Traditional quality improvement programs are yielding diminishing returns. As a result, many manufacturing environments are turning to the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) to deliver the insights necessary to initiate a next wave of significant efficiency improvements. One major area of potential in this new IIoT landscape is the use of wireless technology. Radio frequency […]
By Kaitlyn Franz, Test and Measurement Product Manager USB instruments are a commonly featured topic in Test and Measurement media. With new devices constantly launching, an especially heated debate is standalone oscilloscopes vs USB oscilloscopes. With the debate, comes misconceptions. Here’s the bottom line, there are going to be cases where one fits the application […]
Industrial IoT (IIoT), or Industry 4.0, is revolutionizing the way factories, suppliers and customers share their digital knowledge. From process control and automotive assembly, to robotics and the food and beverage industry, the concept behind Industry 4.0 touches all industries. However, the benefits of IIoT are not available at the flick of a switch. To […]
Signal integrity applications commonly utilize balanced/differential transmission lines that are typically characterized using vector network analyzers (VNAs). This white paper offers guidance to signal integrity designers on the differences between the superposition and true-balanced approaches and which one may best fit their need.
