Optical Wavelength Meter

Bristol Instruments, Inc. (Victor, NY) recently introduced the 828B Optical Wavelength Meter that can measure the absolute wavelength of WDM lasers to an accuracy of ± 1 pm. This accuracy is maintained over long periods of time by calibrating with a built-in wavelength standard resulting in a confidence level of 99.7%. What makes the 828B system special is that it measures wavelength at a rate as high as 1 kHz. What’s more, the speed of the 828B system provides time resolution as short as 1 ms, resulting in more detailed wavelength characterization of components such as tunable WDM lasers.

Ultraviolet DLP Chip

Texas Instruments (TI) DLP® Products (Dallas, TX) has released the DLP9500UV chipset, a high resolution ultraviolet (UV) DLP chip designed to quickly expose and cure photosensitive materials in industrial and medical imaging applications, including direct imaging lithography, 3D printing, laser marking, ophthalmology, phototherapy and hyperspectral imaging. Two million micromirrors (1920 x 1080) enable end equipment to image large exposure areas with few print heads, and it supports print feature sizes approaching 1µm. It is optimized for exposure in the 363 – 420 nm wavelengths.

Dual A/D Converter FMC

VadaTech (Henderson, NV) has released a new analog-to-digital converter (ADC) for RADAR, SIGINT, wireless infrastructure, RF Sampling SDR, and other applications. The FMC226 is a dual ADC, 12-bit at 4.0 GSPS module. The compact FPGA Mezzanine Card (FMC) plugs into any VITA 57 compliant board, including VadaTech’s numerous FPGA carriers. The analog input, clock input and trigger inputs of the FMC226 are routed via SSMC connectors. The internal clock frequency is programmable and the clock is capable of locking to an external reference. An ultra-low noise wideband Phased Locked Loop (PLL) on the FMC226 provides precision timing and clean signals.

26-Port Gigabit Ethernet Switch

Diamond Systems Corporation (Mountain View, CA) recently unveiled the Epsilon-24000 family of gigabit Ethernet switches. These rugged, managed Layer 2+ Ethernet switch modules offer up to 24 10/100/1000 Mbps copper twisted pair ports plus two small form factor pluggable (SFP) sockets in the compact PC/104 form factor measuring 4.5 x 3.8 inches (96 x 116 mm). Two models of the switch are available: The EPS-24016 includes 16 10/100/1000 copper ports, and the EPS-24026 contains 24 10/100/1000 ports plus 2 SFP sockets. Both models use a conduction cooling heat spreader for efficient thermal dissipation and mounting to the system enclosure. A heat sink accessory is also available.

Vector Network Analyzers

Anritsu Company (Morgan Hill, CA) has expanded its Shock-Line™ family of vector network analyzers (VNAs) with the introduction of the Performance ShockLine MS46500B series. The MS46500B series is comprised of the 2-port MS46522B and 4-port MS46524B models, and expands the ShockLine family to a broader spectrum of RF test applications. Each instrument features an independent source per VNA port, and all the sources can sweep at the same time for measurement of forward and reverse s-parameters simultaneously. This unique Simultaneous Sweep feature allows 2-port measurements to be conducted twice as fast and 4-port measurements 4x as fast.

Portable Temperature and Humidity Data Loggers

Omega’s OM-90 Series are portable, battery operated, temperature (OM-91) and temperature/humidity (OM-92) data loggers. Temperature is measured to an accuracy of ±0.3°C over the range of 5 to 60°C (41 to 140°F) and ±2.0°C over the full range of -30 to 80°C (-22 to 176°F). Relative humidity is measured to an accuracy of ±3.0% RH over the 20 to 80% RH range and ±5.0% RH over the 0 to 100% RH range. Both temperature and relative humidity are logged at a user configurable logging rate which is software selectable.
