Agilent's U3606A is a combination of a 5 Â˝-digit digital
multimeter (DMM) and a 30W dual-range dc power supply. The DMM and power supply
can operate simultaneously and independently, providing efficient, affordable
testing and saving space on the bench or in a rack. The feature-packed U3606A
is an innovation, establishing a new category of space-saving instrumentation
with its launch. The hybrid instrument is ideal for basic instrument users in
the general purpose market, including consumer electronics, semiconductor and
communication segments. Unlike DMM and power supplies that offer only single
functionality but require separate controls, the U3606A operates simultaneously
and independently to simplify test setup and system integration. The new hybrid
conveniently combines a 5Â˝-digit DMM and 30-W power supply in a single unit,
without compromising the functions on both instruments. U3606A provides niche
four-wire milliohm measurements that are traditionally accomplished through milli-ohmmeters.
This enables tests particularly in semiconductor or coil contact applications. U3606A
introduces on-board sweep function for multi-level DC bias test that usually
requires software control. Auto ramp or scan modes enable sweep test using the
front panel, without any programming involved. This hybrid allows up to 10,000
steps of ramp level in a user-defined time. It simplifies setup configuration
for reliability test and power on/off test. The U3606A improves
productivity by introducing niche features to stretch test capabilities. It is
affordable, space- and cost-saving and simplifies test setup.
Lantronix Inc. has expanded its line of controllers for sensor networks with the release of a rugged controller that improves management of automation systems used in a number of industries, including manufacturing, oil and gas, and chemicals.
Inspired by the hooks a parasitic worm uses to penetrate its host's intestines, the Karp Lab has invented a flexible adhesive patch covered with microneedles that adheres well to wet, soft tissues, but doesn't cause damage when removed.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
