What is the Dead Time Between the Data Points During Sequential Store for the DL1540/DL1540L?

The minimum dead time on the DL1540 and DL1540L is approximately 200 µs. However, this value varies depending on the T/Div setting, the number of channels, and the data length. Consider the minimum value to be the value obtained when the memory length is set to 1 KW and the T/Div is set to 1 µs/Div. For other settings, the dead time may even be a few milliseconds. Therefore, keep in mind that the value indicated above is a minimum value.

Mixed Signal Oscilloscopes

A mixed signal oscilloscope is an instrument enabling the simultaneous, time correlated observations and analysis of analog with digital (logic) signals, to establish causal relationships between the various areas of a device's electronics. They are purpose-built tools for troubleshooting electrical anomalies, measuring parametric values, and monitoring cause and effect relationships between signals.


Oscilloscopes are a common type of test instrument used to capture, analyze, and troubleshoot electrical or real world physical signals. Oscilloscopes observe the change of electrical signals over time, continuously graphed on a display as voltage or amplitude vs. time.
