To Enable the Analog Channel
MSO1000Z/DS1000Z provides 4 analog input channels (CH1-CH4). As the setting
methods of the vertical systems of the four channels are the same, this chapter takes
CH1 as an example to illustrate the setting method of the vertical system.
Connect a signal to the channel connector of CH1 and then press CH1 in the vertical
control area (VERTICAL) at the front panel to enable CH1. At this point, the channel
setting menu is displayed at the right side of the screen and the channel status label
at the bottom of the screen (as shown in the figure below) is highlighted. The
information displayed in the channel status label is related to the current channel
setting.
After the channel is turned on, modify the parameters such as the vertical scale,
horizontal time base, trigger mode and trigger level according to the input signal for
easy observation and measurement of the waveform.
Channel Coupling
The undesired signals can be filtered out by setting the coupling mode. For example,
the signal under test is a square waveform with DC offset.
 When the coupling mode is “DC”: the DC and AC components of the signal under
test can both pass the channel.
 When the coupling mode is “AC”: the DC components of the signal under test
are blocked.
 When the coupling mode is “GND”: the DC and AC components of the signal
under test are both blocked.
Press CH1  Coupling and use
to select the desired coupling mode (the
default is DC). The current coupling mode is displayed in the channel status label at
the bottom of the screen as shown in the figure below. You can also press Coupling
continuously to switch the coupling mode.

Bandwidth Limit
MSO1000Z/DS1000Z supports the bandwidth limit function which can reduce the
display noise. For example, the signal under test is a pulse with high frequency
oscillation.
 When the bandwidth limit is disabled, the high frequency components of the
signal under test can pass the channel.
 When limiting the bandwidth to 20 MHz, the high frequency components of the
signal under test that exceed 20 MHz are attenuated.
Press CH1, then press BW Limit continuously to switch the bandwidth limit state
(the default is OFF). When the bandwidth limit is enabled, the character “B” will be
displayed in the channel status label at the bottom of the screen.
Note: Bandwidth limit can reduce the noise as well as attenuate or eliminate the
high frequency components of the signal.

Vertical Scale
Vertical scale refers to the voltage value per grid in the vertical direction on the
screen and is usually expressed as V/div.
SCALE to adjust the vertical scale (clockwise
Press CH1 and rotate VERTICAL
to reduce the scale and counterclockwise to increase). The size of the displayed
waveform will be changed accordingly. The scale information (as shown in the figure
below) in the channel label at the bottom of the screen will change accordingly
during the adjustment. The adjustable range of the vertical scale is related to the
probe ratio currently set. By default, the probe ratio is 10X and the adjustable range
of the vertical scale is from 10 mV/div to 100 V/div.
The vertical scale can be adjusted in “Coarse” or “Fine” mode. Press CH1 
Volts/Div to switch the adjustment mode.
 Coarse adjustment (take counterclockwise as an example): set the vertical scale
in 1-2-5 step namely 10 mV/div, 20 mV/div, 50 mV/div, 100 mV/div…100 V/div.
 Fine adjustment: further adjust the vertical scale within a relatively smaller
range to improve vertical resolution. If the amplitude of the input waveform is a
little bit greater than the full scale under the current scale and the amplitude
would be a little bit lower if the next scale is used, fine adjustment can be used
to improve the amplitude of waveform display to view signal details.

Delay Calibration of the Analog Channel
When using an oscilloscope for actual measurement, the transmission delay of the
probe cable may bring relatively greater error (zero offset). MSO1000Z/DS1000Z
supports user to set a delay time to calibrate the zero offset of the corresponding
channel. Zero offset is defined as the offset of the crossing point of the waveform
and trigger level line relative to the trigger position, as shown in the figure below.
Figure 2-1 Zero Offset
Press CH1  Delay-Cal and use
to set the desired delay time. The range
available is from -100 ns to 100 ns. Pressing down the multifunction knob
will
reset the delay time to 0.00 s.
Note: This parameter is related to the instrument model and the current horizontal
time base setting. The larger the horizontal time base is, the larger the setting step
will be. Take MSO1104Z-S as an example. The step values under different horizontal
time base are as shown in the table below.

