Tektronix (www.tek.com) has unveiled a 100 MHz oscilloscope that boasts efficient performance and affordable pricing. With a maximum real-time sampling rate of 1.25 GS/s, the TDS3012C features a record length of up to 10 kpoints and a vertical resolution of nine bits.
The oscilloscope seamlessly combines 3,600 wfms/s continuous waveform capture rate along with real-time intensity grading, enabling users to easily determine the problem. With high-speed waveform capture rates, time is saved by quickly revealing the nature of faults, allowing the applications of advanced triggers in order to isolate them.
Its real-time intensity grading aims to highlight details on the history of the signal’s activity, making it easier to identify the characteristics of the waveforms captured.
With the TDS3012C, the history stays even after stopping the acquisition — a feature lacking in other oscilloscopes.
The dual channel oscilloscope combines the unique digital real-time (DRT) sampling technology together with the sin(x)/x interpolation to accurately characterize a wider range of signal types on all channels.
Unlike other comparable oscilloscope, the sampling rate does not change when additional channels are turned on. This technology allows the capture of high-frequency information, like edge anomalies and glitches.
The TDS3012C oscilloscope also helps users reduce learning curve, with its time-efficient simple navigation and dedicated front-panel controls.
The oscilloscope also comes equipped with a USB host port that may be used to store and transfer measurement information with ease to a PC.
