Families biking in Beaverton Oregon near the Tektronix campus
Living and Working in Beaverton Sunday, February 7, 2021
Tektronix moved into ­­­its campus in Beaverton, Oregon in May, 1959, and has been a staple in the community ever since. The company is Oregon’s first high technology firm and was instrumental to the creation of the “Silicon Forest”. Located about 20 minutes west of downtown Portland and just an hour from the Oregon Coast, Beaverton offers the allure of a diverse, big city and the quality of life …

Speeding up Failure Analysis using Lock-in Thermography Thursday, February 4, 2021
Semiconductor companies and semiconductor researchers are constantly looking for ways to make devices fail in the lab in order to prevent failures in the field. Countless hours are spent by failure analysis (FA) engineers trying to understand why a device failed and how it can be prevented in the future. This is vital as many devices are used in mission critical applications where “failure is not …

3 Important Insights from Simultaneous Frequency and Time Analysis Thursday, January 28, 2021
Debugging embedded systems often involves looking for clues that are hard to discover just by looking at one domain at a time. The ability to look at time and frequency domains simultaneously can offer important insights. Mixed-domain analysis is especially useful for answering questions such as: What’s going on with my power rail voltage when I’m transmitting wireless data? Where are …
Well defined pulses like these are a rarity in the real world.
Never Miss a Pulse Wednesday, December 2, 2020
The RF pulse characteristics of a radar reveal a great deal about a its capability. Electronic Warfare (EW) and Electronic lntelligence (ELINT) experts specialize in the study of these pulsed signals. Pulse characteristics provide valuable information about the type of radar producing a signal and what its source might be; sailboat, battleship, passenger plane, bomber, missile, etc. But how do you …
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 …

3 Ways to Generate Radar Signals with Arbitrary Waveform Generators Friday, October 30, 2020
Radar signals’ qualities make them inherently difficult to recreate with a signal generator. Their combination of carrier frequency, modulation bandwidth, and in most cases, their pulsed nature creates a series of requirements difficult to match with existing instrumentation. The increasing complexity of radar systems, the growing use of complex modulation techniques such as Barker codes, poly …

Recreating Real-World Chaos with Arbitrary Waveform Generators Friday, October 16, 2020
When testing complex electronic warfare and wireless communications systems, engineers and researchers need the flexibility to accurately recreate real-world signals. Unfortunately, the real world is messy, and its RF landscape can change rapidly from moment to moment. Thus, engineers often need to cycle through fast-changing signals quickly. With this need in mind, we’ve introduced new Streaming …
Tektronix engineers who developed the new 6 Series B MSO
Behind the Scenes: Tek Engineers Describe the Making of the 6 Series B Oscilloscope Wednesday, September 30, 2020
The brand new 6 Series B MSO oscilloscope is out, setting new standards for performance, noise and accuracy in the test and measurement industry. Launched in extraordinary times, the 6 Series B MSO has been a labor of love for many of our engineers, who found new ways to collaborate and innovate solutions under the impact of a quarantine. As engineers themselves, Tektronix developers are …
4 Important Upgrades to the 6 Series Mixed Signal Oscilloscope Friday, September 25, 2020
Constant improvement is at the heart of engineering. From computers and cars to bridges and buildings, the goal of an engineer is to make it faster, stronger, more accurate, more efficient than before. As engineers ourselves, we’re constantly looking for ways we can improve and upgrade our own products. The brand new 6 Series B Mixed Signal Oscilloscope is a perfect example. Read on to learn 4 key …

5 Parameters for Measuring Radar Pulses Friday, September 18, 2020
Radar systems can use continuous wave (CW) signals or, more commonly, low duty-cycle pulsed signals. Although there are several continuous transmission types of radar, primarily Doppler, the great majority of radars are pulsed. The RF pulse characteristics reveal a great deal about a radar's capability. Electronic Warfare (EW) and Electronic lntelligence (ELINT) experts specialize in the study of …
