Agilent Technologies has introduced the E5063A PCB Analyzer for printed circuit board impedance test in manufacturing. It offers technology breakthroughs in terms of accuracy and repeatability and reproducibility (R&R). The analyzer also provides a dedicated user interface with broader language support, and more robustness against electrostatic discharge for PCB manufacturing environments.
Tighter impedance tolerance is a direct result of increasing data rates and more accurate impedance test solutions for PCB manufacturing are now required to achieve signal integrity. The E5063A PCB Analyzer has been developed to meet that demand and provides advanced error-correction methods in order to enhance measurement accuracy and R&R. These enhancements are intended to help improve yield for PCB impedance testing.
The ESD protection circuit now available on the E5063A PCB Analyzer also helps overcome the serious ESD damage that traditional PCB measurement solutions can encounter. The highly robust architecture of the E5063A protects the instrument from ESD damage, minimising downtime and repair.
“In addition to enhancements that go beyond traditional test solutions, we are now able to offer a solution at an affordable price,” said Akira Nukiyama, vice president and general manager, Agilent’s Component Test Division. “Continuous achievements in high-speed digital applications and uncompromising expertise in RF measurements enable us to achieve these breakthroughs with the E5063A PCB Analyzer.”
