OSCILLOSCOPES
OSCILLOSCOPES
Tektronix offers oscilloscopes for many different applications and uses. To help you choose the right
scope for your needs, the most common criteria for selecting a scope are listed below, along with
helpful tips for determining your requirements.
1
Bandwidth
3
All oscilloscopes have a low-pass frequency response that
rolls off at higher frequencies. Oscilloscope bandwidth is
specified as being the frequency at which a sinusoidal input
signal is attenuated to 70.7% of the signal’s true amplitude
– the -3 dB point. Your oscilloscope must have sufficient
bandwidth to capture all relevant frequency components of
your signal. If you regularly work with digital signals, it may
be easier to consider bandwidth by comparing signal and
oscilloscope rise time specifications. Use an oscilloscope
with a rise time specification five times faster than your
signal rise time to keep error below 2%.
Rule: Bandwidth > 5 x Highest Signal Frequency
AMPLITUDE (%)
100
0.1
0.5
1.0
FREQUENCY (GHZ)
FIG 01 /
Typical frequency response curve for a general purpose oscilloscope
2
Record length is the number of samples the oscilloscope
can digitize and store in a single acquisition. Since an
oscilloscope can store only a limited number of samples,
the waveform duration – or length of “time” captured – will
be inversely proportional to the oscilloscope’s sample rate.
A longer record length enables a longer time window to be
captured with high resolution.
Rule: Captured Time = (Record Length) / (Sample Rate)
Digital Channels and Spectrum
Analyzer Input
4
Today’s oscilloscopes offer more than just analog channels
for system-level troubleshooting of complex designs.
85
70.7
Record Length
Sample Rate
The faster an oscilloscope samples, the greater the
resolution and detail of the displayed waveform, and the less
likely that critical information or events will be lost. Tektronix
recommends at least 5X oversampling to ensure signal
details are captured and to avoid aliasing.
Rule: Sample Rate > 5 x (Highest Frequency Component)
• If you need to analyze a parallel bus or multiple serial
buses, the Tektronix MSO Series of mixed signal
oscilloscopes and MDO Series of mixed domain
oscilloscopes offer 16 digital channels and up to
4 analog channels for analyzing multiple signals at once.
• If you are working with RF signals, the Tektronix MDO
Series of mixed domain oscilloscopes offers a built-in
spectrum analyzer for time-correlated analysis of analog,
digital and RF signals.
5
Features and Analysis Capability
Tektronix oscilloscopes offer a range of features and analysis
capabilities. When choosing your scope, you should review
available triggers, waveform search tools, automated
measurements, and analysis packages such as serial bus
analysis, jitter and power analysis to ensure they meet
your needs.

EMI Diagnostics and
Precompliance
Reduced time to solution for EMI problems
Time-saving solutions for the EMI problems
you never planned for. Today’s biggest EMI
challenges are identifying the location and
source of an EMI problem and capturing a
transient EMI event. Tektronix MDO4000C
Series Mixed Domain Oscilloscopes combine
the functionality of a mixed signal
oscilloscope with a spectrum analyzer;
capture synchronized analog, digital and RF
signals, all time correlated for a complete
system view of your device.
The MDO3000 Series also feature a built-in
spectrum analyzer. Tektronix Real-Time
Spectrum Analyzers are able to view, trigger
on and analyze the effects of the briefest of
signals as they occur in frequency domain
and include limit-line scans with pass/fail
testing, EMI filter, detectors and averaging for
high-confidence precompliance testing.
The RSA300/500/600 Series with SignalVu-PC
provide you with a real time DPX spectrum
display. This real time display allows you to
see interference or other signal problems that
other analyzers would miss. Additionally,
SignalVu-PC offers user definable limit lines, a
logarithmic scale, and CISPR and MIL-STD
filters and some detectors that can be helpful
to perform a worst case, low cost EMI sweep
before final compliance is sought. This
powerful combination of signal discovery for
troubleshooting and measurements against
real EMI limit lines is helpful to better prepare
yourself for taking your design through some
basic checks for major EMI violations

