Agilent Rolls Out 54852A Infiniium 2 GHz Oscilloscope at 10 GSa/s

5/26/2004 - Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) introduced the first four-channel, 2 GHz digital storage oscilloscope (DSO) that provides engineers with 10 GSa/s performance at the industry's lowest price. In addition, the Agilent 54852A Infiniium 2 GHz DSO and its companion 1130A InfiniiMax probing system have been certified by the USB Implementers Forum as USB 2.0 compliance test tools. Now, R&D engineers in the computer, communications, defense and semiconductor industries can build and purchase a USB 2.0 compliance test system for a greater than 20 percent savings as compared to competitive offerings.

"The newest member of our Infiniium product line of digital storage oscilloscopes provides our customers with 10 GSa/s sampling performance at a 5 GSa/s price, which will speed the development and deployment of their products at a significant cost savings," said Ron Nersesian, vice president and general manager of Agilent's Design Validation Division. "Agilent is committed to providing our customers exceptional value, and this new product allows engineers operating under tight budgets to benefit from the performance of Agilent Infiniium oscilloscopes."

The 2 GHz DSO with USB 2.0 compliance testing capabilities has an acquisition memory depth of up to 1 Mpts per channel and sampling rates up to 10 GSa/s on all four channels, eliminating the frustrations of sluggish responsiveness associated with previous deep-memory oscilloscopes. Agilent's MegaZoom technology, which captures long serial data waveforms instantly and accurately, and advanced software analysis options make the Agilent 54852A DSO an ideal tool for test and qualification of high-performance embedded systems.

As a USB 2.0 compliance test tool, the Agilent 54852A 2 GHz DSO gives engineers insight into their designs far earlier in the development process, helping to ensure their designs will meet USB 2.0 specifications before the final products are sent to independent compliance test labs. This lowers test costs, reduces manufacturing risks and speeds time to market of new products such as computers, peripherals and other electronic devices.

The four-channel 2 GHz DSO features a Microsoft(r) Windows(r) interface, which gives users easy access to advanced features and applications such as serial data analysis with clock recovery and jitter analysis. The My Infiniium application integration package allows customization of the scope's menu system so that custom analysis, measurements, or third-party Windows applications can be called from anywhere in Infiniium's menu structure. In addition, users can install and run vector signal analysis software in the Agilent 54852A to provide powerful, flexible, wideband signal analysis for applications including wideband communications and modulated radar.
