Agilent has recently released upgrades to its InfiniiVision 2000 X-Series oscilloscopes. The company's test and measurement tools no boast memory of up to 1M per channel as well as a range of serial decoding options for computer/embedded systems designers and automotive manufacturers.

The added memory covers firmware V2.30, where new and existing users of the InfiniiVision 2000 X-Series oscilloscopes will have access to up to 100,000 points of memory depth per channel. In addition, the new firmware provides a 30 day free trial of all of the scope's options, including the memory upgrade, embedded serial triggering and analysis (I2C and SPI), automotive serial triggering and analysis (CAN and LIN), and computer serial triggering and analysis (RS232/422/485/UART).

It also covers previously announced options, such as the integrated 3 digit digital voltmeter, waveform generator (now with modulation), segmented memory acquisition, and mass limit testing application.

The new serial trigger is hardware-based and can decode at 50,000wfm/sec. The 1M/channel is built into the company's own MegaZoom ASIC and features automatic memory depth management.

The update also includes an expansion on the WaveGen feature. Designers now have the ability to modulate signals, including AM (depth and frequency), FM (deviation and frequency), FSK (hop frequency and FSK rate), and AM/FM carriers (sine, square, and ramp). Applications for this updated WaveGen feature include education (show modulation in real time) and industry, when you want to create a simple waveform to test.

Finally, the updated InfiniiVision 2000 X-Series oscilloscopes has an updated educator's training kit, which includes a lab guide and tutorial, an oscilloscope fundamentals PowerPoint slide set, classroom posters, and more than 13 built-in training signals.

Agilent is running a promotion now through September 30, 2013: buy an app, get an app free. Basically if you buy any InfiniiVision X-series scope application you get a free application of equal or lesser value.
