Not so long ago we published the detailed review on AKTAKOM handheld oscilloscopes in our magazine. These are high performance measuring devices that combine the functions of several devices in one compact housing. This time we’d like to introduce a review on an absolutely new model that can be considered a handheld device because it’s actually a tablet oscilloscope with large 8" display and also a benchtop device. New AKTAKOM ADS-41õõ oscilloscope can be taken to in-the-field work but at the same time you may use it in laboratory putting it on the table. The device will stand firmly and you may easily use its control panel with one hand. More details and technical specifications can be found in the present article.

Nowadays the market of isolation testers is very wide and various. These are compact handheld devices suitable for in-the-field operation that are usually equipped with multimeter functions and also benchtop models widely used to solve laboratory and production tasks. Model which this article is dedicated to belongs to the second group. AKTAKOM AMM-2099 is a high voltage insulation tester that can be used to measure isolation resistance of semiconductors and electrical devices in laboratory terms. AMM-2099 is capable of measuring resistance from 10 kOhm up to 100 TOhm with test voltage of up to 1000 V. At the same time the measurement of current leakage is taken at 100 pA to 1 mA range. More detailed parameters can be found in the present article.

Engineers in every corner of the world are tasked with a straightforward yet incredibly complex challenge: solving the unsolvable. As if that weren’t enough, they’re also expected to solve the unsolvable faster and with fewer resources than ever before. For example, consider testing an in-home thermostat. Gone are the days of a thermostat with just a bimetallic coil. Today’s thermostat has a convergence of technology, from humidity and temperature sensors to wireless circuitry and motion sensing. The validation of this system requires a wide array of instruments, sensors, and software expertise, but where should an engineer begin?

In oscilloscopes today, making a good signal measurement is easy. But, making a great measurement takes some expertise. As edge speeds increase and voltages decrease, your signal’s margin of error gets smaller and smaller. So, making a great oscilloscope measurement could mean the difference between meeting and not meeting your design parameters.
