Designed with class-leading signal integrity and responsive ultra-deep memory, the Rohde & Schwarz RTA4000 brings the power of 10 to a new level.
A Rohde & Schwarz designed 10-bit ADC combined with class-leading low noise, memory depth and timebase accuracy gives you sharp waveforms, more accurate measurements and confidence when facing unexpected measurement challenges.
The 10-bit A/D converter yields up to a fourfold improvement over conventional 8-bit A/D converters. The class leading low noise allows users to take advantage of this extra vertical resolution. You get sharper waveforms with signal details that would have been hidden on other oscilloscopes in this class.
500 µV/div: full measurement bandwidth
The R&S RTA4000 oscilloscope offers outstanding sensitivity down to 500 µV/div. Traditional oscilloscopes can only reach this level of input sensitivity by employing software-based magnification of larger settings or by limiting the bandwidth. The R&S RTA4000 oscilloscope shows the signal’s real sampling points over the full measurement bandwidth – even at 500 µV/div.
Class-leading low noise
Higher resolution is only beneficial if the extra bits are not consumed by the noise of the oscilloscope. The R&S RTA4000 has class-leading low noise that allows you to take advantage of the extra bits of resolution and see signals that are hidden in the noise of other oscilloscopes.
Deep memory: standard 100 Msample per channel and 200 Msample interleaved
The R&S RTA4000 offers class-leading memory depth: 100 Msample per channel, 200 Msample in interleaved mode. This is up to 10 times more than similar oscilloscopes in the same instrument class. Maintaining a fast sample rate is directly tied to acquisition memory.
With its deep memory, the R&S RTA4000 captures longer periods of time at high sample rates, giving you extra insurance for unexpected project requirements.
Class-leading timebase accuracy
With a timebase accuracy of ±0.5 ppm, the R&S RTA4000 is 5 to 20 times better than other instruments in its class.
An excellent timebase is important to ensure accurate measurements over long time captures.
Grows with your needs
The R&S RTA4000 oscilloscopes flexibly adapt to needed project updates. You simply install the necessary software licenses, e.g. triggering and decoding of serial protocols.
The waveform and pattern generator and MSO capabilities 1) are built-in and just need to be activated. The bandwidth can be upgraded up to 1 GHz via keycode. All this makes retrofitting really easy.
The R&S RTA4000 can be directly connected to a PC via the built-in USB host and USB device ports. The USB host transfers screenshots and instrument settings to a USB stick. Media transfer protocol (MTP) implementation ensures seamless integration.
The USB device port and the LAN interface enable remote control. The built-in web server functionality allows you to control the oscilloscope and display your screen content to an audience. Data and programming interfaces are included, e.g. for seamless MATLAB® integration.
