Some SIGLENT oscilloscopes feature an Arbitrary Waveform Generator (AWG) option. This feature allows you to source basic waveforms up-to 25 MHz outputs up to 6 Vpp (-3 to +3 V max in High Z output impedance). In this application note, we are going to show the steps involved in capturing a waveform on a SIGLENT … Continued
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
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
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.
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
In some extreme hardware errors, the oscilloscope may become unresponsive or “hang” during the boot sequence. If your oscilloscope is frozen, will not boot, or appears to be unresponsive, you can attempt a hardware reset by following these instructions: 1. Disconnect all USB, LAN, and input cables. Leave the power cord connected. 2. Power cycle … Continued
Over time and temperature, the components in a test instrument can change and adversely alter the performance and measurement accuracy. Periodically running the self-calibration routine can help ensure top performance. You can run the self-calibration routine at any time, but it is recommended if the operating temperature changes by more than 5 °C. 1. Connect … Continued
The Security Erase process deletes all user data and clears available volatile and non-volatile memory. To perform a security erase process, follow these steps: 1. Press Save/Recall 2. Press Security Erase 3. Press Confirm to begin the process After the process is complete, you can reconfigure the scope for measurements.
The bandwidth of a digital oscilloscope, often called analog bandwidth, refers to the bandwidth of the front-input amplifier of the oscilloscope and is equivalent to a low pass filter. Oscilloscope bandwidth is defined as the frequency at which the amplitude of the observed signal drops by -3 dB (or drops to 70.7% of its actual … Continued
To save on printer ink, you can invert the image on your SDS2000X oscilloscope. Insert a USB memory device into the front panel USB port Press Save/Recall on the front panel Set Type to BMP Set Screen to Inverted Select Press To Save, name the file, and Press to Save to save the file to … Continued
