I design a scope using EMWIN software in GUI , it took 1uS to input the sample data and took 13uS to draw the graph . In this speed is it sufficient fast enough to process 20M bandwidth of signal ??

I can explain this to you. I can't comprehend it for you.

1 uS sample rate is OK for 500 kHz BW. U need sample rate freq of minimum 2x BW.

Nyquist theorem is great, but, notice that decent oscilloscopes sample much higher than 2x the bandwidth.  10x is a good place to start to avoid any scaling and processing needs.  Fancy scopes with complex sampling algo's will drop to as low as 3-5x the bandwidth.  It also makes things like anti-aliasing much easier too.

Here's a nice white paper from agilent justifying going as low as 2.5x the bandwidth, but not all the way down to 2x (http://cp.literature.agilent.com/litweb/pdf/5990-9923EN.pdf)

I think you should better to consider the speed of LCD display, and then is amount of screen pixel points.
for the Nyquist_frequency, I think it means sine-wave only.

but if you only want to display square wave or logic pulse wave, it seems that no need to consider Nyquist_frequency.

May be I expressed the wrong meaning, sorry for my bad english. Please correct it for me if you can.

<sigh>

All of you are confusing sample rate with bandwidth.

He gave the sample rate, not the signalpath bandwidth.

On repetitive signals you can get away with undersampling with a sampling scope.

If it's a realtime scope, then Nyquist holds.

He didn't say which kind of scope he was building or the nature of the signal....
