Equipped with the industry’s deepest memory, the 16850 series provides the industry’s fastest timing capture, essential for accelerating digital system debugging. In addition, this family of portable logic analyzers offers the industry’s only combination of single-ended and differential probing options, helping designers bring their high-speed digital device designs to market faster.

Jay Alexander, vice president and general manager of the Oscilloscope and Protocol Group at Agilent, said: “As system speeds increase, our customers require faster, deep memory timing measurements on a large number of input channels, which is where the Agilent 16850 Series Logic Analyzers benefit. In addition to this capability, it comes with a variety of probing options that allow digital system designers the fastest possible debug for a variety of applications.”

Developers of high-speed digital devices can use a logic analyzer to speed up the debug and verification of system designs. Often they must condition on the indication of a problem (such as a time-out signal or an error flag) to trigger and measure, but in reality the root cause of the problem occurs long before the trigger point. The 16850 series provides deep memory with high-speed timing capture, enabling designers to trace the location of the root cause of a fault over time. The high sampling resolution of the 16850 series enables designers to differentiate between timing and functional issues, providing them with in-depth analysis capabilities that help them reduce debug and verification time and bring products to market faster.

The 16850 Series logic analyzers offer 2.5 GHz bandwidth on all input channels, 400 ps cycle timing capture capability, and up to 128 MSa of memory depth, timing capture 50% faster than any other portable logic analyzer on the market, while storing twice as deep.

The Agilent 16850 series offers a standard state data rate of 700 Mbps, as well as an upgrade option that can be upgraded to 1400 Mbps. Users can choose the memory depth according to their needs, from the standard 2 MSa up to 128 MSa. State speed and memory depth options can also be upgraded after the initial product purchase.

The Agilent 16850 Series also offers a 1.4 GHz trigger sequencer that can trace high-speed circuits and define very specific conditions on which to trigger to catch errors and quickly trace the root cause of failures.

The Agilent 16850 Series Logic Analyzers provide measurement solutions for a variety of bus and signal types. The FPGA dynamic probe application built into the logic analyzer program automatically captures signals inside Xilinx and Altera FPGAs through deep memory state capture.

Agilent has designed new low-cost detection devices for these analyzers, including flying leads and Mictor probes. Flying lead probes use single-ended data and differential clock inputs and are equipped with a variety of accessories to interface with target boards. The existing 90-pin connector probes used on Agilent’s Modular Logic Analyzers are also compatible with this analyzer, enabling this family of portable logic analyzers to be used for differential probing, DDR BGA probing, and DDR socket insertion fixtures probe.

Many embedded system designers use DDR2 and DDR3 memory in their designs. The 16850 Series Logic Analyzers provide a lower cost solution to capture and trace memory addresses and control buses with state mode, decode memory buses, and use compliance testing and performance analysis tools. The 16850 series provides address and control bus status tracking for systems equipped with DDR2 1333 and DDR3 1333 memory.
