How much ....

Very cool technology. The next question becomes "how much"?


I still have a 100MHz Analog scope around collecting dust somewhere, but my 1GHz, 5gsps scope does pretty much everything I need ... for now.

 

I have to imagine the probes and practices for capturing signals at this level is complex as well.

Too far out of my area of need I am afraid. I am still reasonably happy with my 100MHz scope :-) Great to hear about this breakthrough though.

If David Jones can afford one, so can you.

>Looking forward to the teardown video on Dave Jone's EEVBlog any day now!

High-speed scopes

LeCroy will surely have a demonstration at DesignCon 2014. I wouldn't be surprised if the company has a billboard on the 101 freeway as you head south from SFO airport to Santa Clara. Only in Silicon Valley.

I don't usually need a high speed scope, but it is good to see that progress is being made in this area.  I always enjoy teaching the new engineers about measurement.  When they see a bad signal on a low speed scope, they assume that it is real.  When I have them take a look with a better scope, they understand that the tool they use makes a difference.  As Clint would say, "A man's got to know his limitations."

Unfortunately, this is still in the prototype stage, so we are a ways off from knowing pricing...I'll keep you posted though.

This is great!  My O-scope isn't good to 100MHz.  I'm sure it will be awhile before this is affordable, but it a big step on the way to looking at terahertz waves.

I think this is a classic case of "if you have to ask the price, you can't afford it" :-)  Looking forward to the teardown video on Dave Jone's EEVBlog any day now!

Are you enthusiastic about this news, or is this too far out of your area of need for a scope? I'm working to find out more about the design challenges in creating this prototype. More info when I have it.
