Sanata-Tech from St. Petersburg, Russia Joins Smart Tweezers Sales Force in Eastern Europe

Toronto, Ontario (PRWEB) October 29, 2013

Canadian Siborg Systems Inc. and Sanata-Tech From St. Petersburg, Russia have agreed to join their efforts in marketing devices of Smart Tweezers LCR-meter family including the latest budget model LCR-Reader in quickly expanding Customs Union countries including Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan.

Currently the Customs Union is expanding beyond the former Soviet Union countries, participation of India, Turkey and Siria are being considered. At a summit on October 29, 2013 held in Minsk, Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan confirmed their intention to form the Eurasian Economic Union in 2015, on the basis of the Customs Union. Subsequently, Turkey, India, and even Syria could join this new alliance, according to the leaders.

Sanata-Tech is a supplier in Eastern Europe specializing in supplying soldering equipment (Hakko), electrical test equipment and workplace furniture and hand tools (Viking).

"Major portion of our clients are electronic companies dealing with Printed Circuit Boards (PCB)," says Natalia Petrova, CEO at Sanata-Tech, "Any person using soldering equipment finds Smart Tweezers LCR-meter very efficient in testing and characterization of Surface-Mount Devices and it is an indispensable tool for PCB debugging and repair."

LCR-Reader, a successor of Smart Tweezers LCR-meter ST-5, are designed for measuring SMD components as small as 0201 form-factor or about 0.3 mm size. This type of devices allow to measure in addition to the capacitance, equivalent series resistance (ESR) or dissipation factor D, in addition to inductance, resistance or Q. ST-5 LCR-meter can also be used for a continuity and diode test.

Now you have a choice of buying the original Smart Tweezers or LCR-Reader, a new budget model of a tweezer type LCR-meter. A summary of LCR-Reader and Smart Tweezers comparison of feature is avalaible in this Table. In a nut shell, the main difference is price, size and accuracy. Smart Tweezers ST-5 is a certified LCR-meter for professionals with a basic accuracy of 0.2%, supplied with a NIST Traceable Calibration Certificate. On the other hand, LCR-Reader outperforming previous models of Smart Tweezers ST-1 to ST-3. With a basic accuracy of 1%, price under $ 200 and weight of 1 Oz it is positioned as a consumer's choice LCR-Meter. It only uses 0.5 Vrms test signal thus limiting its application for ceramic capacitors. It is well known that test signal lower then 1 Vrms results in a underestimated capacitance values for ceramic capacitors, (e.g. see ST-2 User's Manual on p. 16).

The new model, LCR-Reader, is about two times lighter than previous Smart Tweezers models, and is powered by rechargeable Li-Ion battery. Its basic accuracy is about 1% which exceeds specs for models ST-1, ST-2 and ST-3. It has a simplified control by just one button that turns the device on and changes the operation mode.

The following features are abandoned compared to ST-5: component sorting, automatic offset correction,diode and continuity test. The most important drawback of LCR-Reader is the level of test signal which is 0.5 V rms that does not allow to use it for ceramic capacitors, similarly to ST-1, ST-2 and ST-3 it gives a lower capacitance value.

Sofant Smart Antenna Technology Doubles Battery Life of Smart Devices

(PRWEB) January 07, 2013

Sofant Technologies will reveal revolutionary smart antenna and tunable RF solutions in Las Vegas this week after winning their place at CES 2013 in the UK Trade & Investment (UKTI) competition for the worlds next big thing.

Consuming 90% less energy and predicted to double battery life, this is the first time miniaturised smart antenna technology has been used in mobile devices and could eradicate some of the biggest barriers to smartphone development including short battery life, dropped calls and poor signal quality.

Antenna technology has not kept pace with the constant advances in functionality and performance of smartphones. Additionally, the current rollout of new communication protocols such as LTE and 4G means ever-increasing pressure on existing antennae.

Sergio Tansini, CEO of Sofant, explains: Battery life and connectivity are key problems for the global mobile device market. Antennae account for 50% of power consumption when a device is on standby and even more during calls. Because antenna technology has barely moved in recent years the antenna continues to act as a bottleneck to data transfer.

In reality this means that every new generation of smartphone actually performs less well than its predecessor. Sofant has developed the technology capable of transforming the performance and user experience of mobile devices forever.

