- Teledyne LeCroy completes the WaveSurfer 3000 oscilloscope range with models from the WaveSurfer 3000z series.
- The WaveSurfer 3000z range includes five models, with a capacitive touch screen of 10.1″, offering bandwidths of 100 MHz, 200 MHz, 350 MHz, 500 MHz and 1 GHz and sampling rates up to 4 GS/s.
- These new oscilloscopes with 4 analog inputs are also distinguished by their memory capacity of up to 20 Mpoints.
- WaveSurfer 3000z oscilloscopes incorporate power analysis software tools and are compatible with a variety of probes dedicated to power electronics and conversion circuit testing.
The WaveSurfer 3000z combines an new CPU engine, an improved internal-communications bus, and up to
20 Mpoints of acquisition memory, twice that of the WaveSurfer 3000. The 10.1” capacitive touch screen combines with Teledyne LeCroy’s MAUI user interface to give users a better look at waveforms and deeper insight into signal abnormalities.
Now available for the WaveSurfer 3000z, the Power Analysis software package performs detailed analysis of line power, control loops, and system/device power performance. The WaveSurfer 3000z’s display update rate of 130,000 waveforms/s makes it easy to identify anomalies during power analysis.
To augment the Power Analysis software package, the WaveSurfer 3000z offers an active-probe interface that supports Teledyne LeCroy’s power-focused HVFO103 high-voltage, fiber optically-isolated probe, RP4030 power-rail probe, CP03xA current probe, and HVD3000/3000A high-voltage differential probes.
With analysis features such as History mode for waveform playback, extensive triggering capabilities, and WaveScan advanced search and find, the WaveSurfer 3000z delivers detection and isolation of signal anomalies. It also packs a measure and math toolset of 20 math functions for waveform insight and 24 automated parameter measurements.
A dedicated grid eases viewing of math traces, while statistics, histicons, and trends extract revealing details from parameter measurements. The LabNotebook feature saves and/or restores oscilloscope setups and waveforms with the touch of a single button, and provides a handy tool for annotation and documentation of your work sessions.
The WaveSurfer 3000z includes LXI-based web browsing to facilitate remote configuration and operation. The already palette of optional serial trigger/decode packages now adds an Audiobus trigger/decode package, which performs analysis and debug of the digital audio-bus standard in its I2S, LJ, RJ, and TDM variants.
The oscilloscope WaveSurfer 3000z can serve as a 5-in-1 instrument. The function-generator option offers a standard collection of waveforms at up to 25 MHz, while the logic-analyzer option provides 16 digital channels for mixed-signal capabilities. A digital-voltmeter option performs 4-digit voltage measurements and 5-digit frequency counting on any channel, and the protocol-analyzer option with serial trigger/decode features intuitive, color-coded waveform overlays and interactive data tables.
