LeCroy_LabMaster_9Zi-ALeCroy introduces modular Oscilloscope Systems with up to 20 Channels

06 May 2011 – LeCroy Corporation’s new line of LabMaster 9 Zi-A Modular Oscilloscope Systems provides more bandwidth (45 GHz), sample rate (120 GS/s), and channels (up to 20) than any other oscilloscope, with analysis memory up to 768 Mpts/ch. In addition, LeCroy’s LabMaster 9 Zi-A high-bandwidth, modular oscilloscope architecture signals the company’s direction at the highest end of its oscilloscope product line.

Future ultra-high bandwidth oscilloscopes will be developed and deployed in the LabMaster 9 Zi-A family. Users of ultra-high bandwidth oscilloscopes (>20GHz bandwidth) want leading edge performance, upgradeability, the ability to view multiple channels, and flexible modes of operation. Only LabMaster 9 Zi-A provides this capability.

The LabMaster 9 Zi-A system architecture separates the oscilloscope signal acquisition function from the display, control and processing functions. LabMaster 9 Zi-A “Master” Acquisition Modules contain the display, control, and a single acquisition module in one unit. Additional “Slave” Acquisition Modules contain additional acquisition systems. A powerful server-class CPU is in a third module, and it provides processing power for the immense amounts of data made possible by LabMaster 9 Zi-A. By using proprietary ChannelSync technology, the LabMaster 9 Zi-A “Master” Acquisition Module can perfectly synchronize “Slave” Acquisition Modules thus providing never-before-achieved channel density in high performance oscilloscopes. The flexibility of the LabMaster 9 Zi-A design also allows users to configure LabMaster 9 Zi-A systems for conventional benchtop use with enhanced economic value.

LabMaster 9 Zi-A’s modular design provides the simplest upgrade path in both bandwidth and channel count ─ start with a minimum configuration and add channels over time by simply adding additional acquisition modules, upgrading bandwidth on existing modules, or mixing and matching bandwidths in one system. The platform even provides for future expandability as LeCroy introduces additional acquisition modules rated for higher bandwidth. Future needs can be met by adding additional LabMaster 9 Zi-A acquisition modules to existing systems in order to increase bandwidth, number of channels or both. LeCroy plans to announce additional LabMaster 9 Zi-A acquisition modules offering the world’s highest bandwidth and channel density before the end of the calendar year.

LabMaster 9 Zi-A enables the leading-edge technologies that provide enhanced high speed data transfer and communication- such as 28-32 Gb/s SERDES, multi-lane serial data (40/100 GbE, PCIe Gen3), and optical coherent modulation communications. These technologies are all necessary to meet the ever-growing volume of network traffic driven by cloud computing, mobile computers, and streaming video. LabMaster 9 Zi-A is also ideal for defense and aerospace applications where high channel count and high bandwidth are both required.
