The FemtoScope 1000, 2000 and 3000 series are portable and low cost digital storage oscilloscopes having bandwidth up to 5 or up to 16 GHz. These oscilloscopes are designed for engineers working both in research laboratories and in production workshops, and who, above all, need characteristics associated with flexible measurements of wide-bandwidth single-shot or repetitive signals.

Wide-Bandwidth Oscilloscopes for precise measurement and analysis

More recently, if you needed an oscilloscope with a bandwidth of more than 5 GHz, you had to accept the need for significant financial costs. The FemtoScope models set a new price/performance ratio standard for gigahertz frequency USB oscilloscopes.

These single-, dual- or four-channel instruments, having a bandwidth of 5 or 16 GHz and triggering over the entire frequency range, provide the acquisition, display, measurement and analysis of complex waveforms in the range from picoseconds to hundreds of seconds.

Being a direct alternative to traditional benchtop oscilloscopes, these instruments are portable, and maybe even miniature, and, what is extremely important, they have an incomparably lower cost. Economical prices make the FemtoScope Series preferred for teaching basic scientific and engineering measurements at lab stations in schools and universities. Features normally only found on much higher priced scopes equip the FemtoScope Series to be a powerful choice for R&D applications.

The FemtoScope USB oscilloscopes utilize modern hardware to perform many of the functions that traditional digitizers do with software on the CPU. Built as a single-board oscilloscope, they are controlled from a computer via USB interface. Acquisition Board includes ultra-wideband track-and-hold amplifiers, 12-bit ADCs with 500 MSa/s sampling rate, high-speed trigger circuity and timing interpolator with sub-picosecond resolution. A state-of-the-art microprocessor, FPGA and precision clock oscillator provide structure flexibility, fast acquisition speed and effective interaction with PC.

Bandwidth and transient response

The FemtoScope 1000/2000/3000 series USB oscilloscopes have one, two or four input channels up to 5 or 16 GHz with market-leading ADC, timing and display resolutions for accurately measuring and visualizing high-speed analog and data signals. They are ideal for capturing pulse and step transitions down to 70 or 22 ps, impulses down to 140 or 45 ps and clocks and data eyes to 5 or 11.3 Gb/s. Most high-bandwidth applications involve repetitive signals or clock-related data streams that can be readily analyzed with these oscilloscopes by equivalent-time sampling.
Figure on the right shows frequency response of twelve channels (six oscilloscope) measured on the FemtoScope 2162.

 

The other figure on the right shows transient response of the FemtoScope 2162 tested with Keysight N2806A Calibration Generator. Total measured fall time is 23.71 ps, rms jitter is 1.256 ps, and negative overshot is 5.495%

The heart of each of the channel is a wide-bandwidth track-and-hold amplifier, which stores the analog voltage at the channel input at a time determined by the arrival of a 500-MHz sampling pulse. The inputs include wide-bandwidth symmetrical resistive voltage divider. One half of the signal goes to the THA, the other to the trigger comparator. The input impedance of the channel is (50 ± 1.5) Ohms. With a maximum permissible input voltage of ±2 V, the dynamic range of the input signals is ±1 V.

 

User-selectable hardware bandwidth-limiting reduces vertical noise. More bandwidth enhances quality of your measurements except when you want to limit noise level coming from additional bandwidth. However wide bandwidth may not be the best solution when you are making low-noise measurements as the additional bandwidth captures additional high-frequency noise along with high-frequency signal content.
All four models of oscilloscopes provide two bandwidth modes full bandwidth or low bandwidth 450 MHz.. Their transient response characteristics are shown in figures on the right.

 

Vertical channels and probes

Providing up to 12 bits of vertical resolution the FemtoScope allow to control vertical sensitivity between 10 mV/div and 250 mV/div. Full scale is defined as 8 vertical divisions, and further zooming may increase sensitivity in 100 times. With ±1.5% DC gain accuracy and ±1 V DC offset the scopes provide wide input dynamic range between -1 V and +1 V.

Figure on the right shows 1.9 V amplitude pulse symmetrical to zero. With rise time faster than 10 ns it has very small ringing within ±1 %.
With 50 Ω channel input impedance oscilloscopes used standard SMA female connector providing ±2 V (DC + peak AC) maximum input voltage.
You can use wide range of high-bandwidth low-impedance probes. The PicoConnect 900 family of high performance, ultra-low capacitance passive probes tailored to low invasive probing of high speed data lines out to 18 Gb/s (9 GHz). They are ideal companions for the FemtoScope Series, allowing cost-effective fingertip browsing of fast signals.

Two series are available: RF, microwave and pulse probes for broadband signals up to 5 GHz (10 Gb/s), and Gigabit probes for data streams such as USB 2, HDMI 1, Ethernet, PCIe and SATA up to 9 GHz (18 Gb/s).

