Oscilloscopes tout low price, powerful features
Agilent Technologies Inc. introduced its 1000B Series oscilloscopes. The four new two-channel models, with bandwidths from 50 MHz to 150 MHz, offer powerful capabilities at an attractive price for engineers, technicians and educators, according to the company. All models in the 1000B Series are equipped with a sharp color LCD display that is easy to read even from wide angles. With up to 16 kpts of memory per channel, series is said to provide up to six times more memory than other scopes in its class. In addition, its 1-GS/s sample rate provides desirable signal detail. The oscilloscopes can display 23 automatic measurements, including those made with a built-in frequency counter. The 1000B Series comes standard with go/no-go mask testing capability, which allows even inexperienced oscilloscope users to perform precise parametric tests. These scopes also offer advanced capabilities such as sequence mode. Sequence mode allows users to record and replay up to 1,000 occurrences of a trigger for easy identification of glitches and other anomalies. The user interface and front-panel labels are available in 11 languages to support worldwide teams. USB connections make it easy to share and document measurement results. A free educator kit helps teachers and professors teach essential oscilloscope skills.
