Portable oscilloscopes
4 June 2014, Test & Measurement

Agilent Technologies introduced two new high-performance portable oscilloscope series deploying next-generation technology.

The Infiniium S-Series is optimised for signal integrity over bandwidths up to 8 GHz, while the InfiniiVision 6000 X-Series touts price/performance benefits with bandwidths up to 6 GHz.

The Infiniium S-Series takes advantage of the world’s fastest 10-bit analog-to-digital converter (ADC). Compared with traditional scopes with 8-bit ADCs, the S-Series has four times the vertical resolution for precise viewing of signal detail. Coupled with a new low-noise front end, it delivers an ENOB (effective number of bits) for the system of more than eight.

The S-Series includes bandwidths from 500 MHz to 8 GHz with four-channel DSO models and 16-digital-channel MSO models. Standard memory is 50 Mpts per channel or 100 Mpts per channel when interleaved. The instruments’ comprehensive application-specific measurement software is fuelled by a powerful motherboard with 8 GB RAM, ensuring the scope stays responsive in all operating modes.

Fast boot-up time and increased reliability are made possible with a solid-state drive, and a 15” multitouch capacitive display makes it easier to see results and easier to use. Agilent also provides options for integrating MATLAB capabilities directly into the oscilloscopes, further increasing their measurement and analysis power.

The new InfiniiVision 6000 X-Series includes 2- and 4-channel DSO models and MSO models with 16 digital channels and with bandwidths from 1 GHz to 6 GHz at 20 GSps sample rate. Their weight of 6,8 kg and depth of 15 cm make these the most easily portable multi-GHz-bandwidth oscilloscopes on the market.

The 6000 X-Series features a 12,1” multitouch screen that lets engineers visualise and isolate more anomalies with its 450 000 waveform-per-second update rate and the hardware InfiniiScan Zone touch trigger. Localised voice control in 14 languages allows precise scope control and signal visualisation while an engineer’s hands are occupied.

For the first time in an oscilloscope with an embedded operating system, the 6000 X-Series offers a jitter and real-time eye diagram analysis option that provides an intuitive but powerful way to visualise jitter and eye diagrams of digital signals in embedded designs. Used with the standard colour grade and histogram features, this augments engineers’ characterisation and debugging efficiency.

The InfiniiVision 6000 X-Series extends instrument integration to six instruments in one: oscilloscope, logic analyser (MSO), protocol analyser, dual-channel WaveGen function/arbitrary waveform generator, digital voltmeter, and for the first time in any oscilloscope, a 10-digit counter totaliser. This counter has 3,2 GHz bandwidth, and the totaliser counts trigger-qualified events in addition to edges.
