Keysight-Infiniium 90000X26 November 2014 – Keysight Technologies introduced transmitter (TX) test support for the USB 3.1 specification with the U7243B USB 3.1 transmitter performance validation and compliance test software. The test software allows authorized test centers to certify SuperSpeed USB and SuperSpeed USB 10-Gbps devices and gives in-house test and performance validation engineers the tools to ensure their devices comply with the USB 3.1 specification. The test software operates on Keysight’s 90000 X-, Q- and Z-Series Infiniium real-time oscilloscopes with bandwidths of 16 GHz and higher. Access to the test signals through a USB test fixture is required.

NI-5171R25 November 2014 - National Instruments introduced with the NI PXIe-5171R a reconfigurable oscilloscope with eight calibrated analog input channels, 250 MHz bandwidth, 250 MS/s sample rate, and 14-bit resolution. The PXIe-5171R is a general-purpose module that features a user-programmable FPGA for inline signal processing, protocol decoding, and advanced trigger schemes without dead time.

Rigol-DS1000Z24 November 2014 – Rigol Technologies EU announced the expansion of their DS1000Z Mid-Range Digital Oscilloscope series with a 50 MHz version with a large 7” screen. The DS1054Z version incorporates most of Rigol’s breakthrough technologies and delivers superior performance and functions. The new model was mainly designed for first-time-users and also for education, technical schools and universities as well as teaching labs, test and physics labs.

Keysight-N7020A21 November 2014 – Keysight Technologies introduced the industry’s highest bandwidth and lowest noise oscilloscope probe for making power integrity measurements to characterize DC power rails. The new Keysight N7020A power-rail probe specifications are tailored for a wide variety of DC power-rail measurements. Probe specifications include very low noise, a large ± 24-V offset range and 2-GHz bandwidth.

RS-RTO20 November 2014 - MIPI D-PHY is becoming an established data interface for cameras and screens in smartphones and tablets. Its high data rate of 1.5 Gbit/s is increasing the importance of signal integrity in assembly design and component selection. Rohde & Schwarz has expanded the functional range of its R&S RTO high performance oscilloscopes to include automated MIPI D-PHY compliance tests to ensure seamless interaction between components made by different manufacturers.

Pico-RPi-Driver19 November 2014 - Pico Technology has just released beta drivers for its oscilloscope and data logging devices to run on the ARM-based BeagleBone Black and Raspberry Pi development boards. The new drivers give programmers access to a wide range of compact, economical USB oscilloscopes and data loggers. These include high-speed oscilloscopes with bandwidths up to 500 MHz, high-resolution 12-bit and 16-bit oscilloscopes, and deep-memory oscilloscopes with buffer sizes up to 512 MS.

Yokogawa-Passive-Probe-70290218 November 2014 - The 10:1 passive oscilloscope probes Model 702902 and 702906 from Yokogawa operate over a wide temperature range from -40°̊C to +85̊C. They are ideally suited to use in accelerated testing and validation methods where temperature cycling is part of the test procedure. The 702902 is designed for use with the isolated BNC input modules of Yokogawa's DL850E ScopeCorder family, whereas the 702906 is intended to be used with the non-isolated BNC inputs of the Yokogawa DLM4000 and DLM2000 Series of oscilloscopes.

Tektronix-MSO7000017 November 2014 - Tektronix announced the first physical layer transmitter characterization and debug solution for the MIPI M-PHY v3.1 specification recently approved by the MIPI Alliance. The new Tektronix solution includes support for MIPI M-PHY High Speed Gears 1, 2 and 3, PWM Mode (G0-G7), and SYS Mode and offers the industry’s lowest noise solution for MIPI M-PHY measurements when used with Tektronix MSO/DPO 70000DX oscilloscopes and P7600 series probes.

Keysight InfiniiVision 4000x13 November 2014 – Keysight Technologies introduced CAN FD (controller area network with flexible data-rate) and SENT (single-edge nibble transmission) decoding and triggering options for its InfiniiVision 4000 X-Series oscilloscopes. The new capabilities improve engineers’ efficiency in debugging CAN FD and SENT serial buses, which are used primarily in automotive applications.

Keysight-N2804A12 November 2014 – Keysight Technologies introduced 200-, 300- and 500-MHz, high-voltage probing solutions with a wider input range, higher common-mode rejection ratio and optimized accessories. The probes are ideal for testing today’s switching power supplies or power devices and for measuring motor drives and vehicle buses. The Keysight N2804A differential probe offers up to 300-MHz bandwidth and ±300-Vdc + peak AC of the maximum differential input range, allowing engineers to use it for a broad range of power applications.
