WaveRunner 8000 oscilloscopes with bandwidths from 500 MHz to 4 GHz incorporate a next-generation MAUI advanced user interface with a OneTouch measurement setup.
Developed by Teledyne LeCroy, the scopes include a standard collection of math, measurement, debug, and documentation tools. 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 customization option enables user-defined parameters and math functions providing unique and limitless analysis capability.
The MAUI with OneTouch optimizes convenience and efficiency by enabling all common operations with a single touch of the display. MAUI with OneTouch has 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 touchscreen gestures that simplify measurement setup.
Teledyne LeCroy offers optional software packages to equip WaveRunner 8000 for all serial data test requirements ranging from automated standards compliance packages to flexible debugging toolkits. A suite of protocol-specific measurement and eye diagram packages provides insight into serial data anomalies. These packages complement trigger/decode software providing the ability to extract decoded data and plot over time, perform bus timing measurements, and create eye diagrams for testing against standard or custom masks. The -MS models have 16 digital lines which can be used for trigger, decode, and measurements for analyzing timing irregularities or for general-purpose debug of digital designs. This allows analog channels to be reserved for observing physical layer defects.
With an sample rate of 40 GS/sec, WaveRunner 8000M models enable detailed edge reconstruction, even for signals with fast rise times. Additionally, long memory allows maintenance of the maximum sample rate in longer timebases. The “M” models’ 128-Mpt memory is usefule for debugging long-term behavior on high-speed serial data buses.
The WaveRunner 8000 is available in six different models with US list prices ranging from $14,000 to $29,900. Additionally, -MS versions of each model are available with 16 digital channel sampling at 1.25 GS/s for an additional $3,000.
