First scope based JTAG protocol application launched

Agilent Technologies has announced what it claims to be the industry's first scope based JTAG protocol application.

The company has expanded its Infiniium oscilloscope application portfolio with the JTAG protocol decode and triggering application. According to Agilent, its Infiniium Series is the first oscilloscope family to support JTAG triggering and protocol decode. The N8817A JTAG decode application performs the decode in real time instead of the traditional method of taking physical level measurements and manually decoding signals. The application is supported on Agilent's Infiniium 9000, 90000, and 90000 X-Series oscilloscopes, the last of which is said to include the 'fastest real time oscilloscopes' with real time bandwidth of 32GHz. Agilent claims that the new scopes offer the lowest noise and have the lowest jitter measurement floor in the industry.
