- Tektronix has announced the extension of its range of high-performance oscilloscopes in the DPO70000SX series.
- Two models offering a frequency band of 13 GHz and 16 GHz respectively complete its range of high-end oscilloscopes.
According to Tektronix, these new instruments aim to take advantage of the high sampling frequencies and low noise levels of the DPO70000SX oscilloscope family, the most efficient in its offer, at lower bandwidth levels and therefore at more affordable prices.
The DPO70000SX series oscilloscopes were initially developed to test the fastest optical and serial interface standards on the market. With these two new models, Tektronix brings these high-end features to the testing of low-speed interfaces such as USB, Display Port, HDMI, LPDDR, MIPI C-PHY and D-PHY, as well as existing server-based storage applications such as PCI Express Gen 3 and SATA.
The DPO71304SX model with 13 GHz bandwidth and the DPO71604SX model with 16 GHz are equipped with four input channels sampled at a maximum frequency of 50 GS/s.
Up to four oscilloscopes can be synchronized to design a 16-channel acquisition system. The UltraSync architecture ensures the synchronization of this multi-channel set.
Its form factor allows it to be installed in a single 3U rack or to superimpose two oscilloscopes in the same space as a single standard bench oscilloscope.
The DPO70000SX series can support a wide range of standard compliance applications such as USB, Display Port, HDMI, DDR, LPDDR, MIPI, SATA, PCI Express….
Compliance issues can be detected using the proposed Tektronix signal integrity analysis and debugging tools. The DPOJET software solution allows jitter and noise analyses to be performed using BER (bit error ratio) contours. The Serial Data Link Analyzer (SDLA) platform helps to understand system behavior at different test points simultaneously and optimize CTLE/DFE settings to achieve receiver equalization.
