The TDS 520C oscilloscopes are the latest in the TDS family of digitizing oscilloscopes designed to keep pace with current and evolving needs in advanced electronic design and debug. They are also powerful tools for communication design and R&D applications.
At over 400,000 waveforms per second, the TDS 500C products with InstaVu acquisition have the fastest waveform capture rate available on an oscilloscope. They allow you to instantly view even the rarest signal events.
Like the other members of the TDS series, the TDS 520C has a well-rounded combination of a graphical user interface, high-fidelity acquisition, advanced triggering, and automatic measurements.
Easy to Learn and Easy to Use
Extensive user interface design has made the TDS family of products truly intuitive to operate. Each family member shares a familiar front panel layout with dedicated vertical, horizontal, and trigger controls. A graphical user interface with over 200 icons helps facilitate understanding and use of the advanced features. A color monitor helps rapidly distinguish between multiple waveforms and measurements. On-line help provides a convenient built-in reference manual.
High Fidelity Signal Acquisition
The high waveform capture rate of the TDS500C InstaVu series, together with its high bandwidth and sample rate, delivers instantaneous signal feedback to show the true signal feedback to show the true signals that other scopes may be missing. InstaVu acquisition acquires waveforms over 1000 times faster than any other DSO, allowing the capture of intermittent signals, reducing debugging times from hours to seconds.
Channels can be transparently combined to achieve higher sample rates and longer record lengths. The record length can be optionally increased to 8M points, providing a high-resolution representation of the signal over a long period of time.
