Want a free Test Instrument?

Effectively immediately to the end of 2014, Siglent Technologies is running a promotion where 1 out of 10 new Siglent customers can win a new Siglent oscilloscope or function generator. To qualify, all you have to do is write an honest review of a Siglent instrument on-line - which means you will probably need to buy one soon!  Details from or here:

50% off AWGs!!

AIM-TTi recently made some small changes to their high-quality TGxx11 Arbitrary Signal Generators.  We have a few of the existing models in stock and have reduced the prices dramatically – by 50%!  TG2511 is a 25MHz Function/Pulse/Arbitrary Generator, USB/LXI Reg. $1,239.56 Sale! $575; and the TG5011 is a 50MHz Function/Pulse/Arbitrary Generator, USB/LXI Reg. $1,397.00 Sale! $675.00.  The TGxx11 series from AIM-TTi offers a remarkable price-performance ratio for any DDS function generator available. It offers high quality sine and square waves up to 25MHz, noise generation, complex wave-shapes, true pulse generator mode with variable rise and fall times, and 128K word arbitrary waveforms. Extensive internal and external modulation capabilities include AM, FM, PM, PWM & FSK using any wave-shape (including noise). Full remote control facilities are available using USB or LXI compliant LAN.  Arbitrary waveforms can be saved and loaded via a front mounted USB flash drive socket.

Be elsewhere without airport hassles ....

Saelig Company, Inc introduces the Double Telepresence Robot, a self-balancing mobile robot that can navigate around - and send video/audio - from a remote location, controlled from anywhere in the world via the Internet.  Double can be remotely operated via any iOS device or web browser, allowing movement even while on a two-way video call, transforming telecommuting for deeper interaction with remote team members. Double takes all the great aspects of video calls via an iPad and places them on a mobile base that puts the remote worker in control.

Digital Datalogger LOGStorm Adds Protocol Decoding

Byteparadigm’s Logic Analyzer, High-speed Digital Data Logger and I²C / SPI Analyzer now includes fast SPI / I²C protocol decoding
on up to 20 serial lines, display results on-screen within waveforms. This versatile USB device for digital system analysis samples at up to 100MSa/s and can be used as a simple 20 bit logic analyzer with large 8MSa storage memory. Unique features include: data logger capability, with ‘always-on’/gigabyte-range data recording to PC; hardware data qualification / data filtering capabilities usually found on high-end logic analyzers. Data filtering / data qualification is most helpful in drilling down to essential digital clues when debugging and troubleshooting embedded systems with more complex chips running at higher speeds. The debugging process is like an investigation: you collect an array of evidences and progressively ‘narrow down’ to the source of the problem. Two filtering options are available with LOG Storm Studio: 1) Fixed length: it defines a START condition and a CAPTURE length. It also foresees a pre-fetch option for capturing data before the START condition;  2)  Variable length: it defines a START condition and a STOP condition. This type of capture includes pre-fetch and post-fetch options for capturing data before the START and after the STOP conditions.  In addition, both types of capture include an ‘ENABLE’ option that defines which data must be captured.  More here:
