The TDS 784C 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 TDS 784C with InstaVuTM Acquisition has 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 784C products have a well-rounded combination of a graphical user interface, high-fidelity acquisition, advanced triggering, automatic measurements, and complementary measurement accessories.

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 and Signal Acquisition

The high waveform capture rate of the TDS 700C InstaVu series, together with its high bandwidth and sample rate, delivers instantaneous 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 to8M points, providing a high-resolution representation of the signal over a long period of time. All of the TDS products provide wide dynamic range, flat response, fast overdrive recovery, calibrated DC offset, 1 mV/div sensitivity, 1 ns peak detect, and internal calibration.

Powerful and Flexible Triggering

In addition to basic triggering such as edge and pulse-width, these TDS oscilloscopes have several trigger modes tailored for specific design and debug applications. Logic and pulse triggers, including setup/hold, glitch, slew rate, and timeout triggers, capture hard-to-catch digital design problems. The optional video trigger provides line and field selection for NTSC, PAL, and HDTV standards. The optional comm trigger addresses needs to acquire a wide variety of AMI, CMI, and NRZ communication signals.
