Apart from functions like parameters with statistics an important customer demand could be fulfilled: HAMEG Instruments offers the option HOO12 which allows triggering and decoding of CAN and LIN protocols for less than 500€. Combined with the options HOO10/11for I2C, SPI, and UART/RS-232 HAMEG now offers to most of the customers in the automotive, medical, aircraft, and automation industries a complete solution for the development of embedded systems.
Chosen by the readers of the magazine Elektronik as “Products of the year” in 2010 and 2012 the HMO series oscilloscopes even decode 2 CAN buses simultaneously, hence they are especially useful for system designers. A table presentation for the decoded values of all protocols was implemented which presents all informations of a message telegram in one line. Special trigger properties allow the precise isolation of single messages. For individual measuring tasks the 2/4 analog channels and 8/16 digital channels can be annotated which is very useful. Users who are mainly interested in the protocol level may even use the least expensive oscilloscope of the HMO series, the 70MHz HMO722 and the CAN option to analyze this bus for less than 1,700€.
In accordance with the protocol analysis of the CAN bus HAMEG presents a 200MHz differential probe HZO40 and a 800MHz differential probe HZO41. Both are outstanding by their excellent electrical properties (3.5pF resp. 1pF input capacity, 1MOhm resp. 200KOhm input resistance), a variety of practical accessories and customizable power supply options. Combined with the respective HMO series oscilloscope (or any other one) many measurements on differential signals are possible without loading the signal appreciably. The differential 200MHz and 800MHz probes HZ040/41 are available at list prices of 1,250€ resp. 2,150€.
