Tokyo, Japan-Yokogawa Electric Corporation releases the new DLM2000 series of mid-range mixed signal oscilloscopes (MSOs).
DLM2000 series mid-range oscilloscopes are compact, lightweight, and inexpensive. As such they present a new direction for mixed signal oscilloscopes, meeting customer needs in the increasingly digitized mechatronics and electronics fields. In the 200 MHz to 500 MHz bandwidth range, this product series delivers the highest performance in its class. An industry first, these MSOs are ideal for personal use and are being presented to the market under our new concept of “One person, one MSO.” Yokogawa aims to develop this new personal MSO market and capture the top share.
In recent years, electronic devices and embedded systems have been built into products as varied as information appliances, automobiles, and industrial machinery. To inspect such products and analyze their performance, there is a growing need for oscilloscopes that can simultaneously measure analog and digital signals. According to our survey, approximately 70 percent of oscilloscope customers need to measure digital signals, and half of these need an oscilloscope with 8 channels or less.
However, the mixed signal oscilloscopes currently on the market are either waveform observation models without search and other analysis functions needed for software debugging or are large, expensive, and difficult-to-use high-range models for measuring ultra-high-speed signals in electronic devices. Customers therefore have no choice but to use a high-range mixed signal oscilloscope even for measuring digital signals having 8 channels or less. Yokogawa’s DLM2000 series mixed signal oscilloscopes are optimized for exactly this group of customers.
1. Compact, lightweight, and inexpensive MSO for personal use
These compact (293 mm height x 226 mm width x 193 mm depth), lightweight (4.5 kilograms), and inexpensive MSOs are made possible by the newly developed ScopeCORE LSI engine, on which key oscilloscope technologies have embedded with a high density. This MSO is perfect for personal use.
2. Flexible MSO input
The fourth channel of these MSOs is a flexible MSO input that can be switched between analog and digital. Up to either 4 analog channels or 3 analog channels plus 8 digital channels (8-bit logic) can be input.
3. High-speed sampling and largest memory in its class
The maximum sampling rate of 2.5 GS/s is six times faster than that of the previous product series, and the maximum memory size of 125 Mpts is four times larger.
4. Intuitive, easy operations
Various menu and panel features enhance the ease of operations. These include improved waveform display on a screen that is two times larger than the previous model, the dedicated knobs according to frequency of use, and the use of eight languages in menus and panels.
