Package Characterization at Cold Conditions
21 November 2014 - The Multitest MT2168 pick and place handler now offers the ability to characterize devices at cold conditions. This addresses the evolving requirements for temperature performance driven by applications in the end markets. Whereas final test of the respective devices in high volume production will only be done at ambient/hot, they need to get qualified for cold conditions before they ramp.
NI Collaborates with CROWD to define 5G Wireless Communications
21 November 2014 – National Instruments (NI) announced its collaboration with CROWD, the European Union Framework Project 7 (EU FP7), to define next-generation wireless 5G communications. CROWD researches the combination of small- and large-density cells in a heterogeneous wireless network for an efficient architecture in which small cells meet traffic hot-spot needs while large cells offer reliable coverage for high-mobility users.
Free Android App for Source Measure Unit (SMU) Instruments
20 November 2014 – Keithley Instruments has developed a free app for Android-based smartphones and tablets that interacts with a Keithley Series 2600B SourceMeter SMU instrument via its front panel USB interface. IVy, which is the industry's first app developed for SMU instruments, offers benchtop Series 2600B instrument users a fast, easy-to-use touchscreen tool for characterizing 2- and 3-terminal devices. By leveraging the power of smart mobile devices, IVy transforms the Series 2600B into a powerful instrument that enables users to visualize, interact, and share measurement results more efficiently.
Wireless Test Set supports LTE-A Category 7 Data Throughput
20 November 2014 – Keysight Technologies announced new functionality enhancements to the E7515A UXM wireless test set including support for LTE-A category 7 data throughput, expanded functional test capabilities, and in-depth RF performance verification using the industry standard X-Series measurement applications.
First GCF-approved WI-164 eMBMS Performance Test Case
19 November 2014 – Anritsu announced that the GCF, the certification body for the mobile phone industry, has validated its LTE eMBMS Band 4 and Band 13 RF conformance test cases. Anritsu is the world’s first test equipment supplier to gain validation for these Band4 and Band 13 RF conformance test cases.
Tabor Electronics enhances high-speed AWG Series
19 November 2014 – Tabor Electronics announced the WaveXciter C-series AWGs. The C-series models include the new and enhanced WX2181/2/4C, single, dual and four channel 2.3GS/s 14bit, and the new WX1281/2/4C 1.25GS/s 14bit, single, dual and four channels, all which were built on the previous award winning “A” and “B” series features and enhances further the instrument’s performance and usability.
Analysis of long Signal Sequences on Rohde & Schwarz Oscilloscopes
18 November 2014 - Equipped with the R&S RTM-K15 history and segmented memory option, the R&S RTM bench oscilloscope enables users to analyze longer signal sequences than is possible with any other instrument in this class. The R&S RTM automatically acquires only the relevant signal sequences, such as bursts or pulses, and stores them in segmented memory. The oscilloscope's full functionality can then be used to analyze the acquired signals in detail.
