TDS784A Oscilloscope THS700 Oscilloscope

Digital Oscilloscopes

All TSCM teams should have at least two Digital Storage Oscilloscopes, one should be a rugged hand held unit, and the other should be a lab grade unit with a 1 GHz bandwidth.

Al least one unit should be computer controllable, and should be capable of direct postscript printing or computer control.

The units most commonly found in the TSCM industry are the Tektronix TDS784 and the THS720 Digital Oscilloscopes, along with the Fluke 190 series.

Both units are fully computer controllable, rugged, and designed to take years of abuse.

DocuWave software and a PC should be used to control the scopes and store traces and data.

The TDS784 offers 4 channels with a digitizing rate of 1GS/s (1 Billion samples per second) and work well for high resolution TDR work.

When used to monitor the wideband output of a search receiver signals identification is made considerably easier.

The THS720 Digital Oscilloscope offers 2 channels with a digitizing rate of 500 MS /s (500 Million samples per second). It comes in a small handheld case, and works well in the field, an excellent piece of equipment.
