Teledyne LeCroy’s € 9,990/£ 8,640 WaveSurfer 10 oscilloscope hosts the company’s MAUI user interface, 10 Mpts memory, 10 Gsample/sec sample rate and advanced debug tool kit.

The scope combines the MAUI advanced user interface with waveform processing, in addition to advanced math, measurement and debug tools, to analyse and find the root cause of problems. Built on the WaveSurfer platform of large screen, small footprint oscilloscopes, the WaveSurfer 10 has a 10.4 in. touch screen display and compact form factor.

The instrument has a wide variety of serial data protocol decoders, as well as a full complement of advanced active probes. LabNotebook documentation and report generation tool provides a fast way to save waveforms, save setups and screen images, report results, and view offline.

For debug and analysis, the sample rate of 10 Gsamples/sec on all four channels, 32 Mpts of memory, sequence mode segmented memory, history mode waveform playback, 13 additional math functions, and 2 simultaneous math traces – all included in the debug package, enable the WaveSurfer 10 to perform advanced analysis on long captures with 10x oversampling to find the root cause of problems.
