Oh wow. Other winners are requesting a slower scope, but with the software options..

Its probably too late for me to change.. But i asked anyway.. I'm stoked either way.

Anyone else ask to swap this late on?

I request a slower scope straight away as I wasn't going to pay the custom fees for the 1Ghz but I could do with the 200Mhz. You have to fill in new paperwork.
I did not requested the application bundle, it was requested/added by the Keysight representative  :-+ . The distributor just passed the license paper on to me. It is great as it is supposed to enable the signal generator within the scope (and loads of other stuff).

Oh  8).. I missed that post from Daniel. I was reading through this thread. Cheers for that heads up. :-+
It would be too difficult to convince my wife to spend any money on it though ::). Since electronics is just a hobby for me, the mortgage and baby kind of take priority to all that  :P

One of the things i wanted to do with the scope was build some interface so i can monitor debugging output from multiple ICs. Something like syslog in Linux, but for multiple serial data streams instead of processes, so i really do want that Ethernet adapter.

Certainly will be giving Daniel a DM once i have the scope, and after i have shown it off and made all by friends jealous, which is harder to do then you might think! After i won the scope, the first thing i learnt was how few people know what a scope is |O. I spent hours explaining it!

I find that very easy to believe.  A few years ago, one of my sons was talking to a mate with a technical background and the mate made reference to how a scope would be useful.  This mate expected my son to just look at him with a blank expression (for exactly the reason you mentioned) but was flabbergasted that my son not only knew precisely what a scope was - but that we had one in the house.  Apparently the mate was so incredulous, it took several further questions for him to accept the fact.  He was so used to people not knowing, that he had built up that expectation ... then to find someone who actually had one around just blew his mind.

I just wish I'd been around to see the fun.

And this beauty just showed up!
Time to re-learn all my motor memory that was trained using that old CRO.

A huge thanks to everyone at Keysight for this amazing machine, and all their other machines!  :-+

I guess its a thing to just have a play with the probe compensation output  :P

And for the money shot!

I was able to talk Daniel from Keysight in to getting the app bundle for a very reasonable price!
And it really does turn this into an amazing work horse.
I'm only beginning to realise how much time this saves!

THANK YOU!

Note: I was not sure if putting serial numbers online was a good idea, so i shopped it out.

The APP Bundle is really awesome. A customer called today needing to dig intoca CAN bus and create an interface. Not a problem! Didn't think I needed it until I needed it. Amazing.

Sent from my horrible mobile....

It is always rewarding when you look at a problem and realise - Hey! I can do that!!

The Keysight giveaway finished 6 months ago.

Keep your eyes open to see what, if anything, might happen in the future.
