Digital phosphor scope gets enhancements

25 September 2002 Test & Measurement

Tektronix has made some enhancements to its TDS7000 Series DPOs, now being delivered on all new instruments. The new features and options address customers, concerns with signal integrity, serial bus architectures, and today's time-to-market deadlines. Due to the flexible open Windows architecture of Tektronix DPOs, the company says most of the enhancements are fully compatible with existing, installed TDS7000 and CSA7000 Series instruments.

Hardware enhancements include: brighter display, improved touch-screen; built-in CD-RW drive standard on all models; external reference input on all models (new for TDS7054 and TDS7104); 512 MB Windows PC RAM in all models.

Software enhancements include enhanced analysis and connectivity. Optional are: serial mask testing; serial pattern trigger; communications pulse mask testing; jitter analysis; USB 2.0 compliance test package.

Among the user interface enhancements are: Autoset Undo function; waveform database for statistical measurements; set measurement attributes individually or globally; momentary readouts for intensity, resolution momentarily displays intensity level and record length when control knob is turned; extra user-defined customisable palette for waveform colour; save all waveforms function; center frequency controls span; phase spectrum is now dejittered to measure accurately to Nyquist frequency; maximum FFT length is now up to 2 MB - 30% faster.
