AGILENT Technologies has introduced two new dual-channel 1GHz oscilloscopes. The new mixed-signal oscilloscope (MSO) and digital storage oscilloscope (DSO) combine advanced measurement features and performance functions to help R&D engineers simplify and speed the development of new digital products.
The Agilent 54833D Infiniium 1GHz MSO enables R&D engineers to easily view up to 18 time-aligned (2 scope + 16 logic timing) signals on one instrument.
The new MSO offers 18 channels and triggering capabilities that enable faster testing and debugging of state-of-the-art technologies than what is possible with traditional four-channel oscilloscopes.
For example, technology blocks such as PCI or the SDRAM memory commonly applied in embedded applications require four control lines and the clock to define the mode of operation at any point in time.
The new Agilent MSO is able to isolate specific cycles of operation as well as perform real-time waveform monitoring on one instrument, functions that traditional oscilloscopes are unable to do alone.
The Agilent 54833A Infiniium dual-channel 1GHz DSO offers all the features found in the Infiniium product line, including a simple front panel interface, easy access to advanced features through its Microsoft Windows interface, and advanced trigger and measurement features.
The 54833D/A 1GHz scopes, with acquisition memory depths up to 8Mpts per channel and sampling rates up to 4GSa/s, eliminate the frustrations of sluggish responsiveness associated with previous deep-memory oscilloscopes.
Agilent's MegaZoom Infiniium oscilloscopes enable the capture of long serial data waveforms and instant responses even with the deepest memory, and can quickly zoom-in and search through data without delays.
In addition, the MegaZoom memory system's high-speed display minimises missed events or under-sampling of a waveform, and it enables users to avoid time-consuming manual setups.
The new Infiniium 1GHz oscilloscopes are based on the Microsoft Windows XP Pro open operating system, and offer users the ability to run third-party Windows applications including Excel, MATLAB, Mathcad and Norton AntiVirus.
In addition, users can access and control Infiniium oscilloscopes from remote locations using the built-in Web software and 10/100BaseT LAN connections.
