Agilent Technologies' Infiniium 90000 X-Series Oscilloscope Wins Electron d'Or 2010 Award for Innovation
The Electron d'Or award competition is sponsored annually by the French electronics magazine ElectroniqueS to recognise innovation in 12 areas of electronics. The Agilent 90000 X-Series won against strong competition from other nominees including products from Tektronix, National Instruments and LeCroy. This is the third time that an Agilent product has received this award.
"We are honored that the judges selected the Infiniium 90000 X-Series for this prestigious award," said Benoit Neel, vice president and general manager, Agilent European Field Operations. "This award is due recognition for our investment in an innovative integrated circuit process that allows us to meet our customers' needs for testing emerging technologies."
Agilent's proprietary indium phosphide (InP) integrated circuit process enables highfrequency oscilloscope capability while yielding the industry's lowest noise floor and jitter measurement floor. Custom aluminum nitride packaging technology combines five InP chips in the frontend multichip module, which incorporates unique noise shielding and heat dissipation techniques.
The Agilent 90000 X-Series oscilloscopes, the world's fastest realtime oscilloscopes, were introduced in April 2010 with volume customer shipments beginning this month. The 90000 X-Series scopes are engineered for 32 GHz trueanalog bandwidth that delivers the industry's highest realtime scope measurement accuracy, the industry's only 30-GHz oscilloscope probing system, and the industry's first applicationspecific measurement software. These oscilloscopes are able to deliver the highest measurement accuracy because they offer the highest true analog bandwidth (32 GHz), the lowest oscilloscope noise floor (2.04 mV at 50 mV/div, 32 GHz), and the lowest jitter measurement floor (150 fs).
