Saelig Company Inc. has announced the availability in North America of a PC-controlled USB 2.0 high-speed device featuring ADWG (arbitrary digital waveform generator) and logic analyzer capabilities. Made in Europe by Byte Paradigm, a leading embedded test equipment manufacturer, the GP-24100 device enables the stimulation and analysis of digital interfaces, and the streaming of data to/from a PC to 16 data lines at up to 10MHz, with 6 additional control lines for repetitive sequence generation, in/out clocking or trigger definition.

Electronic engineers now have an easy-to-use tool to access electronic systems from their favorite workstation, offering a significant productivity gain for system-on-board development.

With its 8 MByte embedded memory buffer and 100 MHz operation on all 16 digital lines, GP-24100 is a powerful general purpose, versatile PC-based test tool that complements conventional lab equipment for digital electronic system design, test and debug. It makes generating and collecting digital data to stimulate and analyze electronic systems easier, with the maximum sustained throughput via USB of up to 30MByte/s.

The supplied 8PI control panel software offers instantly-usable graphical scripting (TCL/tk) and programming (C/C++) interfaces to automate tasks and bridge between programming environments and hardware prototypes. 8PI software allows engineers to define I/O clocks, repetitive sequences, and trigger patterns; and to automate tasks or build custom applications using the TCL scripting environment or C, C++ DLLs. It can also set repetitive and cumbersome lab tasks such as controlling a DAC (digital-to-analog converter), sending a stimulus to a custom IP block in an FPGA, or creating an arbitrary stimulus and collect results.

With its ADWG / pattern generator mode of operation, GP-24100 allows engineers to generate extended depths of arbitrary digital stimuli, directly from a PC through a USB connection - create16 bit- wide arbitrary patterns at up to 100 MHz, using the huge 8MB internal memory buffer. GP-24100's Analyzer mode of operation transforms the compact test box into a simple logic analyzer to collect and analyze digital data, sampling 16 bits at up to 100 MHz and storing data in 8 Mbytes of internal memory.

Annual Salary Survey

Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.

There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
