Tektronix Expands the Series of Performance Oscilloscopes

Tektronix expands its scalable DPO70000SX Series Performance Oscilloscope to include new 13 GHz and 16 GHz models.

The new offerings benefit engineers to take advantage of the high sample rate and low noise floor of Tektronix’ highest performance family of oscilloscopes at lower bandwidth levels and more affordable price points.

Tektronix Expands

The DPO70000SX Series oscilloscopes were initially developed to test the highest performance, highest speed serial and optical interface standards. The platform brings high-end capabilities to lower speed interfaces such as USB, Display Port, HDMI, LPDDR, MIPI C-PHY, and D-PHY plus legacy server storage applications such as PCI Express Gen 3 and SATA that are widely used in consumer, automotive and military/aerospace applications.

The new 13 GHz and 16 GHz models offer four 50 GS/s sample rate input channels with the unique ability to synchronize up to four scopes for a total of 16 input channels. The UltraSync architecture provides precise data synchronization and convenient operation across multi-unit systems to support applications that require more than four channels. The low profile size fits in a single 3U rackmount space or two oscilloscopes can be stacked in the same space as a single standard bench oscilloscope.

Jon Baldwin, general manager, Wideband Solutions Business Unit, Tektronix, said, “With this introduction, the hardware performance and software analysis tools that were developed for the most challenging high-speed applications are now available at more bandwidth levels to address a wider array of interface technologies and customer use cases.”

The DPO70000SX Series is supported by an extensive range of compliance applications packages that offer the industry’s fastest throughput for standards such as USB, Display Port, HDMI, DDR, LPDDR, MIPI, SATA, PCI Express and other evolving standards allowing engineers to save time, improve productivity and uncover failures quickly. This is augmented by the ability for engineers to seamlessly transition from compliance failures to debugging, using Tektronix’ signal integrity analysis tools.

Characterization of the bit error ratio (BER) of devices requires a breakdown of the impact of both jitter and noise. Tektronix analysis solution tool kit, DPOJET, is well-positioned to meet these needs by providing both jitter and noise analysis displayed using BER contours. The Serial Data Link Analyzer (SDLA) platform, assists in understanding system behavior at various test points simultaneously and helps optimize CTLE/DFE settings to accomplish receiver equalization.

These oscilloscopes also pair seamlessly with Tektronix signal sources including the BSX Series BERTScope, AWG70000B, and AWG5200 Arbitrary Waveform Generator, offering end-to-end system solutions for transmission and receiver testing.


The new 13 GHz DPO71304SX and the 16 GHz DPO71604SX are available now.
