XTDR™ 2.6 Software and DLL

TDR/TDT software with Insertion/Return Loss

We are pleased to announce the official release of XTDR™ Version 2.6 for our line of HL22xx and HL52xx series Signal Path Analyzers™.

XTDR™ 2.6 adds a feature not seen in competing low-cost TDR instruments: Insertion and Return Loss. For the first time, insertion loss (S21) and return loss (S11) measurements are available from a budget TDR.

NEW: S-parameter Capabilities

HYPERLABS instruments running XTDR™ 2.6 are uniquely capable of measuring insertion loss (S21) and return loss (S11) without using a separate network analyzer.

These features are unique for low-cost TDR/TDT instruments, and our users save 90% or more vs. keeping separate VNA and TDR instruments.

Improved TDR/TDT/Crosstalk Measurement

XTDR™ 2.6 makes it easier to acquire and analyze TDR, TDT, and Crosstalk (XT) data in systems of up to 20 channels. 

With a few mouse clicks, you can acquire impedance, voltage or normalized readings as a function of either time or distance.

New features in XTDR™ 2.6 include automatic reference point detection and a refined user interface. Other features include CSV/PNG logging, adjustable acquisition windows, multiple waveform averaging, and stored waveform comparison.
