Keysight's El Segundo Cal Labs Open House 09.13.17
« on: September 09, 2017, 07:01:41 AM »
Hi guys,

Posted this in General Chat but it probably would have been better here.  Is anyone from here going?

Cheers,
Ruairi



Copied from the email (I can't find a direct link online)


When: Wednesday, September 13, 2017.  Doors open at 8 a.m.
Where: Keysight Technologies, 2364 Alaska Ave, El Segundo, CA 90245

– See test systems in action during a facility tour
– Attend seminars on mmWave, Measurement Accuracy and non-Keysight Calibrations
– Bring your questions and meet Keysight’s calibration technicians and metrologists
– Enjoy breakfast, lunch and refreshments

Reserve your seat today. All are welcome, but space for the seminars is limited.

8:00 a.m. – Welcome Breakfast

9:10 a.m. – Guided Lab Tour
Keysight’s experts will provide a walking tour of our El Segundo calibration lab. Test stations include RF/Microwave, Mass, Force, Torque, Dimensional, Optical, Antennae, Temperature, and many more. If it measures, weighs, verifies, transmits, or signals, we can calibrate it.

10:30 a.m. – Mitigating Risk through Calibrations
Jose Luis Macedo, Keysight's Services Marketing Engineer, will explore what measurement risk is and the key drivers behind it. He will explain exactly what calibration is, how it mitigates risk and the different calibration deliverables.

11:30 a.m. – Lunch

12:30 p.m. – Challenges Supporting Non-Keysight Products
Jon Kim, Keysight's R&D Section Manager, will discuss challenges in developing cal procedures for non-Keysight products. He will cover the breadth and depth of measurement products, ensuring measurement integrity is comparable to Keysight products (measurement quality, adequate transfer standards, measurement uncertainty) and ensuring Keysight is able to develop procedures and deliver services consistently, worldwide.

1:30 p.m. – mmWave Challenges and Calibration
Scott Leithem, Keysight's Services Application Marketing Engineer, will address some of the measurement challenges that are faced when working with mmWave frequencies. He will also discuss the importance of calibration at mmWave frequencies, including capabilities and best practices.

2:30 p.m. – Keysight Services - What's next
Rob Hansen, Keysight's Regional Sales Manager, will discuss the acceleration of technology adoption, and how Keysight's broad Services offerings and deep domain expertise can help you achieve your business objectives.

Excellent event at Keysight today.  Unfortunately video and pics were not allowed but the setups were very interesting indeed.  I must have seen thirty 3458a!

What impressed me most were the people, there was some real passion and obvious pride in the work.

It was interesting to get an insight into Keysight's real business and the scale of the Calibration operation alone was amazing.  The event today was targeted at the Aerospace and Defense industries primarily.

But the real question is could you bring your own multimeter to check against one of those HP 3458A ? ;D

What a great opportunity to go to such an open house.
There is a really nice video online about the Keysight El Segundo Lab

I wish!  I have a few pieces that I'd like to get done soon, would have loved even a discount voucher.  As I said though one man operations are not the target market, this was very much aimed at decision makers in large accounts.

Impressive that you spotted this as a ESI PRT-73
But how do you know it is a ENILABS unit?

I was surprised to see such high voltage stuff in a Keysight calibration facility.

Thank you!  ;D  I can be an extremely observant person, at times.  There is a little white sticker towards the top, kind of off right of center.  It says 'LES180' and is the asset tag of ENILABS.

The event included four slideshow presentations (as mentioned in the first post):
 * Keysight Services - Mitigating Risk
 * Challenges Supporting Non-Keysight Products
 * MmWave Challenges and Calibration
 * Keysight Services - What is Next

The files are too big to upload here, so I used a free upload website. If you have a better host, I encourage you to mirror the files.