CHOOSING YOUR SIGNAL GENERATOR
In electronic test and measurement, more often than not, a signal source is required to generate signals
that are not available unless externally provided. Below is a list of common features that you may want
to consider when choosing a signal generator for your application.
1
Sample (Clock) Rate
Sample rate, usually specified in terms of megasamples or
gigasamples per second, denotes the maximum clock or
sample rate at which the instrument can operate. The sample
rate affects the frequency of the main output signal. In general,
you should choose an instrument where the sampling frequency
is twice that of the highest spectral frequency component of
the generated signal to ensure accurate signal reproduction.
The maximum sample rate also determines the smallest time
increment that can be used to create waveforms. Typically this
figure is simply the result of the calculation: T = 1/F, where T
is the timing resolution in seconds and F is the sample rate.
2
Memory Depth (Record Length)
Memory depth, or record length, plays an important role in
signal fidelity because it determines how many points of data
can be stored to define a waveform. Deeper memory enables
you to store more waveform detail and/or more cycles of the
desired waveform.
3
Vertical (Amplitude) Resolution
Vertical resolution pertains to the binary word size, in bits,
of the instrument’s DAC, with more bits equating to higher
resolution. The vertical resolution of the DAC defines the
amplitude accuracy and distortion of the reproduced
waveform. Although more is better, there is a general
trade-off for most arbitrary waveform instruments; the
higher the resolution, the lower the sample rate.
4
Features and Capabilities
Tektronix signal generators offer a range of features and
output capabilities. When choosing your signal generator,
you should also evaluate standard waveforms, modulation
capabilities, output amplitude and waveform editing
software to ensure that the instrument meets your needs.

Replicating Real World Signals with an
Arbitrary/Function Generator
Introduction
Nearly all consumer products today have circuits or
devices that require the input of specific electronic
signals in order for the product to perform correctly.
This input could be as simple as the signal from an
automotive knock sensor, or as complex as a serial
data communication bus signal such as Controller
Area Network (CAN) or Inter IC Bus (I2C) signal.
When designing and testing these devices, a mechanism
is required to replicate the input signals. In many cases
it may also be useful to add noise or other anomalies
to the signals to test the devices under real world and
stress conditions. A common approach is to create
these signals using software applications or just
capture a live signal using an oscilloscope. This created
or captured waveform is then loaded in an Arbitrary/Function

CHOOSING YOUR LOGIC ANALYZER
To help you choose the right logic analyzer for your needs, the most common selection criteria are listed
below, along with helpful tips for determining your requirements.
1
Number of Channels
Logic analyzers are available in both modular and preconfigured forms. A modular logic analyzer allows you to add
additional acquisition cards to increase the number of
available channels. A pre-configured logic analyzer has a fixed
number of channels and can’t be changed after purchase.
2
Timing Resolution
Timing resolution is simply the inverse of the sample rate of
the logic analyzer. Higher timing resolution allows you to more
precisely place the edges of signals relative to one another,
giving more accurate timing measurements.
3
State Clock Rate
In addition to timing mode, logic analyzers have a second
acquisition mode called state mode. In this mode, a clock
from your circuit tells the logic analyzer when to sample the
date. The state clock specification indicates the maximum
frequency of clock that the logic analyzer can use.
4
Record Length
Record length, or memory depth, indicates the number of
samples that can be stored. Longer record lengths can be
helpful in troubleshooting problems whose cause and
symptom are widely separated in time.

CHOOSING YOUR PCI EXPRESS LOGIC PROTOCOL ANALYZER
To help you choose the right PCI Express Logic Protocol Analyzer for your needs, the most common
selection criteria are listed below, along with helpful tips for determining your requirements.
1
Probing
How you will access your PCIe signals is a critical
consideration. There are three possible methods of probing
your system: slot interposer, solder down probes, and
midbus probes. A slot interposer is the most convenient
method if you have access to a PCIe slot. A solder-down
probe can be used if you are designing an embedded
system where a slot is not available. Finally, a midbus probe
can be an easy solution if you can design a probe footprint
into your system.
58 | TEK.COM/PROTOCOL-ANALYZER
2
Number of Lanes
PCI Express Logic Protocol Analyzers are available in
different widths to provide cost-effective solutions no
matter if you have x1 or a x16 system.
3
Triggering
The ability to trigger on packet details along with other
resources like counters and timers can significantly speed
your debug and validation effort. Consider also the ability
to cross trigger with other events in your system such as
a memory bus.
PCI EXPRESS LOGIC PROTOCOL ANALYZERS
PRODUCT HIGHLIGHTS
•Three probing options: solder-down, midbus, and
interposer
•Resynchronization time <12 FTS1 (PCIe2) or <4

