2.5-GHz Scope Breaks Performance Ground

The 54853A 2.5-GHz Infiniium oscilloscope provides four full-bandwidth 2-Gsample/s channels. Developed and produced by Agilent Technologies, the oscilloscope can capture four full-bandwidth, real-time single-ended and differential signals off a single trigger event. Its MegaZoom deep memory increases the amount of information that users can capture from events leading up to, and after, the specified trigger event.

"Customers can now purchase just the right amount of bandwidth for their applications. When combined with the 1131A innovative InfiniiMax active probe system, the oscilloscope offers unsurpassed performance, accuracy, and connectivity for the validation of new high-speed designs," says Ron Nersesian, vice president and general manager of Agilent's Design Validation Business.

Based on the Windows XP Pro open operating system, the scope is available now for $35,995. The 1131A active probes, also available now, range in price from $3850 to $5900.
