Researched Keysight Oscilloscopes but chose Teledyne LeCroy Oscilloscopes: It has helped me to improve my design on PCIe PETracers, but I need more technical details on what each packet represents
Find out what your peers are saying about Keysight Oscilloscopes vs. Teledyne LeCroy Oscilloscopes and other solutions. Updated: January 2021.
455,536 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:
"Their software and hardware are integrated, so we don't have to spend a lot of time processing the data."
"The user interface is very user-friendly. You can use a lot of functions in their scope and will provide them for you. You can update the scope's software by asking Keysight to update the software when you want."
"It's easier to automate and connect with multiple devices, and at the same time with laptops."
"Its versatility and accuracy are the most valuable features."
"The user interface is very simple. Everyone can use it."
"While it depends on the field, the learning curve is usually really quick."
"Its 4 port has true differential with quite a few de-embedding features. It goes up to 40 GHz with high performance."
"The user interface is very good, very graphical. It provides a lot of help in using and operating it."
"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."
"The most valuable feature is the embedded protocol analysis."
"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."
"We are able to capture the transient domain accurately. There are some technical features where you can do FFT."
"Checking how many errors were on the channel by using the protocol analyzer has helped me to improve my design on PCIe PETracers."
"Sometimes, it's quite hard to get the technical support to come onsite. If we run into a hardware, measurement, or software issue, we may have to wait a long time for them to come."
"I would like more accuracy, particularly for multiport measurements."
"I would like more customized functions, so we can do the programming and definitions ourselves. There is an automation flow to capture this signal, and we would like to do this ourselves."
"While the user interface is good with respect to instrumentation, but with respect to documentation, I do not like it. Its documentation is slightly bad. It was not organized properly. The way it's organized is very difficult to understand, so it takes lot of time to search for one thing in particular."
"They can improve, but I don't know how."
"The integration between different software and hardware panels could be improved. In the software, it's not as strong as the other solutions."
"The user interface is not that good. It's not very intuitive. It's functional, but it's not designed for ease of operation. It's designed for functionality."
"Every component has a manufacturing tolerance. I hope Keysight software can help with the tolerance loss in manufacturing variance, which can be ten percent or five percent. In the real world, we cannot fire a really perfect test with very smooth impedance. I would like to see Keysight provide a solution to solve the issue of loss of manufacturing variance."
"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."
"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."
"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."
"Since we do a lot of post processing when we download our waveforms to our computers, we need more post processing capabilities."
"I would like more technical details on what each packet represents and more information on the flow."
Pricing and Cost Advice
"The major factor influencing the decision-makers is the price."
"The pricing is good for what they offer."
"If we rented the product, it would be more affordable than buying new."
"The pricing is on the high side."
"It's very expensive because this type of equipment is not so common. For a company buying it, this is a big investment."
"It would be good if it were a little bit cheaper, of course."
"We are looking at $600,000 and it's obviously expensive, but compared to others, everybody is in the same ballpark."
"The cost is always a struggle. We always wish that we could do more for less."
"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."
"The bandwidth is pretty expensive on these instruments, so we typically use it all."
"They're fairly competitive for pricing across the industry."
