Agilent Launches MSO - Analyst Blog

By
A A A

Agilent Technologies Inc. ( A ) recently launched Infiniium 90000 X-Series mixed-signal oscilloscope (MSO).

The six new models come in bandwidths of 70 MHz to 33 GHz and can capture 400 million points of data. It comes with the latest technology in noise and jitter measurement.

Oscilloscopes are used in various technical fields. They play an important role in the analysis of video quality in televisions and for monitoring vital functions in electrocardiogram and electroencephalogram instruments. They are also used extensively for control and sensor monitoring in automotive applications and in a broad range of industrial, engineering, telecommunications and medical equipment applications.

The MSO is used for extensive verification of electronic product designs and it helps in debugging the digital circuits. The new oscilloscopes are therefore  likely to offer the most accurate measurement.

Agilent is keeping up a steady flow of new products as there is now an unprecedented demand for wireless connectivity, data bandwidth and energy-related products stemming from the proliferation of connected mobile devices.

Agilent's revenue in the third quarter was flat sequentially and up 1.9% year over year, short of management's expectations of a 2-3% sequential increase ($1.77 billion to $1.79 billion). The newly added Diagnostics and Genomics segment accounted for 9.0% of revenue in the last quarter, up 47.2% sequentially.

Currently, Agilent Technologies has a Zacks Rank #3 (Hold). Other test equipment companies, such as National Instruments Corporation ( NATI ), Ametek Inc. ( AME ) and Cognex Corp. ( CGNX ), with Zacks Ranks of #1, #2 and #3, respectively are also worth considering.
