PXIT Modules

Agilent Technologies Inc. (Santa Clara, CA) offers PXIT modules for optical transceiver manufacturing. The modules have a combined bit error ratio tester (BERT) and digital communication analyzer (DCA). The flexible modular platform allows optical transceiver manufacturers to combine key instruments needed to perform required measurements in one mainframe via the same interface. The PXIT modules come in four versions: the N2100B PXIT 8.5 Gb/s digital communications analyzer, the N2101B PXIT 10.7 Gb/s bit error ratio tester, the N2102B PXIT 11.1 Gb/s pattern generator, and the N2099A PXIT synthesizer.

Consumer Products Category Winner, "Create the Future" 2007 Design Contest

Winner of an HP Workstation LED Cocoon Tent LED strips are sewn into the tent seams, and the light is turned on and off with a small button inside the tent, or remotely.Stephen Boynton Orem, UT Outdoor camping tents have used the zipper as the solution to opening and closing the tent since the zipper was invented. Even before the zipper was applied, campers used candles, lanterns, flashlights, and finally headlamps to give visibility to the dark shadows of a tent interior. The LED Cocoon Tent is a solution to the issues of jammed, snagged, worn out zippers and low visibility inside a tent at night.
