Market Research: Expansive Increase of Smartphone Use creates Need for Mobile Data Monitoring Solutions
07 April 2014 – Over the next five to ten years, data traffic is expected to increase exponentially due to the growing adoption of smartphones globally. This amplified volume of data will place considerable strain on the networks of communication service providers (SPs) and their information management systems, thereby stoking demand for mobile data monitoring systems.
Network Analyzer for Active Device Tests with 8.5 GHz
07 April 2014 – Agilent Technologies expanded its flexible PNA-X family of network analyzers with an 8.5 GHz model that more economically supports lower-frequency devices used in wireless communication applications (e.g., handsets, base stations, WLAN and other mobile communication devices). With low-noise amplifier tests there are typically multiple test stations, such as small signal gain/match, distortions and noise figure; the PNA-X integrates these test stations into one.
High-Volume Testing of Ultra-Fast SerDes Applications
04 April 2014 - Advantest Corporation introduced its newest digital channel card, the Pin Scale Serial Link (PSSL) card, for at-speed characterization and volume production of today’s high-speed semiconductors. PSSL is the fastest fully integrated automated test equipment (ATE) instrument on the market, capable of data rates up to 16 Gbps.
Ethernet Interface Verification with an Oscilloscope
04 April 2014 -The R&S RTO digital oscilloscope family of Rohde & Schwarz now features an automated compliance test solution for Ethernet interfaces. The new R&S RTO-K22 and R&S RTO-K23 Ethernet compliance options allow users to perform standard-compliant automated tests on 10/100/1000BASE-T and 10GBASE-T Ethernet interfaces. All compliance tests meet IEEE and ANSI Ethernet test specifications.
SEMI expects 2014 Fab Equipment Spending to Increase 20-30 Percent
03 April 2014 - The latest release of the SEMI World Fab Forecast reveals a 20 to 30 percent projected increase in fab equipment spending in 2014. The uptick to 30 percent depends on specific fab projects in the Europe/Mideast and Asia regions, as detailed in the report. For 2014, the report identified over 190 fab projects spending on construction and/or equipment and over such 250 projects in 2015 (including Discretes, LED, Analog and Logic fabs).
Digital Oscilloscope with optional Arbitrary Function Generator
03 April 2014 - RIGOL Technologies EU GmbH introduces the DS2000A-(S) series digital oscilloscope with a bandwidth from 70MHz to 300MHz. The specially designed analog front end delivers a lower noise floor and a wider vertical range (500 uV/div to 10 V/div) at full bandwidth.
CAMTEK announces Semiconductor Inspection and Metrology Platform
02 April 2014 – Camtek started the customer evaluation of its next generation Semiconductor Inspection and Metrology platform designed for the Advanced Packaging market. The new systems deliver unparalleled 2D and 3D inspection and metrology capabilities for wafers, both before and after testing, along the bumping process or after dicing.
