About This RoadTest

The Keysight Technologies' InfiniiVision 1000 X-Series oscilloscope delivers professional-level functionality with industry-leading software analysis and 6-in-1 instrument integration. It uses Keysight’s MegaZoom IV custom ASIC technology, which enables a high 50,000 waveforms per second update rate. This makes it easier to see random and infrequent glitches and anomalies that similarly-priced oscilloscopes might miss. The 1000 X-Series also has a high sampling rate of up to 2 GSa/s and comes standard with two probes. And it uses segmented memory capability to maximize memory depth while helping the scope test faster.

 

 

Ideal for New Users

The 1000 X-Series oscilloscopes are ideal for new users and students. Not only are they low cost, but learning how to use the scope and set up measurements is simple. The front panel is easy to use and features built-in help so new users can quickly analyze signals to deliver results. The kit includes built-in training signals, a comprehensive oscilloscope lab guide written specifically for undergraduate students, and an oscilloscope fundamentals slide set for professors and lab assistants.

 

Six-in-one instrument integration

Six-in-one instrument integration means the 1000 X-Series gives users even more value for their money and saves valuable bench space. In addition to being an oscilloscope, the 1000 X-Series is also a serial protocol analyzer, digital voltmeter and frequency counter. The DSOX1102G model includes a frequency response analyzer and WaveGen function generator. Bode plot fundamentals are easy to teach with the built in WaveGen and frequency response analysis.

Signal Analysis

The 1000 X-Series provides professional-quality measurement and software analysis capability. The scope features 24 typical oscilloscope measurements to quickly analyze signals and determine signal parameters. Additional signal analysis is provided by the gated FFT function, which allows users to correlate time and frequency domain phenomenon on a single screen. And mask limit testing is also available to help users easily detect signal errors. The 1000 X-Series supports decoding and analysis of a wide range of popular embedded and automotive serial bus applications, which include I2C, SPI, UART/RS232, CAN and LIN.

  • Hi Mark,

    yes the language overlay on the oscilloscope is in German (I'm living in Austria).
    Indeed, the menu language also the help comes in mixed languages.

    And also here in this forum.... we also talking about in (D)English.

    I switched the browser favorite language to English because some web site frames and forms are in English.

     

    Is it frustrating to have to work simultaneously in two languages when using the oscilloscope?

    Every days my live is in 3 languages, de, en, hu. Is there a doctor who can help me because i have migraines.
    But i use a translating tool for complex sentences.

     

    The DSO1102G is a good device for many measurements.

    But better, I suggest a 4-channel oscilloscope with minimum 200 or 300Mhz.
    In digital measurements are the most important lines, Enable, Read, Write, CS, etc...
    With which you can synchronize the data, address measurements.
    Going there is now a MDO the better solution, then you have everything in one device.
    I love to see everything at the same time. So for serial data logs to capture,

    a 3 to 4 channel device would be just right or minimum.

     

    So the DSO1102G would good for service but a bit small in the laboratory.

     

    Best Regards,

    Gerald

  • Thanks for posting this Gerald. I don't have any SPI devices set up for testing right now, so it is great that you contributed this.

     

    I notice that you have selected German language overlay on the oscilloscope (Ich denke dass ist Deutsch ich sehe im video).  I also noticed that only some of the text appears in German.  The menu boxes are a mix of German and English, but the help screen for the SPI signals is entirely in English. I expected the language support would have been complete and consistent for all functions.

     

    Is it frustrating to have to work simultaneously in two languages when using the oscilloscope?

  • Hi All,

     

    Unfortunately, I was not one of the winners of this Roadtest but thankfully, I could borrow the DSO1102G from the friendly company X-Test for testing in the Roadtest TLE94112EL_shield.
    Infineon DC Motor Shield w/ TLE94112EL for Arduino - Review

     

    X-TEST in Austria: Many thanks to Mr. Brandtner.

    https://www.element14.com/community/external-link.jspa?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.xtest.at%2Ffeedback-kontakt%2F

     

    Here, in this Roadtest, the most important for me was testing the SPI interface.
    I would like to contribute as a review here in this post.

    SPI normally requires 3 or 4 lines:
    MOSI, MISO, CLK, EN

    But the DSO1102G has only 2 measurement channels and 1 input for triggering.
    How can you display at least 3 lines at the same time? - I've set this up:
    The external trigger I used for the CLK line, the second channel for EN, the first channel for either MOSI or MISO.
    With this setting you can test an Enable controlled SPI interface.

