LeCroy Corp. disclosed that its new WaveRunner 6000A series of digital oscilloscopes (DSOs) marks a new level of performance for everyday testing scopes.

The DSO's combination of accurate signal capture, smooth user interface and ability to upgrade to a dedicated analyzer makes it unique for this class of scope, the company said. It offers many improved features, including the LabNotebook function that simplifies documentation and report generation.

DSO features

To ensure that signals are captured in detail, the WaveRunner DSO samples at a full 5GSps on each channel. This capability means that anomalies like high frequency transients and sharp edges are captured. Other scopes in the same class can only use a single channel at 5GSps and degrade to 1.25GSps per channel when more than 2 channels are in use, LeCroy said.

Another feature, the new built-in LabNotebook functionality, enables engineers to save waveforms and setup data; make text or handwritten notes easily; and convert results to pdf, rtf or html documents for file sharing.

According to the company, a major advantage is being able to annotate (in text, or "scribble" with a stylus) the captured waveforms. Simply pressing the hard-copy button brings up the waveform for annotation. The screen shots with all of the user's notes can then be saved as a report.

The WaveRunner DSO provides instant functionality and efficiency right out of the box. In addition, the X-Stream architecture running on the Windows XP OS is a solid foundation for an extensive range of upgrades not usually available for an everyday scope. Upgrade packages include XMATH Advanced Math Package, XDEV Advanced Customization Package and CANbus Testing Package.

For engineering departments looking to improve their productivity and get to market faster, the WaveRunner 6000A provides immediate value and offers outstanding return on investment for many years to come, added LeCroy.
