LeCroy markets 500 MHz touch-screen portable ’scope at under €5k

September 16, 2014 // By Graham Prophet
Built on its WaveJet 300 oscilloscope platform, Teledyne LeCroy’s WaveJet Touch is available in two models with 350 MHz or 500 MHz bandwidth, four channels, up to 5 Mpts of memory at 2 Gsample/sec, and a 7.5-in. touch screen display.

Teledyne LeCroy is positioning the 'scope as a combination of touch screen plus powerful debug tools and advanced triggering that, “is unique among oscilloscopes with comparable specifications and pricing.”

The WaveJet Touch offers the same debug tools, connectivity, portability, and ease of use as its predecessor, the WaveJet 300A while adding a wide variety of new features and toolset enhancements to shorten debug time. Intricate signals can be acquired by combining a long capture time with a variety of complex triggers, including triggers for I²C, SPI, and UART. Digital low-pass, high-pass, and simple moving average filtering permit isolation of signals of interest. The choice of normal, peak detect, average, and high resolution acquisition modes provides flexibility when acquiring waveforms. Pass/fail mask and measurement testing enables deeper analysis and performs characterisation and validation testing. Scroll back in time to view previous waveforms and isolate anomalies using Replay mode. Standard GPIB, LAN, and USB device ports provide flexibility for remote control. All of this, the company says, comes in a small form factor and lightweight design, to carry and use anywhere.

The all-inclusive WaveJet Touch oscilloscopes are priced at €4,190 / £3,625 for the 350 MHz WaveJet 334T and €4,990 / £4,315 for the 5400 MHz WaveJet 354T
