Teledyne LeCroy (Chestnut Ridge, NY) recently introduced the WaveSurfer 510 oscilloscope, providing 1 GHz bandwidth and 10 GS/s sample rate simultaneously on all 4 channels. The WaveSurfer 510 combines the MAUI® with OneTouch user interface with powerful waveform processing, in addition to advanced math, measurement, and debug tools, to quickly analyze and find the root cause of problems.

The WaveSurfer 510 provides a high sample rate of 10 GS/s on all four channels, 32 Mpts of memory, sequence mode segmented memory, history mode waveform playback, 13 additional math functions, and two simultaneous math traces. As a result, WaveSurfer 510 performs advanced analysis on long captures with 10x oversampling to find the root cause of problems.

WaveSurfer 510 also features MAUI with OneTouch gesture control for common gestures such as drag, drop, pinch, and flick.

Pulsed L Band Multi KW Scalable Amplifier

Empower RF (Inglewood, CA) recently released its new Scalable Pulsed L Band Amplifier with an expandable system hardware architecture. Adding 3U power amplifier blocks is accomplished easily with no phase matching required.

Suitable for applications where the amplifier output power must maintain a set output level regardless of amplitude variations of the RF input signal level. This is accomplished by accurately measuring the RF output level and comparing it to a digital reference level, in real time, the reference is set by the user either through the front panel or as a SCPI command via the LAN port.

Convection-Cooled Power Supplies

Excelsys Technologies (Cork, Ireland) announced that its CoolX600 Series of 600W convection-cooled modular power supplies is now available with the option of PMBus™ (Power Management Bus) communication. PMBus is an open standard power management protocol that offers system builders a standard way to communicate with power converters over a digital communications bus by providing a full set of commands and data structures required by power control and management components.

The convection-cooled CoolX600 Series delivers 600W of output power – without fan-assisted cooling – from a compact 8.5 x 4.5 x 1U package. Typical efficiency is greater than 93%. Other features include 4KV input surge immunity and the ability to withstand input voltages of up to 300VAC.

Card Cage Front Panels and modules

The KM6 card cage family from Verotec (Manchester, NH) features three different systems, each optimized to suit a range of applications: KM6-II, KM6-RF and KM6-HD. Front panels, compatible with all KM6 versions, are a critical building block; three types are available: unshielded to IEC 60297, shielded to IEEE 1101.10 and a further design dedicated to the VXI architecture. Two and four rail modules, which can be fitted with top, bottom and side covers to enclose, screen and protect the PCB are available in 3U and 6U heights, 160 and 220mm depths and a range of widths from 10 to 42HP.

Iridite NCP conductive finish extruded shielded panels are fitted with a double swipe stainless steel EMC gasket. They are available as blank filler panels, with a fixed pull handle or with an improved design of injector/ejector latching handle. Shielded panels are available in 3U, 6U and 9U heights and 4, 5, 6, 8, 10 and 12HP widths as standard, other widths to order.

AC-DC Power Supplies

TDK Corporation (Neptune, NJ) has introduced the PHV Series of Versatile Precision High Voltage Programmable AC to DC power supplies. The PHV Series covers the voltage range from 0-125 Volts to 0-300,000 Volts, at power levels from 14 Watts to 15,000 Watts, and offers High Accuracy, Low Ripple, High Stability outputs in a compact and lightweight switchmode design.

Standard models feature a fully instrumented front panel with 4½ digit DVMs for output voltage and current. Output Voltage and Current can be locally set via 10-turn potentiometers with precision dials, or via optional analog and/or digital interfaces. The front panel also features user adjustable OVP (overvoltage trip point) via a single turn screwdriver adjustable potentiometer.

Optional remote analog programming interfaces feature either ground referenced or isolated analog/digital controls and readbacks. The remote interface is located on the rear panel via a 15-pin D-sub connector. Signals include voltage/current programming and read-back, HV ON, Polarity Set, and CC/CV indicators.
