Sorry for my poor english.

I have one Oscilloscope MSO9404A 4 GHz, 20 GSa/s. Very often I do not need all the bandwidth (4 GHz) of the oscilloscope to effetture measures, but much less. To decrease the noise, I use the "Bandwidth Limit" but it's is very very slow. For 50 MHz, 100MHz, 200Mhz, 500MHz it is unusable, the filtering is done in software and it's very slow.

In recent firmware (Ex: 3.50.0003) provides a hardware limitation of the band. Using this mode, the slowdown is not present but there is only a limitation to 20 MHz. Agilent can not implement even 50 MHz, 100 MHz, 200 MHz, 500 MHz ?


Thanks very much.
