The HMO1002 digital oscilloscope from Rohde & Schwarz is a quality test and measurement device representing good value for money. Three models offer bandwidths of 50, 70 and 100 MHz and an optional eight-channel logic probe allows full use of the scope’s MSO capabilities. Among the stand-out features of the scope include its fast displayed waveform update rate and high vertical-input sensitivity.

The fan-less design offers a 1 GSample/s sample rate and a memory depth of 1 MSample. Additional built-in features make it an ideal diagnostic and teaching tool for a wide range of applications for students, service technicians and for developers of embedded systems. The three digit DVM function simplifies the service technician’s work, cuts down on work bench clutter and gives the HMO1002 the ability to make simultaneous voltage measurement on two analog channels.

Its function generator is particularly useful in educational environments, producing a range of different waveforms at frequencies up to 50 kHz. Pupils, trainees and students will find it useful to solve a variety of measurement tasks. An integrated pattern generator makes it easy for developers of embedded systems to configure and generate protocol telegrams at speeds up to 50 Mbit/s. This gives developers the freedom to program customized waveforms together with the supported predefined serial communication protocols. Integrated in the HMO1002 is an optional hardware-accelerated serial bus signal trigger and decoder with support for some of the most popular communication protocols (I2C, SPI, UART, CAN or LIN).

The 128k measurement point FFT-Analyzer function can hold its own against larger oscilloscopes, its representation of the time signal, measurement window and analysis region of the FFT with on-screen results greatly simplifies spectra measurements.
