First R&S eight channel oscilloscope with digital triggering
Rohde & Schwarz has launched its first eight-channel oscilloscope with digital triggering on each channel and memory depth up to 1Gpoints.
The R&S MXO 5 is available with four or eight channels and used the MXO-EP processing ASIC technology developed by Rohde & Schwarz and introduced with the R&S MXO 4 last year. It is aimed a wide range of applications from power conversion to automotive and EMI analysis.
The MXO 5 enables 4.5 million acquisitions per second and 18 million waveforms per second across multiple channel to capture intricate signal details and infrequent events. There is digital triggering on all eight channels to isolate small signal anomalies with 45 000 FFTs per second provides spectrum signal viewing for EMI and harmonic testing.

The R&S MXO 5 series offers standard simultaneous acquisition memory of 500 Mpoints across all eight channels, twice that generally available. A memory extension option can double the recording length to 1 Gpoints for the most demanding applications. The memory depth is critical for a wide range of troubleshooting tasks, enabling the capture of extended periods of time and retaining accurate bandwidth information even with slower time base settings.
The digital trigger outperforms all other oscilloscope triggers with a remarkable sensitivity of 0.0001 div. The sensitivity helps precisely isolate small physical layer anomalies, even when large signals are present rather than requiring signal processing corrections to align analog path trigger events, resulting in a slower and noisier trigger performance.
The R&S MXO 5 is the first oscilloscope with 45 000 FFTs (Fast Fourier Transforms) per second for and can simultaneously display four different time-independent spectra on the 15.6″ full-HD capacitive touchscreen.
“Launching the R&S MXO 4 in 2022 introduced the next generation of oscilloscopes with unmatched performance and value,” said Philip Diegmann, Vice President of Oscilloscopes at Rohde & Schwarz “This oscilloscope series was meticulously designed by our dedicated development team to capture both the big picture and smallest details of electrical signals with unparalleled accuracy and speed. Evolved for more challenges, the scopes will speed up our customers’ understanding and testing of their electronic systems.”
The R&S MXO 5 oscilloscopes are available in four and eight-channel models with bandwidth ranges of 100 MHz, 200 MHz, 350 MHz, 500 MHz, 1 GHz, and 2 GHz. The eight-channel models start at €19 500 and upgrade options are available including 16 digital channels with a mixed-signal oscilloscope (MSO) option, an integrated dual-channel 100 MHz arbitrary generator, protocol decode and triggering options for industry-standard buses and a frequency response analyzer to enhance the capabilities of the instrument.
The R&S MXO 5 series oscilloscopes are now available from Rohde & Schwarz and selected distribution channel partners. Rohde & Schwarz will demonstrate the MXO 5 at productronica 2023 in Munich in hall A1.375 from November 14 to 17, 2023.
