Although primarily residential, Palo Alto has aerospace, electronics, and advanced research industries. , Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct. 26, 1998-- Hewlett-Packard Company, the world's leading supplier of logic analyzers, has extended the performance range of its benchtop logic analyzers by introducing four flexibly priced series with flat-panel color displays. Color displays make traces of data, timing waveforms and analog signals much easier to view and correlate.

"With 15 models to choose from and the combination of price/performance that we offer, our product line simply can't be matched."
Parametric and Mixed-signal Testing
The flagship HP 1660ES series features a built-in, two-channel digital oscilloscope oscilloscope (əsĭl`əskōp'), electronic device used to produce visual displays corresponding to electrical signals. Displays of such nonelectrical phenomena as the variations of a sound's intensity can be made if the phenomena are with integrated triggering and the ability to display analog signals with logic analyzer data. The scope offers 500MHz (MegaHertZ) One million cycles per second. It is used to measure the transmission speed of electronic devices, including channels, buses and the computer's internal clock. A one-megahertz clock (1 MHz) means some number of bits (16, 32, 64, etc. bandwidth, two-gigasamples-per-second sampling rate and 32K samples of memory. An integrated oscilloscope is most useful when both the triggering capability of a logic analyzer and the high resolution of an oscilloscope are needed to uncover tough hardware problems. For example, users can track elusive problems rapidly by viewing state, timing and analog information simultaneously on the analyzer screen using time-correlated markers.
Hardware Simulation and Stimulus-response Testing
For designers who need to perform functional test on systems when some of their subsystems are incomplete, the HP 1660EP series provides a built-in, 32-channel pattern generator.
Testing components early in the design process can decrease development time significantly. Users can stimulate devices under test to see how they respond to specific signals or clock speeds. Complex stimulus programs can be generated by using program macros, repeat loops, initialization in·i·tial·ize

Complex Debugging and Trouble-shooting with Deep Memory
The HP 1670E series includes one megasample of memory depth per channel as a standard feature to accommodate the need for deep memory in complex debugging. Deep-memory capture, needed whenever the symptoms of a problem are widely separated from their cause, saves debugging time because it provides a comprehensive view of system behavior. With deep acquisition memory, software engineers can view long periods of code execution, and hardware engineers can capture deep traces of timing information.
General-purpose Logic Analyzers
For designers who desire solid performance in a logic analyzer at an attractive price, the HP 1660E series provides a high degree of reliability at the lowest price in the new family of HP benchtop logic analyzers.
