Rohde & Schwarz (www2.rohde-schwarz.com) has unveiled a two channel oscilloscope that provides hardware-accelerated analysis and measurement functions.
This two GHz oscilloscope features an ASIC that employs 20-fold parallel signal processing to ensure high acquisition rate and deliver quick results based on numerous waveforms, offering statistically relevant information.
Its hardware-assisted Fast Fourier transform (FFT) enables the oscilloscope to provide faster FFT function than other comparable oscilloscope offered in the market nowadays.
Meanwhile, the oscilloscope’s persistence mode can make sporadic signal interference, weak superimposed signals and rapid signal changes easily visible.
One of the first oscilloscopes to simultaneously display up to three waveforms in different ways in every channel, the R&S RTO1022 also allows users to flexibly combine waveform arithmetics and the type of data decimation. Thus, users can, among others, directly compare sample points with the envelope and the averaged waveform for effective debugging.
Every acquired sample of the oscilloscope can be validated by its digital trigger against the trigger definition. This allows for the triggering of even the smallest signal amplitudes. To achieve stable triggering, a trigger hysteresis can be set for the oscilloscope.
The R&S RTO1022’s digital trigger architecture allows it to adapt the digital lowpass filter’s cutoff frequency to the signal intended to be measured. Similar filter settings can be utilized for both the measurement signal and the trigger signal to suppress the RF noise on the trigger signal while the unfiltered measurement signal is being captured and displayed.
