Santa Clara, CA (Scicasts) – Agilent Technologies has announced the availability of real-time spectrum analysis (RTSA) for its PXA X-Series signal analyzers.
Lausanne, Switzerland (Scicasts) – In the world of microscopy, this advance is almost comparable to the leap from photography to live television. Two young EPFL researchers, Yann Cotte and Fatih Toy, have designed a device that combines holographic microscopy and computational image processing to observe living biological tissues at the nanoscale.
Santa Clara, CA (Scicasts) – Agilent Technologies has announced the 34450A 51/2 digit Benchtop Digital Multimeter, designed to turbocharge electronic test and measurement applications for industrial and educational use.
Santa Clara, CA (Scicasts) – Agilent Technologies has introduced its Infiniium 9000 H-Series high-definition oscilloscopes. The four new models come in bandwidths of 250 MHz, 500 MHz, 1 GHz and 2 GHz. They offer up to 12-bit vertical resolution, which represents 16 times the quantization levels of traditional oscilloscopes with 8 bits of resolution.
