Improved FFT on Rigol MSO/DS1000Z Series Oscilloscopes

Latest firmware enables FFT with more frequency resolution With the latest firmware (00.04.03 SP2) for the Rigol MSO/DS1000Z Series Oscilloscopes the  FFT functionality has been improved. The FFT (Fast Fourier Transform) now can be calculated not only from the screen points but also on 16k points from the acquisition memory. This new enhancement enables the customer to perform FFT analyis in the frequency domain with increased frequency resolution.   Rigol MSO/DS1000Z (Mixed Signal) Oscilloscopes The new Rigol MSO/SD1000Z series digital oscilloscope have been designed for general purpose. It features 4 analog channels with either 50, 70 or 100 MHz bandwidth,

New Tekprobe and universal current adapters for Teledyne LeCroy oscilloscopes

With the introduction of the TPA10 and CA10, the measurement flexibility of a Teledyne LeCroy oscilloscope is greatly improved. The TPA10 accepts TekProbe interface level II probes to work with any LeCroy oscilloscope with a Probus interface (nearly all models, starting from the WaveSurfer 3000 series). This includes current probes, current amplifiers, differential probes and single ended active probes up to 4 GHz. It provides the necessary power, and communication to and from the probe. The TPA10 is integrated with the oscilloscope firmware and will be updated automatically with a one button click! The CA10 is a customizable current adaptor

New high sensitivity current probes from Teledyne LeCroy

Teledyne LeCroy has introduced two new 30 A current probes: the CP030A and the CP031A. These probes have a bandwidth of 50 and 100 MHz and differentiate from the already existing CP030 and CP031  in terms of sensitivity and noise. The new A versions have a maximum sensitivity of 1 mA per devision and the noise has dropped with a factor of more than 10. The new probes are useful for applications where noise is critical and high sensitivity is required. Think about power conversion and analog technology. The CP030A and CP031A is a very good match with the HDO
