The Tektronix TBS1072B-EDU Digital Storage Oscilloscope Series provides you with affordable performance in a compact design. Packed with standard features - including USB connectivity, 34 automated measurements, limit testing, data logging, frequency counter, trend plot and a context-sensitive help menu - the Tektronix TBS1072B-EDU Oscilloscopes helps you get more done, in less time.

Seeing signal details

To properly analyze signals you need to make sure that you can see them in enough detail. The Tektronix TBS1072B-EDU comes standard with a 7-inch high resolution TFT display for a clear view of all of your signals and critical on-screen information. The interface is easy to use, provides quick access to all of the oscilloscope functions and includes a high resolution "Pan & Zoom" feature enabling you to see even more signal details of up to 10 times normal resolution.

Digital precision for accurate measurements

With up to 200 MHz bandwidth, 2 GS/s maximum sample rate and 3% vertical measurement accuracy the Tektronix TBS1072B-EDU allows you to see the details of your signals. With the Tektronix proprietary sampling technology there are no compromises, you will get the stated real-time sampling rate on all channels, all the time with at least of 10X oversampling. The sampling performance is not reduced when changing horizontal settings or when using multiple channels, enabling you to see the true characteristics of your signals.

Critical tools for troubleshooting your device

The Tektronix TBS 1072B-EDU oscilloscope comes standard with a variety of advanced triggers used to debug today's complex circuitry. Flexible options for utilizing rising or falling edges, pulse widths and video trigger set-ups enable users to quickly isolate their signals of interest.

Once signals are captured, the Tektronix TBS1072B-EDU offers advanced math and measurement capabilities making it easy to evaluate signal quality. Users can add, subtract and multiply waveforms or use any one of 34 automated measurements to quickly and reliably calculate important signal characteristics such as frequency, rise time or overshoot.

A dedicated front panel button provides quick access to the FFT function that is capable of showing both frequency and time domain waveforms simultaneously, which provides a convenient way to see the relationship between signals and the FFT results.

For accurate frequency measurements the Tektronix TBS-1072B-EDU also comes with built-in dual channel frequency counters. Independent control of each counter's trigger level provides an easy way to monitor two different signal frequencies simultaneously.

Courseware feature

The innovative Courseware feature sets up an education ecosystem by combining powerful PC Course Editor software with the Tektronix TBS/1072B-EDU instruments and a Courseware landing page. The new feature gives educators the ability to create lab descriptions and instructions and then upload the material directly onto a Tektronix TBS1072B-EDU oscilloscope. Existing labs can be modified with content that directly supports recent lectures or explores new ideas discovered in class discussions. Students can perform their lab work directly on the oscilloscope and record their progress in are port file consisting of oscilloscope screen captures. Courseware materials can easily be shared between different labs, professors at the same institution or even between educators from around the world. The Tektronix Courseware Web Page is set up to make it easy for educators to share their own course material or get inspired by reviewing new and interesting ideas from their peers.

PC Course Editor software

It all starts with the PC Courseware editor tool. This Windows based application provides the framework in which the courseware is developed. With simple Windows tools instructors can create new labs or edit existing labs using text, images, formulas or tables. A profile signature can also be created that identifies the professor, class or school.

The basic building block of the Courseware content is the Lab section. An overview, equipment set-ups, theory discussions and step by step instructions can all be included in this section. When the labs are completed a course can be created. In general, a course is made up of several labs with related topics, for example a basic digital course may consist of lab topics that include; "Basic Boolean Logic", "Simple AND & OR Gates", "Clocks", "Metastable Devices", "Memory Devices", etc. Individual Labs can be shared among multiple courses enabling professors to cater course material to a specific audience. Once all of the courses are defined a package/workspace file is created which contains all of the courses with their related labs and enables the content to be uploaded onto a Tektronix TBS1072B-EDU oscilloscope.

To accommodate regional differences the Courseware PC software and the help wizard support is available in 11 different languages.

The oscilloscope courseware features

When the workspace file is loaded onto an instrument, students can easily access the content by using the dedicated "Course" button located on the front panel. Using the Tektronix TBS 1072B-EDU's soft keys and the multipurpose knob, students can access up to 8 courses which can have up to 30 labs each. To accommodate situations where and instrument is used for several classes, up to 100 MB of course material can be stored on the oscilloscope. Once a lab is chosen, the student is able to review the overview section,perform the lab using the step-by-step procedure, collect data, check & save the data results and generate reports that show the waveforms created for each step in the procedure. And all of this work can be done directly on the Tektronix TBS1072B-EDU oscilloscope.

Tektronix Courseware landing page

To help educators find new and interesting ideas for creating content for their labs Tektronix has created a Courseware Web page. At this site, users can download and customize relevant course material or upload material to share their own labs with peers. The site also contains a comprehensive search engine that allows visitors to search for labs by key word, author,category, topic and/or language. Although registration for the site is required, once registered, users are able to download or upload material and they will also be able to comment on material that they've used.
