30 January 2014 – Agilent Technologies introduced the industry’s first software for decoding USB 3.0 SuperSpeed Inter-Chip (SSIC) and MIPI Camera Serial Interface 3 (CSI-3) protocols on oscilloscopes. The new protocol decoders provide design and validation engineers with a fast, easy way to validate and debug their SSIC and CSI-3 interfaces.
17 January 2014 - Pico Technology announced that it has become a member of the MathWorks Connections Program. The PicoScope 3000 Series oscilloscopes now have an instrument driver for the Instrument Control Toolbox. This includes all models apart from the Mixed Signal and Differential Oscilloscopes, with drivers for other product ranges to be provided in the future.
16 January 2014 – Agilent Technologies introduced two compliance test software packages for physical-layer testing of devices that use the new High-Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) 2.0 specification. The transmitter compliance test software allows engineers to use Agilent Infiniium oscilloscopes to test their HDMI 2.0 transmitters. Agilent’s receiver compliance software can be used with the company’s transition-minimized differential-signaling signal generator platform and the Agilent M8190A arbitrary waveform generator to test HDMI 2.0 receivers.
16 January 2014 - Yokogawa has combined its world-leading expertise in power measurement and its long heritage in oscilloscope design to create the world’s first Precision Power Scope: the PX8000.The PX8000 brings oscilloscope-style time-based measurement to the world of power measurement. It can capture voltage and current waveforms precisely, opening up applications and solutions for a huge variety of emerging power measurement problems.
14 January 2014 - B&K Precision announced its new 2510 Series handheld digital storage oscilloscopes (DSO). Four models make up this new line of dual-channel oscilloscopes that includes 60 MHz and 100 MHz bandwidth models in non-isolated and isolated designs. Suitable for general electronics, models 2511 and 2512 provide non-isolated 300 V CAT II rated inputs. For industrial applications, models 2515 and 2516 provide two fully isolated 1,000 V CAT II / 600 V CAT III rated inputs.