Key items for consideration when choosing your Spectrum Analyzer.
1
Frequency Range
Of course, the analyzer chosen must cover all of the
frequencies you need to measure. Consider harmonics and
spurious signals when making your selection. For example,
your fundamental signal may be at 2.4 GHz, but perhaps you
will want to see up to 10 harmonics of the signal to meet all
the needs of your design.
2
Acquisition/Real-Time Bandwidth
In a real-time spectrum analyzer, this sets the maximum
bandwidth for guaranteed capture and triggering on brief
signals, and is also the limiting factor in modulation
measurements. For example, 802.11n signals require a minimum
acquisition bandwidth of 40 MHz so that all signal elements can
be acquired and demodulated. However, the entire operating
frequency of your signal of interest may need to be considered.
Also, wide band radar and electronic warfare signals often
require as much bandwidth as possible to completely capture
the full bandwidth of a signal, so it is very useful to use an
analyzer with the maximum available real-time analysis
bandwidth available, at 800 MHz.
64 | TEK.COM/SPECTRUM-ANALYZER
3
Dynamic Range
This can be a complex subject. Your definition of dynamic
range may be highly specific. Consideration of Adjacent
Channel Power Ratio dynamic range, spurious-free dynamic
range in a particular frequency range, or harmonic distortion
specifications may or may not be important to your
application. For example, the RSA5100B has the best
Spurious Free Dynamic Range of any wide band analyzer
on the market, while the RSA306B has a much smaller
form factor and is great for making quick measurements.
So the RSA5100B may be more suitable for characterizing
things like power amplifiers or radar systems.

Features and Capabilities
All of our real-time spectrum analyzers can run the same
feature set and capabilities with SignalVu-PC, from our

unmatched by any previous offering.
Using the latest in commercial interfaces and
available computing power, the RSA Series separates
signal acquisition from measurement, dramatically lowering
the cost of instrument hardware. Data analysis, storage
and replay is performed on your personal computer, tablet or laptop.
Managing the PC separately from the acquisition hardware makes processing upgrades easy, and helps
to make the RSA Series an extremely portable spectrum analyzer family for many different applications.

Mapping
Playback of Recorded Files
Tektronix offers the MAP application that
enables interference hunting and location
analysis. Locate interference with an azimuth
function that lets you draw a line or an arrow
on a mapped measurement to indicate the
direction your antenna was pointing when you
take a measurement. You can also create and
display measurement labels. Maps can be
populated from the spectrum, DPX spectrum,
Signal Strength, Spectrogram or Channel
Power measurements. The Map It function
in SignalVu-PC automatically captures GPS
coordinates, time and the measurement
results in a single file for later analysis.
Playback of recorded signals can reduce hours
of watching and waiting for a spectral violation
to minutes at your desk reviewing recorded

Signal Survey/Classification
The signal classification application (SV54)
enables an expert systems guidance to aid
the user in classifying signals. It provides
graphical tools that allow you to quickly
create a spectral region of interest, enabling
you to classify and sort signals efficiently.
The spectral profile mask, when overlaid
on top of a trace, provides signal shape
guidance, while frequency, bandwidth,
channel number, and location are displayed
allowing for fast classification.

Description
CHOOSING YOUR OPTICAL MODULATION ANALYZER
Tektronix Optical Modulation Analyzer solutions enable efficient and accurate characterization of serial
communications in fiber at 100 Gb/s and beyond. With coherent optical modulation analysis capabilities,
Tektronix provides the acquisition and display of constellation diagrams, Q plots, polarization analysis,
and source laser stability to better understand fiber-based signal quality. The Tektronix Optical
Modulation Analyzer series are tightly coupled with the DPO70000SX performance oscilloscopes series
to enable comprehensive analysis and presentation of your data, so you're no longer in the dark.
1
Receiver Bandwidth
Receiver bandwidth determines the maximum baud rate
that can be accurately measured by the optical modulation
analyzer (OMA). A receiver bandwidth of 25GHz can
accurately measure signals up to 40GBaud. Using the
45GHz OMA, signals as high as 80GBaud can be measured.
2
Frequency Band
100G communications typically occur in the C-band,
however L-band is also supported. The Tektronix coherent
optical products support testing in C-band, L-band, or both.
Accompanying coherent receiver calibration sources also
support flexible choices of frequency band.
Homodyne or
Heterodyne Measurements
3
Homodyne measurements can often be conducted with
equivalent-time oscilloscopes offering superior oscilloscope
bandwidth and very low noise. When used in this mode, an
externally-referenced local oscillator is required (option EXT).
Heterodyne measurements do not require an external local
oscillator and can utilize the high sample rate offered by
real-time oscilloscopes.

