Andrew’s pick:

Do you feel like your family is not understanding the signals you are sending them about the gifts you want? Get them the PathWave Vector Signal Analysis software for Keysight’s Analyzers or Oscilloscopes to help them pinpoint their signal problems. This will ensure they get your hints correctly so you can get the gifts you want!

Wow! Look at Santa’s new test tools on his workbench. If he has it, then you know you want it. Perhaps, this complete set of Smart Bench Essentials instruments may end up under someone’s Christmas tree this year 😉

Gabi’s pick:

Worried about securing the most desirable gifts this Christmas? Perhaps you noticed presents were a bit sparse over the last few holiday seasons? You didn’t even get coal?! Make sure your signal is getting through to Santa with Keysight’s PNA Network Analyzer. Check the S-parameters of your Christmas list to make sure your message is transmitting clearly, so he doesn’t have to check his list twice.

Are the holiday gift-giving jitters setting in? This is the perfect gift to help…

(to the tune of Wham! Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go)

Da da da Jitter(de)bug…
Da da da Jitter(de)bug…

You take the jitter out of my life
You make my problems go away on my holiday
You take the jitter out of my design
Clock goes a tick-tick-tock ‘til my signals realign

Hook me up before you go-go
Eye gotta find the signal’s high or low
Hook me up before you go-go
I don’t want to miss it when you hit that high
Hook me up before you go-go
Eye gotta find the signal’s high or low
Hook me up before you go-go
I don’t want to miss it when you hit that high (yeah, yeah)

You make me think that I can
You help everything go according to plan
Life has never been the same
Keysight technology has changed the game

Sarah’s pick:

Have you been searching for a glorified AM/FM radio? Look no further! Keysight’s FieldFox handheld analyzer demodulates AM/FM radio signals so that you can listen to your favorite radio station. No headphones? No problem! FieldFox has a built-in speaker and a rechargeable battery that lasts four hours, so you can bring the tunes with you and get the party started no matter where you go. Oh no! Someone spilled their hot cocoa on it and your cousin’s kid threw it down the stairs?! Don’t worry! FieldFox is also waterproof and shockproof. As an added bonus, and to make you look really smart in front of your grandma, FieldFox can make precise and accurate mmWave measurements that look cool on the screen.

Be the life of the party at your next holiday shindig with the FieldFox handheld analyzer!

Albert’s pick:

Do you have friends who are always fumbling with an oscilloscope probe because they are left-handed? Finally, Keysight provides a solution to this pestering problem with the release of the new LH series of probes. The picture below shows the first of this series, N2142A-LH, which provides all the ergonomic benefits that right-handed people have enjoyed. Left-handed people can now probe confidently and with agility like never before using the LH series by Keysight.
