Agilent Infiniium oscilloscopes gain deeper standard memory

February 2, 2011 - BUSINESS WIRE -- Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) enhanced the memory depth of its Infiniium oscilloscope lineup. All 30 models now ship with the industry's deepest standard memory and offer the deepest memory options, according to the company.

Agilent offers a range of Infiniium 9000, 90000 and 90000 X-Series real-time oscilloscopes with bandwidths from 600MHz to 32GHz. Mixed signal oscilloscope and digital storage oscilloscope models now ship with 20 Mpts of memory standard. Digital signal analyzer models now ship with 50 Mpts of memory. Infiniium 9000 and 90000 Series scopes offer a 1-Gpt memory option, and Infiniium 90000 X-Series scopes provide memory options up to 2 Gpts. Agilent’s deepest memory options are four to eight times deeper than competitive offerings.

Oscilloscopes are the primary tools engineers use to test and debug electronic designs. Scopes with deeper acquisition memory help development and validation teams bring products to market quickly by offering two advantages that yield greater insight: capturing longer durations of time at a fixed sample rate versus scopes with less memory and maintaining a faster sample rate for a fixed duration of time versus scopes with less memory.

In scopes with traditional architecture, memory depth increases typically necessitate a reduction in waveform update rate, the amount of time it takes to process and display acquired waveforms. Infiniium oscilloscopes have a deep-memory update rate up to 400 times faster than comprable systems, according to Agilent, eliminating unresponsive controls with deep memory turned on and long dead times that prevent the scope from capturing signal anomalies. With deep memory enabled, Infiniium scopes allow users to view critical signal detail.
