Rigol DS1054Z Board Version differences.
« on: January 04, 2018, 07:07:54 am »
Hello.
I want to buy Rigol's DS1054z, but in the internet I can found a few of versions of board of that oscilloscope:
0.1.1
0.1.4
0.2.1
0.2.3 (is probably latest  - see attachemnt please)
Anyone know what differences they have?

If your question is: "Are the early onesto be avoided?" the answer is "no".

I'm not aware that any revisions have affected functionality. It's probably more a production/cost thing.

A distributor I want to buy this from said their board version is 6.1.x
There is a how-to on the Rigol homepage on how to look versions up, and in the picture of their unit it says the board version is 4.1.1. It was a 1104Z though. https://assistly-production.s3.amazonaws.com/244097/portal_attachments/570388/102_1_original.png?AWSAccessKeyId=AKIAJNSFWOZ6ZS23BMKQ&Expires=1523335871&Signature=ejnz5VZ8lv%2B6vincxu%2BLEneVjjY%3D&response-content-disposition=filename%3D%22102_1.png%22&response-content-type=image%2Fpng

I am confused.

It's not something to worry about.

PS: All of them are secretly 1104Z models. You can unlock them to full bandwidth by pressing the right sequence of buttons.

I am worrying about this because I want to know if I get the newest, which has the best probability of the lowest jitter in the 16MHz / 1GHz clock converter, doesn't it?

Jitter isn't a problem since about three years ago. Even when it was, a firmware update will fix it.

I saw Daves review of the fix, and it wasn't a particularly good one.

The new waveform looks ugly when probed with an oscilloscope but nobody has shown that it causes any problems.

(and several people here have tried)
