Agilent Intros New Oscilloscope Options
Upgraded oscilloscope design.
Santa Clara, CA — Agilent Technologies Inc. has introduced enhancements to its InfiniiVision 2000 X-Series oscilloscopes that provide more performance at a lower cost, making them suitable for educational institutions, manufacturing test environments and R&D benches.

When the InfiniiVision 2000 and 3000 X-Series oscilloscopes were introduced in February 2011, they incorporated breakthrough technology that allowed advanced capabilities at an affordable price. The new capabilities for the InfiniiVision 2000 X-Series bring more memory, and a variety of low-cost serial decoding options for computer and embedded systems designers, as well as automotive and aerospace manufacturers.

The company has launched the new upgrades with a bonus of a five-year factory warranty (two years longer than the previous warranty). The Agilent InfiniiVision 2000 X-Series offers bandwidths from 70MHz to 200MHz and has the fastest waveform update rate in its class for superior viewing of signal detail and infrequent events.

These oscilloscopes enable engineers and technicians to see more of their signal more of the time; the instruments reportedly provide the fastest update rates in their class and an 8.5-in. WVGA display, which supplies twice the viewing area of other popular 'scopes. In addition to best-in-class oscilloscope performance, these instruments offer optional integrated MSO capability for time-aligned digital and analog signal viewing, an optional integrated function generator, a digital voltmeter, and optional hardware-accelerated serial protocol analysis.

The company also offers more investment protection with upgrade options and a standard five-year warranty. The InfiniiVision 2000 X-Series is the only fully upgradable (including bandwidth) oscilloscope in its class, so engineers and technicians can purchase what they need today and add capabilities as their performance needs evolve.

Optional measurement software packages add functionality, either at time of purchase or as needs arise, including: segmented memory for analysis of laser pulses, radar bursts and serial packets; hardware-accelerated mask testing to quickly perform pass/fail analysis using known good waveforms; hardware-accelerated serial decoding and triggering for I2C, SPI, CAN, LIN, I2S, and RS-232; deeper memory.

Engineers and technicians use oscilloscopes as their primary tools to test and debug increasingly sophisticated designs. In addition, educators need affordable, industry-grade oscilloscopes to help prepare the next generation of engineers for success.
