Oscilloscope With An 18-GHZ Bandwidth

June 7, 2006
The SDA 18000 oscilloscope has an 18-GHz bandwidth, a 60-GS/s sampling rate, and a memory that stores 150 million points.

This lets it measure 10-Gb/s Ethernet and Fibrechannel 8.5 serial standards. The scope also has Q-Scale analysis and plot view, which lets users examine jitter. The scope handles waveform acquisition, measurement and analysis, and turns large waveform data records into smaller pieces that can be completely processed within cache memory without constant memory fetches. It is priced at $128,000.