     

     

    The example timing diagram of the TLE94112EL Roadtest:

     

    1) Set BUS to digital serial - SPI (in the video just was shown that BUS was now set as 2. setting; but if you set BUS after the Trigger, Trigger will not show the Trigger type)

    2) Set the Trigger to external and set the type of Trigger to SPI.

    Set the Bit with to 16 bits, set the Trigger edge to X

    3) Set the BUS Signals

    - CLOCK to external, level to middle of the signal level (50%), trigger edge: LOW for SDI, HIGH for SDO as mentioned in the datasheet

    - MOSI or MOSI, I used the 1. channel (yellow) of the DSO; set the signal level to middle (as mentioned in the datasheet - timing diagram); the triggering edges are also described in the datasheet

    - CS, I used the 2. channel (green); set to the frame signal edge so that the trigger will start if the CS starts or ends.

    - CS is low active, so I've set the signal level down to near 10% above GND.

    - Set to bit width to 8 bit.

    - Set LSB/MSB to LSB - the needing of this can you read in the datasheet

     

    Also the trigger: automatic - If you set to automatic, the displayed signal will run over the screen and measuring or reading would be difficult.

    The right setting would be, set the trigger to "normal" and set to the correct edges, bit rates, data bit width, then the trigger will work fine and the data values will displayed syncronized correctly to the SLCK signal (third 1/3 of the video).

     


    The other option is to test the SPI with SCLK timeout.

     

     

    Basically the setting will be the same but in the BUS settings the CS will be changed from CS edge to clock timeout.


    Here I have also set the external trigger for the SCLK, but the two vertical inputs are connected to with the data lines,
    channel 1 for MOSI, channel 2 for MISO (but sorry in this video was wrong pressed the button MOSI to 2 but the probe was connected to SDO).
    With this setting you can now measure both data lines simultaneously, synchronized with SCLK.
    The timeout after the last Clock_Cycle terminates the trigger.

    This timeout can be set at the Scope, eg. 100μs after the last clock, a new transmission frame is displayed.

    The DSO1102G also displays the associated data values with the BUS_ setting.

    In the videos shown, I show the different settings.
    Also, deliberate error settings, so you can see how the data is misrepresented.
    An important point in this is setting the trigger levels, and edges.

     

    Ok, a 4 channel oscilloscope would be nice to measure all lines simultaneously.

     

    A bit confusing can be with MOSI, MISO, SDO, SDI.... "who is who, which is which...."

    Well this DSO1102G is a fine oscilloscope.

     

    Thank you very much to all Roadtesters for your fine review.

     

    Best Regards

    Gerald

  • Thanks for keeping on top of everything Road Test related.  The program has realized improvements under your keen oversight.

     

    Congratulations to my fellow Road Testers on completing their fine reviews of this capable entry level instrument.  I enjoyed the review process and have plans to add a few more sections to my review.

     

    Mark A

  • Thanks Hendrik!

    Looking forward to your review.

  • Google did find this page for me: Download FREE Digital Voltmeter (DVM) for 1000 X-Series Oscilloscopes | Keysight (formerly Agilent’s Electronic Measurem…  where I got the license file for the DVM. It also explains how to install it.

    The frequency counter is part of the DVM functionality (although you need a signal with an AC part to be able to select it)

  • Till date, I have never used a Keysight scope. The TBS12xx serves us well but your inputs will be very useful to understand the ups and downs.

    All the best.

  • My scope arrived on time (on Thursday). I looked up the installed licenses, and its fully loaded (full bandwidth and all the serial triggers). I need to do the registration. The scope is a tad smaller than my TBS1202B-EDU (about 1cm), but it is much heavier. And the fan is quite loud - this is something that I need to look into it.

    From my first impressions it seems that Keysight  attached great importance to usability. Many tasks that need to be done regularly are easily accessible. I need to do more work with it do find out which layout of the controls I like better, but so far I did not find any fault with the Keysight.

    (But first I need to repair my main computer - it seems as if its Linux OS partition is gone, so I need to reinstall   But thats why you want to have some buffer in your test schedule...

  • Peter,

     

    I have registered the 'scope with Keysight, but I don't see where you get the license for the voltmeter and counter.

    Any hints?
