Tektronix TDS6000 Oscilloscope
Model: TDS6000
Date: 2003
Category: Measurement instruments
Group: Oscilloscope
Description: Digital Storage Oscilloscope

Acquisition Features Separate Digitizers. Ensure accurate timing measurements with separate digitizers for each channel. Acquisition on multiple channels is always concurrent. The digitizers can also be combined to yield a higher sample rate on a single channel. Long Record Lengths. Record lengths from 125,000 points when using channel 1 with 2 or channel 3 with 4, or any three channels, or all 4 channels. Up to 250,000 points when using channel 1 with 3, channel 1 with 4, channel 2 with 3, or channel 2 with 4, or any single channel. Peak Detect Acquisition Mode. See pulses as narrow as 50 ps even at the slower time base settings. Peak detect helps you see noise and glitches in your signal. Acquisition Control. Acquire continuously or set up to capture single shot acquisitions. Enable or disable optional acquisition features such as equivalent time. Horizontal Delay. Use delay when you want to acquire a signal at a significant time interval after the trigger point. Toggle delay on and off to quickly compare the signal at two different points in time. SignalProcessing Features Average, Envelope, and Hi Res Acquisition. Use Average acquisition mode to remove uncorrelated noise from your signal. Use Envelope to capture and display the maximum variation of the signal. Use Hi Res to increase vertical resolution for lower bandwidth signals. Waveform Math. Set up simple math waveforms using the basic arithmetic functions or create more advanced math waveforms using the math expression editor. Waveform expressions can even contain measurement results and other math waveforms. Spectral Analysis. Display spectral magnitude and phase waveforms based on your time-domain acquisitions. Control the Oscilloscope using the traditional spectrum Analyzer controls such as span and center frequency. Display Features Color LCD Display. Identify and differentiate waveforms easily with color coding. Waveforms, readouts, and inputs are color matched to increase productivity and reduce operating errors. Zoom. To take advantage of the full resolution of the Oscilloscope you can zoom in on a waveform to see the fine details. Both vertical and horizontal zoom functions are available. Measurement Features Cursors. Use cursors to take simple voltage, time, and frequency measurements. Automatic Measurements. Choose from a large palette of amplitude, time, and histogram measurements. You can customize the measurements by changing reference levels or by adding measurement gating. Trigger Features Simple and Advanced Trigger Types. Choose simple edge trigger or choose from eight advanced trigger types to help you capture a specific signal fault or event. Dual Triggers. Use the A (main) trigger system alone or add the B trigger to capture more complex events. You can use the A and B triggers together to set up a delay-by-time or delay-by-events trigger condition. Convenience Features Autoset. Use Autoset to quickly set up the vertical, horizontal, and trigger controls for a usable display. Touch Screen Interface. You can operate all Oscilloscope functions (except the power switch) from the touch screen Interface. If convenient, you can also install a mouse and keyboard to use the Interface. Toolbar or Menu Bar. You can choose a toolbar operating mode that is optimized for use with the touch screen, or a PC-style menu-bar operating mode that is optimized for use with a mouse. Open Desktop. The Oscilloscope is built on a Microsoft Windows Software platform; the Oscilloscope application program starts automatically when you apply power to the instrument. You can minimize the Oscilloscope application and take full advantage of the built-in PC to run other applications. Moving waveform images and data into other applications is as simple as a copy/paste operation. Dedicated Front Panel Controls. The front panel contains knobs and buttons to provide immediate access to the most common Oscilloscope controls. Separate vertical controls are provided for each channel. The same functions are also available through the screen Interface. Data Storage and I/O. The Oscilloscope has a removeable hard disk drive, a CD-RW drive, and a floppy disk drive that can be used for storage and retrieval of data. The Oscilloscope has GPIB, USB, Centronics, and Ethernet ports for input and output to other devices. Online Help. The Oscilloscope has a complete online help system that covers all its features. The help system is context sensitive; help for the displayed control window is automatically shown if you touch the help button. Graphical aids in the help windows assist you in getting to the information you need. You can also access the help topics through a table of contents or index.
