05 April 2016 - Teledyne LeCroy introduces the WaveRunner 8000 oscilloscopes with bandwidths from 500 MHz to 4 GHz, which deliver an extensive toolbox coupled with a superior user experience to expedite solving debug problems. WaveRunner 8000 debuts the next-generation MAUI advanced OneTouch user interface making measurement setup incredibly easy, speeding up dramatically the time to insight into complex signal abnormalities.
The standard collection of math, measurement, debug, and documentation tools provides unsurpassed analysis capabilities. Application-specific packages enable streamlined debugging for common design/validation scenarios. Options include digital filtering, spectrum analysis, device and switching power supply analysis, and more. The advanced customization option enables user-defined parameters and math functions providing unique and limitless analysis capability. The WaveRunner 8000 has the greatest breadth and depth of tools, ensuring quick resolution of the most complicated debug tasks.
OneTouch User Interface
The WaveRunner 8000 and MAUI with OneTouch extends Teledyne LeCroy’s long tradition of user-interface innovation. MAUI with OneTouch optimizes convenience and efficiency by enabling all common operations with a single touch of the display. MAUI with OneTouch has revolutionary drag-and-drop actions to copy and set up channels, math functions, and measurement parameters without lifting a finger. Common gestures such as drag, drop, pinch, and flick facilitate instinctive interaction with the oscilloscope. The “Add New” button quickly enables a new channel, math, or measurement while traces and parameters turn off with a flick of a finger. MAUI with OneTouch delivers a unique set of touchscreen gestures that simplifies measurement setup and brings unsurpassed efficiency and intuitiveness to oscilloscope operation.
Exceptional Serial Data Analysis
A wide variety of application packages is available to meet all serial data test challenges, ranging from automated compliance packages to flexible debug toolkits. A suite of protocol specific measurement and eye diagram packages is available to complement the industry’s most intuitive trigger and decode packages.
Isolate events using the serial bus trigger and view color-coded protocol information on top of analog or digital waveforms. Timing and bus measurements allow quick and easy characterization of a serial data system. Measurement data can be graphed to monitor system performance over time. Identify physical layer anomalies with eye diagram mask testing and mask failure locator.
The SDAII architecture provides fast updates and eye diagram creation. Combined with up to 128 Mpts record lengths and complete jitter decomposition tools, SDA II provides a fast and complete understanding of why serial data fails a compliance test. Whether debugging eye patterns or other compliance test failures, the WaveRunner 8000 Series rapidly isolates the source of the problem. Advanced jitter decomposition methodologies and tools provide more information about root cause. Tj Analysis, RjBUj Analysis and DDj Analysis are simplified with the deepest toolset dedicated to providing the highest level of insight into your serial data signals.
Very Powerful, Deep Toolbox
The standard collection of math, measurement, debug, and documentation tools provides unsurpassed analysis capabilities. Application-specific packages enable streamlined debugging for common design/validation scenarios. The advanced customization option enables user-defined parameters and math functions providing unique and limitless analysis capability.
M Models for Maximum Sample Rate and Memory
An industry leading 40 GS/s sample rate allows for a detailed edge reconstruction even for signals with the fastest rise times. Long memory allows for maximum sample rate to be maintained in longer timebases. Deep memory of 128 Mpts is ideal for debugging long term behavior on high speed serial data buses.
QualiPHY is designed to reduce the time, effort, and specialized knowledge needed to perform compliance testing on high-speed serial buses. It guides the user through each test setup, performs each measurement in accordance with the relevant test procedure, compares each measured value with the applicable specification limits, fully documents all results, and QualiPHY helps the user perform testing the right way
Multi-tab Display Architecture
Unique Q-Scape multi-tab display architecture speeds up your understanding of your design with 4x the display area. Acquired or calculated waveforms can be located on any of four different “tabbed” oscilloscope grid displays, with individually selectable grid styles available for each tab. Quickly move waveforms to different tabs using drag-and-drop. Extended desktop supports Ultra HD (UHD) 3840 x 2160 pixel displays.
With the XDEV option, third party programs can be completely integrated into the oscilloscope’s processing stream. Create customized math functions and parameters using C/C++, MATLAB, Excel, JScript or Visual Basic without leaving the oscilloscope application - and view the results directly on the oscilloscope, in real-time.
