RS Scope Rider handheld oscilloscope

RS Scope Rider handheld oscilloscope
When debugging embedded devices in the lab or analyzing complex problems in the field, the R&S®Scope Rider offers the performance and capabilities of a lab oscilloscope as well as the form factor and ruggedness of a battery-operated handheld device. Isolated channels combined with 500 MHz bandwidth makes it a perfect choice for power electronics applications. An integrated multimeter (two-channel model) or a multimeter mode (four-channel model) make the instrument the perfect tool for troublesho

This guide provides an overview of product features and related technologies. In addition, it contains recommendations on best practices, tutorials for getting started, and troubleshooting information for common situations.

Technical data overview

  • Integrated multimeter or multimeter mode

Specifications without limits Represent warranted product performance for the specified parameter. These specifications are not specially marked and represent values with no or negligible deviations from the given value (e.g. dimensions or resolution of a setting parameter). Compliance is ensured by design.

Typical data (typ.)

Characterizes product performance by means of representative information for the given parameter. When marked with or as a range, it represents the performance met by approximately 80 % of the instruments at production time. Otherwise, it represents the mean value.

Nominal values (nom.)

Characterize product performance by means of a representative value for the given parameter (e.g. nominal impedance). In contrast to typical data, a statistical evaluation does not take place and the parameter is not tested during production.

Measured values (meas.)

Characterize expected product performance by means of measurement results gained from individual samples.


Represent limits of measurement uncertainty for a given measurand. Uncertainty is defined with a coverage factor of 2 and has been calculated in line with the rules of the Guide to the Expression of Uncertainty in Measurement (GUM), taking into account environmental conditions, aging, wear and tear. Device settings and GUI parameters are indicated as follows: “parameter: value”. Typical data as well as nominal and measured values are not warranted by Rohde & Schwarz.
