Agilent Technologies Inc. is running a program where engineers who purchase qualifying equipment from the company, including Infiniium oscilloscopes, PNA-X network analyzers and PXA signal analyzers, will receive a complimentary InfiniiVision DSOX3034A, 4-channel, 350-MHz oscilloscope.
The worldwide deal sees anyone who buys a qualifying instrument before February 29, 2012 receiving and the company says no extra paperwork will be required with the complimentary scope being shipped with the order automatically.
Agilent has also developed an optional arbitrary waveform generation capability and five additional analysis applications have been added for its InfiniiVision 3000 X-Series oscilloscopes.
AWG enables the capture of waveforms with oscilloscopes and conversion of them to stimulus files to simplify stimulus/response testing.
The analysis options cover HDTV, MIL-STD 1553, ARINC 429 and FlexRay protocols, power system measurements, and advanced math functions.
David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
