Each channel uses 24-bit analog to digital converters for maximum resolution and accuracy.

Testing Wave 2 System Profiles

August 27, 2007 11:13 am | Keysight Technologies | Product Releases | Comments

Agilent Technologies, Inc. announces an enhancement to its vector signal analyzer (VSA), signal studio and mobile WiMAX test Set measurement products to facilitate testing of the WiMAX Forum's Wave 2 system profiles. With their ability to test multiple input multiple output (MIMO) and other Wave 2 profile functionality, the systems provide up-to-date tools for engineers who require signal analysis, signal generation and end-to-end functional testing of mobile WiMAX.

Vector Programming System

August 27, 2007 11:09 am | Product Releases | Comments

BPM Microsystems' Flashstream offers flash programming of NAND and NOR flash memory at speeds as low as 2.5 percent over the theoretical programming minimum. The company’s Vector Engine uses a proprietary co-processor design to hardware accelerate flash memory waveforms during the programming cycle. Faster speeds are achieved through synchronous operations that eliminate the dead times when the DUT waits on the programmer.

UTEC introduce Slim Line DC Brushless Blower Fans to fit into lowprofile applications. The blowers provide maximum air performance with its dual intake type frame and it is suitable for Note Book, A4 size Laptop, PDA Mobile Devices and any other low profile applications.

Connector Families with Unique Housings

August 27, 2007 9:35 am | Product Releases | Comments

Anderson Power Products introduced the Powerpole and SB Multipole connector families which feature modular, interchangeable, color-coded and genderless housings. The Powerpole connectors are available in a variety of amperage ratings, from 15A to 180A, for use through 600V continuous, AC or DC operation. Molded dovetails provide a unique keying feature, preventing misconnection with different connectors. Also offered are the compact and robust PCB contacts, for a wire to board connection.

Flush Design Stainless Steel Swinghandle

August 27, 2007 7:13 am | Product Releases | Comments

DIRAK introduced a flush design stainless steel swinghandle for applications where corrosion resistance is important. From the inside, the internal components of the swinghandle are protected by a stainless steel, screw-on cap. From the outside, the locking cylinder is protected by a stainless steel dust cover to prevent dirt, moisture and other elements from damaging the locking mechanism. This stainless steel swinghandle can be used with 3-point latching systems for larger enclosure doors and meets IP65 standards for water and dust resistance. The flush design of this stainless steel swinghandle and the tight gap between the handle and its housing offers protection from the threat of vandalism. Pry points have been minimized and the flushness of the swinghandle makes it difficult to use as a climbing aid.
