Agilent Technologies Introduces Oscilloscopes with Industry's Biggest Display, Hardware-Accelerated "Search and Navigate" Capability

New MSO, DSO Models Offer Best Signal Visibility at Low Cost, Industry's Fastest Waveform Update Rates

SANTA CLARA, Calif. - Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) today added 14 new models to its InfiniiVision 7000 Series mixed-signal and digital-storage oscilloscope portfolio. These new scopes offer bandwidths from 100 MHz up to 1 GHz. In addition to traditional analog signal representation, the scopes provide digital signal capture and serial bus triggering and decode. Custom integrated circuits deliver hardware-accelerated operation and put up to 100,000 waveforms on screen each second to help designers capture rich signal detail and intermittent events.

Electronic design and test teams in nearly every electronic industry, including 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 those designs.
Agilent's InfiniiVision 7000B Series oscilloscopes offer the best signal visibility to designers who employ digital control signals or serial bus communication schemes

Benefits of the Agilent InfiniiVision 7000B Series oscilloscopes

  • Biggest display: All InfiniiVision 7000B Series models are
    equipped with a biggest-in-class 12.1-inch display -- nearly 40 percent more display area than any other scope on the market. The increased display size helps users display up to 20 channels simultaneously with serial protocol.

  • Fastest update rate: InfiniiVision 7000B Series models provide
    the industry's fastest sustained update rate -- up to 100,000 waveforms per second -- eliminating two common errors that can cause engineers to miss critical information. These issues include unresponsive controls with deep memory turned on, and traditional architectures that are blind to changes in the signals being tested. For designs with both digital and analog signal measurements, the update rate is 5,000 times faster than any other available scope. This fast update rate allows users to view critical signal detail that competitive scopes miss with their longer dead times.

  • Most comprehensive suite of applications: In addition to their
    numerous general-purpose features, InfiniiVision 7000B Series oscilloscopes can be equipped with a number of unique software options to shorten debug cycles. Optional software packages include:

    - hardware-accelerated serial decode, lister and trigger for MIL-STD 1553, I2 S, I2C, SPI, CAN, LIN, FlexRay, RS-232 and other UARTs with search and navigation capability;

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

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

    - mask testing with hardware-acceleration, which allows engineers to test waveforms to specified standards in seconds instead of hours;

    - 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 for the past five years," said Jay Alexander, vice president and general manager of Agilent's oscilloscopes business. "The InfiniiVision 7000B Series capitalizes on more than a decade of leadership in developing MSOs. These scopes offer our customers a winning combination of innovative usability and the best signal visibility available in this class of scopes."

    Agilent is showing its InfiniiVision 7000B Series at Embedded World March 2-4, in Nuremburg, Germany, Hall 10, Stand 225.
