Agilent Introduces 2000 X-Series Oscilloscope Options

April 15, 2013. Agilent Technologies Inc. has introduced enhancements to its InfiniiVision 2000 X-Series oscilloscopes that provide more performance at a lower cost, making them suitable for educational institutions, manufacturing test environments, and R&D benches.

When the InfiniiVision 2000 and 3000 X-Series oscilloscopes were introduced in February 2011, they incorporated technology that allowed advanced capabilities at an affordable price. The new capabilities for the InfiniiVision 2000 X-Series bring more memory—up to 1 M per channel—and a variety of low-cost serial decoding options for computer and embedded systems designers, as well as automotive and aerospace manufacturers.

Agilent has launched the new upgrades with a bonus of a five-year factory warranty (two years longer than the previous warranty).

“The breakthrough technologies and advanced capabilities in the 2000 X-Series give our customers a way to make excellent oscilloscope measurements affordably,” said Jay Alexander, vice president and general manager of Agilent’s Oscilloscope Products Division. “The additional memory and serial decoding options for the 2000 X-Series oscilloscopes now give customers with highly constrained budgets even more flexibility to get their jobs done faster. And the extended factory warranty further reduces their cost of ownership.”

The Agilent InfiniiVision 2000 X- Series offers bandwidths from 70 MHz to 200 MHz and boasts the fastest waveform update rate in its class for superior viewing of signal detail and infrequent events, the company said.

Agilent InfiniiVision 2000 X-Series oscilloscope optional measurement software packages add functionality, either at time of purchase or as needs arise:

  • Segmented memory for analysis of laser pulses, radar bursts and serial packets.
  • Hardware-accelerated mask testing to quickly perform pass/fail analysis using known good waveforms.
  • Hardware-accelerated serial decoding and triggering for I²C, SPI, CAN, LIN, I²C, and RS-232.
  • Deeper memory, up to 1 M per channel.

Electronic design and test teams in the computer, communications, semiconductor, aerospace, defense, automotive, and wireless industries, among others, continue to produce increasingly sophisticated hardware. Engineers and technicians use oscilloscopes as their primary tools to test and debug those designs. In addition, educators need affordable, industry-grade oscilloscopes to help prepare the next generation of engineers for success.

Agilent InfiniiVision 2000 X-Series oscilloscope prices range from $1,230 (70 MHz, two analog channels) to $3,316 (200 MHz, four analog channels, eight logic channels). A 1-M memory upgrade costs $200. Embedded, automotive, and computer serial-triggering and analysis options cost $500 each.
