Great value

High sensitivity, multifunctionality and a great price – that is what makes the R&S®RTC1000 oscilloscope so special. From embedded developers to service technicians to educators – the wide range of functions address a broad group of users. State-of-the-art, high-performance technology in a fan-less design meets the high requirements of today’s customers.

Top-class hardware based acquisition

For precise measurement results


With a sample rate of of up to 2 Gsample/s and a memory depth of up to 2 Msamples, the R&S RTC1000 oscilloscope excels in its class. A waveform update rate of more than 10,000 waveforms/s ensures a responsive instrument that reliably catches signal faults. Included tools provide quick results, e.g. QuickMeas, mask tests, FFT, math, cursors and automatic measurements (including statistics).

Versatile measurement functions

QuickView: key results at the push of a button


  • Wide selection of automatic measurement functions.
  • Mask test: a new mask can be easily created with just a few keystrokes
  • FFT: The easy way to analyze the signal spectrum

Logic analysis with the MSO option

Eight additional digital channels


The R&S RTC-B1 option turns every R&S RTC1000 into an intuitive-to-use MSO with eight additional digital channels. The oscilloscope captures and analyzes signals from analog and digital components in an embedded design – synchronously and time correlated to each other. For example, the delay between the input and output of an A/D converter can be conveniently determined using the cursor measurement.

Serial bus analysis

Hardware-based triggering and decoding


Protocols such as FC, SPI and CAN/LIN frequency transfer control messages between integrated circuits. The R&S RTC1000 has versatile options for protocol-specific triggering and decoding of serial interfaces. Selective acquisition and analysis of relevant events and data is possible. With the hardware-based implementation, smooth operation and high update rate are ensured even for long acquisitions. This is advantageous, for example, for capturing multiple packetized serial bus signals.

Digital voltmeter

Measure and display electrical potential


For simultaneous measurements, the R&S RTC1000 features a three-digit digital voltmeter (DVM) and six-digit frequency counter on each channel. Provided measurement functions include DC, AC+DC (RMS) and AC (RMS).

Waveform and pattern generator

Generate analog and digital stimuli


The integrated R&S RTC-B6 waveform and pattern generator up to 50 Mbit/s is useful for educational purposes and for implementing prototype hardware. In addition to common sine, square/pulse, ramp and noise waveforms, it outputs 4-bit patterns. Waveforms and patterns can be imported as CSV files or copied from oscilloscope waveforms. You can preview signals before playing them back to quickly check signal correctness. Predefined patterns, for e.g. SPI, UART and CAN/LIN are provided.
