Using MemoryPrime technology, the GDS-1000A-U is able to overcome the problems associated with memory constraints. High sample rates, rarely found in traditional DSOs, can be maintained over longer periods of time, without effecting performance.

Coupled with the high resolution 5.7” color TFT display, with user-friendly interface USB device and host port make the GDS-1000A-U series feature-rich. Furthermore, the GDS-1000A-U series provide a lifetime warranty program!

NEW FEATURES


GDS-1000A-U_gds-a02

Fast Horizontal Position Mark and Search

MemoryPrime technology allows a maximum of 2M points of waveform data. For engineers, analyzing a considerable amount of data can be an extremely challenging task. To assist engineers to analyze waveforms quicklier, we provide Horizontal Page Skip and Set Time Mark functionalities, letting engineers take full advantage of the 2M memory depth.


GDS-1000A-U_gds-a03

Auto Measurement Gating

A built-in Autoset function on a digital oscilloscope gives engineers remarkable convenience. With the complexities of product features, traditional auto measurement information is inadequate for modern measurement needs. The new Cursor Gating feature allows you to mark an area with cursors for auto measurement.


GDS-1000A-U_gds-a04

Flexible Probe Factor Setting

There is a diverse range of test probes currently on the market such as passive, differential, and electrical probes. The attenuation ratio of each probe type also differs greatly. To ensure compatibility, probe attenuation ratios of 0.1X to 2000X as well as voltage and current probes are supported by the GDS-1000A-U.

 

ABOUT MemoryPrime TECHNOLOGY

What is the single feature lacking from most digital storage oscilloscopes? Adequate memory depth. Is the memory depth of your DSO large enough?

With 2M points of memory, the GDS-1000A-U has the capability to acquire far more waveform data compared to other DSOs in the same performance range.

The 1GSa/s sampling rate and 2M point memory play an extremely powerful role for single-shot waveform capture. Properly set the trigger conditions to baby-sit the expected waveform. When the single-shot waveform is triggered and captured, you are able to check and see the single-shot event without losing any detailed information. A DSO, with high sampling rate but short memory, can't do the job of single-shot waveform capture as well as the GDS-1000A-U.

EASY TO USE

Full-featured acquisition mode and 27 auto measurement functions help users to measure the parameters of captured waveforms accurately. The advanced Auto-Set function enables GDS-1000A-U Series to catch waveform automatically and display waveform quickly. With Arithmetic functions, +, -, x ,FFT ,FFTrms and Zoom FFT. GDS-1000A-U Series keep users aware of the measurement results by updating values immediately. Without almost extra calculation, GDS-1000A-U can provide sufficient information of testing

OBSERVATION-DELAY ON/ OFF

For the convenience of waveform observation and analysis, the GDS-1000A-U includes Delay On/Off functions usually available only in the higher end products. With Delay On, a signal can be observed from an offset of the trigger point. This feature allows the horizontal scale and the waveform scale to be expanded and centered on the delay point rather than the trigger point, allowing a signal to be observed in detail where needed.

OBSERVATION-EXPAND BY GROUND/CENTER

In a DSO, "AC Coupling" is normally used to isolate the AC components of a signal by blocking the DC components. This is useful to see a signal with a small AC component that is offset with a large DC voltage. With AC coupling to block the DC voltage, small AC waveforms can be observed from the center of the screen for measurement or examination. However, capacitive loading under AC coupling mode may cause waveform distortion as low frequency components become degraded, an effect that needs to be avoided in frequency critical applications. The Expand by Ground and Center functions are convenient tools to expand a waveform vertically. With this feature, the vertical scale of a waveform can be expanded either from the ground reference or from the center of the screen without causing capacitive loading.

FFT / FFTrms and Zoom FFT measurement

The FFT math function on a digital storage oscilloscope is often used to observe the fundamental and harmonic components of a signal. Typically the traditional unit of the FFT is a decibel (dB). However in the use of dB, it is difficult to identify the fundamental frequency of a signal from a noisy spectrum sometimes. With the FFTrms function, the GDS-1000A-U series can clearly display the fundamental frequency of an acquired waveform.

With the FFTrms function ,the GDS-1000-A-U series can clearly display the fundamental frequency of an acquired waveform.Zoom FFT provides users with observation flexibility that they can move FFT waveform horizontally and zoom it up to 20X to investigate details of FFT signal.

PC REMOTE CONTROL SOFTWARE

Using a USB port coupled with FreeWave remote monitoring software is the easiest and most convenient way to capture data from the GDS-1000A-U. With FreeWave, a screenshot can be saved as an image file (.bmp/.jpg), waveform data(.csv) can be logged, and movie files(.wmv) can be recorded in real-time. Not only can FreeWave monitor and record waveforms over a long period of time, but previously recorded waveforms can also be observed. Instrument settings can even be configured without the need to learn incomp rehensible command line syntax. With the simple user interface and robust features, FreeWave allows you to get the most out of the GDS-1000A-U with little effort.

To achieve the most ideal application for memory depth, the GDS-2000E series has the built-in segmented memory function. The segmented memory function allows users to select the desired important signals for observation. Hence, insignificant signals can be neglected and serial bus decoding; pulse or inrush signals can be identified when retrieving signals.

The segmented memory function of the GDS-2000E series allows users to select the number of sections. The maximum sections can be selected are 29,000. After activating the function, users can select and observe waveform for each segment by turning the Variable knob. The ultimate application of memory depth, therefore, is completely realized.

Users can also select “analyze segments” to conveniently obtain the analysis results.

1M FFT Frequency Domain Display Function

The FFT function of the GDS-2000E Series provides the maximum 1M display for more precision frequency domain display. The function supports four window displays, including Rectangular, Hamming, Hanning, and Black-harris. Users select window display for frequency domain analysis according to test requirements. The GDS-2000E series not only provides the FFT function but also FFTrms, vertical adjustment, and local zoom-in functions for users to adjust waveforms of frequency domain by their requirements. Via rapid waveform update rate and waveform search functions, users can precisely observe the test results of frequency domain.

Digital Voltage Meter

The integrated digital voltage meter provides three-digit voltage meter and five-digit frequency counter. Its function includes tests for AC rms, DC, DC rms, period and frequency. Under the limited resources, engineers can simultaneously monitor voltage and frequency as well as conduct complex measurement for signal trigger to elevate the R&D efficiency. This feature is very convenient for users to grasp the actual issue, diagnose and debug system circuit.
