Quantum Parametrics and Astek Corporation recently merged. The merged company, operating as Astek Corporation, will continue to provide the same Quantum Parametrics products and services as before the merger. For more information please contact John Sherman at (719) 260-1625 Ext. 102.
Astek Corporation provides signal integrity tools, cable power test tools. and debug fixtures for IEEE-1394 Data/Stobe (DS) and IEEE-1394b Beta implementations. DS and Beta signaling have drastically different signaling characteristics; therefore, Astek offers specific test tools to meet the requirements of each one. Please remember that most 1394b PHY implementations are bilingual, therefore they support both Data/Strobe and Beta signaling. To insure your implementation meets all requirements both DS and Beta signaling should be tested.
