Hitachi High-Tech Analytical Science today introduces SpArcfire, an intuitive operating software already available across Hitachi’s stationary spark OES (optical emission spectrometer) range, to its mobile OES analyzer range. The new interface, optimized for touchscreens, delivers a greatly improved user experience, maximizing speed and efficiency for both simple and complex metals analysis tasks. This intuitive new software removes the need for extensive training or highly experienced operators.
With SpArcfire software, Hitachi OES spectrometers can be easily deployed to complete all metals analysis tasks, including measuring unknown materials, identifying and verifying grades, creating customizable report templates, and performing and evaluating accuracy tests with control samples. Advanced users can edit and modify regression data to extend calibration ranges. SpArcfire software can also verify the status of the instrument, providing real-time monitoring and diagnostics on all systems parameters such as temperature, pressure and voltage inputs and outputs. This ensures essential analysis equipment can be kept operating at peak performance.
SpArcfire offers a range of additional features to make analysis quicker and easier:
For the advanced user, SpArcfire provides a powerful regression software and a matrix manager in order to extend/modify your existing calibration curves and create methods on your own. The Sensor Scan application, with its scan manager, future-proofs the instrument and allows it to deliver additional qualitative analysis.
Michael Molderings, Product Manager, said: “The objective of any industrial analysis is to get results quickly and keep production moving. Our new SpArcfire software on our mobile OES products will make metals analysis with OES much more intuitive and faster, no matter if you’re an experienced or inexperienced user. For mobile and portable OES analyzers, the SpArcfire software is an exciting cutting-edge development helping businesses unlock the power of analysis.”
SpArcfire software is now available across our optical emission product range.
Keysight Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: KEYS), a leading technology company that helps enterprises, service providers and governments accelerate innovation to connect and secure the world, has added two new test solutions to its growing automotive portfolio - Radar Target Simulator and Advanced Automotive Ethernet software – which help automotive industry engineers, designers and manufacturers develop high-quality, high-performance products that improve safety in any driving conditions and enable emerging advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS).
Rapid developments in autonomous vehicles and demand for greater safety features is fueling the need for sensitive and accurate automotive radar technology. Leveraging its expertise in radar test technology, Keysight now offers a new Radar Target Simulator (RTS) to help automotive electronics manufacturers confidently simulate radar targets in various realistic scenarios.
Keysight's new RTS performs multi-target, multi-angle testing for radar modules in a lab environment. The solution delivers fast, accurate and reliable results that balance throughput and quality. Design and verification engineers can quickly validate the performance of radar products, while manufacturing and design validation engineers are able to simulate multiple objects at variable distances. By allowing users to bring a real-world test environment into their lab, Keysight's RTS delivers substantial time and cost savings.
"On the way toward autonomous driving, radar module design isn't just a luxury feature, it is a requirement. Accuracy of those devices cannot be compromised," said Thomas Goetzl, vice president and general manager of Keysight's Automotive and Energy Solutions business unit. "Keysight has leveraged technology from our vast experience in RF design to deliver a multi-target remote head that enables radar module developers to overcome design and performance verification challenges."
Addressing the Standards that Govern Automotive Ethernet
Next-generation ADAS systems require camera and radar systems with high resolution, which require increased speed and bandwidth. Automotive Ethernet enables faster data communication to meet the demands of today's vehicles and the connected vehicles of the future. However, the channel or link in a system can create a point of failure and as such must be fully tested.
To address this growing challenge, Keysight has developed a new automotive Ethernet channel test software solution to verify that information is carried, without loss or cross talk, to its intended destination.
Key features of Keysight's new automotive Ethernet channel test software solution include:
Keysight's Automotive Ethernet solutions suite provides the hardware, software, cables and accessories needed to enable compliance testing. These offerings are enhanced by newly released receiver testing software and an updated transmit compliance application that offers 4 different data rates, including the preliminary version of Multi-Gig IEEE 802.3ch, in one application – making Keysight the first to offer compliance tests for IEEE 802.3ch.
