Okay. If no telnet is possible, how to obtain the memdump? I found the SCDP C# program, which was posted in September 2018, but I don't know which SCPI commands are required for reading the memory.
Any hint where to start?
Thank you
Best regards
Andreas

There are no SCPI commands to "read memory". If you need it, you'll have to craft your own command to do it.

Another possibility might be the JTAG access.

I see. Since I have no clue about SCPI programming, I will not further investigate.

But I managed to perform the BW hack. The mainboard of my scope has minor differences, but after removing the four caps, it seems that I can measure up to 300 MHz. I do not have a signal generator which is capable of providing such a high frequency. Hence I used my SSA 3021X TG and set the output to 0 dBm. For low frequencys the scope measures 1 Vpp. At 300 MHz configured at TG it still has a reliable reading of 300 MHz and 0.9 Vpp. I tried to increase the frequency, but it becomes unreliable beyond 320 MHz. At 400 MHz Nyquist comes in and the scope shows 332 MHz...

For those who are interested in photos, I attached some here.

Thanks to everybody who contributed to the BW hack and the modified FW.  :-+

Best regards
Andreas

Hello,

I have a SDS2204X. It will be nice to have more BW  8)
I download the last mod firmware from tv84, thanks a lot.
But on reply #10 there is a HW mod ( removing 4 caps ).

My scope is still under waranty so I didn't opened it wet.
I don't understand if all the SDS2000X series had those caps ?

Thank you for your help :)

Hi all,
Thanks a lot for this information, I did a video showing how to do this on an SDS2102 model, it looks a lot like the pictures I have seen in this thread too.

Hello,

Thanks for all your hard work on this patch! I have a
SDS2304X-E. This is the educational version of SDS2304X,
the difference is that the storage depth is reduced from
140Mpts to 70Mpts. I download the last mod firmware and
upgrade successfully. But the options licensing are still
trial version. Any ideas?

Best regards!

Hello people.

I am interesting in buying Siglent 2000X 100Mhz in order to upgrade it to 350Mhz min. I dont't if it can be "HACKED"? if so, is it a hardware MODs or software?

many thanks.

Regards

Welcome to the forum.

The now few years old SDS2000X models max'ed out at 300 MHz and while a nice DSO in their time the new SDS2000X Plus models are in another league and offer BW to 350 MHz with an additional 2 channel option to 500 MHz. They are where I recommend you focus your efforts.

Hello tautech,

Yes it's what I am looking for SDS2000X Plus model. I've just read that there is a hack to upgrade the bandwidth but people don't tell how to do it. Is it like by removing some components? or a software MODs. Please can you give more details of how to do it.

350 Mhz upgrade will be enough for what I am designing.

Many thanks for your help.

Regards.

Right now the thread you are looking for is on P5 of the Test Equipment board.

Is there a way to unlock the SDS2104X 's options without hardware modification as BW is not an issue for my application?
Thanks
