The Keysight Streamline Series USB oscilloscopes require minimum support from a central processing unit, since most of their core operations are handled by the MegaZoom IV smart memory ASIC. With MegaZoom, it includes hardware serial decoders and hardware mask/limit testing capability, GUI operation, as well as a WaveGen function/arbitrary waveform generator. Indeed, the P924xA USB oscilloscopes can perform many of the functions traditional digitizers do with software on the CPU.
Furthermore, the P924xA Series oscilloscopes can analyze more signals than ever before. This is why can analyze 1 million waveforms/ sec, whereby the waveforms are captured and plotted into hardware and then the waveform is subsequently transferred to the PC for display.
In line with the need to integrate the latest technology, Keysight pioneered the zone touch trigger, which allows easy capture of difficult-to-define trigger events. In this respect, the P924xA USB Oscilloscopes comes with Zone touch triggering which eliminates the complexity of setting up advanced triggers. In fact, the touch-enabled display can trigger on events by simply drawing a box with your finger on the display of the signal you want to isolate.
Review of Key specifications
With the mask limit testing measurement application, you can quickly test more than 200,000 waveforms per second to a known good waveform with quick go/no-go test results. This saves you valuable test time while providing you with more confidence in test results. Furthermore, this allows you to test signals to specified standards, and uncover unexpected signal anomalies. In fact, while mask testing on other oscilloscopes is usually based on software-intensive processing technology which tends to be slow, Keysight’s InfiniiVision oscilloscopes’ mask test option is based on hardware-based technology. This means that the P924xA oscilloscopes can perform more than 200,000 real-time waveform pass/fail tests per second. Additionally, this provides testing that is of faster magnitude than what is available on other oscilloscope mask test solutions – thus making valid pass/fail statistics almost instantly.
Moreover, the P924XA oscilloscopes supports a video IRE display grid, as well as cursors measurements performed in video IRE units for the NTSC and PAL standards. As for the decoding options, you can easily isolate serial packets to find sources of errors due to hardware or software-related problems. This is due to the fact that the I²C serial decode software option enables Inter-Integrated Circuit serial communication, resulting in responsive displays which are time-aligned, as well as an on-screen decoding function that can decode two serial buses simultaneously using hardware-based decoding.
