Test & Measurement
Entry-level scopes deliver professional-level measurements
The 200MHz, 4-channel models of the InfiniiVision 1000 X-Series oscilloscopes, have been introduced by Keysight to provide professional-level measurements and capabilities at an affordable price, including 4-wire Serial Peripheral Interface (SPI) decode and remote connection via local area networks (LANs).
Customised starter alternation testing systems
Specialist in high-performance dynamometer systems, SAKOR Technologies, has announced that it has designed and provided a dynamometer testing system to a major original equipment manufacturer (OEM) for testing starter/alternators for hybrid/electric vehicle (H/EV) applications.
Indoor 5G NR network experiment "a success"
As part of the 5G expert days at Rohde & Schwarz's headquarters in Munich, the host company, along with Anokiwave and iBwave, partnered to plan, implement and measure an indoor 5G NR network. The network was created on an experimental frequency license for mmWave at 26GHz.
Toolset bridges gap between lab and field testing on 5G NR devices
A 5G virtual drive testing (VDT) Toolset from Keysight Technologies is helping semiconductor supplier MediaTek to accelerate end-to-end data throughput performance validation of multimode 5G New Radio (NR) Devices. The toolset enables 5G chipset and device manufacturers to bridge the gap between lab and field testing.
Audio analyser upgraded with multiple features
Improved sine generator frequency stability, lower system residual distortion, single-ended, balanced analogue output and an optional ADC test mode which provides VBias, a common mode DC Bias are features of the APx555 B Series analyser from Audio Precision. It is part of their B Series APx audio analysers.
Companies partner to pursue 5G SAR testing
PCTEST Engineering Laboratory will conduct SAR (Specific Absorption Rate) testing of 5G devices using Anritsu’s Communication Test System MT8000A. The instrument will be used in PCTEST’s Columbia, MD, and San Jose, CA laboratories to emulate a 5G New Radio (NR) radio access network, providing mobile operators and device makers with an efficient means to conduct SAR testing, which is critical due to the imminent rollout of 5G NR t...
C-V2X chipsets validated in record time
Rohde & Schwarz and Autotalks have successfully tested Autotalks’ second generation chipset as the C-V2X UE with the R&S CMW100 communication tester. During the test, multiple test scenarios were verified for transmission and reception of C-V2X direct communications (PC5) based on 3GPP Release 14 using GNSS based synchronisation.
Data acquisition system eliminates second guessing
The DAQ970A Data Acquisition System from Keysight which offers engineers a more efficient way to fully characterise their product and deploy test solutions in just a few days is available at Farnell element14. The product, designed for engineers in R&D design verification and manufacturing, provides a path to design reliability without second guessing the measurements, learning or using complex programming languages or hiring new software eng...
Solving high-speed automotive testing challenges
A whitepaper has been published by FLIR Systems that discusses how new Infrared (IR) camera technologies are providing engineers and technicians with the tools they need to address the difficulties of high-speed automotive testing. Traditional forms of temperature measurement such as thermocouples are not practical for systems in motion.
Platform opens two routes to DDR4 testing
Engineers designing with Double Data Rate 4 (DDR4) memory devices can quickly deploy tests for shorts and opens on control, address and data lines with the boundary scan test (BST) tools of ASSET InterTech’s ScanWorks platform for fast test and programming.
