Power analysis, Bode II, and advanced math functions added to the SDS5000X Series
The new flagship SDS5X scope was updated on 10.9.2019 with revision 0.8.7R1B1 that added power analysis (option), Bode II, a totalizer, and a new advanced math formula editor including multi-variable integration and derivation.
Power analysis is perfect for power supply designers that wish to evaluate the performance of their designs, while the Bode II analysis can help with phase/gain margins. The advanced math features allow users to view complex calculated results like instantaneous power quickly and easily.

VNA user interface update adds port extensions, user calibration, and markers for the SVA1015X
After beta feedback, SVA firmware version 184.108.40.206.1 (released 06/01/2019) started off by adding port extensions, user calibration selection, and markers for the VNA measurements. This trend continues to the latest release (version 220.127.116.11.5 released 11/11/2019) with optimized calibration, sweep speed, and simultaneous trace types to increase the SVA ease-of-use and power.
Bode Plot to SDS1104X-E, SDS1204X-E, and SDS2000X-E Series Oscilloscopes
Frequency analysis curves are useful for evaluating device performance with respect to input frequency. A typical frequency response curve of a circuit element or device includes the amplitude and phase output with respect to frequency. This is also known as a Bode plot.
With firmware revision 6.1.20 released on 1/02/2018, SIGLENT integrated Bode plotting into the 4 channel SDS1000X-E and SDS2000X-E oscilloscopes. This provides automatic control and synchronization with any SIGLENT SDG or SAG series of generators for on-screen Bode plotting.
Revision 6.1.33 released on 5/5/2019 added variable level sweep control and other features to provide even more control and flexibility for customers performing phase/gain analysis on power supply designs.

Adding TrueArb to SDG1000X Series
Traditional DDS generators can suffer waveform distortion as the output frequency increases. SIGLENTs TrueArb technology ensures that the output waveform matches the programmed waveform exactly and provides the ability to control the output sample rate by setting the samples/second exactly. First introduced on the mid-range SDG2000X series, it was further developed for the SDG1000X series of generators with firmware revision 1.01.01.33R1 released 02.26.2019.
