DLM4000 MIXED SIGNAL OSCILLOSCOPE
The DLM4000 is a unique to the industry eight-channel mixed-signal oscilloscope suitable to test and debugging applications in the embedded systems, power electronics, mechatronics, and automotive sectors. Available in both 350 MHz and 500 MHz models, the 2.5 GSa/sec DLM4000 features eight analog input channels. The eighth input channel features Flex MSO which converts to a 8-bit logic analyzer at the push of a button; add sixteen additional logic analyzer inputs as an option, for 24-bit logic analysis. Advanced measurement and analysis features such as power analysis and serial-bus analysis, digital filtering, user-defined math, and super-long record lengths (up to 250 Mega Points) make the DLM4000 a super powerful engineering tool. High-resolution 12.1-inch LCD display, compact landscape format, ergonomic and friendly user-interface make it easy to use.

Motor control & inverter circuit development
Key to efficient and reliable high-performance electric motors is the modern inverter design, or ‘Intelligent Power Module’. Multi-channel, high-speed waveform measurement is an absolute necessity. Four channels are simply not enough. Boasting eight true analog inputs, the DLM4000 empowers today’s engineer with a convenient and comprehensive measurement system.
Limitation of 4 ch scope: Whole-system measurement is impossible with a four-channel scope; the real difficulty is measuring the timing between IGBT gate signals within the inverter. Voltage and current measurements between 3 phases and the IO of the motor driver IC is a very challenging test with a four-channel scope. The truly practical solution is an eight-channel MSO.
Electronic control unit & mechatronic test Numerous I/O analog, digital, and serial-bus waveforms surrounding the Electronic Control Unit (ECU) must be measured. The DLM4000 offers ample channel-count and architecture to monitor eight analog channels and up to 24-bits of logic input while simultaneously performing protocol analysis such as UART, I²C, SPI, CAN, CAN FD, LIN and FlexRay. The DLM4000 can speed up the R&D process when four channels are not enough.
Limitation of 4 ch MSO: The additional logic inputs of a four-channel MSO mixed-signal oscilloscope provides enough channels, but this method has a blind-spot. Digital waveform analysis using logic inputs alone cannot reveal anomalies such as voltage drift, noise, distortion or ringing, and measure risefall times. ECU testing requires stringent examination of all digital waveforms- and analog input channels are the best tool for the job.
When just a specific event or abnormal waveform needs to be captured, the flexible and reliable triggering of the DLM4000 is the solution. In addition to basic trigger functions such as Edge, State, and Pulse Width- Advanced trigger types are provided, including Edge OR between multiple channels, Serial Bus trigger in which A combination of two bus signals is possible, or an A and B combination of different trigger types.
