Rohde & Schwartz Jump into the Scope Market

At the end of June Rohde & Schwartz announced they are entering the oscilloscope market by introducing two new families of scopes: RTO family and RTM family. The RTO family is for high speed applications and provides bandwidths of 1 and 2 GHz. The RTM is more for the general electronics market providing bandwidths up to 500 MHz.
In case you don't know R&S is a German based company who makes mainly RF/Microwave test and measurement equipment. They are a big player in the wireless and aerospace defense test market.
The scope business is a highly competitive market with Tek out in front, Agilent in second, and LeCroy a distant third. Good luck!
