PSA2701T Spectrum Analyzer

The PSA2701T, made by Thurlby Thandar Instruments, is a new type of instrument that utilizes the power of a handheld computer to provide engineer the opportunity to own a powerful 2.7GHz spectrum analyzer. Weighing about a pound, PSA2701T offers sweep modes of continuous, single, peak hold and average (up to 256 sweeps) with unlimited storage for waveforms, set-ups and fully annotated screens under user defined file names.

Flashstream Flash Vector Programming System

Flashstream Flash Vector Programming System, by BPM, offers the fastest flash programming of NAND and NOR flash memory at speeds as low as 2.5% over theoretical programming minimum. This industry leading speed is due to the creation of a proprietary co-processor technology developed by BPM called Vector Engine. This technology uses a proprietary co-processor design to hardware accelerate flash memory waveforms during the programming cycle. Faster speeds are achieved through synchronous operations that eliminate the dead times when the DUT waits on the programmer. The result is programming near the theoretical limits of the silicon design — the faster the device, the faster the device is programmed.
