04 July 2016 - Tektronix announced a series of enhancements to its suite of PCI Express (PCIe) test solutions including support for the 16 GT/s data rate and the industry’s first automated transmitter and receiver test solutions supporting the PCIe 4.0 architecture. With the faster data rates for PCIe 4.0 technology come new test challenges such as major increases in channel loss, tightening of the total jitter budget and more complex link training and timing requirements.
27 June 2016 - Teledyne LeCroy expands the Serial Data Analysis capabilities for its oscilloscope solutions by introducing as first oscilloscope manufacturer Eye Diagram capabilities in the new TDME Serial Bus options. Eye parameters can be used to quantify system performance and apply a standard or custom mask to identify anomalies. Mask failures can be indicated and can force the scope into Stop mode.
24 June 2016 - Hantek released the first iPad WIFI oscilloscope iDSO1070 Series in China. It supports multi-touch operation, WIFI connection (or USB connection), WIFI Direct connection and via router. A build-in lithium battery allows operation during 4 hours without external power and floating measurement. It can connect iPad and iPhone at the same time. When operating on iPad, it can also be observed on iPhone. Good mechanical design with small size which is convenient for traveling. The outer case is made of anodized Aluminium.
20 June 2016 - Tiepie's Handyscope HS5-540 has a true form CDS generator capable of generating high fidelity signals up to 40 MHz. The Arbitrary waveform generator sampling frequency is adjustable up to 240 MHz. A 64 MSamples waveform buffer allows for many user applications. The Handyscope HS5-540 Arbitrary waveform generator features a typical spurious distortion below -85 dB at 100 kHz signal frequency. No other Arbitrary waveform generator in its class can match this.
15 June 2016 - Keysight Technologies announced that Allion Labs, Inc., an international electronics certification laboratory, has successfully adopted Keysight’s high-speed digital measurement solutions to offer certification testing services for the new Thunderbolt 3 hosts (motherboards, notebooks, add-on cards, all-in-one systems) and devices. As a result, Allion is now an Intel authorized certification lab for Thunderbolt 3 technologies.
10 June 2016 - In July 2016 Pico Technology will celebrate 25 years of business. Pico data loggers, oscilloscopes and signal generators are used by engineers, scientists and technicians around the globe to bring their products to market. Pico automotive diagnostics products help keep the wheels turning for vehicle manufacturers and service organizations on every continent.
01 June 2016 - Siglent Technologies launched the new SDS1000DL+ and the SDS1000CML+ series of digital oscilloscopes. Both series are available in 50 MHz, 70 MHz, 100 MHz and 150 MHz bandwidth models. Compared to the older SDS1000DL/CML families, the new + models have added several features such as higher screen resolution and a standard LAN interface.
26 May 2016 - Tektronix is enabling serial bus test support for 4th generation standards including USB3.1, Thunderbolt over USB Type-C, PCIe Gen4 and DDR4 on the DPO70000SX Series. This new oscilloscope family offers incredible signal fidelity enabling precise margin analysis on 4th generation serial data rates beyond 10Gb/sec.
23 May 2016 - Keysight Technologies, announced an E-band Signal Analysis Reference Solution to provide low-cost millimeter wave analysis capability for applications in the 60-90 GHz range. The reference solution is based around the 10-bit ADC Infiniium S-Series oscilloscope to provide 2.5 GHz of high-fidelity, millimeter wave frequency analysis bandwidth.
12 May 2016 - Keysight Technologies introduced the U7243B USB 3.1 transmitter performance validation and compliance test software for the USB 3.1 Type-C specification. The test software allows authorized test centers to test USB 3.1 Gen2 SuperSpeed Plus 10 Gbps devices with Type-C implementations and gives in-house test and performance validation engineers the tools to ensure devices comply with the USB 3.1 Gen2 Type-C specification.
