Acqiris' dual-channel, reconfigurable PCI analyzers have new firmware for advanced peak analysis and time-to-digital conversion. Their DPU can isolate peaks from waveform data obtained at up to 2GS/s (1 GS/e for the AP235), and get it to the host PC in time and/or amplitude forms. The analyzers' advanced hysteresis algorithm locates peaks by measuring the true peak position and amplitude, and a wide range of multiple peaks can be defined. The analyzer platforms can be reconfigured for a variety of onboard real-time signal processing, using dual channels with independent digitizers and separate programmable processing.
Festo's BionicKangaroo combines pneumatic and electrical drive technology, plus very precise controls and condition monitoring. Like a real kangaroo, the BionicKangaroo robot harvests the kinetic energy of each takeoff and immediately uses it to power the next jump.
