Pico-Picoscope02 December 2014 - Pico Technology improved its PicoScope 6 software for PC oscilloscopes and increased the continuous update rate to more than 100,000 waveforms per second. This is faster than any other PC oscilloscope, and beats many expensive benchtop oscilloscopes too.

Teledyne-WaveRunner-6Zi01 December 2014 — Teledyne LeCroy introduces the DDR Debug Toolkit for complete physical layer analysis of DDR 2/3/4 and LPDDR2/3 signals. Most oscilloscope-based DDR physical layer test tools on the market are targeted exclusively at JEDEC compliance testing, whereas the DDR Debug Toolkit provides test, debug and analysis tools for the entire DDR design cycle, making it the ultimate DDR analysis package. The DDR Debug Toolkit includes numerous, time saving industry firsts to simplify DDR testing.

Rigol-MSO-DS2000A28 November 2014 – Rigol Technologies EU has released a new PC Software, which enables users to perform standard measurements on switching power supplies. This software, in combination with Rigol oscilloscopes (series DS/MSO2000A, DS4000 or DS6000) allows customers to set up small test systems, which represent a reasonably priced alternative for measuring switching power supply parameters during the development phase.

Teledyne-WaveRunner-6Zi27 November 2014 – Teledyne LeCroy announced the addition of unique measurement and graphing capabilities to their CAN Flexible Data-Rate (FD) serial trigger and decode solution. The new CAN FD solution (CAN FD TDM) enables designers using this new standard to gain unprecedented insight in to their systems, correlating physical layer signals and protocol layer data on a single display while also measuring and plotting bus performance. These tools can be used to measure the time between two CAN or CAN FD messages, or from a message to an analog signal. These measurements can then be extracted to recreate analog waveforms.

Keysight-Infiniium 90000X26 November 2014 – Keysight Technologies introduced transmitter (TX) test support for the USB 3.1 specification with the U7243B USB 3.1 transmitter performance validation and compliance test software. The test software allows authorized test centers to certify SuperSpeed USB and SuperSpeed USB 10-Gbps devices and gives in-house test and performance validation engineers the tools to ensure their devices comply with the USB 3.1 specification. The test software operates on Keysight’s 90000 X-, Q- and Z-Series Infiniium real-time oscilloscopes with bandwidths of 16 GHz and higher. Access to the test signals through a USB test fixture is required.

NI-5171R25 November 2014 - National Instruments introduced with the NI PXIe-5171R a reconfigurable oscilloscope with eight calibrated analog input channels, 250 MHz bandwidth, 250 MS/s sample rate, and 14-bit resolution. The PXIe-5171R is a general-purpose module that features a user-programmable FPGA for inline signal processing, protocol decoding, and advanced trigger schemes without dead time.

Rigol-DS1000Z24 November 2014 – Rigol Technologies EU announced the expansion of their DS1000Z Mid-Range Digital Oscilloscope series with a 50 MHz version with a large 7” screen. The DS1054Z version incorporates most of Rigol’s breakthrough technologies and delivers superior performance and functions. The new model was mainly designed for first-time-users and also for education, technical schools and universities as well as teaching labs, test and physics labs.

Keysight-N7020A21 November 2014 – Keysight Technologies introduced the industry’s highest bandwidth and lowest noise oscilloscope probe for making power integrity measurements to characterize DC power rails. The new Keysight N7020A power-rail probe specifications are tailored for a wide variety of DC power-rail measurements. Probe specifications include very low noise, a large ± 24-V offset range and 2-GHz bandwidth.

RS-RTO20 November 2014 - MIPI D-PHY is becoming an established data interface for cameras and screens in smartphones and tablets. Its high data rate of 1.5 Gbit/s is increasing the importance of signal integrity in assembly design and component selection. Rohde & Schwarz has expanded the functional range of its R&S RTO high performance oscilloscopes to include automated MIPI D-PHY compliance tests to ensure seamless interaction between components made by different manufacturers.

Pico-RPi-Driver19 November 2014 - Pico Technology has just released beta drivers for its oscilloscope and data logging devices to run on the ARM-based BeagleBone Black and Raspberry Pi development boards. The new drivers give programmers access to a wide range of compact, economical USB oscilloscopes and data loggers. These include high-speed oscilloscopes with bandwidths up to 500 MHz, high-resolution 12-bit and 16-bit oscilloscopes, and deep-memory oscilloscopes with buffer sizes up to 512 MS.
