Software allows remote views and analysis from multiple oscilloscopes
Engineers can remotely view and analyse 32-channel data from multiple oscilloscopes at once, in the same interface using the TekScope PC software from Tektronix.
The waveform analysis PC software accelerates analysis efficiency, says the company which accelerated its development as the global Covid-19 pandemic drastically altered how and where engineers work. As many engineers move to off-scope environments, Tektronix’s Multi-Scope Analysis feature allows the engineer to process, analyse and share data efficiently, without having to be physically next to a scope or in the testing environment.
Unlike competing software, Multi-Scope Analysis enables customers to remotely control the acquisition settings on all scopes simultaneously without the need to set up each scope individually. It has a high resolution to catch very fast glitches across many channels at once.
Raajit Lall, Tektronix general manager of Market Solutions, explained: “TekScope bridges the gap, and helps customers get a sense of a real 32-channel scope, all with a user interface they are familiar with. By using the software to connect to multiple scopes and aggregate the data into a single place, customers can now debug multiple channels simultaneously like never before.”
TekScope is compatible with data taken from all Tektronix scopes so users can leverage Tektronix’s user interface and analysis features for existing scopes. Customers can remotely connect to Tektronix 4/5/6 Series MSO, Tektronix 5/6 Low-Profile scopes, Tektronix DPO 70000C, 70000SX and 70000DX scopes, as well as Tektronix Bench scopes TBS 1000 and TBS 2000. They can also pull real-time data from scopes into the TekScope PC software and conduct further analysis locally while debugging 32 channels.
TekScope PC Software is now available worldwide on a subscription basis.
TekScope PC Software brings the power of the oscilloscope analysis environment to the PC, says Tektronix. Users have the flexibility to perform analysis tasks including serial decode, power analysis, as well as timing, eye and jitter analysis outside the lab. Users can take data from their oscilloscopes and continue the work at any place while sharing analysis results with peers.
TekScope allows users to analyse waveform files from any location at any time, taken from a wide variety of scopes, including other brands, to improve working efficiency, save time and eliminate unnecessary trips to the lab. With TekScope users can free up their scope and allow others to use it while users analyse and debug data on their PCs.
TekScope allows users to work with actual data files, not with screenshots for data sharing. Users can zoom in on waveforms, move cursors, and take measurements while sharing with colleagues.
Multi-scope analysis provides a modular channel system that can be expanded up to 32 channels. With the Multi-Scope license, engineers can use TekScope with new or existing scopes, allowing them to view and analyse real-time data from up to 32 channels on up to four scopes at the same time in a centralised place.
Scopes can be augmented with additional analysis capabilities and TekScope is compatible with data taken from all Tektronix scopes.
