For fast capture of many waveforms, the E1428A offers sequential single-shot mode which internally stores successive waveforms rapidly. The memory can be optimized for acquisition speed or capacity. There are 100 K-words of internal RAM or 500 K-words of shared RAM for segment storage.
The E1428A comes with both the SCPI command set and an Keysight 54510A-compatible command set. The compatible language provides a use model where programs can be developed using the 54510A bench oscilloscope. Using the 54510A provides direct visual feedback to the programmer during program development. Once programs have been developed on the 54510A, they can be run on the E1428A with only minor modifications.
