TRADE NEWS: Agilent Technologies Announces Next-Generation User Interface for Infiniium Real-Time Oscilloscopes
SANTA CLARA, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
Agilent (News - Alert) Technologies Inc. (NYSE:�A) today announced a next-generation
user interface for its Infiniium real-time oscilloscopes. It is the
first oscilloscope user interface to take advantage of new display
technologies and significantly enhance the user experience by offering
faster documentation, personalized viewing and improved usability.
Infiniium oscilloscopes with the new user interface allow engineers to
easily manipulate their data across multiple monitors and move windows,
charts and measurement results to where they want them on the screen.
See a short video demonstration at www.youtube.com/watch?v=yMwJgbWKGEY.
The new interface can be used on oscilloscope mainframes as well as
offline on a PC with Agilent's N8900A
Infiniium offline analysis software. Infiniium offline software
resolves the oscilloscope-processing bottleneck by allowing engineers to
view, analyze, share and document their results somewhere other than
where they perform the tests, or at a different time.
To enable engineers to create better documentation faster, the new user
interface displays bookmarks and composite files-documentation features
previously unavailable in oscilloscope user interfaces. Because
Infiniium offline software makes it possible to run the new user
interface on a PC, engineers can more easily share information with
design partners, vendors and customers using USB flash drives, email or
"I was one of the engineers who helped design the original Infiniium
user interface, so I can attest that our focus on usability has been
there from the beginning," said Jay Alexander, vice president and
general manager of Agilent's Oscilloscope and Protocol Division. "As
with that first design, our next-generatin user interface reflects
extensive customer feedback and usability testing. It greatly
complements our industry-leading hardware technology so that engineers
can solve their design problems faster."
The Infiniium user interface delivers a number of industry firsts:
First to offer separate dockable windows for time, frequency and
protocol measurements for user-customizable views.
First to save composite files to enable file sharing across
First to migrate a full-featured real-time oscilloscope user interface
to the PC for rapid navigation and powerful viewing/analysis.
First to offer smart markers that dynamically update delta values
coupled with annotated axis values for faster debugging.
First to offer transportable and server-based licensing to facilitate
sharing. (Not only can users share data, they can also lend
In addition, the N8900 Infiniium offline analysis application is the
first PC-based application to support protocol decode for I�C; SPI;
RS-232; RS-422; RS-485; UART; JTAG; CAN; CAN symbolic; LIN; FlexRay;
USB; PCIe(r) gen 1, 2 and 3; MIPI® D-PHY and M-PHY®; DigRF; 8B/10B;
SATA/SAS (News - Alert); HDMI; DDR1, 2, 3 and 4; LPDDR 1, 2 and 3; and 64B/66B Ethernet
for faster debugging of designs that include serial buses.
