Agilent Technologies Introduces Customizable, Easy-to-Use Display Test Solutions for IT, Consumer Electronics Manufacturing

Sep 08, 2008

Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) today released a display tester designed for easy, customizable setup for visual testing of up to five major display formats. It is suitable for testing FPD and CRT displays as well as LCD panels in PC and TV manufacturing.

The Agilent U8101A supports all major analog (S-Video, YPbPr, CVBS, VGA) and digital (HDMI and DVI) interfaces, and allows for future upgrades to new interfaces. The flexibility of multiple plug-in card slots enables test technicians and engineers to customize instrument configuration according to their needs, a capability that differentiates the U8101A from other testers in its class.

Unlike typical device testers, Agilent's display tester uses a 5.7-inch color LCD display and Windows(tm)-based graphical user interface (GUI) to simplify test pattern selections. From the user-friendly front panel, operators can easily select different display formats, test configurations and other frequently used functions. Coupled with the capability to recall up to 16 test sequences and patterns, these features help minimize manual input errors and reduce test setup time. In addition, the U8101A comes with USB capability for convenient high-definition patterns and image transfer to tester and hassle-free firmware upgrades.

"The U8101A's intuitive GUI and customizable configurations reiterate Agilent's commitment to enhance customer experience," said Ee Huei Sin, vice president and general manager of Agilent's Basic Instruments Division. "This display tester also sets the benchmark for scalable, cost-effective test solutions as users only need to purchase test cards according to their test requirements."

U.S. Pricing and Availability

The Agilent U8101A display tester is available now. Pricing starts at $7,250, depending on card configuration. Standard options are as follows:

  • U8101A- 801 (consists of HDMI card, DVI card, VGA card and TV card) at $12,250

  • U8101A-802 (consists of DVI card and VGA card) at $8,800

  • U8101A-803 (consists of TV card) at $7,600
