12 April 2017 - TiePie engineering announced that Version 1.36 of the Multi Channel oscilloscope software is now available for download. A demo version is also available, which can be used without connecting measuring instruments. For automotive purposes a Crankshaft angle I/O was added. In modern engines, usually a crankshaft sensor is present which generates a periodic signal with a number of cycles per revolution of the engine.
12 April 2017 – Teledyne LeCroy introduces the WaveSurfer 510 oscilloscope, providing 1 GHz bandwidth and 10 GS/s sample rate simultaneously on all 4 channels at a price of $12,900. The WaveSurfer 510 combines the MAUI with OneTouch user interface with powerful waveform processing, in addition to advanced math, measurement, and debug tools, to quickly analyze and find the root cause of problems. The 12.1" touch-screen display of the WaveSurfer 510 is the largest in its class and makes viewing waveform abnormalities fast and easy.
10 April 2017 - SIGLENT’s new SDS1000X-E Series Super Phosphor Oscilloscope is available in one bandwidth, 200 MHz. It has a maximum sample rate of 1 GSa/s and a standard record length of 14 Mpts. For ease-of-use, the most commonly used functions can be accessed with its user-friendly front panel design.
06 April 2017 - Automotive Ethernet has established itself as a standard communications structure. All major manufacturers now depend on this cost-efficient solution for fast data transmission in motor vehicles. With the new IEEE 1000Base-T1 standard, the success story continues. Rohde & Schwarz is the first T&M equipment manufacturer to offer a 1000Base-T1 compliance test solution for the R&S RTO digital oscilloscope.
04 April 2017 - Teledyne LeCroy introduces the HDO4000A, HDO6000A, HDO8000A, and MDA800A analog and mixed-signal oscilloscopes. These four high-definition oscilloscope product lines range from 200 MHz – 1 GHz bandwidth and utilize 12-bit HD4096 technology. This technology arrived in 2012 and today’s announcement takes these ground-breaking products to new levels of measurement capability. HDO-A oscilloscopes now automatically ensure optimal display of acquired waveforms to the instruments’ full rated bandwidth.
03 April 2017 - Pico Technology announced the opening of its new office in Shanghai, China to give a local presence for its APAC (Asia-Pacific) sales and support. This expansion also sees the introduction of an APAC team, headed by Sui Li, Vice President, Asia-Pacific Sales.
30 March 2017 - Measuring fast data signals, e.g. on SuperSpeed USB or PCIe-2.0 interfaces, requires an oscilloscope that can acquire and analyze data rates up to 5 Gbit/s and suitable probes. The new R&S RT-ZM modular broadband probe system from Rohde & Schwarz ensures that optimum contact is made with the DUT. It provides a high dynamic range and, depending on the tip and test mode, an extremely low input capacitance of 32 femtofarad to 521 femtofarad up into the GHz range. As a result, the test signal is exposed to minimal load and distortion from the probe tip. The R&S RT-ZM system consists of the R&S RT ZM15/30/60/90 amplifier modules with 1.5 GHz to 9 GHz bandwidth plus various swappable R&S RT-ZMA tips and tip modules.
28 March 2017 - Pico Technology has increased the bandwidth of its PicoScope 9300 family of Sampling Oscilloscopes with two new 25 GHz models. The USB-controlled Sampling Oscilloscope, available only from Pico, stands as one of very few low-cost, high-integrity options for viewing and measuring RF and microwave signals, paths and networks. Sampling Oscilloscopes are the cost-effective solution to today’s proliferation of gigabit-per-second datastreams and their copper, wireless and optical fiber interconnect.
27 March 2017 - The new test options for the R&S RTO2000 series oscilloscopes of Rohde & Schwarz with a bandwidth of 6 GHz make these instruments ideal for testing fast communications interfaces. The new options support the 5 Gbit/s SuperSpeed USB and PCI Express (PCIe) 2.0 interfaces. There is also a new solution for USB power delivery (USB-PD).
24 March 2017 - Pico Technology launched the TA325 and TA326 flex current probes, which use Rogowski coil technology to measure AC currents up to 3000 A. Clamp-on current probes or “current clamps” enable you to measure currents without breaking the electrical circuit. Current clamps are designed with jaws that can be opened, placed around the conductor and clamped shut to form a magnetic loop around the conductor.
