SDS5000X Series Digital Storage Oscilloscopes

Product Overview

SIGLENT’s SDS5000X series Digital Storage Oscilloscopes are available in bandwidths of 1 GHz, 500 MHz and 350 MHz, have a maximum sample rate of 5 GSa/s, maximum record length of 250 Mpts, and display up to 4 analog channels + 16 digital channels mixed signal analysis ability. 

The SDS5000X series employs Siglent’s SPO technology with a maximum waveform capture rate of up to 110,000 wfm/s (normal mode, up to 480,000 wfm/s in Sequence mode), 256-level intensity grading display function plus a color temperature display mode. It also employs an innovative digital trigger system with high sensitivity and low jitter. The trigger system supports multiple powerful triggering modes including serial bus triggering. History waveform recording, Sequence acquisition, Search and Navigate functions allow for extended waveform records to be captured, stored, and analyzed. An impressive array of measurement and math capabilities, options for a 25 MHz arbitrary waveform generator, as well as serial decoding are also features of the SDS5000X. 

The large 10.1’’ display capacitive touch screen supports multi-touch gestures, with the addition of user-friendly one-button design for most commonly used functions, can greatly improve the operation efficiency of the SDS5000X. It also supports mouse and external keyboard control.

Design Features

Up to 110,000 wfm/s waveform update rate
Record Length of up to 250 Mpts/ch
With a waveform update rate of up to 110,000 wfm/s, the oscilloscope can easily capture unusual or low-probability events. In Sequence mode the waveform capture rate can reach 480,000 wfm/s

Using hardware-based Zoom technique and record length of up to 250 Mpts, users can select a slower timebase without compromising the sample rate, and then quickly zoom in to focus on the area of interest

256-level Intensity Grading and Color Temperature Display

Multiple Trigger Functions

Edge, Slope, Pulse, Video, Windows, Runt, Interval, Dropout, Pattern, Qualifed and serial trigger

Trigger Zone
Measurements of a Variety of Parameters

Trigger Zone is available for advanced triggering
Parameter measurements includes 3 categories: horizontal, vertical and CH delay providing a total of 39 different types of measurements. Measurements can be performed within a specified gate period. Measurements on Math, Reference and History frames are supported

Parameter statistics function

Statistics shows the current value, maximum value, minimum value, standard deviation and mean value of up to 5 parameters simultaneously. Histogram is available to show the probability distribution of a parameter.

Advanced Math Function

Search and Navigate

In addition to the traditional (+, -, X, /) operations, FFT, integration, differential and square root operations are supported. Math on math is available for more complex operations

Hardware accelerated FFT supports up to 2 Mpts operation. This provides high frequency resolution with a fast refresh rate. The FFT function also supports a variety of window functions so that it can adapt to different spectrum measurement needs. Three modes (Normal, Average and Max hold) can satisfy different requirements for observing the power spectrum

History Mode

Sequence Mode 

History function can record up to 100,000 frames of waveforms. The recording is executed automatically, so that the customer can play back the history waveforms at any time in order to observe unusual events and quickly locate the area of interest using the cursors or measurements
Segmented memory collection will store the waveform into multiple memory segments (up to 100,000) and each segment will store a triggered waveform as well the dead time information. The dead time between segments can be as small as 2 μs. All of the segments can be played back using the History function

Search and Navigate

Hardware-based Average and Eres Acquisition

The SDS5000X can search events specifed by the user in a frame. Events flagged by the Search can be recalled automatically using Navigate. It can also navigate by time (delay position) and history frames

Average and Eres (Enhanced Resolution) acquisition modes are hardwarebased, allowing the waveforms to be captured at a faster rate

Hardware-based High Speed Mask Test Function

The SDS5000X utilizes a hardware-based Mask Test function, performing up to 110,000 Pass / Fail decisions each second. It is easy to generate user-defned test templates in order to provide trace mask comparisons, making it suitable for long-term signal monitoring or automated production line testing
Built-in Mask Editor application helps to create custom masks

Serial Bus Decode

Waveform Histogram

Display the decoded characters through the events list. Bus protocol information can be quickly and intuitively displayed in tabular form. I2C, SPI, UART, CAN, LIN, CAN FD, FlexRay, I2S and MIL-STD-1553B are supported

The Waveform Histogram feature provides a statistics view of the waveform in horizontal and vertical directions

Digital Voltmeter Function

Web control 

4-digit voltmeter and 7-digit frequency counter. Any analog channel can be selected as a source. Bar, Histogram and Trend diagrams are supported

With the new embedded web server, users can control the oscilloscope from a simple web page. This provides wonderful remote troubleshooting and monitoring capabilities.

Digital Channels / MSO (Optional) 

Built -in 25 MHz Function/Arbitrary Waveform Generator (Optional) 

Four analog channels plus 16 digital channels enable users to acquire and trigger on the waveforms then analyze the pattern, simultaneously with one instrument

the SDS5000X can control the SAG1021 USB Function/Arbitrary waveform generator to output waveform with up to 25 MHz frequency and ±3 V amplitude. Six basic waveforms plus multiple types of arbitrary waveforms are built-in
