The new R&S RTC1000 oscilloscope series features the highest instrument integration in its compact form factor. Starting at a price of EUR 835, the instrument’s comprehensive features are tailored to meet the needs of users in the field of education, engineers with low budgets and hobbyists.

Rohde & Schwarz recently announced the launch of the new R&S RTC1000 oscilloscope series. The compact oscilloscope can double as an eight-channel logic analyzer, a four-channel pattern generator and a protocol analyzer for I2C, SPI, UART/RS-232, CAN and LIN; and as a digital voltmeter, component tester, spectrum analyzer and counter. With this eight-in-one instrument integration, users get more value with a minimal footprint on bench space.

Joerg Fries, Vice President Market Segments for T&M at Rohde & Schwarz, says: “Our engineers set out to design a cost-sensitive oscilloscope that retains high quality and high instrument integration. The combination of eight other products all in a single compact instrument, especially the unique component tester, has been very well received by early test customers.”

R&S RTC1000 oscilloscopes are available in models from 50 MHz to 300 MHz. They are the first in the 1000 class to offer bandwidth upgrades via software license all the way to 300 MHz bandwidth; these upgrades can be purchased as test needs increase over time. The two-channel oscilloscopes have maximum sample rates of 2 Gsample/s and a memory depth of 2 Msample. All R&S RTC1000 models come as standard with LAN and USB interfaces.

The R&S RTC1000 oscilloscope is now available from Rohde & Schwarz and selected distribution channel partners. For more information, visit www.rohde-schwarz.com/RTC1000
