4-Channel Digital Storage Oscilloscope, 200 MHz Bandwidth, 2 GS/s Sample Rate, 5 M Points Record Length
The Tektronix TBS2204B 4-Channel Digital Storage Oscilloscope, 200 MHz Bandwidth, 2 GS/s Sample Rate, 5 M Points Record Length has a 9-inch WVGA display, 5 million point record length and 2 GS/s sample rate, captures and display significantly more signals to help you debug and validate the designs faster. Easily and confidently analyze your signals with new on-waveform cursor readouts and 32 automated measurements, each with informative tips. The TekVPI® probe interface supports traditional passive BNC probes, but also enables wide application coverage with the latest active voltage probes and current probes.
Designed to make your work easier
The TBS2204B is designed for easy operation and quick hands-on learning. Dedicated controls provide quick access to important settings, so you can evaluate signals faster. With the TBS2204B you get 10 vertical divisions and 15 horizontal divisions, so you can see more of your signal. The large display also offers more room for measurement results and menu information.
The Zoom function lets you quickly pan through the record and zoom in to see signal details. The new on screen cursors overlay the cursor measurements on the screen making them intuitive to read and understand.
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 timeout conditions. Runt trigger is designed to capture signals that are shorter in amplitude than expected.
The Instrument 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 reduce noise on repetitive signals.
Quickly search for events of interest - The search button enables you to quickly setup a search criteria based on trigger settings. All occurrences of the event of interest with the acquisition are highlighted with search marks. Easily navigate to each instance of occurrence with dedicated navigation buttons for closer inspection and analysis.
Automated measurements are easier than ever - A comprehensive set of automated measurements enable fast and convenient testing of a wide variety of signal conditions for different applications.
The measurements are grouped into four categories: Frequency, time, amplitude, and area. All the 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, so waveforms are not obscured by the readouts. The HelpEverywhere system provides help texts with graphics to explain how a measurement is performed, making it easier for new users to know which measurement to use and to interpret the results.
FFT function - You can understand the frequency content of your signals with the FFT function by pressing the dedicated front-panel FFT button. 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.
TekVPI® Interface and active probe support
The TekVPI probe interface sets the standard for ease of use in probing. With this interface the TBS2204B Oscilloscope supports a wide range of the latest voltage and current probes, providing coverage for many applications. These probes are powered by and communicate with the TBS2204B through the VPI interface. Scale factors and status information, such as error conditions, are sent to the instrument for processing and display. This saves you from having to manually set scale factors, calculate offsets, or the need to degauss your current probes.
The new front end design with higher 2GS/s sample rate offers lower noise and higher effective bits enabling more accurate measurements.
First in its class with wireless communications
On the rear of the instrument, you will find several communications ports. The USB device port or LAN port can be used to control the instrument using the fully-documented command set.
The TBS2204B is the first oscilloscope in its class to support wireless communication. Plug a compatible Wi-Fi dongle into the USB host port and setup the interface for Wi-Fi from the front panel.
Built-in tips for faster setup
HelpEverywhere is a unique feature on theTBS2204B. It shows instant help information as you navigate through key menus. The tips include measurement information, application tips, and general guidance in the form of text and graphics. You can selectively turn tips on and off from the HelpEverywhere menu.
On-screen scope fundamentals
Scope Intro handbook is embedded into the TBS2204B help system. Pressing the front panel Function button gives you access to information on oscilloscope basic operations, as well as an overview of the TBS2204B and TekSmartLab Lab Management System for education.
Innovative new education solutions
The TBS2204B offers new ways to enable educators to devote more time to teaching circuit concepts instead of lab setup and management.
Educators can disable Autoset, Cursors and automated measurements on the instruments so that they can teach the students on the basic concepts and help them understand how to use the instrument horizontal and vertical controls to get the waveform display, use the graticule to measure time and voltage and manually plot / calculate the signal characteristics.
The integrated Courseware function allows professors to load lab exercises on the instrument to give students guidance at each station and provides a structured framework into 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.
TekBench™ is PC software that controls Tektronix oscilloscopes and arbitrary function generators. It offers intuitive instrument control, automated measurement data logging, automated frequency response measurements, and easy waveform exporting with required format to eliminate extra time and effort. It allow users to focus on their experiment rather than learning the instrument.
