Agilent Technologies introduces new oscilloscopes
Apr 27, 2005
Agilent Technologies Inc. has introduced a series of four portable, digital-storage oscilloscopes (DSOs) for about 20 percent less than equivalent products with comparable quality, performance and features.
With bandwidths of 60, 100, 150 and 200 MHz, the Agilent DSO3000 Series offers two channels and a color display with almost 20 percent more waveform viewing area. The oscilloscopes are designed for engineers and technicians in communications, computing, industrial, government, aerospace and defense, and consumer industries as well as educators teaching electronics principles.
"It's good to see Agilent Technologies become a player in one of the larger segments of the oscilloscope market," said Galen Wampler, industry analyst at Prime Data. "Having another top-tier vendor bring quality innovation to the market is especially good for the end user looking for high performance in a value scope. At the low end of the oscilloscope market, the color display is becoming so important that many users will never buy a monochrome scope again. Agilent's new value oscilloscopes provide color at very aggressive prices."
"The new DSO3000 Series provides exceptional performance for the price," said Ron Nersesian, vice president and general manager of Agilent's Design Validation Division. "Agilent not only provides color on every model, but offers features, such as a dual-time base display, that have only been available in more expensive models. Customers now have a clear choice among first-tier vendors in the value segment of the oscilloscope market."
