Industry’s Smallest Solder-in Probe Head for High Performance Oscilloscopes

first_imgKeysight has introduced the industry’s smallest solder-in probe head for high performance oscilloscopes, optimized for modern high-speed devices, the MX0100A InfiniiMax micro probe head.The size of electronic devices continues to shrink, resulting in smaller pads and narrower pitch spacing. Additionally, as data rates for applications such as DDR memory increase, conventional probing pads work as a stub, becoming a source for electromagnetic interference (EMI). As a result, customers are actively seeking high density, small geometry solutions for probing modern electronic technologies to analyze and measure signals without interference.Keysight’s new InfiniiMax micro probe head is a micro solder-in head for use with the company’s InfiniiMax I/II probe amplifiers and is designed to access small geometry target devices. The lead wires can be adjusted to accommodate targets from 0 mm to 7 mm apart. When used in conjunction with Keysight’s 1169B 12 GHz InfiniiMax II probe amplifier, the MX0100A delivers up to full 12 GHz bandwidth. Offering the best probe loading performance in its class (0.17 pF, 50 kΩ differentially), the extremely low input capacitance of the MX0100A minimizes the probe loading effect and maximizes signal integrity when measuring high-speed signals.Existing oscilloscope probe head solutions available today are even larger than the devices being tested in some cases. This makes signal probing access a continual challenge for modern electronic technologies. Unlike conventional solder-in probe heads in this class, Keysight specifically designed this micro probe to be less than half the size of existing solder-in probe heads for high density, fine pitch devices. It is the first, and only, of its kind on the market today, according to Keysight.last_img read more

Dasilva enjoying his game after injury comeback

first_img“I’m enjoying my football again,” the 21-year-old defender told the club website ahead of this weekend’s away game at Wigan Athletic.“Obviously I was out for a while, nearly five months so it’s been a bit of a frustrating time for me but it’s good to be back out there with the boys.”Fresh from the squad’s mini break ahead of Saturday’s trip to the DW Stadium, Dasilva continued: “Everyone is relaxed, there’s good morale and everyone is on it so it should be good going into the weekend.“Wigan this Saturday, we know it will be a tough game, every game is a tough game and that’s how we approach every weekend. We take it game by game knowing that we’re a good team, knowing our qualities and what we are capable of. We just focus on us and make sure we’re at our best.“We’re always confident, that’s the type of squad we have here. Our confidence stays the same. We know what we need to do, just focus on that and soon it will pay off.”SECURE YOUR MATCH TICKET The left-back had been out of action since the opening day of the season after suffering a lower leg stress fracture.He returned to action with 45 minutes against Charlton Athletic on Boxing Day and hasn’t looked back since.last_img read more

Match ban for senior official, two players

first_imgBy Fidelis Sukina A senior official with the Enga Mioks team has been suspended from the remaining 18 matches of the 2018 Digicel Cup season. Competition manager Stanley Hondina made the revelations at a press conference yesterday. Two others have also been suspended. Joseph Kipi was suspended for using threatening words during the Mioks and Waghi Tumbe match in Wabag last weekend. “Joseph Kipi is the assistant team manager for the Mioks. He used some threatening words during the game and the match review committee also had some reports of him doing the same last year on two occasions and was put on notice. This time the match review committee and the judiciary have stopped him from all remaining 18 matches in the 2018 season. Their franchise manager Sam Koi was cited of saying some words but the match review committee saw that it did not warrant any suspension and was given a strongly worded warning letter. “This will send a message to those that think they are smart to talk offensively to the referee whether it is an official or a player. There is no room for that the game has moved on from that … our mindset and attitude has to change,” he said. Hondina also pointed out two other incidences that have seen the suspension of two players – one from Waghi Tumbe and the other from Lae Tigers team. “A late tackle from Waghi Tumbe Mosley Tika on Enga Mioks’ Roger Laka, was reviewed by the committee as a grade three reckless high tackle according to the Judiciary code of procedure which seeds him take on 400 demerit points which means for every 99 points it’s a one-week match ban so he has 400 points but with an early guilty plea that removes 100 points, so he will have to serve three weeks suspension, but his points will carry over. “The game in Port Moresby we had incidences where players and officials were verbally attacking the referee after the game. We have systems and processes in place. If you are unhappy with the performance of the referee, there a proper channels and procedures in place but do not face off with the referee. “Paul Kambi from the Tigers was not playing but was part of the team and said some abusive words to the referee and was reviewed and charged with a detrimental conduct charge which is a charge for an incident outside of the field. It was grade two charge which is 225 points and with an early guilty plea that removes 100 points he will serve a match suspension and his points will carry over. “This incident happened outside the field but we won’t be letting it go he is part of the team and is a registered player. “The Wahgi Tumbe and the Snax Tigers have accepted the charges but the Mioks are yet to come back to us and they have 24 hours to do so,” Hondina said.last_img read more

