GDS-1000A-U Description

The GDS-1000A-U Series provide a unique solution. The GDS-1000A-U lineup includes GDS-1152A-U, GDS-1102A-U and GDS-1072A-U three models. Operating at 150, 100 or 70 MHz with a real-time sampling rate of 1GSa/s, the GDS-1000A-U employs MemoryPrime technology (more detail please visit 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.


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.

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.
