New Scopes Offer High Performance In A Low-Cost Design

One-button auto-set, real-time operation, 2.5 K-point record length, external trigger, pulse width trigger, FFT math function, and context-sensitive help are among the many features said to make the TDS1000 and TDS2000 series digital signal oscilloscopes (DSO)s the top performers in the low-cost sector of the DSO marketplace. The 2-channel TDS1000 scopes have a 60- or 100-MHz bandwidth, 1.0-GSPS sample rate, and a mono display. The 2- or 4-channel TDS- 2000 DSOs have a 100- or 200-MHz bandwidth, 1.0- or 2.0-GSPS sample rate, and a color LCD that helps simplify waveform interpretation, especially when multiple traces are displayed. The per- formance range of the scopes can be further extended by a module, Model TDS2CMA, that supports communications with other instruments and peripherals through an RS-232, GPIB or parallel port. In addition, the Model P2200 probe, with its switchable attenuation ranges of 1X and 10X, can accommodate a wide range of measurements and has a built-in check wizard that ensures optimum probe set-ups. The TDS1000 and TDS2000 series DSOs are priced from $995 to $2,795; the TDS2CMA communications module costs $265; the P2200 probe, $95; and an operating training kit, $295.
