Tektronix MSO2024B Oscilloscope Review (December 2013 - updated with some more screenshots) Introduction Oscilloscopes have been around for over a hundred years, and traditionally they served a role similar sounding to their name; they were used for observing oscillations which by their nature tended to be repetitive. Cathode rays were first reported by the British scientist Sir William Crookes in 1878 but it took almost twenty years until the first Cathode Ray Oscillograph (CRO) as it was known at the time was constructed in France at the University of Strasbourg by the German physicist Ferdinand Braun. The early oscilloscopes (in use around the early 1920’s) actually didn’t really have a linear time base; they relied on the fact that a sine wave is approximately a straight line at a few...

<br /> Today I received an MSO2024B oscilloscope from element14.com to review it Many thanks to element14 community for the Roadtest Program <br /> <br /> MSO2024B Characteristics MSO2024B is the best from MSO2000 series. It has 4 analog channels with 200 MHz analog bandwidth (2.1 ns of response time for input step signal). Each of the channel is coupled with 1 GSps ADC (ADC is not shared between two channels, hence there is no drop in sampling speed even if all four channels are activated). Moreover, this oscilloscope is from Mixed Signal Oscilloscope series (MSO), so it has additional 16 channels for digital inputs, which are capable of ±40V input with TTL, CMOS, ECL, PECL predefined trigger thresholds. A user can also define its...

Introduction First and foremost I want to thank Element 14 and Tektronix for the opportunity to evaluate their product. For someone who is somewhat new into the digital circuits and hardware devices, this oscilliscope packs a lot of features to help me understand what is going on behind the scenes with the electronics I experiment with. I intend this to be a multi part review, starting with an initial impression. First, the oscilloscope inlcude the components necessary for me to begin exploring both analog and digital circuits. This included 4 TPP0200 CatII Passive Probes with 200MHz of bandwidth, a P6316 16 channel digital probe, and for test purposes a DPO2EMDB embedded serial triggering and analysis module. Additional modules are available including a DPO2CONN, ethernent and...
