October 27, 2010 ‚Äì Tektronix introduced the TDS2000C Series oscilloscopes at a starting price of $990. With models ranging from 50 MHz to 200 MHz bandwidth, and with two or four channels, the Tektronix TDS2000C Series gives engineers the performance they need at an affordable price. All models include easy connectivity with USB ports, an expanded set of 16 automated measurements, a new limit test feature, intuitive operation with built-in help menus, and the industry‚Äôs only lifetime warranty.The TDS2000C Series starts at $990 for a 50 MHz model with 2 channels. Every model in the TDS2000C Series features digital real-time sampling with at least 10X oversampling on every channel. The sample rate doesn‚Äôt reduce as additional channels are turned on, ensuring that each channel can accurately capture signals up to the oscilloscope‚Äôs full bandwidth.New Functionality Boosts ProductivityWith a compact and portable design, the TDS2000C Series delivers a strong feature set that makes it ideal for a range of uses including design and debug, education, manufacturing test, quality control, service and repair. A simple user interface includes innovative features such as the autoset menu, built-in help system, probe check wizard, and optimized instrument setup and operation. Special features include advanced triggering to quickly capture events coupled with advanced math capabilities and now 16 automated measurements for fast analysis.New capabilities in the TDS2000C Series designed to boost productivity include datalogging and limit testing. After a user has configured trigger conditions, datalogging makes it possible for the oscilloscope to save all the triggered waveforms together with time stamp information to a USB flash drive within a user-defined duration (up to 8 hours). This is useful for applications that require engineers to monitor devices for long time periods for characterization and stress testing, while saving the measurement results for later analysis. Ideal for manufacturing applications, the limit test function can be used to quickly identify problems and alert a production line operator when an input signal falls outside of a predefined mask. Without this function, operators would need to watch carefully and manually compare measurement data with printed criteria. Pricing and AvailabilityPricing starts at $990 U.S. MSRP including the Limited Tektronix Edition of National Instruments‚Äô SignalExpress software and a lifetime warranty. The oscilloscopes are available through authorized distributors or directly from the Tektronix online store.
