1-GHz oscilloscopes deliver 5 GS/s sampling rate

Chestnut Ridge, N.Y. — LeCroy Corp. has introduced two M-Type 1-GHz oscilloscopes that bring LeCroy's large display/small footprint and 5 GS/s sampling rate to 1-GHz oscilloscopes. Available in the WaveRunner and WaveSurfer product series, the M-Type oscilloscopes are offered in two models.

The LeCroy WaveRunner MXi offers a maximum sample rate of 10 Gigasamples/second and a standard 12.5 Mpts/Ch of memory (interleaving to 25 Mpts/Ch). The oscilloscope can accommodate a variety of analysis tools and application programs such as Tracks, Histograms, long memory FFTs, user-defined functions, mixed signal options, power device analysis, jitter and timing analysis, and a host of other applications. The X-Stream architecture ensures that memory processing is performed without interfering with the oscilloscope's operation.

The WaveSurfer MXs offers 5 Gigasamples per second on each channel with 10 Mpts/Ch memory. It emphasizes strong fundamentals for lab and bench oscilloscope use. Advanced triggering helps an engineer find rare events and glitches, while the built-in HDTV trigger speeds the design of new products. The oscilloscope comes complete with an advanced math package, including one million point FFTs.

Each oscilloscope comes standard with a full set of analysis tools, including WaveScan, an advanced search and analysis feature; WaveStream, a fast viewing mode, and LabNotebook, a unique tool for documentation and report generation.

All M-Type oscilloscopes are compatible with optional low-speed serial triggering and decode packages to help engineers quickly analyze I2C, SPI, UART, RS-232, CAN, LIN and FlexRay protocols through the use of easy to read transparent overlays, search/zoom capabilities, and tabular displays. M-Type oscilloscopes are also hot-plug ready for LeCroy's 36-channel Mixed Signal Oscilloscope (MSO).

Pricing: The U.S. list price for the WaveSurfer MXs oscilloscope is $11,990. The WaveRunner MXi is priced at $14,390.
Availability: Delivery is four to six weeks ARO.
