User-installed Oscilloscope-resident Enhanced Printing Utility

Electronic design engineers in the disk drive, communications and other related industries that use long records need to view a hardcopy of a long record. Customers in the disk drive industry want to view anomalies on certain sectors of data. Customers designing modems want hardcopies of start-up sequences that detail threshold changes with different digital modulation schemes. Bio-Medical customers want to print out long records to evaluate several minutes of activity from their pacemakers.

Tektronix now offers a solution that provides enhanced printing capabilities for the industry-leading TDS oscilloscopes. Using the familiar TDS user interface, customers can now easily navigate long records and conveniently print only screens that are of interest to them.
