Teledyne LeCroy Introduces New LabMaster and WaveMaster Oscilloscopes for Testing Next-generation High-speed Electrical and Optical Links

Chestnut Ridge, NY, March 24, 2015 – Teledyne LeCroy today announced significant enhancements to the two highest performance oscilloscope product lines in the company's portfolio. From the introduction of the 30 GHz WaveMaster 8 Zi in 2009 to the 100 GHz LabMaster 10 Zi available today, these award-winning oscilloscope platforms have advanced Teledyne LeCroy's technology leadership by aggressively pushing real-time bandwidth and sample rate boundaries. The new LabMaster 10 Zi-A delivers improved performance in effective number of bits and baseline noise along with the industry leading jitter measurement floor. The new WaveMaster 8 Zi-B features increased sample rate, lower noise, enhanced processing capabilities and the latest version of Teledyne LeCroy's advanced oscilloscope user interface, MAUI. Both the LabMaster 10Zi-A with the flagship 100 GHz model and the WaveMaster 8 Zi-B are debuting at the Optical Fiber Communication (OFC) Conference in Los Angeles, California today.

LabMaster 10 Zi-A

The LabMaster 10 Zi-A series of real-time oscilloscopes builds on the success of the LabMaster 10 Zi oscilloscope series. The new models include significant improvements in signal fidelity and noise performance. With these enhancements, Teledyne LeCroy achieves industry leadership in jitter measurement floor, while maintaining leadership in bandwidth (100 GHz), sample rate (240 GS/s) and intrinsic (sample clock) jitter (50 fs). The LabMaster 10 Zi-A's exceptional modular ChannelSync architecture lets users build oscilloscopes with up to 80 channels, with better than 130 fs channel-to-channel jitter - no other oscilloscope can specify this level of performance. Serial data and optical modulation measurement toolkits, including SDAIII-CompleteLinQ and Optical-LinQ provide a rich set of tools for advanced analysis. A new PAM4 analysis package is the first software package available for real-time oscilloscope analysis of systems using PAM4 signaling. These analysis capabilities coupled with the performance enhancements make the LabMaster 10 Zi-A the most capable oscilloscope on the market for engineers designing next-generation high-speed electrical and optical links.

WaveMaster 8 Zi-B

The Teledyne LeCroy WaveMaster 8 Zi-A has established itself as a workhorse oscilloscope platform for the most demanding measurement challenges in high-speed electronics, optical communications, and scientific research. The updated WaveMaster 8 Zi-B enhances the capabilities of its predecessor with lower noise, higher sampling rates, deeper acquisition memory, and the next generation of Teledyne LeCroy's MAUI oscilloscope user interface. SDA 8 Zi-B Serial Data Analyzer models are specifically configured for testing today's high-speed electronics systems, with the most advanced eye and jitter analysis toolkit, additional acquisition memory, and a true hardware serial data trigger. When coupled with Teledyne LeCroy's comprehensive set of standard-specific analysis options, the SDA 8Zi-B is the ideal tool for testing, characterizing and debugging USB3.1, PCI Express, DDR memory, MIPI M-PHY and D-PHY, and many other applications.
