Teledyne LeCroy adds mixed signal capabilities to HD oscilloscopes
Teledyne LeCroy introduces the HDO4000-MS and HDO6000-MS high definition oscilloscopes which combine 16 channels of flexible mixed signal capabilities with HD4096 high definition technology, long memory, and a compact form factor, in bandwidths from 200 MHz to 1 GHz. All HDO models sport a large 12.1” touch-screen display and intuitive interface to enhance operation. Powerful debug tools, plus a full complement of automatic measurements, and waveform math capabilities turn the HDO-MS oscilloscope into an all-in-one analog, digital, serial debug machine.
With embedded systems growing more complex, powerful mixed signal debug capabilities are an essential part of modern oscilloscopes. In addition to 16 integrated digital channels, the HDO-MS oscilloscopes ship with a targeted set of digital debug tools. Analog and Digital Cross Pattern Triggering, Digital Timing Measurements, Parallel Pattern Search, Logic Gate Emulation and Activity Indicators are the ideal tools for precise circuit validation and fast debugging of complex embedded designs. These features complement the comprehensive HDO toolset which includes WaveScan search and find, history mode waveform playback, sequence acquisition mode, and LabNotebook report generation. Spectrum-analysis and power-measurement software packages extend the oscilloscopes’ capabilities while leveraging the 12-bit architecture with its wider dynamic range and improved measurement precision.
HDO4000-MS oscilloscopes feature a sample rate of 2.5 GS/s with up to 25 Mpts/channel of memory (up to 50 Mpts/ch when interleaved) in two- and four-channel models from 200 MHz to 1 GHz. The HDO6000-MS oscilloscopes are available in four-channel models and deliver sample rates of 2.5 GS/s; a maximum 250-Mpts/channel memory, and bandwidths of 350 MHz, 500 MHz, and 1 GHz.
