Rohde & Schwarz Oscilloscopes Other Solutions Considered

Alan Martin
Power Integrity Lead at Elton Designs
In the case of the Rohde & Schwarz scope, if you set it up side-by-side against the LeCroy 12-bit scopes, it has about a six time lower noise floor, even though it is an 8-bit scope. This allows me to dig deeper down into the noise floor and chase down some particular parasitic that might cause a compliance test failure. It has better sensitivity, aside from the better feature set, which is really important to me. LeCroy tends to have some kind of either reliability issues or delays from their national service depot. I haven't done anything lately with Keysight or Tektronix. Anritsu also makes good gear too. View full review »

We tried Tektronix or Keysight LeCroy. I have nothing against LeCroy, as the company still uses it with some applications, specifically for voluntary measurements, our debugging tool, and multipurpose tool. View full review »

Yes. We compared a lot based on cost and support. We chose Rohde & Schwartz based on their long history in the RF application. Also, there is high correlation between different products, and our customers are using Rohde & Schwartz's products (which is good because we want to use the same platforms to do the same tests).

We did a comparison with the Keysight product, and the resolution of Keysight was more efficient and better compared against Rohde & Schwarz. View full review »

Tektronix was definitely on the shortlist but I still like Rohde & Schwarz displays and accuracy. We didn't do a trial before purchasing. View full review »

The noise sensitivity was better with Rohde & Schwarz, and the only competitor that we know of is KeySight and their PXA product. View full review »

We looked at Tektronix and Keysight. We did a trial or a demo of the products on our shortlist before purchasing them. What we learned was that the price varies from model to model but usually they're in the same ballpark. View full review »
