SDS5000X Digital Oscilloscopes feature Siglent’s SPO technology with a maximum waveform capture rate of up to 110,000 wfm/s (normal mode, up to 500,000 wfm/s in Sequence mode), 256-level intensity grading display function plus a color temperature display mode. Oscilloscopes also employ an innovative digital trigger system with high sensitivity and low jitter. The trigger system supports multiple powerful triggering modes including serial bus triggering. History waveform recording, Sequence acquisition, Search and Navigate functions allow for extended waveform records to be captured, stored, and analyzed. An impressive array of measurement and math capabilities, options for a 25 MHz arbitrary waveform generator, as well as serial decoding are also features of the SDS5000X Super Phosphor Oscilloscopes.

The large 10.1’’ display capacitive touch screen supports multi-touch gestures, with the addition of user-friendly one-button design for most commonly used functions, can greatly improve the operation effciency of the SDS5000X. It also supports mouse and external keyboard control.
