Tektronix TDS5054B-NV-AV

Product Description:

Tektronix TDS5054B-NV-AV 500MHz, 5GSa/s, 4ch Digital Oscilloscope w/Touch Screen and 8yr. Warranty

The Tektronix TDS5054B-NV-AV oscilloscope is a graph-displaying device – it draws a graph of an electrical signal. In most applications, the graph shows how signals change over time: the vertical (Y) axis represents voltage and the horizontal (X) axis represents time. The intensity or brightness of the display is sometimes called the Z axis.

The Tektronix TDS5054B-NV-AV oscilloscope's simple graph can tell you many things about a signal, such as: the time and voltage values of a signal, the frequency of an oscillating signal, the “moving parts” of a circuit represented by the signal, the frequency with which a particular portion of the signal is occurring relative to, other portions, whether or not a malfunctioning component is distorting the signal, how much of a signal is direct current (DC) or alternating current (AC) and how much of the signal is noise and whether the noise is changing with time.

The TDS5054B-NV-AV digital phosphor oscilloscopes (DPO) delivers 500 MHz bandwidth, 5 GS/s real-time sample rate, 8 M record length, and a suite of advanced triggers. DPOs provide unmatched insight into signal behavior by displaying, storing and analyzing complex signals in real-time using three dimensions of signal information: amplitude, time and distribution of amplitude over time. The TDS5054B-NV-AV delivers greater than 100,000 waveforms per second capture rates. Some oscilloscope vendors claim high waveform capture rates for short bursts of time, but only DPOs, enabled by Tektronix proprietary DPX® acquisition technology, can deliver these fast waveform capture rates on a sustained basis-saving minutes, hours or even days by quickly revealing the nature of faults so sophisticated trigger modes can be applied to isolate them.The TDS5054B-NV-AV includes a complete parametric measurement system for signal characterization. Select from 53 automatic measurements using a graphical palette that logically organizes measurements into Amplitude, Time, Combination, Histogram, and Communications categories. Gather further insight into your measurement results with statistical data such as mean, min, max, standard deviation, and population. Waveform cursors make it easy to measure trace-to-trace timing characteristics, while cursors that link between YT and XY display modes make it easy to investigate phase relationships and Safe Operating Area violations. Define and apply math expressions to waveform data for on-screen results in terms that you can use. Access common waveform math functions with the touch of a button. Or, for advanced applications, create algebraic expressions consisting of waveforms sources, math functions, measurement values, scalars, and user adjustable variables with an easy-to-use calculator-style editor.
