Two new 2-channel high-end oscilloscopes with a large 8in colour display have been introduced by Rigol Technologies. The DS2000E is a versatile high-performance oscilloscope that incorporates many of the latest technologies and processes. It has bandwidths of 100MHz and 200MHz, sample rates up to 1GS/s per channel and two analogue channels.
It fits many application areas, including research and development, universities and schools, production and development as well as the markets for communications, aerospace, industrial electronics, and many others.
The colour display enables better and clear signal representation and optimal display of additional information, such as cursor positions and their coordinates, mathematical parameters and more.
For recording and processing of measuring data a memory depth of 28 million points on each channel is available for large amounts of data, and with a waveform capture rate of 50,000 wafeforms/sec, the user can capture, display and evaluate fast signal sequences (decoding).
The smallest vertical scale is 500µV/div at a resolution of 8 bits. The device features a dual-YX mode and multiple trigger options like Edge, Pulse, Video, Slope, Pattern as well as interfaces for RS232/UART, I2C, SPI, USB, CAN, LIN.
Bus decoding for these communication interfaces is available. Hot keys for quick and easy operation are standard as well as the mask input for quick pass/fail decisions.
Rigol’s three-year warranty makes it easier for the user to switch from another provider without any risk.
The price range starts at 579.00 Euro. An extensive set of accessories is available including active and passive probes, high-voltage probes and a 19in frame, as well as software drivers for standard packages and high-level languages and the free operating software Ultrascope.
