Oscilloscopes Feature Large Display, Fast Waveform Update Rate
Agilent Technologies expanded its mixed-signal and digital-storage oscilloscope portfolio with 10 new models that comprise its next-generation InfiniiVision 7000 Series. The series offers bandwidths up to 1 GHz and a deep memory waveform update rate of up to 100,000 waveforms per second. Each model, equipped with a 12.1-inch XGA LCD display comes in a package that is 7" deep and weighs 14 lb. The increased display size is appropriate users who need to display up to 20 channels simultaneously with serial protocol. The fast update rate eliminates two common errors that can cause engineers to miss critical information: unresponsive controls with deep memory turned on, and traditional architectures that are blind to changes in signals being tested. For designs with both digital and analog signal measurements, the update rate is said to be 5,000 times faster than any other available scope. This allows the user to view critical signal detail that competitive scopes miss with their longer dead times. Additional features include serial decode and trigger for I2C, SPI, CAN, LIN, FlexRay, RS-232 and other UART; rapid core-assisted debug of designs with Xilinx or Altera FPGAs; segmented memory for analysis of laser pulses, radar bursts and serial packets; offline PC viewing and sharing of previously acquired scope data; and RF contextual viewing of scope data using Vector Signal Analysis software.
