dSPACE tools support FMI 2.0
12 August 2014 - End of July the Modelica Association Project Functional Mock-up Interface (FMI) announced the release of the FMI standard 2.0. Three dSPACE products support the new FMI version: the PC-based platform VEOS, the hardware-in-the-loop simulator SCALEXIO, and the data management software SYNECT. FMI is an open, manufacturer-independent interface that lets the user integrate simulation models from different modeling tools into one overall model. The latest version of the standard brings with it new functions.
Programmable Power Supplies with precise Measurement Functions
11 August 2014 – Keithley Instruments introduced the Series 2280S Precision Measurement, Low Noise, Programmable DC Power Supplies. Unlike conventional power supplies, Series 2280S power supplies are also sensitive measurement instruments with the speed and dynamic range essential for measuring standby current loads and load current pulses. Typical applications include characterizing battery-powered devices, wireless sensors, RFID tags, intrinsically safe devices, and low power semiconductor devices.
Hitex signs distribution agreement with YOGITECH
11 August 2014 - Hitex Development Tools GmbH and the Italian company YOGITECH SPA have signed a distribution agreement. Under this agreement, Hitex will market the fRSTL (fault Robust Software Test Libraries) in Germany and other European countries. The focus is on the sales of self-test libraries for Cortex-M microcontrollers ensuring that the controller is running properly during runtime, which is a requirement for obtaining IEC 61508 certification.
NI enhances LabVIEW 2014 Software with new Capabilities
08 August 2014 – National Instruments (NI) announced LabVIEW 2014 system design software, the heart of the NI platform, featuring upgrades to help users acquire, analyze and visualize data sets to make informed decisions fast. In total the latest version of LabVIEW includes 13 user-driven features to optimize coding productivity.
Digital Radio Test Set for Motorola APX Series Radios
08 August 2014 - Aeroflex announced additional test and alignment capabilities for Motorola APX Series Radios on the Aeroflex 3920B Digital Radio Test Set. The new test capabilities focus on Phase II Transmit and Receive tests. The Aeroflex Automated Test and Alignment procedure provides fully automated test and alignment of Motorola APX radios without the need for user interaction.
New 75 Ohm Calibration Kit
07 August 2014 - Rosenberger introduced a high performance 75 Ohm calibration kit for applications up to 12 GHz. The calibration kit contains RPC-N open, short and broadband loads for measurements in N 75 Ohm applications. Additionally, high quality RPC-N 75 Ohm to BNC 75 Ohm adaptors enable measurements in BNC 75 Ohm applications: calibrate in RPC-N 75 Ohm series, connect the adaptor and measure in BNC 75 Ohm series.
100G Ethernet Compliance Test Applications
07 August 2014 – Agilent / Keyseight introduced the industry’s first compliance test applications for 100 Gigabit Ethernet networking systems. The Agilent N8830A 100GBASE-CR4, N8829A 100GBASE-KR4 and N8828A 40GBASE-CR4/100GBASE-CR10 test applications help network-design engineers accelerate turn-on and debugging of 100G Ethernet networking systems. The new applications automate the execution of physical-layer tests on Agilent Infiniium 90000 X-Series and 90000 Q-Series oscilloscopes and the new Z-Series oscilloscopes with up to 63-GHz bandwidth.
