Original Press Release:

Agilent Technologies Introduces 100-MHz Oscilloscopes with Largest Display, Mixed-Signal Capability

Four New Models Offer Best Signal Visibility, Low Cost and a Comprehensive Suite of Insightful Software Applications

NUREMBURG, Germany, Embedded World, Hall 10, Stand 225, March 3, 2009 - Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) today expanded its mixed-signal and digital-storage oscilloscope portfolio with four new 100-MHz models in the InfiniiVision 7000 Series. The 7000 Series now offers bandwidths from 100 MHz to 1 GHz and delivers an unparalleled deep-memory waveform update rate of up to 100,000 waveforms per second. Each new model is equipped with the largest screen available in a 100-MHz scope - a 12.1-inch XGA LCD display - and comes in a package that is just 7 inches deep and weighs only 14 pounds.

Electronic design and test teams in nearly every electronics industry, including the computer, communications, semiconductor, aerospace/defense, automotive and wireless industries, continue to produce increasingly sophisticated hardware designs. Designers use oscilloscopes as the primary tool to test and debug their designs. The ability to consistently view subtle signal details and infrequent events allows designers to more quickly debug and test their electronic devices. Agilent's InfiniiVision 7000 Series oscilloscopes deliver the best signal visibility for designs that include analog and digital or serial signals. The combination of large-screen and mixed-signal capability for logic and protocol display previously was not available to designers who require scopes with only 100 MHz bandwidth.

Benefits of the Agilent InfiniiVision 7000 Series oscilloscopes:

o Biggest display: The new 100-MHz models have the largest displays in their class. All InfiniiVision 7000 Series models are equipped with 12.1-inch displays, which give designers nearly 40 percent more display area than any other scope in this class. The increased display size helps users who need to display up to 20 channels simultaneously with serial protocol.

o Fastest update rate: The new 100-MHz models join the rest of the InfiniiVision 7000 Series in providing the industry's fastest update rate - up to 100,000 waveforms per second - which eliminates unresponsive controls when deep memory is turned on. For designs with both digital and analog signal measurements, the 7000 Series' update rate is 5,000 times faster than that of any other available scope. This fast update rate allows designers to view critical signal details that competitive scopes miss because of their longer dead times.

o Most comprehensive suite of applications: InfiniiVision 7000 Series oscilloscopes can be customized with a number of unique software options. Supported applications give engineers meaningful insight into application-specific problems. Applications include:

- serial decode and trigger for I2C, SPI, CAN, LIN, FlexRay, mask/waveform limit testing, RS-232, and other UART testing;

- rapid core-assisted debug of designs with Xilinx or Altera FPGAs;

- segmented memory for analysis of laser pulses, radar bursts and serial packets;

- offline PC viewing and sharing of previously acquired scope data; and

- RF contextual viewing of scope data using vector signal analysis software.

"Agilent has been the fastest-growing scope vendor over the last five years," said Scott Sampl, vice president and general manager of Agilent's oscilloscopes business. "We continue to invest to meet customer needs. We're applying 10 years of experience in developing MSOs to deliver exceptional performance in our most popular form factor at 100 MHz bandwidth."

Agilent is showing its new 100-MHz models in the InfiniiVision 7000 Series here at Embedded World, March 3-5.
