Special Features

Touch Display

The 10.1-inch capacitive multi-touch screen supports various touch gestures, making it always keep up with the mainstream development trend for screen operation. Meanwhile, the Rigol MSO8000 digital oscilloscope still keeps the knob and key operation as what RIGOL traditional digital oscilloscopes have, optimizing the user-friendly interactive experience to a large extent.

Real-time eye diagram

The Rigol MSO8000 supports the eye measurement for all the analog channels, and also provides measurement for several parameters of the eye diagram:

  • eye height
  • eye width
  • eye amplitude
  • crossing percentage
  • Q Factor

It also supports various clock recovery methods, such as constant clock (auto, semi-auto, manual), first-order PLL, second-order PLL, and explicit clock, to meet the demands of customers for different application scenarios.

Jitter analysisThe jitter analysis is mainly used to measure and analyze the clock jitter. The Rigol MSO8000 can accomplish the following jitter analysis items:

  • TIE
  • cycle to cycle
  • +width to +width
  • -width to -width

Super High Sample Bandwidth Ratio

Bandwidth and the sample rate are two key technical specifications that engineers take priority in choosing the digital oscilloscope. The Rigol MSO8000 provides a maximum of 10 GSa/s real-time sample rate and 20X sample rate/bandwidth ratio for 500 MHz bandwidth, which makes itself far ahead of the same level products.

600.000 wfms/s Capture Rate Engineers often have to spend a lot of time and efforts in locating the problem in design and debugging. Therefore, a proper debugging tool will help engineers to work more efficiently. Das Rigol MSO8000 digital oscilloscope can provide the waveform capture rate of up to 600,000 wfms/s, so that the glitches and infrequent events in waveforms can be quickly identified, greatly improving the debugging efficiency for the engineers.

256-level intensity grading

256-level intensity grading display can reflect the occurrence frequencies of the infrequent events. Its newly added color persistence function can highlight the signal of different probabilities with a different color grading. You can set the persistence time to control the duration time for the waveforms to be displayed on the screen, so that the display capability of the infrequent events can be further enhanced.

Full Memory Auto Measurement

The auto measurement is the basic tool for engineers to make a rapid analysis of the signals, and it requires more efficient measurement process and accurate measurement results. Rigol MSO8000 supports hardware full memory auto measurement, provides measurements of 41 waveform parameters, supports displaying the statistics and analysis of the measurement results for 10 items.

Histogram Analysis

The Rigol MSO8000 supports the histogram analysis function, available to provide the horizontal waveform histogram, vertical waveform histogram, and measurement histogram. The horizontal waveform histogram is applicable for observing the number of jitters and jitter distribution of the clock signal; the vertical waveform histogram is applicable for observing the noise distribution of the signal; and measurement histogram is applicable for observing the distribution of the measurement results of the signal under test over a long period of time to help users quickly find out the potential abnormalities of the signal.

Pass/Fail Test

The Rigol MSO8000 is equipped with hardware pass/ fail test function as the standard configuration, which can be used in signal monitoring for a long time, signal monitoring during design, and signal test in the production line. You can set the test mask based on the known “standard” waveform, and then compare the signal under test with the “standard” waveform to display the statistics on the test results.

Enhanced FFT Analysis

The Rigol MSO8000 series can analyze 1 Mpts of FFTs, which improves the frequency resolution to a large extent, convenient for you to better analyze the disturbance noise in the circuit under test. To adjust the spectrum waveforms to be observed, set the center frequency and the span; or set the start frequency and the stop frequency.

A Variety of Triggers and Protocol Decodings

The Rigol MSO8000 digital oscilloscope provides powerful trigger functions, including Edge trigger, Pulse trigger, Slope trigger, Video trigger, Pattern trigger, Duration trigger, Timeout trigger, Runt trigger, Window trigger, Delay trigger, Setup/Hold trigger, Nth Edge trigger, and serial protocol trigger. These triggers can help engineers accurately and quickly capture and identify the signals of great interest. The optional serial protocol decoding is capable of decoding 4 serial buses simultaneously. The full memory data analysis and the decoding event table display can help engineers quickly find out the system failure and locate the symbol error waveforms, greatly improving the debugging efficiency of the overall system signals. The Rigol MSO8000 also provides optional decodings such as RS232/UART, I2C, SPI, CAN, LIN, I2S, FlexRay, and MILSTD-1553.

Search and Navigation

As the memory depth of the oscilloscope becomes higher, locating a specific event from the thousands of captured complicated waveforms is a tedious task that requires much time and efforts. The waveform search function can help you quickly locate the concerned events and make a mark.
