Agilient Technologies Sets a New Standard for Signal Integrity
Bangalore: Agilent Technologies, Inc. (NYSE : A), a premier measurement company and a technology leader in chemical analysis, life sciences, diagnostics, electronics and communications, introduces two new high-performance portable oscilloscope series deploying next-generation oscilloscope technology. The Infiniium S‐Series sets a new standard for signal integrity for bandwidths up to 8 GHz, while the InfiniiVision 6000 X-Series sets a new standard for price/performance with bandwidths up to 6 GHz.
With the world’s fastest 10 bit Analog to Digital Converter (ADC), Agilient Technologies launch its Infiniium S-Series, which has four times the vertical resolution for precision viewing. Coupled with a low-noise front end, the S-Series delivers an ENOB (effective number of bits) for the system of more than eight, which the highest in the industry.
The S-Series features the industry’s most comprehensive application-specific measurement software, with a powerful motherboard with 8-GB RAM, ensuring the scope stays responsive in all operating modes. Fast boot-up time and increased reliability is made possible with its solid-state drive. With its 15-inch (38.1-cm) multi-touch capacitive display, the largest in the industry, provides an ease to see and use for the users. The company also provides options for integrating MATLAB capabilities directly into the oscilloscopes that further increases their measurement and analysis power of customers.
The new InfiniiVision 6000 X-Series is the first oscilloscope to offer 6 GHz bandwidth. The 6000 X-Series visualization experience starts with a 12.1-inch multi-touch capacitive touchscreen display. It lets the engineers to visualize and isolate more anomalies with its 450,000-waveform-per-second update rate and the hardware InfiniiScan Zone touch trigger. For the first time in an oscilloscope with an embedded operating system, the InfiniiVision 6000 X-Series offers a jitter and real-time eye diagram analysis option that provides an intuitive but powerful way to visualize jitter and eye diagrams of digital signals in embedded designs. Localized voice control in 14 languages allows precise scope control and signal visualization while an operator’s hands are occupied.
The Agilent InfiniiVision 6000 X-Series extends its instrument integration to six instruments in one facility: oscilloscope, logic analyzer (MSO), protocol analyzer, dual-channel WaveGen function/arbitrary waveform generator, digital voltmeter, and for the first time in any oscilloscope, a 10-digit counter totalizer.
“Customers working on higher-speed digital designs and RF embedded designs can choose between these two new oscilloscope platforms, depending on their needs and budget,” said Jay Alexander, vice president and general manager of Agilent’s Oscilloscope and Protocol Division.
