Real-Time Oscilloscopes

The Infiniium UXR series are said to be the only oscilloscopes to support terabit research with real-time bandwidth up to 110 GHz industry-leading sample rate (256 GSa/s) and signal integrity (lowest noise and jitter). Its performance accelerates time-to-market for breakthrough developments in PAM-4, 5G, and optical. KEYSIGHT TECHNOLOGIES (6)

Low Current MMIC Amplifier

EHA-163L+ is a low current, wideband gain block that operates from DC to 16 GHz with 15 dB gain and +/-0.75 dB flatness up to 12 GHz. It is well matched to 50 ohms with input/output return loss of 10 dB or better up to 16 GHz without the need for any external matching components. […]

Hybrid & Electric Vehicle DC/DC Converter Design and Test Challenges

by  Mike Hawes, R&D Planning Manager for Automotive and Energy Solutions, Keysight Technologies, Inc. The latest news continues to support extensive investments and development in vehicle electrification as hybrid (HEV) and electric vehicle (EV) sales grow (Figure 1).
