High-Speed Acquisition and History Memory

Never miss the waveforms you want to capture.

  • High Acquisition Rate Unchanged Even When Displaying Logic Signals
    — During continuous measurement : Up to 25,000 times per second per channel
    In N Single mode : Up to 2.5 million times per second per channel
    Waveform update rate determines your probability of catching an intermittent glitch. On other mixed signal oscilloscopes, enabling the logic inputs severely impacts waveform update rate. The DL6000 maintains waveform update rates so you can detect abnormalities and transients in your analog or logic channels
  • High-speed acquisition means you can even capture instantly — On most oscilloscopes, to observe and analyze abnormalities such as unpredictable noise in detail, you have to devise clever trigger settings and re-measure the event. But with the DL6000 there is no need to re-measure the phenomena because once the event occurs, you can use the History Memory function to recall past waveforms that were originally displayed on screen.

Search & Zoom

— Quickly extract locations and abnormalities you wish to analyze from the acquired waveform data, and zoom in anywhere on waveform details.
The DL6000 series has enhanced Search and Zoom functions for searching for desired portions of waveform data and observing those waveforms in detail.

  • Search function for extracting abnormal phenomena The search function can search both analog and logic signals in History Memory (History Search)
  • Main Search Functions:
  • State search (Hi/Lo setting of each channel)
  • Serial pattern (I2C, SPI, CAN, general-use pattern) search
  • Polygon zone search
  • Waveform zone search
  • Parameter search (Measured parameters, FFT, etc.)
  • Display two zoom areas simultaneously
  • Because the DL6000 series lets you set zoom factors independently, you can display two zoomed waveform areas with different time axis scales at the same time.

Automated measurement of waveform parameters

  • Automated measurement of waveform parameters – Automatically display waveform values
  • Vertical waveform parameters such as amplitude, RMS
  • Time axis waveform parameters such as frequency, startup time
  • Delay time between specified signal edges
  • Automatic measurement of time axis waveform parameters is even possible on logic signals
  • Measurement Location Indicator indicates the measured location of a specified item
  • EDisplay the statistics on the automated measurement values of waveform parameters.
  • Normal statistical processing (Continuous)
  • Statistical processing for each period (Cycle)
  • Statistic
  • Measure a variety of parameters automatically Simply select the check boxes of parameters you wish to measure automatically in the setting screen’s parameter list.
    Simultaneously measure up to 16 parameters during acquisition. Additional measured values can be obtained in the analysis screen, or via PC communication.
  • You can measure waveform parameters of every cycle of a periodic waveform, and display results in lists and trend graphs. This is useful when evaluating period-by-period waveform fluctuations or loss in switching circuits.

Real Time Filter and High Resolution Mode

  • Input Filters — The DL6000 can restrict filter out unwanted high frequency noise and expose only the frequency bandwidth of the signals you are working with. Every analog channel offers independent, real-time bandwidth filters.
  • Analog Filters: 200MHz / 20MHz
  • Real-time Digital Filters: 8MHz / 4MHz / 2MHz / 1MHz 500kHz / 250kHz / 125kHz / 62.5kHz / 32kHz/ 16kHz / 8kHz
  • High Resolution Mode — Digital oscilloscopes have offer excellent time resolution. However, nearly all digital oscilloscopes provide only 8-bits of vertical (voltage) resolution. With Yokogawa’s High Resolution mode (real-time FIR filter), the oscilloscope will over sample and reconstruct a higher resolution signal with resolutions of up to 12 bits. Unlike averaging, High Resolution mode does not require a repetitive signal and works on single shot acquisitions.
  • Switching Waveform Measurement — When measuring SMPS waveforms, highly precise evaluation is impossible due to the insufficient dynamic range offered by 8-bit oscilloscopes. In such cases, you can use High Resolution mode to raise the precision of the waveform as well as of any computed results.

Serial bus analysis function

You can add on I2C, SPI, CAN, LIN, and other serial bus-specific trigger and analysis functions to your DL6000 series instrument. With these functions, you can trigger on specific serial bus parameters, and display the waveforms along with protocol analysis indicating the decoded serial bus information.

Moreover, the DL6000 series also comes with a "Serial Bus Auto-Setup" function to eliminate the tedious task of entering settings when starting the analysis.

  • Auto Setup Function for Serial Bus Analysis
  • Display signal waveforms, protocol information, and decode information in real time — The DL6000 serial bus analysis function simultaneously displays these three pieces of information on screen in real time. You can link the protocol information with the waveform information, select data in the protocol list, and automatically display the corresponding part of the analog waveform. Check the protocol list to see whether transferred information is correct. If not, you can determine whether there were any electrical problems at the waveform level. In operational analysis of systems that include serial busses, this can be very useful for sorting out hardware from software problems.
  • Analyzing two busses at once — Both analog and logic inputs can be used for serial bus analysis. Also, two different serial busses can be analyzed at the same time. For example, you can analyze a CAN and LIN bus simultaneously, or use an MSO to analyze two SPI busses at once.

Computation Functions

Digital filters, integrals, edge, rotary count, logic signal DA conversion computation, and FFT computation functions come standard. As these computations are hardware-based, results appear on screen quickly. Even computations that traditionally needed to be sent to a separate PC for processing can now be executed at high speed on the oscilloscope, thus greatly reducing the time and effort involved in computing and analyzing waveform data.

  • Digital Filter Computations — Digital filters, integrals, edge, rotary count, logic signal DA conversion computation, and FFT computation functions come standard. As these computations are hardware-based, results appear on screen quickly. Even computations that traditionally needed to be sent to a separate PC for processing can now be executed at high speed on the oscilloscope, thus greatly reducing the time and effort involved in computing and analyzing waveform data.
  • FFT Computation — You can perform FFT computation for analog signal waveforms or DA computation waveforms. This includes not only signal spectra, but also coherent and transfer functions.
  • User defined MATH — By combining basic math, trigonometric functions, differentials, digital filters,waveform parameters, and other values, you can define and execute equations and display the results along with the observed waveform.
  • Power Supply Analysis Function (optional) — By using combinations of differential and current probes, you can evaluate switching loss or analyze safe operating area (SOA) in power supply waveforms. Through statistical computation you can also measure multiple switching waveforms and display loss on a per-week basis in lists and trends, or display statistics on aggregate loss of up to 2000 switching waveforms stored in History Memory. If precise calculations are required, a correction function and High Resolution mode are available.
  • Cycle-by-cycle switching loss statistics and trend display — It can be extremely useful to check for fluctuations in switching frequency or voltage modulated by the commercial power input voltage on screen, at the same time as the waveform of that input voltage. Fluctuations in cycle-by-cycle loss, peak current, and other phenomena can be checked in lists and trend graphs thereby allowing you to identify excessive changes from power-ON to stable operation.
  • Waveform parameter measurement function for power supply analysis — Harmonic Analysis of Power Supply Current Based on EN61000-3-2 (IEC61000-3-2). Bar graphs and lists of harmonics can be displayed together with the appropriate limits for the device under test as defined by the IEC standard (supports device classes A-D). Any measured value which exceeds the limit is highlighted.
