6-axis IMU
Instruments are available in a variety of form factors, as described
on p. 18 of our December issue. USB continues to be a popular
choice, finding use on everything from IMU evaluation boards to
vector network analyzers. (For more on the latter category, see
the article beginning on p. 6 of this issue.) Below is a sampling
of recently introduced products offering USB connectivity-with
some also offering alternatives extending from IEEE 488 to Wi-Fi.

Thales Visionix has introduced enhancements to
its NavChip Series 3, the latest in the company's
family of inertial measurement units (IMUs). The
new NavChip Series 3 allows users to choose the
optimum performance at their selected price point
from both NavChip and NavChip Series 3 Class A
and Class B parts. Specifications include Class A
bias in-run stability to 4°/hr. (typical), 5°/hr. (max.),
with an output rate of 1,000 Hz, and Class B bias
in-run stability to 5°/hr. (typical), 10°/hr. (max.)
with an output rate of 1,000 Hz. Evaluation kits
with integration software, a USB interface, and
external sync cable start at $895.

Wi-Fi oscilloscope
TiePie engineering has introduced its WiFiScope oscilloscopes, which can be used
via an Ethernet connection (LAN, Wi-Fi, or WAN) but also with a USB 2.0 or USB
3.0 connection. The built-in battery enables the WiFiScope to perform fully wireless
measurements, galvanically isolated, over long distances. USB measurements for
standalone applications and high-speed data acquisition can take place at 200 MS/s.
Combined with the Multi Channel oscilloscope software, the 250-MHz WiFiScope
WS6 (four channels) and WiFiScope WS5 (two channels) turn your PC into an
oscilloscope, spectrum analyzer, multimeter, data logger, and protocol analyzer.

Recorder for military signal

Kaelus, a supplier of PIM test-and measurementinstruments and RF conditioning solutions, has released
new functionality for its Analyzer Calibration Extender
(ACE), which now supports the range-to-fault (RTF)
module used for locating PIM and return-loss faults
in RF infrastructure. The ACE allows customers to
self-calibrate their Kaelus PIM instruments in the
field. Reducing downtime of calibration to less than
one hour, ACE extends the calibration due date by
12 months. ACE offers USB Connectivity for the
company's iPA and iTA instruments.

Pentek Inc. has announced an addition to its family
of Talon signal recording and playback systems,
the RTR 2654 26.5-GHz RF Sentinel intelligent
signal-scanning rackmount recorder. The RTR
2654 combines a Pentek Talon recording system
with a 25.6-GHz RF tuner and Pentek's Sentinel
intelligent signal-scanning software. The RTR
2654 automatically scans the RF spectrum from
800 MHz to 26.5 GHz for signals of interest and
monitors or records bandwidths up to 500-MHz
wide, making it suitable for military, security
and government intelligence (SIGINT, COMINT
and ELINT) applications. The Talon RTR 2654 is
packaged in a 4U 19-in. rack-mountable chassis,
with front-panel removable and hot-swappable
solid-state drives (SSDs), front panel USB ports,
and I/O connectors on the rear panel.
