Next gen oscilloscopes accelerate signal detail

ROHDE & SCHWARZ R&S MXO 4 series next-generation oscilloscopes come in four-channel models with bandwidths of 200 MHz, 350 MHz, 500MHz, 1GHz, and 1.5GHz and provide the ‘world’s fastest’ real-time update rate of over 4.5-million acquisitions per second. Product’s 200Gbps processing ASIC makes this feature possible. Development engineers can now see more signal detail and infrequent events than with any other oscilloscope. The 12-bit ADC in the unit provides 16 times the resolution of traditional 8-bit oscilloscopes at all sample rates without any trade-offs for more precise measurements. A standard acquisition memory of 400Mpts on all four channels gives the instrument up to 100 times the standard memory of comparable instruments.
Product series incorporates a 12-bit ADC that operates across all the instrument sample rates with an 18-bit vertical resolution architecture for greater resolution precision than any other oscilloscope. Unit also has the lowest noise and largest offset range (+/- 5V with a 500uV/div scaling) in its class. Users can see dc and other signals with more precision than with any other oscilloscope on the market. Product has up to 100 times the standard memory of its primary competition. The additional memory also provides extra measurement capability when needed.
