Scope Probing System Extends To 30 GHz

The InfiniiMax III oscilloscope probing system from Agilent Technologies now includes frequency coverage to 30 GHz. The addition of four new models with bandwidths from 16 to 30 GHz supports the firm's new Infiniium 90000 X-series oscilloscopes with bandwidths to 32 GHz. Mike McTigue, Principal Design Engineer for the InfiniiMax III probing system and recent winner of Agilent's Bill Hewlett award for innovation, explained: "The InfiniiMax III probing system represents the convergence of new technologies, state-of-the-art design methodologies, and our experience from developing two generations of award-winning probe systems. This combination allows us to deliver breakthrough performance that was previously unimaginable." The probes employ a proprietary indium phosphide (InP) integrated-circuit (IC) process and thick-film packaging technology to achieve breakthrough performance within tight geometric constraints. A wide range of probe heads allows connection using a browser, zero-insertion-force (ZIF) tip, 2.92-mm or 3.5-mm SMA cable or solder-in tips.
