High-performance oscilloscope doubles maximum bandwidth to 16GHz

17-09-2019 | Rohde & Schwarz | Test & Measurement

Rohde and Schwarz has expanded its high-performance R&S RTP oscilloscope family in both bandwidth and functions for debugging and analysis. The new R&S RTP134 with 13GHz, and R&S RTP164 with 16GHz bandwidth support four channels to 8GHz, or two channels interleaved for the respective higher frequencies. For all RTP models, update options support bandwidth increases right up to 16GHz.


The new models support all functions already included for models up to 8GHz, as well as the high acquisition and processing rate, and the realtime de-embedding. The bandwidth of the digital trigger is extended to 16GHz to offer the highest precision for identifying very small and intermittent signals. The device triggers on realtime de-embedded signals and supports all trigger types incorporating pulse width, setup and hold, or runt, up to the full instrument bandwidth.


Excellent for debugging high-speed differential signals and offered for both data acquisition and trigger functions, the new math module introduced directly after the realtime de-embedding block supports addition or subtraction for any two signals, as well as signal inversion and common mode operations.


The device is claimed to be the most compact high-performance oscilloscope on the market, with a footprint up to 40% smaller than competitor products. It is also the quiet, due to the sophisticated cooling concept and silent fans.
