AGILENT Technologies has released an enhanced bandwidth (EBW) option for the Infiniium 54855A 6GHz oscilloscope. The option increases the bandwidth to 7GHz.
When combined with the 1134A InfiniiMax probe amplifier and E2677A solder-in differential probe head, the system is the industry's first to enable real-time, high-impedance 7GHz measurements. This, combined with the ability to probe multiple locations on a device under test, allows system debug, characterisation and optimisation of high-speed digital product designs.
The EBW option also allows engineers to reduce overall measurement system noise by lowering the oscilloscope's bandwidth for improved accuracy and repeatability.
The InfiniiMax 1134A active probe amplifier with a differential solder-in probe head can match the 7GHz capability of the new EBW option by providing a typical measurement bandwidth of 7 GHz to the solder-in probe tip. These flexible probe tips can be resoldered from location to location, or multiple probe tips can be used on a single device under test.
