Keysight Technologies Releases BenchVue 3.0

Keysight Technologies Releases BenchVue 3.0

Keysight Technologies has released the latest version of its BenchVue software. Version 3.0 includes a new capability to let users create custom tests.

The new Test Flow app has a drag-and-drop interface for rapid prototyping of test sequences. The application combines the power of a sequencer with the data capture and analysis tools in BenchVue.

Also added to the software is a Network Analyzer app and additional model support. This brings the total number of supported instruments to over 300. Downloads are also smaller, updates are faster and application software releases are no longer tied to platform releases, the company states.

“BenchVue has proven to be an enthusiastically accepted software tool among Keysight bench-instrument users.” says Rod Unverrich, Keysight’s senior software programs manager. “This milestone software release unlocks capabilities our customers have requested for custom test creation and sequencing. The software also provides additional flexibility for future solutions, including individual applications enabled by the BenchVue framework.”

Polaris Claims Stake in Configit A/S

Polaris Claims Stake in Configit A/S

Polaris has made a stake in Danish software company Configit A/S. The company is a supplier of business-critical software for configuration of complex products manufactured.

Configit is Polaris’ first investment in a software company. Polaris has a clear goal of investing in more software and technology companies and has therefore established an internal team with this specific focus as well as an “ecosystem” of industrial advisers, a press release states.

“I am proud to see how far we have taken Configit by ourselves. But if we are to elevate the company to an even higher level, we need a partner adding new expertise, experience with globalization and financial strength. We have received several bids from abroad, but with Polaris we are able to unite the best of two worlds: We will have a professional partner to guide us on the journey ahead, and Danish-based Polaris is furthermore a partner that better understands the company’s culture and distinctive character,” says Michael Moesgaard Andersen, a former owner of Configit.
