HD4096 high definition technology consists of high sample rate 12-bit ADCs, high signal-to-noise ratio amplifiers and a low-noise system architecture. This technology enables high definition oscilloscopes to capture and display signals of up to 1 GHz with high sample rate and 16 times more resolution than other oscilloscopes.

Oscilloscopes with HD4096 technology have higher resolution and measurement precision than 8-bit alternatives. The high sample rate 12-bit ADCs provide high resolution sampling at up to 2.5 GS/s. The high performance input amplifiers deliver phenomenal signal fidelity with a 55 dB signal-to-noise ratio and provide a pristine signal to the ADC to be digitized. The low-noise signal architecture ensures that nothing interferes with the captured signal and the oscilloscope displays a waveform that accurately represents the signals from the device under test.

16x More Resolution

12-bits of vertical resolution provides sixteen times more resolution than 8-bits. The 4096 discrete levels reduce the quantization error. Signals captured with lower resolution oscilloscopes have a higher level of quantization error resulting in less accurate waveforms on the display. Signals captured on an oscilloscope with 12-bit HD4096 technology are accurately displayed with minimal quantization error.

Oscilloscopes with HD4096 have a variety of benefits that allow the user to debug in high definition. Waveforms displayed by high definition oscilloscopes are cleaner and crisper. More signal details can be seen and measured; these measurements are made with unmatched precision resulting in better test results and shorter debug time.

Clean, Crisp Waveforms

When compared to waveforms captured and displayed by 8-bit oscilloscopes, waveforms captured with HD4096 technology are dramatically crisper and cleaner. Oscilloscopes with HD4096 acquire waveforms at high resolution, high sample rate and low noise to display the most accurate waveforms.

More Signal Details

Signal details often lost in the noise are clearly visible and easy to distinguish when captured on oscilloscopes with HD4096. Details which were previously difficult to even see can now be easily seen and measured. Using the oscilloscope zoom capabilities gives an even closer look at the details for unparalleled insight to the signals on screen.

Unmatched Measurement Precision

Precise measurements are critical for effective debug and analysis. HD4096 enables oscilloscopes to deliver unmatched measurement precision to improve testing capabilities and provide better results.
