Agilent's New Probe Adapter Faster than a Speeding Signal

2/4/2003 - Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) introduced a new probe adapter for the 86100 Infiniium DCA (digital communications analyzer) and the industry's fastest InfiniiMax 3.5 to 7 GHz active probes. The N1022A probe adapter provides power, identification/cali-bration interface and a high-integrity signal path between the DCA and the probe. The industry's fastest high-speed probing system can now be used with the wide-bandwidth DCA for verification and validation of high-speed digital product designs in the computer, communications and semiconductor industries.

The N1022A works with any plug-in module that has a 3.5 mm electrical input channel and is compatible with the 86100 Infiniium DCA. The ease of connecting the DCA with the adapter and the Agilent 1130 series probes' flexible architecture enables users to make either single-ended or differential measurements from a single probe amplifier, thereby saving the user significant time and money.

"Troubleshooting becomes more difficult as signals get faster and circuit designs become more complex," said Dave Bass, vice president and general manager of Agilent's Lightwave Division. "The addition of the adapter to the DCA family of products significantly enhances the DCA's capabilities in signal integrity applications."

U.S. Pricing and Availability
The Agilent N1022A is priced at $1,350 and is available to order now with shipping expected to begin in May 2003.
