At the Electronica fair, Rigol Technologies introduced two 4-channel high-end oscilloscopes from the DS4000E series with a 9-inch color display. They offer interfaces including CAN.
The DS4000E is an oscilloscope that incorporates many of the latest technologies and processes: With bandwidths of 100 MHz and 200 MHz, sample rates up to 2 gigasamples/s per channel, and with four analog channels, the series fits many application areas, including research and development, universities and schools, production and development, as well as the markets for communications, aerospace, industrial electronics, and others. All models provide a 9-inch color display for better and clear signal representation and for optimal display of additional information, such as cursor positions and their coordinates, mathematical parameters and more.
For recording and processing of measuring data, a memory depth of 14 million points per channel is available for large amounts of data, and with a waveform capture rate of 60 000 waveforms/s, the user can capture, display, and evaluate signal sequences (decoding).
The smallest vertical scale is 1 mV/div at a resolution of 8 bits. The device features a dual-YX mode and multiple trigger options like Edge, Pulse, Video, Slope, Pattern, as well as interfaces for CAN, EIA-232/UART, I2C, SPI, USB, LIN, and Flexray. Bus decoding for these communication interfaces is optionally available. Hot keys for operation are customary as well as the mask input for pass/fail decisions. The price range starts at €1695. A set of accessories is available including active and passive probes, high-voltage probes, and a 19-inch frame, as well as software drivers, high-level languages and the free operating software Ultrascope. The Electronica 2016 fair takes place from November 8 to 11 in Munich, Germany. You can find Rigol in hall A1, booth 224.
