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.

Yokogawa-Passive-Probe-70290218 November 2014 - The 10:1 passive oscilloscope probes Model 702902 and 702906 from Yokogawa operate over a wide temperature range from -40°̊C to +85̊C. They are ideally suited to use in accelerated testing and validation methods where temperature cycling is part of the test procedure. The 702902 is designed for use with the isolated BNC input modules of Yokogawa's DL850E ScopeCorder family, whereas the 702906 is intended to be used with the non-isolated BNC inputs of the Yokogawa DLM4000 and DLM2000 Series of oscilloscopes.

Tektronix-MSO7000017 November 2014 - Tektronix announced the first physical layer transmitter characterization and debug solution for the MIPI M-PHY v3.1 specification recently approved by the MIPI Alliance. The new Tektronix solution includes support for MIPI M-PHY High Speed Gears 1, 2 and 3, PWM Mode (G0-G7), and SYS Mode and offers the industry’s lowest noise solution for MIPI M-PHY measurements when used with Tektronix MSO/DPO 70000DX oscilloscopes and P7600 series probes.

Keysight InfiniiVision 4000x13 November 2014 – Keysight Technologies introduced CAN FD (controller area network with flexible data-rate) and SENT (single-edge nibble transmission) decoding and triggering options for its InfiniiVision 4000 X-Series oscilloscopes. The new capabilities improve engineers’ efficiency in debugging CAN FD and SENT serial buses, which are used primarily in automotive applications.

Keysight-N2804A12 November 2014 – Keysight Technologies introduced 200-, 300- and 500-MHz, high-voltage probing solutions with a wider input range, higher common-mode rejection ratio and optimized accessories. The probes are ideal for testing today’s switching power supplies or power devices and for measuring motor drives and vehicle buses. The Keysight N2804A differential probe offers up to 300-MHz bandwidth and ±300-Vdc + peak AC of the maximum differential input range, allowing engineers to use it for a broad range of power applications.

TLEC LabMaster111 November 2014 - Teledyne LeCroy introduces the LabMaster 10-100Zi featuring a real-time bandwidth of 100 GHz and a sample rate of 240 GS/s. The 100 GHz technology was first publicly demonstrated in July 2013, and has since been featured at the 2014 DesignCon, OFC and ECOC exhibitions. The technology included in the LabMaster 10-100Zi is key to analyzing and understanding the fastest phenomena found in R&D of next-generation communication systems, high bandwidth electrical components, and fundamental scientific research.

RS-RTM11 November 2014 - Equipped with the R&S RTM-K15 history and segmented memory option, the R&S RTM bench oscilloscope enables users to analyze longer signal sequences than is possible with any other instrument in this class. The R&S RTM automatically acquires only the relevant signal sequences, such as bursts or pulses, and stores them in segmented memory. The oscilloscope's full functionality can then be used to analyze the acquired signals in detail.

BitScope Micro and Raspberry Pi 207 November 2014 - element14 has partnered with BitScope Designs to manufacture and distribute BitScope Micro, a full feature dual channel digital oscilloscope for Raspberry Pi. BitScope Micro is also an eight channel logic analyser, waveform generator, clock generator and spectrum analyser all packaged in one low cost lightweight water resistant test probe. BitScope Micro captures digital signals at up to 40 MSps and has a 20 MHz analogue bandwidth.

RS-RTE07 November 2014 - With the high definition (HD) mode Rohde & Schwarz increases the vertical resolution of the R&S RTO and R&S RTE oscilloscopes to up to 16 bits - a 256-fold improvement over 8-bit resolution. Waveforms are sharper and show signal details that would otherwise be masked by noise. Users benefit from even more precise analysis results.
