TBS1000

Tektronix, the manufacturer of oscilloscopes, has announced the expansion of its TBS1000 series to include three new four-channel models at 60 MHz, 100 MHz and 150 MHz bandwidth. Designed and built by Tektronix, the TBS1000 oscilloscopes are backed by a five-year warranty for years of reliable electronics testing in research and development, education, service and manufacturing applications.

With a full set of the most frequently used measurement types and analysis functions, four-channel TBS1000 oscilloscopes range in price from just $990 US MSRP for a 4-channel 60 MHz model to $1,790 for a 4-channel 150 MHz oscilloscope.

Both the two- and four-channel oscilloscopes include a fully-featured, fully documented programmatic interface for instrument control and data transfer, a waveform logging feature that allows users to log waveforms to a USB flash drive, and a pass/fail mask test that allows a user to specify a tolerance band around the signal and take action if the signal goes outside the band.
