ROHDE & SCHWARZ MXO 5 next-generation oscilloscope is available with four or eight channels. Building on next-generation MXO-EP processing ASIC technology and introduced with predecessor R&S MXO 4, new unit shows more of a signal’s activity in both the time and the frequency domains than any competing products. MXO 5 delivers 4.5 million acquisitions per second and 18 million waveforms per second across multiple channels. Users can capture intricate signal details and infrequent events with exceptional precision. Product has digital triggering on all eight channels in the accurate isolation of small signal anomalies. The capability of 45 000 FFTs per second provides engineers with improved spectrum signal viewing, particularly for EMI and harmonic testing. By capturing up to 99% of real-time signal activity, unit speeds up signal analysis while detecting rare and random events often missed. The features let engineers debug designs more efficiently across multiple applications – from power conversion to automotive analysis – making power and signal integrity measurements as well as simplifying logic and bus protocol debugging.
