The former vice president of signal generators, audio analyzers, and power meters at Rohde & Schwarz is taking a top role at the test equipment maker.
On Monday, the company announced that Andreas Pauly would be the new executive vice president of its test and measurement unit. For decades, the company's bread-and-butter has been wireless and electromagnetic compatibility tools, like signal generators and spectrum analyzers.
Pauly will replace Roland Steffen, who led the test equipment unit for the last fourteen years. Steffen, who spent 40 years at the 84-year-old company based in Munich, Germany, is credited with ushering Rohde & Schwarz into the market for oscilloscopes and other conventional tools.
Pauly, 47, started at the company as a software engineer in 1996. Rohde & Schwarz, which also sells test equipment for broadcast media and secure communications, is now emphasizing tools for testing 5G networks and systems that let cars chat with each other wirelessly.
