Remotely Measure and Analyze 32 Oscilloscope Channels with MultiScope

Wednesday, November 25, 2020
Remember in Power Rangers when each of the rangers’ mechs would come together to form the Megazord? We have a new software feature that functions similarly for our oscilloscopes.  On their own our 5 and 6 Series oscilloscopes can each have 8 channels. But if you connect four 8-channel scopes through our Multi-Scope software, you can view, control, and analyze data in real-time from 32 channels. 4 …


TBS1000C bench oscilloscope
How to choose the best oscilloscope Tuesday, May 11, 2021
Oscilloscope bandwidth System bandwidth determines an oscilloscope’s ability to measure a signal. Specifically it determines the maximum frequency that the instrument can accurately measure. Bandwidth is also a key determining factor in price. Determine what you need – use the ‘five times rule’ For example, a 100 MHz oscilloscope is usually guaranteed to have less than 30% attenuation at 100 MHz …

What is an oscilloscope? Tuesday, May 11, 2021
An oscilloscope, formerly known as an oscillograph, is an instrument that graphically displays electrical signals and shows how those signals change over time. It measures these signals by connecting with a sensor, which is a device that creates an electrical signal in response to physical stimuli like sound, light and heat. For instance, a microphone is a sensor that converts sound into an …
Oscilloscope probe connected to a DUT
What is an Oscilloscope Probe? Monday, May 3, 2021
An oscilloscope probe is a device that makes a physical and electrical connection between a test point or signal source and an oscilloscope. Depending on your measurement needs, this connection can be made with something as simple as a length of wire or with something as sophisticated as an active differential probe. Essentially, a probe is some sort of device or network that connects the signal …
DDR5 application from Tektronix
How Does the New Generation Memory – DDR5 – Change Things? Monday, May 3, 2021
From augmented reality to artificial intelligence, cloud computing to IoT, 5G is fueling growth in new technologies – and the data they create. With more and more data comes the need for storage and fast access which means that technology like DDR5 has never been more important. The need for data centers to continuously store, transfer and process this data pushes the limits of high-speed …
Types of signal generators
Types of signal generators Wednesday, April 28, 2021
A signal generator is an analog or digital device that engineers use to create electronic signals when testing circuit designs. There are many different types of signal generators with diverse features and applications. Below are the most common types of signal generators and the unique capabilities of each. Waveform or function generators Waveform generators produce electrical waveforms over a …
Keithley source measure unit with I-V curve tracer functionality alongside the original I-V curve tracer system from 1955.
Curve Tracer vs. I-V Curve Tracer Software Tuesday, April 27, 2021

Tektronix introduced the industry’s first curve tracer in 1955 to display characteristic curves for vacuum tubes, followed over the years by models for testing transistors, diodes and other solid-state devices. Tektronix curve tracers such as the 576 (below) and 370A/370B went on to broad industry acceptance until production eventually stopped in the mid-eighties. Approximating a power supply and an oscilloscope packaged in the same box, curve tracers source voltage while plotting voltage vs. current.

Understanding the New USB4 Standard Test Requirements and Challenges Thursday, April 22, 2021
Since 1996 the Universal Serial Bus (USB) has become the most widely adopted serial interface.  The latest version of the USB Standard, USB4™, was released in 2019 and brings a variety of new challenges like signal integrity, device control and increased test times.    The new USB4 standard introduces 16 new presets, meaning there are now 16 different combinations of transmitter equalization. This …
Chamber for an EMC/EMI precompliance test
The Financial Case for an EMI/EMC Pre-Compliance Test Solution Tuesday, April 20, 2021
Failing EMI compliance testing can be a design engineer’s worst nightmare. Additional compliance testing costs, external lab testing, debug engineering time, and in some cases, board spins can add significant costs and time delays to your project. Unfortunately, for companies new to EMI/EMC, estimating compliance testing cost can be somewhat challenging. In this blog, we’ll provide information on …
An engineer testing power integrity with a Tektronix oscilloscope
5 Key Problems to Solve When Testing Power and Signal Integrity Friday, April 9, 2021
Testing power and signal integrity using an oscilloscope-based solution has some inherent challenges that need to be considered and resolved for optimum performance. We’ll address five of those here, but first let’s take step back and define what we mean by power and signal integrity. Signal integrity (SI) analysis concentrates on the performance of the transmitter, reference clock, channel, and …
Tektronix 5 Series MSO next to a Keysight MXR
4 Things I Noticed about Keysight’s New MXR Oscilloscope Tuesday, April 6, 2021
The Tektronix 5 Series MSO really changed the professional oscilloscope playing field with its large high-definition display, 6 and 8 channel models paired with an intuitive user interface that was designed from the ground up to incorporate touch interactions (pinch zoom, double tap, etc). The 6 Series incorporated these same features with higher bandwidth and improved performance. Keysight …
