Want to show off your cool project? E-mail moreinfo@keysight.com and your project could be featured here!   Quinton Martins, the leader of the Mountain Lion Project at the Audubon Canyon Ranch (ACR) in Northern California, had a problem.  Mountain lions needed to be trapped and GPS-tagged for research, but traditional trapping methods were just… (Show more)

Have you ever wondered how radio stations work? What about WiFi, or cell phones? These technologies (and countless others) all use modulation to send data at the same time, without interfering with each other! If electromagnetics wasn’t part of your college coursework, or you haven’t spent hours browsing Wikipedia, modulation of waveforms can be… (Show more)

Have you ever set up your oscilloscope without a proper trigger? If so, you probably experienced something a little bit like this: *disclosure – don’t watch this on repeat if you’re prone to epileptic fits*   In this case, I had an edge trigger and the level was set above my waveform.  The oscilloscope could not find any waveform data at that… (Show more)

Oscilloscope users are constantly reviewing the signals of their design in the “normal” time vs voltage display of the scope.  It is easy to overlook the FFT (Fast Fourier Analysis) view of the same signal. It is a completely different way of reviewing the signal characteristics that often reveals clues to some very difficult to solve problems.… (Show more)

 Oscilloscopes are used to measure and evaluate a variety of signals and sources. They also play a major role in both design and manufacturing, providing a visual display of voltage over time. Many times oscilloscope users need more than a visual representation and want to validate the quality and stability of electronic components and systems.… (Show more)

What is the best oscilloscope for your application? The following areas will help you make an accurate and informed decision. Today’s complex electronics industries require a broad spectrum of test equipment, with oscilloscopes being one of the most fundamental tools used by engineers and technicians. Oscilloscopes provide design and manufacturing… (Show more)

Here in Keysight Oscilloscopeland we talk a lot about our ASICs (application specific integrated circuits). But why? Who cares about the architecture of a cheap oscilloscope? All that matters is how well it works, right? We agree. That’s why we design and use oscilloscope-specific chips for all our scopes.   How, though? Custom ASICs don’t just… (Show more)

Lab benches are many times cluttered with multiple pieces of test equipment. Keysight’s InfiniiVision Oscilloscopes are equipped with a built in digital voltmeter, frequency counter and totalizer giving the oscilloscope user additional measurement options that can reduce the amount of test equipment needed. In addition, when you only measure the… (Show more)

In oscilloscopes and oscilloscope probes, bandwidth is the width of a range of frequencies measured in Hertz. Specifically, bandwidth is specified as the frequency at which a sinusoidal input signal is attenuated to 70.7% of its original amplitude, also known as the -3 dB point. Most scope companies design the scope/probe response to be as flat as… (Show more)

Keysight continues to invest in the very popular InfiniiVision X-Series oscilloscopes with new oscilloscope models, new options, and customer-requested enhancements. Every 6 to 8 months, Keysight releases new firmware that our customers can download into their InfiniiVision scopes at no cost. The latest release of firmware (version 7.10) for the… (Show more)
