TRADE NEWS: Agilent Technologies Introduces Hybrid 40-GSa/s Oscilloscope/Digitizers With Eight Channels in One Box

Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE:A) today expanded its digital storage oscilloscope and digitizer portfolio with three new low-profile models in the Infiniium 90008 Series. These hybrid instruments offer the highest channel density available in ultrahigh-performance oscilloscope/digitizers, with eight channels that deliver digitizing rates of 40 GSa/s and bandwidths from 8 to 13 GHz – all in a 7U-high package.

Engineers and scientists working in high-energy physics or radar rely on the ultrahigh-speed digitizing capability of high-performance oscilloscopes to make accurate measurements on single shot phenomena. Using multiple oscilloscopes to reach desired channel counts can be problematic in space-constrained test environments. Agilent’s Infiniium 90008 Series low-profile, high-performance oscilloscopes/digitizers have twice the channel density of traditional oscilloscopes, providing unmatched space efficiency. Researchers can use the instruments individually or combine multiple units to deploy systems with hundreds of channels of measurement capability.

Benefits of the Agilent Infiniium 90008 Series low-profile oscilloscope/digitizers include:

  • Unmatched real-time measurement accuracy: Leveraging technology from the award-winning Infiniium 90000 Series high-performance oscilloscopes, these new oscilloscope/digitizers offer the industry’s lowest noise floor at 40 GSa/s. Full-bandwidth probing solutions and accurate de-embedding and equalization capabilities ensure the best real-time measurement accuracy available today for bandwidths of 13 GHz and below.
  • Fast offload speeds and compatibility with industry-standard computation packages: Users may offload data for custom analysis on their PCs using an optional high-speed PCIe® bus card (available through www.dolphinics.com) to transfer data at sustained rates up to 150 MB/s. Device drivers for VxWorks, LabVIEW and Linux, with application code examples for MATLAB®, C/C++, Visual Basic, LabVIEW, and LabWindows/CVI software are standard.
  • Powerful internal measurement capabilities with dual on-board PCs and off-the-shelf software: Each eight-channel module boasts two PCs that run application software and provide standard I/O functionality. In addition, custom IDA (Infiniium data accelerator) hardware on the acquisition boards speeds measurements requiring filtering and math algorithms. Up to 1 Gpt of memory per channel supports long time-capture. Available application packages such as the 89601A vector analyzer software can speed scientists’ insight into research questions.

“Agilent has been the fastest-growing scope vendor since 1997,” said Jay Alexander, vice president and general manager of Agilent’s oscilloscopes business. “We focus our engineering efforts on delivering the measurement capability our customers need. The Infiniium 90008 Series has the performance and channel density to support leading-edge research so critical to basic science and modern physics.”
