Getting to Know Lab Brick Part Five: Switches

Posted by Scott Blanchard on Apr 9, 2015 4:19:24 PM

High-speed switches like our Lab Brick models are integral parts of many test systems, so I’ll explain how easy it is to configure them in this blog. Lab Brick software lets you operate your switch (or switches) in four modes. Manual control mode lets you operate the switch from the computer’s display. You just select “Internal” in the Switch Control window and in the Switch Setting window select the path you want to connect.

Getting to Know Lab Brick Part Four: Attenuators

Posted by Scott Blanchard on Mar 10, 2015 11:07:49 AM

Few instrument set-ups are complete without attenuators, as without them your ability to evaluate the performance of your device under different conditions would be severely limited. Our Lab Brick attenuators combine both the performance and the configurability you need to provide a wide range of measurement flexibility, and setting them up is performed the exact same way as all of our products – from a single display. (If you're unfamiliar with our Windows-based Lab Brick software, start with the first post in this series to learn more.)

Getting to Know Lab Brick Part One: Software

In ATE systems, an instrument controller handles all the tasks associated with making everything work together. However, when you’re controlling just a few devices to accomplish a measurement task (for example), that’s usually more than you really need. But you do still need a way to control, configure, and run routines using the components, and that’s where the simple yet effective Windows-based Lab Brick software really shines.
