Keysight Introduces Portable Oscilloscope Families That Set New Standards in Price, Performance and Measurement Accuracy


Keysight Portable Oscilloscope FamiliesKeysight Technologies introduced new high-performance portable oscilloscope series deploying next-generation oscilloscope technology. The Infiniium S‐Series sets a new standard for signal integrity for bandwidths up to 8 GHz.
The Infiniium S-Series has the world’s fastest 10-bit ADC. Compared with traditional scopes with 8-bit ADCs, the S-Series has four times the vertical resolution for precise viewing of signal detail. Coupled with a new low-noise front end, the S-Series delivers an ENOB (effective number of bits) for the system of more than eight, the highest in the industry. The series includes bandwidths from 500 MHz to 8 GHz with four-channel DSO models and 16-digital-channel MSO models. Standard memory is 50 Mpts per channel or 100 Mpts per channel when interleaved, the deepest in the industry.
The S-Series features the industry’s most comprehensive application-specific measurement software, fueled by a powerful motherboard with 8-GB RAM, ensuring the scope stays responsive in all operating modes. Fast boot-up time and increased reliability is made possible with its solid-state drive. The 15-inch (38.1-cm) multi touch capacitive display is the largest in the industry, making it easier to see results and easier to use. Keysight also provides options for integrating MATLAB capabilities directly into the oscilloscopes, further increasing their measurement and analysis power for customers.
For general-purpose, high-speed differential probing with the Infiniium S-Series oscilloscopes, Keysight also introduced the new InfiniiMax III+ probing solutions, including 4-GHz, 8-GHz and 13-GHz differential active probes and new QuickTip accessories for InfiniiMax probes. The InfiniiMax III+ probes work with the full array of InfiniiMax III probe heads, including a wide range of solder-in probe heads, a browser head, ZIF (zero insertion force) tips, 2.92-mm/3.5-mm/SMA heads and the new QuickTip head.
