I just got my new function generator and Oscilliscope from
Rigol North America. I got both for under $1000 each.
These additions give me generation and measurment
capability to 100MHz. I got the DG4102 100Mhz Function

and their 100MHz Oscilloscope DS1102CA

Both have remote program capability and were easy to setup
and start using.
I found several features on the
Function Generator that I really liked. They had full
sweep Linear and Log, full ARB waveform capability and
white noise output in addition to several standard outputs
like sine, square etc. It has 130 predefined waveforms. So
it has some decent capability.
I ran both Function
generator and Oscope thru their paces and they performed
well. The Function Generator did 100Mhz at several volts
Peak to peak as well as down to 1microHz. Amazing
capability for a box under $1K each. The Oscope was easy
and quick to setup and view the output. I also have FFT
spectral capability on the Oscope so I could see the
harmonic levels as well as the fundamental. These 2
instruments put me well on the way to a full home test
