These series of Digital Oscilloscopes use a standard ARM9 processor and are shipped with linux. The various models can be hacked to add additional features. These pages aim to document as much as possible to foster a wider community of developers for these DSO's.



  • 7" 800 x 480 color LCD Display
  • Samsung S3C2440 ARM9 System On Chip (SoC)
  • ISSI IS42S16160C-7TLI SDRAM (2 x 256Mbit = 64Mbyte)
  • Samsung K9F1208U0C Nand Flash (1 x 512Mbit = 64Mbyte)
  • ISSI IS61LPS25636A static ram ( 1 x 9Mbit = 1.125Mbyte)
  • Altera MAX-II EPM240T100C5N CPLD (complex Programmable Logic Devices)
  • 4 x Analog Devices AD9288 ADCs (yes, for 1GSs overclocked to 125MHz in 8ns, 4ns and 2ns time base - like Instek GDS1102A)
  • 2 x Analog Devices AD8370 amps (750MHz bw - input stage like Rigol)
  • 2 x TI LMH6552 amps (1.5GHz bw - input stage like Rigol)
  • Analog Devices ADCMP562 ECL comparator (for trigger)
  • Altera Cyclone III FPGA (ADC sampling control and data acquisition)


  • Linux Kernel version 2.6 from reports
  • need more details and bootlog
  • current firmware from Hantek
To decrypt firmware update:
- download the .up file from Hantek/Tekway website
- download and install GPG
- run gpg -d dstxxxxxxx.up > dstxxxxxx.gz (when asked for password type 0571tekway)
- gunzip the dstxxxxxx.gz
- untar the resulting file (it is dstxxxxxx. )
- untar again the resulting DST1000_4000.tar

To create new/custom firmware
- tar the folder "tekwayup_client" and the upend file to dst1000_4000.up.tar
- tar the resulting dst1000_4000.up.tar to DST1KB_version.tar and remove the .tar extension
  (for example dst1kb_2.06.8(101231.0) )
- Gzip the DST1KB_version to DST1KB_version.gz and remove the .gz extension
- encrypt with gpg -c DST1KB_version (when asked for key type 0571tekway)
- Rename the resulting DST1KB_version.gpg to DST1KB_version.up

What important to know :
- if you type/use wrong password or Tekway/Hantek change the password, your DSO will still not get bricked because the update will get canceled
- use "move" instead of "copy" in "update" script (or chmod 777 filename after copy)
- ensure that whatever inside folder "tekwayup_client" is listed in upend file too
(this means the "upend" file is a list of files and folders contained in "tekwayup_client" folder - but not subfolders and subfiles!)

Open Linux Support Todo List

  • lodge a GPL compliance complaint against Hantek
  • get u-boot working
  • get current 3.x kernel booting
  • cpld interface driver
  • lcd display driver