CHOOSING YOUR SOURCE MEASURE (SMU) INSTRUMENT
A SMU instrument integrates precision power supply and digital multimeter (DMM) capabilities in one instrument
while covering a wide dynamic range. SMUs source and measure simultaneously, making them ideal for
characterizing and testing semiconductors and other non-linear devices and materials.
System-Level Speed
or Throughput
Measurement Settling Time,
Offset Error, and Noise
The true measure of speed is how quickly a final
measurement or set of measurements (such as a suite
of current vs. voltage parameters) is returned to the PC
controller. This involves not only the number of readings/
second, but also range and function change times.
When choosing between instruments, compare the time it
takes a SMU to settle the specified offset error. This can be
seen in the “bumpiness” of the resulting data curve, which
indicates measurement noise; the smoother the data curve
the less measurement noise. SMUs having a fast, flat, and
noise-free settling time achieve more consistent results
during a series of measurements taken over time.
1
Sourcing Resolution
and Output Stability
2
An SMU’s usable maximum resolution depends on its overall
accuracy and the resolution of its analog-to-digital converter
(ADC). In general, the higher the resolution is, the higher the
bit count on the ADC and the higher the accuracy will be.
3
4
Cabling
Triaxial cables offer significant advantages over coaxial
cables when making low current measurements. Triaxial
cables have an extra shield that ensures lower leakage,
better response, and greater noise immunity.

POWER ANALYZER SELECTION
POWER ANALYZERS
Fully characterize your power-electronics design from input to output
with Tektronix power analyzers. Designed for precision measurement
of power-electronics circuits and devices, these analyzers give you
what you need to measure conversion efficiency and perform
compliance testing on single-phase or 3-phase devices.

CHOOSING YOUR POWER ANALYZER
Power analyzers are used for testing a wide range of power-electronics devices, from cell-phone chargers to 1000kW
grid-connected inverters. To help you choose the best analyzer for your application, consider the criteria below.
1
Number of Inputs
Power analyzers are available in both fixed configurations
(typically single-channel) and modular configurations.
If your application is limited to single-phase devices, a
single-channel analyzer may meet your needs. But if you
need to measure conversion efficiency on these devices,
a two-channel analyzer is required.
Testing of 3-phase devices of course requires a multi-phase
analyzer. In many cases, two channels will be all you need
for a two-wattmeter measurement on 3-wire inputs or
outputs. A four-channel analyzer can measure both input and
output simultaneously, to determine conversion efficiency.
2
Measurement Bandwidth
How much bandwidth is enough? The measurement
bandwidth you need is usually determined by the switching
speed of the device-under-test, or the highest-order
harmonic that you are testing requires. Switching speeds
of tens or hundreds of kHz are common in today’s designs.
But new semiconductor technologies promise to increase
speeds up to 2x or more in the near future. Choose
an analyzer that is capable of measuring your highest
frequencies of interest, with some headroom for
future-proofing.
Compliance Testing
for Regulatory Standards
3
If your application requires you to know that your device is
compliant with regulatory standards such as IEC61000 for
harmonics, or ENERGY STAR™ for energy efficiency, you
need an analyzer capable of meeting the test requirements
specified by the standard. Even better, look for an analyzer
supported by software applications that can automate
instrument setup and reporting of test results in the exact
format required for your application.
4
Current Shunts: Internal or External?
Will you be measuring milliamperes or hundreds of amperes?
Power analyzers vary in the features they offer for direct current
inputs or connection to external current transducers. Ideally, the
analyzer should have internal current shunts that allow you to
connect your device directly, for best accuracy. If you will be
testing a range of devices at different power levels, you may
value both high- and low-range shunts. Finally, if your application
requires external current transducers (usually required for current
>30 Amps), make sure there are transducers available that are
well-matched to the analyzer
and offer the accuracy you need.
5
Remote Communication
Will you have a need to control the analyzer remotely or transfer
measurement data to your PC? If so, you will want to look for an
instrument that features the communication ports you need.
Depending on the analyzer model, some ports may be standard
features or extra-cost options; be careful to choose the right
instrument configuration that meets your requirements.

