Further, Finer, Faster — More channels, high-definition, and higher bandwidth are ideal for high-power three-phase power electronics systems analysis
Teledyne LeCroy today announces the HDO8000 oscilloscope product line with 8 analog input channels, 12-bits of vertical resolution utilizing Teledyne LeCroy’s HD4096 technology, and up to 1 GHz of bandwidth. The HDO8000 oscilloscopes have maximum performance, going further (8 channels), with finer resolution (12-bits) and faster (up to 1 GHz bandwidth). A wide variety of mixed-signal, serial data, long memory, and probe options and accessories are available with the HDO8000 oscilloscopes.
The HDO8000 is ideal for high-power three-phase power electronics system analysis. The global market for power electronics is growing quickly, especially in high-power and three-phase energy conversion applications focused on distributed power generation (solar PV, wind, etc.) and hybrid electric and electric (HEV and EV) vehicle propulsion systems. New and expanded efficiency requirements for electric motors and variable frequency (motor) drives are also driving higher demand for three-phase power electronics.
Additionally, 8 channel high-definition oscilloscopes are highly useful in debugging deeply embedded systems in applications such as automotive electronic control units (ECUs), consumer appliances (e.g. washing machines, refrigerators) and industrial systems (e.g. robotics) that contain a complex mix of power electronic, power, clock, digital logic, serial data, and analog sensor signals. More channels and more resolution provide faster insight into embedded system behavior.
HD4096 High Definition Technology
HD4096 High Definition Technology is rooted in high-sample-rate 12-bit ADCs; amplifiers with high signal-to-noise ratios; and a low-noise system architecture. This technology enables high definition oscilloscopes to capture and display signals of up to 1 GHz with high sample rate and 16 times more resolution than other oscilloscopes. In addition to HD4096 technology, the HDO8000 features Teledyne LeCroy’s ERES (Enhanced Resolution) filtering, which enables users to gain up to three additional bits of resolution for 15-bit vertical resolution.
