Industry's First Probing Solution for Oscilloscope Measurements in Extreme Temperatures.

Oct 29, 2007

Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) today announced the industry's first probing solution for making oscilloscope measurements in environmental chambers and in other settings with extreme temperature conditions.

The Agilent N5450A InfiniiMax extreme-temperature extension cable, used with the InfiniiMax Series probing system and Agilent Infiniium oscilloscopes, gives engineers the ability to probe signals at temperatures ranging from -55 C to 150 C. The cable provides an ideal solution for designers working in the cell phone, automotive electronics, storage device and consumer electronics industries who need to validate and characterize their designs while operating within extreme temperature ranges.

Evaluating devices inside an environmental chamber is an essential part of product validation in applications such as automotive electronics validation, cell phone operation conformance and hard-disk-drive endurance testing. Until now, testing in extreme temperature ranges required engineers to use probes outside their specified operating temperatures, which can damage probes.

"The award-winning InfiniiMax Series probe system has a unique and innovative topology that allows engineers to connect different probe heads, depending on their use models," said Jay Alexander, vice president and general manager of Agilent's Design Validation Division. "By providing the extreme temperature probing solution, we have extended our offering to help engineers solve one of their challenging test problems."

The extreme-temperature extension cable provides an extra probing distance of 92 cm (36 inches) and two different operational temperature ranges, depending on probe head configurations. When used with the Agilent N5381A differential solder-in probe head, it provides engineers with the widest temperature range coverage of -55 C to 150 C, which is the maximum temperature range specified for automotive-industry testing. When used with the Agilent E2677A differential solder-in probe head, E2678A differential socket probe head, or N5425A/26A ZIF tip, it allows engineers to probe in the temperature range from -25 C to 80 C.

U.S. Pricing and Availability

The Agilent N5450A InfiniiMax extreme-temperature extension cable is available for purchase now at a list price of $1,400.
