12 Gb/s Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) Verification
15 August 2014 - Teledyne LeCroy has upgraded the SAS Verification suite to support Serial Attached SCSI 3.0 (12Gb/s) solid state drive (SSD) and hard disk drive (HDD) testing. Available as a software option for the Sierra M122/M124 protocol analyzer platform, the suite provides an automated, turnkey test application that allows storage developers to screen devices for conformance to the SAS 3.0 specification.
Analysis of DOCSIS 3.1 Signals
14 August 2014 - Rohde & Schwarz is the first company that offers a solution for analyzing DOCSIS 3.1 signals. Cable TV network operators and manufacturers of cable TV network components can use the R&S DSA DOCSIS snapshot analysis software and the R&S FSW high-end spectrum analyzer to carry out performance measurements. The software makes it possible to quickly and reliably characterize downstream signals of up to 192 MHz.
Handling Equipment for Clean Room Use
14 August 2014 - IPTE extends its material-handling portfolio with a version for the use in clean rooms according to the ISO/DIS 14644-1 Class ISO 5. The equipment includes modules for the efficient handling of products in manufacturing lines and assembly them according to customer requirements. The key targets for the design of the new handling and processing units program have been the highest of demands on the quality and reliability of this equipment. Strong focus was laid on the optimization and minimization of the footprint demands and quantity of generated particles.
Advanced Packaging Process Control
13 August 2014 - Rudolph Technologies announced its new SONUS Technology, designed for measuring thick films and film stacks used in copper pillar bumps and for detecting defects, such as voids, in through silicon vias (TSVs). SONUS Technology is a non-contact, non-destructive acoustic metrology and defect detection technique that is designed to be of higher resolution, faster, and less costly than alternative techniques.
Cost-efficient and compact Measurement System
13 August 2014 – National Instruments (NI) announced the CompactDAQ 4-slot controller. By integrating the processor, signal conditioning and I/O into a single CompactDAQ system, engineers and scientists can reduce overall system cost and complexity while increasing measurement accuracy. Integrated measurement systems reduce the number of components, connections and wiring needed, where noise and additional costs are often introduced, to ensure high-accuracy measurements and cost-optimized systems.
DOCSIS 3.1 Waveform Creator Software
12 August 2014 – Agilent Technologies / Keysight Technologies announced the M9099 Waveform Creator 2.0, providing new capabilities for engineers working on the development of radars, satellite communications, military radios and the next generation of DOCSIS 3.1 cable modems. Release 2.0 of the Waveform Creator software provides new waveform segment types that are easily combined into multiple tracks and can be aggregated into one composite waveform.
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.
