PicoVNA 106 Network Analyzer from Saelig Saelig Company, Inc. has introduced the Pico Technology PicoVNA 106 Low-Cost Vector Network Analyzer - an economical USB-controlled, professional-grade 300kHz to 6GHz Vector Network Analyzer (VNA) with excellent performance, portability, and affordability. Despite its small size and low cost, its full-function, minimal-error, ‘Quad RX’ four-receiver architecture supports both 8- and 12-term calibration without the uncorrectable switching errors, delays, and unreliability of traditional three-receiver designs. The instrument supports convenient calibration methods such as ‘enhanced isolation correction’ and ‘unknown thru’.

The PicoVNA 106 has a dynamic range of up to 118dB at 10Hz and only 0.005dB RMS trace noise at its maximum bandwidth of 140kHz. It can gather all four S-parameters at just 190usec per frequency point, so a 500 point 2-port S2P Touchstone file (compatible with many test, math, view and EDA simulation tools) is captured in less than 1/10 sec. This performance compares with other full-function VNAs that are more than four times as expensive. The PicoVNA 106 is even cost-effective as a high-dynamic-range scalar network analyzer where phase measurements are not needed, or even as a single-port vector reflectometer. The product also includes bias-Ts for the convenient injection of a bias or test stimulus. The PicoVNA 106 software's two utilities address gain compression (P1dB) and AM to PM. Both of these use a port power sweep at each test frequency, with both measurements extracted using second-order interpolation.[Continue reading →]

SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Cypress Semiconductor Corp. (Nasdaq: CY) today introduced a new PSoC® programmable system-on-chip that simplifies the design of next-generation industrial, home appliance and consumer systems that require multiple sensors. Many Internet of Things (IoT) applications require multiple sensors and can benefit from dedicated coprocessors that offload sensor processing from the host and reduce overall system power consumption. The new PSoC Analog Coprocessor integrates programmable analog blocks, including a new Universal Analog Block (UAB), which can be configured with GUI-based software components. This combination simplifies the design of custom analog front ends for sensor interfaces by allowing engineers to update sensor features quickly with no hardware or host processor software changes, while also reducing BOM costs.

For example, in home automation applications, engineers can easily configure the PSoC Analog Coprocessor to continuously monitor multiple sensors, such as temperature, humidity, ambient light, motion and sound, allowing the host to stay in a standby low-power mode. Future design changes to support new sensor types can also be easily implemented by reconfiguring the programmable analog blocks. Cypress will demonstrate the PSoC Analog Coprocessor, along with its PSoC, FM Flexible MCU, Bluetooth® Low Energy and Energy Harvesting Power Management IC solutions at Sensors Expo from June 21 to 23 in booth 416 at the McEnery Convention Center in San Jose. More information on the PSoC Analog Coprocessor is available at www.cypress.com/PSoCAnalog.[Continue reading →]

Spectrum\'s SCAPP Currently digitizers have a bottleneck caused by having to use either the host PC's central processor with 8 or 16 cores or a FPGA that is complex to program. Spectrum Instrumentation has solved this problem with its new SCAPP software option - the Spectrum CUDA Access for Parallel Processing - that opens an easy-to-use yet extremely powerful way to digitize, process and analyze electronic signals. SCAPP allows a CUDA-based Graphical Processing Unit (GPU) to be used directly between any Spectrum digitizer and the PC. The big advantage is that data is passed directly from the digitizer to the GPU where high-speed parallel processing is possible using the GPU board's multiple (up to 5000) processing cores. That provides a significant performance enhancement when compared to sending data directly to a PC that may have only 8 or 16 cores. It becomes even more important when signals are being digitized at high-speeds such as 50 MS/s, 500 MS/s or even 5 GS/s.

VRD1 VIDEO RECORDING AND DISTRIBUTION SYSTEM NOW ALSO FUNCTIONS AS A NETWORK FILE SERVER TO SUPPORT NETWORK ACCESS, REDUCE COST AND COMPONENT COUNT EUROSATORY 2016 (Booth #HALL 5A, Stand J761), PARIS, FRANCE – June 13-17, 2016 – Curtiss-Wright’s Defense Solutions division today announced that its industry-leading VRD1 rugged video management system (VMS) has been enhanced with the addition of network attached storage (NAS) capability, significantly expanding its utility in demanding aerospace, defense, and law enforcement ISR applications. Designed to speed and simplify the integration of high definition (HD) video management on airborne and ground platforms, the VRD1 uniquely delivers integrated format conversion, compression, scaling, switching, recording and network distribution of many video types in a single compact rugged unit. Now also able to function as network attached storage (NAS) or as a network file server (NFS), the VRD1 spans both video-centric and network-centric systems. It enables Ethernet-based network clients to remotely access files stored on the VRD1, using standard networking protocols (such as NFS, CIFS, FTP or HTTP). With its ability to now serve boot files to any network client, this innovative VMS significantly reduces size, weight, power and cost (SWaP-C) by eliminating the need for additional memory storage in each network client. The VRD1 is ideal for use in demanding deployed applications, such as Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR) missions that require multiple displays and cameras, such as FLIR and Wescam turret-mounted camera systems, and deployed Ethernet-based systems whose network clients require access to NAS.

“The addition of NAS functionality to our popular VRD1 video management system further extends our leadership and commitment to providing the industry’s most innovative and high performance solutions for demanding video-centric and network-centric applications,” said Lynn Bamford, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Defense Solutions division. ”Customers continue to seek more video functionality, yet seek to reduce SWaP. VRD1 meets these needs with a powerful networked VMS that combines multiple functions in a single unit and eliminates the need for individual storage devices across the platform.”[Continue reading →]
