Top 5 test and measurement in January
Electronic Specifier takes a look at the top test and measurement products to have been released in January 2023.
Simulator shifts Hungary’s automotive engineering sector to a higher gear
Bay Zoltán Research Centre, Hungary’s largest applied research institute at the ZalaZONE automotive R&D park offers researchers, engineers and organisations access to a Delta series S3 DIL simulator. Ansible Motion dynamic driving simulator is key element of a project to place Hungary at the centre of European automotive engineering and development.
For the first time, open access to driver-in-the-loop (DIL) simulators is now available at the Bay Zoltán Research Centre in Hungary. Part of the expanding ZalaZONE automotive R&D park, it is the latest facility to acquire Ansible Motion’s Delta series S3 simulator. Alongside Bay Zoltán’s own growing number of research projects, external engineers and companies working on autonomous, human factors, driver assistance, vehicle dynamics, V2X, motorsports and electrification technologies now have flexible access to a high fidelity DIL simulator laboratory of a level that has previously been reserved for vehicle manufacturers and the largest Tier One suppliers.

Hamamatsu Photonic’s subminature new detector
Hamamatsu Photonic have developed a new InAsSb photovoltaic detector (P16702-011MN) with built-in preamplifier offering high sensitivity to mid-infrared light, up to 11μm in wavelength. We achieved this by combining the latest InAsSb (indium arsenide antimonide) mid-infrared models with our unique circuit design technology. Compared to our previous modules with same level of sensitivity, the P16702-011MN size and cost is drastically reduced, and it exhibits fast response time. This makes it an ideal choice for portable gas analysers able to immediately analyse exhaust gas components at measurement sites around factories. (Read more)
Anritsu Field Master Pro wins Fierce Innovation Award
Anritsu announces that its Field Master Pro MS2090A real-time spectrum analyser has been named the winner in the Network Test & Measurement category Fierce Innovation Award – Telecom Edition 2022.
The Field Master Pro MS2090A was recognised by a panel of judges based on criteria that included the instrument’s ability to make a positive, innovative, real-world impact on the telecom industry.
The Fierce Innovation Awards seek to recognise the creators, makers, and doers of outstanding services and equipment unveiled in the past 12 months. It is intended to promote the competitive spirit and initiative to spark new design, development and distribution of inventive solutions; find revolutionary tech or services; and to acknowledge and honour the most visionary operators, service providers, and vendors for their commitment to next-gen business and consumer offerings.

Pickering Interfaces announces three-pronged approach to obsolescence avoidance
Modular signal switching and simulation company offers and supports more than 1000 PXI and LXI modules, protecting clients from obsolescence.
Pickering Interfaces have announced the company’s formal approach to protecting customers from one of the most expensive challenges test engineers face when maintaining automated test equipment (ATE) – obsolescence.
“Mission-critical products with long lifecycles have components that need to be tested decades after they were manufactured and their initial test systems were designed,” said Keith Moore, CEO of Pickering. “When instrumentation providers discontinue components in those test systems – these companies, often in aerospace/defence, railway transportation, or power, are left stranded, trying to find a replacement or facing an imminent and costly test system redesign.” (Read more)
Partnership offers scalable HIL testing for CV3-AD domain controller SoCs
Ambarella, an Edge AI semiconductor company, and Applied Intuition, a software solutions provider for autonomous vehicle (AV) development, have announced at CES 2023 a partnership to offer a joint ADAS and AV development solution based on Ambarella’s CV3-AD PCIe hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) card and Applied’s simulation software.
Testing with real electronic control units (ECUs) is often costly and time-consuming, requiring special HIL rigs and a dedicated lab. This delays software testing and slows down development cycles. (Read more)
