3D-view microscope dispenses with screens and goggles
Described as a flagship product, the Deep Reality Viewer (DRV-Z1) microscope has been unveiled by Vision Engineering. Designed at its Woking, UK HQ, the DRV-Z1 enables the user to view high definition 3D images under magnification without using a flat screen, or requiring operators to wear goggles or specialist glasses.
Portable AWG allows signal-generation for up to 16 channels
The latest line of Arbitrary Waveform Generators (AWGs) from Spectrum Instrumentation is based on the LXI instrumentation standard and has been created for engineers and scientists that need to simultaneously generate up to 16 precise electronic signals. Small and compact, the units are ideal in automated testing or remote-control type applications.
Ethernet controller features faster test clock
Because of its expanded internal memory, a new Ethernet controller for ASSET InterTech’s ScanWorks platform can program larger data images and process test operations faster. The Remote Instrumentation Controller, designated the RIC-1400, is a direct replacement for the RIC-1000
Duo develop test solution for remote SIM provisioning of eSIMs
Rohde & Schwarz is collaborating with COMPRION to supply telecommunication solution providers with a method for testing remote SIM provisioning (RSP) of embedded UICCs (eSIMs) required for Industry 4.0 and connected car applications.
5G NR test cases validated by GCF and PTCRB
5G network emulation solutions from Keysight Technologies deliver a leading number of 5G new radio (NR) protocol conformance test cases validated by the Global Certification Forum (GCF) and PTCRB, a certification forum consisting of leading U.S. mobile operators.
DMM debuts an integrated thermal imager
The first digital multimeter (DMM) in its RS PRO product range to feature a built-in thermal imager has been released by RS Components. The RS-9889 thermal imaging multimeter allows engineers to identify thermal overload issues in electrical equipment from a safe distance, without the need for any physical contact.
Robotic laser system to accelerate automotive quality inspection
Engineers at the Warwick Manufacturing Group (WMG) at the University of Warwick have developed and installed a new, robotic measuring system, capable of accurately and repeatedly measuring large objects on the production line, such as car body-shells, in a fraction of the time traditionally taken to measure them on Co-ordinate Measuring Machines (CMMs).
Mixed signal scope tackles high speed signal analysis
Following its launch in the spring of this year, Rigol Technologies’ MSO8000 series is now fully available. With bandwidths from 600MHz, 1GHz and 2GHz (BW usable for 2 channel) and a maximum sampling rate of 10GS/s, the MSO8000 series is ideally suited for high speed and instantaneous signal acquisition and analysis.
Signal processing hardware in cellular network test system
CommAgility has announced that it is supporting VIAVI Solutions in their 5G TM500 network tester. The TM500 is a scalable test system for validating the performance of cellular networks, including 3GPP 4G, 4.5G, and 5G. The system tests network performance as experienced by end users, across multiple cells and different radio access technologies.
Vector signal generator helps accelerate IoT design
The CXG X-Series Radio Frequency Vector Signal Generator from Keysight Technologies delivers advanced performance, is standards-compliant, and has been developed to meet the demands of engineers designing IoT and general-purpose devices at a reasonable price.
