Prism Sound dScope III
Prism Sound has announced that its dScope III test equipment will be used in conjunction with SSL’s X Logic series.
The analog and digital audio analyzer features digital interface test tools such as carrier waveform and eye-pattern display, jitter measurement and AES3/IEC60958 channel status generation and analysis as well as support for higher sampling rates. Its signal generator has two independent channels and generates in the analogue and digital domains simultaneously. As well as standard waveforms, the generator can source arbitrary waveforms (from wavetable files or VBScripts) and synchronous multi-tones.
In the signal analyzer, two-channel level, frequency and phase measurements are continuously available from either domain, as well as a two-channel continuous-time measurement function and up to 40 two-channel FFT-derived measurements. Continuous FFTs may be performed at up to 256k point resolution using 80-bit floating point precision. Measurement accuracy, especially of small residuals in the presence of large signals, is uniquely maintained.
Carrier degradation and analysis capabilities include jitter, carrier amplitude, rise/fall times, sampling-rate deviation and auxiliary data (channel status, validity etc.).
Graphical traces types include 'scope, FFT, sweep, analyzer residual and FFT of analyzer residual (all for both channels simultaneously) plus carrier eye diagram. Sweeps can be made of up to four parameters simultaneously (including carrier parameters).
