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."
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.
Replay available now: A handful of emerging network technologies are competing to be the preferred wide-area connection for the Internet of Things. All claim lower costs and power use than cellular but none have wide deployment yet. Listen in as proponents of leading contenders make their case to be the metro or national IoT network of the future. Rick Merritt, EE Times Silicon Valley Bureau Chief, moderators this discussion.
