This oscilloscope is ideal for hobbyists, engineers and is perfect for schools or labs where quality, accuracy and performance are key to successful testing. It has a superb easy to read TFT screen with high resolution graphics making subtle changes in signal easy to spot. It has built-in presets designed to get the basic configuration right but has a multitude of variable for precise control.

With dual sampling modes, a 4,000 point record length, a real-time sampling rate of 250MSa/s and an equivalent time sampling rate of 25GSa/s, the GDS-1052-U Series DSO provides an excellent balance of performance between memory length and sampling speed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent piece of kit for the money, the display isn't as sharp as a CRT unit, but it does provide digital readout of measurements which is very useful. The unit is a convenient size for my small workshop/shack and would be perfect for most radio amateurs.

I need to capture glitches. Does it have a storage function to capture a glitch from a trigger signal.

Yes the unit has full logging features and can also be connected to a PC to extend the length of time recordings can be made for. You can find full details in the user guide for the device
