100GHz test capabilities make debut at EuMW 2018
High volume testing of semiconductor devices up to 100GHz and beyond will be announced by Presto Engineering at European Microwave Week, in Madrid (23rd-28th September). Applications that use GHz frequencies, i.e. millimetre wavelengths (MMW), are increasing rapidly and thus driving the need for high volume device testing.
Oscilloscope probes boast bandwidths from 55MHz to 1.5GHz
The CT4200 series of passive voltage oscilloscope probes featuring compact 2.5 mm barrel size and bandwidths from 55 MHz to 1.5 GHz has been launched by Cal Test Electronics. The eight model series includes 1x, 10x, 20x, and 100x attenuation ratios.
The transference of technologies is putting T&M solutions in the spotlight
There’s a lot of talk about how the IoT is shaking things up in the industrial and consumer sectors, but disruption isn’t limited to these two areas, writes Sam Darwish, Sales Director, Microlease. In truth, consolidation and the cross-propagation of technologies is a common theme in the electronics sector and one that is the source of significant change.
Instrument tester can check PRCD automatically
