Agilent Rolls Out InfiniiMax 1130A 1.5 GHz Differential Probe

1/13/2004 - Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) introduced a 1.5 GHz differential probe that offers unmatched performance at the industry's lowest price. When the Agilent InfiniiMax 1130A differential probe is paired with Agilent's Infiniium mixed signal (MSO) and digital signal oscilloscopes (DSO), the system delivers industry-leading accuracy and probing connectivity to R&D engineers in the computer, communications and semiconductor industries for validating and verifying the performance of new high-speed digital product designs.

"As embedded design speeds increase, oscilloscope users are migrating from 500 MHz to 1 GHz oscilloscopes but continue to use their traditional passive probes that limit system bandwidth to 600 MHz and present significant loading to the circuit under test," said Ron Nersesian, vice president and general manager of Agilent's Design Validation Division. "With the introduction of our differential probe, customers are now able to realize the full system bandwidth of their 1 GHz oscilloscope and take advantage of the InfiniiMax's unsurpassed performance, accuracy and connectivity."

The Agilent InfiniiMax 1130A 1.5 GHz differential probe rounds out Agilent's award-winning(1) InfiniiMax 1130-series single-ended/differential probe system, giving designers the flexibility to choose the probe that matches their application need. The new probe helps engineers maximize the capabilities of the Agilent Infiniium 54830-series of MSOs and DSOs. For example, Agilent Infiniium MSOs enable engineers to easily view up to 20 time-aligned (4 scope + 16 logic timing) signals on one instrument, and offer triggering capabilities that help speed testing and debugging of new digital products.

Traditional probes are designed to make only single-ended or differential measurements, but not both. The flexible architecture of the Agilent 1130A differential probe enables engineers to make either single-ended or differential measurements from a single probe amplifier. Because the majority of designers make measurements on both types of signals, the InfiniiMax probe design can significantly reduce costs. In addition, the new probe offers:
