Enthusiastic?

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.

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 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."

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.

and the price tag?

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!

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

If David Jones can afford one, so can you.

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.

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.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
