ThinkRF, a leader in real-time spectrum analysis products, today announced the appointment of Jim Nerschook to the Board of Directors. Jim brings tremendous executive level experience in both start-up and public technology companies and will be advising ThinkRF on its move towards the emerging 5G test and analysis market.
“Next-generation 5G mobile is an incredible opportunity for ThinkRF, so we’re excited to have Jim join our board,” said Jim Roche, President and CEO. “As we continue to develop our wireless test and analysis solutions, Jim’s knowledge and expertise will be invaluable.”
This announcement follows the release of the ThinkRF R5500 Real-Time Spectrum Analyzer and the ThinkRF S240 Real-Time Spectrum Analysis software application, two important milestones in the development of the company’s product portfolio.

I’m confident that the company’s disruptive technology and capabilities position it well for this emerging market.”
