Which scope to get?

Post by Guest » Wed May 05, 2010 8:27 am


I'm more or less new to scopes and am trying to capture/analyze (digital) ISDN (BRI/PRI) signals. Those signals have a data-rate of 192kbit/sec (BRI) or 2048kbit/sec (PRI).
I want to be able to capture those signals (as waveforms) for at least 5 (better 10) seconds.
In a second stage, I might try to capture a different (digital) signal operating at 8MHz - but that would only be a nice addon.
