Embedded World 2014 – Agilent Technologies Inc. has announced a next-generation user interface for its Infiniium real-time oscilloscopes. The new user interface takes advantage of new display technologies and significantly enhances the user experience by offering faster documentation, personalized viewing and improved usability.Infiniium oscilloscopes with the new user interface allow engineers to easily manipulate their data across multiple monitors and move windows, charts and measurement results to where they want them on the screen. See a short video demonstration .
The new interface can be used on oscilloscope mainframes as well as offline on a PC with Agilent’s N8900A Infiniium offline analysis software . Infiniium offline software resolves the oscilloscope-processing bottleneck by allowing engineers to view, analyze, share and document their results somewhere other than where they perform the tests, or at a different time.To enable engineers to create better documentation faster, the new interface displays bookmarks and composite files—documentation features previously unavailable in oscilloscope user interfaces. Because Infiniium offline software makes it possible to run the new user interface on a PC, engineers can more easily share information with design partners, vendors and customers using USB flash drives, email or Web conferencing.
The Infiniium user interface::
- offers separate dockable windows for time, frequency and protocol measurements for user-customizable views
- saves composite files to enable file sharing across multinational companies
- migrates a full-featured real-time oscilloscope user interface to the PC for rapid navigation and powerful viewing/analysis
- offers smart markers that dynamically update delta values coupled with annotated axis values for faster debugging
- offers transportable and server-based licensing to facilitate sharing. Not only can users share data, they can also lend application licenses.)
The N8900 Infiniium offline analysis application supports protocol decode for I²C; SPI; RS-232; RS-422; RS-485; UART; JTAG; CAN; CAN symbolic; LIN; FlexRay; USB; PCIe(r) gen 1, 2 and 3; MIPI D-PHY and M-PHY; DigRF; 8B/10B; SATA/SAS; HDMI; DDR1, 2, 3 and 4; LPDDR 1, 2 and 3; and 64B/66B Ethernet for faster debugging of designs that include serial buses.
Oscilloscope users can see a demonstration of the new Infiniium user interface at the Embedded World Conference 2014 through Feb. 27 .
