Portable Digital Oscilloscope DSO-2102
Available with Parallel Port or USB Connection
The DSO-2102 PC-Based Oscilloscopes connect to your desktop or laptop via the parallel port or USB port (optional). Both channels can operate at up to 100 Million Sa/s with a 32K sample buffer. The 2102M version includes a Spectrum Analyzer (FFT), Advanced triggering, Pass/Fail testing and displays many other useful characteristics of the data.
Triggering The DSO-2102 has many triggering options:
The buffer has fully adjustable pre/post trigger positioning. This lets you define how much data is collected before the trigger event and how much is collected after.
After recording the data, "zoom-and-scroll" simplifies troubleshooting and analysis. The display shows the entire recorded waveforms. Additionally, the user can zoom in (up to 50X) on signal details and scroll through long data records to identify and characterise problems. The locked all-channel zoom keeps all the analog waveforms synchronised.
The deep memory allows analysis of jitter from the beginning of the record to the end. By zooming/scrolling and then measuring with three cursors, pulse widths and channel-to-channel timing can be compared at different sections of data streams. This feature allows identification of time varying problems such as "power-on" sequences and clock jitter.

DC to 50 MHz Spectrum Analyser
The DSO-2102M also delivers high accuracy spectrum analysis. A binary FFT algorithm is used to break the input signal down into its spectral components. Unlike swept spectrum analyzers which require a stable repetitive signal the 2102M can also analyse transient event spectra. The frequency range extends from DC to roughly one half the selected sample rate (Nyquist frequency).
Although the PC displays the data and provides the user interface. It is
not used for high speed data acquisition. If your PC is fast enough and has enough memory to run windows well it will run
this device well.
Automatic Data Storage
Superior to most stand-alone instruments, the DSO-2102 lets you store an unlimited number of waveforms, timing patterns, and spectra to disk. Later, recall the data to the screen for visual inspection and comparison to "live" data. Or process the stored waveforms through the DSO-2102M spectrum analyzer and waveform analysis functions. Or use your own software to analyze archived waveforms. To save time, you can set the 2102M to automatically datalog your waveforms to a mass storage device after each trigger. Or the data logger can store only waveforms meeting specific parameter criteria, such as rise times between 20 and 30 ns and pulse widths greater than 100 ms, etc.... Data can be stored in our format or in industry standard format for exporting to other software.
The DSO is about the size of a video tape (18 cm x 10 cm x 4cm). If you need portability what could be easier than connecting the DSO to your laptop.
