Analysis Oscilloscopes

Developing next-generation technology requires world-class signal integrity from your test equipment. Analysis oscilloscopes enable you to conquer your most difficult measurement challenges with superior hardware technology that offers the lowest noise floor, highest effective number of bits (ENOB), and highest bandwidth. See your signals under test and achieve design insights you never thought possible. Solve your toughest measurement challenges with the right capabilities.

Signal Integrity with Real-Time Oscilloscopes

See the Truest Representation of Your Signal.

Signal integrity continues to be a hot topic in the electronics world. Specifications as highest number of ADC bits, lowest noise floor or fastest sample rate are some examples on which you may base your decision. While all these specifications are important, it is also critical to understand the entire measurement system. Educating yourself on what each of these specifications really means for your design saves you loads of time and heartache while testing.

Sampling Oscilloscopes

Equivalent-time (sampling) oscilloscopes are also known as digital communication analysers (DCA).

They are designed to visualize and analyse the analogue properties of high-speed signals in wireline telecom and data center links. A DCA platform features a wide variety of optical and

electrical modules, compliance applications, software, and a common FlexDCA interface to ensure more efficient testing in both R&D and manufacturing. It provides industry-leading measurement accuracy for high-speed digital designs such as 400G ethernet and 64G fibre channel. Achieve precise electrical and optical measurements and get insights into root causes of issues with the signal or device under test to boost your productivity.


To get the most out of your oscilloscope, you need the right probes and accessories for your individual applications. Whether you need high bandwidth and low loading of an active probe, an easy way to connect to surface mount ICs or a passive probe to measure high voltages, there is a wide selection of high-quality probes and accessories.
