Keysight upgrades BenchVue software
Test and measurement solutions major Keysight Technologies today announced the latest release of its BenchVue software for the PC.

The US-based technology major said BenchVue provides multiple-instrument measurement applications, data capture and solution applications, without the need for instrument programming.

The company claims that the BenchVue’s Test Flow app allows users to create automated test sequences in minutes without traditional instrument programming. The app combines BenchVue’s data capture and analysis tools with the power of a sequencer. In addition, BenchVue 3.5 supports variables, math, and for users requiring instrument programming, the integration of Command Expert Sequences, ensuring better flexibility to designers.

Keysight Technologies in a statement issued on Thursday said that BenchVue 3.5 features new apps to support signal generators, universal countersand Keysight’s FieldFox Series of handheld analyzers. With these apps, BenchVue supports over 450 Keysight instruments.

“Our latest software release further enhances the platform’s capabilities by allowing the creation of automated tests without programming. With this release, BenchVue reinforces its position as the leading software for controlling Keysight’s instruments,” said Rod Unverrich, senior software programs manager with Keysight.

BenchVue software advances the way engineers interact with their instruments and their entire bench, from initial connection to analysis completion. Engineers can plug an instrument into their PC over LAN, GPIB or USB and ensure to automatic configuration of the instrument for use in BenchVue. Engineers need not do programming or separate instrument drivers, accelerating common testing tasks. Engineers can achieve data capture and export with a few clicks.
