 Agilent's Infiniium 90000 Series oscilloscope with PC hardware

Agilent has announced the inclusion of faster PC hardware in the Infiniium 90000 Series oscilloscope family. Agilent claims, these real-time oscilloscopes are the most responsive in their class with waveform update rates more than 20 times faster than comparable scopes.

With the new performance enhancements, the Infiniium 90000 Series scopes yield results in less than 2 seconds. This performance combined with the 1 Gpts of memory offered in the Infiniium 90000 Series delivers quick document results of design performance to a wide range of test conditions.

The high-speed serial data links such as USB, SATA or PCI Express rely on high-performance oscilloscopes to measure jitter and other signal parameters. Complex analysis is often critical.

Oscilloscopes also need processing power to remain responsive when manipulating complex algorithms such as de-embedding algorithms. This improved responsiveness for the effects of channels, probes and fixtures on high-speed signals. Agilent's InfiniiSim waveform transformation software (N5465A), which also uses hardware acceleration, takes advantage of the new performance enhancements to provide high waveform update rates for measurements that use de-embedding algorithms.

"Delivering best-in-class oscilloscopes clearly takes an ongoing commitment to investing in key scope technologies, but it's also key to leverage industry performance enhancements in PC platform technology," said Jay Alexander, vice president and general manager of Agilent's oscilloscope organization. "We're excited about helping engineers save significant time making measurements as well as giving them access to measurements they can't perform on other scopes."

Availability: The new performance enhancements come standard at no additional cost on all Infiniium 90000 Series Oscilloscopes ordered after Nov. 15, 2009.
