Playing with an oscilloscope you’ll (probably) never own article tells that Hackaday staff were really jealous when [Shahriar] a video he made, in which he casually explains how a $500,000 160GS/s 62GHz oscilloscope works and then starts playing with it. Looked interesting do I thought to link it to my blog as well.
Experiments and Demo of an Agilent DSA-X 96204Q 160GS/s 62GHz Oscilloscope article video demos the world’s fastest oscilloscope! The unit demoed in this video is equipped with all available options and is valued at over 0.5 million US dollars. The block diagram of various sub-systems of the oscilloscope are presented and the principle operation of the instrument is explained.
This is a really fancy oscilloscope. That fastest scopes I have had my hand on have had few GHz bandwidth.
