The Rigol DS8000-R Series four-channel digital oscilloscopes are compact 1U half-rack-width instruments available in 350 MHz/1 GHz/2 GHz versions with a maximum sampling rate of 10 GSa/sec. In addition to their use installed in a test rack cabinet, these instruments can be conveniently used on a workbench. The DS8000-R series has been designed around RIgol’s proprietary Phoenix ASIC chip and UltraVision II technical platform. It integrates six independent instruments into one unit, including a digital oscilloscope, a spectrum analyzer, a 25-MHz arbitrary waveform generator, a digital voltmeter, a high-precision frequency counter and totalizer, and a serial protocol analyzer. All extensions, such as higher bandwidth, serial decoding, and the AWG functions, are available via software upgrade, even after purchase. The DS8000-R series of scopes offers a memory depth of 500 Mpts and a waveform capture rate of up to 600,000 wfms/sec. This enables glitches and infrequent events in waveforms to be quickly identified, greatly improving an engineer’s debugging capabilities.
The DS8000-R series does not have an LCD or monitor but relies on an external display or PC for parameter setting and viewing measurement results. A web browser, a PC, or a USB-connected mouse or keyboard can be used to control these oscilloscopes. The optional two-channel 25-MHz AWG can provide 13 pre-defined waveforms, while the optional Serial Protocol Analysis and Triggering mode can decode RS232/UART, I2C, SPI, CAN, LIN, FlexRay, I2S, and MIL-STD-1553 signals.
Connectivity includes USB, LAN, and HDMI as standard, with USB-GPIB, and SFP+ as options. The unique SFP+ optical transceiver interface provides 10 Gb/sec data transmission. When performing the acquisition of large amounts of data remotely, the DS8000-R series, when equipped with the HSDC option, ensures real-time and reliable transmission requirements needed by industrial automation and other challenging tasks. The DS8000-R features real-time eye diagram and jitter analysis, as well as jitter trend representations for digital analysis applications.
The DS8000-R series supports multi-unit synchronous triggering to extend the number of input channels. This provides an excellent solution for multi-channel data acquisition and system test integration requirements. Several racks of DS8000-R scopes can be cascaded together with a synchronization module to create a multiple channel measuring device with up to 512 synchronized analog input channels.
Designed for extreme operational environments from -40 to +50°C, the DS8000-R Rackmount Oscilloscope Series is made by Rigol Technologies Inc., a leading manufacturer of precision electronic instrumentation for test and measurement. The series is available now from Saelig Company, Inc., the USA technical distributor.
