Rohde & Schwarz Oscilloscopes Cons

Alan Martin
Power Integrity Lead at Elton Designs
The Rohde & Schwarz user interface is very oriented towards drop and drag functions on the screen. Some of those are just not obvious how to use. You have to have somebody get you over the hump.

There was a learning curve. Their use interface and the way that their products work are not intuitive to somebody who switches from other vendors.

The depth the the user GUI could be improved. It is a bit deep for new users. During the first two weeks we spent a lot of time finding the tabs.

We would like to have autotracking and auto error tracking for regression testing. We would like to know what error happened, when it happened, and during what scenario (such as setup), because right now we have to manually look at when it happened.

It would be good if they would try to automate most things because it has more pressing buttons and repetitive work. If there were automation scripts that they could provide, that would improve things.

In the next release, I would like to see report generation. It would make it a lot easier to refer back to and, when doing final testing, seeing what went on during the pre-test would help.

The user interface could be improved, e.g., the documentation on the menus. I have to open a separate document to figure out the functionality sometimes.

I'm against the Windows-based tools. Now everybody is running scopes, VNAs, and all their tools based on Windows. I don't want to see that in the future.

The size of the unit is too big, too heavy. It has to be made more portable and smaller.
