Scope Module for 10- to 32-Gb/s Designs

The 86108B Precision Waveform Analyzer is a new plug-in module for the company’s 86100C/D DCA wide-bandwidth oscilloscope family used in design verification and validation of high-speed electrical communications systems and components. It offers residual jitter below 50 fs, channel bandwidths to 50 GHz, and integrated clock recovery to 32 Gb/s.

Continuous data-rate coverage from 50 Mb/s to 32 Gb/s, peaking control, and adjustable loop bandwidths to 20 MHz also allow the clock recovery circuit to provide a golden PLL response for compliant device characterization. An integrated instrumentation-grade clock recovery circuit enables the module to trigger directly from single-ended or differential data signals, eliminating the need for a separate trigger input. The module also integrates high-bandwidth pickoffs and phase-matched cables, which reduce setup complexity and maintain signal integrity. From $80,000.

High-Power Modules

Seven new high-power modules for the company’s N6700 Modular Power System expand the ability of test-system integrators and R&D engineers to deliver multiple channels of high power (up to 500 W) to devices under test. The new modules, together with the 27 modules already offered, compose a family ranging in power from 18 W to 500 W at four different performance levels: basic, high-performance, precision, and source/measure unit. R&D engineers and test-system integrators can mix and match any of these 34 modules in any of the four MPS mainframes (three for automated test and one for R&D) to create a DC power system. Systems can be from one to four outputs. From $1,000 per output.

40-GHz Bandwidth Socket

The SM-BGA-9006 high-performance BGA socket product line employs an elastomer capable of high-speed, low-inductance, high-endurance, and wide temperature applications. The SM-BGA-9006 is designed for a 16 x 16-mm package size and operates at bandwidths up to 40 GHz with less than 1-dB insertion loss. The contact resistance typically is 15 mW per pin.

The socket connects all pins with 40-GHz bandwidth and mounts on the target PCB with no soldering. It is constructed with a shoulder screw and a swivel lid that incorporates a quick insertion method so ICs can be changed out quickly. The temperature range is -55°C to +150°C. The pin self-inductance is 0.10 nH, and mutual inductance is 0.007 nH. Capacitance to ground is 0.069 pF. Current capacity is 4 A per pin. From $1,727 for a quantity of one.

JTAG Hardware for Mass-Interconnect System

The PXI 1149/DAK Mass-Interconnect Interface for the SCANFLEX JTAG/boundary-scan hardware platform is an option for the SFX/PXI1149/Cx Controller compatible with Scout, the mass-interconnect system from MAC Panel. Using this option, the customer now can  combine JTAG/boundary-scan with the PXI connectivity solution from MAC Panel.

The new module is available in two versions. As an option for the SFX/PXI1149/Cx-FXT and SFX/PXIe1149/Cx-FXT controller, the PXI 1149/DAK2 has a differential test bus with a 200-pin receiver and single-ended PIP resources. The PXI 1149/DAK1 has a single-ended test bus with a 96-pin receiver as well as single-ended PIP resources and is an option for the SFX/PXI1149/Cx and SFX/PXIe1149/Cx controller. Each mass-interconnect interface also is available as a variant supporting the PXI 1149/DAK-E1 and PXI 1149/DAK-E2 Direct Access Kit-Extended versions.

Embedded Vision System

The EOS-1200 Gigabit PoE Embedded Vision System incorporates the 2nd generation Intel Core™ i7 Quad-Core Processor. The system provides four independent Gigabit PoE (power over Ethernet) ports with data transfer rates up to 4.0 Gb/s. It supports IEEE 1588 precision time protocol, enabling multicamera synchronized image acquisition via a software trigger mode. Combining IEEE 1588 and PoE capabilities allows a single Ethernet cable to deliver power supply, data transfer, and data synchronization, reducing cabling requirements while decreasing maintenance burdens and total cost of ownership. Users can program power status to boost energy efficiency when cameras are idle. The system also provides autodetection to ensure compatibility with both PoE and conventional nonPoE devices.

The EOS-1200 features four serial ports, two USB 3.0 ports, 32 PNP/NPN isolated digital I/Os, two SATA interfaces, and one CFAST slot.  Driver support is provided for Windows 7/XP and Embedded standard 7 in both 32-bit and 64-bit versions. From $1,885.

Vision System With Line-Scan Cameras

The XG-8000 Vision System now is available with a new family of line-scan camera models, a high-speed triple-core processor, and multi-camera connectivity offering simultaneous operation of up to eight cameras. The triple-core processor boosts production/inspection throughput over conventional vision systems, providing high-load processing of data from 5-megapixel area-scan and 8k line-scan cameras (capable of capturing 67-megapixel images).

Visual LED indicators built into the company’s line-scan cameras display received-light intensities and image sharpness, simplifying the normally difficult and time-consuming setup process. A new human-machine interface touch panel is optional.


Web-Based Sensor System

The zSeries Wireless Sensor System provides web-based monitoring of temperature, humidity, and barometric pressure in critical applications. The compact, wireless end devices mount on the wall in cleanrooms, laboratories, or any remote facility and transmit up to 300 feet (without obstructions) to a coordinator device connected directly to an Ethernet network and the Internet.

The wireless system complies with IEEE 802.15.4 operating at 2.4 GHz. No special software is required, and the device can trigger an alarm if variables go above or below a user-determined set point. A selection of end devices accommodates a variety of applications. Each device supports one or two sensors, and the devices are available with built-in sensors, external sensor probes, and both built-in and external sensors.
