Agilent Technologies Introduces High-Definition Oscilloscopes
Jan 10, 2013 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) --
Agilent Technologies Inc. introduced Infiniium 9000 H-Series high-definition oscilloscopes.
The four new models come in bandwidths of 250 MHz, 500 MHz, 1 GHz and 2 GHz.
In a release, the Company noted that they offer up to 12-bit vertical resolution, which represents 16 times the quantization levels of traditional oscilloscopes with 8 bits of resolution. These scopes also include up to 100 Mpts per channel.
Agilent has developed a new series of low-noise probes specifically designed to allow engineers to view and analyze small-current signals. The new N2820A and N2821A AC/DC current probes offer the industry's highest sensitivity, going all the way down to 50 uA, with a maximum current range of 5 A. These probes work in cooperation with the new oscilloscopes to offer the industry's most sensitive current measurements. The higher sensitivity is especially useful for measuring current consumption of battery-powered mobile devices or integrated circuits.
The N2820A current probe interface uses a make-before-break connector, connecting and disconnecting without interrupting the circuit under test across multiple locations on the target board.
"Customers who work with power-consumption measurements now have a comprehensive solution to make accurate current-consumption measurements at an affordable cost," said Jay Alexander, vice president and general manager of Agilent's Oscilloscope Products Division. "The 9000 H-Series oscilloscope and N2820A and N2821A current probes combine low noise and high sensitivity to give engineers the high-accuracy measurements they need for creating energy-efficient products."
The Agilent 9000 H-Series provides standard memory of up to 100 million points per channel.
The Agilent Infiniium 9000 H-Series oscilloscopes are now available.
