University of Sydney uses R&S RTB2000 and R&S RTM3000 oscilloscopes from Rohde & Schwarz in their labs

The School of Physics at the University of Sydney recently replaced their existing oscilloscopes with R&S RTB2000 and R&S RTM3000 oscilloscopes from Rohde & Schwarz.

The combination of state-of-the-art technology with ease-of-use in Rohde & Schwarz oscilloscopes made it the perfect choice for the School of Physics at the University of Sydney when they were reviewing and upgrading the assets in their labs. The labs have 95 units of R&S RTB2000 oscilloscopes and 3 units of R&S RTM3000 oscilloscopes for their students. With the R&S RTB2000, the lab not only gets an oscilloscope but also logic and protocol analyzer, waveform and pattern generator and digital voltmeter. Its 8-in-1 integration saves both space and costs for the school.

“It is important to equip our labs with instruments that offer precision measurement, modern interface and technology, diverse functionalities and smart operating concept – all in a small footprint. The oscilloscopes from Rohde & Schwarz are intuitive and easy to use, so they are the perfect tool to teach our students how to measure with an oscilloscope and complete their laboratory work without worrying about the functionality,” said Peter Verwayen, Laboratory Manager at The University of Sydney. “Moreover, knowing that there is a strong local team of technically competent post-sales and service personnel gives us the confidence and a peace of mind.”

The R&S RTB2000 is operated like a smartphone and is the only oscilloscope in this class to offer the highest resolution of a 10-bit vertical resolution. The 10.1” capacitive touchscreen allows user to conveniently zoom in and out to see the signals in details. Reports can be efficiently created with the handy and flexible screen annotation tool. With the 10-bit A/D converter, waveforms are sharper and it can capture signals more precisely and make measurements accurately.

In the university syllabus, students are taught to understand time and frequency domain signals. The FFT function of R&S RTB2000 can be activated easily and it can transform the signals in real time, much faster than other instruments of the same class. The ease-of-use of FFT with the similarity to spectrum analyzer control, allowing automated adjustment of time domain capture to match the FFT requirement, help students to understand the correlation of time domain samples and how they are mapped into respective frequency component bins. It is also used in labs for topics like mixers concepts and filters.

In order to help students learn the basic of signal processing, a special education mode is introduced which limits the ability to use automatic measurements and autoset that are found in all modern test equipment. This challenges the student to locate and measure the signal in a manual way, enhancing their understanding of how the instrument works.

Bringing ideas to life – our educational resources

Rohde & Schwarz continues to develop its partnerships with universities worldwide to make sure that the next generation of engineers have the support and state-of-the-art instruments they require to optimize the present and shape the future. In addition to test equipment, Rohde & Schwarz provides literature, offers expert guest lectures, as well as seminars and training courses for academics and students, and also sponsors student competitions with test equipment and awards.
