Tektronix TDS3052C Two-Channel Digital Phosphor Oscilloscope
Model Number: TDS3052C
The Tektronix TDS3052C 500 MHz, 2-Channel, 5 GS/s Digital Phosphor Oscilloscope packs the power of a DPO in a compact design that is only 5.9 in. (149 mm) deep, freeing up valuable benchtop space. And when you need to move your oscilloscope to another lab, its portable 7 lb. (3.2 kg) design makes for easy transport. The Tektronix TDS3052C offers fast waveform capture rates on a continuous basis that save you time by quickly revealing the nature of faults, so advanced triggers can be applied to isolate them. Real-time intensity grading highlights the details about the history of a signal's activity, making it easier to understand the characteristics of the waveforms you've captured. Unlike other comparable oscilloscopes, the history remains even after the acquisition has been stopped. The Tektronix TDS3052C combines unique digital real-time (DRT) sampling technology with sin(x)/x interpolation to allow you to accurately characterize a wide range of signal types on all channels simultaneously. With the TDS3052C there is no change in sampling rate when additional channels are turned on. This sampling technology makes it possible to capture high-frequency information, such as glitches and edge anomalies, that elude other oscilloscopes in its class, while sin(x)/x interpolation ensures precise reconstruction of each waveform. The Tektronix TDS3052C comes equipped with a USB host port so you can easily store and transfer measurement information to your PC. OpenChoice PC Communication Software allows you to simply pull screen images and waveform data into a standalone desktop application or directly into Microsoft Word and Excel. If you prefer not to use a PC for analysis, the Tektronix TDS3052C comes standard with 25 automatic measurements, waveform add, subtract, divide, and multiply math functions, and Fast Fourier Transform (FFT). Unlike other comparable oscilloscopes, the TDS3052C math and measurement allows you to use the full acquisition record length or isolate a specific occurrence within an acquisition.
