The TDS3000B Series of Digital Phosphor Oscilloscopes Provides Unmatched Performance and Portability at an Affordable Price
The TDS3000B Series packs the power of a DPO, digital real-time (DRT) sampling technology, WaveAlert waveform anomaly detection, OpenChoice documentation and analysis solutions, and five application-specific modules into a lightweight, battery-capable design.
A DPO Provides a Greater Level of Insight into Complex Signals
The TDS3000B Series DPO delivers 3,600 wfms/s continuous waveform capture rate to capture glitches and infrequent events three times faster than comparable oscilloscopes. Some oscilloscope vendors claim high waveform capture rates for short bursts of time, but your oscilloscope needs to deliver these fast waveform capture rates on a continuous basis – saving minutes, hours, or even days by quickly revealing the nature of faults so advanced triggers can be applied to isolate them.
In addition, the TDS3000B DPO's real-time intensity grading highlights the details about the "history" of a signal's activity, making it easier to understand the characteristics of the waveforms you've captured.
Higher Speeds Demand Greater Bandwidth
The TDS3000B Series DPO provides unmatched insight into complex signal behavior, such as metastable events.
You face faster clock rates and edge speeds, increasingly complex signals and mounting time-to-market pressures. The higher the bandwidth of your oscilloscope, the more accurate the reproduction of your signal. The TDS3000B Series offers a wide range of bandwidths from 100 MHz to 500 MHz to best suit the needs of your most demanding projects, so that you can complete your tasks on time and with confidence.
Quickly Debug and Characterize Signals with DRT Sampling Technology and sin(x)/x Interpolation
The TDS3054B’s 5 GS/s real-time sample rate and sin(x)/x interpolation ensure accurate reconstruction of a 500 MHz sine wave.
Even with 2 GS/s sample rate, which exceeds the Nyquist requirement of 2X oversampling, this 500 MHz oscilloscope with linear interpolation does not provide accurate reconstruction of the same 500 MHz sine wave.
The TDS3000B Series combines unique digital real-time (DRT) sampling technology with sin(x)/x interpolation to allow you to accurately characterize a wide range of signal types on all channels simultaneously. This sampling technology makes it possible to capture high-frequency information, such as glitches and edge anomalies, that eludes other oscilloscopes in its class, while sin(x)/x interpolation ensures precise reconstruction of each waveform. The result — a complete view of your signal to speed debug and characterization.
Enhanced Troubleshooting Ability
WaveAlert waveform anomaly detection alerts you to any waveform that deviates from the "normal" input, such as the glitch on channel 2.
WaveAlert ? waveform anomaly detection speeds your troubleshooting tasks by helping you find those elusive problems faster. WaveAlert detection monitors the incoming signals on all channels and will detect and highlight any waveform that deviates from the normal waveform being acquired. Because the TDS3000B oscilloscope can stop acquisition, sound a beep, make a hard copy or save the waveform when it detects an anomaly, you can run tests over long time periods - even unattended - to find those challenging, very infrequent failures.
Simple, Speedy Documentation and Analysis
OpenChoice ? solutions deliver simple, seamless integration between the oscilloscope and the PC. Using a standard built-in Ethernet port, e*Scope web-based remote control allows you to control your TDS3000B oscilloscope from anywhere, using the Internet and your PC. With the TDS3GV optional communication module, floppy disk, TDSPCS1 OpenChoice software, and integration with third-party software, the TDS3000B Series provides you with multiple choices to easily capture, transfer, document, and analyze your measurement results. This seamless integration extends the power and value of these brilliantly engineered, affordable oscilloscopes.
Flexible Features for Every Application
Optional application modules enable you to transform your oscilloscope into a specialized tool for limit testing, telecommunications mask testing, and video troubleshooting.
And, with its lightweight, compact size and battery pack, the TDS3000B Series oscilloscope can go wherever it is needed. It weighs only 4.5 kg (9.8 lbs.), with battery installed. Use the optional plug-in thermal printer to instantly document your work, even in the field.
