Saelig Company, Inc. introduced the Syscomp SIG-101 Signature Analyzer– a PC-based two-channel 200kHz oscilloscope, sampling at 2MSa/s, that includes an arbitrary waveform generator, and an 8-bit digital I/O port. Building on the CGR-101, its predecessor, the SIG-101 also adds calibrated signature techniques to the oscilloscope waveform display capabilities for quickly troubleshooting circuit boards. Unlike most PC-based oscilloscopes with 8-bit A/D sampling, the SIG-101 has an 11-bit A/D that gives eight times more detail, and the built-in 12-bit 200kHz arbitrary waveform signal generator can be used to create swept, stationary, or noise test signals, or provide PWM outputs. The oscilloscope and waveform generator can be combined to provide Vector Network Analysis capability, yielding Bode plots that graph the frequency response of a circuit.
- Provides calibrated signature analysis with a wide amplitude and frequency range, which is a powerful technique for detecting faults on PCBs
- All functions can be controlled via a USB2.0-connection from a computer running Windows, Linux, or Mac operating systems, using the open-source GUI software provided
- Powered by an external 110VAC wall adapter switching supply, and made in Canada by Syscomp Design
