The TDS3000C Series provides you with the performance you need at a price you can afford. Bandwidths range from 100 MHz to 500 MHz, with up to 5 GS/s sample rates for accurate representation of your signal.
The TDS3000C Series offers fast waveform capture rates on a continuous basis that save you time by quickly revealing the nature of faults, so advanced triggers can be applied to isolate them.
Real-time intensity grading highlights the details about the history of a signal's activity, making it easier to understand the characteristics of the waveforms you've captured. Unlike other comparable oscilloscopes, the history remains even after the acquisition has been stopped.
The TDS3000C Series combines unique digital real-time (DRT) sampling technology with sin(x)/x interpolation to allow you to accurately characterize a wide range of signal types on all channels simultaneously. With the TDS3000C Series there is no change in sampling rate when additional channels are turned on, unlike other comparable oscilloscopes. This sampling technology makes it possible to capture high-frequency information, such as glitches and edge anomalies, that elude other oscilloscopes in its class, while sin(x)/x interpolation ensures precise reconstruction of each waveform.
When working under tight deadlines, you need your oscilloscope to be intuitive; you want to minimize time spent learning and relearning how to use it. The TDS3000C Series oscilloscopes help reduce your learning curve. Simple navigation and dedicated front-panel controls get you to where you want to be quickly, so that you spend less time learning and more time on the task at hand.
The TDS3000C Series comes equipped with a USB host port so you can easily store and transfer measurement information to your PC.
OpenChoice®PC Communication Software allows you to simply pull screen images and waveform data into a standalone desktop application or directly into Microsoft Word and Excel.
If you prefer not to use a PC for analysis, the TDS3000C Series comes standard with 25 automatic measurements, waveform add, subtract, divide, and multiply math functions, and Fast Fourier Transform (FFT). Unlike other comparable oscilloscopes, the TDS3000C Series math and measurement allows you to use the full acquisition record length or isolate a specific occurrence within an acquisition.
Utilizing the built-in ethernet port, e*Scope web-based remote control allows you to a control TDS3000C series oscilloscope from anywhere, using the internet and your PC.
The TDS3000C Series packs the power of a DPO in a compact design that is only 5.9 in. (149 mm) deep, freeing up valuable benchtop space. And when you need to move your oscilloscope to another lab, its portable 7 lb. (3.2 kg) design makes for easy transport.
If your work demands even more mobility, then the optional battery pack will give you up to three hours of operation without line power.
