    STATISTICS AND MATH Sample Size: Selectable between either N = 100 or N = 1000 samples.
    Std. Dev.: Displays a standard deviation of selected sample size.
    Mean: Displays mean estimate of selected sample size.
    Smooth: Performs a weighted running average and truncates unstable least significant digits form display.
    NOTE: Statistics functions performed after Math functions.
    Math: All measurement functions with exception of GATE TIME, TOTALIZE in scale mode, and TRIG LVL, may be operated upon by Math functions. Offset, Normalize, and Scale may be used independently or together.
    GENERAL Function Memory: Front panel settings for Math, Statistics, Range Hold, Ext. Arm Enable, Gate, and Cycle stored for current function and immediately preceding function. GATE TIME and TRIG LVL do not affect memory.
    Cycle: Determines delay between measurements.
    NORM: No more than 4 readings per second NOMINAL.
    MIN: Minimum gate time. Actual time depends on function. For FREQ A, (FREQ B), FREQ C, and PER A, minimum gate time = (one period or input) x (prescale factor).

    Overflow: All measurements which would theoretically cause a display of more than 12 digits will display 12 most significant digits.
    Operating Temperature: 0 to 50 degrees C.
    Power Requirements: 100, 120, 220, 240 VAC (+5%, -10%), 48-66 Hz, 130 VA max.

    Selectable Resolution Digital gate time selection makes it easy to trade off resolution and measurement time. Resolution is 9 digits per second of gate time to 100 MHz for period and 200 MHz for frequency.
    Measurements In addition to standard universal counter measurements of frequency, period, time interval, ratio and totalize, the 5335A provides pulse width, rise and fall time, duty syscle, slew rate, relative phase, and inverse time interval.
    External Arming External arming/gating allows synchronization with external events. This feature lets you easily make pulsed RF communications and radar signal measurements to 1.3 GHz.
    Full Function Two ratio functions of A/B and C/A use the full bandwidth, sensitivity, and input signal conditioning controls of the A, B, and C input channels.
