Agilent Technologies launched the Infiniium 9000 Series of mixed-signal and digital-storage oscilloscope. The six new models feature true analog bandwidths up to 4 GHz, built-in logic and protocol analysis, 15-inch (38.1 cm) XGA LCD display, measures 9 inches (22.86 cm) deep, and weighs only 25 pounds (11.3 kg). The Agilent 9000 Series oscilloscopes are the first scopes with integrated logic analysis channels and a protocol analyzer viewer for buses such as PCIeTM and USB. The integrated features extend scope functionality and make it easier for engineers to test complex designs.

Agilent Infiniium 9000 Series Oscilloscopes Features
- Three instruments in one
The Infiniium 9000 has the fastest integrated digital channels (2 GSa/s). This provides the richest set of MSO (mixed signal oscilloscope) trigger conditions for more accurate analysis of timing relationships between control signals and data buses. The industrys first in-scope protocol viewer for PCIe and USB enables engineers to extend their debug and testing capabilities without finding and hooking up additional test equipment. This capability gives designers faster insight into challenges that involve protocol-rich serial buses.
- Broad suite of debug and compliance application software
Infiniium 9000 Series oscilloscopes can be customized with a number of unique software options. Supported application packages give engineers meaningful insight into common serial buses, FPGAs and RF measurements, and allow for rapid compliance testing to industry standards. Twenty-five optional applications are available:
- Debug application software includes protocol triggering and viewing for PCIe and USB, serial decode and trigger for I2C, SPI, CAN, RS-232 buses and other UART microcontrollers, rapid core-assisted debug of designs with Xilinx or Altera FPGAs, InfiniiScan for triggering on infrequent signals that meet visual criteria, and many more.
- Compliance testing applications include communication mask testing, DDR1, DDR2, DDR3, Ethernet and USB 2.0.
- MATLAB data analysis software available directly from Agilent on all Infiniium 9000 Series models. These packages enable oscilloscope users to make customized measurements, create and apply their own filters, and analyze and visualize live oscilloscope data. The Infiniium 9000 Series oscilloscopes are the first instruments to include MATLAB software at introduction.
- Innovative form factor
All Infiniium 9000 Series models are equipped with 15-inch displays – the largest in the industry – that offer 57 percent more display area than scopes with 12-inch displays. Larger displays have become increasingly important as scopes need more space to display digital and serial signals in addition to traditional scope channels. These scopes, designed with ASICs and Xilinx Virtex-5 technology, are the thinnest, lightest and most portable in their class, making them ideal for teams that share a scope.
