August 15, 2019 - RIGOL Technologies announced an expansion to its UltraVision II oscilloscope portfolio with the introduction of the MSO8000 Series Digital Oscilloscope. Delivering Bandwidth up to 2 GHz Bandwidth and a Jitter and Real-Time Eye Analysis package the MSO8000 Series extends RIGOL's value proposition into serial data analysis and signal integrity applications.
The MSO8000 delivers 7 instrument in 1 capability as the other UltraVision II Oscilloscopes. Logic Analysis, Protocol Analysis, Spectrum Analysis, and Waveform Generation are all built into the instrument maximizing utility. Analysis capabilities like Zone Triggering, Histogram, enhanced FFT, Precision Measurements and Power Analysis makes the MSO8000 a solution for embedded and IoT challenges. With the Jitter and Real-Time Eye Analysis option engineers can also analyze serial transmissions for failures caused by timing, noise, bandwidth, and interference. Jitter and eye diagram analysis works with existing histogram and precision measurement functions to help characterize signal quality in real-time making the MSO8000 a debug solution for serial data integrity.
The MSO8000 is built around RIGOL's UltraVision II architecture and its Phoenix chip-set. Two custom ASICs provide analog front end and signal processing performance. These chips are surrounded by a hardware design including Xilinx Zync-7000 SoC, Dual Core Arm-9 Processors, Linux +Qt Operating System, High Speed DDR System Memory and QDRII Display memory. This architecture enables a waveform capture rate of 600,000 wfms/sec, color graded intensity display, and time-base accuracy and jitter performance.
