March 5, 2014 - UI for Infiniium real-time oscilloscopes offers accelerated documentation, personalized viewing, and improved usability. Engineers can manipulate data across multiple monitors and move windows, charts, and measurement results to desired position on screen. Able to be used on oscilloscope mainframes as well as offline on PC with N8900A Infiniium offline analysis software, UI displays bookmarks and composite files and offers smart markers as well as separate dockable windows.

Agilent Technologies Announces Next-Generation User Interface for Infiniium Real-Time Oscilloscopes

Press release date: February 25, 2014

Industry-First Features Offer Personalized Viewing, Improved Usability

SANTA CLARA, Calif. – Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) today announced a next-generation user interface for its Infiniium real-time oscilloscopes. It is the first oscilloscope user interface to take advantage of new display technologies and significantly enhance the user experience by offering faster documentation, personalized viewing and improved usability.

Infiniium oscilloscopes with the new user interface allow engineers to easily manipulate their data across multiple monitors and move windows, charts and measurement results to where they want them on the screen. See a short video demonstration at www.youtube.com/watch?v=yMwJgbWKGEY.

The new interface can be used on oscilloscope mainframes as well as offline on a PC with Agilent’s N8900A Infiniium offline analysis software. Infiniium offline software resolves the oscilloscope-processing bottleneck by allowing engineers to view, analyze, share and document their results somewhere other than where they perform the tests, or at a different time.

To enable engineers to create better documentation faster, the new user interface displays bookmarks and composite files—documentation features previously unavailable in oscilloscope user interfaces. Because Infiniium offline software makes it possible to run the new user interface on a PC, engineers can more easily share information with design partners, vendors and customers using USB flash drives, email or Web conferencing.

“I was one of the engineers who helped design the original Infiniium user interface, so I can attest that our focus on usability has been there from the beginning,” said Jay Alexander, vice president and general manager of Agilent’s Oscilloscope and Protocol Division. “As with that first design, our next-generation user interface reflects extensive customer feedback and usability testing. It greatly complements our industry-leading hardware technology so that engineers can solve their design problems faster.”

The Infiniium user interface delivers a number of industry firsts:

First to offer separate dockable windows for time, frequency and protocol measurements for user-customizable views.

First to save composite files to enable file sharing across multinational companies.

First to migrate a full-featured real-time oscilloscope user interface to the PC for rapid navigation and powerful viewing/analysis.

First to offer smart markers that dynamically update delta values coupled with annotated axis values for faster debugging.

First to offer transportable and server-based licensing to facilitate sharing. (Not only can users share data, they can also lend application licenses.)

In addition, the N8900 Infiniium offline analysis application is the first PC-based application to support protocol decode for I˛C; SPI; RS-232; RS-422; RS-485; UART; JTAG; CAN; CAN symbolic; LIN; FlexRay; USB; PCIe(r) gen 1, 2 and 3; MIPI® D-PHY and M-PHY®; DigRF; 8B/10B; SATA/SAS; HDMI; DDR1, 2, 3 and 4; LPDDR 1, 2 and 3; and 64B/66B Ethernet for faster debugging of designs that include serial buses.

Additional information on Agilent’s N8900A Infiniium offline analysis application, including information about a free, 30-day trial license and the new server-based licensing, can be found at www.agilent.com/find/N8900A. Images are available at www.agilent.com/find/N8900A_images.

Oscilloscope users can see a demonstration of the new Infiniium user interface at the Embedded World Conference, today through Feb. 27, Nuremberg, Germany.

Agilent’s complete oscilloscope portfolio includes instruments with a variety of form factors with bandwidths from 20 MHz to 90 GHz.

U.S. Pricing and Availability

Agilent N8900A Infiniium offline oscilloscope analysis application is priced at $750 for the base software, and Agilent offers a variety of upgrade options. It is available now.
