Agilent Technologies Inc. has introduced three 600MHz-to-1GHz mid-range Infiniium MegaZoom deep-memory oscilloscopes that are designed to accelerate R&D in the communications, defense and semiconductor industries. The product offerings are the 54830B, 54831B and 54832B oscilloscopes.

The company's proprietary, deep-memory MegaZoom technology, with acquisition memory depths up to 8Mpts/channel and sampling rates up to 4GSa/s, eliminates issues of slow responsiveness and manual setups found in traditional deep-memory oscilloscopes.

When used to capture long serial data waveforms, the three oscilloscopes provide instant responses and allow the user to quickly zoom-in and search through data with no annoying delays. The efficient memory management system cuts setup time.

Performance of the equipment has been enhanced with a Motorola motherboard and 866MHz Pentium III processor with 256MB RAM. When combined with MegaZoom technology, these features enable fast response even with deep memory. Delays are likewise eliminated when changing scope settings or waiting for screen updates. A CD-ROM drive on the back panel facilitates software upgrades.

The Infiniium scopes have analog-like front panels that enable users to navigate easily through the controls and setup the scopes quickly. The Windows 98-based GUI is similar to a PC interface, and provides easy, intuitive access to advanced features. It also supports remote connectivity, file-sharing capabilities and peripheral support.
