Welcome to Electronic Design's destination for test and measurement technology trends, products, industry news, new applications, articles and commentary from our contributing technical experts and the community.
Every electronics project requires test and measurement. But as the industry demands devices that are always getting smaller, faster, and more powerful, your old oscilloscope might not keep up. Test and measurement companies are responding with new equipment to meet these challenges, especially the issues presented by the growing wireless market.
The challenge in measuring low frequencies is that the counter gate time is often too short for the signal relatively long period. This non-critical circuit automatically multiplies an input single frequency times four to enable measurement of frequencies from 1 Hz to 40 kHz, tracking step changes in the input frequency as well....More
Semiconductor devices include ESD protection circuitry. But to ensure their effectiveness and reliability requirements as per JEDEC standards, ESD tests are required to qualify parts. There are three main test models for ESD tests: the human body model (HBM), the charge device model (CDM), and the machine model (MM)....More
Hexagon Metrology claims that its m&h IRP40.50 infrared touch probe is the smallest self-contained wireless computer-numerical-control (CNC) probe, measuring 25 mm in diameter and 44.2 mm in length without shank and stylus....More
To deliver more comprehensive machinery vibration analysis, ADLINK Technology packaged the Visual Signal DAQ Express time-frequency analysis (TFA) application with its USB-2405 24-bit, USB 2.0 dynamic signal acquisition (DSA) module for integrated electronic piezoelectric (IEPE) accelerometer and microphone-based vibration measurement....More
