Many SIGLENT oscilloscopes, including the SDS1104/1204X-E, SDS2000X-E, SDS2000X Plus, SDS2000X HD, SDS5000X, and SDS6000A series feature the built-in Bode II automated Bode plotting feature. When coupled with a SIGLENT SDG series generator or SAG external AWG, the scope/generator combo can be used to produce frequency response curves on many circuit elements and components as well as … Continued
The SIGLENT SDS2000X Plus, SDS2000X HD, SDS5000X, and SDS6000A series of oscilloscopes feature trace labels that can be edited by the user. This can make it much easier to differentiate traces on the display as well as in saved images of the display for reporting, etc.. In this tip, we will show you how to … Continued
Here are the typically expected noise floor numbers for the SDS6000A Oscilloscope: Note: Uses StdDev measurement @ 5 GSa/s, 10 MPts/ch
Fuses are a common circuit element and are key to protecting from overvoltage and overcurrent situations that can damage important circuits. Fuse markings are typically stamped symbols located on the metal cap of the fuse. Here is a helpful guide to common fuse markings used with instrumentation, taking a common fuse type as an example: … Continued
Many SIGLENT products are RoHS compliant to EU 2015/863. This is also known as RoHS 3 Check the datasheet for the product in question to find more information.
Here is a cross-reference of SIGLENT oscilloscope serial decoding features compared to the Tektronics MDO3 options: Tek MDO3MSO: 16 channel logic analyzer function. The SIGLENT equivalent is optional license SDSxxxx-16LA, where xxxx represents the model (SDS1000X-E, SDS2000X-E, SDS2000X Plus, SDS5000X, or SDS6000A series of oscilloscopes) and hardware (SPL2016 for SDS2000X Plus, SDS5000X, and SDS6000A series/SLA1016 … Continued
A number of SIGLENT products feature an embedded program that eases the conversion of binary data to CSV. Click to download the Binary-to-CSV program.
Here is a list of the current products that support Bode plotting and the maximum number of points available per sweep: SDS1xx4X-E/SDS2X-E Series: 500 points (Linear)/1043/decade (Log) SDS2000X Plus/SDS5000X Series:500 points (Linear)/1024/decade (Log) SDS6000A Series: 751 points (Linear)/1576/decade (Log)
From approximately August, 2021 through May, 2022, the SIGLENT SDS6000A oscilloscope was delivered with model SP3050A 500 MHz probes that were tuned for use with the SDS6000A only. Even though they had the same model number, they have a different response from the same SP3050As that were included with other SIGLENT scopes, including the SDS5X. … Continued
Here is a quick method for estimating the lowest current measurement that is possible with an oscilloscope and current probe. This is especially useful when the datasheet for a probe may not show the minimum current that can be measured or it may be missing the noise floor value. For this note, we will be … Continued
