Six New DSO Oscilloscope Models Offer More Capabilities

Agilent Technologies Inc. expanded its digital-storage oscilloscope (DSO) portfolio with six new models that comprise its next-generation 1000 Series. These new scopes offer bandwidths between 60 MHz and 200 MHz and deliver features normally found on more expensive scopes. The oscilloscopes are available with two or four channels, and each comes in a package that is just 5 inches deep and weighs less than 7 pounds.

Starting at $1,200, the Agilent DSO1000A Series oscilloscopes are packed with measurement capability to handle a broad range of debugging and test needs. Agilent 1000 Series oscilloscopes are designed to give engineers more scope than they think they can afford. Benefits of the Agilent 1000 Series oscilloscopes include:

  • More signal viewing: All 1000 Series models are equipped with a bright LCD display that offers a sharper image and is visible from a much wider viewing angle than competitive scopes. And with up to 20 kpts of memory per channel, the 1000 Series allows engineers to use the full sample rate of the scope up to 8x longer than other scopes in its class.
  • More capabilities: All 1000 Series oscilloscopes can display 23 automatic measurements up to 21 simultaneously, including measurements from a built-in six-digit counter. They are also the only name-brand economy scopes with sequence mode capability to help find elusive problems. Engineers can record and replay up to 1,000 occurrences of a trigger for easy identification of glitches and other anomalies. Agilent's 1000 Series even offers a suite of DSP filters to help users focus on the most relevant spectral content of signals.
