Digital Storage Oscilloscope-Tektronix TBS1052B Oscilloscope

This page of equipments section of Test and Measurement World covers Tektronix TBS1052B Oscilloscope. It mentions features and specifications of Tektronix TBS1052B and 1000 series of digital oscilloscopes. Other vendors of digital storage oscilloscopes are also mentioned.

Modern digital oscilloscope is a complex electronic device used to measure signal in time domain. It consists of various software and hardware modules. It captures, processes and displays the waveform as per user settings. It also provides facilities to store time domain waveform for future comparison and analysis purpose.

Following are the factors considered for selection of digital oscilloscope:
• Frequency of operation
• Sampling rate
• Record length
• Waveform capture rate
• External Trigger
