General information about test equipment of all types.
What information do you need and what factors should you take into consideration when buying a network analyzer? This guide walks you through.
In order to choose the right network analyzer for a given application, it is necessary for buyers to understand the demands of the electrical network they will be working with.
Simple electrical networks that must measure amplitude alone can use a basic SNA-type network analyzer. Moderate to complex electrical networks that require measuring amplitude properties and phase properties require a VNA-type network analyzer. Complex electrical networks that must measure harmonics require a MTA or LSNA-type network analyzer.

Test and Measurement equipment leases have grown significantly over the past few years, and are expected to continue to grow over the next few decades. We offer the lowest monthly payments, tax benefits, improved financial statements, and flexible lease-end options when you lease from MATsolutions!
While the renting services industry for electronic test equipment is not new, the economic conditions of the past few years have increased awareness about such services, and organizations across industries including aerospace and defense, communications, automotive, and industrial electronics have been more open to complement their test strategy with rental
Usually, we try to offer news and advice engineers can use, but it's back-to-school season. So today, we turn the tables and ask you: What did you do right in college? and, what would you do differently? You - our clients - have a tremendous amount of knowledge, and even more importantly, real-world engineering experience. Share it, and you'll help improve the future of engineering.
That sounds like a lofty goal, but we're engineers, after all. We aim high and follow through. And while real life doesn’t offer “do-overs,” engineers really understand the value of learning from errors.
The debate about when to select a logic analyzer or an oscilloscope is one that goes on in labs across the country. On one hand, logic analyzers allow you to capture multiple signals from digital circuits or systems and in some cases, even convert the data into information such as timing diagrams or decodes for protocols. On the other hand, oscilloscopes are tools for observing signal voltages that vary constantly and can also measure non-electrical signals like sound and convert and display them as voltages.
This month's news roundup focuses on new 3D printing technology, expansion of LTE coverage, stress-testing diameter signaling, and other interesting topics.

Test before you touch. It’s one of the first things people learn when they begin working with electricity. It’s a mantra as old as the engineering profession, and staying true to these four simple words can mean the difference between success and failure. In order to test electricity, it’s important to have the right equipment. And the “right equipment” includes low-voltage proximity testers.
How far we have come!
The use of the RF and microwave portion of the electromagnetic spectrum for communications has only been harnessed by man for about 100 years. This includes AM and FM radio broadcasts, television broadcasts, satellite and cellular communications, military and aviation applications, and more.
The importance of calibration in the maintenance of an instrument used for taking measurements is well understood by all who use this equipment. These highly sensitive instruments come with an assigned measurement tolerance and a recommendation on the calibration interval from the manufacturer, and it’s clear that failure to follow those recommendations can lead to a host of issues, including inaccurate measurements.
While there might not be a more common measuring instrument, one size definitely does not fit all when it comes to digital multimeters (DMMs).
Digital multimeters are used to perform a wide range of electrical measurements in different environments and applications, so it's important to carefully look at your options to ensure you choose the right digital multimeter for your needs.

Outsourcing your test system development project can be a savvy business decision but there are potential pitfalls you need to know about. Ask these five simple questions before you risk your project's outcome on an unknown third party.
USB oscilloscopes, which are used to observe and measure electrical signals, are becoming more popular as continual enhancements are made in performance and functionality.
This boost in oscilloscope functionality has expanded into multiple industries. We’re talking everything from OEM production lines to academic research, which is a strong indication to how far these tools have come in recent years. Still, there are some specifics to consider when opting for a USB oscilloscope.
