Farnell shipping next generation R&S MXO 4 Series oscilloscopes

1 min read

Farnell has announced that it is now stocking the Rohde & Schwarz (R&S) MXO 4 Series, the first in the next generation of oscilloscopes.

This instrument provides fast real-time update rates of more than 4.5 million acquisitions per second, enabling development engineers to see more signal detail and infrequent events, providing a better understanding of physical layer signals and faster testing.

The integrated 12-bit ADC in the R&S MXO 4 Series has 16 times the resolution of traditional 8-bit oscilloscopes at all sample rates without any trade-offs, providing more precise measurements. A standard acquisition memory of 400 Mpts on all four channels gives the instrument up to 100 times the standard memory of comparable instruments and the series also features a unique 200 Gbps processing ASIC, a notable breakthrough for accelerated signal insights.

The R&S MXO 4 Series features a 13.3” full-HD capacitive touchscreen and an intuitive user interface. The instrument’s small footprint, very low audible noise, VESA mounting and rackmount kit for installation makes it suitable for any engineering workspace.

Other features of the R&S MXO 4 Series include:

  • industry-leading 18-bit architecture
  • fastest and most accurate spectrum analysis in its class
  • industry’s deepest standard memory of 400 Mpoints per channel
  • industry’s fastest trigger rearm time of 21 ns
  • first in class to incorporate newer digital triggering technology
  • industry’s most sensitive trigger of 1/10 000 div
  • best in class trigger jitter of < 1 ps
  • first oscilloscope with dual-path protocol analysis
  • first-in-class to feature the R&S®SmartGrid user interface

Commenting, Dr. Andreas Werner, Vice President Oscilloscopes at Rohde & Schwarz, said,  “New hardware, software technology blocks and architecture enabled our development team to achieve a once-in-a-decade engineering breakthrough with the R&S MXO 4 Series. Our customers will experience a whole new level of performance, and all at a price more affordable than has ever been seen on the market.”
