1.6-Gbps Digital Module enabling Protocol-Aware SoC Testing
18 July 2014 – Advantest introduced a new T2000 1.6GDM digital module, designed to improve efficiency in testing system-on-chip (SoC) devices on the T2000 test platform. The 1.6-Gbit-per-second module incorporates a new feature called Functional Test Abstraction Plus (FTA+) to achieve protocol-aware testing, in which the tester communicates directly with the devices under test (DUTs) in each IC’s protocol language. A powerful EDA-Link, called FTA-Elink, connects the design simulator to the T2000 test platform directly.
Lead Resistance Calculator App eliminates Test Errors
18 July 2014 - Seaward offers a user friendly App to help PAT professionals carry out earth continuity testing efficiently and accurately. The new Lead Resistance Calculator App for android devices provides a fast and simple means of determining the acceptable resistance of appliance cables and leads, eliminating the need for test engineers to use look up tables or calculate resistance values manually.
High Voltage Differential Probes for Oscilloscopes
17 July 2014 - Teledyne LeCroy introduced the HVD High Voltage Differential probe series delivering high common-mode rejection ratio (CMRR) across a broad frequency range. The new HVD differential probes are safe, easy to use and ideally suited for a variety of power electronics measurements. The wide 1500Vp-p differential voltage range and large offset capability provides maximum flexibility for capturing gate drive and control signals floating on a 1000 Vdc bus. This performance combined with 1% DC and low frequency gain accuracy means the HVD differential probes enable high precision, high voltage measurements.
Wireless Test Set supports 4x4 True MIMO
17 July 2014 – Agilent announced that its EXM wireless test set now supports 4x4 True MIMO capability for WLAN design and validation, with up to four TRXs testing multiple-input, multiple-output antenna characteristics simultaneously. Other new features for the EXM include WLAN combined measurements that support transmitter beamforming test for device calibration testing, and independent source and analyzers for parallel receiver and transmitter testing to further speed up and optimize WLAN device manufacturing.
Electronic Loads with 150 to 6000 Watt for Battery Testing
16 July 2014 - The new EL97xx series of electronic loads available from INTEPRO SYSTEMS offers users a simple means to test or characterise individual battery cells or multi-cell stacks. Models are available with power ratings from 150 to 6,000W for use as simple front panel controlled bench test or repair instruments to components in complex, automated test and burn-in systems. Applications include repair of power supplies and equipment through to testing batteries used for high reliability UPS and data-protection systems.
Aeroflex introduces Analog and Digital Radio Test Set
16 July 2014— Aeroflex introduced the new 8800 Radio Test Set; a high performance, economical radio test system for Analog AM and FM; and Digital P25, DMR, dPMR, NXDN, and ARIB T98 technologies. The 8800 is equipped with a large touch-screen color display, and a new hybrid portable design that provides bench-level test features while maintaining the low weight, ruggedness, and 2.5 hour internal battery required for field testing. The 8800 offers a wide measurement range of -140 dBm to 500 W.
Five essential Instruments in a single Device
15 July 2014 – National Instruments (NI) announced VirtualBench, an all-in-one instrument that integrates a mixed-signal oscilloscope, function generator, digital multimeter, programmable DC power supply and digital I/O. Users interact with VirtualBench through software applications that run on PCs or iPads. The device provides the most common functionality affordably and opens up new possibilities for how engineers can use benchtop instruments.
