Yokogawa Electric (www.yokogawa.com) has unveiled a 500 MHz oscilloscope that delivers a maximum sampling rate of two GS/s, the DL7480 Digital Oscilloscope.
This benchtop-sized oscilloscope offers 16-bit logic input channels and eight analog channels, allowing users to simultaneously measure signals without synchronizing two separate oscilloscopes. It is specifically developed for users in search for an efficient and easy solution in a single unit, for handling measurements that demand two or more units.
With fast screen updating across all-points display mode, the DL7480 allows users to easily determine and view abnormal phenomena.
Its history memory feature divides the large recording memory into segmented blocks and instantly save a maximum of 4096 previously captured waveforms. By setting a shorter record length allows users to save more screens to its history memory.
The oscilloscope’s cycle statistics also allows users to automatically compute the minimum, maximum and average value as well as the standard deviation of certain waveform parameters for every period of a signal. It also enables users to determine the period corresponding to the calculated minimum and maximum values, and show that specific period in the zoom window.
Unlike some applications that requires users to determine the waveform period’s information for long periods of time, the DL7480’s long memory allows users to analyze long waveforms, period-by-period and based on the reference signal’s period.
Its pulse count function automatically counts pulses in the waveform data located between the cursors. Since the threshold level of identifying a single pulse is user-definable, users can reliably compute the pulses even when the signal levels are unstable.
