Agilent Technologies Celebrates Third Anniversary of InfiniiVision X-Series Oscilloscopes that Pioneered Bandwidth Upgrades, 5-in-1 Instrument Integration

'Upgrade to Your Ultimate Scope' Promotion Starts April 1

SANTA CLARA, Calif. — Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) is  celebrating the third anniversary of its InfiniiVision X-Series oscilloscopes, which redefined oscilloscope technology with  several innovations:

• MegaZoom IV technology with 1 million waveforms per second update rate;

• First fully upgradable bandwidth for oscilloscopes in this class; and

• Industry's first oscilloscope that fully integrates five instruments in one scope.

The InfiniiVision X-Series' success has propelled Agilent to be the fastest-growing oscilloscope company in the world for the past several years, as demonstrated most recently by the 2013 Global Oscilloscopes Growth Leadership Award from Frost Sullivan.

"Three years ago on Feb. 15 we introduced the first fully upgradable scope with the world's first integrated arbitrary waveform generator and followed it with the first integrated digital voltmeter," said Jay Alexander, vice president and general manager of Agilent's Oscilloscope and Protocol Division. "Just as our introduction of the first mixed-signal oscilloscope in 1996 established a new industry trend, the X-Series innovation set another industry trend that has been followed by some suppliers, with others expected to follow later."

Investment-Protection Promotions

Agilent is celebrating the X-Series anniversary by offering a powerful new investment-protection program called "Upgrade to Your Ultimate Scope." With this promotion, users can turn on all software applications on their X-Series oscilloscopes instantly, including the arbitrary waveform generator and digital voltmeter.

The promotion can be used in conjunction with Agilent's "Supercharge Your Bandwidth" promotion, which gives customers the next-higher-bandwidth model for the same price.

"These two compelling oscilloscope promotions offer customers both performance and capability at an unprecedented value," said Jun Chie, marketing manager of Agilent's Oscilloscope and Protocol Division. "The true benefit of ‘Upgrade to Your Ultimate Scope' is that customers can apply this promotion on April 1 directly to the scopes they purchased with the ‘Supercharge Your Bandwidth' promotion."

The Agilent InfiniiVision X-Series bandwidth upgrade option allows users to purchase the bandwidth performance they need today and upgrade it later.

The X-Series integrates the capabilities of five instruments in one unit: an oscilloscope with an uncompromised waveform update rate of up to 1 million waveforms per second, digital channels (MSO), integrated WaveGen arbitrary waveform generator, integrated digital voltmeter and a serial protocol analyzer.

All X-Series scopes come with a standard fast Fourier transform math function and are supported by the Agilent 64997A Spectrum Visualizer. InfiniiVision 3000 X-Series and 4000 X-Series scopes are supported by Agilent 89600B vector signal analyzer software to provide comprehensive RF domain measurements.

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