Aimed for engineers, hobbyists and students, Rohde & Schwarz’s new oscilloscope comes at a starting price of €835, making it the most compact low-cost oscilloscope. Secondly, featuring eight-in-one instrument integration, the scope helps users get more value with a minimal footprint on bench space, says R&S.

With added options, the compact oscilloscope can BE USED 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.

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.