 

Acquisition and time base

The FemtoScope oscilloscopes used real-time, equivalent-time and roll sampling modes.
Real-time sampling mode is designed with a high enough sampling rate to capture a transient, non-repetitive signal with the instrument’s specified analog bandwidth up to 250 MHz. According to Nyquist’s sampling theorem, for accurate capture and display of the signal the scope’s sampling rate must be at least twice the signal bandwidth. Typical high-bandwidth real-time oscilloscopes exceed this sampling rate by perhaps a factor of two, achieving up to four samples per cycle, or three samples in a minimum-width impulse.
Several acquisition modes let you choose how the oscilloscope will create points in the waveform record. Average calculates the average values for each record point over many waveform records. It is available in in real- and equivalent-time modes. Min-Max, Min and Max Envelope use the highest and lowest samples across several waveform records. These are also available in real- and equivalent-time modes. Peak Detect mode alternates between saving the highest sample in one acquisition interval and the lowest sample in the next acquisition interval. It is available in real-time only. High Resolution mode averages all samples taken during an acquisition interval to create a record point. This average results in a higher-resolution, lower-bandwidth waveform that works with real-time mode.
Time scale accuracy is critical, especially when you need deep-memory applications. In real-time acquisition the FemtoScope used internal precise 500 MHz clock that allows 10 ns/div faster time base scale.

Stability of real-time clock can be estimated as a „long-time” jitter. Figure on the right demonstrates 716 ps rms jitter measured at 100 ms horizontal delay. This is equivalent to 7.16 ppb real-time rms jitter.

For signals close to or above Nyquist limit, the FemtoScopes can be switched into equivalent-time sampling mode. In this mode the scope acquires as many samples as it can for each of many trigger events, each trigger contributing more and more samples and detail in a reconstructed waveform. Critical to alignment of these samples is a separate and precise measurement of time between each trigger and the next occurring sample clock. After a large number of trigger events the scope has enough samples to display the waveform with the desired time resolution. This is called the effective sampling resolution, which is many times higher than is possible in real-time mode. As an example 16-GHz FemtoScope models have 0.2 ps timing resolution that is equivalent to 5 TSa/s equivalent-time sampling rate. While 5-GHz models have 1 ps timing resolution that is equivalent to 1 TSa/s.
As this technique relies on a random relationship between trigger events and the sampling clock, it is more correctly called random equivalent-time sampling (or sometimes random interleaved sampling, RIS). It can be used for repetitive signals or for data pattern when you want to build an eye diagrams.
Equivalent-time sampling mode is the most actual for signal integrity measurements when you need very accurate results for such parameters as rise time or jitter. Precise picosecond time base and low intrinsic trigger jitter are necessary for ensuring high-speed test system reliability. With more lower the value, the better you’ll be able to characterize your device. Figure on the right shows how the FemtoScope 2162 measures accuracy of 10-GHz sinewave (period=100 ps) in equivalent time sampling with timing resolution of 0.2 ps.

1 GHz sinewave, TB accuracy

 

Zoom

Due to the long memory, the zoom allows you to view and compare up to four vertically and horizontally enlarged waveform sections simultaneously. At the same time, it is possible to shift any of zoomed zones both vertically and horizontally. The maximum vertical zoom is 100, and maximum horizontal zoom is 2048.

Figure on the right demonstrates 50 Mb/s data pattern acquired at 500 MSa/s sampling rate, 50 us/div time base scale and 250 KB record length (top). With 2K horizontal zoom you have possibility to measure the details of the waveform at 25 ns/div time base (bottom).

 

Trigger

All the models of the oscilloscopes provide full-function internal or external direct trigger up to 3 GHz. Input high-speed comparators allow you to adjust the trigger level and hysteresis, providing trigger sensitivity better than 50 mV. It is possible to select any of the trigger slope, as well as use the bi-slope trigger, which allows you to acquire the so-called pseudo-eye diagrams.
To expand the trigger frequency range up to 6 GHz, the FemtoScope models provides a frequency divider mode. This mode is especially relevant for measurements on such popular clock ranges as 3.25 GHz and 5 GHz.

Finally the FemtoScope 2162 and 3164 provide external prescaled trigger within full 16-GHz bandwidth. This trigger is realized by using high-frequency divider. The divider has fixed division factor of 8, as well as a small additive phase noise, which helps to achieve a low trigger jitter level. Figure on the right shows how the FemtoScope 2162 provides external prescaled trigger from 16 GHz sinewave with 1.37 ps rms jitter

 

Frequency counter

A dedicated frequency counter shows signal frequency (or period) at all times, regardless of measurement and time base settings, with a 7 digits resolution. For FemtoScope 2162 and 3164 maximum frequency is 16 GHz, for other four models it is 6 GHz.

