Knobs Explanation
Use the vertical controls to display signal waveforms by adjusting the vertical
knob, and the
knob, and setting the input parameters.
1.
Using vertical
knob.
The vertical
control changes the vertical position of signal
waveforms in all channels (excluding MATH and REF). The resolution changes
according to the vertical level set. Pressing this knob will clear the channel’s
vertical offset to zero.
2.
Using vertical
knob.
The vertical
control changes the vertical sensitivity of signal
waveforms in all channels (excluding MATH and REF). If the Volts/Div is set to
“Coarse”, the waveform scales in a 1-2-5 step sequence from 2
mV ,5mv,10mv…to 10 V. If the Volts/Div is set to “Fine”, it scales to small steps
between the coarse settings. Turn the knob clockwise to decrease the vertical
scale, turn the knob counter-clockwise to increase the vertical Volts/Div setting.
You can toggle between “coarse” and “Fine” setting through pressing the
knob.
3.
During the vertical positioning, a position message is displayed on the left
bottom of the screen, such as POS:32.4mv in the same color along with the
corresponding channel. The unit is V (Volts).

Term Explanations
FFT Resolution: The FFT resolution is the quotient between sampling rate
and the number of FFT points. With a fixed FFT points, the lower sampling
rate, the better the resolution.
Nyquist Frequency: The highest frequency that any real-time digitizing
oscilloscope can acquire without aliasing. It’s normally half of the sample rate.
This frequency is called the Nyquist frequency. Frequency above the Nyquist
frequency will be under sampled, causing a situation known as aliasing.

Knobs Explanation
The horizontal controls change the horizontal scale and position of waveforms. The
horizontal center of the screen is the time reference for waveforms. Changing the
horizontal scale causes the waveform to be expanded or compressed with respect to
the screen center. Horizontal position changes the displayed waveform position,
relative to the trigger point.

To Set up the Trigger System
The trigger determines when the oscilloscope starts to acquire data and display a
waveform. When a trigger is set up properly, it can convert unstable displays or blank
screens into meaningful waveforms.
When the oscilloscope starts to acquire a waveform, it collects enough data so that it
can draw the waveform to the left of the trigger point. The oscilloscope continues to
acquire data while waiting for the trigger condition to occur. After it detects a trigger,
the oscilloscope continues to acquire enough data so that it can draw the waveform
to the right of the trigger point.
Press MENU button to enter trigger system setting interface.

DS1000B provides five trigger modes: Edge, Pulse, Video, Pattern and Alternative.
Edge: An edge trigger occurs when the trigger input passes through a specified
voltage level in the specified slope direction.
Pulse: Use this trigger mode to catch pulses with certain pulse width.
Video: Use video trigger mode on fields or lines for standard video signals.
Pattern: Recognising trigger by searching specified code.
Alternative: Trigger on non-synchronized signals.

Trigger Terms Explanation
1. Trigger Source:
Trigger occurs from several sources: Input channels (CH1, CH2, CH3, CH4), AC
Line, Ext, Ext/5.

CH1, CH2, CH3, CH4:
It is the most commonly used trigger source. The channel works when it is
selected as a trigger source whatever displayed.
 Ext Trig:
The instrument can be triggered from an external source while acquiring data
from CH1, CH2, CH3, and CH4. For example, be a trigger source with an
external clock or a signal from another part of the test circuit. The Ext, Ext/5
trigger sources use an external trigger signal connected to the EXT TRIG
connector. Ext uses the signal directly; it has a trigger level range of -0.6 V to
+0.6 V. The EXT/5 trigger source attenuates the signal by 5X, which extends the
trigger level range to -3V to +3 V allowing the oscilloscope to trigger on a larger
signal.

AC Line:
AC power can be used to display signals related to the power line frequency,
such as lighting equipment and power supply devices. The oscilloscope gets
triggered on its AC power input, but an AC trigger signal is not required.
2. Trigger Mode:
The trigger mode determines how the oscilloscope behaves in the absence of a
trigger event. The oscilloscope provides three trigger modes: Auto, Normal, and
Single.

Auto:
This sweep mode allows the oscilloscope to acquire waveforms even when it
does not detect a trigger condition. If no trigger condition occurs while the
oscilloscope is waiting for a specific period (as determined by the time-base
setting), it will force itself to trigger.
When forcing invalid triggers, the oscilloscope cannot synchronize the waveform,
and the waveform seems to roll across the display. If valid triggers occur, the
User’s Guide for DS1000B Series
2-45
RIGOL
display becomes stable on the screen.
Any factor results in the instability of waveforms can be detected by Auto Trigger,
such as the output of Power supply.
NOTE: When horizontal control is set under 50 ms/div, Auto mode allows the
oscilloscope not to capture trigger signal.

