M1 Waveform Tools™

YOUR oscilloscope or digitizer should only run the best...

What M1 can do for your Keysight/Agilent Technologies Z series Infiniium oscilloscope

The DSO/DSA Z series is a popular instrument family, and is supported by M1 Waveform Tools.

  • Keysight/Agilent is a leading manufacturer of oscilloscope hardware. M1 will dramatically expand the contribution this instrument makes on your measurement workflow at a very reasonable cost. It will provide richer analysis, debug and exploration, and accelerate your project's measurement work with capabilities like collaboration, analysis automation, automatic detection of signal-integrity faults, and a rich library of measurements and compliance applications without the need to program. M1 includes the capability to directly interface with popular programming tools such as LabVIEW, MATLAB, C#, Perl and Python to provide access to the entire set of measurements and automations. If you're like most users, your digitizer shares lab space with a mixture of test equipment from different manufacturers that make digitizers or real-time oscilloscopes. Keysight/Agilent/Acqiris, Tektronix, Teledyne/LeCroy, NI, GaGe, Yokogawa, Rohde & Schwartz, Spectrum, and Teradyne/ZTEC – having a tool that supports them all with a common UI, analysis engine, automation language and data format just simplifies your work significantly.

    Did you know...?

    1. M1 Waveform Tools supports more Keysight/Agilent scope models than Keysight/Agilent software does? More Tektronix scope models than Tektronix... etc.

    2. M1 not only works on ALL your real-time scopes, but it also supports digitizers and your EDA tools as well. One tool, across all your hardware, end to end – from concept/EDA through R&D, characterization, production test and field deployment.

    3. M1 can automatically detect a full range of known signal-integrity faults.

    4. M1 still supports every scope it has ever supported? We never stop supporting a supported model. This allows your hardware investment to remain on the functionality state of the art line its entire life.

    5. A site license (every scope, every laptop) for M1 probably costs less than what you’re spending on the software for just ONE scope each quarter, or what you’re spending on the software load for just 10 rental scopes.
