Keysight Technologies has announced the new InfiniiVision 1000 X-Series oscilloscopes. This new low-cost oscilloscope series has 50MHz to 100MHz models that feature unique, Keysight-custom technology. The oscilloscopes deliver professional-level functionality with industry-leading software analysis and six-in-one instrument integration.

The series uses the company’s MegaZoom IV custom ASIC technology, which enables a high 50,000 waveforms per second update rate. This makes it easier to see random and infrequent glitches and anomalies that similarly-priced oscilloscopes might miss. The series also has a high sampling rate of up to 2GSa/s and comes standard with two probes. The oscilloscopes use segmented memory capability to maximize memory depth while helping the scope test faster.

“When designing the 1000 X-Series, we looked for ways to aggressively reduce costs while delivering a high-quality product,” said Dave Cipriani, vice president and general manager of Keysight’s Digital Photonics Center of Excellence. “We are excited to offer customers a low-priced solution that delivers excellent measurement performance and software analysis capabilities.”

The series provides professional-quality measurement and software analysis capability. The scope features 24 typical oscilloscope measurements to quickly analyze signals and determine signal parameters. Additional signal analysis is provided by the gated FFT function, which allows users to correlate time and frequency domain phenomenon on a single screen. And mask limit testing is also available to help users easily detect signal errors. The series supports decoding and analysis of a wide range of popular embedded and automotive serial bus applications, which include I2C, SPI, UART/RS232, CAN and LIN.
