Deep memory, ultra-compact oscilloscopes

27 June 2007 Test & Measurement

Concilium Technologies has announced the availability of Agilent Technologies' 5000 Series oscilloscopes that offer 1 Mpts deep memory, high-resolution, lab-quality waveform acquisition as well as measurement capability in a lightweight, portable frame.

High-resolution measurements are typically taken with larger, more expensive instrumentation; however, with the 5000 series it can be taken wherever and whenever needed - either in the field or at the bench.

"The balance of high performance at an attractive price has attracted a lot of interest in the 5000 series in South Africa, as it is an exciting new addition to the ever increasing range of Agilent oscilloscopes. Judging by the reaction so far, I believe the 5000 series has hit the mark with the local electronics fraternity;" says Steve Alves MD of Concilium Technologies.

Agilent's portable deep-memory oscilloscopes allow engineers to discover the root of debug issues notably faster than those using previous-generation portable oscilloscopes. With 1 Mpts deep memory the can sustain high sample rates for long periods of time. Plus with 100 000 waveforms/s acquisition rate - the 5000 Series offers superior glitch-capture capability.

Furthermore, a high-definition XGA display system, which displays signals in 256 levels of intensity grading, highlights varying degrees of signal activity - which provides the ability to view signal anomalies as they occur.

The Agilent 5000 Series oscilloscopes also integrate a full suite of connectivity standards, including front- and back-panel USB ports, GPIB, LAN and XGA-out.
