Low-end scopes get upgrade option

“On-customer-site” MSO Upgradeability is being offered by Rigol Technologies for its low end Oscilloscope Series DS1000Z. It will now be possible to start with the low-priced DS1000Z-plus model and upgrade the mixed signal functionality later when this new requirement arises. This offers more flexibility and secures the initial investment of customers.

An example is the measurement on controllers and components which utilise analogue and digital signals. A typical case which requires a Mixed Signal Oscilloscope is testing Analogue-Digital or Digital-Analogue-Converters.

From now on the Oscilloscope models DS1000Z (70/100MHz) and DS1000Z-S (70/100MHz) will be delivered as –Plus instruments. These are pre-requisited with the 16 channel Logic Analyser function. Buying the MSO-Upgrade Kit, which consists of a new label and the 16-channel Logic Analyser Probe set, enables the new functionality. Immediately after receiving and installing the upgrade kit the scope is ready for the new applications. The existing MSO1000Z (70/100MHz) and MSO1000Z-S (70/100MHz) models remain in the market. Buying a MSO right at the beginning offers a price advantage. All additional enhancement options like serial decoding (RS232/I2C/SPI), memory extension (12Mpts to 24Mpts), Record function (segmented memory) and extension of trigger types are also later upgradable via a software license.

The new MSO-Upgrades cannot be utilised on already bought DS1000Z Oscilloscopes.
