PicoScope 5203.

The Pico Technology PicoScope 5203 is a 2-channel USB-based PC oscilloscope (and spectrum analyzer and data logger and logic analyzer). It supports a bandwidth of 250 MHz. The max. sampling rate (one-shot) is 1 GS/s (one channel mode) or 500 MS/s (two channel mode). The max. sampling rate for repetitive signals is 20 GS/s, the max. sampling rate in continuous streaming mode is 1 MS/s.

See Pico Technology PicoScope 5203/Info for more details (such as lsusb -vvv output) about the device.
