Find out what your peers are saying about Anritsu Oscilloscopes vs. Keysight Oscilloscopes and other solutions. Updated: May 2019.
340,467 professionals have used our research since 2012.
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
The Pulse Pattern Generator (PPG) and Error Detector are co-located, which makes it easier to use because I can just probe it directly on the PCB.
The jitter function included into the system has helped me in terms of improving the capabilities of our product.
It gives you the capability to increase the Tap levels and voltage strength more than what you have in your signal.
The user interface is easy, simple, and practical.
The most valuable feature is its frequency range.
It supports the PAM-4 encoding scheme. We use that to do our PAM-4 receiver validation.
We can extract signal loss, skew, DKDF... and the tool is very flexible.
Because they're such a big industry standard name, their products are standardized across many customers, which is why people own these products.
The customer support is very good. If you need an application to do any measurement, you can easily get a hold of people to help you with it. This is a whole ecosystem.
The user interface is simple and straightforward, so I can easily measure frequency, time, and other complex measurements.
It has the highest bandwidth and resolution on the market.
The technical support is good, and it has very strong customer support. They sent an engineer to us who gave us some training and tutorials.
The Keysight Ecal feature has made it very easy for me to do calibrations.
The product's functionality makes things easier for my partner, who is doing the PCIe design. He is able measure the product's usage and bit error rate.
Before silicon came back, our customers' performance was affected. Using these tools, we are able to deliver performance to our customers.
I would like a better GUI with navigation. This should make it easier to compare to competitors, like Textronix or Keysight.
Sometimes, the forms keep changing because of new product technology. If they could reduce the amount of change in the form, this would be good.
Right now, it's a minimal tool. They could make it more dynamic by adding dynamic features, which could help us with doing effective analysis.
I would like the frequency range to be extended because of the speed. Electronics are moving forward to higher speeds, so it's better to have higher frequencies.
The product's antennas and radar applications need improvement.
The user interface is a bit complicated because they have so many tabs. If they could simplify it, this would be helpful and appreciated.
I would like to see them improve the software. The new version can be improved. It's not quite stable. It restarts a lot.
There is a learning curve depends on the client that I am working with. E.g., if I'm working with a client, and they have a test and measurement equipment company, when I go to another company, the new company may not be using the same model.
The user interface has a load of features that come with it, which is why it is an eight out of ten.
The technical support is okay, but sometimes they are on a different page than us. If it is something wrong with the scope, they are okay. However, if something technical goes wrong, like the calibration, it is hard to get the information that we need because it is hard to share everything and explain all the measurements in real-time.
We are using this product to support connected devices for IoT development, but we need more automation.
I would like them to build in more high-speed functions, such as FEC or PCIe, built into the array. PERT to be built-in for more specific product call. These would make our lives much easier.
If the simulation runs for a long time, it will suddenly crash. If they can debug that, the product would be better.
Their GUI is not the best. They need to improve on that. I think their software team needs to put in a little bit more work on how they are presenting the application on the scope.
I would also like to see a more detailed change-notice from version to version, what changed. If they had a more detailed description of what is changing and the reason for it, rather than just releasing, that would be good for us so we know whether or not to upgrade.
Pricing and Cost Advice
The pricing is costly.
Price-wise, it is much cheaper than its competitors.
The first version of the product is always expensive, then once there is competition, it will be cheaper.
I think everyone gets a demo before purchasing.
It's very expensive equipment and cannot be upgraded after five years. If you buy equipment today, in five years, it won't be upgradeable. You have to upgrade it within the first five years that you buy it.
Pricing is always expensive. It would be better if they lowered the price.
It is expensive, but I guess that is why it works.
The pricing is very expensive.
The price is affordable for us, but for smaller companies, probably not.
Our solution is upgradable. However, upgrading depends on how much money the company is willing to spend, because each upgrade will take a million dollars.
The pricing is very expensive, but with leading technology, nothing is cheap.
The pricing is always high.
They're not cheap.
Pricing always is very expensive. There's no free lunch.
Pricing can be improved a bit. They try to make the pricing competitive but I think there are times that the competitors have good pricing.
