RS Components introduces class-leading function/arbitrary generators for test and design engineers

Launch of TGF3000 series marks 40th anniversary of business relationship between RS and Aim-TTi

LONDON, UK, 23 February, 2018 – RS Components (RS), the trading brand of Electrocomponents plc (LSE:ECM), the global distributor for engineers, has announced the launch of two new products from leading test and measurement company Aim-TTi (Thurlby Thandar Instruments). The TGF3000 series of function/arbitrary generators ( https://uk.rs-online.com/web/c/?searchTerm=np-tgf3000-0318_uk&searchType=Offers&dr=N ) delivers class-leading performance and unrivalled value for money.

The launch also celebrates the working partnership between RS and Aim-TTi, which has been ongoing now for 40 years. During this time, Aim-TTi has built a reputation for innovation and enhancement and is one of the leading producers of general-purpose electronic test instruments and laboratory power supplies in Europe.

The TGF3000 series is the latest function/arbitrary waveform generator series and delivers a frequency capability of up to 160MHz, combined with two identical full-performance channels that can operate as independent generators or in coupled or tracking modes. The series also delivers precise channel-to-channel phase control with a resolution of 0.001°.

The series offers a wide range of built-in waveforms along with custom arbitrary waveforms that can be used at sample speeds up to 800-MS/s with replay rates up to 80MHz. The units also come with PC-based arbitrary waveform generation and editing software.

Other features include high resolution performance and the capability to generate low jitter pulses as well as wide-bandwidth white noise. In addition, an extensive array of modulations is available with gated, burst and sweep modes that are able to use either internal or external trigger sources.

On the launch of the new TGF3000 series, Mark Edwards, Managing Director at Aim-TTi, said: “Going back to 1978 when we first began working together with the launch of the PL series of digital power supplies, through the Thurlby Thandar merger in the late 1980s and beyond, our relationship with RS has always been a highly synergistic one. It has continued to evolve to deliver the benefits from our cooperation and the highest possible levels of service to engineers who are working in product design and development, and bench test environments.”

Two models are available in the TGF3000 series: the TGF3162, which is a 160MHz generator; and the TGF3082, which is an 80MHz generator. Both are now shipping from RS in the EMEA and Asia Pacific regions.

Insights on StarRC Standalone Netlist Reducer

Sponsored by Synopsys

With the ever-growing size of extracted netlists, parasitic optimization is key to achieve practical simulation run times. Key trade-off for any netlist reducer is accuracy vs netlist size. StarRC Standalone Netlist reducer provides the flexibility to optimize your netlist on a per net basis. The user has total control of trading accuracy of some nets versus netlist optimization - yet another feature from StarRC to provide flexibility to the designer.

Use Configurable Digital IO To Give Your Industrial Controller the Edge

Sponsored by Maxim Integrated

As factories get bigger, centralized industrial process control has become difficult to manage. While there have been attempts to simplify the task, it remains unwieldy. In this design solution, Maxim briefly reviews the centralized approach before looking at what potential changes edge computing will bring to the factory floor. They also show a digital IO IC that allows for smaller, more adaptable programmable logic controllers (PLCs) more suited to this developing architecture.

Thermocouple Temperature Sensor Solution

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and Microchip

When it comes to temperature monitoring and management, industrial applications can be extremely demanding. With temperatures that can range from 270 to 3000 C, consumer-grade temperature probes just don’t cut it. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Ezana Haile of Microchip technology about using thermocouples for temperature monitoring in industrial applications.
