E5063A: PCB Analyzer

February 3, 2014

E5063A PCB AnalyzerAgilent Technologies Inc. introduced the E5063A PCB Analyzer for printed circuit board impedance test in manufacturing. The solution offers technology breakthroughs in accuracy and repeatability and reproducibility (R&R). The analyzer also provides a dedicated user interface with broader language support, and more robustness against electrostatic discharge for PCB manufacturing environments.

Tighter impedance tolerance is a direct result of increasing data rates; more accurate impedance test solutions for PCB manufacturing is now required to achieve signal integrity. The E5063A PCB Analyzer meets that demand by providing advanced error-correction methods to enhance measurement accuracy and R&R. These enhancements help improve yield for PCB impedance test.

Option 011 in the E5063A PCB Analyzer now supports simplified and traditional Chinese, Japanese and Korean, providing easier access and operation in global installations.

The ESD protection circuit now available on the E5063A PCB Analyzer helps overcome the serious ESD damage that traditional PCB measurement solutions can encounter. The highly robust architecture of E5063A protects the instrument from ESD damage, minimizing downtime and repair.

“In addition to enhancements that go beyond traditional test solutions, we offer the solution at an affordable price,” said Akira Nukiyama, vice president and general manager, Agilent’s Component Test Division. “Continuous achievements in high-speed digital applications and uncompromising expertise in RF measurements enable us to achieve these breakthroughs with the E5063A PCB Analyzer.”
