I was reading the banner specs for the latest scope from Keysight: The UXR1104A oscilloscope.

It’s unreal to think about the rate that this is accepting signals and the rate at which it’s generating and processing information.

You have a scope that is sampling the input with 10-bits of ADC resolution (ok, so you only have a 5-bit ENOB (effective number of bits) at 110GHz). You have it taking 256 billion samples a second. Over four channels.

This is a truly insane amount of data.

This is just over a terabyte of data every single second that it can theoretically process.

It’s just mindblowing.

Take a look at the datasheet: https://literature.cdn.keysight.com/litweb/pdf/5992-3132EN.pdf
