Agilent updates firmware
Feb 28, 2008
Agilent Technologies Inc. has announced the latest release of its firmware for the Agilent N6705A DC Power Analyzer, which incorporates more than 25 customer-recommended enhancements. This version of firmware is shipping with all new orders and is a free upgrade for all existing customers.
"This new firmware release is a great example of how Agilent listens to its customers and incorporates changes that will make products more effective and easier to use," said Gary Whitman, vice president and general manager of Agilent's System Products Division. "We are committed to continually enhancing our DC power analyzer, ensuring it provides unrivaled productivity to the R&D engineers who use it."
New features and benefits of the updated firmware include:
A new grouping (paralleling) feature that allows users to control and monitor two to four mainframe outputs as if they were one output, eliminating the hassle of coordinating the programming and measurement of multiple outputs.
The addition of power traces (power curves) to the scope and data logger, which provide the ability to directly view the power consumption of a device under test (DUT) without making any calculations.
The ability to use markers to zoom in on a specific piece of the overall data set to get tailored measurements, such as minimum, average, maximum and peak-to-peak current, that pertain to only that piece of the waveform.
An auto-scale button for the scope and data logger, allowing users to easily see the waveform(s) being measured with the touch of one key.