instrument enters slow sweep mode. For the details, please refer to the introduction
of slow sweep in “Roll Mode”.
XY Mode
In this mode, the oscilloscope changes the two channels from voltage-time display
mode to voltage-voltage display mode. The phase deviation between two signals
with the same frequency can be easily measured via Lissajous method. The figure

Chapter 3 To Set the Horizontal System
According to sinθ=A/B or C/D (wherein, θ is the phase deviation angle between
the two channels and the definitions of A, B, C and D are as shown in the figure
above), the phase deviation angle is obtained, that is:
θ=±arcsin (A/B) or ±arcsin( C/D)
If the principal axis of the ellipse is within quadrant I and III, the phase deviation
angle obtained should be within quadrant I and IV, namely within (0 to π/2) or (3π/2
to 2π). If the principal axis of the ellipse is within quadrant II and IV, the phase
deviation angle obtained should be within quadrant II and III, namely within (π/2 to
π) or (π to 3π/2).
The XY function can be used to measure the phase deviation occurred when the
signal under test passes through a circuit network. Connect the oscilloscope to the
circuit to monitor the input and output signals of the circuit.
Application example: measure the phase deviation of the input signals of two
channels.

Note:
 The maximum sample rate of XY mode is 500 MSa/s. Generally, longer sample
waveform can ensure better display effect of Lissajous figure. But due to the
limitation of the memory depth, you have to reduce the waveform sample rate
to acquire longer waveform (refer to the introduction in “Memory Depth”).
Therefore, during the measurement, reducing the sample rate properly can
acquire better display effect of Lissajous figure.
 When XY mode is enabled, “Delayed Sweep” will be disabled automatically.
 Press X-Y to select “CH1-CH2, CH1-CH3, CH1-CH4, CH2-CH3, CH2-CH4,
CH3-CH4”. After you choose any of the options, the instrument automatically
turns on the two corresponding channels and turns off the other two channels.
The X-axis tracks the voltage of the first channel in each option; the Y-axis
tracks the voltage of the second channel in each option.
 The following functions are not available in XY mode:
“Delayed Sweep”, “Vectors”, “Protocol Decoding”, “Acquisition Mode”,
“Pass/Fail Test”, “Waveform Record” “Digital Channel” and “To Set the
Persistence Time”.
Method 2: Use the shortcut measurement function
Please refer to “Phase 12 ” and “Phase 12 ” measurement functions of “Delay
and Phase” on page 6-23.
Roll Mode
In this mode, the waveform scrolls from right to left to update the display.
The horizontal position and trigger control of the waveform are not available. The
range of horizontal scale adjustment is from 200 ms to 50.0 s.
Note: When Roll mode is enabled, the waveform “horizontal position”, “Delayed
Sweep”, “Protocol Decoding”, “Pass/Fail Test”, “Waveform Record”, “To Set
the Persistence Time” and “To Trigger the Oscilloscope” are not available.
Slow Sweep
Slow sweep is similar to Roll mode. In YT mode, when the horizontal time base is
set to 200 ms/div or slower, the instrument enters “slow sweep” mode in which the
instrument first acquires the data at the left of the trigger point and then waits for a
trigger event. After the trigger occurs, the instrument continues to finish the
waveform at the right of the trigger point. When slow sweep mode is used to
observe low frequency signal, DC “Channel Coupling” mode is recommended.

Press Acquire  Mode at the front panel and use
to select the desired
acquisition mode (the default is normal), then press down the knob to select this
mode. You can also press Mode continuously to switch the acquisition mode.
Normal
In this mode, the oscilloscope samples the signal at equal time interval to rebuild the
waveform. For most of the waveforms, the best display effect can be obtained using
this mode.
Peak Detect
In this mode, the oscilloscope acquires the maximum and minimum values of the
signal within the sample interval to get the envelope of the signal or the narrow pulse
of the signal that might be lost. In this mode, signal confusion can be prevented but
the noise displayed would be larger.
In this mode, the oscilloscope can display all the pulses with pulse widths at least as
wide as the sample period.
Average
In this mode, the oscilloscope averages the waveforms from multiple samples to
reduce the random noise of the input signal and improve the vertical resolution.
Greater number of averages can lower the noise and increase the vertical resolution;
while at the same time, it will slow the response of the displayed waveform to the
waveform changes.
The available range of the number of averages is from 2 to 1024 and the default is 2.
When “Average” mode is selected, press Averages and use

