15 August 2022 - Pico Technology released a Power Management Bus (PMBus) decoder to their database of free serial decoders. The PMBus decoder tool is available in PicoScope 7 (Early Access) to decode, display and analyze smart batteries and power supplies. PMBus is a serial communications protocol aimed at the configuration, control, and monitoring of power supply devices. It’s built on top of the proven foundation of the SMBus, which is a low-cost, two-wire bus derived from I2C.

Caltest CT444704 August 2022 - Cal Test Electronics introduced the CT4447 Series of 30 MHz High-Voltage Differential Probes. Two different attenuation settings are offered, covering the most requested voltage ranges. Compatible with oscilloscopes (with 1 MΩ input) from all major manufacturers, the probes can be powered by batteries (included), a universal mains adapter (included), or by the oscilloscope, if USB equipped.

Micsig STO200013 July 2022 - Saelig Company, Inc. announced the Micsig STO2000C Series 2-channel Portable Oscilloscopes, which offer a bandwidth choice of 200 or 300MHz, 280Mpts of memory, 2GSa/s sampling rate (single channel), up to 270,000wfm/s refresh rate, and a 7.5Ah Li battery for extended field use. This portable instrument combines a capacitive 8” TFT LCD touch screen (touch, drag, and swipe) with traditional ‘button & knob’ operation to make scope operation easy and efficient. An external USB mouse can also be connected for additional control choices.

TLC PCIeInterposer27 June 2022 – Teledyne LeCroy announced availability of a PCI Express 5.0 Open Compute Project (OCP) Network Interface Card (NIC) 3.0 interposer that works in combination with Teledyne LeCroy’s Summit family of PCI Express 5.0 protocol analyzers. The new OCP interposer allows engineers to test product designs that incorporate OCP NIC 3.0 with PCIe 5.0, NVM Express (NVMe) or Compute Express Link (CXL) technologies. The PCIe 5.0 OCP interposer joins the list of CrossSync PHY enabled interposers, allowing users to debug enhanced power management and link training equalization through correlated and time aligned physical and protocol layer views.

Micsig STO100423 June 2022 - Saelig Company introduced the Micsig STO1004 four-channel battery-powered portable oscilloscope, which offers 100MHz bandwidth, 70Mpts memory, 1GSa/s sampling (single channel), 130,000wfm/s refresh rate, and a 7.5Ah Li battery for extended field use. Improvements over previous Micsig models include an intelligent bidirectional Universal Probe Interface for accommodating and powering smart probes such as those with differential inputs and new joystick control buttons. A smartphone app is also available for remote instrument control.

CS CS54817 June 2022 - Cleverscope introduced the CS548, a 2kV DC isolated channel oscilloscope designed to be useful anywhere isolation and high CMRR are needed - in particular power electronics, including on the high side. Using the CS1200 IsoPod allows a >30kV isolation. The new CS548 features 100 dB CMRR at 50 MHz, Frequency Response Analysis, Component LCR measurement, MSPS streaming to disk for days, high resolution spectra, sophisticated maths, Matlab and Excel live, external sampling clock, Ethernet or USB, Isolated Signal Generator, and mixed signal capture.

Caltech CT4432 IsoView15 June 2022 - Cal Test Electronics introduced the CT4432 High-Voltage Oscilloscope Probe. The CT4432 has a 10 kV maximum voltage input rating and is cTUVus listed. The CT4432 High-Voltage Oscilloscope Probe enables the user to safely measure voltage levels up to 10 kV. With the Cal Test Electronics name and certification by cTUVus, the user can be confident this test accessory is both reliable and safe. The CT4432 is covered by a two-year warranty.

Siglent SDS2000X13 June 2022 - SIGLENT Technologies has introduced a new 12-bit oscilloscope series. Compared to 8-bit ADCs, 12-bit systems have 16x higher vertical resolution which provides significantly lower quantization error. This improvement in resolution is valuable when analyzing the smallest signal details, and is especially useful when the zoom function is used. The analog-to-digital converters have a maximum sampling rate of 2 GS/s and all models in the series come with 4 analog input channels. All oscilloscopes are equipped with two AD converters and 2 x 200 Mpt acquisition memory. With four activated channels, this results in a minimum sampling rate of 1GS/s and a memory depth of 100 MPkt at each channel.

RS RTP210 June 2022 - Rohde & Schwarz introduced the new generation of R&S RTP high-performance oscilloscopes, which combine high-class signal integrity measurements with the fastest possible acquisition for real-time analysis. The new models come with a bigger and brighter 13.3” full HD touchscreen and a fully redesigned front panel. Users can take advantage of the crisp 16:9 screen format, which displays waveforms while allowing settings to be altered and changed quickly. The intuitive front panel increases productivity with fast, direct access to primary instrument settings.

Tek Series208 June 2022 - Tektronix unveiled the 2 Series Mixed Signal Oscilloscope (MSO). The new 2 Series MSO can go seamlessly from the bench to the field and back, enabling workflows previously unimagined on a scope. It is the first portable oscilloscope to offer benchtop performance and the award-winning Tektronix user interface. Weighing less than 1.8kgs and 38mm thin, the 2 Series MSO can fit into a small backpack, delivering unmatched performance and portability.
