Tektronix, Inc. Key Developments

Tektronix, Inc. Unveils Cost-Effective, Versatile Electrochemistry Lab Systems

Tektronix, Inc. announced the first graphical touchscreen Electrochemistry Lab Systems, the 2450-EC and 2460-EC. These new Keithley interactive solutions offer a lower cost, more flexible, and easier method for conducting a range of electrochemistry experiments, including cyclic voltammetry, chronoamperometry, and chronopotentiometry. The traditional approach to electrochemistry testing involves potentiostat instrumentation and vendor-supplied software that is typically not customizable. The Keithley solutions bring a number of advantages, including a lower purchase price and cost of ownership, customizable software, and simple operation with the ability to run experiments, make measurements, and generate voltammogram plot results directly on the instruments' touchscreen display. With gestural 'pinch and zoom' on the graphical display, users can quickly analyze the results and make quick research and design decisions. Potentiostats lack front panel controls and require a separate PC to set up and run experiments. Electrochemists, chemists, and other scientists use electrical measurement techniques to study chemical reactions and dynamics. Keithley's Electrochemistry Lab Systems are versatile instruments that can source and measure voltage or current and can be used to compare results to parameters for voltammetry experiments or over time for chronoamperometry experiments. These instruments are 4-quadrant instruments that can both source power and sink power. Typical potentiostats are 2-quadrant, which limits their use as a general purpose instrument beyond electrochemistry applications. In contrast the 2450-EC and 2460-EC can be repurposed as a general use lab tool for such applications as I-V testing, leakage testing, and battery charge/discharge profiling. The 2450-EC and 2460-EC are available now for order in the US, Japan, and EMEA countries from Tektronix or an authorized distributor. Introductory pricing starts at $6,900 MSRP.

Tektronix, Inc. Announces Fully Automated Physical Layer Transmitter Test Solution for the MIPI M-PHY 3.1 Specification and Conformance Test Suite (CTS) 3.1

Tektronix, Inc. announced the industry's first fully automated physical layer transmitter test solution for the MIPI M-PHY 3.1 specification and Conformance Test Suite (CTS) 3.1. The solution supports M-PHY High Speed Gears 1, 2 and 3, PWM Mode (G0-G7), and SYS Mode and offers the industry's lowest noise solution for M-PHY measurements when used with Tektronix DPO70000SX or MSO/DPO70000DX oscilloscopes and P7600 series probes. The mobile industry is moving toward smaller and faster devices that require faster communication between chips over interfaces such as SSIC and need faster access to storage devices over interfaces such as UFS/MIPI UniProSM. This drives the need for higher data rates, higher throughput, modern design implementations and the need for sophisticated test and measurement tools. Automated serial test solutions such as what Tektronix is now offering for MIPI M-PHY 3.1 allow engineers to complete the full set of tests in significantly less time while improving consistency. The automated solution supports advanced analysis, debugging and characterization of devices while allowing designers to test in compliance mode as well as user-defined mode. The M-PHY TX automated solutions provides support for 100% of tests as per M-PHY 3.1 and CTS 3.1 using the TekExpress 4.0 framework, a tool designed for automation. The backend engine of automation is based on Iron Python which uses socket based programming and .Net remoting. Socket-based scripting interface is a de-facto standard that allows engineers to integrate Tektronix automated solution into their automation environments. Testing M-PHY transmitters running in high-speed mode requires a scope and probe system with rise time 3X faster than the signal rise time, sensitivity of 200 mVFS, minimal added noise (<1 or 2 mVrms), and high return loss as specified in the M-PHY standard. Tektronix DPO70000SX and MSO/DPO 70000DX oscilloscopes and P7600 Series TriMode probes are the only measurement system available that can meet these requirements while also providing convenient and consistent bus termination for HS measurements with low noise and high sensitivity. The closest alternative has 10X worse sensitivity (Tektronix: 35 mVfs vs. Competition: 360mVfs) and adds 4X more noise (Tektronix: <1mVrms vs. Competition: 4 mVrms) to the signal.

Tektronix, Inc. Expands Bench Instrument Line Up with New Power Supplies, Function Generator

Tektronix, Inc. introduced additions to a family of Keithley power supplies and a new 60 MHz Arbitrary Function Generator featuring best-in-class price performance that together give engineers an expanded range of options for adding essential instruments to their test bench. Versatile, flexible and cost-effective instruments such as Tektronix oscilloscopes, signal generators and Keithley power supplies are the staples of well-equipped engineering work benches, whether in R&D labs, manufacturing facilities, repair depots or universities. Given the wide range of potential applications, it's critical to offer customers a broad range of instrument performance levels and price points so they can tailor each bench to fit their needs. Eight new DC Power Supply Models: The drive toward versatility is on full display at Tektronix with the introduction of eight new programmable DC power supplies. These additions to the Keithley Series 2260B power supply family include six new 250V and 800V high voltage models, a new 108A high current model and a new 80V/40A 1080W high power model. The new additions expand the test applications for the Series 2260B family, allowing the supplies to source higher power, high voltage, and higher current components, sub-assemblies, and products. Regardless of the configuration selected, Series 2260B power supplies feature programmable rise and fall time control for both the voltage and the current waveforms. This allow engineers to create customized output voltage source waveforms and to avoid overshoot and potential damage to a device-under-test due to high inrush current. An embedded programmable output resistance feature allows users to simulate the output of a battery for testing higher power portable battery products. Adding to their versatility, the compact size of the series 2260B supplies allows six 360W supplies, or three 720W supplies, or two 1080W supplies to be rack-mounted in a single row. AFG1062 Features Best-in-Class Price Performance: compared to scope-based signal generators or standalone AFGs in this price class, the Tektronix AFG1000 series of instruments offer better performance and greater flexibility. The AFG1062 expands the series with impressive specifications for its price including two equally capable channels, 60 MHz bandwidth with 1mVpp to 10Vpp output amplitude, 14-bit vertical resolution and 1µHz frequency resolution. It provides a 300 MS/s sample rate along with 1M points record length and USB memory expansion for user-defined waveforms. With the addition of the AFG1062, Tektronix now offers educational institutions the industry's most complete set of affordable instruments including oscilloscopes, signal generators, digital multi-meters and power supplies, all tied together with the TekSmartLab wireless lab instrument management solution. The AFG1062 includes 50 built-in standard functions and arbitrary waveforms with continuous, modulation, sweep and burst modes to cover a broad range of applications. The instrument is easy to use with a 3.95-in TFT color display, shortcut buttons and a rotary knob for quick setting adjustments. Its compact form factor saves valuable bench space. All eight new Keithley Series 2260B DC power supplies are available now with prices starting at $1,800 MSRP. The AFG1062 is also available now globally and is priced at $999 MSRP including a 5 year warranty.