Chapter 5 To Trigger the Oscilloscope
As for trigger, you set certain trigger condition according to the requirement and
when a waveform in the waveform stream meets this condition, the oscilloscope
captures this waveform as well as the neighbouring part and displays them on the
screen. For digital oscilloscope, it samples waveform continuously no matter whether
it is stably triggered, but only stable trigger can ensure stable display. The trigger
module ensures that every time base sweep or acquisition starts from the
user-defined trigger condition, namely every sweep is synchronous to the acquisition
and the waveforms acquired overlap to display stable waveform.
Trigger setting should be based on the features of the input signal, thus you need to
have some knowledge of the signal under test to quickly capture the desired
waveform. This oscilloscope provides abundant advanced trigger functions which can
help you to focus on the desired waveform details.

Trigger Mode
Trigger mode affects the way in which the oscilloscope searches for a trigger. The
following is the schematic diagram of the acquisition memory. As shown in the figure
below, the position of the trigger event is determined by the reference time point and
the delay setting.
Note: The acquisition memory of the oscilloscope is a cyclic buffer and the new data
would overwrite the old data until the acquisition finishes.

Pre-trigger/Delayed trigger:
Acquire data before/after the trigger event. The trigger position is usually at the
horizontal center of the screen. In full-screen display, six-grid pre-trigger and delayed
trigger information are displayed respectively. You can adjust the horizontal position
POSITION to view more pre-trigger
of the waveform through HORIZONTAL
information or delayed trigger information, through which the signal information
before/after the trigger (such as capture the glitch generated by the circuit and
analyze the pre-trigger data to find out the reasons for glitch) can be obtained.
Press MODE in the trigger control area (TRIGGER) at the front panel or press
MENU  Sweep to select the desired trigger mode. The corresponding status light
of the mode currently selected turns on.
Auto:
After this mode is selected, the oscilloscope starts searching for trigger signals that
meet the specified condition. If trigger signals that meets the specified condition are
found, “T’D” is displayed at the upper-left corner of the user interface and stable
waveform is displayed. Otherwise, “AUTO” is displayed and unstable waveform is
displayed.
Note: When the horizontal time base setting is 50 ms/div or greater, you can also
observe the input waveform without a trigger signal in this mode.
Normal:
After this mode is selected, the oscilloscope enters the wait-for-trigger state and
starts searching for trigger signals that meet the specified condition. If trigger signals
that meets the specified condition are found, “T’D” is displayed in the running status

Single:
When this mode is selected, the backlight of SINGLE turns on. The oscilloscope
enters the wait-for-trigger state and starts searching for trigger signals that meet the
specified condition. If trigger signals that meets the specified condition are found,
“T’D” is displayed in the running status bar and stable waveform is displayed. Then,
the oscilloscope stops sweeping, the backlight of RUN/STOP turns on and “STOP”
is displayed in the running status bar. Otherwise, “WAIT” is displayed in the running
status bar and no waveform is displayed.
Note: In this mode, pressing FORCE can generate a trigger signal forcefully.
Trigger Coupling
Trigger coupling decides which kind of components will be transmitted to the trigger
module. Please distinguish it from “Channel Coupling”.
 DC: allow DC and AC components into the trigger path.
 AC: block all the DC components and attenuate signals lower than 75 Hz.
 LF Reject: block the DC components and reject the low frequency components
(lower than 75 kHz).
 HF Reject: reject the high frequency components (higher than 75 kHz).

