Most Comprehensive Serial Data Analysis

WaveRunner 6 Zi offers the most tools for serial data analysis. With over 17 trigger, decode, and compliance solutions, WaveRunner 6 Zi can address problems with unique, powerful views and automated tools. The unique measurement toolset, ProtoSync, combines the oscilloscope view with a simultaneous view of data link layer decodes on the same instrument.

Excellent Signal Fidelity

The WaveRunner 6 Zi oscilloscope family features a pristine signal path that offers unmatched signal fidelity with low noise. This performance is augmented by a huge offset and timebase delay adjustment to allow easy signal and amplifier performance assessment and zooming on vertical and horizontal signal characteristics.

A New Way to Navigate and View

The WavePilot control area provides convenient control of Cursors, Decode, WaveScan, History, LabNotebook, and Spectrum by their respective function buttons on the front panel.

The SuperKnob is a joystick-like knob in the center of the WavePilot control area used to easily navigate through tables, zoom and position waveforms, and quickly document and annotate your setups.

Simply slide the button on the left side of the display and rotate upwards 90º. The display will automatically change from landscape to portrait mode. The display will also pivot upwards and downwards to optimize viewing angle.

More Trigger Capability Isolates More Problems More Quickly

A powerful combination of high bandwidth edge and 10 different SMART triggers, four stage cascade triggering, measurement trigger, and TriggerScan are all standard and allow you to isolate the problem quickly and begin focus on the cause. The measurement trigger offers a powerful option to qualify a trigger event based on a qualified measurement with great resolution. A high-speed serial trigger enables triggering on up to 3 Gb/s serial patterns of up to 80-bits in length. A full range of serial triggers (I2C, SPI, UART, RS-232, Audio (I2S, LJ, RJ, TDM), CAN, LIN, FlexRay, MIL-STD-1553, SATA, 8b/10b, USB2 and many others) are also available.

Rotating Display

The 12.1" high resolution WXGA wide screen is designed to provide the best view of any signal type on the display.

The widescreen is ideal for a variety of signals where long records are required and zooming or scrolling results in a large block of data.

Rotate the screen 90° degrees to optimize the display for viewing digital signals, jitter tracks, eye diagrams, and frequency plots. The screen image will adjust automatically when rotated. Tilt the display up or down in either orientation to minimize reflections or glare.
