86100D oscilloscope

Expanding its digital communications analyser (DCA) portfolio, Agilent Technologies Inc. has launched the 86100D DCA-X wide-bandwidth oscilloscope that offers high analogue bandwidth, low noise and low jitter measurements on signals from 50Mbit/s to over 40Gbit/s.

The modular DCA platform can be configured for optical, electrical, TDR/TDT, and S-parameter measurement capability. The DCA-X mainframe platform allows engineers to make next-generation measurements that include integrated de-embedding capability. It also features advanced signal processing such as filtering, FFT, differentiate and integrate functions, as well as new measurement capability, including Data Dependent Pulse Width Shrinkage (DDPWS), uncorrelated jitter (UJ), J2, J9 and more.

The DCA-X is 100 per cent backwards compatible with all previous DCA modules and code compatible with the 86100C. With future modules, the DCA-X will be able to support up to 16 measurement channels. Higher channel counts will enable electrical and optical engineers to test their parallel designs efficiently, and it offers higher throughput for manufacturing.

Agilent also has upgraded N1010A FlexDCA remote access software so it now supports both the 86100C DCA-J and 86100D DCA-X. N1010A is a PC-based version of the DCA-X user interface that extends control of the scope to a remote PC (via LAN to a lab or home office PC) and allows engineers to analyse waveforms offline.

Pricing starts at Rs.9.87 lakh ($21,500) with four-week delivery. The 86100D-SIM InfiniiSim-DCA waveform transformation software starts at Rs.2.30 lakh ($5,000) with 10-week delivery.
