Key facts

  • Trigger on start, break, data and various error conditions
  • Telegram display as color-coded bus signals and in decode table
  • Supports decoding of up to 4 serial buses from analog or digital channel signals
  • On-screen serial decoding is time-correlated with the serial data waveform
  • Fastest UART and RS-232/RS-422/RS-485 eye-diagram mask testing with standard mask test functionality
  • R&S oscilloscopes | Engineered for multi-domain challenges

Brief description

All Rohde & Schwarz oscilloscopes support triggering and decoding of UART and of RS-232, RS-422 and RS-485 buses. You 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 using the hardware-accelerated trigger. You can trigger on start, break, data and various error conditions.

Features & benefits

Fast bus setup

Bus setup in seconds with the app cockpit

Starting from the app cockpit, it only takes a few steps to configure any given protocol. Once the bus to decode has been chosen, the connected channels selected and the correct levels 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 by overlaying the signal with color-coded data. Address and data content can be displayed in hex, bin or ASCII format. You always have the best overview with the flexible screen setup. The telegrams can also be displayed in a concise table.

Strong trigger capability

Strong trigger capability on start, break, data and various error conditions

The protocol-specific trigger lets you reliably isolate protocol events and errors. Thanks to high acquisition rates, Rohde & Schwarz oscilloscopes are ideal for finding errors quickly, allowing decoding of protocol-specific trigger results. The hardware-based triggering is available on specific protocol content, e.g. addresses, data and protocol errors.
