company Agilent Technologies has announced the addition of four 1-GHz
models to its line of InfiniiVision 3000 X-Series oscilloscopes.
The newly launched oscilloscopes address the growing need
for higher-bandwidth bench scopes by offering 1-GHz models at prices starting
at what other leading manufacturers charge for models with half the bandwidth.
With these additions, the company doubles the available
bandwidth and addresses the top customer-requested enhancement.
With these new models, Agilent announced a new 1-GHz
active probe. The N2795A probe is designed to match the performance needs of the
3000 X-Series oscilloscopes, at a price comparable to equivalent-bandwidth
passive probes – without the impedance trade-offs of a passive approach.
In addition, both the 2000 and 3000 X-Series now
offer the option to add a three-digit voltmeter (DVM) and five-digit counter
that operate through the same probes as the oscilloscope channels.
No wonder customers responded so
strongly to the 3000 X-Series. The integrated four-in-one features [analog,
digital, and protocol analysis, plus function generator] offer unmatched
insight into their designs at an affordable price,” said Jay Alexander, vice
president and general manager of Agilent’s Oscilloscope Products Division.
In December, Agilent’s 2000 and 3000 X-Series
oscilloscopes won the 2011 EDN China Innovation Award for the best product in
the test and measurement category. The 2000 and 3000 X-Series
oscilloscopes also were named finalists in T&M Magazine’s Best in Test”
oscilloscopes category for 2012.
Recently, Agilent Technologies announced enhancements to its N7109A multi-channel signal
analyzer for emerging multichannel LTE, LTE-Advanced and MIMO RF
measurement requirements, including LTE antenna beamforming and LTE-Advanced
