Higher Speeds Demand
Greater Bandwidth
You face faster clock rates and edge
speeds, increasingly complex signals and
mounting time-to-market pressures. The
higher the bandwidth of your oscilloscope,
the more accurate the reproduction of
your signal. The TDS3000B Series offers
a wide range of bandwidths from 100 MHz
to 600 MHz to best suit the needs of your
most demanding projects, so that you
can complete your tasks on time and
with confidence.
Quickly Debug and Characterize
Signals with DRT Sampling
Technology and Sin(x)/x
An increase in performance from 500 to
600 MHz bandwidth offers a 20% improvement
in rise-time measurement accuracy, as
illustrated with these measurements of a
20 ps rising edge. The lower trace is a
reference waveform, showing the rise-time
performance of a 500 MHz oscilloscope.
The upper trace shows the improved
performance of a 600 MHz oscilloscope.
WaveAlert® waveform anomaly detection
alerts you to any waveform that deviates
from the “normal” input, such as the glitch
on channel 2.
The TDS3054B’s 5 GS/s real-time sample
rate and sin(x)/x interpolation ensure accurate
reconstruction of a 500 MHz sine wave.
Even with 2 GS/s sample rate, which
exceeds the Nyquist requirement of 2X
oversampling, this 500 MHz oscilloscope
with linear interpolation does not provide
accurate reconstruction of the same
500 MHz sine wave.
The TDS3000B Series combines unique
digital real-time (DRT) sampling technology
with sin(x)/x interpolation to allow you to
accurately characterize a wide range of
signal types on all channels simultaneously.
This sampling technology makes it
possible to capture high-frequency
information, such as glitches and edge
anomalies, that eludes other oscilloscopes
in its class, while sin(x)/x interpolation
ensures precise reconstruction of each
waveform. The result – a complete view
of your signal to speed debug and
