    Tektronix TDS2012C Digitizing Oscilloscope

    Performance You Need at a Price You Can Afford

    The TDS2012C Digital Storage Oscilloscope provides you with affordable performance in a compact design. Packed with standard features - including USB connectivity, 16 automated measurements, limit testing, data logging, and context-sensitive help - the TDS2012C digital oscilloscope helps you get more done, in less time.

    Digital Precision for Accurate Measurements
    With 100 MHz bandwidth and 2 GS/s sample rate, no other digital storage oscilloscope offers as much bandwidth and sample rate for the price. Tektronix proprietary sampling technology provides real-time sampling with a minimum of 10X oversampling on both channels, all the time to accurately capture your signals. Sampling performance is not reduced when using both channels.

    Critical Tools for Troubleshooting Your Device
    Advanced triggers - rising/falling edge, pulse width, and video - help you quickly isolate your signals of interest. Once you've captured a signal, advanced math capabilities and automated measurements can speed your analysis. Quickly perform an FFT or add, subtract, or multiply waveforms. Sixteen automated measurements quickly and reliably calculate important signal characteristics such as frequency or rise time, while the built-in Limit Test function enables you to easily identify problems in your signal.

    Flexible Data Transfer
    The USB host port on the front panel enables you to save your instrument settings, screenshots, and waveform data in a flash. The built-in data logging feature means you can set up your oscilloscope to save user-specified triggered waveforms to a USB memory device for up to 8 hours.

    Easy PC Connectivity
    Easily capture, save, and analyze measurements results by connecting to your PC with the rear-panel USB device port and the included copy of OpenChoice PC Communications Software. Simply pull screen images and waveform data into the stand-alone desktop application or directly into Microsoft Word and Excel. Alternatively, if you prefer not to use your PC, you can simply print your image directly to any PictBridge-compatible printer.

    Lifetime WarrantyLifetime Warranty
    Depend on Tektronix to provide you with performance you can count on. In addition to industry leading service and support, every TDS2000C Series oscilloscope comes backed with a Lifetime Warranty as standard. (Limitations apply. For terms and conditions, click here.)
