Handyscope HS5: 2 channel high precision USB oscilloscope with low distortion Arbitrary Waveform Generator

TiePie engineering has unveiled the world’s first high resolution USB oscilloscope with a built-in 30 MHz function/arbitrary waveform generator, the Handyscope HS5. The Handyscope HS5 combines an high accuracy (0.1% typical) Oscilloscope, Spectrum analyzer, Protocol analyzer, Data recorder, Multimeter and Waveform generator in one tool.

The Handyscope HS5 is the first USB High Resolution Oscilloscope (USB powered) sampling at 500 MHz, with a 14 bit resolution and a 250 MHz bandwidth. This makes it possible to analyze very fast signals with very small amplitudes. The smallest distortions can be revealed due to the high resolution and bandwidth. Because of the deep memory (up to 64 MSamples on one channel), long record measurements are available for intermittent phenomena and Fast Fourier Transform calculations with over 32 million spectral lines can be performed. Using very fast FFT algorithms, an FFT with 1 million spectral lines can be performed within a second. Long term continuous uninterrupted streaming with the data logger can be done up to 20 MSamples per second.

The Handyscope HS5 Arbitrary Waveform Generator has a 20! times higher frequency range than a standard DDS generator. The Arbitrary waveform generator sampling frequency is adjustable up to 240 MHz. Using the TiePie engineering true form Constant Data Size system, this allows generating signals up to 30 MHz in arbitrary mode. The 64 MSamples waveform buffer allows for many user applications. The true form CDS system of the Handyscope HS5 Arbitrary waveform generator gives a typical spurious distortion below -85 dB at 100 kHz signal frequency. No other Arbitrary waveform generator in its class can match this.

Combined with the Multi Channel oscilloscope software, the Handyscope HS5 turns your PC into an High Resolution Oscilloscope, Precision Spectrum analyzer, High Performance Multimeter, Very Fast Data logger, Comprehensive Protocol Analyzer and High Fidelity Arbitrary Waveform Generator.
