Teledyne LeCroy Announces 65 GHz 12-bit Oscilloscope Platform

09.11. 2023 | News

Teledyne LeCroy announced the launch of its new WaveMaster® 8000HD high-bandwidth, high definition oscilloscope (HDO®) platform with models from 20 to 65 GHz of bandwidth, 12 bits of resolution, up to 320 GS/s of sample rate and an industry-leading 8 gigapoints (Gpts) of acquisition memory. The new WaveMaster 8000HD retains the unrivaled validation and debug capabilities of its predecessor while adding new SDA Expert serial data analysis software options for testing next-generation serial data technologies.

Serial data technologies are increasing in speed — PCI Express® (PCIe®) 6.0 delivers a 64 gigatransfers per second (GT/s) data rate while USB4® Specification v2.0 delivers 80 gigabits per second (Gbps). Both new standards use multi-level pulse-amplitude-modulation (PAM) signals. The increase in speed and the use of multi-level signaling requires both increased oscilloscope bandwidth and resolution. Serial data link complexity is also increasing through the use of dynamic link equalization, negotiation, training and handshaking operations to establish and maintain the highest transfer rates. Some of these operations are performed over parallel low-speed serial data links using a combination of physical layer signals and protocol communications (more info).