Connectivity

Built-in USB device ports make PC connectivity easy for all models of the oscilloscopes. To provide a confident connectivity you need USB cable and external AC/DC power adapter (no power is used from the USB connection). Both parts are included in the oscilloscope kit.

The FemtoScope 3000 used both USB and LAN ports.

Portability

Weighing less than 370 g with a 1.9 sq.dm small footprint, the FemtoScope 1000 Series USB oscilloscopes can go anywhere with ease. You can just put it in the pocket of your jacket or in a small briefcase
New FemtoScope 2000 Series USB oscilloscopes deliver the performance and features you expect in a big scope. 16 GHz bandwidth on two channels, less than 2 ps rms jitter, 8 Gb/s clock recovery trigger are now available with portable enclosure having less than 790 g weight and 3.4 sq.dm small footprint.

Automatic measurements

The FemtoScope oscilloscopes provide a wide range of automatic measurements. More than 50 types of typical automatic oscilloscope measurements give you quick access to powerful functions. They are separated into four categories: amplitude, time, inter-channel and spectral measurements. Each of the measurement can be performed on live signals, saved waveforms or math functions.

Up to 10 measurements continuously updated with statistics. With statistical measurements, the oscilloscope measures the minimum, maximum, average and current values, as well as the standard deviation. Amplitude measurements include 17 parameters such as maximum, minimum, top, base, peak-peak, amplitude, middle, mean, cycle mean, rms, etc. 18 timing measurements include period, frequency, positive or negative pulse width, rise or fall time, duty cycle, etc. Inter-channel measurements are those performed on two signals. These include delay, phase, and gain. Spectral measurements are performed with FFT and include FFT magnitude and delta magnitude, total harmonic distortion, FFT frequency and delta frequency.

 

Histogram

Histograms are a statistical representation of a signal or its measurement results. The FemtoScope oscilloscopes use two types of histograms – vertical and horizontal. You can turn on the histogram to live signals, saved wave forms or math functions. Color grade display usually used with histogram on a waveform to add statistical view.
A vertical histogram is a probabilistic distribution of data collected about a signal along a vertical axis within a given histogram window. The information collected by such a histogram is used in the statistical analysis of the signal source. A vertical histogram is the most acceptable way to measure the noise characteristics of the wave forms. Noise is measured by sizing the histogram window to a narrow portion of time and observing a vertical histogram that measures the noise on an edge.

The parameters of both the vertical and horizontal histograms include the display scale in hits per division or dB per division, the offset in hits or dB (the number of hits or dB at the bottom of the display, as opposed to the center of the display), the total number of samples included in the histogram box, the number of wave forms that have contributed to the histogram, the number of hits in the histogram’s greatest peak, the width, median and mean of histogram, the standard deviation (σ) value of the histogram, also the percentage of points that are within ± 1σ, ± 2σ and ± 3σ of the mean value, etc.
The most common uses for horizontal histogram is measuring and characterizing timing jitter on displayed wave forms. Jitter is measured by sizing the histogram window to a narrow portion of voltage and observing a horizontal histogram that measures the jitter on an edge.

 

 

 

 

Eye Diagram

An eye diagram is an effective graphical method for evaluating the quality of a digital pattern. The results of its measurements are integral characteristics that describe the quality of the data channel and its ability to reproduce waveforms in undistorted form. Eye diagram helps to visualize signal integrity.
The relationship between the required oscilloscope bandwidth and the maximum data rate is known. To acquire the third harmonic of the stream, this ratio is 1.8, and for the fifth harmonic it is already 3.

Following these relationships 16-GHz Femtoscope will acquire the third harmonic of the 8.8 Gb/s data pattern and the fifth harmonic of the 5.3 Gb/s data pattern. At the same time 5-GHz Femtoscope will acquire the third harmonic of the 2.5 Gb/s data pattern and the fifth harmonic of the 1.7 Gb/s data pattern.
In general, eye diagrams are multilevel waveforms. The FemtoScopes measures two-level eye diagrams, such as NRZ (“No return to zero”) or RZ (“Return to zero”).

A high-quality eye diagram on the FemtoScope screen can be obtained in two ways. The first method is available when measuring data pattern is fed to the channel input, and it is also selected as the synchronization source. “Clock recovery” should be selected as the trigger style. With this method, the data rate range reaches 11.3 Gb/s for the FS2162 or FS3164, and 5 Gb/s for FS2052 or FS3054 models.
The second way is that the measuring data pattern is fed to the input of the channel, and the clock signal used as a trigger source is supplied to another channel or to the input of any of external trigger input. In principle, the second method does not need to use clock recovery style.

You can reach data rate up to 16 Gb/s for the FS2162 or FS3164, and 6 Gb/s for other four models. In order to make the correct measurements, the eye diagram is automatically autoscaled so that its vertical size is four large divisions, its horizontal size is six large divisions.

