Washington — The Association of Old Crows (AOC) held its 60th annual convention in Washington during the week of December 11, 2023. EE World was there on December 12. Here is some of what we saw in the exhibit hall. AOC is a defense-oriented conference that focuses on military wireless communications. In addition to product […]
EE World gets its hands dirty on the latest Tektronix oscilloscope. So many features, so little time. When Tektronix gave the press a preview of the 4 Series B 12-bit mixed-signal oscilloscope and TekScope software, I asked to try the software. Days later, the real thing arrived in a transit case. Fortunately and unfortunately, today’s […]
An IEEE EMC Society chapter provided training on FCC Part 15, shielding effectiveness, and EMC art & science. Boxborough, Mass — Interference among electronic devices never goes away. Engineers who aren’t EMC experts seem to need constant introductions and reminders of how to reduce interference because every design is different. EMI/EMC issues keep popping up, […]
Test equipment plays a major role in product development and production, which was apparent at IMS 2023. In the photos and videos below, you’ll get a taste of test developments at RF, mmWave, and sub-THz frequencies. This year, D-band (110 GHz to 170 GHz) seized a larger portion of the exhibit hall than in past […]
Several test equipment companies demonstrated their latest products for attendees of the International Microwave Symposium.
The quantumdata M42d Video Analyzer and Generator is the industry’s first DisplayPort 2.0 protocol test instrument. The DisplayPort 2.0 standard provides for data rates up to 20 Gb/sec per lane for an overall aggregate bandwidth of 80 Gb/sec, going well beyond the DisplayPort 1.4 standard’s aggregate rate of 32.4 GB/sec. These data rates support high […]
A Tektronix MDO3104 oscilloscope is used to demonstrate the use of Automatic Measurements as a troubleshooting and design tool. Greetings and welcome to our 63rd Test and Measurement Video. Today we’ll look at taking automatic measurements in the time domain, using the Tektronix MDO 3104 oscilloscope. First, we’ll need a signal to measure. A Tektronix […]
A Survey of items appearing in the Tektronix 3000 Series oscilloscope frequency domain display. Greetings and welcome to our 62nd Test and Measurement video. We’ll be checking out an interesting topic: the items that appear in the frequency domain display of the amazing Tektronix MDO 3000 series oscilloscope. These items are separate and distinct from […]
The Wave Inspector is used to closely examine waveforms in a bench-type oscilloscope.
Waveforms accessed from the AFG are displayed and saved to an external flash drive and to an oscilloscope’s internal memory.
