Oscilloscopes range to the fore at embedded world

At embedded world in Nuremberg (February 26-28) Rigol Technologies will feature its portfolio of high-performance oscilloscopes includes the fully featured MSO/DS7000 Mixed-signal Digital Oscilloscope Series, introduced in 2018 and based on Rigol's state-of-the-art on-chip ASIC technology.

With bandwidths from 100MHz to 500MHz and sampling rates of up to 10 GS/s, this series is ideally suited for demanding applications in research, development and production. The instruments have a very large 10.1in. colour touch screen for clear signal presentation and for optimal display of additional information.

For recording and processing of large measurement datasets, a memory depth of up to 500 million points is available, and with a signal acquisition rate of up to 600,000wfms/sec, the user can acquire, display and evaluate fast signal sequences.

The fast analysis and visualisation capabilities were realised through the ultra-fast ChipSet of the latest UltraVision II architecture.

Dsecribed as a novelty the MSO5000 high-performance oscilloscopes have a 9in. colour touch screen, whose functionality is slightly below the MSO7000 series.

With bandwidths ranging from 70MHz to 350MHz and sampling rates up to 8 GS/s, these oscilloscopes are the more cost-effective solution for less demanding applications that require memory depths of up to 200 million points and signal acquisition rates up to 500,000 wfms/sec.

Representing the top of the range is the oscilloscope MSO8000 with bandwidths from 600MHz up to 2GHz and a multitude of highly efficient functions. This device is predestined for high-speed signal analysis in all high-tech industries.

The RSA5000 Series Real-time Spectrum Analysers are based on Rigol's newly developed Ultra Real technology, with the newly created complete platform making it possible to perform real-time measurements. The instruments feature a compact, elegant design, operation is via touch screen and it has a wide range of possible applications.

With an additional 3.2 / 6.5 GHz tracking generator, it can also be used as a "scalar" network analyzer.

The modular RSA5000 series provides four functions - GPSA – Spectrum Analyser, Real-time Spectrum Analyser up to a maximum bandwidth of 40MHz, EMI – Pre-compliance tests according to CISPR specifications (with the software S1210) and VSA – Digital Demodulation, an option planned in Q1 / 2019.

In addition, for the RSA5000 series Rigol will present its Vector Signal Analysis Software VSA, which will also be available from Q1 2019. This measurement application is integrated in the signal analysers and will also be available as an upgrade for existing RSA5000 instruments.

With the VSA application, the user has a comprehensive tool for demodulation and vector signal analysis to find problems in time, frequency and modulation domains.
