Quantifying SF6 and PCBs with Nexis GC-2030

Quantifying SF6 and PCBs with Nexis GC-2030
Shimadzu’s technology and expertise in gas sampling has enabled it to develop a bespoke Nexis GC-2030 for Celtic Recycling in Newport, Gwent, allowing the company to introduce GC screening of reclaimed and recycled SF6 gas, a service that no other company in the UK is currently able to offer. At the same time, the new system increased the laboratory’s capacity for the analysis of polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) in insulating oils.

Flying probe test system handles oversized pcbs

Flying probe test system handles oversized pcbs
The range of Flying Probe test systems at atg Luther & Maelzer has been extended with a line for test areas of up to 40in. width. The oversized systems complement the standard line which can load boards with sizes of up to 27in. width. Special network technology and aerospace applications are driving the demand for high test coverage and 4-wire testing (Kelvin test) for large PCBs.

Software option protects FPGA designs

Software option protects FPGA designs
A Security Key Programming software option that allows programming of a 256-bit AES key for Altera Cyclone V FPGAs has been released by Goepel electronic. It activates the design security in the FPGA, thus bitstreams can no longer be analysed. This protects the FPGA design against re-engineering, cloning and copying.
