Rigol DSO1104Z / 1054Z Logic Analyser Option?
« on: May 21, 2016, 06:33:52 PM »
Does anyone have any experience with the logic analyser options for the Rigol 1054Z series?

Been thinking about a new scope and could do with a logic analyser too so it might be a good option for me

but only if it's worth it and works well

would spending the extra £ be better spent on the regular DS1054Z scope and a USB based LA?

Keep your eyes open for a soon to be announced LA addition to the Siglent range.  ;)

Don't tell anybody, OK.

I have the logic analyser option on my MSO1074Z and IMO is worth is for the small extra outlay. It's quite good actually, obviously not on the level of the KS MSO3000 series I have at work but it does the job. I have a Saleae Logic 16, but it doesn't get as much use - the big advantage of the MSO is obviously you can display waveforms at the same time which can help with triggering or troubleshooting, however full protocol decoding is easier on the Logic 16 because you can easily scroll around the captured data. It depends what you want to do with it really.
