Agilent Technologies Redefines the Oscilloscope Experience with the InfiniiVision 4000 X-Series

New Models Are Industry’s First with Capacitive Touch Screen and Touch Triggering

SANTA CLARA, Calif., – Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) today introduced the groundbreaking InfiniiVision 4000 X-Series digital-storage and mixed-signal oscilloscopes. This new series establishes unprecedented levels of flexibility and ease of use among units that use an embedded operating system.

As the only fully upgradeable family of five-in-one oscilloscopes in the category, the InfiniiVision 4000 X-Series also provides excellent investment protection.

The new lineup offers bandwidths from 200 MHz to 1.5 GHz and several benchmark features. First is an industry-leading update rate of 1 million waveforms per second with standard segmented memory, which uses patented MegaZoom IV smart memory technology. Next are a 12-inch capacitive touch screen—the industry’s largest—and the exclusive, all-new InfiniiScan Zone touch-triggering capability.

“These new scopes give engineers an uncompromised ability to find the most difficult problems in their designs,” said Jay Alexander, vice president and general manager of Agilent’s Oscilloscope Products Division. “They can find those problems faster with the advantages of a natural, intuitive touch-screen interface that will redefine their experience with oscilloscopes.”

The hallmarks of the 4000 X-Series are speed, ease of use and integration. With the high-speed waveform update rate, operation is always fast, even with digital channels, protocol decoding, math functions or measurements activated. Speed also translates into the highest probability of capturing random or intermittent events that often go undetected by scopes with lower update rates.

Because the 4000 X-Series was designed specifically for touch operation, engineers can select targets naturally and quickly. For example, InfiniiScan Zone makes triggering as easy as finding the signal of interest and drawing a box around it: If users can see a signal, they can trigger on it. To further improve productivity, the interface includes an alphanumeric touchpad that replaces tedious knob-based operation, and touch-based interaction that enables greater flexibility in displaying measurement information.

The high level of integration starts with the capabilities of five instruments on one unit: oscilloscope, digital channels (MSO), protocol analysis, digital voltmeter and dual-channel WaveGen function/arbitrary waveform generator. The 4000 X-Series also supports a wide range of popular optional applications: MIL-STD 1553 and ARINC 429; I2S; CAN/LIN; FlexRay; RS232/422/485/UART; I2C/ SPI; and USB 2.0 Hi-Speed, Full-Speed and Low-Speed triggering and analysis (the first hardware-based USB trigger/decode oscilloscope solution).

The InfiniiVision 4000 X-Series includes 200-MHz, 350-MHz, 500-MHz, 1-GHz and 1.5-GHz models. The standard configuration for all models includes 4 Mpts of memory and segmented memory.
