Digital Potentiometer

The iC-HL from iC-Haus GmbH is a 1,024-step logarithmic precision potentiometer used to set the optical output power of laser diodes in conjunction with APC laser drivers. iC-HL’s logarithmic characteristic curve provides continuous precision setup across a wide resistance range of 350 Ω to 80 kΩ. Resistance can be set using a new, wireless, optical programming interface based on the transmission of PWM coded light pulses straight into the laser monitor diode. Even assembled and encapsulated modules and those mounted in inaccessible places can be calibrated or have their output power adjusted. Transmission is protected against manipulation by encryption and CRC.

6-GHz NI USB-5680

National Instruments, Austin, TX, has introduced the 6-GHz NI USB-5680 USB-controlled RMS RF power meter for automated test, measurement, and monitoring in a small footprint. Powered solely from the USB cable, the meter consumes 100 mA of current without an external power supply. The meter combines both the sensor and the A/D converter in one package occupying less than 9.6 cubic inches, and connects directly to a USB port on any PC or PXI controller. It features a frequency range from 50 MHz to 6 GHz, dynamic range of 63 dB, and amplitude accuracy of ±0.18 dB. The meter comes with an executable soft front panel and software libraries for system set-up. It can be used in a standalone configuration with a VXI plugand- play-compatible executable soft front panel to facilitate interactive control. For Free Info
