USB and LAN Power Sensors with widest Dynamic Range
20 October 2014 – Keysight Technologies introduced the U2040 X-Series wide dynamic range power sensors, consisting of four USB models for wireless and radar applications, and a dedicated LAN model for satellite testing. With the world’s widest dynamic range found in a power sensor and extremely high measurement speed, the U2040 X-Series makes fast, accurate and repeatable power measurements over a wide range of power levels, allowing engineers to improve productivity and lower cost of test.
PC-controlled VNAs with Coverage up to 40 GHz
20 October 2014 – Anritsu expands its ShockLine family of Vector Network Analyzers (VNAs) with the introduction of the MS46122A series. Incorporating Anritsu’s patented shock line VNA-on-a-chip technology, the MS46122A low-cost full-reversing 2-port VNAs are packaged in a very compact 1U chassis, and are optimized for ultra-cost-sensitive test applications in manufacturing, engineering, and education environments.
Advantest Opens VOICE 2015 Call for Papers
17 October 2014 – Advantest has issued a VOICE 2015 international call for papers focusing on innovative test solutions for system-on-chip (SoC) and memory semiconductor devices and handler solutions. VOICE, the annual Advantest Developer Conference, will include technical presentations, a partners’ expo, and interactive discussion sessions for users of the V93000 and T2000 SoC test platforms as well as Advantest memory testers, handlers and test cell solutions.
Background: This isn’t your Father’s JTAG anymore
Literally, IEEE Std. 1149.1 very well might have been your father’s JTAG, since it has been around since 1990. For now over 20 years, this standard has been in use throughout the world (BSDL wasn’t added until 1993). 1149.1 was revised in 2001 with only incremental improvements and no real major rewrites. That is until now. A new 1149.1-2013 and the upcoming release of IEEE Std. P1687, huge changes and unmistakable momentum are on the horizon promising to once again revolutionize the industry.
PXI Signal Analyzer with Swept and FFT Capabilities
16 October 2014 – Keysight Technologies announced industry’s first signal analyzer to provide swept and FFT-based capabilities in the PXI form factor. The Keysight M9290A CXA-m PXIe signal analyzer delivers fully specified performance up to 26.5 GHz and provides best-in-class specifications in key areas such as sensitivity and dynamic range.
USB-connected Mixed-Signal Oscilloscopes
15 October 2014 - The new PicoScope 3000D Series Mixed-Signal Oscilloscopes (MSOs) form a complete portable test system, with two or four analog channels and sixteen digital channels as well as a built-in arbitrary waveform generator. The PicoScope 3000D Series MSOs are available with analog bandwidths from 60 MHz to 200 MHz. Maximum digital input frequency is 100 MHz, equivalent to a data rate of 200 Mb/s (5 ns pulse width) on each channel.
Power Supplies with Tracking, Sequencing, and FuseLink Functionality
15 October 2014 - The R&S HMC804x power supplies developed by Rohde & Schwarz subsidiary HAMEG Instruments are equipped with one (R&S HMC8041), two (R&S HMC8042) or three (R&S HMC8043) channels. All models from this series deliver up to 100 W of power and are adjustable between 0 V and 32 V in steps of 1 mV. They also offer a range of attractive extra functions.
