Bit Error Rate Tester

Keysight Technologies (Santa Rosa, CA) introduced the M8040A bit error rate tester (BERT) for testing PAM-4 and NRZ devices that operate up to 64 GBaud. Engineers in validation labs and R&D who characterize receivers on the physical layer for the next generation of data center interconnects can use the device for test setups and repeatable results. The pattern generator module provides built-in deemphasis, jitter injection, and an optional second channel. Users can select PAM-4 and NRZ in the user interface, eliminating the need for external combiners, cabling, and de-skew to provide PAM-4 signals. For best signal quality, remote heads reduce the distance to the device under test. For Free Info Visit http://info.hotims.com/61064-402

Friction Tester

Paul N. Gardner Co. (Pompano Beach, FL) offers a compact CFT friction tester that provides detailed information of the slip characteristics of packaging material. Surface slip is a key factor when printing, erecting, or filling packaging materials on an automatic line. The CFT measures both static and dynamic coefficients of friction. A sample of 2.5 × 2.5" with a weight acting over the entire surface area is moved over another sample at a given speed. Static and dynamic coefficients of friction (COF) are automatically calculated and displayed on-screen. Features include graphical representation of forces during test, and pre-loaded ISO/ASTM/TAPPI test methods. For Free Info Visit http://info.hotims.com/61064-404

Signal Analyzer

The MS2840A signal analyzer from Anritsu (Richardson, TX) features frequency coverage of 9 kHz to 44.5 GHz and close-in SSB phase noise performance. Frequency coverage can be extended to the millimeter wave (mmWave) range. The analyzer can conduct wideband and narrowband measurements on next-generation 4G/5G designs, micro wave and mmWave wireless backhaul, 79 GHz band automobile radar, satellite communications, and VHF/UHF Private Mobile Radio (PMR). The unit’s oscillator achieves phase noise performance of –123 dBc/Hz at 1 GHz measurement frequency, and 10 kHz offset frequency. For Free Info Visit http://info.hotims.com/61064-405

Products of Tomorrow: July 2016

The technologies NASA develops don’t just blast off into space. They also improve our lives here on Earth. Life-saving search-and-rescue tools, implantable medical devices, advances in commercial aircraft safety, increased accuracy in weather forecasting, and the miniature cameras in our cellphones are just some of the examples of NASA-developed technology used in products today.

Product of the Month

Stratasys, Eden Prairie, MN, introduced the J750 3D printer that produces full-color, multi-material prototypes and parts in a single 3D print without post-processing. Users can choose from more than 360,000 different color shades plus multiple material properties ranging from rigid, to flexible and opaque, to transparent. Prototypes such as tooling, molds, jigs, and fixtures can include an array of colors, materials, and material properties in the same part. The printer is supported with PolyJet Studio™ software that allows users to choose materials, optimize the build, and manage print queues. Assignment of colors, transparencies, and rigidity is accomplished via familiar design controls. Color textures can be loaded fully intact via VRML files imported from CAD tools. Featuring a large, six-material capacity, the printer keeps the most-used resins loaded for printing.
