Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) today announced the Agilent U2020
X-series, the world’s fastest USB power sensors. With the peak and
average power measurement capabilities of a power meter, these compact
high-performance sensors allow engineers to test devices faster and with
greater efficiency and accuracy.
The product’s measurement speed (3500 readings per second or higher),
along with its internal zero and calibration function, enables users to
maximize test efficiency and reduce the cost of test in areas such as
high-volume component manufacturing, where every second and each
Agilent’s U2020 X-series sensors also come with built-in trigger
functions. The trigger-in function allows accurate triggering of small
signals close to the signal noise floor. (This is especially important
when analyzing complex signals with very low power outputs.) The
trigger-out port allows users to perform data logging while the
video-output feature gives users the flexibility to use the USB sensors
with an oscilloscope as an alternative method to display pulse signals
and measure pulse parameters.
With a compact USB form factor, U2020 X-series sensors help technicians
and engineers test faster and with greater ease. These sensors operate
without needing a power meter or external power supply, making them
space efficient in manufacturing lines. The sensors also provide a
portable, lightweight solution for field applications such as
base-station maintenance. And the N1918A Option 100 Power Analyzer PC
license key—bundled with each sensor—gives R&D engineers powerful
software that performs complex pulse analysis similar to a power meter.
"The Agilent U2020 X-series marks a significant breakthrough with the
fastest measurement speed in a USB power sensor,” said Ee Huei Sin, vice
president, Agilent’s Basic Instruments Division. "These compact and
high-performance USB sensors help users meet the growing test challenges
they face each day while offering a cost-effective alternative to
traditional bench solutions.”
