Keysight Technologies Enables Engineers to Speed Test Development Times

New data acquisition system automates and rapidly validates designs

SANTA ROSA, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#DAQ–Keysight Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: KEYS), a leading technology company
that helps enterprises, service providers, and governments accelerate
innovation to connect and secure the world, announced the Keysight
DAQ970A data acquisition system (DAQ) to speed
test development times with rapid measurement and scan rates, expanded
measurement types and ranges, as well as simple test sequence automation.

Increasing product design complexity necessitates new and challenging
test requirements. To ensure effective testing of these complex designs,
fast measurements and data logging of multiple signal types is required.
Keysight’s DAQ970A provides test engineers with the widest range of
measurement types and ranges, fast scan rates and simplified test

Keysight’s DAQ970A leverages the company’s BenchVue
DAQ application software
to facilitate rapid creation of automated
tests, instrument control to set parameters and status alerts, and
simple analysis of measurement results. Embedded test flow capabilities
automate DAQ setups and measurements into test sequences, while a new,
intuitive graphical front panel display offers self-guiding menus that
enable test engineers to quickly perform all tasks directly from the

“Testing products with greater functionality, in less time, requires the
ability to sample more signals, faster,” said Chris Cain, vice president
of Keysight’s Electronic and Industrial Solution Group Center of
Excellence. “Precision measurements across a wide range of measurement
types is mandatory. Keysight’s DAQ970A solution enables engineers to
substantially improve design validation through automated testing
without programming, expanded measurement options, and fast scan rates.”

Keysight’s data acquisition system improves design validation and speeds
test development times with:

  • Up to 5000 readings/sec and scan rates up to 450 channels/sec
  • Focus on improved measurement accuracy via an advanced 6 ½ digit
    internal digital multimeter and auto-calibration that compensates for
    internal drifts caused by time and temperature changes
  • Comprehensive testing of a greater number of designs with expanded
    measurement capabilities and ranges for voltage (300 V), current (1µA
    DC, 100 µA AC), resistance (1000 MΩ), diode and capacitance (1 nF –
    100 µF)
  • Multiple format displays (number, bar, meter, trend chart, and
    histogram) to easily monitor measurement results
  • A new solid-state switching multiplexer module with faster scanning
    rates and longer lifespan than multiplexers with mechanical relays
