Mixed Signal Oscilloscope

Posted on September 25, 2013

Rigol Technologies has introduced a new mixed signal oscilloscope designed to allow users to tackle more extensive signal analysis and digital decoding for testing and debugging of a wider range of analog/digital signals. The MSO4000 oscilloscope has 16 digital and up to four analog channels at bandwidths ranging from 100 to 500 MHz.

Incorporating 28 Mpts memory depth in each digital channel and 140 Mpts in analog channels, the MSO4000 series delivers fast sample rates of 1 GSa/s digital and 4 GSa/s analog and has a high digital waveform capture rate of up to 85,000 wfms/s, the company said.  Rigol said its UltraVision technology allows for real time waveform recording, replay and analysis of up to 200,000 frames (64,000 frames with digital), as well as a low noise floor with minimum analog vertical sensitivity measuring 1mV/div.

MSO4000 series supports serial bus triggers (standard) and decoding (optional) for both analog and digital channels. The new RPL2316 Logic Probe Adaptor is designed to make high speed digital measurements easy and convenient with support for multiple logic levels and a high quality, flexible interface.

The MSO4000 series incorporates intuitive front panel controls and a 9 in.  WVGA screen with a 256-level intensity grading display, plus multiple trigger functions and several connectivity choices, including LAN (LXI-C), VGA, AUX, USB Host & Device, and USB-GPIB (optional).
