2GHz oscilloscope adds eye diagrams and jitter analysis

The SDS6000A series is available with a maximum bandwidth of 2 GHz and offers 5 GS/s per channel with ESR (Enhanced Sample Rate) interpolation to boost the quality of signals to 10 GS/s per channel. A newly designed input stage delivers SFDR > 45 dBc, channel-to-channel isolation up to 70 dB and DC amplifier accuracy +/- 1.5%. This means that even the smallest signals on the lowest vertical range (500 µVdiv) can be captured. A High Resolution functionality improves the vertical resolution from 8 bits to up-to 16 bits and enhances the signal acquisition accuracy.

Two new functions are eye diagrams and jitter analysis available for the first time on a Siglent oscilloscope.

The oscilloscope is available in 500 MHz, 1 GHz and 2 GHz bandwidths. The acquisition memory has a maximum size of 500 Mpts and is distributed over 1, 2 or 4 channels. The waveform capture rate can reach up to 750,000 waveforms / s in sequence mode.

Together with the digital trigger and extensive trigger types, rare events can be isolated quickly and efficiently. The zone trigger offers enhanced flexibility by delivering two user-defined zones that can be positioned individually and used in inclusive or exclusive modes.

For deep insights the acquired signals can be zoomed in both the X and Y directions. The analysis can be carried out using many implemented measurement functions and a formula editor and four mathematical curves.

As with all Siglent oscilloscopes, the “history” function, mask test, Bode plot and a bundle of serial bus decoders (I2C, SPI, UART, CAN, LIN) are implemented as standard and the SDS6000A can optionally be expanded by 16 digital channels and an external function generator (25 MHz). Additional serial bus decoders (CAN-FD, FlexRay, MIL1553, I2S, SENT, Manchester) are also available.

The 12in 1280 x 800 touchscreen allows several signals can be displayed at the same time but clearly. The short-cut menu helps with configuration and offers quick access to the most important functions. The device supports external mouse and keyboard and can be controlled from the PC via the web interface. An external monitor can be connected via HDMI. An optional micro SD card offers plenty of space to save the recorded data. The bandwidth can be expanded via software so that the oscilloscope can grow with the expanding Engineering requirements, securing your initial investment.
