Review: Rigol DS2000 Oscilloscope Pt 1

This is a review / buyer's guide / tutorial on the Rigol DS2000 / DS2072A. As this is my first oscilloscope review I've gone into a little more detail for those new to oscilloscopes. I'm trying to use a standard set tests for this review which will carry through to future reviews so comparisons can be made between oscilloscopes.

I will do a side by side review of the Rigol DS2000 vs the Agilent DSOX2000 in the future. In this review I do make comparisons and references to the Agilent 2000 X series.

Details:

*    Wider vertical range 500uV/div ~ 10V/div, lower noise floor,    better for small signal capturing
*    Full bandwidth, lower overshoot less than 5%, perfect frequency response design
*   Bandwidth 70MHz,100MHz,200MHz, 300MHz
*   Max. Sample Rate 2G Sa/s
*   Standard Memory Depth up to14Mpts,Optional Memory Depth up to 56Mpts
*  Innovative "UltraVision" technology
*  Integrated 2 channel, 25 MHz generator "-S" models only
*  50 Ohm Impedance included

Amazing review! Thank you and congratulations. I also like the "analog" feel of the agilent, but segmented memory is a bliss! %-)

Solar Powered Kindle: Solar Cell Testing

This is the start of the Solar Powered Kindle Project again.
The first series can be found here:
Solar Powered Kindle - Part 1

In this video I give an overview of what I'm trying to achieve and then focus on solar cell / panel testing. The testing is to try and find the best solar cell for the project. I'm doing the testing indoors under controlled conditions.

I use a metal halide light and electronic DC load. This allows me to adjust for light and heat conditions to find the maximum power point of the solar cell (MPP, MPPT, maximum power point tracking).

I test a range of solar cells: amorphous, monocrystalline, polycrystalline.

I then test the use of Peltier cooling / heating elements and heat sinks as a solution to help cool the solar cells for long test durations.

Buy solar cells / panels / gadgets here:
