Rohde & Schwarz stirs up market with new state-of-the-art embedded oscilloscope family

00409R&S RTM3000 oscilloscopeRohde & Schwarz is expanding its oscilloscope portfolio with the R&S RTM3000 and R&S RTA4000 series. Their first-in-class, 10-bit vertical resolution enables power measurements fulfilling the more stringent requirements demanded by advanced electronics. The R&S RTA4000, which is also ideal for analyzing serial protocols, even offers an acquisition memory depth up to 1 Gsample.

The new R&S RTM3000 oscilloscope offers bandwidths of 100 MHz, 200 MHz, 350 MHz, 500 MHz and 1 GHz. The products incorporate a proprietary 5 Gsample/s 10-bit ADC, and each model includes 40 Msample (80 Msample interleaved) per channel acquisition memory with an optional 400 Msample segmented acquisition memory. The new R&S RTA4000 oscilloscope offers bandwidths of 200 MHz, 350 MHz, 500 MHz and 1 GHz. These models include the same 10-bit ADC, but have even more memory, with an astonishing 100 Msample (200 Msample interleaved) per channel acquisition memory and standard 1 Gsample (1,000 Msample) segmented acquisition memory. Both instrument series feature a brilliant 10.1" capacitive touchscreen display to operate quickly and efficiently.

10-bit vertical resolution: perfect for power measurements

Power measurements, such as ripple and noise measurements of a DC line, demand an oscilloscope with high vertical resolution, low noise and excellent DC gain linearity.

For most of the last three decades, oscilloscopes have predominantly offered 8 bits of vertical resolution, which allows a signal to be mapped to one of 256 vertical positions. The 10-bit ADCs of the R&S RTM3000 and R&S RTA4000 series support 1024 vertical positions. This is four times better than the common 8-bit oscilloscopes in this segment and essential for ripple and noise measurements. Both oscilloscope series provide extremely low signal noise, while the R&S RTA4000 series also offers class-leading signal integrity characteristics such as a DC gain accuracy down to 1 %.

Unparalleled memory depth: essential for serial protocol analysis

After bandwidth and sample rate, memory depth is the most important attribute that determines the instrument’s ability to handle a large range of troubleshooting tasks. Additional acquisition memory gives users longer time captures for testing and troubleshooting. This is especially true when analyzing serial communications or power on and off sequences. The R&S RTM3000 series oscilloscopes have eight to 20 times more memory than leading instruments from other manufacturers in this class. With 1 Gsample segmented memory, the R&S RTA4000 series has 200 times more memory than other oscilloscopes in its class that offer segmented memory.

While the R&S RTM3000 series comes in two- and four-channel models, the R&S RTA4000 series oscilloscopes are exclusively four-channel models. Base prices start at EUR 3,190 for the two-channel 100 MHz R&S RTM3002. The four-channel 200 MHz R&S RTA4004 starts at EUR 5,230. For users with more demanding needs, a number of upgrade options are available. These include 16 integrated digital channels with a mixed signal oscilloscope (MSO) option, protocol decode and triggering options for a variety of industry standard buses as well as an integrated waveform generator.

FPCB Prototyping: the "right" ProtoLaser for every material

00409LPKF ProtoLaser

Printed circuit boards made of flex materials (polymers) are recommended for components that require little space, moveable electronics or fast data connections. They are used for signal transmission or wiring and are often used in combination with rigid printed circuit boards. Typical applications include LED lighting, PC and mobile antennas, various sensors and wearables.

Polyamide offers high mechanical stability, wide temperature ranges and chemical resistance. Foil polymers such as polyester (PET), polyethylene (PEN, PEI) and fluoropolymers are increasingly being used. Machining these materials is often demanding. LPKF ProtoLasers play a key role in the prototyping of flexible PCBs. LPKF has carried out various tests to determine which laser is best suited for which material application.

Processing was carried out with the ProtoLaser U4, ProtoLaser S4 and ProtoLaser R - with significantly different results. Materials used: the polyimide core material Kapton® from DuPont™, DuPont™ Pyralux® (Pyralux® TK and Pyralux® AP), Mylar® PET and a polyamide from the Kempel group. LPKF published the results in the technical report "Fast Prototyping of flexible PCBs using LPKF ProtoLaser".

ProtoLaser for every material

Flexible printed circuit boards have been the solution for connections that need to be movable, that require little space and/or weight, or that require a fast data connection. They usually have only the passive function of transmitting signals. They replace cables and are often found as a part of switches in keyboards, in LED lighting, PC and mobile antennas, various sensors such as motion controls or drug delivery sensors and in wearables.

 Flexible PCBs - typically based on a thin polyimide (PI) film - are multifunctional and can be produced as a single, double or multilayer with plated through holes and surface treatment similar to rigid circuit boards. LPKF ProtoLasers play a key role in the prototyping of flexible PCBs. LPKF has carried out various tests to determine which laser system is best suited for which material application.

Tap the Third Dimension with Our Innovative Video Microscope – Technoscope 3D

Relaxed Working with a Clear View on Brilliant00409Technoscope 3D 2

3D Images – Perfect Ergonomics for Your Quality Control and Production

Beside classic stereo microscopes, digital 2D video inspection systems have been introduced to the areas of quality control and intricate precision work due to their improved ergonomics. However, image capturing and display on the monitor have been confined to the 2nd dimension up to now. Therefore, precision work under the camera requiring spatial coordination or the assessment of topographical structures and defects are hardly possible.

Technoscope 3D closes this gap. Profit from the benefits of Technoscope and increase the efficiency of your quality control and production.

Your Benefits:

  • High-resolution 3D image material makes fatigue-free working possible
  • Ergonomics at the workplace is paramount
    An upright sitting position and a relaxed arm position are the prerequisite for the effective handling and viewing of smallest parts during assembly and control. The amply dimensioned free working space enables you to position the monitor directly behind the object. A round back resulting from viewing the image through an eyepiece or a twisted upper body posture when viewing the monitor are now things of the past.
  • “No Latency” for highest-precision work
    Movements are displayed in the 3D image without latency. This means real-time handling, which enables you to work faster and more precisely.
  • Uncomplicated commissioning and simple handling
  • Fast documentation of the work results                                                    
    A screenshot can be made by pushing a button anytime and the frozen image can be saved via USB stick/network or used for further processing.

Applications:

  • Quality control, high-throughput visual inspection tasks
  • Precision work, such as assembly of smallest components, connector assembly, solder joint inspection, etc.
  • Monitoring of spatial structures (crystallography, materials science, etc.)

Results

With LPKF equipment, prototype fabrication – from data preparation to assembly – takes only one day.

LPKF systems can produce multilayers of up to eight layers in addition to single and double-sided circuit boards. They even handle RF and microwave circuit board manufacturing with ease.

All LPKF systems are perfectly coordinated to ensure the fastest possible production process: once the data has been imported, a LPKF circuit board plotter or ProtoLaser will start processing. The structured circuit board is then used as a substrate that can be through-plated, laminated and populated. Processes for applying solder resist and screen printing complete the product line.
