Pico DeepMeasure17 August 2017 - Pico Technology introduced the DeepMeasure analysis tool. Included as standard with PicoScope 3000, 4000, 5000, and 6000 Series oscilloscopes, DeepMeasure delivers automatic measurement of waveform parameters on up to a million successive waveform cycles. Results can be easily sorted, analyzed and correlated with the waveform display.

GWInstek MDO 2000E04 August 2017 - GW Instek launched the new MDO-2000E series multi-functional mixed domain oscilloscopes. The series includes two feature combinations : MDO-2000EG and MDO-2000EX. MDO-2000EG models have a built-in spectrum analyzer and a dual channel 25MHz arbitrary waveform generator and MDO-2000EX models feature a built-in a spectrum analyzer, arbitrary waveform generator, a 5,000 count DMM, and a 5V/1A power supply. The first of its kind, MDO-2000EX is the only oscilloscope to equip with a DMM and a power supply in the T&M industry.

25 July 2017 - Pico Technology has released a new PicoSDK driver package installer for its PicoScope oscilloscope and PicoLog data loggers for Microsoft Windows. This release adds drivers for the latest PicoScope 2000A and 2000B models and the PicoScope 4444, as well as various fixes for other drivers. The PicoSDK (consisting of the drivers, Programmer’s Guides and software examples) allows the development of custom applications and integration into other systems.

PeakTech 136020 July 2017 - Peaktech launched the new developed 100 MHz digital storage oscilloscope 1360 featuring 12-bit technology and a 8" touchscreen with a resolution of 800x600 pixel. The 2-channel oscilloscope includes also a full digital multimeter with voltage, current, resistance and capacitance measurement functions. Additionally arbitrary waveforms can be outputted with the integrated 25MHz waveform generator.

Micsig DP Series18 July 2017 - Micsig, a designer and producer of tablet and handheld oscilloscopes, introduced high voltage differential probes featuring a bandwidth of up to 100 MHz and a maximum differential test voltage (DC+ Peak AC) of up to 1300 V. The probes also offer a switchable attenuation of 50X and 500X.

Pico Modbus11 July 2017 - Pico Technology has enhanced its PicoScope analysis capabilities with the addition of Modbus ASCII and Modbus RTU decoders. It is currently the only oscilloscope range capable of analyzing Modbus (RS-232/RS-485) signals, making it the perfect tool for troubleshooting industrial PLC applications – from installation and commissioning to maintenance and repair operations.

AA MS21629 June 2017 - Analog Arts introduces the mixed signal oscilloscope MS216. It is a 5-in-1 USB-powered oscilloscope and features 2 analog and 16 digital channels. It includes a mixed signal scope, an oscilloscope, a spectrum analyzer, a data recorder, and a frequency and phase meter. MS216 has been developed to meet the requirements of wide range of applications.

Rigol Chipset26 June 2017 - RIGOL Technologies announced its new Phoenix Oscilloscope chipset and the Ultravision II oscilloscope architecture. These technology innovations, years in development, are intended to help transform the RIGOL portfolio allowing RIGOL to address the needs of higher performance applications. The ASICs are based entirely on RIGOL IP and were developed entirely inhouse.

RS ScopeRider Handheld20 June 2017 - Rohde & Schwarz has enhanced its R&S Scope Rider handheld oscilloscope, adding triggering and decoding software for the CAN flexible data rate (CAN-FD) and single edge nibble transmission (SENT) bus systems. It is currently the only portable oscilloscope capable of analyzing CAN, LIN, CAN-FD and SENT bus signals, making it the perfect tool for troubleshooting automotive applications – from commissioning to drive tests.

Tek 400G PAM414 June 2017 – Tektronix has expanded its line-up of PAM4 test solutions to include comprehensive 400G electrical compliance testing for OIF-CEI-56G VSR/MR/LR PAM4 standards. The new 400G-TXE software package runs on high-performance Tektronix DPO70000SX Real-Time Oscilloscopes; a lineup of models which go up to 70 GHz in bandwidth. The automated turnkey solution performs PAM4 compliance test sweeps in a single pass for shorter test times, more reliable and repeatable results, and greater ease of use.
