switch and display could be shared between both. That would both save costs
and make them more compact.
I'm alsoNow I've got the same -- the PG506 for $100. My TG501 is a little ailing in
that the <10ns ranges don't seem to work. The SG503 works fine, although the
frequency counter seems to loose sensitivity at higher frequencies. It won't
count when amplitude is "low", although it does when the frequency is set to
a lower value.
I haven't yet had time to fix those up (they are otherwise in-spec calibration
wise, quirks accounted for). The PG506 will need work, as it has known
defects, but I'm enjoying this a lot.
I also have a type 106 and type 184, which were the previous generationExcept for overlaid timing pulses, I don't think that there's anything that I
miss on TG501. SG503 also does its job.
