Digital Sampling Oscilloscope
The TDS8000 digital sampling oscilloscope offers the widest range of on-board measurement and waveform-processing capabilities of any ultra-high bandwidth oscilloscope. With excellent measurement repeatability, exceptional vertical resolution and fast waveform acquisition and display update rates, the TDS8000 is a powerful measurement tool for semiconductor testing, TDR characterization of circuit boards, IC packages and cables and high-speed digital communications
The 8000 Series state-of-the-art timebase provides equivalent time sweep speeds from 0.5 ps/div to 5 ms/div with record lengths from 20 to 4000 points and a sample interval of 10 femtoseconds (0.01 ps). In addition, 8000 Series sampling oscilloscopes’ timebases can be locked to a 10 MHz reference providing greater long-term stability. This capability also allows multiple TDS8000s to be synchronized to other test equipment and/or the device-under-test.
The TDS8000 offers two magnification windows, whereby sections of the main trace are re-acquired at higher resolution for closer examination of details.
The TDS8000 boasts the highest sample rate among sampling oscilloscopes. Its multi-processor architecture, with dedicated per channel Digital Signal Processors (DSP), guarantees the highest waveform acquisition rates regardless of the number of channels acquired or waveform processing done.
