Sample Rate 500 Msps @ 9 ch
1 Gsps  @ 4 ch
Sample period
2ns @ 1-9 ch
1ns @ 1-4 ch
Channels 9
Channels per Cable Pod
(x Pods per unit )
9 (x 1)
Threshold Circuits 1
Adjustable Threshold  -4V to +4V
Threshold Accuracy +- 250mv
Trigger Output (BNC) No
Trigger position Selectable (0-100%)
Buffer Size Selectable (1-100%)
Internal Memory Yes, 128 Mbit internal Storage for Store & Forward
Real-time Compression Yes, Multi-mode (varies due to multiple compression techniques implemented on the fly according to data characteristics)
Streaming Yes, (up to 100 Million Transitions)

Since we have real-time hardware-based compression, we measure captures in 'number of Transitions' rather than ' number of samples.'
The number of samples captured varies with the data rate, but is always higher than the number of transitions
(#samples ~= #transitions * samplerate / datarate).

Typical Transitions captured (USB 3.0)
9ch@500Msps: 100M (@data rates up to 160MTps)
4ch@1Gsps: 100M (@data rates beyond full bandwidth)

Typical Transitions captured (USB 2.0)
9ch@500Msps: 100M (@data rates up to 14MTps)
4ch@1Gsps: 100M (@data rates up to 24MTps)

Guaranteed minimum transitions captured (with data rates > 10Tps):

(Ensured by the large store-and-forward buffer, even if the data rate far exceeds the USB bandwidth)
9ch@500Msps: 8 Million
4ch@1Gsps: 10 Million

Typical Serial captures, USB2 or USB3 at full sample rate
    Asynchronous 18 Million Characters
    Synchronous 5 Million Characters
    I²C 4 Million Characters
    SPI 4 Million Characters

Model DV509 is one of our newest models in the DigiView DV5 series of Logic Analyzers. With a sample rate of 1 Gsps, the DV509 more than doubles the fastest sample speed of our DV3209. This new model has 14 times the storage capacity, a larger threshold range, additional comression capabilities and USB SuperSpeed communication for automatic switchover to streaming from Store & Forward. As with other DigiView models, the DV5 series still features advanced trigger capabilities, inputs designed to handle ± 20 volts (continuous) and auto switching hardware compression.

This latest addition continues to feature the durability of our DV3 series by having an aluminum case, static protection and Ground current protection (ground lead to ± 12 volts). We also include high quality, connectorized channel cables (Strand count > 60) with a micrograbber clip for each channel and ground connection.

Our professional Capture & Analysis software, cables and micro clips and flexible stand are included at no additional cost.
