Teledyne LeCroy Debuts HDO High Def 'Scope
High definition oscilloscope.
Chestnut Ridge, NY — Teledyne LeCroy is introducing two series of high definition oscilloscopes with HD4096 high definition technology — the HDO4000 and HDO6000. Oscilloscopes with HD4096 acquire waveforms with high resolution, high sample rate, and low noise. Waveform displays are cleaner and crisper with 16 times more vertical resolution than traditional 8-bit instruments. Waveform details which were previously difficult to see can now be easily distinguished and measured. The HDO4000 and HDO6000 are available in bandwidths from 200MHz to 1GHz. All HDO models have a large 12.1-in. (307mm) touch-screen display and intuitive interface to enhance operation; they also provide powerful debug tools, plus a full complement of automatic measurements, and waveform math capabilities. These tools include WaveScan search and find, history mode waveform playback, sequence acquisition mode, and LabNotebook report generation.

Spectrum-analysis and power-measurement software packages extend the oscilloscopes' capabilities while leveraging their 12-bit architecture with its wider dynamic range and improved measurement precision.

HD4096 High Definition Technology is rooted in high-sample-rate 12-bit ADCs; amplifiers with high signal-to-noise ratios; and a low-noise system architecture. This technology enables high definition oscilloscopes to capture and display signals of up to 1GHz with high sample rate and 16 times more resolution than other oscilloscopes. Precise measurements are critical for effective debug and analysis. HD4096 enables oscilloscopes to deliver unmatched measurement precision to improve testing capabilities and provide better results.

In addition to HD4096 technology, the HDO incorporates the company's ERES (Enhanced Resolution) filtering, which enables users to gain up to three additional bits of resolution for 15-bit vertical resolution.

The oscilloscopes provide a sample rate of 2.5GS/s with up to 25Mpts/channel of memory — up to 50Mpts/ch when interleaved — in two- and four-channel models from 200MHz to 1GHz. The oscilloscopes available in four-channel models deliver sample rates of 2.5GS/s; a maximum 250-Mpts/channel memory, and bandwidths of 350MHz, 500MHz, and 1GHz.
