RF contact probe targets high-speed data connectors

The new P819 from Peak Test Services is a spring contact probe specifically designed for contacting HSD (high-speed data) connectors in RF applications. The probe is equipped with a calyx spring for optimised guiding of the probe onto the connector. The conical insertion configuration of the circular contact and the position of the calyx spring provide an optimum set-up for maximising the capture area and minimising damage to the probe or the connector.

Power logger captures parameters across three phases

Power logger captures parameters across three phases
A Three-Phase Power Logger, the 1736 from Fluke is now in stock at distributor Farnell element14. It automatically captures and logs voltage, current, power, harmonics and nearly 500 other power quality parameters across three phases, to its product portfolio. It optimises system operations and minimises uncertainty to allow engineers to make better and more thorough power quality and energy consumption decisions.

E-band option can lower test costs

E-band option can lower test costs
An E-band option for its ShockLine MS46500B series of 2- and 4-port performance Vector Network Analysers (VNAs) that addresses the market need to lower cost-of-test for E-band components has been introduced by Anritsu. With the option installed, the VNA series can reduce production costs and more efficiently verify the performance of high-frequency passive components, such as antennas, filters, and duplexers, during manufacturing.

Climate data measurement made easier

Climate data measurement made easier
Researchers in Germany have developed a battery-free internet sensor that is powered via a special solar cell for indoor use, enabling tens of thousands of connected mini-sensors to transmit measurement values directly to the internet via WLAN or GSM. This development will help to reduce cost and maintenance in applications such as museums, libraries and archives, where precision monitoring of temperature, humidity or air pressure is crucial.

Boundary scan test software enhances multi-core support

Version 3.4 of XJTAG’s Development System introduces major improvements in the visibility into complex systems during all phases of electronic product development and manufacture. As it becomes increasingly difficult to physically access the fine-pitch arrays of modern integrated devices, engineers must rely on alternative solutions to debugging and testing complex circuits.

AC power sources deliver up to 1500VA

AC power sources deliver up to 1500VA
The 9801 programmable AC power source offering from B&K Precision has been extended with the addition of two new high power AC sources, models 9803 and 9805. The new models can deliver up to 750 VA and 1500 VA respectively, and also measure AC voltage, current, and power parameters. Both sources can operate in a 0-300 V continuous sweep range or 150 V/300 V auto-switching range with adjustable start and stop phase angle control.

Mixed signal oscilloscopes offer bandwidth up to 300MHz

Mixed signal oscilloscopes offer bandwidth up to 300MHz
The R&S HMO1202 mixed signal oscilloscope from Rohde & Schwarz expands the R&S HMO1002 oscilloscope family that was introduced just last year. The instruments are ideal for use in the development of embedded designs and are tailored to the needs of users in research, education and service. The mixed signal oscilloscopes are able to analyse serial SPI buses on digital channels while simultaneously monitoring two analogue signals referenced to the transmitted SPI data.

Video inspection probe speeds optical fibre inspection

Video inspection probe speeds optical fibre inspection
A Video Inspection Probe (VIP) measurement mode for its Microwave Site Master S820E and Site Master S331L cable and antenna analysers has been introduced by Anritsu. The new VIP mode, a no-cost feature included with firmware revision V1.17 or higher, specifically addresses the ever-growing requirement to inspect optical fibre cables used to carry traffic data and signaling up/down to/from the radio hardware in modern wireless communication systems.
