3206 and 10GS/s sampling rate for repetitive signals???

Postby gordon99 » Wed Oct 26, 2005 4:52 pm

Hello, I have a question - what does the 10GS/s sampling rate of this oscilloscope exactly mean? For what can this feature be used? I would like to visualize eye diagrams of modern fast serial buses, like PCIexpress, gigabit Ethernet or Infiniband (1 ~ 2.5 Gbps). Aren't there low pass filters at input of the ADC, which would make it impossible to measure such signals? Can this feature be used to for oversampling?

Thanks :)

Yes it can Gordon.

The software allows you to select ETS functions and oversampling rates for the 3204,5&6.

Just to add to that, the front end bandwidth is 200MHz on the 3206 and so anything over this may not display as well.
