Teledyne LeCroy significantly expands the capabilities of its industry-leading oscilloscopes with the introduction of the HDA125 High-speed Digital Analyzer. The HDA125 digital acquisition system captures 18 channels of digital data at 12.5 GS/s. Adding it to Teledyne LeCroy oscilloscopes by means of the LBUS interface architecture results in the most flexible, highest-performance mixed-signal solution available. Also announced is the QuickLink probing system, featuring low-cost, high-fidelity probe tips that work with both the HDA125 and Teledyne LeCroy WaveLink probes using the new Dxx30-QL QuickLink adapter.
HDA125 High-speed Digital Analyzer
The HDA125 samples 18 input signals at 80 ps intervals (12.5 GS/s) for accurate characterization of the fastest signals. However, sample rate is only half the storyhigh-speed embedded systems testing often poses challenging signal amplitude conditions. The High-speed Digital Analyzer meets these challenges with a 3-GHz digital leadset, ultra-low probe loading, and industry-leading sensitivity (150 mV minimum signal swing). The system ensures the most precise digital signal interpretation with a unique hysteresis adjustment capability, and three times better threshold accuracy than competing mixed-signal instruments.
QuickLink Probing System
The QuickLink probe tip system is designed from the ground up to be compatible with both the HDA125 High-speed Digital Analyzer and with Teledyne LeCroy’s WaveLink series of differential analog probes. This cross-connection capability allows a device under test (DUT) to be equipped with QuickLink Solder-In (QL-SI) tips at all desired test points, enabling swapping of connections between digital and analog acquisition systems as needed.
