Teledyne LeCroy, a subsidiary of Teledyne Technologies Inc., demonstrated the world's first 100 GHz real-time oscilloscope by successfully acquiring and displaying live signals at 100 GHz bandwidth. This demonstrated performance dramatically exceeds currently available capabilities. High speed oscilloscopes are vital tools in the development of high-speed digital networks, the critical backbone of the rapidly expanding cloud-based computing paradigm that characterizes our digital age.
Tektronix Inc. announced that lab testing has shown that its next generation performance oscilloscopes - due for availability in 2014 - will deliver real-time bandwidth of 70 GHz, with significant upside potential. The new oscilloscope platform will deliver the performance and signal fidelity needed for applications such as 400 Gbps and 1 Tbps optical communications and fourth generation serial data communications.
Rohde & Schwarz performs together with ASTRI a live test on a 2x2 MIMO base station in the uplink and downlink at the Mobile World Congress 2013. Hong Kong Applied Science and Technology Research Institute (ASTRI) provides an LTE-Advanced small cell as the device under test. What makes this demonstration special is that the 2x2 MIMO signal is generated and analyzed using only a single measuring instrument each.
Agilent Technologies Inc. introduced the industry’s lowest-priced USB 2.0 signal-quality test option. This option for the InfiniiVision 4000 X-Series oscilloscopes supports low-speed, full-speed and hi-speed USB applications. The USB interface is used extensively for computer applications and for a broad range of embedded connectivity applications.
New bandwidths, mixed-signal analysis and options for testing USB interfaces, CAN LIN buses and audio signals: Rohde & Schwarz significantly expanded its oscilloscope portfolio in 2012. At the embedded world 2013 trade fair in Nuremberg (hall 4, booth 112), the company will present its latest applications, two new probes and other state-of-the-art products.
Agilent Technologies Inc. introduced the groundbreaking InfiniiVision 4000 X-Series digital-storage and mixed-signal oscilloscopes. This new series establishes unprecedented levels of flexibility and ease of use among units that use an embedded operating system.
Today it is hard to imagine data exchange and instrument control without USB. No other interface has achieved such popularity for user equipment, electronic consumer goods and industrial products. As a result, the need for reliable, fast test solutions in development and integration has also increased. New software from Rohde & Schwarz makes the company's high-performance oscilloscope ideal for automated USB 2.0 compliance tests.
LeCroy Corp. announces the extension of its LabMaster 10 Zi product line to 65 GHz, from a previously-announced 60 GHz, and unveils a roadmap to provide 100 GHz of real-time bandwidth in the LabMaster 10 Zi platform. The improvement to 65 GHz is made possible by outstanding results achieved with 8HP SiGe chipsets. The world’s first 100 GHz real-time oscilloscope using LeCroy’s patented Digital Bandwidth Interleave™ (DBI) technology will be available in calendar year 2013.
Agilent announced the industry’s most advanced PC-based oscilloscope analysis software, which allows engineers to analyze previously captured signals from oscilloscopes made by Agilent and other vendors.
