Agilent Technologies' LXI-Based Oscilloscopes Make Industry Magazine's Annual Top-Products List

Oct 11, 2007

Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) today announced it has received an award for innovation from Mesures magazine, a Paris-based monthly that reports on instrumentation and industrial automation. In its 12th annual Palmars Technologique awards, Mesures highlighted Agilent's 6000L Series low-profile oscilloscopes, which are based on the LAN eXtensions for Instrumentation (LXI) standard and are optimized for use in test systems.

Every year, Mesures editors identify the top products featured in the publication, with an emphasis on innovative new products. Describing why Agilent's 6000L Series oscilloscope was chosen, Mesures cited the scope's extremely compact design and the absence of extraneous features. Mesures' French-language article about its list of top products is available on the Web at

Last year, Mesures honored Agilent's series of six LXI-based microwave instruments with a Palmars Technologique award. These modular instruments were the first to comply with the Class A LXI standard, which is the most demanding in terms of synchronization and triggering.

"Agilent is honored to accept the award from Mesures," said Jay Alexander, vice president of Agilent's Design Validation Division. "This second award is another sign that LXI is reaching critical mass, and that momentum for this standard is growing worldwide."

The Agilent 6000L Series digital storage oscilloscopes (DSOs) offer four channels of measurements in a compact, rack-mountable 1U-high form factor, giving engineers the industry's most space-efficient way to integrate oscilloscopes into their automated test systems. Engineers building design verification and functional test systems can easily do fast test setup and reduce test execution time by controlling the instrument via LAN, GPIB or the Web. Offered at the lowest price for the performance, the 6000L Series provides superior value in the automated test market.

U.S. Pricing and Availability

Pricing for the Agilent 6000L Series oscilloscopes starts at $5,300. They are available now.

About LXI and the LXI Consortium

LXI is the LAN-based successor to GPIB. The LXI standard goes beyond GPIB to provide additional capabilities that reduce the time it takes to set up, configure and debug test systems. LXI also helps integrators leverage the time and effort already invested in system software and architecture. The standard is managed by the LXI Consortium, a not-for-profit corporation comprised of leading test and measurement companies. The group's goals are to develop, support and promote the LXI standard. LXI's flexible packaging, high-speed I/O, and prolific use of LAN address a broad range of commercial, industrial, aerospace and military applications.

Additional information about LXI-compliant products as well as licensing, specifications and consortium membership is available at
