Adding MSO/Logic Analyzer Capability to the SDS1004X-E Series of Oscilloscopes

February 26, 2018

Mixed Signal Oscilloscopes (MSO’s for short) feature the ability to show both analog and digital signals using the same timebase. This is essentially like adding a logic analyzer (LA) to the analog scope portion of the design. The SIGLENT 4 channel SDS1004X-E series of oscilloscopes (currently the 100 MHz SDS1104X-E and 200 MHz SDS1204X-E models) can … Continued

SDS1000X-E New Fixed Position Zoom

February 8, 2018

This feature allows the user to adjust the position selections for horizontal and vertical zooming. Traditionally, most scopes allow you to zoom around a fixed position. This is typically the center of the display (which is the standard operation on all SIGLENT scopes). We refer to this as fixed delay for horizontal and fixed offset … Continued

How to Capture a Runt Pulse with a SIGLENT SDS Oscilloscope

December 27, 2017

Capturing a Runt Pulse The new Super Phosphor Oscilloscope (SPO) technology supports deep memory, a fast waveform refresh rate and a 256 grey scale and color temperature waveform display. The intelligent Pass / Fail function is widely used in industrial electronic detection. The technology also includes powerful intelligent triggering (window, interval, timeout, pattern, Runt). Here … Continued

Adjusting measurement font size with the SDS2000X series

December 22, 2017

You can increase the font size used for the measurement functions of the SDS2000X series. To activate this function: – Press Utility > Do Self Cal (Page 1/3). This will bring up the Self Cal warning: – From the warning page, press Cursors 1 time > Measure 1 time > Display/Persist two times > Measure 1 … Continued

How to save to an external USB with the SDS series of oscilloscopes

December 22, 2017

The SDS series of SIGLENT Digital Oscilloscopes have a number of save options that include copies of the displayed image (Bitmap, JPG, and PNG are common image types) as well as instrument configurations (Setups) and data (CSV). Here are brief instructions on how to save files to external USB memory devices. Insert a USB memory … Continued

What instruments accept SCPI commands for remote control?

October 25, 2017

All SIGLENT instruments (except for the SHS1000 and SHS800 hand-held oscilloscopes) support SCPI remote control commands. For more information, download the specific instrument programming guide located on the product page.

SDS1000X-E Low Frequency FFT Performance

October 25, 2017

One of the more exciting features of the SIGLENT SDS1000X-E Series of Oscilloscopes is the 1 Mpoint FFT capability. Coupled with the 500 uV/div low voltage measurement range and the fast waveform update rate, this feature makes the SDS1000X-E a powerful spectrum monitoring tool. In this tip, we show you some screenshots of the FFT … Continued

SIGLENT X and X-E series oscilloscopes Sequence and History mode

October 25, 2017

With the advance of science and technology, more demands are being placed upon stability, performance, and the intelligence of electronic products. Product design engineers face many problems with the verification and debugging of high-speed signals. A typical example is intermittent glitches with some low duty cycle signals, such as laser pulses, metastable low-duty radar pulses or … Continued
