Teledyne LeCroy 10-bit HDO9000 oscilloscope automatically optimizes vertical resolution


Teledyne LeCroy has expanded its High Definition Oscilloscope product line with the HDO9000 High Definition Oscilloscopes with HD1024 high-definition technology.

HD1024 technology automatically optimizes vertical resolution under each measurement condition to deliver 10 bits of vertical resolution. The addition of HD1024 technology to an exceptionally deep analysis toolbox enables the HDO9000 to easily uncover difficult to find signal abnormalities, officials say.

HDO9000 High Definition Oscilloscopes offer 10-bit resolution, bandwidths of 1 GHz to 4 GHz, and sample rates of 40 GS/s, enabling efficient and accurate debug in high definition. Teledyne LeCroy has been providing industry-leading High Definition Oscilloscopes since 2011 and the HDO9000 adds significant capabilities to the HDO line of products.

A critical element of the HDO9000 is HD1024 technology, which provides 10 bits of vertical resolution with 4 GHz bandwidth. Waveforms are displayed clearly and crisply, unmasking fine signal details that cannot be seen on conventional 8-bit oscilloscopes. HD1024 technology enables HDO9000 High Definition Oscilloscopes to automatically and dynamically determine the best ADC configuration under each specific measurement condition. Thus, the oscilloscope always provides optimal resolution. By utilizing optimized filtering, the HDO9000 can extend vertical resolution beyond 10 bits to as much as 13.8 bits. As with all members of Teledyne LeCroy’s HDO family, the HDO9000 sports an exceptionally low-noise system architecture that delivers outstanding effective number of bits (ENOB). teledynelecroy-hdo_family_angled_0078-jpg-scale-large

The HDO9000 and MAUI with OneTouch allows users to perform all common operations with a single touch of the display, optimizing for convenience and efficiency. Users’ instinctive interaction with the oscilloscope dramatically reduces measurement setup time. Meanwhile, the 15.4-inch, high-resolution capacitive touch screen’s bright display and quick responsiveness further enhances the efficiency and intuitiveness of MAUI with OneTouch.

In addition to the versatile standard toolset, Teledyne LeCroy offers a broad variety of optional software packages to equip HDO9000 for all validation and debug requirements ranging from automated standards compliance packages to flexible debugging toolkits. A suite of protocol-specific measurement and eye diagram packages complements the industry’s most intuitive trigger and decode software. The serial data packages augment HDO9000’s already deep and powerful toolbox of math, measurement, debug, and documentation tools, bringing unsurpassed analysis capabilities to the bench or lab.

Application-specific packages enable streamlined debug for common design and validation scenarios. Options include digital filtering, spectrum analysis, device and switching power supply analysis, and more. Advanced customization options allow users to define their own parameters and math functions for unique and limitless analysis capabilities.

The mixed signal (-MS) models have 16 digital lines which can be used for trigger, decode, and measurements for analyzing timing irregularities or for general-purpose debug of digital designs. Additionally, the HDO9000 is compatible with the HDA125 High-speed Digital Analyzer, with 12.5 GS/s digital sampling rate on 18 input channels, and the revolutionary QuickLink probing solution for high-performance digital acquisitions. These mixed signal options allow analog channels to be reserved for observing physical layer defects.

Available immediately, the HDO9000 is available in 1, 2, 3, or 4 GHz bandwidths with U.S. list prices ranging from $21,250 to $37,400. Additionally, -MS versions of each model are available with 16 digital channel sampling at 1.25 GS/s for an additional $3,000.

Teledyne LeCroy is a manufacturer of advanced oscilloscopes, protocol analyzers, and other test instruments that verify performance, validate compliance, and debug complex electronic systems quickly and thoroughly. Since its founding in 1964, the Company has focused on incorporating powerful tools into innovative products that enhance “Time-to-Insight”. Faster time to insight enables users to rapidly find and fix defects in complex electronic systems, dramatically improving time-to-market for a wide variety of applications and end markets. Teledyne LeCroy is based in Chestnut Ridge, N.Y.
