ASSET InterTech published an ebook about JTAG. The article describes how the structural test methodology based on the IEEE 1149.1 boundary scan standard can apply functional tests to I2C and SPI system monitors during prototype board bring-up and later during production of the circuit board. The title of the technical paper is: Functional Test on I2C and SPI System Monitors with JTAG.
ADLINK Technology introduced their USB-7230 and USB-7250 isolated USB digital I/O modules. The USB-7230 features 32-CH isolated digital I/O and 2-CH frequency/event counters, while the USB-7250 provides 8-CH solid-state relay output (4 form C and 4 form A), 8-CH isolated DI, and 2-CH frequency/event counters. The USB form factor DAQ/DIO products are ideal for high voltage control and monitoring applications.
Test Insight, a world leader in software tools for linking design to test and managing ATE programs, announced that the microelectronics division of DELTA, a European leader of value-added ASIC services, has adopted Tester Data Link to improve design to test flows while at the same time offering improved services to customers.
Data Translation introduced the DT9847 Series high-accuracy, dynamic signal acquisition modules for USB. The DT9847 features an ultra-low total harmonic distortion (THD) of 102dB. It also offers a 123dB dynamic range for low to high level precise signal measurement without any gain ranging. The DT9847 Series will be available this month. Prices start at $1595.
API Technologies introduced their XL403D Advanced Digital Accelerometer. The patent pending accelerometer evaluates minimum/maximum, magnitude, peak-to-peak, and tilt right in the accelerometer itself. The XL403D is the first accelerometer to support SCPI-like commands, returns data in engineering units, and works with any standard terminal emulator.
Saelig introduced the Owon SmartDS 5032E oscilloscope. The SDS5032E features manual cursor measurements, up to 19 automatic measurements (including frequency), high-speed screen update, storage for up to 15 waveforms and set-up parameters, convenient USB serial interface with PC software, and advanced trigger settings including pulse width criteria for detecting rogue signals. The two-channel oscilloscope is available now for $299.
Mantracourt introduced the T24-GW1 Modbus Gateway. The T24-GW1 is a Modbus interface gateway with a simple interface for gathering data from up to 100 acquisition modules in a T24 network using either the standard Modbus interface RTU protocol or a simple ASCII protocol. Simple commands are available to wake, sleep, and keep awake T24 acquisition modules. The Mantracourt T24-GW1 is ideal for process control, industrial processing, chemical manufacturing, pharmaceuticals and automotive applications.
Bruker introduced the Photoconductive Module for the Dimension Icon Atomic Force Microscope (AFM). The Photoconductive Atomic Force Microscopy (pcAFM) enables sample illumination while performing nanoscale electrical characterization. Bruker’s pcAFM accessory transforms the Dimension Icon AFM into a solution for dedicated nanoscale organic photoelectric material research.
Lantronix launched their xSenso analog device server (ADS). xSenso enables sensors with analog outputs to send real-time data to any node on the network or over the Internet. The device remotely monitors and logs data from a variety of sensors — including temperature, humidity, pressure, level, flow, weight, and gas/air quality transmitters. xSenso can be IN-rail or wall mounted. It is available now for $235.
ASSET InterTech published a new white paper about non-intrusive embedded instruments. The technical paper explains how non-intrusive software-driven embedded instruments can overcome many of the challenges of testing, validating and debugging high-speed memory buses such the DDR 3 or DDR4 (DDR3/4) buses, and others. The title of their article is “How to test high-speed memory with non-intrusive embedded instruments.”
