LeCroy Corporation’s new line of WaveMaster 8Zi-A digital oscilloscopes, Serial Data Analyzers, and Disk Drive Analyzers provides up to 45 GHz of bandwidth and 120 GS/s of sample rate. Asserted to be the world’s highest bandwidth and fastest sample rate real-time oscilloscope, the series also features 768 Megapoints of analysis memory. The introduction of a model with 20 GHz of true analog bandwidth on four channels is said to provide the highest performance and signal fidelity available on four measurement channels. On all models, acquisition capability can be doubled with the use of the Zi-8CH-SYNCH Oscilloscope Synchronization Kit, with all acquired channels displayed on a single display grid. The standard sample rate is 120 GS/s for 45 GHz bandwidth, 80 GS/s for 25 to 30 GHz bandwidths, and 40 GS/s on all 4 channels at 20 GHz bandwidth. For 4 to 20 GHz bandwidths, the standard sample rate is 40 GS/s on all four channels with an option to increase the sampling rate to 80 GS/s on two channels. All memory is available at full record lengths for analysis processing, 20 Mpts/ch is provided standard, with memory options up to 256 Mpts/ch available.
