Agilent / HP / Keysight 54520A
54520A 2 Channel, 1 GSa/s Monochrome Digitizing Oscilloscope
The Agilent/HP 54520A portable oscilloscope allows choosing the channel count and sample rate performance that you need. The 54520A scope includes a rich feature set that helps remove stress and strain from your testing.
If less single bandwidth is needed, the two channel HP 54520A/C offers the 500-MHz repetitive bandwidth, but offers lower sample rates.
The Agilent 54520A oscilloscope has dedicated knobs for vertical, timebase, and trigger. These familiar controls are coupled with 32K of memory per channel and an extensive problem-solving feature set that is ideally suited to everyday bench use.
The Agilent 54520A scope has all of the features that you would expect in a scope plus more. Use of sequential single shot is recommended to capture successive single shot events without capturing the dead time in between.
It is a great tool for applications such as pulsed laser research, high-energy physics, and pulse echo. Use glitch trigger to find the causes of anomalies in circuit operation.
Trigger on hard-to-see narrow glitches down to 1 ns wide. Use FFT’s to get a second perspective of your test waveform. This feature is good for identifying signals, determining signal fidelity, or to analyze high-speed transients in the frequency domain.
The Agilent 54520A allows generating and storing own template masks; then comparing test waveforms to the stored template for pass-fail testing. Or set your own limits on any of the 23 automatic waveform parameter tests.
Incoming waveforms are measured with up to three tests at a time and passed or failed according to your limits. Waveforms can be saved and time-stamped upon failure of either waveform compare or limit test. Up to 665 failures of 500 points each can be stored in multiple memory and sent to a printer, plotter, or a computer via HP-IB.
Use peak detect to improve your confidence when using the 54520A scope at lower sweep speeds. Scopes without peak detect can miss narrow events at slow sweep speeds. Peak detect allows seeing any event as narrow as 1 ns wide.
The Agilent 54520A scope offers an internal 3.5 inch, 1.44 MB disk drive which can be used to download software upgrades to the instrument’s flash ROMs. The disk of 54520A can also store waveforms, instrument setups, and screen images in standard formats such as TIFF and PCX.
The features included in 54520A are: advanced logic triggering, push-button automatic setup, hardcopy output, full HP-IB programmability, pretrigger viewing, TV triggering, voltage and time markers, pan and zoom, user-controlled sample rate independent of sweep speed, user controlled record length, fast update rate, fast overdrive recovery and more.
