Software allows simultaneous analysis on multiple scopes
Tektronix has added a new feature to its TekScope PC software. The software allows remote users to view and analyse data from up to 32 channels from multiple scopes at the same time in the same interface, accelerating analysis efficiency.
Tektronix accelerated the development of TekScope for customers as the global COVID-19 pandemic drastically altered how and where engineers work.
As many engineers move to off-scope environments, Tektronix’s new Multi-Scope Analysis feature allows the engineer to process, analyse and share data efficiently, without having to be physically next to a scope or in the testing environment.
Tektronix claims that unlike competing software the Multi-Scope Analysis feature enables customers to remotely control the acquisition settings on all scopes simultaneously without the need to set up each scope individually.
The launch is in response to customers who asked for a solution with high resolution that can catch very fast glitches across many channels at once.
“Developing test applications that can support up to 32 oscilloscope channels imposes many feasibility challenges, long development times, and a long time to market,” says Raajit Lall, Tektronix General Manager of Market Solutions. “TekScope bridges the gap, and helps customers get a sense of a real 32-channel scope, all with a user interface they are familiar with. By using the software to connect to multiple scopes and aggregate the data into a single place, customers can now debug multiple channels simultaneously like never before.”
TekScope is compatible with data taken from all Tektronix scopes so users can leverage Tektronix’s user interface and analysis features for all existing scopes.
Customers can remotely connect to Tektronix 4/5/6 Series MSO, Tektronix 5/6 Low-Profile scopes, Tektronix DPO 70000C, 70000SX and 70000DX scopes, as well as Tektronix Bench scopes TBS 1000 and TBS 2000.
While doing so, users can pull real-time data from scopes into the TekScope PC software and conduct further analysis locally while debugging 32 channels together.
TekScope PC Software is now available worldwide. Subscription prices start at £529, €613, $689.
