Telecom Lead Asia: Agilent Technologies has launched Infiniium 9000 H-Series oscilloscopes.
The T&M company claims that the four new models come in bandwidths of 250 MHz, 500 MHz, 1 GHz and 2 GHz. They are designed to offer up to 12-bit vertical resolution, which represents 16 times the quantization levels of traditional oscilloscopes with 8 bits of resolution. These scopes also include the industry’s deepest standard memory (up to 100 Mpts per channel).
The 9000 H-Series uses a combination of hyper sampling and linear noise-reduction technology to provide noise levels three times lower than traditional 8-bit oscilloscopes. This reduced noise enables users to view and resolve small signals that 8-bit oscilloscopes simply cannot measure.
Moreover, Agilent has developed a new series of low-noise probes specifically designed to allow engineers to view and analyze small-current signals. The new N2820A and N2821AAC/DC current probes offer the industry’s highest sensitivity, going all the way down to 50 uA, with a maximum current range of 5 A. These probes work in cooperation with the new oscilloscopes to offer the industry’s most sensitive current measurements. The higher sensitivity is useful for measuring current consumption of battery-powered mobile devices or integrated circuits.
The proliferation of mobile devices and “green” products has created a growing need to make low-power, high-dynamic-range
“Customers who work with power-consumption measurements now have a comprehensive solution to make accurate current-consumption measurements at an affordable cost,” said Jay Alexander, vice president and general manager of Agilent’s Oscilloscope Products Division. “The 9000 H-Series oscilloscope and N2820A and N2821A current probes combine low noise and high sensitivity to give engineers the high-accuracy measurements they need for creating energy-efficient products.”
