You can do a heck of a lot with the ADS simulation package for RF simulation and optimization, i'd be happy to win one, unless the license has expiry-that would not have value to me. I would also welcome a pair of 200MHz probes as i am updating my EDUX 1002 to 200MHz and they'd come very handy replacement to the stock 70MHz or so probes.

Edit: As to BenchVue - meh, i want knobs.

One small note: the ADS is not a perpetual license. It's ba one year time limited license.

Daniel, I think your presence here cannot be appreciated enough :)
Sure, you are a "marketing instrument", (sorry if that sounds harsh ;)) but you also try to help when possible.
I would like more companies doing marketing like that.

Thanks! I do have an EE degree, but have really enjoyed trying out the marketing thing! I always hated marketing stuff (like a good engineer should  :-DD), but later found out I just hated bad marketing!

Also, my time spent on this forum is ad hoc and not an official mandate from on-high. What can I say, you all make me feel at home :).

I can't explain why, but for some reason, while reading your response, I was overcome with a mental image and find myself compelled to share it.  I understand that Keysight is a major corporation with customers all over the world but anyway...

Keysight should really value you if they know what's good for 'em :)

It is VERY refreshing to have someone with an EE degree being in marketing.. it's quite profound how much it helps the company's image. I really like the method of taking on a teaching role to explain more complicated features in your instruments and principles in EE measurement - which at the same time is showing off the company's product and acting as effective marketing.

That is a trait that you have in common with a lot of members here - if not all.

You come across as a kindred spirit and you listen.  This is a positive starting point.

You work at Keysight - and that gives all of us a sort of vicarious satisfaction  :D  - so, of course we want to make you feel at home!

Also @bsudbrink, that picture is terrifying. It might also be printed off and pinned to my cubicle wall...

Well, my Photoshop-foo is pretty weak.  I have to say I spent a while sifting through all of the photos of you I could find, looking for one that matched the original face, in terms of pupil width, chin to mouth distance, eye to ear distance and looking in the right direction.  Also, I wanted a serious expression (you're always smiling! ^-^).

I think that the reason that it still looks a bit "pasted on" is the lighting.  I just couldn't find one of you anywhere that matched it.  I'm sure there's someone in your art department that could do a better job... just credit me with the concept.  :-+

Good luck with the weather!  Stay warm!

It's the brightness and the saturation. If they're too dissimilar, it'll look like two pictures stuck together. I tweaked the sliders for a few minutes, although it needs a lot of additional finenessing to be very convincing.

You should definitely have a Keysight swag store. A Keysight sticker on the ol' bench would look pretty good.

How about cardboard replicas of the test equipment? People could put them on their bench, giving it a touch of class.
Currently developing STM8. Past includes 6809, Z80, 8086, PIC, MIPS, PNX1302, and some 8748 and 6805.

That's a good one. It's the budget way to upgrade your bench with new Keysight "gear."

When I applied for an earlier contest, my video used a printed front panel of the prize over another instrument. Maybe that was a mistake...

Of course I did not win anything, as I had only noted on the 13th. |O
And it did have a bug - via my workplace I could enter a second application, at home not. (at the same time)
But as I already told the TEA crew, it was HPAK where I won the single useful thing ever - my first WedgeProbe.
So I'll keep trying and I would take everything except a scope, because there are only... (must not be said, suppose you know)... :box:

( HP8116A, HP3312A, HP4261A, HP5334A, HP1230A, HP466A, HP8447E, HP E2377A, HP6274B, HP6177B, HP6825A, HP7475A and 2x HP28S, ha!)

Being in the Asia-Pacific competition, I only had one chance - a race to answer a series of questions made available at a specific point in time.  I was otherwise occupied at that time - unplanned an inescapable.  I didn't think it would be worth trying two and a half hours later.   :(

I now wait to see how I fare with Dave's dumpster finds.

While I couldn't realistically expect to win anything, the event and effort put into it is very much appreciated. Thanks Keysight!

Will the list of winners of the South Asia Pacific region Wave competition be posted somewhere? It is currently not in this list https://connectlp.keysight.com/Wave_2019_Winners?cmpid=postWave2019list and was not mentioned in the Wave videos.

Oh, the "whys" of the datasheets... The information is there not to be an axiomatic truth, but instead each speck of data must be slowly inhaled while carefully performing a deep search inside oneself to find the true metaphysical sense...

Somehow I got lucky for the first time in forever and won a scope on the 11th.  I've been studying the manual ever since I found out and I'm hoping to make a thread about it when it comes in.    The email said it will take a while, though.  It gives me time to get to know it on paper first.

Huge thanks to  Daniel and all the Keysight team!!

If some of the reports from last year are anything to go on, you'll probably be able to recite the manual.
