Best choice for a peak detector in an automatic test system

Postby Metroltek » Fri Dec 23, 2005 1:17 pm

My application is to detect the positive peak value of a signal that has a maximum amplitude of 10V and a bandwidth of 20MHZ using USB. Impedance should be 1MOHM. I use Labview and would need a way to setup and measure using this language. Cost point is less 500 USD.

Hi

Thank you for your post.

To get a 20MHz bandwidth you need to use a PS320x scope. I would recommend the PS3205 to give you a good horizontal resolution at the higher frequencies. This is however outside of the price you specified, at 599GBP.

The PS3204 is a 25MHz unit but might not give you sufficient resolution at the higher frequencies. It is priced at 399GBP.

Best Regards
Sarah
