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 …
How New Oscilloscope ASICs Enable Higher Resolution Measurements Wednesday, May 20, 2020
Advancements in serial data communications, power management and power conversion technologies have made capturing, observing, and analyzing more intricate signal details crucial for accurate measurements and efficient troubleshooting. Tektronix’s 4, 5, and 6 Series oscilloscopes are meeting that demand by enabling higher resolution with their 12-bit ADC acquisition systems. The goal of this blog …
Making Higher Accuracy Oscilloscope Measurements Thursday, April 23, 2020
One of the most important functional blocks in a digital oscilloscope is the analog-to-digital converter or ADC. This blog post explains why ADC resolution (number of bits) has become a more important consideration in oscilloscopes, especially for measuring small signal details. ADC Resolution FIGURE 1. A generalized signal flow through a digital oscilloscope   Many high-precision instruments …
A 25-Year Legacy of Oscilloscope Probe Innovation Tuesday, March 3, 2020
At Tektronix, we know one of the best ways to help our customers innovate is to innovate ourselves. The infographic below explores our legacy of developing cutting-edge probe technology in the last 25 years. From 1994 – 2004, we were awarded a number of patents for improving low voltage single-ended, low voltage differential, and current probes. Between 2004 and 2014, we also focused our research …
A New Approach to Frequency Analysis on Oscilloscopes, Part 2 Wednesday, July 31, 2019
As discussed in Part 1 of this blog series, the ability to perform spectral analysis on an oscilloscope is limited due to the inherent tradeoffs of FFTs. Overcoming these tradeoffs was a key design goal for Spectrum View. This new capability was made available on 5 and 6 Series MSOs with a recently released firmware upgrade. To understand how Spectrum View works, it is important to note that …
