New "DS1000Z Plus" now field upgradable to MSO at any time

Beaverton, OR -- RIGOL Technologies, Inc. announces an expansion in their portfolio of Mixed Signal Oscilloscopes. The new DS1000Z Plus Series allows customers to purchase a traditional 4 channel analog scope then upgrade with 16 channel logic analysis capability at a later time. This future proof capability adds flexibility to this award winning Oscilloscope platform allowing customers to add additional capabilities as they are needed, minimizing upfront investment costs.

The DS1000Z Plus provides a powerful entry level instrument ideally suited to the needs of educators, hobbyists, and entry level embedded designers. With bandwidths of 70MHz - 100MHz, 4 analog channels, 1GSa/sec sampling, 12Mpts memory, and an optional integrated 2 channel source the DS1000Z Plus provides a very capable instrument at an exceptionally low price starting at just $639. As analysis needs grow there are 5 available upgrades that can be purchased and applied to the instrument at any time:

MSO Upgrade - Adds 16 channel logic analysis capability
Advanced Triggering - Adds advanced triggering capabilities for complex debug
Record Mode - Record and replay up to 60,000 frames
Serial Decode and Trigger - Decode and trigger on many popular busses
Extended Memory - Extend memory depth to 24MPoints
The ability to add these features at any point allows customers an affordable entry point scope with the ability to extend capabilities as needed. This puts a powerful advanced testing capability in reach for the budget conscious customer.

The RIGOL Mixed Signal Oscilloscope portfolio spans from 70MHz to 500MHz meeting the needs of most educational labs and embedded designs. Each of these products delivers unprecedented customer value by delivering outstanding performance characteristics, convenient upgradeability, and world class product quality - all at industry leading price points.

The four DS1000Z Plus models are available and shipping today. Please contact RIGOL or one of its authorized distribution partners with questions or for additional information. Existing DS1000Z Models are not upgradeable and there remains no MSO version for our popular 50MHZ DS1054Z. Customers desiring this flexibility of the MSO upgradability will need to purchase a 70MHz unit.
