200 MHz, 2-Channel Digital Storage Oscilloscope, 1 GS/s, 20k Points
The Tektronix TBS1202C 200 MHz, 2-Channel Digital Storage Oscilloscope offers affordable performance in a compact design. It is designed to meet the needs of today's educational institutions, embedded design engineers, and maker community. The instrument includes a 7-inch WVGA color display with up to 1 GS/s sample rate, 200 MHz bandwidth, and a five year warranty. The instrument comes with an innovative courseware system for students that integrates lab exercises with step-by-step instructions. The HelpEverywhere system provides useful tips and hints throughout the user interface, making the instrument more approachable to a new user.
Designed to make you learn and work faster
The TBS1202C Oscilloscope is designed for quick hands-on learning and easy operation with just the right combination of features and capabilities. Dedicated front panel controls provide easy access to all the important settings. The graticule with 10 vertical divisions and 15 horizontal divisions enables you to see more signals per screen.
The large menus with clearly labeled and colored information on the screen make it easy to navigate and find information of interest. The zoom function allows users to quickly pan through the record and zoom in to see the signal details in areas of interest.
Versatile triggering and acquisition modes
The trigger system is designed for troubleshooting today's mixed signal designs. Beyond a basic edge trigger, it also includes pulse width and runt triggering, which are especially useful for troubleshooting digital sections of your designs.
Pulse width triggering is perfect for hunting narrow glitches or time out conditions. Runt trigger is designed to capture signals that are shorter in amplitude than expected.
The TBS1202C Oscilloscope offers several acquisition modes. The default acquisition mode is Sample Mode, which works well for most applications. The Peak Detect Mode is useful for hunting spikes, and Average Mode can help to reduce noise on repetitive signals.
Automated measurements and analysis
A comprehensive set of automated measurements enable fast and convenient testing of a wide variety of signal conditions for different applications.
Measurements are displayed on a single screen. They are grouped into four categories: Frequency, Time, Amplitude, and Area. All measurements are displayed on a single measurement selection screen, making it easy to choose from 32 automated measurements - no more hunting through various menus.
Measurements are color coded by the source and are presented on a transparent background, meaning that waveforms are not obscured by the readouts.
You can understand the frequency content of your signals with the FFT function by pressing the FFT button on the front panel.
Display only the FFT or turn on the source waveform display to see both the frequency and the time domain waveform. A transparent readout shows important settings without blocking the FFT display.
The HelpEverywhere system provides help text with graphics to explain the different settings on the instrument, making it easier for new users to know which measurement to use and how to interpret the results. Help is provided in the same language as the user interface.
Innovative new education solutions
The TBS1202C Oscilloscope offers several features that enable the educator to devote more time to teach fundamental concepts. The Scope Intro handbook is embedded into the TBS1202C help system. Pressing the help button on the front panel gives you access to information on oscilloscope basic operations, as well as an overview of the TBS1000C oscilloscope, controls, and tips to use it.
The integrated Courseware function allows professors to load lab exercises onto the instrument to give guidance to students at each station and provides a structured framework in which students can capture data to incorporate into their reports. Over 100 sample lab exercises are available for download from the Tektronix Courseware Resource Center.
Flexible data transfer
The USB host port on the front of the instrument makes it easy to save the instrument settings, screenshots, and waveform data into a USB flash drive.
Easily capture, save, and analyze measurement results by connecting your PC to the USB device port on the rear of the instrument and using the OpenChoice PC Communications Software available on the Tektronix website. Simply pull screen images and waveform data into the stand-alone desktop application or directly into Microsoft Word and Excel.
