Digital Oscilloscope Supports Mid-Range Users


RIGOL Technologies expands its oscilloscope portfolio with the 7000 Series digital oscilloscope, which it claims to deliver unmatched price/performance capability in a mid-range oscilloscope. With a 10-Gsample/s sample rate and up to 500M record length, the 7000 Series can deliver 20x oversampling on a 500-MHz signal while still capturing a full 50 ms.


The core of the 7000 Series Oscilloscope is RIGOL’s new UltraVision II architecture and its Phoenix chip-set. Two custom ASICs provide analog front end and signal processing performance. These chips are surrounded by a high performance hardware design including Xilinx Zync-7000 SoC, Dual Core Arm-9 Processors, Linux +Qt Operating System, High Speed DDR System Memory and QDRII Display memory. This architecture enables a high waveform capture rate of 600,000wfms/sec, color graded intensity display, and outstanding time-base accuracy and jitter performance.


The 7000 Series comes with a next generation user interface offering five unique ways to interact with the instrument. A vivid 10.1" (1024x600) display supports a responsive and intuitive touch navigation. Users requiring a larger display can take advantage of the native HDMI support to drive large displays and control the instrument with a mouse. The DS7000 also supports a touch enabled browser capability so you can control the instrument on your network via a tablet or smartphone. Traditional knobs, buttons, and soft keys are still available for those who choose to work with a traditional UI. Lastly, the UltraScope remote control and display software will let users interface with the unit directly from their PC.


The 7000 Series is available and shipping now. There are 8 Models (100MHz, 200MHz, 350MHz, and 500Mhz) with or without the Logic Analyzer (MSO). Pricing Starts at $2699. Learn more about the 7000 Series Digital Oscilloscope and peruse the datasheet.
