January 16, 2018 Jamie Leland

Rohde & Schwarz has introduced the R&S RTC1000 oscilloscope series. The oscilloscope claims the highest instrument integration in its compact form factor, with the ability to function 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 a starting price of €835, the eight-in-one instrument aims to accommodate users in the field of education, engineers with low budgets, and hobbyists.

R&S RTC1000 oscilloscopes are available in models from 50 MHz to 300 MHz and offer bandwidth upgrades via software license all the way to 300 MHz bandwidth that 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 with LAN and USB interfaces.
