Rohde & Schwarz launched the R&S RTO high-performance oscilloscope, which makes it easy for users to obtain accurate results quickly. A new function has now been added to significantly broaden the application range: a hardware option turns the R&S RTO into a mixed signal oscilloscope (MSO).
In addition to the usual two or four analog channels, the oscilloscope now features 16 digital logic channels with 400MHz input frequency. Equipped with the MSO option, the R&S RTO allows time correlation between the instrument’s analog and digital sections.
The R&S RTO with MSO functionality offers a very high sampling rate (5 Gsample/s) over the entire 200 Msample memory depth. A maximum time resolution of 200ps makes it possible to accurately analyze signal content and quality. Critical events such as narrow, widely separated signal faults can be reliably detected using the digital channels. The option comes with hardware-based acquisition, trigger and processing units.
