Teledyne LeCroy introduces 500 MHz, $5,000 WaveJet Touch portable oscilloscope



WaveJet Touch

The availability of a touch screen as well as powerful debug tools and advanced triggering is unique among oscilloscopes with comparable specifications and pricing. Built on the popular WaveJet 300 oscilloscope platform, the WaveJet Touch is available in two models with 350 MHz or 500 MHz bandwidth, four channels, and up to 5 Mpts of memory at 2 GS/s.

Touch screen operation simplifies how all aspects of the oscilloscope are controlled, increasing productivity and decreasing setup time. Intuitively touch controls instead of navigating confusing soft keys.

Shorten Debug Time
Intricate signals can be quickly acquired by combining a long capture time with a variety of complex triggers, including triggers for I2C, SPI, and UART. Pass/fail mask and measurement testing enables deeper analysis and performs characterization and validation testing with ease. Scroll back in time to view previous waveforms and isolate anomalies using Replay mode.

Portable Performance
The small form factor and light-weight design make it easy to carry and use anywhere. Coupled with an ultra-quick boot time, the WaveJet Touch is ready to use when needed. The WaveJet Touch is on and acquiring signals in less than 5 seconds, enabling measurements to begin immediately.

Flexible Connectivity
Easily document results by saving screenshots directly to a memory stick or printer. Standard GPIB, LAN, and USB connections enable easy remote control. Using Teledyne LeCroy’s WaveStudio the WaveJet Touch can quickly connect to a PC.

Long Capture Time
Long memory is critical for maintaining high sample rate during long data captures. The standard 5 Mpts of memory eliminates the tradeoff between long capture and high sample rate. The long memory makes the WaveJet Touch a great tool for viewing signals that have low frequency and high frequency components. The built-in zoom function provides an easy way to get a close look at all of the signal details.

Advanced Triggering
Equipped with a variety of complex triggers, the WaveJet Touch can easily capture intricate signals. Standard I2C, SPI, and UART triggers allow for comprehensive protocol debug. A pattern logic trigger can trigger the oscilloscope depending upon the state of the four channel inputs.

Pass/Fail Testing
Waveforms can be tested against a mask or measurement parameters can be assigned pass/fail criteria for validation testing. On a pass/fail condition the oscilloscope can be configured to: stop the acquisition, beep, save the waveform, take a screen capture or output a pulse to another instrument.

Waveform Math and Analysis
Math operators include basic arithmetic functions and advanced FFT, derivative, and integral functions. Advanced math can be performed on the results of basic math functions. The scaling and offset of the math trace can easily be adjusted with its own dedicated knobs.

Digital Filtering
Digital filtering is available on each channel. The Low-Pass, High-Pass, and Simple Moving Average filters allow the oscilloscope to isolate only the desired frequencies. By implementing the filter directly on each channel the math trace is still available for additional analysis.

Replay Mode Waveform Playback
Scroll back in time using Replay mode to view previous waveforms and isolate anomalies. Use cursors and measurement parameters to quickly find the source of problems. Replay mode is always active so there is no need to worry about turning it on.

Multiple Acquisition Modes
In addition to normal sampling, the high resolution, peak detect, and average acquisition modes make it easy to capture a wide range of signal types. An Equivalent time sampling rate of 100 GS/s allows for reconstruction of repetitive signal with extreme precision.

Automatic Measurements
Measure waveforms with up to 26 different automatic parameters and min/max statistics. Display up to four measurements simultaneously. All instance measurements allow the oscilloscope to measure all occurrences of a parameter in a single acquisition.

Maximum Value, Minimum Investment
Priced significantly less than comparable 500 MHz oscilloscope, the all-inclusive WaveJet Touch oscilloscopes deliver incomparable value. Available immediately, the 350 MHz WaveJet 334T is $4,200 and the 500 MHz WaveJet 354T is $5,000.
