LeCroy Launches Six M-Type Oscilloscopes

LeCroy Corporation announces it is expanding the M-Type oscilloscope lineup to include six new models ranging from 200 MHz to 2 GHz. Designed to be the most capable instruments available in their class, the oscilloscopes come standard with a full set of analysis tools including WaveScan(TM), an advanced search and analysis feature; WaveStream(TM), a fast viewing mode; and LabNotebook(TM), a unique tool for documentation and report generation. Whether looking at the frequency spectrum, analyzing jitter, or performing mixed signal measurements, the M-Type oscilloscopes combine high performance and ease of use with the best tools for understanding and validating a design.

LeCroy M-Type OscilloscopeThe WaveRunner MXi oscilloscopes ship standard with a variety of analysis tools and application programs, such as Tracks, Histograms, long memory FFTs, user-defined functions, mixed signal options, power device analysis, jitter and timing analysis, and a host of other applications. With a maximum sample rate of 10 Gigasamples/second and a standard 12.5 Mpts/Ch of memory (interleaving to 25 Mpts/Ch), the WaveRunner MXi series goes beyond debug and validation to help engineers understand the root causes of complex problems.

The WaveSurfer MXs oscilloscopes offer strong fundamentals for lab and bench oscilloscope use at 5 Gigasamples per second on each channel with 10 Mpts/Ch memory. Advanced triggering helps an engineer find rare events and glitches, while the built-in HDTV trigger speeds the design of new products. All oscilloscopes in the WaveSurfer MXs series come complete with an advanced math package, including one million point FFTs.

In addition, the entire M-Type Oscilloscope lineup is compatible with LeCroy’s optional low-speed serial triggering and decode packages to help engineers quickly analyze I2C, SPI, UART, RS-232, CAN, LIN and FlexRay protocols through the use of easy-to-read transparent overlays, search/zoom capabilities, and tabular displays. M-Type Oscilloscopes are also hot-plug ready for LeCroy’s 36-channel Mixed Signal Oscilloscope.

U.S. list prices range from $7,570 through $11,990 for the new WaveSurfer MXs, and $11,690 through $19,900 for the new WaveRunner MXi. Delivery is 5 weeks ARO.
