The SDS6204A Oscilloscope employs Siglent’s SPO technology with a maximum waveform capture rate of up to 170,000 wfm/ s (normal mode, up to 750,000 wfm/s in Sequence mode), 256- level intensity grading display function plus a color temperature display mode. It also employs an innovative digital trigger system with high sensitivity and low jitter. The trigger system supports multiple powerful triggering modes including serial bus triggering. 

Tools such as History waveform recording, Search and Navigate functions, Mask Test, Bode Plot, Power Analysis and Eye/Jitter Analysis allow for extended waveform records to be captured, stored, and analyzed. An impressive array of measurement and math capabilities, options for a 25 MHz arbitrary waveform generator, as well as serial decoding are also features of the SDS6204A.

The large 12.1’’ display capacitive touch screen supports multi-touch gestures, with the addition of user-friendly UI design, can greatly improve the operation efficiency. It also supports mouse control, and remote web control over LAN

Excellent User Interface and User Experience

Bode Plot

The oscilloscope can control the isolated USB AWG module or a stand-alone SIGLENT SDG generator, to scan the amplitude and phase-frequency response of the DUT, and display the data as a Bode Plot. This makes it possible to replace expensive network analyzers in some applications

Power Analysis (Optional)

The Power Analysis option provides a full suite of power measurements and analysis, which greatly improve the measurement efficiency in switching power supplies and power devices design
