Teledyne LeCroy’s latest WaveRunner 9000 Series mixed-signal oscilloscopes (MSOs) provide a large, 15.4” display, bandwidths from 500 MHz to 4 GHz, and sample rates up to 40 Gsamples/s. The scopes are said to offer the industry’s deepest toolbox and the most complete collection of serial data debug and validation solutions, making them desirable for embedded system, automotive, and EMC/EMI test applications.
The WaveRunner 9000 offers a huge array of test, debug, and validation tools, making it well suited for comprehensive testing of embedded computing systems. The widest selection of serial data triggering and decode (TD) packages provides powerful, flexible serial triggering with an intuitive color-coded decode overlay. Additionally, unique measure/graph and eye-diagram test (TDME) packages complement the TD packages by enabling extraction of decoded data and subsequent waveform data plots, performing bus timing measurements, and creating eye diagrams for testing against standard or custom masks. This set of tools provides exhaustive causal analysis for not only embedded systems but also automotive applications, covering all aspects of Automotive Ethernet validation and debug, including 1000Base-T1 and 100Base-T1 compliance test.
WaveRunner 9000 oscilloscopes have standard capability to provide improved resolution with bandwidth tradeoffs by means of filtering, and each channel can be filtered independently. The filtered result shows the improvement in the number of effective bits at a given bandwidth.
For EMC/EMI compatibility applications, WaveRunner 9000 accurately characterizes EMC test signals with a 40 GS/s sampling rate and 1% gain accuracy. The WaveRunner 9000’s spectral analysis mode pins down high harmonic peaks across a wide EMC band using an interactive peaks and markers table. In addition, a dedicated EMC pulse parameter measurement package enables the user to tailor measurements to specific EMC/ESD standards.
The WaveRunner 9000 oscilloscopes start at $16,435 and are available now. An extensive range of probes is also available. For more details, peruse the WaveRunner 9000 datasheet.
