Agilent InfiniiVision 7000 oscilloscopes have fast update rate

Agilent Technologies has added to its range of mixed-signal and digital-storage oscilloscopes with 10 new models in the InfiniiVision 7000 series which offers bandwidths up to 1GHz and a deep memory waveform update rate of up to 100,000 waveforms per second.

According to the supplier, the faster update rate can help to eliminate errors which can occur due to a lack of response in previous scopes when deep memory is turned on.

The scope comes with a memory depth of 8 million points.

Software support includes optional packages for serial decode and trigger for I2C, SPI, CAN, LIN, FlexRay, RS-232 and other UART. There is also dedicated support for core-assisted debug of designs with Xilinx or Altera FPGAs.

The 7000 series also sports one of the largest scope displays available, measuring 12.1in. This will be a benefit when viewing as many as 20 channels of serial data.

Various configurations are available starting with a 350MHz bandwidth model and prices start at £3,850.
