New entry-level R&S HMO1002 mixed signal oscilloscope with exceptional features

Fanless operation, 1MPts of memory depth and a 1 GSa/s realtime sampling rate – these are the key features of the new R&S HMO1002 mixed signal oscilloscope from Rohde & Schwarz. With a vertical sensitivity of 1 mV/div and integrated 128 Kpoint FFT, the instrument offers features that are exceptional in the three-figure price segment. Embedded developers, service and maintenance technicians and users in the education sector can benefit from a comprehensive range of functions and many features that make everyday work more convenient.

R&S HMO1002 series mixed signal oscilloscopes developed by Rohde & Schwarz subsidiary HAMEG Instruments can be expanded at any time from 50 MHz to 70 MHz or even 100 MHz bandwidth by means of a simple upgrade option. HAMEG recently introduced this practical upgrade voucher for all of its instruments, and it is now also available for the R&S HMO1002. Moreover, the R&S HMO1002 includes mixed signal functionality. Measuring analog and digital signals simultaneously may not be anything unusual for an oscilloscope these days, but it is for a T&M instrument in the three figure price segment. The fanless design of the R&S HMO1002 is another special feature that ensures quiet operation and makes the instrument less susceptible to faults. The oscilloscope’s antiglare display takes up approximately 40 percent of the front-panel area and is easy to read. A logic probe can be connected to the front panel.

Pattern generator for embedded developers

An integrated pattern generator enables professional embedded developers to program protocol messages at up to 50 Mbit/s. This makes it possible, for example, to emulate circuit components that are still under development. Two kbit are available per channel for the signal patterns generated. The 4-bit counter output (adjustable up to 25 MHz) allows developers to use the pattern generator as a clock source. The instrument's high signal update rate of up to 10,000 wfs/s makes it possible to measure signal deviations with utmost precision. Its mask based pass/fail tests are other features appealing to developers.

Integrated digital voltmeter and component tester for service technicians

The three-digit digital voltmeter integrated into the R&S HMO1002 makes it possible to perform voltage measurements simultaneously on both analog channels, with two user-definable parameters each. The digital component tester helps service technicians check the functionality of capacitors, coils and semiconductor elements quickly and easily.

Special functions for the education sector

Teaching staff in the education sector will find the education mode in the R&S HMO1002 especially attractive. All of the fully automatic analysis tools that measure up to 28 parameters of a signal (QuickView, auto set, auto measurement) are switched off in this mode. Those who want to circumvent this function will not get far. The autoanalysis functions can be briefly switched on. However, the result memory clears each time screenshots are made in an effort to record them, leaving correctly implemented manual measurements as the only method of gaining access to screenshots. Correctly measured screenshots are also labeled, making them clearly recognizable as such to teaching staff.

The R&S HMO1002 mixed signal oscilloscopes expand the Value Instruments product range, a shared portfolio of high quality, attractively priced, universal T&M equipment from Rohde & Schwarz and its subsidiary HAMEG. For more information on Value Instruments, visit
