Oscilloscope Selection Guide


From basic signal-checking to high-performance analysis, this selection guide gives an overview of the complete range of oscilloscopes from Tektronix. Comparison tables give high-level specifications and features, and indicate the major differences between each series of oscilloscope. It also includes a matrix showing serial protocols supported by each Tektronix oscilloscope series.

OSCILLOSCOPES

Tektronix offers oscilloscopes for many different applications and uses. To help you choose the right scope for your needs, the most common criteria for selecting a scope are listed below, along with helpful tips for determining your requirements.

Choosing Your Oscilloscope

Bandwidth

All oscilloscopes have a low-pass frequency response that rolls off at higher frequencies. Oscilloscope bandwidth is specified as the frequency at which a sinusoidal input signal is attenuated to 70.7% of the signal’s true amplitude – the -3 dB point. Choose an oscilloscope with sufficient bandwidth to capture all relevant frequency components of your signal. For signals with well-defined edges it can take 5 to 7 times the frequency of the fundamental frequency to accurately represent the signal. If you work with digital signals, it may be easier to compare your signal rise times to oscilloscope rise time specifications.

FIG 01. Square waves and pulses include higher frequencies than the fundamental frequency
Square waves and pulses include higher frequencies than the fundamental frequency

Input Channels

Having more input channels lets you see more of what’s going on in your design. Today’s oscilloscopes offer more than just 2 or 4 analog input channels.

  • Newer scopes are available with up to 6 or 8 input channels
  • Mixed signal oscilloscopes offer digital channels to expand visibility beyond the analog channels available on the instrument
  • If you are working with RF signals, the Tektronix MDO Series of mixed domain oscilloscopes offers a built-in spectrum analyzer.

Sample Rate

The faster an oscilloscope samples, the greater the resolution and detail of the displayed waveform, and the less likely that critical information or events will be lost. Your oscilloscope must sample at least twice as fast as the highest frequencies in your signals. Remember that digital signals with fast edges include harmonic frequencies that can be several times higher than the fundamental.

Record Length

Record length is the number of samples the oscilloscope can digitize and store in a single acquisition. Since an oscilloscope can store only a limited number of samples, the waveform duration – or length of “time” captured – will be inversely proportional to the oscilloscope’s sample rate. A longer record length enables a longer time window to be captured with high resolution.

Captured Time = (Record Length) / (Sample Rate)

Vertical Resolution

The resolution of an oscilloscope's analog-to-digital converters determines its ability to capture and measure signal detail. 12-bit converters measures 4096 levels while 8-bit converters measure 256 levels.

Features and Analysis Capability

Tektronix oscilloscopes offer a range of features and analysis capabilities. When choosing your scope, you should review available triggers, waveform search tools, automated measurements, and analysis packages such as serial bus analysis, jitter and power analysis to ensure they meet your needs.

Introducing the 3 Series MDO and 4 Series MSO

These new oscilloscopes feature big, crisp 1920 x 1080 displays and the same built-for-touch user interface as the award-winning 5 Series MSO. The 4 Series offers up to 6 FlexChannel® inputs, while the 3 Series offers a choice of a 1 GHz or 3 GHz built-in spectrum analyzer. Now there’s a next-generation scope for every engineer.

3 Series MDO and 4 Series MSO

TYPES OF OSCILLOSCOPES

Mixed Signal Oscilloscopes – 70 MHz to 33 GHz

The engineer’s choice for design and debug. They combine traditional oscilloscope input channels with digital input channels, long record length with powerful search features, and protocol support for serial buses.

Mixed Domain Oscilloscopes – 100 MHz to 1 GHz

For design and debug work, they offer the same capabilities as mixed signal oscilloscopes, but also offer a built-in spectrum analyzer, adding RF debugging to the analog/digital capabilities.

Advanced Signal Analysis Oscilloscopes – 350 MHz to 70 GHz

The emphasis is on analysis. They provide high acquisition performance and run Windows, thus supporting a wide range of analysis software. MSO versions include digital channels. They can be equipped for serial data analysis, jitter analysis, standards testing, and serial decoding capability.

High-Speed Digitizers DC to 8 GHz

When performance, channel density and cost-per-channel are critical, these low-profile instruments are a great fit. They offer the same performance as bench instruments in a rack-friendly form factor.

Sampling Oscilloscopes – DC to 80 GHz

For very high speed signal analysis, both electrical and optical, our sampling oscilloscopes support jitter and noise analysis with ultra-low jitter acquisitions. They also perform TDR and S-parameter measurements.

Basic Oscilloscopes – 30 MHz to 200 MHz

For basic signal visualization and more, these instruments are solid performers with ample supporting materials, and generous warranties. Special features for education.

Battery Powered Oscilloscopes with Isolated Channels – 100 MHz to 200 MHz

Safely and easily make 4-channel floating measurements, including 3-phase power measurements.

TDS Series Oscilloscopes – 50 MHz to 500 MHz

These capable industry-favorites have a large installed base, and thousands of companies rely on them as part of their test and measurement fleets. They continue to be fully supported.
