From embedded developers to service technicians to educators – the wide range of functions address a broad group of users. State-of-the-art, high-performance technology in an extremely silent design meets the high requirements of today’s customers. These oscilloscopes include a wide range of upgrade options, providing true investment protection for the future.
The R&S®RTC1000 is an X-in-one instrument that offers the functionality of an oscilloscope, logic analyzer, proto- col analyzer, frequency analyzer, pattern generator, function generator, digital voltmeter and component tester in a single instrument.
With a sampling rate of up to 2 Gsample/s and a memory depth of up to 2 Msample, the R&S®RTC1000 oscilloscope excels in its class. A waveform up- date rate of more than 10 000 waveforms/s ensures a responsive instrument that reliably catches signal faults. Included tools provide quick results, e.g. QuickView, mask tests, FFT, math, cursors and automatic measurements (including statistics).
The R&S®RTC-B1 option turns every R&S®RTC1000 into an intuitive-to-use MSO with 8 additional digital channels. The oscilloscope captures and analyzes sig- nals from analog and digital components in an embedded design – synchro- nously and time-correlated to each other. For example, the delay between the input and output of an A/D converter can be conveniently determined using the cursor measurements.
Protocols such as I2C, SPI and CAN/LIN frequently transfer control messages between integrated circuits. The R&S®RTC1000 has versatile options for proto- col-specific triggering and decoding of serial interfaces. Selective acquisition and analysis of relevant events and data is possible. With the hardware-based implementation, smooth operation and a high update rate are ensured even for long acquisitions. This is advantageous, for example, for capturing multiple packetized serial bus signals.
Waveform and pattern generator
The integrated R&S®RTC-B6 waveform and pattern generator up to 50 Mbit/s is useful for educational purposes and for implementing prototype hardware. In addition to common sine, square/pulse, ramp and noise waveforms, it outputs 4-bit patterns. Waveforms and patterns can be imported as CSV files or copied from oscilloscope waveforms. You can preview signals before playing them back to quickly check signal correctness. Predefined patterns for e.g. I2C, SPI, UART and CAN/LIN are provided.
For simultaneous measurements, the R&S®RTC1000 features a 3-digit digital voltmeter (DVM) and six-digit frequency counter on each channel. Provided measurement functions include DC, AC + DC (RMS) and AC (RMS).
You will also benefit from the included component tester. A 50 Hz and a 200 Hz measuring frequency are provided to support your potentially tedious search for faulty components. And since a picture says more than a thousand words
– or rather a thousand values – you will be able to tell at a glance if your error analysis is on track.
Frequency analysis mode
Difficult-to-find faults often result from the interaction between time and frequency signals. The FFT function of the R&S®RTC1000 is activated at the push of a button and by simply entering the center frequency and span. Thanks to the R&S®RTC1000 oscilloscopes’ high-performance FFT functionality, signals can be analyzed with up to 128k points. Other practical tools include cursor measurements and autoset in the frequency domain.
Mask test mode
Mask tests quickly reveal whether a specific signal lies within defined tolerance limits. Masks assess the quality and stability of a DUT based on statistical pass/ fail evaluation. Signal anomalies and unexpected results are quickly identified. When the mask is violated, the measurement stops. Each violation generates a pulse output at the AUX-OUT connector of the R&S®RTC1000. This pulse out- put can be used to trigger actions in the measurement setup.
