Tektronix, Inc., announced the DPO/DSA/MSO70000C Series of digital and mixed signal oscilloscopes that now deliver 100 GS/s sampling rate performance; enabling low noiser along with increased data points on 5x oversampled 20 GHz acquisitions. This over-sampling performance in a high bandwidth oscilloscope delivers accurate signal integrity measurements for such high-speed serial standards as PCI Express Gen 3. Other features include a new, faster compute platform and a more stable timebase for radar applications. Along with a two-fold increase in sampling rate compared to the “B” Series it replaces, the DPO/DSA/MSO70000C Series features a faster compute platform. This new platform offers faster processing for longer data records such as jitter, noise, BER (bit error rate) measurements and statistics. Boot and application start up times are also significantly quicker. As shown by extensive comparison testing, the DPO/DSA/MSO70000C Series with 100 GS/s operation delivers up to 20 percent reduction in noise compared to the 50 GS/s setting on the same instrument.
