Using MATLAB with Tektronix Instruments

MATLAB® software (available from MathWorks) extends the functionality of Tektronix instruments – including oscilloscopes, spectrum analyzers and signal generators – by enabling users to make customized measurements, perform data analysis, generate arbitrary waveforms and develop automated tests.

  • Custom Data Analysis with Performance Real-Time Oscilloscopes;  Using MATLAB with Tektronix DPO/MSO5000, DPO7000 & DPO/DSA/MSO70000 Series Real-time Oscilloscopes is easier with functions integrated within the MATH operation of the oscilloscopes. This capability enables custom MATLAB analysis and visualization functions directly into the oscilloscope measurement system.
  • Custom Data Analysis with Mid-Range Real-Time Oscilloscopes;  Using MATLAB with Tektronix DPO/MSO4000, MDO4000 and DPO/MSO3000 Series Real-time Oscilloscopes enables Tektronix oscilloscope users to acquire and analyze data, graphically visualize data, make custom measurements, generate reports, and develop automated applications.
