The new DLM2000 Series - a new family of mixed-signal oscilloscopes

The new Yokogawa DLM2000 Series is a new family of mixed-signal oscilloscopes (MSOs) that represent a major step forward in terms of price/performance specification and ease of use.

With up to 500 MHz bandwidth and 2.5 GS/s sampling speed, the new oscilloscopes have the longest memory (up to 125 M points) and fastest update rate (up to 450,000 waveforms per second) in this class of instrument. In addition, the combination of flexible analogue and digital inputs, plus a large-screen display in a compact ergonomically styled body, makes the instruments exceptionally easy to use.    

‘Mixed-signal oscilloscopes represent the fastest-growing sector of the oscilloscope market, and this new range brings advanced MSO performance into the same affordable price bracket as portable general-purpose oscilloscopes’, comments Terry Marrinan, Sales & Marketing Director, Europe and Africa, for Yokogawa Test & Measurement Centre Europe: ‘We believe that the DLM2000’s combination of high performance, user-friendly features and affordability will make it a real winner.’

In addition to the key performance specifications, the DLM2000 Series features a number of advanced measurement and analysis features, including histogram and trending functions, up to 20,000 history memories, digital filtering, zoom windows, user-defined mathematics and serial bus analysis.

The DLM2000 Series consists of six models: three with two channels and three with four, each covering the bandwidths 200, 350 and 500 MHz, respectively. Mixed-signal oscilloscope operation is enabled on the 4-channel models by converting the fourth channel of analogue input to 8-bit logic, so that the instrument then functions as a 3-channel analogue plus 8-bit logic MSO. A high-resolution mode (up to 12-bit) is also available. This logic capability is complemented by the availability of new logic probes with individual bit threshold setting and 100 kilohm input impedance at 250 MHz.

 The new instruments feature a large (8.4 inch, 21.3 cm) high-resolution (XGA) display in a compact ‘portrait’ format package that occupies the size of a single A4 sheet of paper on the benchtop. The display is enhanced by a fine grid, high luminance and viewing angle, and on-screen markers with simultaneous display of cursors and automatic parameters. Other features include backlit buttons, additional knobs and jog shuttle, on-screen information in English, German, French, Italian and Spanish languages, two zoom windows with 80:20 or 50:50 zoom/main area split, and a choice of first-cycle or screen average mode for frequency measurement.

The combination of long memory and the history function, along with sophisticated trigger and search capabilities, means that the chances of missing elusive or intermittent waveforms are minimised. Using the /M2 option, up to 125 M points of storage capacity is available, allowing, for example, 10 kHz signals to be recorded for up to 5000 seconds. Even at a sampling rate of 1.25 GS/s, waveforms down to 0.1 sec can be captured.
With the history function, up to 20,000 previously captured waveforms can be saved in the acquisition memory, and any one or all of them can be displayed on screen with the ability to carry out cursor measurements and other analysis operations including FFT analysis and comprehensive user-defined maths. Waveforms can be displayed one at a time, in order, or automatically played back, paused, fast-forwarded or rewound.

The DLM2000 Series comes with a variety of easy-to-configure triggers combining analogue and logic inputs such as edge, enhanced and B-triggers. These include dedicated trigger functions for CAN, LIN, UART, I2C and SPI serial bus patterns as well as the ability to perform simultaneous analyses on two different buses operating at different speeds. This capability is enhanced by the extensive search facilities, allowing the user to look for specific data in the very long memory. The 4-channel models in the DLM2000 Series are also able to import the CAN DBC database and either trigger on, or decode, a physical value.

 Prices for the DLM2000 Series start at €3300.

Microsite DLM2000


Yokogawa's new DLM6000 series digital and mixed signal oscilloscopes boast fresh physical and on-screen interfaces, based on extensive market research and user feedback. It incorporates dedicated, backlit buttons for the most commonly accessed settings, and unique Yokogawa controls, like the 5-way selector button and spring loaded ‘jog shuttle' control.

The DLM6000 series oscilloscopes offer an extensive range of capabilities for waveform characterization, powerful tools for detecting glitches and anomalies, advanced signal enhancement and noise reduction technologies, and a range of options for serial bus analysis and power measurement. Select from models with four channels plus 16 or 32 bit logic inputs, and 500MHz, 1.0GHz, or 1.5GHz bandwidths.

High-Speed Acquisition and History Memory

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 severly impacts waveform update rate.  The DLM6000 maintains waveform update rates  so you can detect abnormalities and transients in your analog or logic channels.

 History Memory Function and High Speed Acquisition

    * Preserve up to 2000 captures of actual waveform data (not screen images)
    * After measurement has stopped, you can review past waveforms individually for detailed analysis.
    * Search and Zoom
    * Automated measurement of waveform parameters
    * Variety of computations

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/DLM6000 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/DLM6000 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.)


Automated measurement of waveform parameters

    * 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

    * Display the statistics on the automated measurement values of waveform parameters.
    * Normal statistical processing (Continuous)
    * Statistical processing for each period (Cycle)
    * Statistical processing of history waveforms (History)

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.
