Oscilloscopes

Oscilloscopes, also called Digital Storage Oscilloscopes (DSOs) or Mixed Signal Oscilloscopes (MSOs), are a common type of test instrument used to capture, analyze, and troubleshoot electrical or real world physical signals. Oscilloscopes observe the change of electrical signals over time, continuously graphed on a display as voltage or amplitude vs. time. During observation, oscilloscopes can analyze waveforms parametrically (i.e. frequency, RMS, peak-to-peak amplitude, rise time, etc.) Non-electrical signals, especially mechatronic signals such as vibration, strain, temperature, or current can be converted to voltages and displayed.

Yokogawa oscilloscopes deliver a range of bandwidths, the world's only eight channel and sixteen channel (plus logic) oscilloscopes, unparalleled suites of triggers and signal analysis, and a unique ability to save multiple triggered-events to "History" memory.

  • A mixed signal oscilloscope is an instrument enabling the simultaneous, time correlated observations and analysis of analog with digital (logic) signals, to establish causal relationships between the various areas of a device's electronics. They are purpose-built tools for troubleshooting electrical anomalies, measuring parametric values, and monitoring cause and effect relationships between signals.

  • A ScopeCorder is an instrument combining a mixed signal oscilloscope and portable data acquisition recorder into a modular platform designed to capture both high-speed transients and low speed trends. Yokogawa’s ScopeCorder product family provides flexible and high-performance multi-channel test instruments by combining a variety of signal conditioning input modules, on-board calculations, and deep data acquisition storage into a off-the-shelf data acquisition solution.

  • An oscilloscope is only as good as its probes. Our range includes high voltage, differential, active, low capacitance, and passive types, with ranges to 30kV and frequency bandwidths to 5 GHz.

  • Current probes allow you to measure DC or AC current.  Yokogawa's selection of current probes allow measurements ranges up to 500 ARMS and bandwidths up to 100MHz.

  • Oscilloscopes accessories include a probe stand, cables, cases, various adaptors and more.

  • View, export, analyze, and manage your data using Yokogawa's oscilloscope application software.

  • Logic probes allow you to capture signals using the logic portion of a mixed signal instrument.  Yokogawa offers low and high voltage, isolated and non-isolated logic probes.

The definition of a high-performance oscilloscope really is all about the customer's point of view. Two scopes may have the same bandwidth, number of channels, sampling rate, operating modes, and memory length. Yet, one will be bought instead of the other because its software or triggering capability or measurement suite better matches the customer's application requirements.

Overview:

An increasing number of oscilloscope users are finding that the traditional four channels that have been the norm for decades are no longer sufficient. In this article you find out how eight channels provide the answer.

Overview:

Joseph Ting, digital oscilloscope product manager at Yokogawa Corporation of America, outlined two primary advantages in using a scope platform to analyze serial bus activity. 'First, a scope can identify waveform quality issues related to analog characteristics such as noise, rise time, or overshoot. By comparison,' he continued, 'a logic analyzer or dedicated protocol analyzer typically can only extract timing or protocol information. Second, a scope's additional channels support time correlation of the serial bus activity with other mixed signals in the system, such as power supply, analog sensor, or memory bus.'

Overview:

From digital home electronics to automobiles, a boom has recently occurred in various industries that use embedded systems in which functionality is achieved through processors and software. Even if the I/O to and from a system is an analog signal such as a sensor or voice transducer, the processor handles the A/D-converted digital signal. In order to debug these types of systems, we are now seeing an increasing need to interpret the digital signals and confirm the corresponding action.  Given this need, we have developed the DLM2000 series of mixed signal oscilloscopes which are compact, lightweight, portrait-shaped (293 mm (H) × 226 mm (W) × 193 mm (D), 4.5 kg, see figure 1) models that inherit the shape of our conventional DL1000 series. The DLM2000 comes standard with 8-bit logic, and offers advanced waveform display performance with waveform analysis functions.  The name “DLM2000” represents the familiar “DL” series plus mixed analog/digital system analysis (a mixed-signal oscilloscope), hence the “M.”

Overview:

In recent years, energy-saving instruments including inverters have been actively developed. Researchers in R&D sections want to evaluate their prototypes in real time to enhance the development efficiency. Therefore, measuring instruments are required to have functions for not only simply recording data but also immediately calculating power values and efficiency based on the data. To meet this demand, Yokogawa has developed a unique real-time math function for the DL850 ScopeCorder, our multi-channel waveform recording instrument. This paper gives an overview of the function and its application examples.
