    Design engineers working with high-speed serial data links are faced with enormous challenges to ensure that designs achieve targeted levels of performance. Recently, there has been a marked increase in design activity and interest in very high speed applications such as 100 Gb Ethernet. These applications are driving the development of oscilloscopes with increasingly higher bandwidths. An oscilloscope is a type of electronic test instrument used to measure the voltage and frequency of an electric signal. A good oscilloscope should simplify how you work and shorten the time it takes to find and debug problems. As the market demand for high-bandwith oscilloscopes continues to climb, LeCroy Corporation is well positioned to take advantage of this rapidly growing market.

    LeCroy Corporation (NASDAQ: LCRY) is currently trading at $5.34, up $.73 or 15.84%. This company is a worldwide leader in serial data test solutions, creating advanced instruments that drive product innovation by quickly measuring, analyzing, and verifying complex electronic signals. The company offers high-performance oscilloscopes, serial data analyzers, and global communications protocol test solutions used by design engineers in the computer, semiconductor and consumer electronics, data storage, automotive and industrial, and military and aerospace markets. LeCroy’s 45-year heritage of technical innovation is the foundation for its recognized leadership in “WaveShape Analysis”- capturing, viewing, and measuring the high-speed signals that drive today’s information and communications technologies.

    LeCroy’s WaveAce™ technology combines long memory, a color display, extensive measurement capabilities, advanced triggering and excellent connectivity to improve troubleshooting and shorten debug time. Specifically, LeCroy’s WaveMaster 8 Zi two-channel 30 GHz oscilloscopes are currently the highest bandwith solutions available in the market. These were the first oscilloscopes to provide high bandwith and the critical signal fidelity necessary for measurements that ensure high-speed designs can achieve their targeted levels of performance. Further solidifying its worthiness, the WaveMaster 830 Zi Oscilloscope won the 2010 Design Vision Award for Test and Measurement Equipment.

    In April, the company demonstrated its 6th generation of Digital Bandwith Interleave (DBI) technology in its design labs in New York. This latest generation technology will use new front-end chips, which provide lower noise and higher native bandwidths. The combination of silicon and improved DBI techniques can produce low-noise digital oscilloscopes with true analog bandwidths up to 60 GHz, doubling the capabilities of LeCroy’s current industry-leading bandwith performance of 30 GHz. The 1st products using this new technology will be announced before the end of calendar 2010 and will provide 4 simultaneous channels with 45GHz real-time bandwith. This technology will be vital as the next generation of research and development shifts to serial data links that require unprecedented speed and signal fidelity.