Trigger Holdoff
Trigger holdoff can be used to stably trigger complex waveforms (such as modulated
waveform). Holdoff time is the amount of time that the oscilloscope waits for
re-arming the trigger module after generating a correct trigger. The oscilloscope will
not trigger even if the trigger condition is met during the holdoff time and will only
re-arm the trigger module after the holdoff time expires.

time is from 16 ns to 10 s.
Note: Trigger holdoff is not available for video trigger, timeout trigger, setup/hold
trigger, Nth edge trigger, RS232 trigger, I2C trigger and SPI trigger.
Noise Rejection
Noise rejection can reject the high frequency noise in the signal and reduce the
possibility of miss-trigger of the oscilloscope.
Press MENU  Setting  NoiseReject in the trigger control area (TRIGGER) at
the front panel to enable or disable noise rejection.
Note: This function is not available when the current trigger source is a digital

Fx Operation
MSO1000Z/DS1000Z supports the fx operation function which can achieve more
complex operations.
The procedures are as follows:
1.
Split the complex operation
Users can split a more complex operation into inner and outer layers (the inner
layer can only be one of the algebra operations; the outer layer can be one of
the algebra or function operations) according to their needs.
2.
Set the operator and signal sources of the inner layer
Press MATH  Math  Options  fx Operator select “A+B”, “A-B”, “A×B” or
“A/B”. Press fx A or fx B to select the source A and source B of the inner layer
operation respectively.

Set the operator and signal source of the outer layer
Press MATH  Math  Operator to select the desired operator. The outer
layer supports multiple operations, including A+B, A-B, A×B, A/B, Intg, Diff, Sqrt,
Lg, Ln, Exp and Abs. Then, you can set the result (“fx”) of the inner layer
operation as the signal source of the outer layer operation.
For example, Intg(CH1*CH2). The procedure is as follows:
Press MATH  Math  Options  fx Operator to select “A×B”. Press fx A to
select “CH1” and press fx B to select “CH2”. At this point, the inner layer operation
setting is completed. Press MATH  Math  Operator to select “Intg”. You can
set the parameters of the function operation (Intg). Press Operation to select “ON”
and press Source to select “fx”.

MSO1000Z series mixed signal digital oscilloscope provides 4 analog channels as well
as 16 digital channels. For the digital channels, the oscilloscope compares the
voltages acquired in each sample with the preset logic threshold. If the voltage of the
sample point is greater than the logic threshold, it will be stored as logic 1; otherwise,
it will be stored as logic 0. The oscilloscope displays the logic 1 and logic 0 in figure
form for users to easily detect and analyze the errors in circuit design (hardware
design and software design). This chapter introduces how to use the digital channels
of MSO1000Z mixed signal digital oscilloscope.
Before using the digital channels, connect the oscilloscope and the device under test
using RPL1116 logic probe provided in the accessories. For the using method of the
logic probe, refer to the RPL1116 Logic Probe User’s Guide.

Protocol analysis can be used by users to discover errors, debug hardware and
accelerate development easily, so as to guarantee quick and high-quality
accomplishment of projects. Protocol decoding is the basis of protocol analysis. Only
protocol analyses with correct protocol decoding are acceptable and only correct
protocol decoding can provide more error information. MSO1000Z/DS1000Z provides
two bus decoding modules (Decode 1 and Decode 2) to make common protocol
decoding (including Parallel (standard), RS232 (option), I2C (option) and SPI

Start Bit: represent when the data starts outputting.
Data Bits: represent the number of data bits actually contained in each frame of
data.
Check Bit: used to check the correctness of the data transmission.
 Odd Checkout: the total number of “1” in the data bit and check bit is an odd.
For example, when 0x55 (01010101) is sent, a 1 needs to be filled in the check
bit to make the number of 1 be an odd.
 Even Checkout: the total number of “1” in the data bit and check bit is an even.
For example, when 0x55 (01010101) is sent, a 0 should be filled in the check bit.
 None: there would not be check bit during the transmission.
Stop Bit: represent when the data stops outputting.

3.
Max Length
The menu shows the maximum number of frames that can be recorded currently.
As the capacity of the waveform memory is fixed, the more the number of points
each frame of waveform has, the less the number of waveform frames can be
recorded. Thus, the maximum end frame of waveform recording is decided by
the memory depth currently selected. The less the memory depth, the more the
number of waveform frames can be recorded.
The current memory depth refers to the number of waveform points per frame.
Memory depth=Sample rate×Horizontal time base×Number of grids horizontally
on the screen; wherein, for MSO1000Z/DS1000Z, “Number of grids horizontally
on the screen” is 12. Therefore, the maximum end frame of waveform recording
is also related to the “Sample rate” and “Horizontal time base”.

