Following its launch in the spring of this year, Rigol Technologies’ MSO8000 series is now fully available. With bandwidths from 600MHz, 1GHz and 2GHz (BW usable for 2 channel) and a maximum sampling rate of 10GS/s, the MSO8000 series is ideally suited for high speed and instantaneous signal acquisition and analysis.

Typical applications include automated testing in factories, serial bus protocol analysis in automotive electronics, electronic circuit measurement, switching power measurement and analysis in the power field and many more.

All devices feature a very large 10.1 inch capacitive colour touch screen with 256 intensity levels and colour grade for precise and clear signal presentation.

For recording and processing of measuring large amounts of data, a memory depth of up to 500 million points is available, and with a waveform capture rate of up to 600,000wfms/sec, the user can capture, display  and evaluate fast signal sequences with up to 450,000 frames.

The MSO version of these high-end oscilloscopes has also been extended with additional professional functions.

The instruments feature a new integrated measurement method with real-time eye diagram and jitter analysis software, highlighting the jitter trend for digital analysis.

Versatile Trigger-, Math- and Displaying features (enhanced FFT @ 1 Mio points, Mask Test and Power Analysis) and integrated signal search function are available.

All Serial Bus protocol analysis (Decode/Trigger- Options), Build-in Voltmeter, Counter, totalizer, protocol analyser and an 2 channel Arbitrary Function generator completes the integration of 7 in 1 instruments.

Various interfaces such as USB Host, USB Device, HDMI, LAN, USB-GPIB (adapter), and AUX OUT are available.

As a special feature Rigol offers all enhancements, such as higher bandwidths, MSO-Ready with 16 digital channels, memory expansion, serial decoding, and the 2-channel Arb waveform generator functions via software upgrade. The instruments are covered by Rigol’s three year guarantee.

A full range of active and passive probes, high-voltage probes and 19-inch mounting frames, software drivers for popular packages and high-level languages, as well as free UltraScope operating software and web remote control are also available.
