Clarification of PicoScope specs

Post by gertcronje » Thu Oct 21, 2004 10:39 am


I'm interested in the 3205 PicoScope. I have a few questions:

Your spec sheet states that it has a 100MHz bandwidth. In this forum, however you repeatedly say it only has a 50Mhz bandwidth. Which is the correct spec?

Assuming the 100MHz is correct, you state that the single shot mode does 100MS/s. Is this on both channels or on a single channel? I.e. when measuring both channels is the sampling interlaced between the two or is each channel sampled at 100MS/s?

Thank you for your post.

Analogue bandwith is 100MHz (this bandwith is above Nyquist and is for ETS).

Maximum sample rate 100MSps on both channels ie both channels can simulaneously sample at the same time.

Best regards,
