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).

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.

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.
