Conformal Coating Inspection with extended Inspection Scope
24 October 2014 – The S3088 Conformal Coating Inspection (CCI) system inspects protective conformal coating quickly, with full reliability. Viscom now offers this inspection step with an extended inspection scope. The system can now be equipped with angled cameras for reliable inspection between components. A wet inspection that checks the conformal coating for flaws before complete curing also is available. Viscom will demonstrate the S3088 CCI system in booth A1.217 at electronica, scheduled to take place Nov. 11-14, 2014 at the Messe Mϋnchen.
Remote PXI Express Control through PC
24 October 2014 - ADLINK Technology announced the new PCIe-PXIe-8638 high performance PXI Express remote controller, enabling remote control of any PXI Express system directly via PC. Fully software- and driver-transparent bandwidth up to 4 GB/s is available through PCIe Gen 2 x8 link capability. With the PCIe-PXIe-8638, processor performance is maximized for industrial PC, server, or workstation, delivering dependable remote control of the PXI/PXIe system, and maximum flexibility and reduced hybrid test application costs.
HBM acquired FiberSensing
23 October 2014 - Hottinger Baldwin Messtechnik (HBM) has announced the acquisition of FiberSensing – Sistemas Avancados de Monitorizacao S.A. (FiberSensing), a provider of Fiber Bragg Grating (FBG) based measurement and monitoring systems for critical physical assets, for an undisclosed sum.
Characterization of active Components up to 67 GHz
23 October 2014 - Characterizing active components such as amplifiers or combined transmit/receive (T/R) modules places high demands on the RF performance and flexibility of the test equipment used. The new R&S ZVAX-TRM extension unit from Rohde & Schwarz now enhances the test set of an R&S ZVA network analyzer to cover these complex measurements for applications up to 67 GHz. The R&S ZVAX-TRM conditions the stimulus and measured signals as required for a given task, enabling measurements at high power levels as well as pulsed signal or group delay measurements.
Free XCP Reference Book
22 October 2014 – The second edition of the technical reference book “XCP – The Standard Protocol for ECU Development” is now available from Vector. In the new edition, the authors have addressed new topics such as the use of CAN FD as a transport layer. The XCP reference book can be ordered free-of-charge from the Vector website – in printed form or in various digital versions.
4 Channel 20 GHz USB Sampling Oscilloscope
22 October 2014 - With the new PicoScope 9341 20 GHz Sampling Oscilloscope, engineers can analyze two differential or four single-ended high-speed signals. The instrument is ideal for measuring skew and crosstalk between differential pairs on serial buses such as HDMI, SATA and PCIe, and for testing signal integrity at differential and single-ended transceiver ports. Data rates up to 40 Gb/s can be viewed, with 5th-harmonic characterization possible up to 8 Gb/s.
Frost & Sullivan: Proliferation of Wireless Technologies Stokes Demand for RF Electronic Test Equipment
21 October 2014 – Telecom operators’ increased adoption of wireless technology for mission-critical applications has revved up the global market for dynamic electronic general purpose (GP) test equipment. As the link between cloud networks and devices (mobile phones, tablets, notebooks) results in more complex devices under test (DUT), the need for radio frequency test equipment will only intensify.
