LeCroy oscilloscope series
LeCroy sells everything from entry-level to very high-end oscilloscopes, making use of own designs as well as contract manufacturers such as Iwatsu and Siglent. One feature that's common to all of those models is the support for LeCroy's waveform template, a data format used to retrieve waveform data using GPIB/SCPI commands. For this reason, this page isn't about a single oscilloscope in particular but all scopes belonging to the X-Stream family.
Virtually all devices listed on http://teledynelecroy.com/oscilloscope/ should work (except for the 8-channel, 10-bit and 12-bit models).
