New low-cost oscilloscope from Rohde & Schwarz

Published: 23rd January 2018

Rohde & Schwarz have released the RTC1000, a series of compact, low-cost, high-quality oscilloscopes. This new oscilloscope series features the highest instrument integration in its compact form factor.

The instrument has a comprehensive range of features designed to meet the needs of users in the education sector, engineers with low budgets and hobbyists.

The RTC1000 is highly versatile and can double as an eight-channel logic analyser, a four-channel pattern generator and a protocol analyzer for I2C, SPI, UART/RS-232, CAN and LIN; and as a digital voltmeter, component tester, spectrum analyser and counter. This eight-in-one instrument integration gives you more value with a minimal footprint on bench space.

Joerg Fries, Vice President Market Segments for T&M at Rohde & Schwarz, said: “Our engineers set out to design a cost-sensitive oscilloscope that retains high quality and high instrument integration. The combination of eight other products all in a single compact instrument, especially the unique component tester, has been very well received by early test customers.”

The RTC1000 series is available in models from 50 MHz to 300 MHz. They are the first in the 1000 class to offer bandwidth upgrades via software license all the way to 300 MHz bandwidth, giving you the flexibility to upgrade as and when test needs increase over time.

The two-channel oscilloscopes have maximum sample rates of 2 Gsample/s and a memory depth of 2 Msample. All models come as standard with LAN and USB interfaces.
