Tektronix (www.tek.com) offers the TDS3014C oscilloscope which is part of the TDS3000C Digital Phosphor Oscilloscope (DPO) Series, offering a credible performance and affordable price in one package.
With an analog bandwidth of 100 MHz and a sampling rate of 1.25 GS/s, the TDS3014C oscilloscope offers efficient performance that visualize fast-changing signals in a compact and battery-capable design. The oscilloscope is easy to use as it has dedicated front-panel controls and 25 automatic measurements.
The 4-channel TDS3014C has a record length of 10 Kpoints. It has a digital real-time sampling that precisely captures signals with no less than five times oversampling. Its digital phosphor display helps to quickly capture and visualize glitches as well as infrequent events, offering high waveform capture rate along with intensity-graded display. It also captures digital signal anomalies with runt, glitch, rise/fall-time, in addition to setup/hold violation triggers.
The dedicated front-panel controls cut son time learning and boosts the time to carry out the task at hand. With the front-panel USB host port, the oscilloscope quickly stores and transfers the users’ waveforms. Results can then be transferred, analyzed and documented in easily to a PC with NI LabVIEW SignalExpress™ TE and Tektronix OpenChoice® Desktop software.
An optional battery pack is also available enabling the user to work outdoors within up to three hours operating on battery.
The oscilloscope integrates clever digital real-time (DRT) sampling technology with sin(x)/x interpolation in order to allow an accurate characterization of a wide range of signal types simultaneously on all channels. When additional channels are turned on, there is no change in sampling rate, compared to other oscilloscopes. This technology enables high frequency information to be captured accurately.
