The WaveRunner 8000 oscilloscopes with bandwidths from 500 MHz to 4 GHz have been launched by Teledyne LeCroy. The instruments deliver an extensive toolbox coupled with a superior user experience to expedite solving debug problems. The WaveRunner 8000 marks the debut of the next-generation MAUI advanced user interface, bringing enhancements to the oscilloscope’s UI. The addition of OneTouch to MAUI makes measurement setup incredibly easy, speeding up dramatically the time to insight into complex signal abnormalities.

The standard collection of math, measurement, debug, and documentation tools provides excellent analysis capabilities. Application-specific packages enable streamlined debugging for common design/validation scenarios. Options include digital filtering, spectrum analysis, device and switching power supply analysis, and more.

The advanced customisation option enables user-defined parameters and math functions providing unique and limitless analysis capability.

The WaveRunner 8000 and MAUI with OneTouch extends Teledyne LeCroy’s long tradition of user-interface innovation. MAUI with OneTouch optimises convenience and efficiency by enabling all common operations with a single touch of the display.

MAUI with OneTouch 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. MAUI with OneTouch delivers a unique set of touchscreen gestures that simplifies measurement setup and brings unsurpassed efficiency and intuitiveness to oscilloscope operation.

A wide variety of application packages is available to meet all serial data test challenges, ranging from automated compliance packages to flexible debug toolkits. A suite of protocol specific measurement and eye diagram packages is available to complement the industry’s most intuitive trigger and decode packages.

Timing and bus measurements allow quick and easy characterization of a serial data system. Measurement data can be graphed to monitor system performance over time. Identify physical layer anomalies with eye diagram mask testing and mask failure locator.

The SDAII architecture provides fast updates and eye diagram creation. Combined with up to 128 Mpts record lengths and complete jitter decomposition tools, SDA II provides a fast and complete understanding of why serial data fails a compliance test.

Whether debugging eye patterns or other compliance test failures, the WaveRunner 8000 Series rapidly isolates the source of the problem.

Advanced jitter decomposition methodologies and tools provide more information about root cause. Tj Analysis, RjBUj Analysis and DDj Analysis are simplified with the deepest toolset dedicated to providing the highest level of insight into your serial data signals.

Application-specific packages enable streamlined debugging for common design/validation scenarios. The advanced customisation option enables user-defined parameters and math functions providing unique and limitless analysis capability.

A 40GS/s sample rate allows for a detailed edge reconstruction even for signals with the fastest rise times. Long memory allows for maximum sample rate to be maintained in longer timebases. Deep memory of 128 Mpts is ideal for debugging long term behaviour on high speed serial data buses.
