Teledyne LeCroy’s WaveSurfer 3000 series of oscilloscopes features the company’s MAUI user interface, previously seen on its highest-performance instruments. This range offers up to 500 MHz bandwidth with advanced measurement toolset, multi-instrument capabilities and a 10.1-in. touch-screen display

The advanced user interface integrates a deep measurement toolset and multi-instrument capabilities with a 10.1-in. touch screen, that LeCroy says is the largest display and only touch screen in this class of oscilloscope. WaveSurfer 3000 oscilloscopes are available in bandwidths from 200 MHz to 500 MHz, with 10 Mpts/ch memory and up to 4 Gsamples/sec sample rate. Beyond traditional oscilloscope functions, the WaveSurfer 3000 has a variety of multi-instrument capabilities including waveform generation with a built in function generator, protocol analysis with serial data trigger and decode, and logic analysis with a 16-channel mixed signal option.

Combining a fast waveform update rate of 130,000 waveforms/second with History mode waveform playback and WaveScan search and find, the WaveSurfer 3000 suits waveform anomaly detection. The active probe interface gives flexibility for measuring high voltages, high frequencies, currents, or differential signals. The toolset with powerful maths and measurement capabilities, sequence mode segmented memory, and LabNotebook ensure that problems can be debugged, analysed and documented for a faster solution.
