Saelig Company, Inc. has announced the Siglent SDS7000A series of high bandwidth, high-resolution oscilloscopes with advanced features such as 20 GSa/s sampling, 12-bit vertical resolution and 500 Mpts per channel memory. Using 12 bit ADCs to limit quantization errors aids greatly in observing small signal details. The noise floor on the 7000A series is as low as 220 μVrms at 4 GHz bandwidth and the waveform capture rate reaches 1 million wfm/s, ideal for capturing abnormal events. The SDS7000A scopes have a 15.6 in. high-definition touch screen for analyzing all signal channels simultaneously and improving operational efficiency. 16 digital channels are also available for high performance mixed signal analysis.
The SDS7000A series supports multiple automatic parameter measurements, such as jitter and eye characterization, with easy setup to speed debugging tasks and simplify engineering design testing. Siglent also provides embedded compliance test solutions to evaluate systems versus communication standards including USB 2.0, 100base-TX, 1000base-T, 100base-T1 and 1000base-T1. Users can configure the test items, allowing software to control the oscilloscope to automatically complete the defined test, and automatically provide signal test results (Pass/Fail) after comparison with reference standards. This helps to speed up, identify and resolve critical signal and transmission issues. The trigger system supports multiple powerful triggering modes, including serial bus triggering. Tools such as history waveform recording, search and navigate functions, signal scan, mask test, bode plot, power analysis, eye/jitter analysis, and compliance test allow for extended waveform records to be captured, stored and analyzed.
The oscilloscope is supported by the SAP5000D 5 GHz active differential probe for detailed signal analysis. Its high input resistance and low input capacitance ensures that the load introduced by the measurement system is minimized. The probes do not need an additional external power supply and are automatically recognized by the oscilloscope via an intelligent SAPBus interface, making them also suitable for oscilloscopes in the SDS5000X, SDS6000A and SDS7000A series.
The Siglent SDS7000A series of high bandwidth, high-resolution oscilloscopes consists of two models: SDS7404A (4 GHz) and SDS7304A (3 GHz).
