Original Press Release:

LeCroy® WaveAce(TM) Series

Digital Oscilloscopes with 60 MHz to 300 MHz Bandwidths for Simple, Fast and Efficient Debug with starting prices from £620.

LeCroy® Corporation introduces the WaveAce(TM) series of digital oscilloscopes that expands its line of portable, affordable and easy to use oscilloscopes in the 60 MHz to 300 MHz range. The WaveAce(TM) improves troubleshooting and shortens debug time by providing unique features such as long memory, a color display, extensive measurement capabilities, and advanced triggering. A streamlined, time-saving user interface provides quick access to all important controls. With its USB host and device ports the WaveAce easily connects to a memory stick, PC or printer. The variety of standard acquisition modes and advanced triggers simplifies capturing even the most complex waveforms making the WaveAce a valuable tool for design, debug and troubleshooting.

The new WaveAce is available in 2 channel models with bandwidths of 60 MHz, 100 MHz, 200 MHz and 300 MHz, all models have color displays. With a maximum sample rate of 2 GS/s and up to 18 kpts memory the WaveAce is a performance leader in this class of portable oscilloscopes. The long memory allows users to capture full sample rate acquisitions that are 4 to 6 times longer than the main competition. Improving how a user can understand and analyze waveforms the WaveAce has 32 built-in automated parameters including advanced timing parameters for skew, phase and edge to edge measurements between channels. Additional features such as Pass/Fail testing, user definable digital filters and a waveform sequence recorder all simplify and shorten debug time.

The high performance and large feature set of the WaveAce is controlled by an intuitive user interface with 11 different languages and streamlined front panel. All important controls and menus are accessed from the front panel with a single button press. All position and offsets can be reset by simply pressing the knob, pressing the V/Div knob will switch between fixed and variable gain and pressing the T/div knob will toggle between zoom modes. Buttons on the front panel that open and close menus or switch modes are backlit to let the user know exactly what mode the WaveAce is operating in.

Documenting results and saving screenshots, waveforms and setups is easy with the WaveAce. Internal storage can hold up to 20 waveforms and 20 setups. Mass storage can be done by connecting a USB memory device directly to the front panel of the oscilloscope. The rear panel USB port allows for direct printer connection or connection to a PC for control with a software utility called EasyScope. EasyScope enables remote control through a virtual front panel and also provides an easy method for saving waveforms and screenshots directly to a PC.
