Farnell element14 shipping Keysight Technologies ultra-low cost oscilloscope series

Farnell element14, the Development Distributor, is now shipping the Keysight Technologies Ultra-Low Cost Oscilloscope Series. The range has 50 to 100 MHz models delivering professional-level functionality, industry-leading software analysis and 6-in-1 instrument integration, giving users even more value for money and saving valuable bench space.


The Keysight’s InfiniiVision 1000 X-Series oscilloscopes has been developed for price conscious electronic design engineers, students and hobbyists, offerings more features and an enhanced performance when compared with the Keysight 1000 series.


The 1000 X-Series uses Keysight’s unique MegaZoom IV custom ASIC technology which enables a high 50,000 waveforms per second update rate. This makes it easier to see random and infrequent glitches and anomalies that similarly-priced oscilloscopes might miss. The 1000 X-Series also has a high sampling rate of up to 2 GSa/s and comes standard with two probes. The oscilloscopes use segmented memory capability to maximise memory depth while helping the scope test faster.


In addition to being an oscilloscope, the 1000 X-Series is also a serial protocol analyser, digital voltmeter and frequency counter—and the EDUX1002G and DSOX1102G models include a frequency response analyser and WaveGen function generator. Bode plot fundamentals are easy to teach with the built in WaveGen and frequency response analysis.


The 1000 X-Series provides professional-quality measurement and software analysis capability. The scope features 24 typical oscilloscope measurements to quickly analyse signals and determine signal parameters. Additional signal analysis is provided by the gated FFT function, which allows users to correlate time and frequency domain phenomenon on a single screen. And mask limit testing is also available to help users easily detect signal errors. The 1000 X-Series supports decoding and analysis of a wide range of popular embedded and automotive serial bus applications, which include I2C, SPI, UART/RS232, CAN and LIN.


Key features include:

·      50 MHz to 100 MHz – fully upgradable

·      More signal details with 50,000 wfms/sec update rate.

·      6-in-1 Integration: Oscilloscope, Frequency response analysis, WaveGen function generator, Serial protocol analyser, Digital Voltmeter, Frequency Counter.

·      built-in frequency response analyser with Bode plotting

·      USB Save

·      Connectivity Compatibility and offline analysis software.

·      Multi language support


The InfiniiVision 1000 X-series is ideal for students and new scope users due to its low cost and ease of use. The industry-standard front panel features built-in help so that new users can quickly analyse signals and deliver results. The series also comes with an Educator’s Resource Kit included, making teaching oscilloscope labs easier. The Resource kit provides additional tools for teachers, and learning resources for students, from built-in training signals, a comprehensive oscilloscope lab guide written specifically for undergraduate students, to an oscilloscope fundamentals slide set for professors and lab assistants.


Dave Cipriani, vice president and general manager of Keysight’s Digital Photonics Centre of Excellence said: “When designing the 1000 X-Series, we looked for ways to aggressively reduce costs while delivering a high-quality product. We are excited to offer customers a low-priced solution that delivers excellent measurement performance and software analysis capabilities.”


James McGregor, head of Test and Tools, Premier Farnell, added: “We are seeing increased demand for high value test equipment, driven by an expansion of the market as product development moves beyond traditional design houses to start-ups and entrepreneurs. The features included in the 1000 X-Series offers professional level capabilities that are unrivalled at an entry level price point. This range supports Premier Farnell as it helps customers of all sizes with the skills and tools to bring their products to market.”
