SDS700A series oscilloscope is available in the UK from Telonic Instruments
The SDS7000A is Siglent’s latest range of high-performance oscilloscopes. Engineered to meet the demands of telecommunications, wireless technologies, the oscilloscopes are tailored for the acquisition and analysis of high frequency complex signals.
Siglent developed the range for telecommunications, wireless technologies and high-speed digital technology markets, where oscilloscopes are required to provide expanded functionality to meet not just the increasing demands for acquisition and analysis of high-frequency, complex signals but to meet the growing needs of modern applications.
The SDS7000A offers 12-bit vertical resolution that not only enables the precise imaging of high-frequency signals, but also offers fine differentiation in vertical detection.
It also has four analogue channels and 16 digital channels, with bandwidths of 3GHz and 4GHz. Maximum sampling rate is 20Gsample per second which allows for the capture of fast signal transitions with high fidelity, said Telonic Instruments, which distributes Siglent products in the UK.
Each sample utilises the 12-bit ADC to limit the quantisation error. This allows engineers to observe the waveform details clearly and to measure accurately.
Standard acquisition memory depth is 500Moints per channel which can be upgraded to 1Gpoint per channel. The long storage depth enables signal sequences for up to 50 milliseconds at maximum sampling rate to be captured without any gaps.
Noise floor is as low as 220μVrms at 4GHz. The waveform capture rate can go up to 1 million wfm per second, which speeds up when capturing abnormal events.
The SDS7000A is equipped with an upgraded processor to enhance performance. The X86 processor greatly improves the response speed, measurement, operation and analysis speed of the oscilloscope. Its use has also created more opportunities for future expansion of analysis functions, said Telonic.
The SDS7000A series supports automatic parameter measurements for jitter and eye characterisation to evaluate statistical distribution of small timing changes in a system and inter-symbol crosstalk, noise, and bandwidth, respectively.
The scope is also characterised with easy setup and automatic measurements to speed debugging and simplify design testing, for a distinct time-to-market advantage.
To identify and resolve critical signal and transmission issues quickly, Siglent provides embedded compliance test solutions. These evaluate systems against communications standards including USB 2.0, 100base-TX, 1000base-T, 100base-T1 and 1000base-T1. Users can configure the test items and the software controls the oscilloscope to automatically complete the test and provide signal test results (Pass/Fail) after comparison with the reference standards.
Siglent’s highest performance active differential probe kit, the SAP5000D provides up to 5GHz of bandwidth and low noise for detailed signal analysis. Its high input resistance and low input capacitance ensure that the load introduced by the measurement system is minimised. The probe uses the SAPBus interface, making it suitable for oscilloscopes including Sigelent’s SDS5000X, SDS6000A and SDS7000A series. These probes do not need an additional external power supply and are automatically recognised by the oscilloscope.
For ease of use, the SDS700A has a 15.6-inch, high-definition touch screen, which allows various signals to be analysed simultaneously, improving efficiency and contributing to a reduced development cycle. In addition, search and navigate, and history tools, make analysis of the entire stored trace an easy operation.