Eye-diagram measurements include such parameters as eye height, eye width, jitter rms, crossing percentage, Q factor, and duty-cycle distortion. Totally the FemtoScope can measure 27 vertical and 15 horizontal parameters of NRZ eye diagram, ten of them can be measured simultaneously.
The FemtoScope also allows you to measure 26 vertical and 17 horizontal parameters of the RZ eye diagram.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Mask Test

This test is used when it is necessary to control the shape of the measured waveform. Such waveforms can be quite complex as, and example, eye diagrams, and the number of possible waveform anomalies can be significant, which makes it difficult to perform standard measurements.
Mask test is widely used in production, in the control of quality, as well as in its testing for compliance with the requirements of standards. It is useful when you need to validate the stability of your electronic components and systems.
The test works on a good / bad basis.
Masks are geometric templates that show acceptable areas of the screen into which testing waveform should not fall. The FemtoScope uses three types of masks – standard, automatic and arbitrary.
The shape of standard masks depends on the type of standard and its data rate. The oscilloscopes will allow to analyze standard masks of the following international standards – SONET / SDH, Ethernet, RapidIO, G.984.2, Fiber Channel, ITU G.703, PCI Express, ANSI T1.102, InfiniBand, Serial ATA and XAUI. The shape of standard masks is usually a quad or hexagon. There are options for editing standard masks.
Depending on bandwidth specifications the FemtoScope provide up to 161 types of standard masks.
The principle of mask test is to determine if the waveform hits the mask, which violates the boundaries of the mask. Such a hit detects the exceeding the specified limits. This is fixed by changing the color of the waveform to red, which indicates an error in its shape.
Statistical test results include information about errors registered within standard templates, registered within additional margins, as well as full error information.

Other commonly used is an automask. An automatic mask is constructed according to the shape of tested waveform by adding to it certain preset tolerances vertically and horizontally.
Figure on the right shows an automatic mask constructed for a short 80-ps pulse. The mask consists of two patterns that seamlessly repeat the waveform on both sides of it. Figure also shows an automask test under the influence of noise. Acquired points on a pulse that go beyond tolerances are marked in red. In this example, horizontal tolerance limit is ±5 ps.
The last is arbitrary type of mask. It can be created directly by the user. Moreover, the number of templates can be up to eight, and their shape can be freely edited and saved.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Mathematics

Based on the data on acquired waveform, the FemtoScope allows the simultaneous calculation of up to four mathematical functions. Any mathematical function can be selected as an operator for one or two operands (sources). For example, inversion is a one-operand function, while addition is a two-operand function. Live waveforms, stored waveforms, or other mathematical functions can be selected as an operand.
The oscilloscopes used several categories of mathematical functions. These are arithmetic (12 functions), algebraic (14 functions), trigonometric (12 functions), spectral (6 functions), logical (7 functions), etc. It is also possible to use the formula editor.

Arithmetic functions include such functions as addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, absolute value, inversion, half-sum, scaling, etc. Algebraic functions include functions such as the exponent on the base e, 10 or on an arbitrary base, the logarithm, differentiation, integration, square, cube, square root, etc. Trigonometric functions include functions such as sine, cosine, tangent, cotangent, arcsine, arccosine, arctangent, arc tangent, hyperbolic tangent and hyperbolic cotangent.
FFT includes FFT magnitude and phase, the real and imaginary parts, also the inverse FFT. To compensate for the inherent limitations of the FFT, the operator must use the FFT windows. The type of window determines the bandwidth and slope of the corresponding mathematical filter. The oscilloscope supports six types of FFT windows. A rectangular FFT window does not change the signal data acquired in the time domain. Other five FFT windows have different filter characteristics in the time domain. They are Hamming window, Hanning window, flat window, Blackman-Harris window and Kaiser-Bessel window.
Logical functions include such functions as AND, AND-NOT, OR, OR-NOT, exclusive OR, exclusive OR-NOT, and also NOT.

In real time, when relation between sampling rate and the input frequency may significantly decrease, aliasing distortions occur. To avoid such distortions the oscilloscopes provide linear or Sin (x) / x interpolation functions. The Sin (x) / x interpolation function effectively restores the shape of the input signal.

The oscilloscopes used trend as a mathematical function that shows the nature of the variation in the signal parameter over time. The vertical axis shows the value of the selected parameter, and the horizontal axis shows the period of the signal for which this parameter was calculated.

Figure on the right is the example how the oscilloscope measures the period of the harmonic signal used to calibrate the sweep (purple). The trend function of the measured period (blue) is the mathematical function of this signal. Amplitude measurements of the trend function show the evolution of the change in the period value, i.e. show the magnitude of the non-linearity of the sweep at various horizontal points of the scale.
