I finally finished my review and road test of the Rohde & Schwarz RTM3004 oscilloscope. For those that don’t know, that’s a very high-end 1GHz oscilloscope. It’s a mixed signal oscilloscope (4 analog and 16 digital channels). It’s also got a built-in function and pattern generator. There’s also some really nice FFT and Spectrum Analysis functionality. It’s got a great 10″ touch screen.
Basically it’s amazing compared to the Keysight DSOX1102G and Rigol DS1074Z that I’ve been used to. There’s nothing wrong with these two ‘scopes of course. It’s just that if they’re a nice family car, then I feel I’ve just been asked to drive around in a Ferrari for a month and write about it. Oh yeah – and you can keep the Ferrari when you’re done. As you can imagine, I’m quite happy about it.
I won’t reproduce the full road test here on the blog. If you’re interested in reading all about it then you can head over to Element14. If you’re after a video summary of the features then here you go.
