DPO4054 Tektronix Digital Oscilloscope
The DPO4054 is a 500 MHz, 4 Channel digital oscilloscope from Tektronix. Digital oscilloscopes make use of binary numbers that correspond to samples of the electronic equipment’s voltage. This is in contrast to analog oscilloscopes, which use continually varying voltages. Digital oscilloscopes use an analog-to-digital converter (ADC) to convert the voltages it measures into digital information.

The Tektronix DPO4054 Digital Phosphor Oscilloscope delivers the performance you need to visualize even your most demanding signals. With a 500 MHz Bandwidth and offering a minimum of 5x oversampling on all channels and sin(x)/x interpolation standard, you can be confident that even the fastest transient events will be captured and displayed accurately. The standard 10 M record length on all channels enables you to capture long windows of signal activity while maintaining fine timing resolution.
Designed to Make Your Work Easier
As design complexity increases, you need tools that help you find problems quickly.
Easy to Setup and Use
The DPO4000 Series has a large 10.4 inch XGA display, a clean front panel with familiar knobs - all in a package that is only 5.4 in. deep and weighs only 11 lb. With USB plug-and-play operation and PC connectivity, acquiring data and measurements from the instrument is as simple as connecting a USB cable from the oscilloscope to the PC.
Provided applications include NI LabVIEW SignalExpress™ Tektronix Edition LE, OpenChoice® Desktop and Microsoft Excel and Word toolbars enabling fast and easy direct communication with your Windows PC. USB and CompactFlash ports on the front panel enable simple transfer of screenshots, instrument settings, and waveform data in the palm of your hand.
Wave Inspector® Navigation
Imagine trying to efficiently use the Internet if search engines such as Google and Yahoo didn’t exist, web browser features such as Favorites and Links didn’t exist, or Internet Service Providers like AOL or MSN weren’t around. Now you know how most modern oscilloscope users feel when Wave Inspector® controls. trying to actually use the long record length in their digital oscilloscope.
Record length, one of the key specifications of an oscilloscope, is the number of samples it can digitize and store in a single acquisition. The longer the record length, the longer the time window you can capture with high timing resolution (high sample rate).
The first digital oscilloscopes could capture and store only 500 points, which made it very difficult to acquire all relevant information around the event being investigated. Over the years, oscilloscope manufacturers have provided longer and longer record lengths to meet market demands for long capture windows with high resolution, to the point that most mid-range oscilloscopes either come standard with, or can be optionally upgraded to, multi-megapoint record lengths. These megapoint record lengths often represent thousands of screens worth of signal activity. While standard record lengths have increased greatly over the years and can now satisfy the vast majority of applications in the marketplace, tools for effectively and efficiently viewing, navigating, and analyzing long record length acquisitions have been sorely neglected until now.
