New Rohde & Schwarz RTO2000 Compact Lab Oscilloscope

Published: 23rd February 2016

The RTO2000 is a new, powerful, highly versatile and intuitive lab oscilloscope from Rohde & Schwarz

The RTO2000 is the most compact lab oscilloscope for multi-domain applications. When using it to check advanced embedded designs, you can analyse how sophisticated functional units such as power supplies, the processor system and the sensor technology interact.

Via the analogue input channels, you can simultaneously see the signal in the time and frequency domain, and also, the spectrogram. Newly added functions such as peak list, max. hold detectors and the logarithmic display make frequency analysis even more efficient.

The new zone trigger enables the graphical separation of events in the time and frequency domain. You can define up to eight zones of any shape. A trigger signal is activated when a signal either intersects or doesn’t intersect the zone, making it especially easy to detect disturbances in the spectrum during EMI debugging or to separate read/write cycles of storage media in the time domain.

The RTO2000 is the first oscilloscope in its class to offer a memory of up to 2 Gsample. This is useful for the history function, which provides access to previously acquired waveforms at any time. A trigger timestamp allows time correlation. You can view all saved signals and analyse them with tools such as zoom, measurement, math and spectrum analysis functions. Signal processing in the ASIC and intelligent memory management ensure smooth handling of long pulse and protocol sequences.

This new scope also delivers outstanding performance. The high definition (HD) mode increases the vertical resolution to up to 16 bits, making signal details visible. The HD mode activates configurable lowpass filtering of the signal after the A/D converter. You can trigger on all, even the smallest, signal details.

With one million waveforms per second, the RTO2000 sets a new standard in this class of oscilloscopes, enabling you to quickly detect sporadic signal faults. It provides high-speed analysis even when histogram and mask functions are active.

The optimised user interface makes the RTO2000 very easy to operate. With a brilliant 12.1" capacitive touchscreen, gesture support and colour-coded controls, you can easily configure the scope for any measurement task.

The R&S RTO2000 is now available from MCS Test Equipment as a two or four channel model with a bandwidth of 600 MHz, 1 GHz, 2 GHz, 3 GHz or 4 GHz:

Real-Time vs. Sampling Oscilloscopes: What Are the Differences?

All modern oscilloscopes are categorized as digital storage oscilloscopes (DSO) which digitally sample, store, and display a signal to the user - but the technique for accomplishing this can vary from one scope to another. Two distinct categories you’ve probably heard about are real-time scopes and sampling scopes, each of which have advantages for specific applications. Understanding the differences between these two instruments can help determine which one is right for your use case.
