VSeriesKeysight Technologies Inc. (NYSE: KEYS) introduced the Infiniium V-Series oscilloscopes, which provide superior measurement accuracy, enhanced analysis tools and advanced probing systems. With models that range from 8 to 33 GHz, the V-Series enables circuit designers and engineers to make rapid progress from first silicon to eventual product release.

When engineers are designing high-speed digital products or components, they need an oscilloscope to help them debug, validate and optimize their designs, perform precompliance tests, discover the root cause of failures, and maximize design margins. The Infiniium V-Series offers engineers the capability to perform these tests faster and more accurately, allowing them to get their products to market faster and with more confidence in design quality.

The V-Series’ measurement accuracy leads the industry in three areas: 1) lowest oscilloscope noise floor, 2) lowest real-time oscilloscope jitter floor, and 3) highest number of effective bits. Based on a Keysight-proprietary indium phosphide integrated circuit process, these advantages enable developers to see highly accurate depictions of their signals and achieve tighter design margins.

To help designers find and debug their most challenging problems, the V-Series includes a 12.5-Gbps hardware serial trigger with a 160-bit sequence (the industry’s longest). Currently, this is the only hardware serial trigger capable of finding 132-bit USB 3.1 (128b/132b) or 130-bit PCIe® Gen 3 (128b/130b) symbols. The V-Series also includes the industry’s fastest mixed signal oscilloscope with 20-GS/s digital channels, which is ideal for triggering, analyzing and debugging DDR4 and LPDDR4 buses.

“The V-Series ensures timely validation and debug, whether designers are looking for answers across multiple serial lanes or a massively parallel bus,” said Dave Cipriani, vice president and general manager of Keysight’s Oscilloscope and Protocol Division. “When they choose the V-Series, R&D labs in today’s most competitive industries will be equipped to achieve greater clarity faster.”

To enable high-performance measurements at the probe tip, Keysight is also announcing the N7000A Series InfiniiMax III+ 8 to 20-GHz high-speed probing solutions. These probing solutions come with InfiniiMode, which enables convenient measurements of differential, single-ended and common-mode signals, using a single probe tip and connection. This capability complements the existing N2800A Series InfiniiMax III 30-GHz high-bandwidth differential probing solutions. In addition, the new N7010A active termination adapter, which is targeted for HDMI 2.0, DisplayPort and MIPI M-PHY Gear 3 and 4 applications, provides ultra-low-noise voltage termination (with adjustable voltage range from -4 V to +4 V) to a signal.

The expertise embedded in Keysight oscilloscope software applications saves time and effort. Compliance applications are certified to test the exact specifications of standards such as USB 3.1, PCIe Gen 3, LPDDR4, HDMI 2.0, 100G Ethernet and MIPI applications.
