Tektronix Announces DDR3-2133, DDR3-2400 Logic Debug, Protocol Validation Solution

Tektronix, Inc., a leading worldwide provider of test, measurement and monitoring instrumentation, today announced the next generation of DDR3 probing solutions for logic debug and protocol validation using the Tektronix TLA7000 Series Logic Analyzers with support for DDR3-2133 MT/s and DDR3-2400 MT/s. This is the highest performing DDR3 protocol test solution in the market today.

With the introduction of the new high-speed DDR3 interposer for DIMM form factor, Tektronix enables customers to reuse their existing TLA7BBx modules to acquire Address, Control, Command and Data signals for all DDR3 speeds -- ranging from DDR3-800 MT/s to DDR3-2400 MT/s as well as Low Voltage DDR3. The new interposer is the first to use Tektronix ultra-high performance SiGe hybrid ASIC technology to provide true analog insight at every DDR3 I/O. The new Interposer is designed to maintain signal integrity on the target by providing reduced probe loading when compared to other commercially available interposer solutions.

Across all computing segments, there is strong demand for faster and higher memory capacities together with lower power consumption. JEDEC continues to add higher speed grades to the DDR3 standard and is moving toward a new DDR4 specification. With its new interposer architecture, Tektronix is not only supporting today's higher speed DDR3 requirements but also setting the stage for rapid support of DDR4 as that standard moves forward into the market.

"The industry is pushing the performance envelope on DDR3 memory to keep pace with ever more demanding applications," said Dave Farrell, director of the Digital Analysis Product Line for Tektronix. "Our DDR3 solutions provide design engineers with the most complete, high performance tools for logic debug and protocol validation of the DDR3 interface at an industry leading price point. We are well positioned to support high speed DDR3 and also the emerging DDR4 standard."

Banner Engineering DF-G3 Discrete Fiber Amplifier Features World-Class Long Range Sensing Capability

Banner Engineering introduces its DF-G3 discrete long-range fiber amplifier with dual digital displays for use with plastic and glass fiber optic assemblies. Featuring increased sensing power, the DF-G3 can sense more than 3 meters (10 ft.) with opposed mode fibers or more than 1 meter (3 ft.) with diffuse mode fibers. The extra power provides increased detection reliability for dark targets at long range and enhanced detection sensitivity when using specialty fiber assemblies for large area and small part detection applications.

The DF-G3 is available with a single discrete output or two dual discrete outputs. The dual discrete outputs can be independently taught to trigger at different intensity values, which is ideal for correct part-in-place or error-proofing, bottle down, and edge guiding applications.

“We developed the DF-G3 fiber amplifier to meet our customers’ need to precisely detect smaller targets at longer ranges” said Dennis Smith, Senior Marketing Manager, Banner Engin…


TURCK is now offering the option to completely shield M8 picofast ® cordsets by connecting a braided shield directly to the coupling nut. This provides a cost-effective and reliable connection with 100 percent cable and connector shielding, which protects against electromagnetic and radio frequency interference.

The 3 and 4-pin cordsets are available with flexlife ® PVC or PUR jacketed cable. All connectors deliver IEC IP 67 protection.

The M8 picofast line, like most TURCK cordsets, provides male or female, straight and right angle connectors, standard and custom lengths, and pigtails or extensions. Fully encapsulated mating receptacles are also offered, completing the system.

TURCK’s BL Compact Family Collects Analog and Digital Signals at the Source

TURCK’s BL Compact system is a revolutionary modular I/O solution for collecting a variety of signals in a single, rugged node on a network. Rather than routing all signals through a control cabinet, this device makes it possible to obtain analog, digital, thermocouple, RTD, serial, RFID or a mixture of signal types in a compact, machine-mountable device over DeviceNet™, CANopen and PROFIBUS ®.

Up to two signals types can be combined in any combination in the BL Compact system, including RFID and analog, digital and serial—and more. The BL Compact system may be customized to suit a user’s specific needs, so that devices may be added to an existing network and signals may be gathered on the machine without an enclosure. This drop-in solution can be used to connect up to 16 devices—drastically reducing the time it takes to run wires for each device back to the control cabinet and the potential for wiring errors.

The BL Compact system is currently available with four, eight or 16 ports i…
