The votes are in. Business-to-Business publisher WTWH Media, LLC, has announced the winners of the 2019 Leadership in Engineering Achievement Program (LEAP) Awards, a design engineering product competition honoring the most exciting new products in a host of technology areas: Additive Manufacturing, Advanced Materials, Analog Electronics, Connectivity, Embedded Computing, Fastener Technology, Hydraulics, Industrial Automation, Mechanical, Motion Control, Pneumatics, Power Electronics, Software, Switches & Sensors, and Test & Measurement.
Taking top honors in the Test & Measurement category this year was the MSO8000 Series Oscilloscope from Rigol Technologies. Rigol says the new scope brings exciting capabilities to embedded design and serial analysis applications. Expanding on RIGOL’s UltraVision II technology that includes a completely redesigned touch interface, high sampling, deep memory, and advanced analysis capabilities the MSO8000 now adds key functions previously reserved for expensive high-performance oscilloscopes. These new capabilities are designed to complete serial data analysis applications by adding Jitter and real-time eye analysis. UltraVision II enables four serial-decode sources including standards such as RS232, I2C, SPI, LIN, CAN, FlexRay, I2S, and 1553B. Engineers can debug faster and more efficiently with serial decode, jitter, and eye pattern analysis all in one instrument.
Additionally, Rigol says the MSO8000 Series delivers unparalleled sampling and memory depth which are critical to the analysis of high-speed signals. The MSO8000 can sample at up to 10 GSa/sec with a standard memory depth of 500 million points. These features deliver the data required for deep memory analysis of timing and jitter as well as creating the eye pattern that includes thousands of bit transitions at high speeds overlayed.
Additionally, while competitors often use Windows-based or other custom interfaces for these advanced analysis tools RIGOL has included them in the standard UltraVision II interface making it easy for engineers to learn and use the newest tools. The combination of outstanding specifications and advanced analysis all in one instrument makes the MSO8000 a unique oscilloscope for serial data analysis applications, Rigol says.
Congratulations to Rigol and to the other winners of this year’s event.
