SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) today expanded its Infiniium oscilloscope application portfolio with Ethernet 64b/66b protocol decoding and triggering software. Agilent’s Infiniium Series is the first and only oscilloscope family to support 64b/66b triggering and protocol decoding.

Until now, the only available scope-based protocol solutions were for buses such as I2C, SPI, CAN or 8b/10b-based decoding schemes, leaving 64b/66b developers manually decoding difficult designs. The Agilent N8815A Ethernet 10Gbase-KR decode application decodes in real time, enabling teams to develop higher-quality products more quickly.

Ethernet 64b/66b is used primarily in today’s data networking and transmissions technologies. FibreChannel, Ethernet, and Infiniband are just a few of the technologies that benefit from 64b/66b’s lower overhead. Agilent’s N8815A software is designed to benefit designers of the 10Gbase-KR and 40Gbase-KR technology defined as IEEE 802.3, which operates over backplane lanes. The new application takes advantage of Infiniium’s recently released multiple serial decoding and searching, allowing designers to look at four lanes at once.
