Teledyne LeCroy: 1 GHz oscilloscopes feature 10x oversampling up to 10 GS/s
Teledyne LeCroy introduces the HDO4000A, HDO6000A, HDO8000A, and MDA800A analog and mixed-signal oscilloscopes. These four high-definition oscilloscope product lines range from 200 MHz – 1 GHz bandwidth and utilize 12-bit HD4096 technology. All HDOs are ideal for debugging and troubleshooting power electronics, automotive electronics, and embedded/mechatronic designs with high-resolution sensor signals. They are the favored oscilloscopes in automotive, digital power management, power integrity, physics, and military/aero applications. The eight channels provided by the HDO8000A series are ideal for high power and/or three-phase power conversion testing and digital power management validation. MDA800A Motor Drive Analyzers, which are built on the HDO8000A platform, also perform three-phase electrical and mechanical power calculations with unique static and dynamic power views as well as complete control system validation.
HDOs owe their high performance to bandwidths up to 1 GHz, acquisition memory of up to 250 Mpt/ch, and 12-bit vertical resolution. There are also mixed-signal oscilloscope (MSO) options/models. All HDOs offer an extensive array of serial trigger, decode, measure/graph, and eye diagram (TDME) options. All of the above, coupled with many other general-purpose and application-specific probes and software options, have made the HDOs an industry favorite.
HD4096 High Definition Technology finds its roots in high-sample-rate 12-bit ADCs, high signal-to-noise ratio amplifiers, and low-noise system architecture. This technology enables HDO-A oscilloscopes to capture and display signals of up to 1 GHz at 16 times more resolution than other oscilloscopes. In the HDO-A oscilloscopes, HD4096 technology is augmented by Enhanced Sample Rate technology, which automatically ensures optimal display of acquired waveforms to the instruments’ full rated bandwidth.
All HDO-A oscilloscopes feature MAUI with OneTouch, which 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. This user interface 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. In sum, MAUI with OneTouch delivers a unique set of touchscreen gestures that simplifies measurement setup and brings unsurpassed efficiency and intuitiveness to oscilloscope operation.
