80 to 89 years) category. Ajit thus set an uber-veteran record that day, and the Sri Lankan legend, a long-time PNG resident, has since gone on to set uber-veteran records for the Burn’s Peak Christmas Crawl and at Ela Beach, Lego Land, Apec House and Murray Barracks. He was the hot favourite to claim another record at the University of PNG last Saturday. Alas, in this Land of the Unexpected, another uber-veteran strode into town. It was none other than the father of Road Runners’ leading female athlete, Deidre Derworiz. Ed Derworiz tips the scales at 84 years of age. He hails from Canmore, near Calgary (home of the 1988 Winter Olympics), Alberta, Canada, which on Saturday had a maximum temperature of minus 2 degrees Celsius. Ed has never been to PNG before and hardly experienced anything in his long life similar to what he faced on Saturday. It was 33 degrees and the humidity was out of scale, the sun was shining brilliantly and unlike the previous Saturday there was no hint of rain. People from Alberta are renowned for their super-toughness and resilience. So Ed Derworiz ran true to pedigree in tackling the 2.8-kilometre event and claiming first place and the uber-veteran course record in 32 minutes and 28 seconds. Ajit was second in 52.40 and contributed to another record: the largest number of uber-veterans to take part in a Road Runners event. Most of their comrades in the short race were juniors (under the age of 16). It was a sight to behold, and a fine inspiration, for the Pikininis, and all those present, to see those two mighty Lapuns strutting their stuff. Peto Elijah won the race outright in 12.22, after out-manoeuvring Gideon Hanun (12.55) and Henry Heaoa (12.56) in the final stages. The leading female was Theresa Titus who ran like a tigress in 15.25 to out-point Salome James 18.18, Glenda Yuwi 19.21, Priscilla Aitsi 19.23, Martha Jacob 20.05, Nancy John 20.06, Maria Andrew 20.22, Vivian John 20.48, Rose Henry 25.02, Gabriella Heaoa 25.02, and Deidre Derworiz (accompanying her Dad) 32.28. In the 5.7-km event Joseph Michael was going toe-to-toe with Joshua John for the first lap through Fort Banner. But when it became clear that Joshua was setting himself for another lap, Joseph pulled up, winning the race in 25.21 from Jackson Weingye 29.20, Jamie Loho and Eddie Joe (both 30.59), Ben Jackson 31.16 and John Ulelu 31.38. Falyn Buda was the leading and only female in 32.24, finishing ahead of Jacob Sailas 33.05, Michael Robert 34.11, Paulus Opus 43.15 and Vincent Ong 44.39. Joshua John, aged 13, ran the longest distance of his life when he won the 11.4-km event in 57.05 from Buda “the Brave” Awowari in 63.57 and Henry “Hagar” Horou in 72.21. Next Saturday at 5pm Road Runners will be back at one of their favourite venues, Port Moresby Grammar School, for the annual Mike Joyce Memorial Run. Runners and walkers of all ages, especially uber-veterans, are forever welcome.
The Sunday Times say Abramovich is ready to sell A look at the stories in Sunday’s newspapers involving the area’s clubs…Fulham’s Ryan Sessegnon continues to be linked with other clubs.The Sunday Express, which has repeatedly linked Sessegnon with Manchester United, say the Old Trafford club are lining up a bid for him in January.AdChoices广告Tottenham have shown an interest in Sessegnon and Liverpool have been linked with him.The Sunday Express declare that United “are set to snatch him from under their noses to make a point” because the club wants “to prove that they can still be a force in the transfer market” following recent criticism of their lack of signings.Fulham have consistently insisted that Sessegnon, 18, is not for sale. Reports earlier this year suggested Abramovich rejected a £2bn bid from Ineos chemicals tycoon Sir Jim Ratcliffe.Chelsea insisted that the Russian had no plans to sell, despite speculation that he could do so following issues with his UK visa.But the Sunday Times believe Ratcliffe’s bid was rejected because Abramovich was holding out for a bigger offer.The Sun on Sunday say Monaco want to sign Ruben Loftus-Cheek on loan before next week’s deadline despite Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri insisting the midfielder will be staying at Stamford Bridge.And Chelsea’s Tammy Abraham is set to reject a loan move to Aston Villa, the Sunday Mirror reports. Meanwhile, the Sunday Times say Roman Abramovich is planning to sell Chelsea.The newspaper claim Abramovich has rejected an approach from Silver Lake Partners, a United States-based private equity firm which is said to have wanted to buy a minority stake in the club.According to the Sunday Times, Abramovich’s advisers are understood to have hired a specialist investment bank to help with a strategic review and he is looking into the possibility of a multi-billion-pound sale.
