XSeries Oscilloscope: Photo credit: Agilent Technologies‘Upgrade to Your Ultimate Scope’ Promotion Starts April 1

Santa Clara, CA– Agilent Technologies [NYSE: A] is celebrating the 3rd anniversary of its InfiniiVision X-Series oscilloscopes, which redefined oscilloscope technology with several innovations:

  • MegaZoom IV technology with 1 million waveforms per second update rate.
  • First fully upgradable bandwidth for oscilloscopes in this class.
  • Industry’s first oscilloscope that fully integrates five instruments in one scope.

“Three years ago on February 15th we introduced the first fully upgradable scope with the world’s first integrated arbitrary waveform generator and followed it with the first integrated digital voltmeter,” says Jay Alexander, vice president and general manager of Agilent’s Oscilloscope and Protocol Division. “Just as our introduction of the first mixed-signal oscilloscope in 1996 established a new industry trend, the X-Series innovation set another industry trend that has been followed by some suppliers, with others expected to follow later.”

Investment-Protection Promotions

Agilent is celebrating the X-Series anniversary by offering a powerful new investment-protection program called “Upgrade to Your Ultimate Scope.” With this promotion, users can turn on all software applications on their X-Series oscilloscopes instantly, including the arbitrary waveform generator and digital voltmeter.

The promotion can be used in conjunction with Agilent’s “Supercharge Your Bandwidth”promotion, which gives customers the next-higher-bandwidth model for the same price.

The Agilent InfiniiVision X-Series bandwidth upgrade option allows users to purchase the bandwidth performance they need today and upgrade it later.

The X-Series integrates the capabilities of five instruments in one unit: an oscilloscope with an uncompromised waveform update rate of up to 1 million waveforms per second, digital channels (MSO), integrated WaveGen arbitrary waveform generator, integrated digital voltmeter, and a serial protocol analyzer.
