SANTA CLARA, Calif.--(Business Wire)--
Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) today introduced enhancements to its
InfiniiVision 2000 X-Series oscilloscopes that provide more performance at a
lower cost, making them ideal for educational institutions, manufacturing test
environments and R&D benches. 

When the InfiniiVision 2000 and 3000 X-Series oscilloscopes were introduced in
February 2011, they incorporated breakthrough technology that allowed advanced
capabilities at an affordable price. The new capabilities for the InfiniiVision
2000 X-Series bring more memory-up to 1 M per channel-and a variety of low-cost
serial decoding options for computer and embedded systems designers, as well as
automotive and aerospace manufacturers. 

Agilent has launched the new upgrades with a bonus of a five-year factory
warranty (two years longer than the previous warranty). 

"The breakthrough technologies and advanced capabilities in the 2000 X-Series
give our customers a way to make excellent oscilloscope measurements
affordably," said Jay Alexander, vice president and general manager of Agilent`s
Oscilloscope Products Division. "The additional memory and serial decoding
options for the 2000 X-Series oscilloscopes now give customers with highly
constrained budgets even more flexibility to get their jobs done faster. And the
extended factory warranty further reduces their cost of ownership." 

The Agilent InfiniiVision 2000 X- Series offers bandwidths from 70 MHz to 200
MHz and boasts the fastest waveform update rate in its class for superior
viewing of signal detail and infrequent events. 

Agilent InfiniiVision 2000 X-Series oscilloscopes enable engineers and
technicians to:

* See more of their signal more of the time: InfiniiVision 2000 X-Series models
provide the fastest update rates in their class and an 8.5-inch WVGA display,
which supplies twice the viewing area of other popular scopes. 
* Do more with the power of five instruments in one: In addition to
best-in-class oscilloscope performance, InfiniiVision 2000 X-Series
oscilloscopes offer optional integrated MSO capability for time-aligned digital
and analog signal viewing, an optional integrated function generator, a digital
voltmeter, and optional hardware-accelerated serial protocol analysis. 
* Get more investment protection with upgrade options and a standard five-year
warranty: The InfiniiVision 2000 X-Series is the only fully upgradable
(including bandwidth) oscilloscope in its class, so engineers and technicians
can purchase what they need today and add capabilities as their performance
needs evolve. Optional measurement software packages add functionality, either
at time of purchase or as needs arise:

* Segmented memory for analysis of laser pulses, radar bursts and serial
* Hardware-accelerated mask testing to quickly perform pass/fail analysis using
known good waveforms. 
* Hardware-accelerated serial decoding and triggering for I²C, SPI, CAN, LIN,
I²S, and RS-232. 
* Deeper memory, up to 1 M per channel.

Electronic design and test teams in the computer, communications, semiconductor,
aerospace, defense, automotive and wireless industries, among others, continue
to produce increasingly sophisticated hardware. Engineers and technicians use
oscilloscopes as their primary tools to test and debug those designs. In
addition, educators need affordable, industry-grade oscilloscopes to help
prepare the next generation of engineers for success.
