Choosing Your Oscilloscope

Oscilloscopes

Oscilloscope Selection Guides, Pages 5 - 7

Choosing Your Oscilloscope

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.

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

Frequency (GHz)

1.0

Figure 1: Typical frequency response curve for a general purpose oscilloscope

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

Today’s oscilloscopes offer more than just analog channels for system-level troubleshooting of complex designs.

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.

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)

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.

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.

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.

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 re-produced waveform. While more is better there is a general trade-off for most arbitrary waveform instruments, the higher the resolution the lower the sample rate.

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.

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.

Replicating Real World Signals with an

Arbitrary/Function Generator

Application Note

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

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 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 Source Measure Unit (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.

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.

Sourcing Resolution and

Output Stability

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.

Measurement Settling Time, Offset

Error, and Noise

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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

>30Amps), make sure there are transducers available that are well-matched to the analyzer and offer the accuracy you need.

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 Digital Multimeter

To help you choose the right digital multimeter for your needs, the most common selection criteria are listed below, along with helpful tips for determining your requirements.

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.

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.

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.

Most of Keithley’s DMM’s (excluding Models 2100 and 2110) include an option slot located in the rear, to accommodate a scanner card enabling automated multipoint measurements. www.keithley.com/dmm 37

Measurement Statistics and Histograms with the Tektronix DMM4050 and DMM4040

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 cursory look at key decision points in the design of a switching system.

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.

Three key relay types are used. Electromechanical 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 cost still more, but offer the best life and speed with no contact wear or bounce.

Connection types found on switch cards include both screw terminals and mass-terminated connectors. At the instrument level, TSPLink master/slave connection offers easy system expansion between Series 3700A mainframes and to connect to

Series 2600B SourceMeter instruments.

Low-Level Instrument Selection

Low-Level Instruments

Scientists and researchers worldwide rely on Keithley Electrometers, Picoammeters, and

Nanovoltmeters for making low-level measurements beyond the capabilities of a typical digital multimeter. Keithley Electrometers and Picoammeters provide low current and high resistance measurements and Keithley Nanovoltmeters measure low voltages.

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.

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.

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.

Measurements

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 10M Ω, the correct solution is an Electrometer or

Picoammeter.

Low Voltage/Low Resistance

Measurements

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.

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).

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.

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).

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 battery-operated devices, consider a special purpose battery-simulating supply.

Choosing Your Counter/Timers

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.

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.

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.

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 pico seconds, e.g. 50 ps. The lower the number the better the time resolution feature.

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.

Measurement Statistics, Histograms and Trend Plot Analysis Modes

Using the Tektronix FCA and MCA Series Timer/Counter/Analyzers

Application Note

“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

Series Timer/Counter/Analyzers offer integrated analysis functions to help you quickly answer these questions.

Choosing Your RF Power Meter

Power measurements are fundamental to the development cycle of any RF or microwave product, from radios to radars. To help you choose the right Power Sensor/Meter combination, the most common selection criteria are listed below, along with helpful tips for determining your requirements.

Measurement integrity is a combination of the cumulative measurement uncertainty and instrument stability. While the measurement uncertainty is usually specified, the instrument stability includes several factors. By providing calibration over the entire temperature operating ranges and not requiring zeroing prior to measurement, the improved stability of the power sensor/meter reduces possible human errors and assures the integrity of measured results.

Power measurements tend to dominate the test process of wireless device test. The speed of measurement should remain constant over the entire dynamic range of the sensor. USB connectivity and power enable high speed measurement throughput and help reduce system rack space.

Basic power measurements of continuous wave (CW) signals are fundamental to power sensor/meters. However, today’s modern signals include modulation, pulses, or other time-varying attributes. Being able to correct for duty cycle, measure peak power, signal statistics, and triggering inputs and outputs increase the utility of the power sensor/meter combination.

When integrating power measurements into a full system measurement process, you should review the available analysis software and hardware capabilities to determine if equipment redundancies can be eliminated. Advanced measurement analysis, like trend graphing, statistical measurements, measurement logging, and pulse profiling can replace more complex and expensive equipment needs and simplify device test.
