R&S® RTE : Simply More Scope

More reliable measurements, more tools and fast results, more fun to use – that's the new R&S®RTE oscilloscope. They offer fast and reliable solutions for everyday T&M tasks such as embedded design development, power electronics analysis and general debugging. Users benefit from features such as high sampling and acquisition rates and good signal fidelity. A comprehensive set of measurement and analysis tools deliver fast results and the high-resolution touchscreen makes the R&S RTE very easy to use.

The R&S RTE are available with bandwidths from 200 MHz to 1 GHz. With a sampling rate of 5GSa/s and a memory depth of 10 Msample per channel, the RTE can accurately record long signal sequences required when analysing the data content of serial protocols such as I2C ad CAN. An acquisition rate of more than one million waveforms per second helps users find signal faults quickly. A highly accurate digital trigger system with virtually no trigger jitter and the excellent dynamic range of the single-core A/D converter with more than seven effective bits (ENOB) almost completely eliminates signal distortion.

Users performing complex tasks will especially appreciate the high measurement speed of the R&S RTE. Mask tests, for example, quickly return statistically conclusive results. The highly responsive, spectrum-analyzer-like FFT reliably detects even sporadic signals, making the RTE ideal for EMI debugging during product development.

Thanks to the high-resolution 10.4" XGA touchscreen, users can intuitively perform their daily T&M tasks. For instance, arranging different waveforms on the screen can be done by a simple "drag & drop". Transparent dialog boxes ensure that the measurement diagrams always maintain their original size. Signal flow diagrams in the dialog boxes simplify navigation. Signal Icons with realtime preview on the edge of the screen clearly show what is currently happening.

Innovative tools help users boost their productivity. The QuickMeas function simultaneously performs several measurements on a signal. Fingertip zoom allows users to simply swipe a signal's zoom area to quickly view signal details. Tools are selected from a configurable toolbar.

Rohde & Schwarz also offers a wide range of dedicated application solutions for the R&S RTE, including trigger and decoder options for serial protocols, a mixed-signal option with 16 digital channels and a power analysis option. A broad probe portfolio rounds out the offering.
