R&S® RTB2000 Digital Oscilloscope
Power of ten (10-bit ADC, 10 Msample memory and 10.1" touchscreen) combined with smart operating concepts make the R&S®RTB2000 Digital Oscilloscopes the perfect tool for university laboratories, for troubleshooting embedded designs during development and for production and service departments.
Rohde & Schwarz stands for quality, precision and innovation in all fields of wireless communications. As an independent, family-owned company, Rohde & Schwarz finances its growth from its own funds. The company is not bound by short-term, quarterly results. It plans for the long term, which greatly benefits customers. Purchasing Rohde & Schwarz products is a safe investment for the future. The largest display (10.1") with the highest resolution of 1280 × 800 pixel in its class, a capacitive touchscreen to quickly navigate in pop-up menus and a touch function to easily adjust scaling, to zoom in or to move a waveform – works just like your smartphone.
The 10-bit A/D converter yields up to a four-fold improvement compared to conventional 8-bit A/D converters. You get sharper waveforms with more signal details.
10 Msample memory depth is available on each channel if all channels are active. When interleaved, 20 Msample are available. That is 10 times more than comparable oscilloscopes offer. This captures longer signal sequences for more analysis results.
The R&S®RTB2000 gives users more than just an oscilloscope. It also includes a logic analyzer, protocol analyzer, waveform and pattern generator and digital voltmeter. Dedicated operating modes for frequency analysis, mask tests and long data acquisitions are also integrated. Debugging all kinds of electronic systems is easy and efficient – and satisfies the all-important rule of investment protection at a very attractive price.

10-bit A/D converter: uncovers even small signal details
10-bit vertical resolution
The R&S®RTB2000 features a customized Rohde & Schwarz engineered 10-bit A/D converter that delivers a four-fold improvement compared to conventional 8-bit A/D converters.
The increased resolution results in sharper waveforms with more signal details that would otherwise be missed. One example is the characterization of switched-mode power supplies. The voltages across the switching device must be determined during the on/off times within the same acquisition. For precise measurements of small voltage components, a high resolution of more than 8-bit is essential.
1 mV/div: full measurement bandwidth and low noise
The R&S®RTB2000 oscilloscope offers an outstanding sensitivity down to 1 mV/div. Traditional oscilloscopes reach this level of input sensitivity only by employing software-based magnification or by limiting the bandwidth. The R&S®RTB2000 oscilloscope shows the signal’s real sampling points over the full measurement bandwidth – even at 1 mV/div. This ensures high measurement accuracy.
The accuracy of a signal displayed on the screen depends on the oscilloscope’s inherent noise. The R&S®RTB2000 oscilloscope precisely measures even at the smallest vertical resolution by using low-noise frontends and state-of-the-art A/D converters.
Capture more time at full bandwidth
10 Msample standard and 20 Msample interleaved
The R&S®RTB2000 offers a class-leading memory depth: 10 Msample per channel are available, even 20 Msample in interleaved mode. This is 10 times more than similar oscilloscopes in the same instrument class. The user captures longer acquisition sequences even at high sampling rates, e.g. when analyzing transients of switched-mode power supplies, and thus benefits from more detailed analysis results
Segmented memory: 160 Msample with history function
The R&S®RTB-K15 option with deep, segmented memory analyzes signal sequences over a long observation period. For example, protocol-based signals with communications gaps such as I 2 C or SPI can be captured over several seconds or minutes. Thanks to the variable segment size from 10 ksample to 10 Msample, the 160 Msample memory is optimally utilized; more than 13 000 cohesive individual recordings are possible.
In history mode, previous acquisitions to the maximum segmented memory depth of 160 Msample are available for further analysis. Mask tests, QuickMeas function and FFT, for example, can be used for further analysis.
Maintain fast sampling rates at all times
Signal faults and important events are detected better with an oscilloscope that offers a high sampling rate. Many applications require long acquisition cycles, for instance when analyzing serial protocols. With a sampling rate of up to 2.5 Gsample/s and a memory depth of up to 20 Msample, the R&S®RTB2000 oscilloscopes really excel here. They display signals accurately, right down to the details and even for long sequences.
10 to 100 times more memory depth compared to traditional oscilloscopes in the same instrument class
With a sampling rate of up to 2.5 Gsample/s and a memory depth of up to 20 Msample, the R&S®RTB2000 oscilloscope excels in its class. A waveform update rate of more than 50 000 waveforms/s ensures a responsive instrument that reliably catches signal faults. Included standard tools provide quick results, e.g. QuickMeas, mask tests, FFT, math, cursors and automatic measurements, including statistics.
The R&S®RTB-B1 option turns every R&S®RTB2000 into an intuitive-to-use MSO with 16 additional digital channels. The oscilloscope captures and analyzes signals from analog and digital components of an embedded design – synchronously and time-correlated to each other. For example, the delay between input and output of an A/D converter can conveniently be determined using the cursor measurements.
Protocols such as I 2 C, SPI and CAN/LIN frequently transfer control messages between integrated circuits. The R&S®RTB2000 has versatile options for protocol-specific triggering and decoding of serial interfaces. Selective acquisition and analysis of relevant events and data is possible. With the hardware-based implementation, smooth operation and a high update rate is ensured even for long acquisitions. This is advantageous, for example, to capture multiple packetized serial bus signals.
||Waveform and pattern generator
The integrated R&S®RTB-B6 waveform and pattern generator up to 50 Mbit/s is useful for educational purposes and for implementing prototype hardware. Apart from the common sine, square/pulse, ramp and noise waveforms, it outputs arbitrary waveforms and 4-bit signal patterns. Waveforms and patterns can be imported as CSV files or copied from oscilloscope waveforms. Before playing signals back, the user can preview them to quickly check signal correctness. Predefined patterns for e.g. I2C, SPI, UART and CAN/LIN can be used.
The R&S®RTB2000 features a three-digit voltmeter (DVM) and six-digit frequency counter on each channel for simultaneous measurements. Measurement functions include DC, AC+DCRMS and ACRMS – included in scope of delivery.
||Frequency analysis mode
Difficult-to-find faults often result from the interaction between time and frequency signals. The FFT function of the R&S®RTB2000 is activated with the push on a button and by just entering center frequency and span. Due to the high-performance FFT functionality of the R&S®RTB2000 oscilloscopes, signals can be analyzed with up to 128 kpoints. Other practical tools include cursor measurements and autoset in frequency domain.
||Mask test mode
Mask tests quickly reveal whether a specific signal lies within defined tolerance limits. By using statistical pass/fail evaluation, they assess quality and stability of a DUT. Signal anomalies and unexpected results are quickly identified. When the mask is violated, the measurement stops. Each violation can generate a pulse output at the AUX-OUT connector on the R&S®RTB2000. This pulse output can be used to trigger actions in the measurement setup.
||History and segmented memory mode
The R&S®RTB-K15 history function option increases the memory from 10 Msample to 160 Msample. Users scroll through past acquisitions and analyze the data using all of the oscilloscope tools, e.g. protocol decode and logic channels. In ultra-segmented mode, waveforms are seamlessly captured before visualization. Serial protocol and pulse sequences are recorded practically without interruptions.
