23 March 2017 – Tektronix introduced new optical modules for its DSA8300 sampling oscilloscope that feature the industry’s highest mask test sensitivity and lowest noise along with new features that increase production capacity and improve yield for current 100G designs moving into production. The company also unveiled enhancements to its 400G test solution including IEEE Ethernet standard-driven Transmitter and Dispersion Eye Closure (TDECQ) PAM4 and related support measurements for optical testing.
22 March 2017 - TiePie engineering introduced the Handyscope HS6 DIFF, a USB 3.0 four channel high resolution oscilloscope with differential inputs is available in models with 50 MS/s up to 1 GS/s sampling rate. The Handyscope HS6 DIFF features TiePie engineering's unique SafeGround technology, differential inputs that can safely be switched to single ended.
20 March 2017 - Rohde & Schwarz introduced the R&S RT-ZVC02/04 multichannel power probe. The R&S RT-ZVC02 power probe offers two current and two voltage channels, the R&S RT-ZVC04 four current and four voltage channels in addition to the analog oscilloscope channels. Up to two R&S RT-ZVC02/04 probes can be connected to an R&S RTE or R&S RTO oscilloscope for up to 16 additional test channels. This allows automatic testing of even critical power-up sequences on CPU mainboards and FPGA circuits.
16 March 2017 -- Rohde & Schwarz broadens its oscilloscope portfolio with the new R&S RTB2000 low cost oscilloscope. Starting at just EUR 1,250, it features touchscreen operation, 10-bit vertical resolution and 10 Msample acquisition memory on each oscilloscope channel and delivers functionality previously only available in substantially higher priced oscilloscopes.
15 March 2017 - The new mixed-signal oscilloscope MSO-2000 is based on the software and hardware platforms of the GDS-2000E, which features a waveform update rate of 120,000 wfm/s and 10M memory depth per channel. The series includes MSO-2000E and MSO-2000EA. MSO-2000E has a built-in 16-channel logic analyzer and MSO-2000EA has a built-in 16-channel logic analyzer and a dual channel 25MHz arbitrary waveform generator.
13 March 2017 - Pico Technology introduced the PicoScope 4444 high-resolution differential oscilloscope. This instrument features four true differential input channels and a range of accessories for measurements from millivolt to 1000 V CAT III applications. The new PicoScope addresses the perennial problem of making accurate voltage waveform measurements on circuit elements that are not ground-referenced, without the risk of short circuits that could damage the device under test or the measuring instrument.
02 March 2017 – Keysight Technologies announced the InfiniiVision 1000 X-Series oscilloscopes. This new low-cost oscilloscope series, with a starting price below €450 (EUR), has 50 to 100 MHz models that feature unique, Keysight-custom technology. The oscilloscopes deliver professional-level functionality with industry-leading software analysis and 6-in-1 instrument integration.
27 February 2017 - Pico Technology added CAN FD decoding to its PicoScope 6 software. This software, available free of charge for all PicoScope oscilloscopes, delivers advanced features such as serial decoding, channel math, mask limit testing and spectrum analysis, while maintaining a clear, uncluttered display with easy-to-use controls.
23 February 2017 – Keysight Technologies announced ten new PXIe instruments, including a new arbitrary waveform generator (AWG) that includes three highly synchronized channels for precise tuning of IQ waveforms and envelope tracking, as well as the industry’s first full-featured PXI oscilloscope. The AWG and oscilloscopes provide up to 1 GHz bandwidth to support complex baseband IQ signal generation and analysis for evaluating emerging 5G and aerospace & defense wideband technologies.
09 February 2017 - The robust, handheld R&S Scope Rider of Rohde & Schwarz now combines the functionality of eight instruments, making it the most versatile oscilloscope in its class. New features include a spectrum analyzer, a frequency counter and a harmonic analyzer for evaluating the quality of power supplies. The right tool is always available, both in the lab and when on the road performing installation, service and maintenance activities.
