We have a lovely Rigol DS1052E 50 MHz Digital Oscilloscope for looking at wavy things. Kindly donated by @Folknology.

The DS1000E Series Digital Oscilloscopes set a new standard for technology and capability. With features including 1 million points of deep memory, FFTs, record and replay, roll mode, alternate trigger mode, and adjustable trigger sensitivity the DS1000E is the new bench standard.

  • 2 Analog channels + external trigger
  • 1 Million point deep memory
  • 1 GSa/sec max sample rate
  • 5.7” TFT QVGA (320X240) with 64K color LCD backlit display
  • Trigger modes: edge, pulse width, slope, video, pattern, continuous time, and alternate
  • Specs PDF

It’s currently in Farnborough (not GG) I spoke to my colleague who’s office it is in today and I will be getting together with him in to pick afore mentioned scope as well as other bits in the next few weeks

Also worth noting, that there are well documented hacks for these scopes that turn them into 100MHz bandwidth instead. Something we could of course think about in the future :slight_smile:

Did you get a postcard? :smiley:

If you mean a screenshot of the 'scope screen announcing its new capabilities, no, but I did see it go by.
