Keywords:Oscilloscope? time to insight? OneTouch?

The latest oscilloscope from Teledyne LeCroy enables users to solve debug problems faster. With bandwidth ranging from 500MHz to 4GHz, OneTouch Gesture Control and an enhanced next-generation MAUI user interface, WaveRunner 8000 allows easy measurement setup and faster time to insight into signal abnormalities.

The standard collection of math, measurement, debug, and documentation tools provides improved analysis capabilities. Application-specific packages enable streamlined debugging for common design/validation scenarios. Options include digital filtering, spectrum analysis, device and switching power supply analysis, and more. The customisation option enables user-defined parameters and math functions, providing analysis capability.

The WaveRunner 8000 and MAUI with OneTouch extends Teledyne LeCroy's long tradition of user-interface innovation. MAUI with OneTouch optimises convenience and efficiency by enabling all common operations with a single touch of the display. MAUI with OneTouch has revolutionary drag-and-drop actions to copy and set up channels, math functions, and measurement parameters. Common gestures such as drag, drop, pinch, and flick facilitate instinctive interaction with the oscilloscope. The "Add New" button quickly enables a new channel, math, or measurement while traces and parameters turn off with a flick of a finger.

Serial data tools

Teledyne LeCroy offers a broad variety of optional software packages to equip WaveRunner 8000 for all serial data test requirements, ranging from automated standards compliance packages to flexible debugging toolkits. A suite of protocol-specific measurement and eye diagram packages provides enhanced insight into serial data anomalies. These unique packages complement powerful trigger/decode software, providing the ability to extract decoded data and plot over time, perform bus timing measurements, and create eye diagrams for testing against standard or custom masks. The -MS models have 16 digital lines, which can be used for trigger, decode, and measurements for analysing timing irregularities or for general-purpose debug of digital designs. This allows analog channels to be reserved for observing physical layer defects.

With a sample rate of 40GS/s, WaveRunner 8000M models enable detailed edge reconstruction, even for signals with the fastest rise times. Additionally, long memory allows maintenance of the maximum sample rate in longer timebases. The "M" models' deep 128-Mpt memory is ideal for debugging long-term behaviour on high-speed serial data buses.

Available immediately, the WaveRunner 8000 comes in six different models with US list prices ranging from $14,000 to $29,900. Additionally, -MS versions of each model are available with 16 digital channel sampling at 1.25 GS/s for an additional $3,000.
