Key performance specifications
The TBS2000B Series of Oscilloscopes with a 9-inch WVGA display, 5 million point record length and 2 GS/s sample rate, capture and display significantly more signal to help you debug and validate the designs faster. Easily and confidently analyze your signals with new on-waveform cursor readouts and 32 automated measurements, each with informative tips. The TekVPI® probe interface supports traditional passive BNC probes, but also enables wide application coverage with the latest active voltage probes and current probes.
Designed to make your work easier
The TBS2000B Series is designed for easy operation and quick hands-on learning. Dedicated controls provide quick access to important settings, so you can evaluate signals faster. With the TBS2000B you get 10 vertical divisions and 15 horizontal divisions, so you can see more of your signal. The large display also offers more room for measurement results and menu information.
The Zoom function lets you quickly pan through the record and zoom in to see signal details. The new on screen cursors overlay the cursor measurements on the screen making them intuitive to read and understand.
Versatile triggering and acquisition modes
The trigger system is designed for troubleshooting today’s mixed signal designs. Beyond a basic edge trigger, it also includes pulse width and runt triggering, which are especially useful for troubleshooting digital sections of your designs. Pulse width triggering is perfect for hunting narrow glitches or timeout conditions. Runt trigger is designed to capture signals that are shorter in amplitude than expected.
The Instrument offers several acquisition modes. The default acquisition mode is Sample Mode which works well for most applications. The Peak Detect Mode is useful for hunting spikes, and Average Mode can help reduce noise on repetitive signals.
Automated measurements are easier than ever
A comprehensive set of automated measurements enable fast and convenient testing of a wide variety of signal conditions for different applications. The measurements are grouped into four categories: Frequency, time, amplitude, and area. All the measurements are displayed on a single measurement selection screen making it easy to choose from 32 automated measurements, no more hunting through various menus.
Measurements are color coded by the source, and are presented on a transparent background, so waveforms are not obscured by the readouts. The HelpEverywhere® system provides help texts with graphics to explain how a measurement is performed, making it easier for new users to know which measurement to use and to interpret the results.
