30 March 2016 - Analog Arts introduces the SF880 PC-based 8-in-1 test instrument. The USB-powered SF880 includes an oscilloscope, a frequency response analyzer, a spectrum analyzer, a data recorder, an AWG function generator, a frequency and phase meter, a logic analyzer, and a pattern generator. This compact device has been developed for professionals with a limited budget. Audio and system engineers , and researchers can also benefit from the many features of the instruments.
The oscilloscope offers a bandwidth of 1 GHz, and a real sampling rate of up to 250 MHz (125 MHz/channel) with an effective sampling rate of 100 GHz. The frequency response analyzer performs both gain and phase analysis for frequencies of up to 150 Mhz with a dynamic range of better than 100 dB in the audio range. The AWG generates over 25 standard functions with frequencies of up to 150 MHz. Arbitrary wave-forms can also be generated with sampling rates of 1 to 125 MHz and memory depths of 1 to 64K. Its graphical editor makes generation of any signal seamless. The logic analyzer and the pattern generator of SF880 feature a complete protocol analyzer, a powerful pattern generator editor, and an intuitive interface.
The 3x5 inch pocket size unit works with any Windows computer with a USB port, with no need for an external power supply. The family has a price range of $640 to $920. The free demo application software allows the user to become familiar with the operation of each instrument.
