Oscilloscope News

RS-RTO-osci29 September 2014 - The R&S RTO-K40 MIPI RFFE serial triggering and decoding option from Rohde & Schwarz is a powerful solution that enables developers of RF frontends and modules with RF frontend (RFFE) control interface to verify and debug designs and put these components into operation. The R&S RTO oscilloscope with its high acquisition rates and minimal blind times is able to trigger on MIPI RFFE-specific protocol data. The decoded protocol content is displayed in an easy-to-read format.

17 September 2014 - Keysight Technologies introduced DDR4 ball-grid array (BGA) probe interposer solutions for Infiniium Series oscilloscopes. Engineers can use the probes and oscilloscopes for debugging and characterizing DDR4 memory designs and testing device compliance with the JEDEC DDR4 standard.

NI-265VSA-0624142011 September 2014 – National Instruments announced a range of new software-designed instrument: 8-channel oscilloscope, RF vector signal analyzer, frequency digitizer and a high-speed serial instrument. Two years ago, NI introduced the first software-designed instrument, the vector signal transceiver.

Keysight-Infiniium 90000X04 September 2014 – Keysight Technologies announced the availability of a frequency domain analysis (FDA) option, the industry’s first user-extensible spectrum frequency domain analysis application solution for real-time oscilloscopes. The FDA option extends the capabilities of Keysight Infiniium and InfiniiVision Series oscilloscopes by enabling engineers to acquire live signals from the oscilloscope and visualize them in the frequency domain as well as make key frequency domain measurements.

BK-2190D front01 September 2014 -- B&K Precision introduces the new 2190D bench digital storage oscilloscope (DSO). This compact dual-channel DSO offers several measurement functions with 100 MHz bandwidth and 1 GSa/s sampling rate. Building on the success of the discontinued analog model 2190B oscilloscope, the 2190D now provides users with digital features including a 7” widescreen color display, waveform memory up to 40,000 points, pass/fail limit testing, digital filtering, waveform recorder, and 32 automatic measurements.

GWinstek-GDS-20021 August 2014 - GW Instek introduced a new-generation of digital oscilloscopes. The GDS-200/300 series oscilloscopes are equipped with USB storage function and can be positioned in portrait and landscape display. The recharging-battery design makes the series easy to operate for field operations. The GDS-200/300 series are applicable in laboratories, R&D, large electric system tests, power product tests, motor tests, solar power battery inspection and repair, and maintenance personnel who are always on field assignments.

07 August 2014 – Agilent / Keysight introduced the industry’s first Agilent-Z-Series-63GHzcompliance test applications for 100 Gigabit Ethernet networking systems. The Agilent N8830A 100GBASE-CR4, N8829A 100GBASE-KR4 and N8828A 40GBASE-CR4/100GBASE-CR10 test applications help network-design engineers accelerate turn-on and debugging of 100G Ethernet networking systems. The new applications automate the execution of physical-layer tests on Agilent Infiniium 90000 X-Series and 90000 Q-Series oscilloscopes and the new Z-Series oscilloscopes with up to 63-GHz bandwidth.

Tektronix-MDO4000B05 August 2014 – Tektronix announced a cost-effective compliance transmitter test solution for the Project 25 (P25) Common Air Interface (CAI) Phase 1 and Phase 2 standard. The new software gives RF test engineers and safety agencies the convenience of push-button measurements with automated pass/fail reporting and runs on Tektronix spectrum analyzers , all Tektronix Windows-based oscilloscopes, and on SignalVu-PC linked with the MDO4000B Mixed Domain Oscilloscope Series.

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.
