The signal integrity advantages of the Agilent Infiniium 81204B Scopes and InfiniiMax probing system include the industry’s lowest noise floor, lowest jitter measurement floor, lowest trigger jitter and flattest frequency response. These foundational capabilities are crucial for achieving accurate and repeatable measurements. These superior signal integrity capabilities come from Agilent’s RF design experience, proprietary packaging technologies and unique CMOS ADC architecture. Superior signal integrity maximizes your design margins by not wasting any measurement accuracy due to poor noise, jitter or frequency response of the scope or probing system.

The probing advantages of the InfiniiMax Series probes include the low noise and flat frequency response mentioned above. The InfiniiMax Series also offers the industry’s widest selection of probe amplifier bandwidths (currently six) and the industry’s widest variety of different probe head types (currently 11 + one extension cable). InfiniiMax is also the probing system that offers 13 GHz bandwidth for the differential solder-in, differential browsing and differential SMA use models. It now supports a unique environmental chamber probe extension solution as well. Since its inception, the awardwinning InfiniiMax probe system has provided maximum performance with unmatched usability.

The application software for the Infiniium 80000B Series is the industry’s largest – currently offering a choice of 29 different application packages. Application specific software solutions include compliance test packages for industry standards such as: PCI-Express®, DDR, FBD, SATA, SAS, FC, DVI, HDMI, USB, FireWire, Ethernet, XAUI, Serial Rapid IO, CPRI, OBSAI RP3, and DisplayPort as well as more general purpose jitter and serial data analysis packages. Agilent is also the industry-leading vendor to offer innovative packages for ultra-wideband vector signal analysis, noise reduction and bandwidth control, and InfiniiScan event identification software.

The industry-leading signal integrity, probing and software application capabilities of the Infiniium 80000B Series scopes and InfiniiMax Series probes have recently won four industry awards.

Superior signal integrity andprobing for your application Agilent doesn’t only deliver industry leading oscilloscope performance. It also uses the company’s extensive technology base to provide superior signal integrity, probing and analysis software for the designer’s specific application.
