Low-cost oscilloscopes

19 April 2017 Test & Measurement

Keysight Technologies’ new low-cost InfiniiVision 1000 X-Series oscilloscopes include 50 to 100 MHz models that deliver professional-level functionality with advanced software analysis and 6-in-1 instrument integration.

The 1000 X-Series uses Keysight’s unique MegaZoom IV custom ASIC technology, which enables a high 50 000 waveforms per second update rate. This makes it easier to see random and infrequent glitches and anomalies that similarly priced oscilloscopes might miss. The 1000 X-Series also has a high sampling rate of up to 2 GSps and comes standard with two probes. The oscilloscopes use segmented memory capability to maximise memory depth while helping the scope test faster.

These oscilloscopes are ideal for new users and students. Not only are they low-cost, but learning how to use the scope and set up measurements is simple. The industry-standard front panel is easy to use and features built-in help, so new users can quickly analyse signals to deliver results. Unlike most scopes in this class, the educator’s resource kit comes standard. The kit includes built-in training signals, a comprehensive oscilloscope lab guide written specifically for undergraduate students, and an oscilloscope fundamentals slide set for professors and lab assistants.

Six-in-one instrument integration means the 1000 X-Series gives users even more value for their money and saves valuable bench space. In addition to being an oscilloscope, it is also a serial protocol analyser, digital voltmeter and frequency counter – and the EDUX1002G and DSOX1102G models include a frequency response analyser and WaveGen function generator. Bode plot fundamentals are easy to teach with the built-in WaveGen and frequency response analysis.

The scope features 24 typical oscilloscope measurements to quickly analyse signals and determine signal parameters. Additional signal analysis is provided by the gated FFT function, which allows users to correlate time and frequency domain phenomena on a single screen. Mask limit testing is also available, to help users easily detect signal errors. The 1000 X-Series supports decoding and analysis of a wide range of popular embedded and automotive serial bus applications, which include I2C, SPI, UART/RS-232, CAN and LIN.
