Benefits

12 digit/s frequency resolution See small changes in frequency with industry-leading frequency resolution.
100 ps time resolution Accurately capture signal details with industry-leading single-shot time resolution.
Multi-parameter display Read critical auxiliary measurement values displayed with your main frequency, time, or phase measurement to quickly asses your device's performance.
Trend Plot mode Plot measurement trends and graphically identify the extent of drift and intermittent events.
Histogram mode Discover stability or noise problems by viewing results as a histogram.
Statistics mode View multiple statistical values such as average, min, max, standard and Allan deviation to see how your signal is changing.
Integrated power meter Measure frequency and power with a single connection, enabling you to analyze variations in signal power with 0.01 dBm resolution @ 100 ms acquisition time.
Optional TimeView™ software Transform your timer/counter into a modulation domain analyzer and see frequency changes over time to truly characterize your device's performance.
USB and GPIB ports Easily connect to a personal computer for further analysis or into an ATE system with the back-panel USB and GPIB ports; an emulation mode for legacy timer/counters further simplifies integrating into an existing ATE system.
PC Connectivity Control your timer/counter, log data, and simply transfer and document your results with the included copy of NI LabVIEW SignalExpress software.
