The 9310A family offers two channel and four channel general-purpose 400 MHz digital oscilloscopes. They capture single-shot events at up to 100 MS/s, and repetitive signals at 10 GS/s. Record lengths up to 1M points provide outstanding horizontal resolution, and allow fast digitizing of long-duration events. Memories can be segmented, for minimum dead time between acquisitions.
Live waveforms on the main timebase may be viewed simultaneously with up to 3 expansions, showing all of the signal detail. Expansions are shown as highlights on the main trace.
The LeCroy ProBus intelligent probe system allows automatic sensing of the probe type. For LeCroy's active FET probes it also provides variable offset at the probe tip. Offset and coupling are controlled from the scope front panel.
SMART Trigger modes like Glitch, Window and Dropout allow you to capture precisely the events of interest.
A comprehensive range of signal processing functions, on live or stored waveforms, allows waveform manipulation without destroying the underlying data.
The 9310A family features the proven user-interface of LeCroy's portable scope family. A bright 9" CRT allows optimum waveform viewing on a high resolution 810 x 696 pixel screen. Menus and text are arranged around the graticules - they never overwrite the waveforms. Each of the main control functions has a dedicated single knob, to keep the scope's performance at your fingertips.
DOS compatible floppy disk, PCMCIA portable hard drive and memory card options store waveforms and test setups, and make transferring data to a PC easier than ever before. Hardcopies can be made on GPIB, RS-232-C or Centronics printers or plotters. An optional internal high resolution graphics printer is also available.
Optional packages provide extensive Waveform Processing including FFT and Enhanced Resolution to 11 bits.
