Keysight Technologies Exhibits Latest Innovative Battery Performance Test Solutions at Productronica 2017

Keysight's technical experts will demonstrate new manufacturing test solutions for automotive, network communications and computing


  • Cell and battery performance test solution characterizes cells under charge and discharge conditions—matches the actual application in record time for faster time-to-market
  • Latest automotive Ethernet design and test solutions using advanced software—boosts measurement efficiency for various on-board applications
  • Restriction of hazardous substances (RoHS)-compliant in-circuit test applications and latest boundary scan software—offers comprehensive manufacturing test coverage for high-complexity printed circuit board assemblies

Keysight Technologies, Inc. announced it will exhibit broad manufacturing test solutions to help engineers achieve uncompromised product quality and safety in the energy, automotive electronics, network communications and computing industries at Productronica 2017 (, Hall A1, Booth 576, Messe München, Germany, Nov. 14–17.

Keysight’s new solutions for empowering future technology development include the innovative BT2152A Self-Discharge analyzer. The analyzer leads the industry in reducing the time required to discern good versus bad Li-Ion cell self-discharge performance, and dramatically reduces work-in-process inventory, working capital costs, and facilitates faster time-to-market. Keysight will also showcase its new BT2200 customizable cell forming platform, which includes software and power supplies for charge and discharge measurement.