MSO1000Z/DS1000Z provides three remote control interfaces: USB Device (TMC and
SICD static image capture devices share this port), LAN and GPIB (expanded from
the USB HOST interface by the USB-GPIB interface converter). The priority order of
the three ports is USB Device, LAN and GPIB. You can press Utility  IO Setting
 RemoteIO to select the desired communication interface according to the
particular condition.
 When only the USB-Device interface is connected and press Utility  IO
Setting  USB Device ”Computer”, the system will select the USB-Device
interface automatically as the only valid port no matter whether the LAN and
GPIB interfaces are connected or not. At this point, the RemoteIO menu is
disabled as shown in figure (a).
 When only the GPIB or LAN interface is connected, the system will automatically
detect the corresponding port of which the display status is “ON”. At this point,
pressing the correnponding key can turn on or off the remote connection. The
RemoteIO menu is as shown in figure (b) and figure (c).
 When GPIB and LAN are connected at the same time, the system will set LAN
(the display status is “ON”) as the current control port by default. At this point,
LAN and GPIB are available. You can select the communication interface
according to the needs. The RemoteIO menu is as shown in figure (d).

Chapter 17 Troubleshooting
The commonly encountered failures and their solutions are listed below. When you
encounter those problems, please solve them following the corresponding steps. If
the problem remains still, please contact RIGOL and provide your device
information (Utility  System  System Info).
1.
The screen is still dark (no display) after pressing the power key:
(1) Check whether the power switch is really on.
(2) Check whether the power is correctly connected.
(3) Check whether the fuse is burned out. If the fuse needs to be changed,
please use the specified fuse.
(4) Restart the instrument after finishing the above inspections.
(5) If it still does not work correctly, please contact RIGOL.
2.
The signal is sampled but no waveform of the signal is displayed:
(1) Check whether the probe is correctly connected to the oscilloscope and
item to be tested.
(2) Check whether there are signals generated from the item to be tested (you
can connect the probe compensation signal to the problematic channel to
determine which has problem, the channel or the item to be tested).
(3) Resample the signal.
3.
The tested voltage amplitude is greater or lower than the actual value
(this problem usually occurs when probe is used):
Check whether the probe ratio of the channel complies with the attenuation ratio
of the probe.
4.
There is waveform display but not stable:
(1) Check the trigger source: press MENU  Source in the trigger control
area (TRIGGER) at the front panel to check whether the trigger source
selected complies with the signal channel actually used.
(2) Check the trigger type: general signals should use “Edge” trigger and video
signal should use “Video” trigger. Only when the proper trigger type is used,
can the waveform be displayed stably.
(3) Check the trigger level: adjust the trigger level to the middle of the signal.
(4) Change the trigger holdoff setting.
5.
No display after pressing RUN/STOP:
Check whether the trigger mode in the trigger control area (TRIGGER) at the
front panel is “Normal” or “Single” and whether the trigger level exceeds the
waveform range. If yes, set the trigger level to the middle or set MODE to
“Auto”.
Note: Using AUTO could automatically finish the above setting.

The display of waveform is ladder-like:
(1) The horizontal time base might be too low. Increase the horizontal time
base to increase the horizontal resolution and improve the display.
(2) If the display type is “Vectors”, the lines between the sample points may
cause ladder-like display. Press Display  Type to set the display type to
“Dots” to solve the problem.
7.
Fail to connect PC or PictBridge printer through USB:
(1) Press Utility  IO Setting  USB Device to check whether the current
setting matches the device currently connected.
(2) Check whether the USB cable is correctly connected to the oscilloscope and
PC.
(3) Check whether the USB cable is in good condition. If needed, restart the
oscilloscope.
8.
The USB storage device cannot be recognized:
(1) Check whether the USB storage device can work normally.
(2) Make sure that the USB storage device being used is flash storage type.
This oscilloscope does not support hardware storage type.
(3) Make sure whether the capacity of the USB storage device is too large. It is
recommended that the capacity of the USB storage device being used with
this oscilloscope is no larger than 8 GBytes.
(4) Restart the instrument and then insert the USB storage device to check it.
(5) If the USB storage device still cannot be used normally, please contact
