Product Overview

SIGLENT’s SDS6000A series Digital Storage Oscilloscopes are available in bandwidths of 2 GHz, 1 GHz, and 500 MHz, have a sample rate of 5 GSa/s (10 GSa/s ESR) at each channel, a maximum record length of 500 Mpts, and display up to 4 analog channels + 16 digital channels mixed-signal analysis ability.

The SDS6000A series employs Siglent’s SPO technology with a maximum waveform capture rate of up to 170,000 wfm/ s (normal mode, up to 750,000 wfm/s in Sequence mode), 256-level intensity grading display function plus a color temperature display mode. It also employs an innovative digital trigger system with high sensitivity and low jitter. The trigger system supports multiple powerful triggering modes including serial bus triggering. Tools such as History waveform recording, Search and Navigate functions, Mask Test, Bode Plot, Power Analysis, and Eye/Jitter Analysis 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 SDS6000A Digital Oscilloscope.

The large 12.1” display capacitive touch screen supports multi-touch gestures, with the addition of user-friendly UI design, which can greatly improve the operation efficiency. It also supports mouse control and remote web control over LAN.

Newly designed active probes

For high-speed digital/fast rise time measurements, an active probe is the perfect choice. The standard SIGLENT SAP1000 active probe is fully compatible with the SDS6.. but there are also two new active probes. SAP2500 is single-ended and the  SAP2500D is 2.5 GHz differential active probe. With the Eye diagram/ Jitter analysis functions, SDS6000A is more capable in high-speed circuits design and signal integrity measurements.
