250M memory depth

A sufficient memory depth enables the maximum waveform sampling rate to be achieved, so users can observe a more authentic and delicate waveform. However, if the memory depth is only 1Mpts or less, the oscilloscope will be forced to reduce the sampling rate when observing the waveform with a longer duration. The number of sampling points is not sufficient, so the waveform shown by the oscilloscope will be severely distorted or even waveform aliasing may occur, thereby misleading users’ measurements and analysis.

The ZDS2024 oscilloscope innovatively applies DDR3 storage technology to reach a maximum memory depth of 250M with the help of large-scale FPGA devices, hardware acceleration, and simultaneous multithreading processing. Users will not lose waveform details when observing long-duration waveforms.

25 kinds of protocol decoding

When debugging protocol signals, users will not only observe protocol waveforms, but also decode waveforms to corresponding data. However, the protocol decoding function of different brands of the oscilloscope has only been an optional configuration at an additional cost. Moreover, only manufacturers of very few brands provide this service.

The ZDS2024 Plus oscilloscope is unprecedentedly equipped with 25 kinds of protocol decoding for free, including CAN, LIN, I2C, SPI, UART, USB, PS/2, DALI, Wiegand, 1-Wire, DS18B20, HDQ, SD_SPI, SD_SD, IrDA, Manchester, DiffManche, Miller, DHT11, SHT11, NEC, RC5, RC6 and FlexRay. In addition, the ZDS2024 Plus becomes the world’s exclusive oscilloscope to be equipped with free CAN FD protocol decoding, truly defining the 200M oscilloscope yet again.

330,000 wfms/s waveform capture rate

Due to the limitations of the waveform synthesizer’s real-time processing capacity and waveform memory throughput bandwidth, the waveform capture rate of the 2000 series oscilloscope is generally very low. In addition, there is much dead time when observing the waveform. Therefore, users will miss many waveform details, substantially reducing their working efficiency.

The research and development group of the ZDS2024 oscilloscope uses a large-scale FPGA, solves various technical difficulties, and tries different realization approaches for each line of code to seek the best results. From 75K in the beginning to 150K, 260K, and even 330K, the group members continuously beat their own records while improving. Higher waveform capture rate enables users to quickly find abnormal signals and greatly improve working efficiency.

Mask Trigger

Engineers may often come across some signals that are hard to capture when debugging the product. Are we able to capture it with an easy and simple method even without any knowledge of the signal’s characteristics? Based on the powerful trigger function of the oscilloscope, the research and development group innovatively adds a mask trigger function that is able to isolate any regular abnormal signals with a touch filtration theory. This makes testing simple and fun.

4Mpts FFT analysis

The majority of 2000 series oscilloscopes on the market can only support the FFT analysis of 8K sample points at most. If the sampling rate is 1G, the frequency resolution is only 125 KHz; therefore, in most cases, it is impossible to accurately judge the spectral distribution of signals. The ZDS2024 oscilloscope eliminates the simple function parcel. It applies a professional processing chip internally, breaks through technical barriers, and upgrades the number of FFT analysis points to 4M sample points. Its frequency resolution can be accurate to 250 Hz under the same sampling rate of 1G, and it is able to accurately analyze the source of interference in circuits as to greatly improve the practical value of the oscilloscope’s FFT.

The 4Mpts FFT analysis function symbolizes a breakthrough in quantity and a leap in quality.

Supports automatic measurement of 51 parameters

It is not enough to analyze a waveform only by its visual form. Only by precisely quantifying waveform indicators can users thoroughly understand the nature of waveform abnormality. However, limited by architecture and the chip, the parameter measurements of most oscilloscopes is done by sample points based on sampling results. Regardless of how many signal periods appear on the screen, only one periodic signal of each screen is taken for statistical measurement, which directly leads to a severely distorted result.

To realize true parameter measurement statistics, we apply the FPGA for all hardware acceleration to calculate the maximum value, minimum value, average value, and standard deviation of each indicator by measuring each periodic signal on the screen, thus realizing the true parameter measurement function. The automatic measurement of 51 parameters is supported.

Waveform search function

When debugging signal waveforms, we need to know whether the signal is abnormal. If so, then what about is the frequency of occurrence for an abnormal signal? Is it periodic?

To figure out these problems, we generally need to record a waveform for a long time and then determine the location where the abnormal waveform occurred based on such a big waveform database. The ZDS2024 oscilloscope is able to quickly locate a signal of interest among hundreds of thousands of waveforms by relying on its advantages of mass storage and hardware acceleration. Whenever a waveform signal occurs on the current screen in accordance with search criteria, the system will automatically mark its corresponding position; therefore, the abnormal signal has no place to hide.

7 kinds of one-key operations

The third oscilloscope was developed in October 2012. In the course of the trial, users found it very complicated to store waveforms on USB disks. The research staff said that other brands of oscilloscopes have done it the same way. Mr. Zhou Ligong felt disappointed and said, “If we copy others, there will be only one road to us, the road to extinction. To win, we have no choice but to be disruptive. We must realize a one-key storage somehow.” He postponed the release of the oscilloscope resolutely to improve the user experience. Finally, the ZDS2024 oscilloscope brings seven (7) kinds of one-key operations together, all of which are 80% of the functions used by 80% of the users in 80% of the time. Featuring coherent functions that are easy to identify and one-key operations, testing efficiency is greatly improved.

Quick Boot

The boot time of oscilloscope is almost 30s or even more than 1 minute. It is too long for Field Test Engineers so that they probably missed some fleeting abnormal signals, while almost all of oscilloscope manufactures turned a blind eye to it. However, driven by the larruping design concept of ZHIYUAN Electronics, ZDS2024 oscilloscope begin to run as soon as the power switch is pressed. The whole boot process only takes about 10s, which beats other brands of oscilloscopes. It is like what Mr. Zhou ligong said that our customers may feel an ultimate experience from the moment that they press the power switch.

Supports WeChat and 100 episodes of videos on practical operations

ZHIYUAN Electronics always believes that good products come from customers and ultimately serve customers. A closed loop must be formed between product and customer. We believe that the sale is definitely not the end, and we consider how to solve problems through dialogue with customers. We also consider how to receive feedback from customers in the most direct way and then give a response.

To respond to customers faster, a chat club for oscilloscope users has been created under the leadership of Mr. Zhou Ligong. Therefore, the oscilloscope group can give a prompt response for any problems raised by users. In addition, the group regularly produces videos concerning the usage of our products, tests problems of users, and offers relevant solutions, which not only allows users to know principle of testing problems, but also enables them to see the process of solving problems and relevant procedures.
