The TDS500C/TDS700C Family of Digitizing Oscilloscopes

The TDS500C/700C oscilloscopes are the latest in the TDS family of digitizing oscilloscopes designed to keep pace with current and evolving needs in advanced electronic design and debug. They are also powerful tools for communication design and R&D applications.

At over 400,000 waveforms per second, the TDS500C and TDS700C products with InstaVu™ Acquisition have the fastest waveform capture rate available on an oscilloscope. They allow you to instantly view even the rarest signal events.

Like the other members of the TDS series, the TDS500C and TDS700C products have a well-rounded combination of a graphical user interface, high-fidelity acquisition, advanced triggering, automatic measurements, and complementary measurement accessories.

EASY TO LEARN AND EASY TO USE

Extensive user interface design has made the TDS family of products truly intuitive to operate. Each family member shares a familiar front-panel layout with dedicated vertical, horizontal, and trigger controls. A graphical user interface with over 200 icons helps facilitate understanding and use of the advanced features. A color monitor helps rapidly distinguish between multiple waveforms and measurements. Online help provides a convenient built-in reference manual.

HIGH-FIDELITY SIGNAL ACQUISITION

The high waveform capture rate of the TDS500C/700C InstaVu series, together with its high bandwidth and sample rate, delivers instantaneous signal feedback to show the true signals that other scopes may be missing. InstaVu acquisition acquires waveforms over 1000 times faster than any other DSO, allowing the capture of intermittent signals, reducing debugging times from hours to seconds.

Channels can be transparently combined to achieve higher sample rates and longer record lengths. The record length can be optionally increased to 8 M points, providing a high-resolution representation of the signal over a long period of time.

All of the TDS products provide wide dynamic range, flat response, fast overdrive recovery, calibrated DC offset, 1 mV/div sensitivity, 1 ns peak detect, and internal calibration.

POWERFUL AND FLEXIBLE TRIGGERING

In addition to basic triggering such as edge and pulse-width, these TDS oscilloscopes have several trigger modes tailored for specific design and debug applications. Logic and pulse triggers, including setup/hold, glitch, slew rate, and time-out triggers, capture hard-to-catch digital design problems. The optional video trigger provides line and field selection for NTSC, PAL, and HDTV standards. The optional comm trigger addresses needs to acquire a wide variety of AMI, CMI, and NRZ communication signals.

ADVANCED PERFORMANCE FEATURES

The TDS products use a Multiprocessor Architecture, which includes a Tektronix TriStar™ digital signal processor and a powerful proprietary display processor, to provide the power for waveform math, high-speed averaging, automatic limit testing, mask testing, live measurements, and variable persistence display.

Color-Graded Variable Persistence - Displays historical information that has been acquired over time. This is especially powerful when used in InstaVu™ mode, where the colors show relatively how often random glitches occur.

Automatic Measurements - Eliminate the need for manually measuring the waveform against the graticule or with cursors. Measurement gating allows the user to select a specific part of the live waveform for measurement. Measurement statistics (min, max, mean, and standard deviation), give additional information about the variations in the measurements over time (for example, worst case excursions), increasing the confidence in the quality of the measurements.

Advanced Waveform Processing - Provides FFT signal analysis and signal integration and differentiation.

Waveform Histograms - Allow the examination of the statistical nature of the signal. Horizontal histograms, which are useful for evaluating signal jitter, sample the waveform within a specified region, sort the values into time bins, and plot the accumulated bin values versus time. Vertical histograms, which are useful for evaluating signal noise, sample the waveform within a specified region, sort the values into amplitude bins, and plot the accumulated bin values versus amplitude.

Limit Testing - Compares acquired or math waveforms against a template "on-the-fly", stopping acquisition, saving to disk, or automatically printing the waveform whenever it violates the template.

Communication Mask Testing (available as an option) - Allows mask compliance testing of a wide variety of communication signals to industry standards. Specialized measurement accessories, unique trigger modes, built-in optical reference receiver filters, mask autoset, and mask violation counting make these measurements easily and repeatedly.

Channel Deskew - Allows increased measurement accuracy by correcting interchannel timing errors up to ±25 ns introduced by propagation delays in circuit probing.

COMPLEMENTARY MEASUREMENT ACCESSORIES

Tektronix provides a wide range of measurement accessories optimized for the TDS family. These accessories are designed to operate by using the TEKPROBE® interface, which provides power and automatic scaling, to complete the TDS measurement solutions.

A SONET/SDH (OC-3/STM-1) signal is compared with the standard mask, showing a compliant waveform.

Active Probes - Designed specifically for the TDS products, such as the P6243 and P6245. For example, the P6245 is capable of achieving the full 1 GHz bandwidth on a 1 GHz TDS while providing low loading (1 pF capacitance and 1 megohm resistance). The low-mass compact design of these probes makes them ideal for hands-free probing of fine-pitch surface-mount devices.

Optical-to-Electrical Converters (P6701B, P6703B) - Allow convenient analysis of optical transmission signals with the oscilloscope. Both short- and long-wavelength optical converters are compatible with the industry-standard wavelengths for SONET/SDH and Fiber Channel.

High-Bandwidth Differential Probes (P6246, P6247) - Enable high bandwidth (up to 1 GHz) differential measurements while maintaining high common-mode rejection. The small probe head design and assorted tip accessories allow easy probing of SMDs. These probes provide low circuit loading and are ESD-rugged.

Current Probes - Allow safe, high-power measurements, such as the TCP202 and High-Voltage Differential Probes such as the P5205 and P5210. Direct Probe Readouts use information from the probes to display measurements in units of Amps, Volts, and Watts.

SOPHISTICATED DOCUMENTATION

Save screen displays in a number of standard desktop publishing formats to the internal 3.5-in. DOS-compatible floppy disk drive. Transfer the disk to a PC for import into word processing applications. Make hard copies directly to monochrome or color printers and plotters connected to the GPIB, RS-232, or Centronics ports, or acquire waveforms, screen displays, and scope settings using Tektronix WaveStar™ software running on a PC interfaced to the GPIB port.
