50 GHz PXIe Vector Signal Analyzer
11 November 2015 – Keysight Technologies introduced a 50 GHz frequency extension to the M9393A PXIe performance vector signal analyzer (VSA), providing frequency coverage previously unseen in modular instrumentation. With coverage of Ka-band frequencies and beyond, the M9393A delivers Keysight’s proven millimeter wave (mmWave) measurement technology in a PXI form factor for manufacturing and design validation of modems, transponders and sub-components for commercial and military satellite communications.
Testing Cable and Filter Transmission Properties
10 November 2015 – Anritsu introduces a scalar transmission option for its MS46121A PC-controlled ShockLine 1-port USB Vector Network Analyzers (VNAs) that transforms multiple MS46121A models into a simple scalar system. This new option enables scalar measurements to be made between MS46121A VNAs in either a one-to-one (1 to 1) or one-to-many (1 to n) configuration, creating a flexible and affordable method of conducting magnitude-only transmission measurements for a wide variety of applications, including manufacturing test and student education.
60 MHz Arbitrary Function Generator with two Channels
10 November 2015 - Tektronix expanded the FG1000 series of Arbitrary Function Generators with the AFG1062. The instrument features two equally capable channels, 60 MHz bandwidth with 1mVpp to 10Vpp output amplitude, 14-bit vertical resolution and 1µHz frequency resolution. It provides a 300 MS/s sample rate along with 1M points record length and USB memory expansion for user-defined waveforms.
Programmable Triple-Output DC Power Supplies with isolated Outputs
09 November 2015 - B&K Precision introduced a new programmable triple output DC power supply, the 9129B. The new linear power supply features three isolated outputs that can be adjusted independently or combined in series or parallel to output higher voltage or current. The 9129B provides two channels with variable voltage and current up to 30 V/3 A and a third variable channel rated for 5 V/3 A. With a compact 19" half-rack form factor and fully programmable outputs, the 9129B is offered at an economical price point.
Modular Top Down AOI
06 November 2015 - Mek (Marantz Business Electronics), has recently launched new additions to its SpectorBOX AOI systems. These include a massive 5 inch camera clearance that enables complete single pass inspection of virtually any assembly. The Mek SpectorBOX modular AOI systems have long been optimized for the inspection of THT components to identify defects such as presence/absence, wrong polarity, color, type, and bent pins. And now, the unique top clearance of 130mm (5.12”) allows the Top-Down SpectorBOX to inspect virtually any completed electronic and electro-mechanical assembly - even when the tallest of components are present.
Ultra-Wide Bandwidth 5G Backhaul Signal Analysis
05 November 2015 – Tektronix announced the implementation of SignalVu software on its family of DPO70000SX ATI Performance Oscilloscopes. This will allow researchers and others engaged in developing next generation wide- and ultra-wide bandwidth technologies such as 5G, cellular backhaul and radar to perform RF modulation measurements with unprecedented margins of error.
Full-surface 3D X-ray Inspection
05 November 2015 – Viscom presents on produtronica in Munich/Germany the new 3D AXI system X7058 which was specially developed for an ultra-fast, in-line 3D X-ray inspection of electronic assemblies. With this system, the entire electronic assembly is 100 percent 3D-inspected. The new system is of particular interest for EMS companies which need to produce and inspect complex, high-value electronic assemblies at the highest quality efficiently and at low cost.
