Rohde & Schwarz Oscilloscopes Primary Use Case

Alan Martin
Power Integrity Lead at Elton Designs
I'm very much in the power integrity field. I spend a lot of time working for a major semi-conductor manufacturer doing silicon validation. Our end product has to pass all the various FCC compliance tests, which is sort of the field of expertise that I have. For a customer to build a product with a switching mode power supply in it and be able to provide some degree of certification or comfort, they have to pass the compliance test which permits them to sell into the marketplace. That has always been an emphasis of mine, when I'm doing application engineering for a semiconductor company. They're selling to a company which integrates a switching mode device into their product. For them to sell that product, they have to jump through hoops, meeting a bunch of compliance tests that the FCC or European agencies establish. Once they pass, they are certified in their lab to sell. Then, I try and provide a lot of leading advice on how they can incorporate that noise generating device into a product with a high degree of likelihood that they will pass those tests. We are doing an investigation of the interface between audio power amplifiers and loudspeakers, including the speaker wiring that provides the interconnect. View full review »

We use it to measure power supply noise. We are using a couple of types of oscilloscopes from the RTO┬«2000 product line. We use the spectrum analyzer and signal source analyzer. View full review »
Brandon Jiao
Staff Transceiver Engineer at Xilinx, Inc.
We are using their VNA for our RFSoC PCB design guideline and EVBs. The application targets on 5G and high speed transceiver applications. We care much about the noise floor and crosstalk. With this machine, it's easier for us to debug or clarify where the noise source could be because of its accuracy. View full review »

Firmware Engineer at a tech vendor with 1,001-5,000 employees
The primary use case is debugging, prototyping, and validating the check site and design, e.g., the circuitry and hosts. We have several testing stages to go through before production. We have a lot of different models that we are using in the lab. We work with the highest view scopes and protocol analyzers, like PCIe, SAS, and SATA. We use them a lot. The PCIe analyzers, like PAM, have full size testing equipment in our labs. We are the server producers. We touch every corner: high-tech. electronic, electrical, down to the mechanical, materials, and performance. We provide the backbone to support the words - Internet connection. View full review »

We are using it for spectrum analysis, most frequency domain stuff, and phase noise measurements. View full review »
HwEngcb8f
HW Eng. at a tech company with 201-500 employees
I used it for board design, EMC/EMI measurements, EMC/EMI testing, and for RF measurements. I used it to test some parameters in phased array antennas, to do testing of far fields. I was measuring signals up to 15 gigahertz, and for EMI testing according to the FCC. I used it to support connected devices for IoT development. I used the full bandwidth of the product.

George Brown
Sr Electrical Engineer at TVH Americas
I'm using the EMC Receiver for compliance testing, EMC. For us, the product is targeting embedded systems, predominantly, and I have multiple antennas on the same board: Cell mode, GPS, Bluetooth. Keeping all those separate and identifying them is a major part of it. We are also using this product to support connected devices for IoT development. We utilize the full bandwidth.

Hardware5ce8
Hardware Engineer at a transportation company with 1,001-5,000 employees
I'm using the VNA for basic measurements, debugging, and troubleshooting in the automotive industry. The application space that we are using the solution to target is all types applications: high-speed digital, high-speed serial, channel evaluation, cables, measuring cables, and measuring connectors. I am measuring high-speed and low-speed signals. View full review »
Hwe5e6
User at a tech vendor with 51-200 employees
We use it for monitoring and measuring signals in telecom systems. We are measuring anything from low-speed to high-speed and we are usually using the whole bandwidth of the product. View full review »
CEO3d86
CEO at a manufacturing company with 1-10 employees
Our primary use case is telecom. I use a couple of their models. The application space that we are using the solution to target is 5G and another proprietary connectivity solution for digital health and autonomous driving. Essentially, we measure the signal to noise issue, various EVM, and other wireless performance. View full review »
EricWeber
Signal Integrity Engineer at Starkey Hearing Technologies
Our primary use case is audio measurements, as well as current measurements. We use the UPV Audio Analyzer mostly, not the scope. We use Bluetooth in our product. We are measuring currents for enabling Bluetooth. View full review »