Normal:
The Normal mode allows the oscilloscope to acquire a waveform only when it is
triggered. If no trigger occurs, the oscilloscope keeps waiting, and the previous
waveform will remain on the display.

Single:
In Single mode, after pressing the Single key, the oscilloscope waits for trigger.
While the trigger occurs, the oscilloscope acquires one waveform then stop.
3. Coupling:
Trigger coupling determines which signal component passing to the trigger
circuit. Coupling types include AC, DC, LF Reject and HF Reject.
AC: AC coupling blocks DC components and attenuate signal lower than 10 Hz.
DC: DC coupling passes both AC and DC components.
LF Reject: LF Reject coupling blocks DC component, and attenuates all signal
with a frequency lower than 10 kHz.
HF Reject: HF Reject coupling attenuates all signals with a frequency higher
than 100 kHz.




4. Pre-trigger/delayed trigger:
The data is collected before and after trigger.
The trigger position is typically set at the horizontal center of the screen. In the
full-screen display the 6div data of pre-trigger and delayed trigger can be
surveyed. More data (14div) of pre-trigger and 1s delayed trigger can be
surveyed by adjusting the horizontal
knob.
This feature is very useful to study the events that led up to the trigger point.
Everything on the right of the trigger point is called post-trigger information.
Delay range (pre-trigger and post-trigger information) depends on the sweep
speed selected.
2-46
User’s Guide for DS1000B series
RIGOL
5. Adjustable trigger sensitivity
To avoid the influence of noise from the physical world, and get the stable trigger,
the trigger circuit has adopted Stickiness. In DS1000B series, the stickiness is
adjustable from 0.1div-1.0div, which means when it sets to 1.0div; the trigger
circuit will not affect any signal with peak-peak amplitude less than 1.0div, so as
to avoid the influence of the noise.

Key Points:
Real-time Sampling:
DS1000B has Real-time sampling rate up to 2GSa/s. At the time base 20ns
or faster, the oscilloscopes use the sine(x)/x interpolation to expand the
horizontal time base.
Equivalent sampling:
Known as Repetitive sampling to get up to 20ps of horizontal resolution
(equivalent 50Gsa/s). This mode is good for observing repetitive signals,
and it is not recommended for single-shot or pulse.
Normal Acquisition:
Oscilloscope acquires signal by equal time interval.
Average Acquisition:
Apply averaging to your signal to remove uncorrelated noise and improve
measurement accuracy. Reduces random or uncorrelated noise in the signal
display. The averaged waveform is a running average over a specified
number of acquisitions from 2 to 256.
Peak Detect:
Peak Detect mode captures the maximum and minimum values of a signal,
and finds highest and lowest record points over many acquisitions.

(2) By Commands
DS1000B is a USB TMC (USB Test & Measurement Class) instrument, which
could be controlled by commands on the basis of NI-VISA (NI-National
Instrument, VISA-Virtual Instrument Software Architecture) or Agilent-VISA (for
the details about commands, refer to the relative Programming Guide). USB or
network is recommended for the communication between the instrument and a
PC to integrate it into your testing system.
The library related to VISA should be installed before using it. If both the
NI-VISA and Agilent-VISA were installed in your computer, it would automatically
identify the available VISA driver. Only one VISA driver is recommended to be
used in a computer such as NI-VISA (visit www.ni.com to download). Here we
show you NI-VISA as an example:

Example 3: Capture a Single-Shot Signal
To capture a single event, it needs to gather some pre-test knowledge of the signal
in order to set up the trigger level and slope correctly. For example, if the event is
derived from TTL logic, a trigger level of 2 volts should work on a rising edge.
The following steps show how to use the oscilloscope to capture a single event.
1. Set the probe and the channel attenuations to 10X.
2. Set up the trigger.
(1) Press the MENU button in the Trigger control area to display the menu.
(2) Press Edge to select the trigger mode.
Press Slope to select .
Press Source to select CH1.

knob to adjust trigger level.
(5) Press Run/Stop button to start capturing. When the trigger conditions are met,
data appears on the display representing the data points that the oscilloscope
obtained with one acquisition.
This function helps to capture the occurrence easily, such as the noise with
large amplitude; and set the trigger level higher a little above the normal level
and press Run/Stop and wait. When noise occurs, the instrument will record the
waveform before and after the trigger. Adjust the
knob in the
