Today is the day! Today is the day!!
Why is today so important? I’m glad you asked.
Well, for starters, it’s the first day of Scope Month! If you liked last year’s Scope Month, you’re going to love the 2017 version. During the entire month of March, we’re giving away 125 oscilloscopes – that’s more than 3x what we gave away last year. Make sure you enter every day for even more chances to win. Bookmark www.scopemonth.com for easy access to all of the information you need. And, check out the drawings on YouTube each day to see if you’re one of the winners. Don’t want to leave it to chance? Check out the Test to Impress Contest and tell us why you should get a new oscilloscope.
But why else is today so important?
One of the main Scope Month giveaways is the new InfiniiVision 1000 X-Series, and we just introduced it today! The 1000 X-Series has 50 to 100 MHz bandwidths and a starting price of $449 (USD). This oscilloscope family lets you capture more of your signal and see more signal detail than similarly-priced scopes with its up to 2 GSa/s sampling rate and 50,000 waveforms per second update rate. They feature up to 6-in-1 instrument functionality to give you even more value for your money, and they have 2 analog channels (and the external trigger can be used as a 3rd digital channel). Segmented memory capability maximizes the memory depth while helping the scope test faster. Basically, if you want the best cheap oscilloscope available, you should be looking into the 1000 X-Series.
The 1000 X-Series is ideal for new (or intermediate) oscilloscope users. The front-panel is industry-standard, so you know it’s going to be similar to other oscilloscopes you’ve used (or will use in the future). And getting up to speed on oscilloscope functionality is easy with its built-in help features. So if you’re stuck or want more explanation about a measurement, you can press down and hold any button to access help screens and short setup tips.
Built-in help comes in 13 different languages 11 training signals are built into the scopes
Educators also like the 1000 X-Series because in addition to giving students easy access to help information, an Educators Resource Kit is included at no additional cost. Other vendors usually charge more for their Educators Resource Kit, but Keysight’s 1000 X-Series oscilloscopes come standard with 11 build-in training signals, a comprehensive oscilloscope lab guide, and an oscilloscope fundamentals slide show for professors and lab assistants. Another big draw for educators is the Bode plot capability made possible with the frequency response analyzer in the EDUX1002G and DSOX1102G models.
The 1000 X-Series’ 6-in-1 instrument integration means you’re getting even more out of your oscilloscope investment. In addition to being an oscilloscope, it is also a:
- Frequency response analyzer (EDUX1002G and DSOX1102G models only)
- WaveGen function generator (EDUX1002G and DSOX1102G models only)
- Serial protocol analyzer (with additional software)
- Digital voltmeter (free with registration)
- Frequency counter
To learn more about the 6-in-1 capability, check out pages 8 and 9 of the 1000 X-Series data sheet.
The 1000 X-Series has professional-quality measurement and software analysis capability. These oscilloscopes have 24 typical oscilloscope measurements to help you quickly analyze signals and determine signal parameters. The gated FFT function gives you additional signal analysis, letting you correlate time and frequency domain on a single screen. Mask limit testing is also available to help you easily detect signal errors. The 1000 X-Series supports analysis and decode of popular embedded and automotive serial bus applications, including I2C, UART/RS232, SPI, CAN and LIN.
As you can see, while the 1000 X-Series oscilloscopes are low-cost, Keysight managed to pack a lot of capability into them. Years of Keysight-custom technology and expertise was leveraged to look for ways to aggressively reduce costs while not sacrificing on quality. (But more about that in a later blog post!)
