GW Instek (www.gwinstek.com) has introduced a dual channel oscilloscope from the GDS-3000 Series that offers 150 MHz bandwidth, a maximum real time sampling rate of 2.5 GSa/s and an equivalent time sample rate of up to 100 GSa/s. The GDS-3152 digital oscilloscope also offers vertical resolution of eight bits and rise time of 2.3 ns.
The oscilloscope’s optimized operation interface provides a screen capture preview that helps engineers from choosing the wrong file from numerous stored waveform files. The function allows engineers to preview the file without opening it so that the oscilloscope can function more efficiently and conveniently.
Its rear and front panel high speed 2.0 USB host ports allow users to easily access stored data. The rear panel USB device port can be used for printing out hardcopies via a PictBridge friendly printer and for remote control. LAN and RS-232 interfaces are also offered for system communication & ATE applications.
The oscilloscope also features a SVGA video output port to enable users to transfer DSO screen image to an external monitor or projector for big screen observation or remote controlling. An optional GPIB to USB adaptor is available for interface conversion through the front panel USB device port.
The GDS-3152 features Power Analysis software that provides four measurement functions, namely Harmonics, Power Quality, Inrush Current and Ripple.
Its Serial Bus Analysis software comes complete with analysis tools for decoding and triggering of commonly utilized serial bus interfaces, including SPI, I2C and UART.
