A Hi-tech DSO Platform
VPO- Visual Persistence Oscilloscope Signal Processing Technology
UNIQUE SPLIT SCREEN FUNCTION
AUTO RANGE FOR BOTH TIME BASE AND VERTICAL SCALE
The Auto Range function automatically adjusts the time base and/or the vertical scale of displayed waveform when the frequency and/or the amplitude of input signal changed. This function gives user the convenience to have DSO always display waveform in a proper fashion on the screen tracking the frequency and amplitude changes of the input signal. It is especially useful when the user needs to alternately probe and test multiple circuit points containing signals with different frequencies and amplitudes.
DUAL DISPLAY WINDOW ZOOM
28 AUTOMATIC MEASUREMENTS
The GDS-3000 Series supports simultaneous measurement of up to 28 waveform measurement items grouped into three main waveform parameters: amplitude, time and delay measurements. The display modes include an individual mode and a Display All mode. The former can display any 8 of the automatic measurements while the later can display all the automatic measurements for a channel.
FFT TEST FUNCTION
THREE INPUT IMPEDANCE SELECTIONS
Three input impedance, 1M , 75 , and 50 are available for user's selection. The flexibility of impedance selections, including 1M to get minimum loading effect, 75 to accommodate Video transmission applications and 50 to fit RF communication applications, extends the GDS-3000 Series utilization range.

WAVEFORM FILE PREVIEW
FREE 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-3000 Series. 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 incomprehensible command line syntax. With the simple user interface and robust features, FreeWave allows you to get the most out of the GDS-3000 with little effort.
A SVGA video output port in the rear panel of GDS-3000 Series allows the screen-image transfer from DSO to an external projector or a monitor for remote monitoring or big screen observation. This direct image transfer feature greatly increase the efficiency of presentation in the meeting, teaching in the class, remote monitoring of hazardous events from a secured zone, and fast and easy monitoring in the production line.
VARIOUS INTERFACES SUPPORT
Two high-speed USB 2.0 Host ports located in both front panel and rear panel are used for easy access of stored data. In the rear panel, a USB Device port is available for remote control and hardcopy print-out through a PictBridge compatible printer. RS-232 and LAN interfaces are provided as standard for system communication & ATE applications.
A SVGA video output port allows the transfer of DSO screen image to an external projector or monitor for remote monitoring or big screen observation. A GPIB to USB adaptor is available as an option for interface conversion though the USB Device port in the front panel.
SERIAL BUS ANALYSIS SOFTWARE SUPPORTING I2C, SPI and UART (OPTIONAL)
With serial bus technology being widely used in embedded applications, the proper triggering and analysis of flowing data, control signal and associated pulse waveforms in serial bus communication has been a difficult job and challenge to design engineers. The Serial Bus Analysis software of GDS-3000 Series carries complete analysis tools for triggering and decoding of commonly used serial bus interfaces, including I2C, SPI and UART. Without spending time to study serial bus regulation details, the user only needs to set the trigger condition on GDS-3000 to get the data slots of interest.
POWER ANALYSIS SOFTWARE FOR POWER SUPPLY MEASUREMENTS (OPTIONAL)
The Power Analysis software contains four measurement functions, including Power Quality, Harmonics, Ripple and Inrush Current. The Power Quality analysis function allows the measurements of Voltage, Current, Frequency, Power and other quality related parameters for power source efficiency improvement. The Harmonics analysis function performs evaluation of power waveform distortion and gives harmonic test data for power source design and quality check. This function is complied with IEC 61000-3-2 standard. The Ripple measurement function, acquiring the ripple and noise overriding the DC waveform, is used to evaluate the DC power source quality. The Inrush Current measurement function is used to measure the power-on surge current, which may cause the damage of the device circuit.
