Agilent Technologies Introduces World’s Highest-Performance Oscilloscope

Agilent Technologies Inc. introduced its Infiniium Z-Series oscilloscopes, which can be synchronized to measure up to 40 channels simultaneously with a maximum 63-GHz real-time oscilloscope bandwidth (on up to 10 oscilloscopes). With industry-leading noise and jitter measurement floors, the new oscilloscopes enable engineers to effectively test devices that incorporate the newest technologies and achieve new performance milestones.

The Z-Series includes 10 models ranging from 20 to 63 GHz, all of which are bandwidth-upgradable to 63 GHz. The Z-Series also features significantly faster processing and a next-generation user interface.

Key capabilities include:

Why Capacitance? Benefits & Applications of Digital Capacitive Solutions

In this paper, readers will discover digital capacitive displacement measurement solutions not possible with conventional analog systems. The following applications address a wide range of industry sectors.
  • •Sufficient bandwidth to capture the third harmonic on 28-, 32- and 40-Gbps digital signals;
  • •Next-generation user interface to analyze emerging technologies, including spatial modulation;
  • •Optional synchronization port to measure up to 40 channels simultaneously;
  • •Capacitive touch screen and touch-screen-friendly controls to improve the user experience; and
  • •USB 3.0 offload speeds, making it significantly faster to offload and analyze data.

The Z-Series leverages key technologies used in the 90000 Q-Series oscilloscopes. They include RealEdge technology, which comprises a combination of Agilent-proprietary architectures, next-generation microcircuits/thin-film components, and advanced application of Agilent’s indium phosphide semiconductor process. RealEdge enables high-frequency capability while maintaining the industry’s lowest noise and jitter measurement floors (75 fs).

These new oscilloscopes allow engineers to take advantage of Agilent Infiniium oscilloscopes’ industry-leading hardware and software advancements that have been years in the making. These improvements include seamless integration of elements such as:

  • •The ability to join multiple Z-Series oscilloscopes together using Agilent’s exclusive software to form a system of 40 channels or more (N8822A);
  • •Compatibility with more than 40 measurement-specific applications, including jitter, triggering and measurement software, analysis tools and full-compliance certification test suites;
  • •Breakthrough Infiniium offline analysis software, which lets engineers analyze data using oscilloscope software on a PC or laptop instead of tying up the instrument for analysis;
  • •N2807A PrecisionProbe Advanced software that helps engineers characterize and correct for cables to the full 63 GHz; and
  • •Agilent’s flexible and innovative InfiniiMax III probing technology for bandwidths up to 30 GHz.

Customers who have previously purchased the 90000 Q-Series can upgrade their units to Z-Series performance by ordering the N2105A and N2109A upgrade kits. Additional information about Agilent’s new Infiniium Z-Series is available at www.agilent.com/find/ZSeries.
