Key facts

  • Universal decoding for 8b10b based buses up to 6.25 Gbit/s
  • Bus setup in seconds with the app cockpit
  • Telegram display as color-coded bus signals and in decode table
  • On-screen serial decoding is time-correlated with the waveform
  • Powerful search and navigate capability
  • R&S oscilloscopes | Engineered for multi-domain challenges

Oscilloscope software

The R&S®RTO oscilloscopes supports decoding of serial interface with 8b10b based protocols. You can set up decoding in seconds. For detailed analysis, results can be viewed as color-coded telegrams and/or in a table. Errors are identified efficently and reliably.

Features & benefits

Fast bus setup

Bus setup in seconds with the app cockpit

The configuration for any given protocol is accomplished in just a few steps starting from the app cockpit. Once the bus to decode has been chosen, the connected channels have been selected and the correct levels have been set, decoding begins automatically.

Color coded telegram display

Telegram display as color coded bus signals and in decode table

You can analyze the decoded bus frames with a color coded data overlay over the bus signal. Address and data content can be displayed in hex format. You always have the best overview with the flexible screen setup. Additionally, the telegrams can be displayed in a concise table.

Decoded frames are color coded

Search and navigate in recorded acquisitions

Powerful search and navigate capability

Comprehensive search functions simplify the analysis of long signal sequences. You can search for waveforms based on different criteria, such as signal faults or protocol content. All detected events are shown in a table with timestamps. The individual events can be examined in a zoom window with a simple navigation between events.
