Ultra fast Flying Probe Tester for big PCBs with 16 Test Heads
29 June 2015 - atg Luther & Maelzer releaseds the flying probe tester A8-16a, which combines the speed of the 16 probe system A8-16 with the automation of the A7a. The A8-16a addresses the test and productivity requirements of big or complex server boards or production panels up to 24.4” x 24.0” with huge test point numbers.
Decode and analyze TCG Security and PTM Messaging
26 June 2015 – Teledyne LeCroy has extended the decoding and analysis capabilities on their PCI Express Summit protocol analyzer product family to support the new Trusted Computing Group (TCG) security and Precision Time Measurement (PTM) messaging features, utilized in Internet of Things (IoT) and PCIe SSD storage technologies.
Up to 500 Times faster Spurious Search with Vector Network Analyzer
25 June 2015 – Keysight announced a new capability that adds a high-performance spectrum analyzer to its PNA and PNA-X Series microwave vector network analyzers (VNAs). This industry-first capability reduces test times by a factor of 10 to 500 times. Incorporating this functionality into a VNA simplifies system connections and saves time by putting high-speed spurious measurements in the instrument used to characterize S-parameters, compression and distortion in satellite equipment, defense electronics and commercial wireless devices.
WCDMA Network Test System emulates up to 24 Cells
24 June 2015 – Cobham Wireless has announced the latest version of the TM500 WCDMA network test system, with expanded capability to emulate four cells and hundreds of mobile terminals from a single benchtop unit. Combining six TM500 units into a rack-mount cabinet enables the network operator or infrastructure vendor to validate real data applications usage on a WCDMA network of 24 cells – supporting thousands of terminals – in a controlled laboratory environment.
Teradyne acquires Pioneer of Collaborative Robots
23 June 2015 - Teradyne announced that it will acquire privately held company Universal Robots, a Danish pioneer of collaborative robots, for $285 million net of cash acquired plus $65 million if certain performance targets are met extending through 2018. The acquisition has been approved by the Board of Directors of each company and is expected to close in the second quarter of 2015 subject to customary closing conditions and regulatory approval.
Radio Communication Analyzer supports LTE-Advanced Testing
23 June 2015 – Anritsu launched the new Radio Communication Analyzer MT8821C for research and development testing of mobile devices (User Equipment, UE). As well as supporting LTE-Advanced, the all-in-one MT8821C operates as network simulator supporting LTE, W-CDMA/HSPA, GSM/GPRS/EGPRS, TD-SCDMA/HSPA, and CDMA2000 1X/1x EVDO technologies to run RF TRX tests in compliance with the 3GPP and 3GPP2 standards, as well as parametric tests.
3D AOI for small-batch Production
22 June 2015 - GOEPEL electronics launched a stand-alone AOI system with 3D measurement module. BasicLine•3D allows shadow-free, three-dimensional inspection of printed circuit boards in small and medium-sized batches. Thanks to the innovative measurement technology, the AOI system with manual loading is given an enhancement to the orthogonal camera and rotating angled-view module.
