High Definition Oscilloscopes

High Definition Oscilloscopes (HDO) use HD4096 Technology to provide 12 bits of resolution all the time from 200 MHz up to 8 GHz.

  • No tradeoff of resolution, sample rate, bandwidth
  • Clean, crisp waveforms
  • More signal details
  • Unmatched measurement precision

Once you use a Teledyne LeCroy HDO, you’ll never want to go back.

HD4096 Technology
12 bits all the time

Teledyne LeCroy High Definition Oscilloscopes use a systems design approach to achieve high resolution and low noise all the time. Other manufacturers use software post-processing, a single high-resolution component, or a combination of both with reduced overall performance. Only Teledyne LeCroy gives you 12 bits all the time.

HD4096 Technology
Systems Approach

HD4096 High Definition Technology consists of high sample rate 12-bit ADCs, high signal-to-noise ratio amplifiers and a low-noise system architecture. This total system approach provides an ideal signal path to ensure that signal details are delivered accurately to the oscilloscope display.

Clean, Crisp Waveforms

Waveforms captured and displayed on oscilloscopes with HD4096 technology are cleaner and crisper.

More Signal Details

Signal details often lost in the noise are clearly visible and easy to distinguish.

Unmatched Precision

HD4096 enables oscilloscopes to deliver unmatched measurement precision for improved debug and analysis.

The 4096 discrete vertical levels reduce the quantization error compared to 256 vertical levels.
This improves the accuracy and precision of the signal capture and increases measurement confidence.
