Santa Clara, Calif. Agilent Technologies Inc. claims to introduce the industry's first pulse function arbitrary noise generator, which is said to provide superior signal quality combined with versatile waveforms. Together, these features help engineers develop quality products with a reduced design cycle. The instrument is aimed at general-purpose bench tests or advanced serial data stress tests.
The Agilent 81150A pulse function arbitrary noise generator provides versatile waveforms for pulse generation as well as noise generation for stress testing. It can be used with Agilent's 5/6/80000 Infiniium real-time oscilloscope or DCA-J sampling oscilloscope for serial data testing.
Key features include the following:
- Accurate signals test the device, not the source, with intrinsic jitter of 8 ps rms at any frequency
- 13 standard functions, modulation capabilities up to 10 MHz and more than 80 measurement types
- Integration into one instrument, which minimizes cabling, space and test time
- Differential output and high-voltage amplifier for state-of-the-art devices
The Agilent 81150A will be shown for the first time at DesignCon, Feb. 4-7, 2008, in Booth 305.
Pricing: Available now in one-channel and two-channel versions, prices start at $8,900.
