Agilent Technologies (www.agilent.com) has released the U1604B handheld digital oscilloscope, a full featured oscilloscope from its U1600 Series that provides maximum flexibility for current and future needs.
This dual channel oscilloscope offers an integrated DMM and DMM data logging functions. Featuring a bandwidth of 40 MHz, the scope’s DMM measurement functions include an ohmmeter for two-wire resistance, diode, capacitance and continuity tests, a voltmeter for AC voltage, DC voltage and true RMS AC + DC voltage measurements, as well as an auxiliary meter for ampere, temperature measurement.
With a maximum real-time sampling rate of 200 MSa/s, the U1604B oscilloscope effectively captures repetitive and instantaneous signal anomalies.
Capturing non-repeating signals at a higher sampling rate will never be a problem with the scopes physical memory of up to 125 kilobytes. The scope’s record length of 125,000 points enables users to zoom in particular areas of interest and view the signal’s most subtle details at a specific time-base setting.
The U1604B oscilloscope comes with versatile triggering capabilities that enable users to capture and isolate the condition that will be characterized. To deliver the flexibility needed to capture the signal, the scope features advanced triggering functions such as pulse width, edge, video signal and pattern triggering.
Aside from the standard Cual Waveform Math (DWM) function, the U1604B model is also equipped with a FFT (Fast Fourier Transform) function. Using four windowing techniques (Hanning, Rectangular, Black-Harris, Hamming), the FFT function allows users to view the waveform in a frequency domain. The scope’s DWM function allows users to perform math functions for signal subtraction and addition from multiple channels.
The scope’s capability is expanded by PC Link application software that collects, stores and documents data needed from instrument through USB 2.0 full-speed connection.
