2.5-GHz DSO Packs Four 20-Gsample/s Channels

Further extending the Infiniium 54850 oscilloscope family of real-time digital storage oscilloscopes (DSOs) is the 54853A with a 2.5 GHz bandwidth and four channels capable of sampling at rates up to 20 Gsamples/s. Said to be the industry's first DSO with this level of performance, the 54853A can capture four, full-bandwidth real-time single-ended and differential signals off a single trigger event. Additionally, the scope's MegaZoom memory promises to increase the amount of information users can capture from events leading up to and after the specified trigger event. Like its family members, the 54853A is based on Windows XP Pro and has the ability to run third-party applications, such as Excel, MATLAB, Mathcad, and Norton's AntiVirus. In dual-monitor mode, waveform analysis is performed inside the scope and the results are displayed on a high-resolution monitor without having to transfer the data to a PC. Users can access data and control the instrument from remote locations via built-in web software and a 10/100 Base-T interface. The 54853A 4-channel DSO is priced at $35,995.
