6 GHz bandwidth. Picosecond resolution.

All in the palm of your hand.

Our GigaWave™ digital sampling oscillscopes offer 12-bit vertical resolution, 1 ps time resolution, and 6 GHz analog bandwidth, all in a tiny 4” form factor. That’s a combo you’ll never find anywhere else – starting from $2,295.

Unmatched value.

With a 40 ps risetime, 4 ps trigger jitter, and true sub-picosecond timing precision, the GigaWave™ 6000-series is ideal for ultrafast pulse analysis and high-bandwidth optical applications. Thanks to our unique CDF sampling technology, the GigaWave™ offers 6 GHz bandwidth at an industry-leading cost: 5-10x lower than comparable offerings.

Infinite portability.

One USB-C cable is all you need. Ready whenever you are.

“Just a quick note to say our GigaWave arrived yesterday: What a complete delight of a product - both the hardware and software! We do many tests that border on physics experiments; so it was just so pleasurable to set up the GigaWave to sit in for some expensive kit.”
— Shepard Siegel, Atomic Rules LLC

Note that many of the reviewer-suggested features/fixes have now been implemented. The acquisition has also been sped up significantly.
We recommend trying our latest software in demo mode for the most up-to-date experience. See also our thread on the EEVBlog forum.
