Teledyne LeCroy introduces two series of High Definition Oscilloscopes (HDO), the HDO4000 and HDO6000. These oscilloscopes acquire waveforms with a vertical resolution of 12-bit and a dynamic range of 72 dB, which results in waveform displays that are cleaner and crisper with 16 times more vertical resolution than traditional 8-bit instruments. Enhanced resolution filtering enables gaining up to three additional bits of resolution for 15-bit vertical resolution.
The new 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 oscilloscopes available in four-channel models deliver sample rates of 2.5 GS/s, a maximum 250-Mpts/channel memory, and bandwidths of 350 MHz, 500 MHz, and 1 GHz. All HDO models sport a large 12.1” touch-screen display and intuitive interface to enhance operation and also provide powerful debug tools, plus a full complement of automatic measurements, waveform math capabilities. These tools include 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 their 12-bit architecture with its wider dynamic range and improved measurement precision.
