If you haven’t purchased an Agilent oscilloscope lately,why should you consider one now?Leading-edge technology for allscope usersThe InfiniiVision 5000 Seriesoscilloscopes leverage the samethird‑generation MegaZoom IIItechnology blocks used in ourhigher performance bench and laboscilloscopes – responsive deepmemory, fast update rates withminimal “dead time,” analog-likedisplay systems, and integratedserial analysis – and deliver them ina compact package, at a price similarto oscilloscopes with older technologyblocks.Industry-leading customer supportDon’t take our word for itAs the world’s leading test andmeasurement vendor, Agilentmaintains the largest network of salesengineers, application engineers,support engineers and technicians.From pre-sales collaboration, tocalibration, to training and consulting,to repair and servicing, Agilent standswith you throughout the life of yourproduct.

Why does deep memory matter?See more timeYou don’t have to stitch togethermultiple acquisitions or set precisetriggering conditions. Spend lesstime finding events, and more timeanalyzing them.Seeing more time is the most easilyunderstood use of deep memory. Themore samples you acquire, the moretime you can see at a particular samplerate.See more detailsLong capture times give you bettervisibility into cause-effect relationshipsin your design, which greatly simplifiesroot-cause debugging. It also allowsyou to capture start-up events (likethe start-up sequence in Figure 1) in asingle acquisition.The relationship between memorydepth and acquisition rate isn’t asobvious. All scopes have a “banner”maximum sample rate specification,but many can only sustain these ratesat a few timebase settings.In the case of an oscilloscope with a5 GSa/s acquisition rate and 10‑Kpts ofmemory (Figure 2), those 10,000 pointscan only fill 2 μs of time. Since scopeshave 10 time divisions, the sample ratedrops at any time/div setting below200 ns/div.As a result, if you look at “slow/fast”events like a modulated signal, yourun the risk of aliasing your signal. Oryou may simply miss out on importantsignal details when you zoom in on it.Deep memory oscilloscopes let yousustain a high sample rate over longerperiods of time.Always fast, always onMegaZoom III is the third generation ofthe fast and deep memory architecturethat Agilent introduced in 1996. It’snot a special mode, unlike other deepmemory oscilloscopes. You have accessto your MegaZoom memory at all times.And the display will respond instantlyto your commands as you scale the /div setting or pan and zoom in theDelayed (or “zoom”) window.Figure 1.Inflection occurs at200 ns/divInflection occurs at10 µs/div (20 s with single-shot trigger)10 GSa/s1 GSa/sSample Rate100 MSa/s10 MSa/s1 MSa/s100 kSa/s10 kSa/s1 s/div1ms/divTime Base5 GSa/s, 10k memoryFigure 2.44 GSa/s, 1M memory10ms/div100ms/div1s/div

Why does a fast update rate matter?If the human eye has troublediscerning above 30-50 frames persecond, is there really a differencebetween 3,600 and 100,000waveforms per second? If you knowwhat you’re looking for, the answeris probably “no.” However, if you arehunting for unknown signal anomaliesor characterizing jitter, the answeris “yes.”Acquisition timeDead timeAcquisition timeIf you know that there is a glitch inyour system, it’s easy to capture itusing a pulse-width trigger. However,if you are just browsing through yourdesign, your chances of finding a glitchincrease as the oscilloscope’s updaterate increases. If a glitch occurs duringthe "dead time" between samples,you miss it (Figure 3). With MegaZoomIII technology, the dead time is muchsmaller (Figure 5). A scope with aslower update rate will capture theglitch eventually (if it recurs), but mostengineers and technicians don’t havethe time or patience to wait for theirtools to catch up.If you are characterizing signal jitter,a fast update rate gives you accurateresults sooner. And when the fastupdate rate is combined with the 5000Series’ XGA high-definition display(1024 x 768, 256 intensity levels),subtle differences in these acquisitionsbecome obvious.And like all other aspects ofMegaZoom III technology, this updaterate is delivered as a default real-timeacquisition mode. It’s always fast,always on.Dead timeFigure 3.

Rise time, fall time, X at max Y(time at max volts), X at min Y (time at min volts), delay, and phase on oscilloscope channels only.CounterBuilt-in 5-digit frequency counter on any channel. Counts up to the oscilloscope’s bandwidth.Threshold definitionVariable by percent and absolute value; 10%, 50%, 90% default for time measurementsCursorsManually or automatically placed readout of horizontal (X, ΔX, 1/ΔX) and vertical (Y, ΔY). TrackingCursors provides an additional mode for cursor positioning beyond the current manual method. Whencursor tracking is e
