The WaveRunner 6000 series of DSOs represents a new industry standard for performance in a bench oscilloscope. Five models cover the 350-MHz to 2-GHz band.
Each DSO WaveRunner 6000 channel except the 6030 has a 5-Gsample/s real-time analog-to-digital converter that can be interleaved to 10 Gsamples/s on two channels on the 1-GHz model 6100 and the 2-GHz model 6200. Standard features for the DSOs include 1 Mpoint of memory per channel, 5-ppm clock stability, and an 8.4-in. color touchscreen. A product support package includes a three-year warranty.
The series offers a robust set of trigger features and options for a variety of application-specific test packages. Included are an advanced user interface, an Ethernet 10/100BaseT port, Windows 2000 compatibility, and "smart" triggers.
