[SI-LIST] Re: FW: Copper interface cable proposal

Tegan,

David gave a good description of the 11801/CSA803 capabilities, options,
and limitations.  Be aware that the 11801/CSA803 and accompanying plug-ins
including the SD-24, etc. have all been discontinued.  Their service life
may also be limited due to dwindling availability of parts.  We have some
of these 'scopes and heads, and we keep getting warnings from Tektronix
about how they don't know how long they'll be able to fix them.  They are
available on the used market, but the SD-24s in particular are getting hard
to find and very expensive.  So, if you plan to keep it for a long time,
you might be better off with the CSA8000 or the similar box from Agilent
which are both current products.

Good luck in your search.


Thanks.
