Amplicon’s Test and Measurement division has introduced the new Teledyne LeCroy WaveJet Touch; a high performance, low cost oscilloscope with a variety of debugging tools and flexible connectivity. The oscilloscopes come in either 350MHz or 500MHz bandwidth; as well as having an extremely small footprint for easy portability, they come with 2GS/s and 5Mpts long memory.
FLIR System’s latest thermal imaging product to be released in Europe is on sale at Conrad. The FLIR ONE crams thermography expertise and thermal imaging cameras that enhance perception and awareness into a pocket-sized format. Utilising a slim case which conveniently attaches to an iPhone 5 or 5s, FLIR ONE turns a smartphone into a powerful thermal infrared camera, giving the ability to “see” and measure minute temperature variances on the phone’s screen.
As debuggers can now provide extensive and often very effective graphics processing of huge amounts of data, could they replace oscilloscopes and logic analysers?

An electromagnetic field (EMF) radiation measurement system has been added to Anritsu’s Spectrum Master handheld MS271xE spectrum analysers and Cell Master MT8212E/MT8213E base station analysers. With the option installed and an Anritsu isotopic antenna attached, the analysers can be used by field technicians of government regulatory authorities and cellular operators to measure electromagnetic fields, ensuring wireless networks are in compliance with various national standards for personal safety.
Capacitive touch screens and zone triggering have arrived in the mainstream oscilloscope market. Keysight Technologies is offering its InfiniiVision 3000T X-Series digital storage and mixed signal oscilloscopes with intuitive graphical triggering capability. The scopes help engineers overcome usability and triggering challenges and improve their problem-solving capability and productivity.
From its Munich base Rohde & Schwarz will motor up the autobahn to the embedded world 2015 exhibition in Nuremberg bringing its complete and enhanced oscilloscope portfolio. The high definition mode increases the vertical resolution of the R&S RTO and R&S RTE digital oscilloscopes to up to 16 bits, a 256 fold improvement over the 8 bit resolution available in standard mode.
Keysight Technologies’ N9038A MXE EMI receiver is now available with a frequency range of 20 Hz to 3.6 GHz. An affordable pricing of this new option addresses the needs of commercial manufacturers that perform compliance testing in their own facilities and do not require measurements at higher frequencies.
Keysight Technologies introduced a complete compliance test application for systems using low-power double-data-rate 4 memory. The application gives engineers an efficient and quick way to characterise LPDDR4 designs. In addition to testing and validating designs to ensure compliance with the LPDDR4 JEDEC JESD209-1 standard, the application offers offline testing support for running signals from simulation tools like Keysight’s Advanced Design System.
GOEPEL electronics has developed specific model libraries for testing and programming of Intel Bay Trail processors, which are part of the Intel Atom family. The libraries called VarioTAP models allow flexible execution of processor emulation tests using the native debug port. Users are now able to use the processor as an instrument for hardware design validation of prototypes as well as programming of Flash devices.
Rohde & Schwarz is expanding its video tester family to enable electrical measurements of HDMI 2.0 6G sources: the R&S VT B2380 TMDS time domain analyser. The compact sub-sampling based option features a cost/benefit ratio and gives users the advantage of carrying out "plug and measure" electrical analysis.