CHOOSING YOUR SWITCH SYSTEMS
The most common selection criteria to help you choose the appropriate switch mainframe for your application.
1
Multiplex Switching
Multiplex switching can be used to connect one instrument
to multiple devices (1:N) or multiple instruments to a
single device (N:1). Multiplex switching permits multiple
simultaneous connections, and sequential or non-sequential
switch closures.
2
Matrix Switching
The matrix switch configuration is the most versatile because
it can connect multiple inputs to multiple outputs. A matrix is
useful when connections must be made between several
signal sources and a multi-pin device, such as an integrated
circuit or resistor network.
3
Isolated Switch Configurations
The isolated, or independent, switch configuration consists
of individual relays, often with multiple poles, with no
connections between relays. Isolated relays are not connected
to any other circuit, so the addition of external wiring makes
them suitable for building very flexible and unique
combinations of input/output configurations. Isolated relays
are commonly used in power and control applications to open
and close different parts of a circuit that are at substantially
different voltage levels.

CHOOSING YOUR DIGITAL MULTIMETER
To help you choose the appropriate digital multimeter for your application, the most common selection criteria
are listed below.
1
Resolution
Resolution refers to how fine a measurement a meter can
make. By knowing the resolution of a meter, you can
determine if it is possible to see a small change in your signal.
The terms digits and counts are used to describe a meter’s
resolution. A 6.5-digit multimeter can display 6 full digits
ranging from 0 to 9, and one “half” digit, which displays
only a 1 or is left blank. A 6.5-digit meter will display up
to 1,999,999 counts of resolution.
2
Accuracy
Accuracy is the largest allowable error that will occur under
specific operating conditions. In other words, it is an indication
of how close the DMM’s displayed measurement is to the
actual value of the signal being measured. Accuracy is usually
expressed as a percent of reading. An accuracy of one percent
of reading means that for a displayed reading of 100 volts, the
actual value of the voltage could be anywhere between 99
volts and 101 volts.
3
Measurements
Digital multimeters are capable of making a variety of different
measurements. A basic DMM typically can measure voltage,
current and resistance. Other measurements commonly
supported are continuity and diode measurements. Continuity
is a quick go/no-go resistance test that distinguishes between
an open and a closed circuit. A diode test mode measures
the actual voltage drop across a junction. Other possible
measurement modes are frequency, period, temperature
and capacitance.
4
Extra Channel Capacity
Many of Keithley’s DMMs include the capability to add
a scanner accessory, enabling measurements on multiple
test points or devices.

Using the DMM Series to make simple and
accurate resistance measurements
Application Note
Using two wires to measure resistance is convenient, but
causes measurement error. You can virtually eliminate this
error by using four leads and a multimeter with separate
source and measure terminals. Unfortunately, adding
additional leads and connections makes the measurement
more complicated. You have additional leads to connect and
you may have to swap clips and probes as you change from
voltage to resistance. Now a new concept enables you to take
four-wire resistance measurements with just two leads.

Multimeters
Application Note
“What is the output voltage of the power supply?” This is
one of the most common measurements made with digital
multimeters. Similar questions arise about the frequency of
oscillators, the value of resistors, operating temperature, or the
input to a voltage controlled oscillator. It’s easy to use a digital
multimeter to take any of these readings.
But taking a single reading gives you only part of the story.
An equally important question is: “How stable is the output of
the power supply?” Understanding this, and other questions,
requires looking at measurement statistics. What is the average
value of the output? What is the standard deviation? The
Tektronix DMM4050 and DMM4040 multimeters offer integrated
analysis functions to help you answer these questions.

CHOOSING YOUR DATA ACQUISITION SYSTEM
Designing the switching for an automated test system demands an understanding of the signals to be switched
and the tests to be performed. The following is a quick look at basic key decision points in the design of a
switching system.
1
Switch Configuration
Multiplex switching can be used to connect one instrument
to multiple devices or multiple instruments to a single
device. Multiplex switching permits multiple simultaneous
connections and sequential or non-sequential switch
closures. A matrix switch configuration is the most versatile
because it can connect multiple inputs to multiple outputs.
The isolated, or independent, switch configuration consists
of individual relays, often with multiple poles, with no
connections between relays. For scanner (or multiplex)
cards, the channel is used as a switched input in measuring
circuits or as a switched output in sourcing circuits. For
switch cards, each channel’s signal paths are independent
of other channels.
2
Relay Types
Three key relay types are used. Electromechanical relays
offer the widest power range and a good life and speed at
a relatively low cost. Reed relays cost more but offer less
contact wear and bounce for a better life and speed than
electromechanical. Solid-state relays cost still more, but
offer the best life and speed with no contact wear or bounce.
3
Systemization
Connection types found on switch cards include both screw
terminals and mass-terminated connectors. At the instrument
level, TSP-Link master/slave connection offers easy system
expansion between Series 3700A mainframes and Series
2600B SourceMeter instruments.

