RIGOL unveils new 12 bit high definition oscilloscopes for high speed signal integrity applications

19 October 2022

The best value in test just got better with the introduction of the HDO series of high definition oscilloscopes by RIGOL Technologies. Featuring true 12-bit resolution, HDO oscilloscopes are available in 70 MHz to 800 MHz bandwidths and two or four channels. The HDO series is powered by the new UltraVision III platform featuring a custom ASIC chipset, which also provides for dramatically lower front-end noise. The higher resolution and lower noise enable users to analyze much smaller signal artifacts with greater speed and accuracy.
HDO4000 oscilloscopes are available in 200 MHz to 800 MHz, 4 channels, 4 GSa/sec sampling, 100 μV/division range and 250 MPts of memory standard (500 MPts optional). HDO1000 scopes offer 70 MHzSource: RIGOL TechnologiesSource: RIGOL Technologies to 200 MHz bandwidth, two or four channels, 1 GSa/sec sampling, 500 μV/division range and 50 MPts of memory standard (100 MPts optional). Both series feature 12 bit resolution and a 10.1 inch intuitive touch screen display. They also incorporate RIGOL's new UltraAcquire Burst Capture mode, which makes it possible to visualize dynamic signals in multiple display modes while minimizing down time between trigger events.
RIGOL's new oscilloscope technology and ASIC chipset enable sampling with true 12 bit resolution. This reduces the quantization level between bits by a factor of 16 for far superior precision. In addition, the new chipset delivers a significantly lower noise floor than traditional oscilloscopes. RIGOL's UltraAcquire Burst Capture completes this new technology package by allowing users to capture signals at a faster rate and to visualize them in multiple display modes including density, waterfall, perspective and mosaic.
