Digital phosphor oscilloscope measures in real time

The TDS500 monochrome and 700D color series of digital phosphor oscilloscopes provide three dimensions of signal information--amplitude, time, and distribution of amplitude over time. They can simultaneously display, store, and analyze complex electronic signals in real time. Their parallel processing DPX waveform imaging processor simultaneously employs three different methods for creating the digital phosphor and resulting real-time intensity-graded displays--repeated drawing, compression, an

Digital phosphor oscilloscope measures in real time

The TDS500 monochrome and 700D color series of digital phosphor oscilloscopes provide three dimensions of signal information--amplitude, time, and distribution of amplitude over time. They can simultaneously display, store, and analyze complex electronic signals in real time. Their parallel processing DPX waveform imaging processor simultaneously employs three different methods for creating the digital phosphor and resulting real-time intensity-graded displays--repeated drawing, compression, and slew-rate weighting. Multiple images of signal information are shown in 500 ¥ 200 ¥ 21 arrays. Seven oscillopscope models cover bandwidths to 2 GHz, 2 to 4 channels, sample rates of 1 to 4 Gsamples/s, and maximum record lengths of 2 million to 8 million, and price ranges from $9760 to $34,995.
