Teledyne LeCroy presents the WavePro HD high-definition oscilloscopes, which combine for the first time HD4096 12-bit technology and 8 GHz bandwidth for low noise and pristine signal fidelity. With a maximum of 5 Gpoints of fast, responsive, and easily navigable acquisition memory, also an industry first, WavePro HD oscilloscopes also acquire extremely fine waveform details over long periods of time. A deep, powerful toolset quickly exposes underlying system behaviors.
WavePro HD 12-bit oscilloscopes uniquely support engineers in developing smaller, faster, and lower-power mobile and handheld devices; high-speed, deeply-embedded computing systems; and datacenter technologies. All of these are characterized by analog sensor inputs, sensitive power-distribution networks (PDNs) with very low-voltage power rails, and high-speed CPUs and serial-data interfaces. This requires an oscilloscope with a unique combination of high resolution, low noise, high bandwidth, and very long capture times at high sample rates to facilitate comprehensive system debugging.
All WavePro HD oscilloscopes feature a large 15.6”, 1900 x 1080-pixel capacitive touch screen and Teledyne LeCroy’s powerful MAUI with OneTouch user interface for intuitive, efficient operation. The instruments come in four models with bandwidths from 2.5 GHz to 8 GHz, all featuring sample rates up to 20 GS/s.20 GS/s.
HD4096 Technology Meets 8-GHz Bandwidth
At the heart of WavePro HD is a new 8-GHz chipset comprising a low-noise front-end amplifier and a 12-bit ADC.. That chipset, tightly integrated with a new low-noise, high-bandwidth system architecture, unlocks the full potential of HD4096 High Definition Technology in an industry-first 8-GHz, 12-bit oscilloscope. Competitive instruments either simply place a 10- or 12-bit ADC into a conventional 8-bit signal path, or use software techniques to sacrifice bandwidth for higher resolution. WavePro HD’s HD4096 technology provides the highest resolution and lowest noise at full bandwidth without compromise.
Next-Generation Long-Memory Architecture
With WavePro HD’s next-generation signal-acquisition and memory-management architecture, 5-Gpoint acquisitions are fast and responsive. Meanwhile, WavePro HD's MAUI advanced user interface makes it easy to find, navigate to, and thoroughly analyze waveform features of interest. The instruments can acquire 250 ms at the full 20-GS/s sample rate, and always with 12-bit resolution.
Best-in-Class Deeply Embedded Computing Systems Debug
In WavePro HD, high-resolution analog inputs may be combined with optional mixed-signal oscilloscope (MSO) inputs for capture of a wide range of analog-sensor, digital logic, power-rail, serial-data, and other signals. A full complement of standard analysis tools is augmented by serial-data Trigger, Decode, Measure/Graph, and Eye-Diagram (TDME) options. Thus, WavePro HD performs the industry’s best long-capture causal analysis between any high- and low-speed signals, including power-distribution network (PDN) signals, analog sensor inputs, digital activities, and serial data messages. When combined with Teledyne LeCroy’s powerful, deep toolbox and toolsets for high-speed serial-data jitter analysis and protocol compliance, users have at their fingertips a dream debug and analysis solution for deeply embedded computing systems.
