Keysight Technologies’ Impedance Analyzer Option Speeds Low-Frequency Impedance Testing (MarketWatch)
New Option Allows Manufacturers to Perform Production Testing Quickly, Cost-Effectively
News By : Kate Nixon
Keysight Technologies, Inc.KEYS, -2.64% today introduced an enhanced measurement speed option for its E4990A impedance analyzer. With the new option, the low-frequency models of the E4990A are now as fast as the flagship 120-MHz E4990A model.
Today’s passive component manufacturers face constant pressure to reduce cost, and speed overall test time; a difficult challenge given the realities of production. During inspection, manufacturers may have to measure many devices in a day. Or, to accurately evaluate devices like resonators or inductors, they may have to measure many points per device. These tasks are all the more challenging when those measurements are performed in impedance at low frequency.
