Rigol DHO1000 Oscilloscope.

Rigol’s DHO1000 series oscilloscopes offer 12-bit resolution

  • Rigol Technologies has integrated its two new Centaurus ASIC chips into the new DHO1000 series oscilloscopes.
  • The DHO1000 series oscilloscopes, with 2 or 4 channels depending on the model, offer bandwidths of 70, 100 and 200 MHz.
  • The signals are sampled at a maximum rate of 2 GS/s with a resolution of 12 bits. Their maximum memory depth is 100 Mpts.

The minimum vertical adjustment is 500 µV/DIV. This allows the measurement of low amplitude signals. The two new ASICs allow a noise level of 50 µVrms.

The 12-bit resolution of the A/D converters makes it possible to measure small signal amplitude variations. A high resolution mode offering up to 16 bits can also be activated.

The new Ultra Acquire analysis function allows a display rate of up to 1,500 million waveforms per second. This means that very fast, sporadic and short events can be measured and displayed in different ways (e.g. cascade, mosaic or superposition) in order to optimally identify undesired signal components. The Ultra Acquire function can also be linked to the recording, analysis and navigation functions to examine the signal components for detailed analysis.

These oscilloscopes feature a 10.1-inch (1024*800) HD color touchscreen with 256 intensity levels and color tones. Via their HDMI and USB interfaces, they can be connected to an external touch monitor from which they can be controlled. Their web control function (including screen capture, video, SCPI panel, etc.) and their connection to the FTP server, allow them to be controlled entirely remotely without the need to install an additional driver.

Various triggering, calculation and display options (extended FFT to 1 million points, mask test and power analysis), and an integrated signal search function are provided, as well as all the usual analysis and triggering functions of the serial bus protocol. An integrated voltmeter and a frequency counter complete the measurement functions.

The oscilloscopes include various communication interfaces such as USB host, USB device, HDMI, LAN (10/100/1000 Base-T) and AUX OUT.

A range of accessories is also available such as active and passive probes, high voltage probes (differential/single), various current clamps (up to 500 amps), a 19″ installation frame and software drivers for the most common software packages.
