Teledyne LeCroy has introduced the WaveJet Touch oscilloscope, providing a combination of performance and price — 500 MHz for €4,990 / £4,315. The availability of a touch screen as well as debug tools and advanced triggering is not available among oscilloscopes with comparable specifications and pricing. Built on the popular WaveJet 300 oscilloscope platform, the WaveJet Touch is available in two models with 350 MHz or 500 MHz bandwidth, four channels, up to 5 Mpts of memory at 2 GS/s, and a 7.5” touch screen display.

The WaveJet Touch offers the same debug tools, connectivity, portability, and ease of use as its predecessor, the WaveJet 300A while adding a wide variety of new features and toolset enhancements to shorten debug time. Intricate signals can be acquired with ease by combining a long capture time with a variety of complex triggers, including triggers for I2C, SPI, and UART. Digital low-pass, high-pass, and simple moving average filtering permit easy isolation of signals of interest.

The choice of normal, peak detect, average, and high resolution acquisition modes provides flexibility when acquiring waveforms. Pass/fail mask and measurement testing enables deeper analysis and performs characterization and validation testing with ease. Scroll back in time to view previous waveforms and isolate anomalies using Replay mode. Standard GPIB, LAN, and USB device ports provide flexibility for remote control. All of this comes in a small form factor and lightweight design, making it easy to carry and use anywhere.

Priced at less than comparable 500 MHz oscilloscope, the all-inclusive WaveJet Touch oscilloscopes deliver incomparable value. Available immediately, the 350 MHz WaveJet 334T is €4,190 / £3,625 and the
500 MHz WaveJet 354T is €4,990 / £4,315
