Where art thou?
This time I have discovered issues that are trigger-related, but more suitably filed under “general displaying issues”. Still using the “1.01.01.18R2” firmware.
Just have a look at the video. No more words…
This DSO has been on the market for at least 2 year now. I wonder why it still has these issues – or how it passed inspections.
There are a couple of reasons that may explain some of it:
a) nobody bought one, therefore no feedback.
b) people just don’t complain.
c) people only use it for the most basic stuff and simply don’t notice.
d) the number of complaints haven’t reached a certain threshold for Lecroy to recognize it as a “Great disturbance in the force”.
I’m starting to wonder if all “low-end” scopes of the big players out there (Tektronix, Agilent, Lecory) are prone to these BUGs. They certainly share a good deal of the hardware / design. Using a well-known design / firmware from another company is not necessarily a bad thing – IF it works and has been tested thoroughly.
Most (if not all) of the issues I’ve discovered so far should have been noticed and fixed before this thing was released into the wild. All of them are apparent in normal use.
Do they still beta-test new hardware nowadays?