Headquartered in Scotland, Sofant has developed three core technologies comprising RF MEMS, antenna and software. This powerful combination provides a steerable and focussed antenna - SmartAntennaTM - that can lock onto the best signal available at any given time.

By improving the rate of data transfer SmartAntennaTM provides a higher level of connectivity than conventional antennae. It also consumes 90% less energy, boosting battery life.

As well as benefiting individual mobile devices, Smart AntennaTM will also reduce network congestion caused by weak signals and dropped connections, diminishing the need for more base stations.

SmartAntennaTM will also address other mobile device constraints including suitability for large numbers of frequency bands.

Together with Sofants tunable RF MEMS based modules - AvtoRFTM - and Sofant Intelligent Software SISTM the companys technology enables superior performance, reliable connections, lower RF power consumption and better signal quality, eliminating issues such as dead zones.

The technologies can be licensed individually or as a single smart micro antenna system.

The International Consumer Electronics Show (CES 2013) is being staged in Las Vegas between 8-11 January and will feature 3,000 exhibitors unveiling the latest consumer technology products and services across 1.85 million net square feet of space. The exhibitions organisers believe that wireless technologies such as Sofants will be the centre of attention at this years event:

Wireless convergence is set to unleash a plethora of real world, next-gen wireless technologies at the 2013 CES, says Karen Chupka, Senior Vice President of International CES. Half of the fun of the 2013 CES will be seeing the news announcements, experiencing the latest wireless technologies firsthand and learning more about whats to come in our keynotes, sessions and TechZones.

Visit Sofant in the Tech-Zone, booth #73508, 3rd Level of The Venetian, Eureka Park.

Smart Tweezers ST5: LCR-meter for Surface Mount Technology

Waterloo, Ontario, Canada (PRWEB) August 16, 2012

A new model of the world-renowned LCR-meter Smart Tweezers from Siborg Systems Inc was released giving an exciting answer to the old problem of testing and trouble-shooting Surface Mount Devices.

Surface-mount technology (SMT) is a dominating method for constructing electronic equipment in which the components are mounted directly onto the surface of printed circuit boards (PCBs). Such components are usually referred to as Surface Mount Devices (SMD). Currently the industry has largely replaced the older through-hole technology fitting components with wire leads into holes on a PCB. Often both technologies are used on the same PCB so that components not suited to surface mounting such as transformers and heat-sinked power semiconductor devices can be placed on the PCB.

An SMT component is usually small and has either small leads or no leads at all. One of the big problems with SMT components is that it is usually too small to be labeled. Thus, you can easily lose track of parts and their values.

This is where Smart Tweezers come-in handy. With the use of only one hand, this lightweight device quickly evaluates all passive types of SMT components, such as Resistors, Capacitances and Inductances.

The Smart Tweezers LCR-meter automatically determines the type of component, resistor, capacitor, or inductor, and selects the proper range and signal frequency for the highest accuracy measurement. Using a small graphics display, the Smart Tweezers LCR-meter clearly displays the component type, measurement results, and test conditions used to determine the results.

"The main advantage of Smart Tweezers is virtually instantaneous and highly accurate evaluation of SMT components as small as 0.3 mm," says Michael Obrecht, R&D director at Siborg. "This accuracy level of about 0.2% is only available from expensive bench-type LCR-meters that require significant efforts in setting-up the measurements."

Smart Tweezers is an LCR-meter in a set of tweezers, with each of the tweezers two tines acting as a probe. The LCR-meter is designed for a production line component evaluation, on-board impedance testing, and SMD components sorting. With automatic recognition of measurement mode (L, C and R), the tool is especially suitable for identifying SMDs.

Fully-automatic LCR-measurements, including automatic recognition of measurement modes (L, C, and R) and the range of measurement, allows the operator to focus exclusively on the component under test. As a result testing, sorting and evaluation of components becomes more efficient and cost-effective.

The primary display shows the main impedance reading. The secondary display (on top) shows the present reading of additional parameters (such as parasitic resistance) and measurement. For example, ESR value can appear in the secondary display while capacitor value appears in the primary display.

The Bar Graph provides an analog indication of the measured input. For most functions the primary display shows 5 digits. In addition, the Smart Tweezer allows to test continuity and diodes. Internal beeper sounds for resistance readings below threshold, or to indicate a momentary open circuit.

Compared to its present rivals, their predecessor Smart Tweezers offers a significantly higher accuracy and more features, most importantly, Inductance measurements:
