Infiniium MXR-Series Oscilloscope

Keysight Technologies has announced the new Infiniium MXR-Series mixed signal oscilloscope to help customers in reducing test bench and workflow complexity. This is done to achieve higher performance along with accurate and repeatable multi-channel measurements in a single instrument. The oscilloscope can combine the efficiency of an 8 in 1 bench solution with simultaneous 8 channels at 6 GHz and 16 simultaneous digital channels performance, thereby helping engineers get from symptom to resolution speedily.

The all-new oscilloscope offers state-of-the-art ASIC-driven processing resulting in 8 powerful instruments in one, including a real-time spectrum analyzer (RTSA), oscilloscope, digital voltmeter (DVM), waveform generator, Bode plotter, counter, protocol analyzer, and logic analyzer. Besides, it has an extensive suite of software solutions that are focused on power integrity, high-speed digital test, and verification. Its built-in software includes a fault hunter function that makes the root cause identification and resolution of rare or randomly occurring errors a quick and easy process.

With the introduction of this oscilloscope, Keysight has tried to fill an important gap to enable engineers across a range of industries to use one instrument to produce the measurements required to deliver products with speed and quality. The Keysight Infiniium MXR series oscilloscope will benefit customers in different ways. It is the eight powerful instruments in one that reduces bench clutter, setup, and test time while minimizing crosstalk issues. Incorporating a real-time spectrum analyzer, it achieves a 100 percent probability of detection in the frequency domain for asynchronous errors too. Its built-in fault hunter function makes it learn normal signals and compare them over time to find abnormal signals, capturing everything else that occurs when the abnormal signals happen. This results in rapid problem resolution for troubleshooting irregular, random, or spurious signals.

Its simultaneous 8 analog channels and 16 digital channels enable monitoring and analysis of complex signal interactions. Coupled with 3X higher bandwidth compared to any other 8 channel oscilloscopes, it allows test engineers to open a wider and more insightful window into designs. Moreover, the powerful remote collaboration with PathWave Infiniium Offline Analysis software allows designers to do extensive analysis and data manipulation after bench measurements are complete, enhancing the efficiency and effectiveness of the test bench.
