Agilent Technologies announced the expansion of its Infiniium 9000 X-Series oscilloscope family to include its highest performance mixed-signal oscilloscope (MSO). The expansion adds six new MSO models, as well as 13GHz DSO and DSA models, to the X-Series.
The integrated digital channels of the new MSO models can function at 20 GSa/s in an eight-channel configuration, or at 10 GSa/s in a 16-channel configuration. Agilent now offers MSOs ranging from 70 MHz to 33 GHz of analog bandwidth.
The new 13-GHz DSO, DSA and MSO models give engineers access to the Infiniium 90000 X-Series at a lower price.
"As system speeds have increased, it has become clear that additional digital channels, with performance appropriate to the analog scope bandwidth, would mark the next breakthrough in insight for our customers," said Jay Alexander, vice president and general manager of Agilent's Oscilloscope Products Division. "Pairing the world's fastest MSO with up to 33 GHz of true analog bandwidth allows engineers to accurately debug and validate emerging technologies such as DDR4-3200."
With the Agilent Infiniium 90000 X-Series, current and future customers who purchase DSO or DSA model oscilloscopes can upgrade to MSO functionality.
The Agilent MSOs have up to 400 million points of data capture behind each digital channel. To accommodate sample-rate differences between the high-speed analog channels and the digital MSO channels, this memory depth can be automatically sized with the analog trace length, including the full 2Gpts memory available on Agilent oscilloscopes.
