Connectify’s free hotspot software has been valuable to the millions of users who have downloaded it to-date. Now, with the launch of Connectify Pro, the company is aiming to make their application essential software for students returning to college.

Today’s college students have expanded the back-to-school checklist. Gaming consoles, tablets, and laptops are now must-have items for life on campus. However, most U.S. college and university residence halls still provide only one Ethernet port per student, per room, which leaves freshmen who arrive with an Xbox 360, iPad, and laptop, in for a rude awakening. With Connectify, students can turn their laptop into a secure, Wi-Fi hotspot, and easily share their available Internet connection with any Wi-Fi-enabled device.

While Connectify Lite can solve many of the frustrating network issues in college dorms, the value-added functionality of Connectify Pro is sure to be useful in resolving a wider-variety of problems on campus. Therefore, Connectify is pleased to offer a free, one-semester Connectify Pro license to any student who provides a valid .edu email address at Read the rest of this entry »

LeCroy Corporation announced the launch of an extension to their signal integrity product line: Signal Integrity Studio (SI Studio). SI Studio is an add-on to the LeCroy SPARQ application software, and can work either in conjunction with a SPARQ series network analyzer or as standalone software.

Affordable Signal Integrity Analysis, Modeling and Simulation

SI Studio is targeted to signal integrity engineers who want the ability to measure, model and simulate systems that are described by S-parameters in a single affordable software package. The software rapidly analyzes eye diagram behavior and jitter decomposition characteristics of a serial data channel. Users can measure the S-parameters on an attached LeCroy SPARQ Signal Integrity Network Analyzer, or import a Touchstone file from a VNA or other S-parameter modeling or simulation tool. Users select to emulate or de-embed the channel, configure a simulated serial data signal with impairments and pre-emphasis or de-emphasis, and model the equalization used in their receiver.  An eye diagram is created given the above configuration, and eye and jitter analyses are performed and results displayed.