CHOOSING YOUR SPECIALIZED LOW LEVEL INSTRUMENT
To help you choose the appropriate specialized low level instrument for your application, the most
common selection criteria are listed below, including helpful tips for determining the correct specialized
low level instrument for your requirements.
1
Resolution
Resolution means how fine a meter’s measurement is and
lets you determine if it’s possible to see a small change in
the signal. Resolution is described by digits and counts.
A 6.5-digit instrument can display six full digits ranging from
0 to 9, and one “half” digit that displays either a 1 or is left
blank. A 6.5-digit instrument can display up to 1,999,999
counts of resolution.
2
Accuracy
Accuracy is the largest allowable error that will occur under
specific operating conditions and is an indication of how
close the instrument’s displayed measurement is to the
actual value of the signal measured. Accuracy is typically
expressed as a percent of reading. For example, an accuracy
of 1% of reading means that, for a displayed reading of
100 volts, the actual value of the voltage is between
99 volts and 101 volts.
Low Current/High Resistance
Measurements
3
Low current/high resistance measurements evaluate the
insulation qualities of materials or components. Typically, a
voltage up to 500 or 1000 volts is applied and the resulting
current is measured, which can be in the range of picoamperes
(10E-12A) or lower. A digital multimeter may seem like the
right instrument for these measurements. But if the current
is below 1µA or the resistance is above 10MΩ, the correct
solution is an Electrometer or Picoammeter.
Low Voltage/Low Resistance
Measurements
4
Low resistance/low voltage measurements evaluate the
conduction or contact qualities of materials or components.
Typically, a current under 100mA but as low as 1µA is applied
and the resulting voltage is measured, which can be in the
range of microvolts and even nanovolts. For low voltage,
choose a Nanovoltmeter or low noise multimeter. For low
resistance, a Nanovoltmeter/current source combination
or switch/multimeter is the correct solution.

TEK.COM/DC-POWER-SUPPLY | 113
POWER SUPPLIES
CHOOSING YOUR PROGRAMMABLE POWER SUPPLY
To help you choose the appropriate Power Supply for your application, the most common selection
criteria are listed below.
Output Voltage, Current,
and Power
1
Ensure that the power supply has sufficient voltage output
and current output to meet your needs. Also ensure that the
supply can deliver the required power. Some power supply
V-I output characteristics offer a trade-off between maximum
voltage and maximum current (hyperbolic V-I output).
2
Setting Resolution and Accuracy
Voltage and current settings (sometimes called limits or
programmed values) each have resolution and accuracy
specifications associated with them. The resolution of these
settings determines the minimum increment in which the
output may be adjusted. The accuracy describes the extent to
which the value of the output matches international standards
and is typically expressed as ± (% of reading + offset).
114 | TEK.COM/DC-POWER-SUPPLY
3
Ripple and Noise
Spurious AC components on the output of a DC supply are
called ripple and noise. The term “ripple” refers to periodic AC
on the output. When viewed in the frequency domain, ripple
shows up as spurious responses. Unlike ripple, which is
periodic, noise is random. A power supply’s ripple and noise
is specified within a bandwidth, and should be specified for
both current and voltage.
4
Features and Programmability
When selecting your power supply, select the supply that has
the functionality you need. Consider a multiple-channel supply
as a cost-effective solution for applications requiring multiple
power sources. For maximum accuracy, consider supplies that
have remote sensing. When developing and testing batteryoperated devices, consider a special purpose batterysimulating supply.

