Gives you the capability to increase the voltage strength more than what you have in your signal, but it could use...
We are able to capture the transient domain accurately. I would like them to add more post processing capabilities.
Find out what your peers are saying about Anritsu Oscilloscopes vs. Teledyne LeCroy Oscilloscopes and other solutions. Updated: September 2019.
372,185 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.
Checking how many errors were on the channel by using the protocol analyzer has helped me to improve my design on PCIe PETracers.
We are able to capture the transient domain accurately. There are some technical features where you can do FFT.
It has a nice high-resolution screen. It is easy to set up the scope triggers, has a lot of scope trigger options for capturing waveforms, and seamlessly goes into the spectrum analysis mode.
The most valuable feature is the embedded protocol analysis.
We heavily use it to validate the design assumption. In many cases, it was able to point out things that were not available to us in simulation.
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.
I would like more technical details on what each packet represents and more information on the flow.
Since we do a lot of post processing when we download our waveforms to our computers, we need more post processing capabilities.
They could always work on the software stability of the products, particularly now that everything has switched over to a Windows-based interface. It creates a lot of crashes and bugs, which typically is a problem among all instruments.
The interconnect methods to the device are a little limited right now. I'd like to see other ways of being able to connect to the device.
I would like them to be current with the latest standards. So, as soon as a new standard comes in, ensure that it gets rolled into the existing software.
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 bandwidth is pretty expensive on these instruments, so we typically use it all.
They're fairly competitive for pricing across the industry.
I would like them to include a lot of the add-on options as part of the package. Typically, we start in at a price, and by the time we add up all the options that we need which are available, we are at double or triple the original price.
