Recently, a new mask testing solution was introduced which has brought unprecedented mask testing speed to an affordable line of oscilloscopes from Agilent Technologies. Agilent's newly introduced hardware-accelerated mask testing solution for the InfiniiVision oscilloscope families (5000/6000/7000 model ranges) provides Six Sigma* test confidence in as little as 3 seconds (~100,000 tests per second). This level of mask testing speed (which is orders of magnitude faster than any other oscilloscope based mask testing solution currently on the market) can provide rapid insight for accelerating a design from development through manufacturing.

The following mask testing topics will be covered:

  1. Using mask testing to compare a measured signal against a known good signal using built-in automask mask generation capability.
  2. Testing signal limits using a pre-defined mask file containing violation limits.
  3. Gaining confidence in long-term system reliability by using the statistical methods in Six Sigma as part of your mask testing methodology.
  4. Isolate and investigate infrequent signal anomalies using mask testing.

*Six Sigma is a service mark registered to Motorola and in this context refers to the 3.4 defects per million opportunities (DPMO) that is the minimum requirement to say that a process meets "six sigma quality".
