The BoardMaster, from ABI Electronics, is a tester that gathers together 25+ measurement tools for multiple applications. Some of the tests can be carried out even without any power being applied to the DUT or PCB.
Micro-Measurements has doubled its Super Stock program offerings, with the off-the-shelf delivery program now offering users an even broader range of general-purpose foil strain sensors. Super Stock general-purpose patterns are available in linear, tee rosette, stacked rosette, rectangular rosette and shear/torque configurations.
Specialist equipment rental company TR Pty Ltd has been acquired by UK-based rental business Vp plc. Vp announced the purchase of the entire issued share capital of TR, committing to pay $17.4 million on completion of the acquisition, with an assumed net debt of $6.6 million.
When measuring the performance of waveguide components with a vector network analyser, non-idealities of any uncalibrated VNA introduce uncertainty in the measurement results.
Test departments are now turning to commercial off-the-shelf test management software to act as a Rosetta Stone of sorts between different languages. This software not only offers users a common environment in which they can work with any type of test code but also completes executive tasks, such as sequencing and calling each test, handling data logging and generating reports.
Mixed signal oscilloscopes have evolved over time to meet changing requirements. This article details some popular applications of the technology and provides measurement tips and tricks for getting the most out of mixed signal oscilloscopes.
Prodigit Electronics has announced the 3310F series programmable DC electronics loads. The electronics load module is designed to test, evaluate and burn-in for DC power supplies and batteries.
Rohde & Schwarz presents the R&S RTO2000, a compact lab oscilloscope for multidomain applications. When using it to check advanced embedded designs, developers are able to analyse how sophisticated functional units such as power supplies, the processor system and the sensor technology interact.
Anritsu addresses the market need for efficient manufacturing test solutions to verify IoT/M2M products with the introduction of software for its MT8870A Universal Wireless Test Set.
The R&S Scope Rider, from Rohde & Schwarz, is equally impressive in the lab and in the field. The portable oscilloscope features an acquisition rate of 50,000 waveforms/s, a 10-bit A/D converter and a maximum bandwidth of 500 MHz for the analog input channels.
The U1280 series of handheld digital multimeters, from Keysight Technologies, deliver measurements and logging capabilities to electrical engineers troubleshooting electronic circuits. With 60,000-count dual display resolution and 0.025% basic DCV accuracy, the handheld DMMs claim to provide precise measurements to users.
The AG051 and AG051F single-channel multifunction generators, from Owon, combine arbitrary waveform and function generation using advanced direct digital synthesiser (DDS) technology to provide stable, precise, low distortion signals at up to 5 MHz.
Micro-Measurements has expanded its line of transducer-class full-bridge strain gauges based on Advanced Sensors technology. Offering advantages over bonding multiple, individual strain gauges, the devices are now available with small, high-resistance patterns to serve a variety of bending and torque/shear applications.
The PIE 541 Frequency Calibrator with Totalizer is a portable, precision calibrating tool for the testing and diagnosing of frequency devices at any location. It can read a wide range of signal frequencies and waveforms from 50 mV to 120 V peak.
