Oscilloscopes which will accelerate time to market across all generations of high-speed serial and optical designs have been launched by Keysight Technologies. The Infiniium UXR-Series of oscilloscopes boasts models ranging from 13 to 110GHz of true analogue bandwidth, offering investment protection that meets the needs of technology advancements today and tomorrow.

The Infiniium UXR-Series enables high-speed serial and optical designers, focused on current and next generation technologies, to quickly create comprehensive designs with higher margins, thereby reducing time to market of their innovation.

Performance levels, combined with a wide selection of bandwidth choices, mean the oscilloscopes can be used by engineers and designers working with any generation of DDR, USB, PCIe or other serial technologies, as well as PAM4, 5G, radar, satellite communications, and optical designs.

“Today’s electronic and communications systems have become more complex requiring next generation test and measurement,” said Jessy Cavazos, Industry Director, Test & Measurement, Frost & Sullivan. “Keysight’s deep heritage and extensive expertise in test and measurement is clearly reflected in the new UXR series of oscilloscopes, which deliver next generation innovations to address the rapidly evolving measurement and compliance needs in the high-speed digital, terabit and optical research, 5G, RF, and aerospace and defense markets.”

A low noise floor and high vertical resolution ensure measurements are not impacted by oscilloscope noise and signals are represented accurately. As a result, eye diagrams are significantly more open, and true margins and performance can be determined.

Features include 10-bit vertical resolution and excellent signal integrity for superior effective number of bits (ENOB), leading to faster compliance testing with higher margins, and sampling rates of 256GSa/s per channel on 40 to 110GHz models and 128GSa/s per channel on 13 to 33GHz models, creating accurate reconstruction of high-speed signals.

The oscilloscopes have up to four full-bandwidth channels with less than 35fs (rms) of inter-channel intrinsic jitter providing accurate timing and skew measurements, and an optional full factory grade self-calibration module which ensures ongoing measurement accuracy while reducing the need to take the unit out of service.

A chipset based on a Keysight proprietary Indium Phosphide (InP) process enables exceptionally wide bandwidth and extremely low noise floor.
