SMU modules enhance parameter analyser performance
Two new source measure unit (SMU) modules for the Keithley 4200A-SCS Parameter Analyser that can perform low-current measurements even in the presence of high load capacitance due to long cables and complex test setups have been introduced by Tektronix.
Software plug-in hastens double pulse testing
Double pulse testing in less than a minute is now possible on the Tektronix AFG31000 arbitrary/function generator with the availability of a new software plugin. It saves significant time compared to alternative methods.
ECOC 2019: Oscilloscopes meet optical test challenges
Optical test innovation for data centre networking will be demonstrated by Tektronix at ECOC 2019 in Dublin (September 22-26. It is the largest optical communications exhibition and conference in Europe. Tektronix will be hosting industry experts from leading research and commercial companies to discuss the trends and opportunities for emerging optical communications designs.
A new approach to oscilloscope analysis
Debugging embedded systems often involves looking for clues that are hard to discover just by looking at one domain at a time. The ability to look at time and frequency domains simultaneously can offer important insights. Lee Morgan of Tektronix explains further.
Automotive Ethernet testing simplified with new software
Tektronix has released two software packages that greatly simplify Automotive Ethernet testing, debug and Protocol Decode for use with its 5 and 6 Series mixed signal oscilloscopes (MSO). Using the new Signal Separation software, automotive engineers can now perform Automotive Ethernet testing without disrupting the ECU system or cutting the Ethernet cable to install a directional coupler.
13GHz and 16GHz models extend oscilloscope family
Two oscilloscopes offering 13GHz and 16GHz frequency have been added to Tektronix’s scalable DPO70000SX Series Performance Oscilloscope series. The new offerings allow engineers to take advantage of the high sample rate and low noise floor of Tektronix’ highest performance family of oscilloscopes at lower bandwidth levels and more affordable price points.
Tektronix supports university lab with T&M equipment
Royal Holloway, University of London, has officially opened its new Beatrice Shilling Building which includes state-of-the-art teaching laboratories in partnership with Tektronix and Rapid Electronics, the UK-based distributor of educational test equipment.
Upgraded oscilloscopes can "transform" market
“So,” asked Tektronix of a cross section of engineers, “what do you want from a next generation, mid-market oscilloscope?” What they asked for Tektronix reckons it has delivered with the 3 Series Mixed Domain Oscilloscope (MDO) and 4 Series Mixed-signal oscilloscope (MSO).
Tektronix names Newcombe as President
In a management reshuffle Tami Newcombe has been promoted to President of Tektronix, and Marc Tremblay who was named that role earlier this year is instead becoming President of Fluke. Both companies are owned by Fortive. Newcombe joined Tektronix in early 2017 as Commercial President and has been responsible for leading global sales and marketing.
