PXI power relay switches voltages up to 480VAC or 300VDC
A new high-power relay PXI module that provides what is claimed to be the industry’s highest switching capacity in the smallest footprint for a solution based on electromechanical relays has been unveiled by Pickering Interfaces.
5G base station test solution speeds mmWave validation
Keysight Technologies has unveiled a new high-performance 5G base station test solution, based on its S9130A 5G Performance Multi-Band Vector Transceiver (VXT), that enables network equipment manufacturers (NEMs) and small cell vendors to accelerate validation of mmWave products according to the latest 3GPP specifications.
How to use a clamp meter to measure inrush current
Inrush current effect is common in electric motors. Sometimes, in case of ill-designed electrical wiring systems, switching on the motor may activate the fuse. It is caused by the inrush current - when the motor starts, it takes the current much higher than the regular operating current or than the motor which is in a stable working mode. TME explain more.
CANoe Test Package EV simplifies charging conformance
Vector has expanded its E-Mobility Testing Solution to include the new CANoe Test Package EV. This provides users with a toolchain for the automated conformance and interoperability testing of e-vehicles based on CANoe for the first time.
1 GHz analysis bandwidth enhances mid-range analyser
Rohde & Schwarz has added an internal analysis bandwidth of up to 1 GHz to its R&S FSVA3000 mid-range signal and spectrum analyser.
Improved Anritsu 5G mmWave OTA test environment
Anritsu has launched its newly developed DUT Holder MA8179A-AK011 to increase the usability of its CATR Anechoic Chamber, the MA8172A 5G mmWave OTA test environment. The MA8179A-AK011 is a compact jig that allows the MA8172A to support the DUT (Device Under Test, eg smartphone or tablet), in the positions and orientations specified by the 3GPP Alignment Option 1/2/3.
WS Fast series wavelength meter for fast dynamics
The recently launched WS Fast Series offers accuracy combined with maximum data acquisition rate of up to 76kHz, allowing fast dynamics in the kHz range to be directly observed. Different measurement modes enable the user to record or view the frequency behaviour of the light source.
Full availability of Percepio's Tracealyzer version 4.4
After extensive public beta testing, Percepio has announced the immediate availability of Tracealyzer version 4.4 with new support for embedded Linux. Percepio Tracealyzer gives a new level of insight during software debugging and verification at system level by enabling visual top-down exploratory analysis.
