High sampling rate

TiePie engineering's TiePieSCOPE HS805 is a pc oscilloscope that can sample at 1Gigasamples per second on one channel and 500 MS/s simultaneously on two channels, real time.

To display the measured signals, the oscilloscope has a high bandwidth of 250 MHz. It is equipped with a memory buffer of 32Mega samples per channel enabling long measurements at full speed.
The TiePieSCOPE HS805 is equipped with an on board arbitrary waveform generator which can generate signals up to 20MHz, with amplitudes up to 12V peak value.
Signal shapes include sine wave, square wave, triangular wave, noise and user defined arbitrary signal shapes. For arbitrary signals, a waveform buffer of 32Mega samples is available. The maximum sampling clock for generating signals is 200MS/s. The generator can also be used to generate previously measured signals.
Typical applications are debugging fast serial communications, like SPI, ProfiBus and CAN bus signals. According to TiePie, the sampling rate enables capturing the fine details of the signal and the record length ensures that a complete block of the serial communication can be captured. The AWG can then be used to regenerate the signal, to simulate the original source in labs.
The multi channel measurement software turns the TiePieSCOPE HS805 into an oscilloscope, a multimeter, a spectrum analyser and a transient recorder.
