The Tektronix TDS7404 oscilloscopes are high performance solutions for verification, debug and characterization of sophisticated electronic designs. The family features exceptional signal acquisition performance, operational simplicity and open connectivity to the design environment. Classic analog-style controls, a large touch-sensitive display and graphical menus provide intuitive control. Open access to the Microsoft Windows operating system enables unprecedented customization and extensibility.

Superior Performance

TDS7000 models range from 500 MHz to 4 GHz bandwidth with single-shot sample rates to 20 GS/s, meeting demands of the latest high speed logic families and multi-Gigabit communication standards. Acquisition memory options from 2 to 32 Megasamples maximize the value of high sample rate and ensure that critical events are captured with fine detail.

High performance jitter analysis to 1 psRMS is achieved through exceptional trigger and acquisition performance, deep memory and applied software.

TDS7000 Series high bandwidth signal access solutions include the P7240 4 GHz (120 ps rise time) active probe and the P7330 3 GHz (< 130 ps rise time, typical, < 140 ps guaranteed) differential probe. Small form- factors and a wide array of tip accessories ensure effectiveness. In addition, the TDS7404 includes the TekConnect™ signal interconnect system. This interface replaces traditional BNC input connectors with a convenient positivelocking interface suitable for higher system bandwidths. P7000 Series probes are directly compatible with TekConnect signal interconnect system along with adapters that provide SMA, BNC and N connections.
