How to get the best from your oscilloscope
Check out Lee Morgan's latest "how to" videos. This week we feature:
No matter how good your oscilloscope, it's only ever as good as the probe connected to it. Probes are vital to making accurate and safe measurements - make sure your scope can make use of these vital measurement accessories.
Tektronix probes ensure the highest signal fidelity possible when connecting a device to your oscilloscope. With over 100 probe choices available, all perfectly matched to our scopes, you can be sure we'll have the right probe for your application.
Use Farnell's new online probe selection guide to ensure you get the right match.
A source measure unit (SMU) instrument is a five-in-one tool. It combines the useful features of a digital multimeter (DMM), power supply, current source, electronic load and pulse generator, all in one compact instrument. Watch the short video above for details.
Then check out the Keithley SMU Selector Guide, which guides you through how to choose the best SMU for your application.
Characterise with confidence!
Keithley's new 2601B-PULSE System SourceMeter 10 μs Pulser/SMU Instrument with PulseMeter™ technology is an industry-leading high current/high speed pulser with measure plus the full functionality of a traditional SMU.

TekDrive turns your oscilloscope into the industry's FIRST remotely collaborative instrument
TekDrive is the first oscilloscope-to-cloud software solution to facilitate data collaboration directly on an oscilloscope, PC, phone, or tablet. With TekDrive, you can upload, store, organize, search, download, and share files from any connected device. Tektronix files, like .wfm, .isf, .tss, and .csv (in standard formats) can be analyzed and explored directly in your web browser with interactive waveform explorers. Click HERE to find out more and sign up for a FREE 14-DAY TRIAL, or watch our short video below.
Working from home doesn't have to delay your projects. Tek's new “Engineering From Home” web page provides remote work solutions enabling to you to control your instrument from home, and to help you keep your projects on track and ensure "business as usual" while travel restrictions are in place.
Tek are also offering a remote demo facility, so you can get a live demo, tailored to your specific measurement challenge(s) without you, or the Tek/Keithley expert, having to travel. Click HERE to find out more or to book your demo.
It includes details of our software which allows them to access and control Tektronix instruments from home - TekScope, KickStart, SignalVu-PC, SourceXpress etc. It also includes tips for staying productive when working from home, plus “how to” videos on using the software
Oscilloscopes come in many different sizes, configurations and capabilities ...
From general purpose bench oscilloscopes to high performance oscilloscopes they vary widely in terms of the speed of signals they can capture and analyze. Today, the most common type of oscilloscope used on an engineer's bench is a digital oscilloscope.
The categories of a digital oscilloscope include: Digital Storage Oscilloscope (DSO), Digital Phosphor Oscilloscope (DPO), Mixed Signal Oscilloscope (MSO), and Mixed Domain Oscilloscope (MDO). This video explains these different types of oscilloscopes and the differences between them.
The TBS2000B Series oscilloscopes are perfect for both engineers and educators with easy-to-use controls, automated measurements and built-in instruction features. The built-in features make instruction in engineering fundamentals easier for both students and teachers. Learn more.
