High-bandwidth 4+16 channel scope debuts

9 October 2002 Test & Measurement

Agilent Technologies believes it has extended its leadership in the mixed-signal oscilloscope market with the release of a new family of mixed-signal oscilloscopes (MSOs).

The Agilent 54830 Series Infinium MSOs allow R&D engineers in the computer, communications, defence and semiconductor industries for the first time to easily view up to 20 time-aligned (four analog + 16 timing) signals on one instrument, thereby helping to simplify analysis and speed the development of new products.

The instruments' deep memory enables users to observe long serial data streams with high resolution or to find details buried in complex waveforms. The Infiniium MSOs also help reduce cost of test and time-to-market by incorporating 16 channel logic timing analyser capability in a single instrument. This enables engineers to design and test components, systems and processes more efficiently, according to the company.

The Infiniium MSOs' advanced MegaZoom deep-memory technology addresses user frustrations with previous deep-memory scopes by delivering fast responsiveness and high sample rate automatically, without requiring special manual configuration of the acquisition settings.

With acquisition memory depths of up to 16 MB and sampling rates up to 4 GSa/s, the Agilent Infiniium MSOs provide deep capture without the sluggish response associated with many deep-memory scopes. The new MSOs also include Infiniium's award-winning Windows-based graphical user interface that eases navigation and access to advanced features, and active probes that give users full system bandwidth up to 1 GHz.

Additional options that can be added to the Infiniium MSOs include:

* High-performance active probes.

* Universal Serial Bus (USB) 2,0 test option.

* Communication mask testing options.

* Voice control option.

* Wedge adapters and logic analyser adapters.
