According to the Federal Law «On ensuring the uniformity of measurements » any measuring instrument type must be approved by means of control tests for further application in the state regulation field. Such tests should confirm the specified accuracy and the interval between verification processes. Verification methods should be also tested. For the type approval testing the identification of standardized metrological characteristics is considered the most important, and approbation is more often limited to checking the possibility of verification operations. But in fact the situation can be quite different. For more details read the present article written by Professor Levin S.F.

There are various types of digital multimeters (DMM) on the market. So how do you determine which one is best for your application? Selecting a DMM with more capabilities than you need means spending more money than necessary, while selecting a device under-equipped for your application can expose technicians to life-threatening electrical hazards.

Development of telecommunication technologies, new standards of wireless data transmission and their continuous improvement require new devices use to analyze radio- frequency spectrum since ordinary swepttype spectrum analyzers are no longer suitable to solve the whole complex of tasks. Signals become increasingly complicated with jumps from one frequency to another, electromagnetic environment keeps on deteriorating, and the possibility of signal omission or its incorrect analysis is very high. In this case the best solution would be to use a real-time spectrum analyzer.
Rigol Technologies, Inc. announced a new series of real-time spectrum analyzers RSA3000. The new series includes 4 models: with maximum 3.0 GHz frequency (RSA3030 and RSA3030-TG) and 4.5 GHz (RSA3045 and RSA3045- TG). Similar to RSA5000 the new series uses innovative UltraReal technology which allows real-time capture of signals with 9.3 μs minimum duration (7.45 μs as an option) in up to 10 MHz band (40 MHz as an option).

Some time ago «NPP Eliks» ÑJSC company got the request from one of its long-term partner to supply low cost and at the same time high-performance oscilloscopes for the organization production line. Earlier the organization had used Tektronix TDS2012C oscilloscopes which fully met the customer’s requirements. But the progress always goes forward and with time there have come new oscilloscope models which have the similar or higher specifications and sometimes even lower price. Therefore the specialists of Eliks company offered several scopes of the same class and demonstrated the detailed presentations letting the customer make the right choice…

Targets of measurement tasks form the definition of «uncertainty». At the moment the revision of Guide to the expression of uncertainty in measurement (GUM) keeps more broaden interpretation of this term but anyway the problems of uncertainty conception, model structure and definitional uncertainty, are still considered open and require more attentive investigation. Professor Levin S. shares his point of view upon this problem in his new article.

Tektronix Inc., a leading worldwide provider of measurement solutions, released a new series of mixed signal oscilloscopes MSO 6. Official announcement of the device was on July 17 but the company specialists had introduced the new oscilloscope earlier at Tektronix press-conference. New MSO 6 series oscilloscope has 4 analog channels, 25 GSa/s on all channels, low noise level and the bandwidth up to 8 GHz! More specifications are within the present article.

Àdvanced and most accurate temperature calibrator series with the widest available temperature range. One of its great features is the patent pending DLC system for perfect temperature uniformity in the insert — even when calibrating large sensors or many sensors at a time. The RTC Series also feature inputs for intelligent reference sensor and sensor-under-test as well as active dual- or triple-zone temperature control that ensures excellent temperature homogeneity in the well. Seven models of RTC-R series calibrators cover the temperature range from –100 to 700 °C, while exhibiting up to ±0,04 °C accuracy and up to ±0,005 °C stability. More details are provided in the article prepared by Artvik company — the exclusive distributor of AMETEK Sensors, Test & Calibration company for over 25 years.

Signal integrity is the primary measure of signal quality. Signal integrity impacts all oscilloscope measurements. Oscilloscopes with superior signal integrity attributes provide a better representation of your signals under test, while those with poor signal integrity attributes show a poorer representation. This difference impacts engineers’ ability to gain insight, understand, debug, and characterize designs.

Fundamentally, jitter is any unwanted deviation in signal edge timing from where it should be. Jitter is a fact of life in the design of embedded systems and communication links. As such, for systems to operate reliably under a broad range of conditions, thorough characterization of jitter is a must.

The main target of Federal Law 102 dated from June 26, 2008 «On ensuring uniformity of measurements» is to protect the rights and legitimate interests of citizens, society and the government from the negative consequences of inadequate measurement results. Therefore there should be certain procedures controlling the measurements. Professor S. Levin dedicated the present article to the statistical procedure of control at high-precision measurements

The experiences made starting from 1986 up to 2014 showed that the estimations of the fundamental gravitational constant «G» have got different results. That could happen due to the incorrect confidential intervals taken which caused the discrepancy between the estimations. Further on such estimation discrepancy was called «metrological and scientific deadlock». Professor Levin S. suggests to take a closer look at this problem in the present article.
