Introduction to the BILT/IVCAD Pulsed IV, Pulsed S-Parameter and Compact Transistor Modeling system that allows characterization and modeling of GaN FETs
Rigol Technologies Inc. introduces the new DSA815 spectrum analyzer, featuring all-digital IF technology. The DSA815 covers a frequency range of 9kHz to 1.5 GHz and features a compact design and easy-to-use interface.
Agilent Technologies introduces Infiniium 90000 Q-Series oscilloscopes with industry-leading, real-time bandwidth of 63 GHz on two channels and 33 GHz on four channels.
Jay Alexander, VP and GM of Oscilloscope Products Division, joined Agilent (formerly Hewlett-Packard) in 1986 as a Manufacturing and Test Engineer after working on robotics at IBM. Three years later he became Test Engineering Manager for oscilloscopes and logic analyzers. He later moved to oscilloscope R&D as a Software Development Engineer, where he worked on several projects including the design of the original Infiniium user interface. He subsequently served in various R&D management positions, where he played significant roles in establishing and growing the Infiniium, InfiniiVision, and Economy oscilloscope franchises, along with the application-specific solutions business for oscilloscopes. In addition to his R&D roles, Jay spent approximately 5 years in several strategy and marketing positions, including Division Planning Manager, Business Unit Marketing Manager, and Group Strategy and Architecture Manager. Jay earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Electrical Engineering from Northwestern University and a Master’s Degree in Computer Science from the University of Colorado. He is a licensed Professional Engineer and a Senior Member of IEEE, and holds 24 US patents.
