Network Analysis Software

OMICRON Lab (Houston, TX) has released new operation software for its Bode 100 portable network analyzer, giving users access to an extended frequency range. With the release of Bode Analyzer Suite V2.2, OMICRON Lab has managed to reduce the lower frequency border down to 1 Hz, giving the Bode 100 a range of 1 Hz – 40 MHz for Gain/Phase and impedance measurements. This extended frequency range makes the Bode 100 suitable not only for classical network analysis but also for the analysis of control circuits (e.g. DC/DC Converters), audio and ultrasound measurements, and the measurement of piezoelectric sensors and transducers. Other features of the new operation software include a straightforward and intuitive graphical user interface and OLE compatible automation interface, which facilitates integration of the Bode 100 into automated measurement setups for a variety of manufacturing or quality control applications.
