Saelig introduces 2 GHz, four-channel digital oscilloscope series

16 August 2019

Saelig Company Inc. has introduced the new Rigol Technologies MSO8000 Series of digital oscilloscopes, which combine best in class sampling (e.g., 10 GSa/sec) and memory depth (e.g, 500 Mpts) with a modern, flexible interface enabled by Rigol’s new UltraVision II architecture and innovative Phoenix chipset. Three models are available, with input bandwidths from 600 MHz to 2 GHz, each with four analog channels. The series is MSO ready and an optional 16-channel logic analyzer interface provides digital debug capabilities with the addition of 16 channel probes and software.

The advanced MSO8000 Series features a 10.1 in, 1024 x 600, capacitive, multi-touch, color LCD screen with Source: Saelig Company Inc.Source: Saelig Company Inc.256-level intensity grading and a waveform refresh rate of up to 600,000 wfm/sec. The enhanced FFT capability offers real-time spectrum analysis of up to 1 Mpts of waveform data. The MSO8000 series user interface provides five distinct ways to interact with the instrument: LCD touch, traditional button and knob, mouse/monitor, PC control and remote web operation. A two-channel 25 MHz arbitrary waveform generator is also available.

The MSO8000 Series utilizes Rigol’s proprietary Phoenix chipset, which allows sampling at 10 GSa/s and integrates all of the front-end analog processing. All three models in the scope series provide non-stop recording and playback for a maximum of 450,000 frames of real-time waveforms using a segmented storage technique. Trigger conditions can be set to make a selective choice in capturing and saving the signals of interest.

With a total of seven unique integrated instruments (digital oscilloscope, 16-channel logic analyzer, spectrum analyzer, optional arbitrary waveform generator, digital voltmeter, 6-digit frequency counter and totalizer, and optional protocol analyzer), the MSO8000 Series allows customers to quickly identify and resolve complex design and debug challenges. The optional Protocol Analyzer supports RS232/UART, I2C, SPI, CAN, LIN, I2S, FlexRay, and MIL-STD-1553 serial bus. The protocol trigger and decoding operate on both the analog and the digital channels: RS232/UART, I2C, and SPI protocols. The Jitter firmware option supports real-time eye diagram and jitter analysis.

The MSO8000 Series is field-upgradeable to higher bandwidths and is equipped with hardware pass/fail test function in the standard configuration, which can be useful for long length signal monitoring during design, and production test. Setting the test mask on a known "standard" waveform allows an automatic comparison with the signal under test to show a successful or failed test.

The MSO8000 Series' external interfaces include USB host and devices, LAN(LXI), HDMI, Trig out and USB-GPIB (option). The series brings innovative analysis and visualization capabilities to embedded design, power analysis, serial decode and RF applications. Made by Rigol Technologies Inc., a manufacturer of precision electronic instrumentation for test and measurement, the MSO8000 Series digital oscilloscopes are available now from Saelig Company Inc.
