23 March 2016 – Keysight Technologies announced the N1092A, N1092B and N1092D DCA-M sampling oscilloscopes, which are ideal for 25/100/400 Gb/s optical test. Networks of 100 and 400 Gb/s rely on multiple-lane transmitters based on 25 Gb/s class lasers. As these technologies become mainstream and transition to high-volume manufacturing, there is a growing need for test systems that provide high accuracy at a low cost.
18 March 2016 – Tektronix announced that it will be previewing its new IsoVu technology at the APEC 2016 show that will offer complete galvanic isolation between a device under test (DUT) and an oscilloscope through the use of electro-optical sensors. It will be the industry’s first measurement solution capable of accurately resolving high bandwidth differential signals in the presence of large common mode voltage. The technology will also offer immunity to external interference and radiated emissions, minimizing the impact of EMI on measurements.
16 March 2016 – Keysight Technologies introduced the N2839A differential browser head for use with InfiniiMax I/II Series probe amps, bringing the measurement fidelity of a solder-in probe head to hand-held browsing. When used with the InfiniiMax II 1169A probe amplifier, the N2839A gives users 12 GHz of bandwidth, making this a practical hand-held browser solution for measuring high-speed differential or single-ended signals.
15 March 2016 – Tektronix introduced the P7700 series of TriMode probes for use with Tektronix performance oscilloscopes. Offering up to 20 GHz bandwidth, the new probes ease the challenges designers face when debugging circuits found in the latest mobile and enterprise designs by minimizing probe loading, improving access to smaller, more-densely packed test locations and lowering overall cost of ownership.
08 March 2016 - Keysight Technologies introduced the industry’s first compliance test software application for hybrid memory cube (HMC) device and system testing. The Keysight N8839A HMC test application helps memory design engineers accelerate turn-on and debug of HMC systems by automating the execution of transmitter physical-layer tests on Keysight Infiniium V-Series and Z-Series oscilloscopes.
04 March 2016 -The MSO1000Z Series is the new economic level Digital Oscilloscope from Rigol and features powerful trigger functions and broad analysis capabilities. The MSO1000Z 4 channel oscilloscopes come in 70 or 100 MHz versions with a 7 inch display and Rigol's UltraVision technology and a 16 bit digital input port for mixed signal applications. A host of options are available such as analysis, decoding, deep memory, and integrated 2 channel waveform generator.
03 March 2016 - Qingdao Hantek launched the HANTEK6000BX PC based oscilloscope series. The series features 4 independent analog channels, 1GSa/s real-time sampling rate, 2mV-10V/DIV input sensitivity, and 250MHz bandwidth. The plug and play device is powered by a USB2.0 Interface and offers pass/fail tests, advanced trigger functions, dynamic cursor tracking, waveform record and replay functions.
02 March 2016 – Keysight Technologies announced a technological breakthrough for building the world’s highest-bandwidth oscilloscopes with the successful turn-on of chipsets based on Keysight’s Indium Phosphide (InP) semiconductor technology. The new chipsets will enable Keysight to deliver real-time and equivalent-time oscilloscopes in 2017 that offer bandwidths greater than 100 GHz with significantly better noise floors than what is currently on the market.
01 March 2016 - Embedded multimedia cards (eMMC) are inexpensive internal storage media that are mainly used in mobile electronic devices in the consumer and industrial sectors. With new compliance test software for the R&S RTO oscilloscope family, Rohde & Schwarz now covers automated conformity tests for eMMC interfaces. R&S ScopeSuite, the central application for the control of all compliance tests, also offers new capabilities for integration and regression testing.
26 February 2016 - Rigol offers options for CAN, LIN and FlexRay Bus Decoding for its mid range oscilloscope series DS/MSO4000. CAN Bus and LIN Bus are the most implemented bus systems at motor vehicles. While the CAN Bus is used for secure, important functions, the LIN Bus is used at low risk, low security functions as for example integrations within the door or the seat region.
