Just curious about peoples experiences/thoughts about the HP5183A Waveform Recorder.
It's a 2 channel 12 bit digitizer with 512K word memory, 3MHz max sweep rate (no display, HPIB must be used to transfer data).
The sweep rate if pretty slow for a lot of applications, but the 12bit of vertical resolutions is intriguing, and both channels can have differential input capability.
I've seen some recently for ~ $100.00 but have been unable to find a manual.
