The LeCroy WaveMaster 830Zi
is the first and only oscilloscope to achieve a real-time bandwidth of 30 GHz,
the highest real-time bandwidth available in the world. This oscilloscope
provides engineers dealing with jitter, serial data integrity, and other high
frequency test challenges
a sampling rate of 80 Gigasamples/second on two channels, and a maximum
acquisition memory of 512 Megapoints/channel so they can verify their
high-speed designs with confidence. The WaveMaster 830 Zi de-embeds
cables and test fixtures, emulates serial data channels, and simulates serial
data receiver equalization even at the highest sampling speeds of 80
level design engineers who verify, test and debug serial buses of 3Gb and
above, working with the highest speed serial data standards, such as SAS/SATA
6, PCIe Gen3, HDMI 1.3, and USB3,
need speed and efficiency. Exceptional instrument responsiveness, 10-100 times
faster processing throughput, large 15.3", 16:9 high-definition touch
screen display, and both 50 Î© / 1 MÎ© input capability provide deeper insight,
faster debug, and more efficient validation.
The digitizing system in the 830Zi utilizes LeCroy's patented Digital
Bandwidth Interleaving (DBI) technology. The advantage of this method is that
the front-end amplifiers are always operating comfortably in their rated
frequency range, and there is no impact on electrical noise or signal fidelity.
Thus, the basic 16 GHz bandwidth performance of the signal conditioning
components can be increased to 30 GHz while maintaining the highest signal
fidelity and noise performance. Sample rate and memory are likewise doubled.
The bandwidth, sampling rate, and a deep acquisition memory enable large blocks
of data to be acquired in real-time, allowing signal processing and detection
of the data bits and computation of bit error ratios.

A South African startup is combining recycled plastic with solar power to give underprivileged school children a stylish schoolbag that also supplies them with light to study by.
An in-depth survey of 700 current and future users of 3D printing holds few surprises, but results emphasize some major trends already in progress. Two standouts are the big growth in end-use parts and metal additive manufacturing (AM) most respondents expect.
Technology and global expansion are playing key roles in making manufacturing an attractive field for women to join, more than ever before, said the president of a woman-owned family of companies.
A few years ago, reshoring roared onto the scene as the next great movement in manufacturing, but the data so far reflect otherwise.
In another sign that self-driving cars are on the distant horizon, Ford has been granted a patent for an “autonomous vehicle with reconfigurable seats.”
