High-End DSO Family Expands

Enriching the WaveRunner family of digital oscilloscopes, the WaveRunner Xi-A Oscilloscopes leverage the performance and industrial design developed for the WavePro 7 Zi and WaveMaster 8 Zi oscilloscopes. The Xi-A series incorporates a unique X-Stream II hardware architecture to increase acquisition and display speeds, TriggerScan rare-event capture technology to improve debug and analysis, a spectrum-analyzer option to effectively debug in the frequency domain, and new connectivity and control options with LXI for automated test systems. The industrial design features a large display and a space-efficient footprint, available on all models ranging from 400 MHz to 2 GHz. The scopes’ PC system hosts an Intel Core 2 Duo processor, faster RAM, and a faster hard drive. Software improvements also rely on key elements of the X-Stream II architecture, providing preview and abort capabilities that provide instant control of the oscilloscope without any hold-off or delay. The spectrum-analyzer option provides common controls of a spectrum analyzer, allowing users to navigate a signal by specifying center frequency, span, and resolution bandwidth. It also includes a feature to annotate peaks, which is not available in spectrum analyzers. The WaveRunner Xi-A series has a starting price of $11,810.
