The Megam.o.l.e. 20 thermal profiler uses four nano-connectors. Offers 20 channels. At 7.2 mm, is said to have capacity for more than 25 runs before downloading data. Has three workflow wizards for set up, and M.O.L.E.-readiness indicators. OK button signals whether elements of the run are within pre-programmed parameters. MAP software is said to target ramp, soak, time above liquidous, and peak segments of the run; provides a single-page color-coded data summary. Runs with SuperM.O.L.E. Gold Profiler.
 
The TestStation Duo is reportedly the first fully concurrent in-circuit tester. Combines two independent test modules inside a tester frame; can perform simultaneous testing of two PCBs. Includes SafeTest protection, UltraPin II driver/sensors, and FrameScan FX vectorless test techniques. Is available in standard frame or as rack-mount components. Features Debug Pro and Production Pro user interface.
