Rohde & Schwarz has added two new oscilloscope series to its range of oscilloscopes. The first series, RTM3000, features a customized 10-bit A/D converter that delivers a fourfold improvement compared to conventional 8-bit A/D converters. This results in sharper waveforms with more signal details that would otherwise be missed. Also, the second series, RTA4000, gives users longer time captures for testing and troubleshooting, due to its acquisition memory depth up to 1 Gsample, and makes it good for analyzing serial protocols, the company said.

The product’s 10-bit vertical resolution is perfect for power measurements, such as ripple and noise measurements of a DC line, which demand an oscilloscope with high vertical resolution, low noise and excellent DC gain linearity

Additionally, the instruments have more ‘memory depth’ which is the most important attribute that gives users longer time captures for testing and troubleshooting. “This is especially true when analyzing serial communications or power on and off sequences”, the company noted.

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 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.

“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 %”, R&S further claimed.

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.

The company has also made available a number of upgrade options for users with more demanding needs. 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.

The R&S RTM3000 and the R&S RTA4000 oscilloscopes are now available.
