Posted: 07 Oct 2011 ?? ?Print Version ?Bookmark and Share

Keywords:scope? sample rate? real-time bandwidth?

In this document, Agilent Technologies Inc. recommends that a scope's maximum specified sample rate should be at least four to five times higher than the scope's specified real-time bandwidth. With this criterion, the scope's sin(x)/x waveform reconstruction filter can accurately repro�duce the wave shape of higher speed signals with resolution in the tens of picoseconds range.
