Tektronix DPO4000, DPO4032, DPO4034, DPO4054, DPO4104 Digital Phosphor Oscilloscopes
Debug Smarter, Not Harder!
The DPO4000 Series digital phosphor oscilloscopes deliver the performance you need to visualize even your most demanding signals. Bandwidths range from 350 MHz to 1 GHz, and with all models offering a minimum of 5-times over-sampling on all channels and sin(x)/x interpolation standard, you can be confident that even the fastest transient events will be captured and displayed accurately. The standard 10 M record length on all channels enables you to capture long windows of signal activity while maintaining fine timing resolution. The DPO4000 Series offers a variety of analytical solutions including cursors, 25 automatic measurements, statistics and waveform math. Despite a tiny footprint of only 5.4" deep and light weight of 11 lbs., the DPO4000 Series offers exceptional performance, a large 10.4" XGA display and knob per channel vertical controls.
Wave Inspector Controls
The DPO4000 Series redefines expectations for working with long record lengths with these innovative Wave Inspector controls:
Zoom/Pan. A dedicated, two-tier knob provides intuitive control of both zooming and panning. The inner knob adjusts zoom factor or scale. The outer knob pans the zoom box across the waveform. The farther you turn the outer knob, the faster the zoom box moves. No longer do you need to navigate through multiple menus to adjust your zoom view.
Play/Pause. A dedicated play/pause button scrolls the waveform automatically while you look for anomalies or an event of interest. Playback speed and direction are controlled using the intuitive pan knob.
User Marks. See something interesting on your waveform? Press the Set Mark button on the front panel to leave one or more “bookmarks” on the waveform. Navigating between marks is as simple as pressing the Previous and Next buttons on the front panel.
Search Marks. A robust waveform search feature allows you to search through your long acquisition based on user-defined criteria. All occurrences of the event are highlighted with search marks and are easily navigated to, using the front panel Previous and Next buttons. Search types include edge, pulse width, runt, logic, setup and hold, rise/fall time and I2C, SPI and CAN packet content.
Serial Triggering and Analysis
TekVPI - The New Standard for Eade of Probing
The new TekVPI™ probe interface sets the standard for ease of use in probing. TekVPI probes feature status indicators and controls, as well as a probe menu button right on the comp box. This button brings up a probe menu on the oscilloscope display with all relevant settings and controls for the probe. The TekVPI interface utilizes a new probe power management architecture enabling direct attachment of current probes without requiring a separate, bulky power supply. Finally, TekVPI probes can be controlled remotely via USB, GPIB or Ethernet, enabling more versatile solutions in ATE environments.
Unprecedented USP Connectivity
The DPO4000 Series delivers an unprecedented new level of USB plug n play operation and PC connectivity. Acquiring data and measurements from the instrument is as simple as connecting a USB cable from the oscilloscope to the PC. Provided applications include National Instruments SignalExpress Tektronix Edition, OpenChoice® Desktop, and Microsoft Excel and Word toolbars enabling fast and easy direct communication with your Windows PC. USB and CompactFlash ports on the front panel enable simple transfer of screenshots, instrument settings, and waveform data in the palm of your hand.
Digital Design and Debug Applications
The interoperability of the DPO4000 Series oscilloscope with the Tektronix TLA5000 Series logic analyzer made possible by Tektronix’ Integrated View (iView™) feature enables digital designers to solve signal integrity challenges and effectively debug and verify their systems more quickly and easily. The iView feature fully integrates the industry-leading performance and measurement accuracy of a Tektronix oscilloscope with the multi-channel and powerful triggering capabilities of a Tektronix logic analyzer. This integration allows designers to view time-correlated digital and analog data in the same display window, and isolate analog characteristics of digital signals that are causing failures in their systems. The iView Wizard feature simplifies this integration of the oscilloscope and logic analyzer by guiding the user through set up and connection. No user calibration is required. And, once set up, the iView feature is completely automated. The result - an integrated tool set for digital design and troubleshooting. (Requires iView cable and Tek-USB-488 converter).
Video Design and Development Applications
Many video engineers have remained loyal to analog oscilloscopes, believing the intensity gradations on an analog display are the only way to see certain video waveform details. The DPO4000 Series' fast waveform capture rate coupled with its intensity graded view of the signal provides the same information-rich display as an analog oscilloscope, but with much more detail and all the benefits of digital scopes. With up to 1 GHz bandwidth and four inputs, the DPO4000 family provides ample performance for analog and digital video use.
National Instruments SignalExpress Tektronix Edition. A fully interactive measurement software environment optimized for the DPO4000 Series enables you to instantly acquire, generate, analyze, compare, import and save measurement data and signals using an intuitive drag-and-drop user interface that does not require any programming. Standard DPO4000 Series support for acquiring, controlling, viewing and exporting your live signal data is permanently available through the software. Additional signal processing, advanced analysis, mixed signal, sweeping, limit testing and user-defined step capabilities are available for a 30-day trial period.
OpenChoice® Desktop. Enables fast and easy communication between a Windows PC and the DPO4000 Series via USB or LAN. Transfer and save settings, waveforms, measurements and screen images.
TekXL and TekW Toolbars. Integrated into Microsoft Office and allow you to transfer waveforms and plot measurements using Excel and capture screen images in a Word document.
TekVISA™. Remote control/communications over GPIB, USB and Ethernet. Includes a Talker Listener to record and replay scripts for automating common tasks, an Instrument Manager and a Call Monitor for logging communications to the instrument.
IVI Driver. Provides a standard instrument programming interface for common applications such as LabVIEW, LabWindows/CVI, Microsoft .NET and MATLAB.