Cold climate runners feel the heat

first_imgROAD RUNNERS The start of 2018 has seen remarkably cool weather for Port Moresby Road Runners and that phenomenon continued at the Rainbow courses at Gerehu on Saturday afternoon. Conditions were breezy and benign and gentle, just as it has been for all but a handful of Saturdays. That’s according to the locals. But if you ask those who have arrived on the scene from cold climates in recent times you will get a different opinion. Michael Entwhistle hails from Australia’s national capital, Canberra, where it can get down to minus eight degrees with little effort at this time of the year. He had only his second hit-out with Road Runners on Saturday. His debut run was in the Taurama Ten Miler the previous Sunday morning when he ran a startling second behind Skene Kiage. On Saturday in the 8.6-kilometre event he was again second behind Kiage (32 minutes, 53 seconds). Again he was not that far out of the picture, finishing in 34 minutes flat. The pundits are pondering over what he might be capable of once he acclimatises. Hamish Nickson had his Road Runners debut on Saturday. He is from Canada, a place that makes Canberra look like the tropics. He felt the sting of the heat and humidity while watching the locals don their cardigans and hoodies. Hamish is no slouch, however. He motored around the two-lap course in 41.59 to record ninth place. Ed Faber is an Englishman of distinction. He has been a Road Runners regular for the last six months. He is slowly acclimatising. But the process can take several years for some. He ran a solid 54.48 to bag 15th place. For the rest of the bunch of 64 who completed one of the three courses on offer the conditions were as pleasant as can be. Joshua John was the first boy home in the 2-km dash in 8 minutes and 30 seconds. Elizabeth Toua brought the girls home first in 11.09, followed by Delilah George (11.27), Naomi Titus (13.02), Irene Novulu (13.58) and Caroline Aitsi (15.37). Walo Bevan is holding down second place behind James Gurumi in the Endurance Challenge and opted for the middle distance 4.3-km event which he won in 17.35 after being pushed all the way by Jim Areng (17.03). Falyn Buda was the first female in 23.23 from Priscilla Aitsi (27.05), Josephine Henry, Lomba Takuna (both 30.16), Judy Sanata (31.08) and Natasha Posho (32.55). There are four other Saturday meets in June. Next Saturday is at Lego Land, Konedobu. The June 16 will be at Koroboro School, Korobosea. The June 23 at Saraga Market. And the final Saturday, the June 30, will be at Port Moresby Grammar School. Whatever the weather the show always goes on at Road Runners. All joggers, walkers and runners are welcome.last_img read more

Florida AD heads home, McElwain still in Colorado

first_imgGAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Athletic director Jeremy Foley is headed back to Florida. Colorado State’s Jim McElwain might be right behind him.Foley left Fort Collins on Wednesday after nearly a day of negotiating with McElwain, and both schools were mum about any decisions regarding Florida’s opening head-coaching position.The Gators released an ambiguous statement saying, “We’ve had very productive conversations with Coach McElwain and his wife Karen and those continue.”Foley and several key staff members boarded a charter plane and returned to Gainesville. McElwain and his wife stayed behind. Florida even posted a picture of the cockpit on Twitter, having some fun after the plane was tracked across the country Tuesday and Wednesday.It could be that McElwain wanted to tell his assistants and his players that he was leaving before the Gators announced the hiring. Another charter plane left Fort Collins shortly after Foley’s and headed to Tuscaloosa, Alabama, where McElwain’s two youngest children are attending college. It’s unclear if that plane was picking them up and carrying them to Gainesville.Foley is looking to replace Will Muschamp, who was fired Nov. 16.McElwain emerged as the top target, but the $7.5 million buyout in his contract could be a sticking point. Florida is hoping to negotiate a lower settlement with the Gators on the hook for about $8 million to pay off Muschamp and his staff.Foley has said little publicly about the search since outlining several requirements for Muschamp’s replacement. He wanted his next coach had to have high integrity, character and needed to be a fit at Florida.The 52-year-old McElwain was born in Montana and spent much of his coaching career out west. But he also has NFL experience, Southeastern Conference ties and a track record of success on the offensive side of the ball.McElwain is finishing his third season at Colorado State. He led the Rams to a 10-2 record and was named the Mountain West Conference’s coach of the year Tuesday.His offense ranks 13th nationally, averaging 498 yards a game.McElwain took over a program that went 3-9 for three consecutive seasons (2009-11), but has enjoyed a quick turnaround since his arrival. The Rams went 4-8 in 2012 and 8-6 last year before this season’s breakthrough performance. They have wins against rival Colorado and Boston College in 2014.last_img read more
