Santa Clara, Calif. Agilent Technologies Inc. says it has introduced the industry's first probing solution for making oscilloscope measurements in environmental chambers and in other applications with extreme temperature conditions. The Agilent N5450A InfiniiMax extreme-temperature extension cable, used with the InfiniiMax Series probing system and Agilent Infiniium oscilloscopes, gives engineers the ability to probe signals at temperatures ranging from -55°C to 150°C. The cable provides a suitable solution for designers working in the cell phone, automotive electronics, storage device and consumer electronics industries that need to validate and characterize their designs while operating within extreme temperature ranges.
The extreme-temperature extension cable provides an extra probing distance of 92 cm (36 inches) and two different operational temperature ranges, depending on probe head configurations. When used with the Agilent N5381A differential solder-in probe head, it provides engineers with the widest temperature range coverage of -55°C to 150°C, which is the maximum temperature range specified for automotive industry testing. When used with the Agilent E2677A differential solder-in probe head, E2678A differential socket probe head, or N5425A/26A ZIF tip, it allows engineers to probe in the temperature range from -25°C to 80°C.
Pricing: The Agilent N5450A InfiniiMax extreme-temperature extension cable is available for purchase now at a list price of $1,400.
