An optional Communications Signal Analyzer package assists in designing products with communications interfaces, such as switches, routers, and videoconferencing equipment. The DSOs also provide capabilities for communications mask testing. Thirty-nine automatic telecom and datacom masks are included. Statistical tools help analyze communications signal behavior, such as measurement statistics and waveform histograms. $9,295 to $31,195. Tektronix, (800) 426-2200, press 3, code 1010.
