The US-based Keysight Tech­nolo­gies, which man­u­fac­tures elec­tronic test and mea­sure­ment equip­ment and soft­ware, has launched Dig­i­tal Stor­age Os­cil­lo­scope (DSO). It is used to mea­sure time and it has a pro­to­col anal­yser. Keysight’s prod­ucts in­clude hard­ware and soft­ware for bench­top, mod­u­lar, and field in­stru­ments. Keysight has been op­er­at­ing in In­dia since 1999 and has pres­ence in 6 cities: Mane­sar, New Delhi, Ban­ga­lore, Mum­bai, Chen­nai and Hy­der­abad.

Elec­tronic test equip­ment is used to cre­ate sig­nals and cap­ture re­sponses from elec­tronic de­vices un­der test. In this way, the proper op­er­a­tion of the DUT can be proven or faults in the de­vice can be traced. Os­cil­lo­scopes are used to mea­sure elec­tric sig­nals to dis­play it as wave­forms. Rather than pro­cess­ing the sig­nals in an ana­log fash­ion, DSO con­verts them into a dig­i­tal for­mat us­ing an ana­log to dig­i­tal con­ver­tor (ADC). Since the wave­form is stored in a dig­i­tal for­mat, the data can be pro­cessed ei­ther within the os­cil­lo­scope it­self, or even in a PC con­nected to it. The trig­ger de­ter­mines at what time should Os­cil­lo­scope start to ac­quire data and to a dis­play a wave­form. The trig­ger must set prop­erly oth­er­wise the wave­form dis­play may not sta­ble and some­times the screen goes blank due to syn­chro­ni­sa­tion of trig­ger pulse. Dig­i­tal stor­age os­cil­lo­scope is em­ployed to mea­sure: Volt­age of the ap­plied sig­nal, Fre­quency of the ap­plied sig­nal, Time pe­riod of ap­plied sig­nal, Am­pli­tude of ap­plied sig­nal, Av­er­age RMS value of ap­plied sig­nal, and Duty cy­cle of ap­plied sig­nal. Dur­ing the test­ing time, they de­code the sig­nal and find out the er­rors in the time frame rate. Scope, power anal­yser, analy­ses the func­tion of the power. This prod­uct mea­sures the switch­ing losses of the switch­ing de­vices ef­fi­ciently.

The com­pany spokesper­son said “the first stage the sig­nal en­ters within the scope is the ver­ti­cal am­pli­fier where some ana­logue sig­nal con­di­tion­ing is un­der­taken to scale and po­si­tion the wave­form. Next this sig­nal is ap­plied to an ana­logue to dig­i­tal con­verter (ADC). The DSO is easy to set up. The dig­i­tal stor­age os­cil­lo­scope has many con­trols, e.g. Switch, TIME / DIV, Trig­ger con­trols, In­ten­sity and fo­cus, CH I and CH II in­puts, VOLTS / DIV etc. Os­cil­lo­scopes can be used to mea­sure and an­a­lyse the op­er­at­ing char­ac­ter­is­tics of power con­ver­sion de­vices, cir­cuits, and line-power har­mon­ics. It has the fastest up­date rates, the deep­est mem­ory, the in­dus­try’s only ca­pac­i­tive touch screen, and the most os­cil­lo­scope soft­ware op­tions.”

Rapid tech­no­log­i­cal ad­vance­ments in the area of elec­tric and hy­brid elec­tric ve­hi­cles will re­quire com­pre­hen­sive power tests for var­i­ous in-ve­hic­u­lar sys­tems de­signed for con­ver­sion of ki­netic en­ergy to bat­tery en­ergy. Sta­teof-the-art elec­tric pow­er­train sys­tems re­quire com­pre­hen­sive tests dur­ing de­vel­op­ment and test phases to en­sure max­i­mum safety and seam­less op­er­a­tion be­fore the ve­hi­cle goes on the roads.

Keysight pro­vides high power test and mea­sure­ment, from fuel cells to bat­ter­ies ad­dresses the mecha­tron­ics test needs – from the com­bi­na­tion of electro­mechan­i­cal com­po­nents, power elec­tron­ics, mi­cro-con­troller chips (e.g. en­gine con­trol units or ECUs), to con­trol soft­ware, en­sur­ing only the best qual­ity prod­ucts move from the fac­tory floors onto the roads. It also pro­vides a range of pow­er­ful so­lu­tions to help au­to­mo­tive elec­tron­ics de­sign­ers and man­u­fac­tur­ers op­ti­mise their de­sign and de­vel­op­ment of cut­ting-edge bat­tery and bat­tery man­age­ment sys­tems, driv­e­train mo­tor con­trol sys­tems, elec­tric mo­tors and DC-DC con­vert­ers.
