Yokogawa-DLM200001 August 2014 - Yokogawa enhanced its DLM2000 mixed-signal oscilloscope with longer memory capabilities and a number of firmware improvements. In the new version, the length of the acquisition memory has been increased up to 62.5 Mpoints in the standard unit and up to 250 Mpoints with the extended memory option. This means that, with the maximum memory installed (/M3 option), in single-shot mode, a 10 kHz signal lasting for more than one hour can be captured.

RS-RTO-osci29 July 2014 — Rohde & Schwarz has expanded the application field of the R&S RTO oscilloscopes to include the testing of automotive Ethernet interfaces. In line with the OPEN Alliance test specification, the new R&S RTO-K24 compliance test software enables users to perform automated tests on BroadR Reach Ethernet interfaces. BroadR Reach technology makes it possible to combine multiple applications such as video streaming from rear view cameras and signal transmission from automotive radar systems to create a single, open and scalable Ethernet network inside the vehicle.

LeCroy-hvd-family17 July 2014 - Teledyne LeCroy introduced the HVD High Voltage Differential probe series delivering high common-mode rejection ratio (CMRR) across a broad frequency range. The new HVD differential probes are safe, easy to use and ideally suited for a variety of power electronics measurements. The wide 1500Vp-p differential voltage range and large offset capability provides maximum flexibility for capturing gate drive and control signals floating on a 1000 Vdc bus. This performance combined with 1% DC and low frequency gain accuracy means the HVD differential probes enable high precision, high voltage measurements.

NI-VirtualBench15 July 2014 – National Instruments (NI) announced VirtualBench, an all-in-one instrument that integrates a mixed-signal oscilloscope, function generator, digital multimeter, programmable DC power supply and digital I/O. Users interact with VirtualBench through software applications that run on PCs or iPads. The device provides the most common functionality affordably and opens up new possibilities for how engineers can use benchtop instruments.

LeCroy-WS300007 July 2014 - Teledyne LeCroy introduced the WaveSurfer 3000 series of oscilloscopes featuring the MAUI advanced user interface. This advanced user interface, previously available only on higher-end oscilloscopes, seamlessly integrates a deep measurement toolset and multi-instrument capabilities into a cutting edge user experience centered on a large 10.1" touch screen, the largest display and only touch screen in this class of oscilloscope. WaveSurfer 3000 oscilloscopes are available in bandwidths from 200 MHz to 500 MHz, with 10 Mpts/ch memory and up to 4 GS/s sample rate.

LeCroy-hdo800025 June 2014 - Teledyne LeCroy announced the HDO8000 oscilloscope product line with 8 analog input channels, 12-bits of vertical resolution utilizing Teledyne LeCroy's HD4096 technology, and up to 1 GHz of bandwidth. The HDO8000 oscilloscopes have maximum performance, going further (8 channels), with finer resolution (12-bits) and faster (up to 1 GHz bandwidth). A wide variety of mixed-signal, serial data, long memory, and probe options and accessories are available with the HDO8000 oscilloscopes.

Fluke-190-50424 June 2014 — Fluke introduced the Fluke 190-504 Series II 500 MHz ScopeMeter Portable Oscilloscope. The instrument achieves a 500 MHz at 5 GS/s real time sample rate in a 4-channel handheld, sealed, and rugged oscilloscope without compromising on safety rating, ruggedness, or battery operating time. The Fluke 190-504 fills the needs of professional electronic troubleshooters who need the fast 5 GS/s — or 200 pico seconds — sample rate and 4-channels for greater accuracy and clarity of shape and amplitude of unknown waveform phenomena like transients, induced noise and ringing or reflections.

Agilent-6000X29 April 2014 - Agilent Technologies introduced two new high-performance portable oscilloscope series deploying next-generation oscilloscope technology. The Infiniium S‐Series sets a new standard for signal integrity for bandwidths up to 8 GHz, while the InfiniiVision 6000 X-Series sets a new standard for price/performance with bandwidths up to 6 GHz.

RS-RTO-osci04 April 2014 -The R&S RTO digital oscilloscope family of Rohde & Schwarz now features an automated compliance test solution for Ethernet interfaces. The new R&S RTO-K22 and R&S RTO-K23 Ethernet compliance options allow users to perform standard-compliant automated tests on 10/100/1000BASE-T and 10GBASE-T Ethernet interfaces. All compliance tests meet IEEE and ANSI Ethernet test specifications.

Rigol-MSO-DS2000A03 April 2014 - RIGOL Technologies EU GmbH introduces the DS2000A-(S) series digital oscilloscope with a bandwidth from 70MHz to 300MHz. The specially designed analog front end delivers a lower noise floor and a wider vertical range (500 uV/div to 10 V/div) at full bandwidth.