At first glance, a variable DC power supply appears to be a
fairly simple device. However, it is a sophisticated, accurate,
electrically-rugged workhorse. It has to reliably deliver stable,
precise, clean voltage and current, no matter its load --
resistive, inductive, capacitive, low-impedance, highimpedance, steady-state or variable. How well the power
supply fulfills this mission and where it hits its limits are defined
in its specifications. Choosing the right power supply for your
application requires a good understanding of how they are

DC ELECTRONIC LOADS SELECTION
DC ELECTRONIC LOADS
Keithley DC electronic loads are stand-alone, high accuracy instruments for
testing and for performance characterization of power conversion devices such
as power supplies, battery chargers, solar cells, DC/DC converters, and other
power components. Keithley electronic loads offer resolution as low as 0.1mV
and 0.01mA to enable detection of subtle changes in power devices. The loads
also have high bandwidth dynamic cycling and slew rates as fast
as 2.5A/µs to thoroughly test the transient performance of power
conversion devices.

CHOOSING YOUR DC ELECTRONIC LOAD
DC electronic loads have a wide range of performance to enable testing both static and dynamic performance of
power devices. Key capabilities to consider when selecting DC electronic loads are presented below.
Output Power, Output Voltage,
and Output Current
1
Ensure that the electronic load can dissipate the output power
that your devices can generate. Also make sure that the load
is rated for the maximum voltage and maximum current that
your devices or components can supply. It is essential that all
three parameters are factored in to your selection decision on
the dissipation requirements for your DC electronic load.
2
Electronic Load Operating Modes
All electronic loads offer a constant current (CC) operating
mode. Most also offer constant voltage (CV) and constant
power (CP) operating modes. Some also provide constant
resistance (CR) loading. More advanced electronic loads offer
battery discharge loading to test battery life characteristics
and LED simulation loading to test LED driver modules. Make
sure the electronic load you select has the operating modes
that you will need.
3
Dynamic Load Testing
If you need to test how your device performs with load
changes, ensure that the load you select has a dynamic mode
with a transition speed that is fast enough to test the specified
transient response of your device. Dynamic modes are
typically specified as the range of times that the load will be at
each of two current levels. The inverse of twice the shortest
time interval determines maximum cycling rate. Shorter time
intervals, with fast transitions between loading, stress the
power source and provide insight into its stability.
In addition to testing response to fast load changes, it can
also be important to determine whether your device can
respond at the rate that the load is changing. Ensure
electronic load slew rates, often specified in A/µs, are high
enough to test your device to its slew rate specifications.
Ensure these rates are programmable so the electronic load’s
range of slew rates meets your application needs.
4
Safety Testing
Verifying that your power source does not fail under fault
conditions is of critical importance. This is particularly true for
a short circuit load condition. Electronic loads can be set for
short circuits conditions with the load operating near 0V with
milliohm load impedance. Make sure the electronic load you
select has short circuit test features.

CHOOSING YOUR COUNTER/TIMER
To help you choose the right counter/timer for your needs, the most common selection criteria are listed
below, along with helpful tips for determining your requirements.
1
Frequency Resolution
The frequency resolution is the smallest change the counter/
timer can detect in closely spaced frequencies. The resolution
is influenced by the time setting on the instrument, i.e.,
longer time settings (averaged) will display more digits.
In general this feature is expressed as the number of digits
per second shown on the instrument’s display (e.g., 12
digits/s). More digits indicate a higher frequency resolution.
2
Time Resolution
For timing measurements this feature represents the
smallest “time” change that the instrument can detect.
Time resolution is sometimes described as “single shot”
resolution and is generally measured in picoseconds,
e.g., 50 ps. The lower the number, the better the time
resolution feature.
3
Time Base Stability
The internal time base establishes the reference against
which input signals are measured. The better the time base,
the more accurate your measurements can be. Most counters
employ a quartz crystal as the internal time base element,
which comes in 3 basic types; Room Temperature (RTXO),
Temperature Compensated (TCXO) and Oven Control (OCXO).
TCXO and OCXO devices are more stable and when used as
the internal time base, the instrument will consistently yield
accurate and reliable results.
4
Analysis Capability
When choosing your counter/timer, you should review
available analysis modes, such as trend plotting, measurement
statistics, histograms and modulation domain analysis to
ensure your needs are met.

“How am I supposed to observe signal integrity, jitter or even
drift issues in my frequency measurements with only a numeric
readout?” A simple numeric reading gives you only part of
the story. An equally important question is: “How stable is the
oscillator frequency in my circuit after several periods?”
Understanding this and other questions requires looking at
measurement statistics. What is the average value of my
signal? What is the standard deviation or Allan deviation of my
measurement? Tektronix FCA3000, FCA3100 and MCA3000
