What is most valuable?

* Easy to set up * Easy to capture * High fidelity of the data.

How has it helped my organization?

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.

What needs improvement?

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.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

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… more»

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

Typically, we don't switch as often in terms of brands because we do have a lot of software that we build up on a specific platform. What happens is the speed of the… more»

What other advice do I have?

We haven't gone wrong by sticking to the major brands. The user interface is pretty straightforward. The application space that the solution targets is mostly high-speed… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We evaluate all the vendors every time because the capital equipment expenditure is expensive. So every two or three years, when we upgrade hardware, we go back and… more»

What is most valuable?

We are able to capture the transient domain accurately. There are some technical features where you can do FFT, and do a little post processing.

How has it helped my organization?

A common practice: We use oscilloscopes to test for how many transient view forms there are and what the transient response for memory read or write process is. We want to ensure that we all meet all the specs for our product design… more»

What needs improvement?

I would like them to add more post processing capabilities (e.g., with new product specifications).

What other advice do I have?

It meet our basic needs. Since we do a lot of post processing when we download our waveforms to our computers, we need more post processing capabilities. If you have used oscilloscopes before, no matter the brand, it's probably easy to… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

If a new product becomes more capable and has a competitive price, then it is possible we might switch to a new brand. We would do demos and validation to see the functionality along with all types of evaluations before buying a product.

What is most valuable?

It's a fairly multi-purpose instrument. 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. It has a number of features which are fairly useful. The user… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

They're fairly competitive for pricing across the industry.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We have used a lot of Keysight's instruments. These are our two main vendors currently. We did get a demo and have stuck with the LeCroy ecosystem at this point for our real-time scopes.

What other advice do I have?

I would totally recommend this product. It's a pretty advanced product. Therefore, the learning curve does require some learning, but once you've mastered it, it's worth it. They're pretty good at keeping up with all the latest advances. As our budget permits, we'd obviously like to upgrade to… more»

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the Protocol Analyzer for protocol testing. The user interface is good, neat, intuitive, and easy to use.

How has it helped my organization?

Checking how many errors were on the channel by using the protocol analyzer has helped me to improve my design on PCIe PETracers.

What needs improvement?

I would like more technical details on what each packet represents and more information on the flow. The protocol side needs more improvement.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

When we did an evaluation of vendors, Teledyne was first among of them, then Keysight. We did demos, where I learned how to use the products.

What other advice do I have?

Teledyne is pretty good because they cover all the technical webinars. Also, they give a lot of seminars. The application space that we are using the solution to target is high-speed serial. For PCIe 3.0, we are looking at the PCIe add-on… more»

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the embedded protocol analysis. Also, the user interface is logically laid out. It has a lot of nice features for formatting and editing.

How has it helped my organization?

By pre-qualifying test devices with the tool, we're able to go back and make design changes before committing to silicon.

What needs improvement?

Deeper memory is always useful to us for longer sample times. In addition, 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.

What other advice do I have?

There are external modules that go with the product, which you connect to, to help get your testing worked out.
