GW Instek (www.gwinstek.com) has unveiled a 100 MHz oscilloscope from the GDS-800 family that has been specifically designed to deliver a maximum sampling rate of 25 GSa/s and a deep memory of 125 k points — the GDS-810S Digital Storage Oscilloscope.
The GDS-810S features color or monochrome LCD displays, while providing a seamless balance between sampling speed and memory depth. Aside from an easy-to-remember menu tree, the oscilloscope also comes with an analog-scope like front panel design and an advanced trigger functions that includes TV Line, Pulse Width, Time-Delay and Event. These features allow the oscilloscope to meet even the most rigorous signal measurement requirements.
Its FFT function permits the oscilloscope to conveniently shift the signal display into frequency domain from time domain. The oscilloscope can also simultaneously display the frequency time domain with the time domain.
With optimum sampling rate of 25 GSa/s, the GDS-810S offers a point to point resolution of 40 ps for displaying repetitive waveforms. For signal viewing, the oscilloscope — with its long memory of 125 k points — also offers a longer record length and a higher or equal sampling rate.
The GDS-810S features an easy-to-operate on-screen menu that limits the area for waveform display. When the on-screen menu is not used, hiding it allows users to observe the waveform in 12 divisions.
The GDS-810S provides a frequency and duty cycle adjustable probe calibration signal. Although the probe calibration signal is primarily offered for accurate running probe compensation, it is also adequate to be utilized as a signal source for basic testing and education purposes.
