Digital storage oscilloscopes (DSO) are now on almost every engineer's workbench.However, many dsos are still included with analog real-time (ART) oscilloscopes. Why? This is because both platforms have their own advantages. DSO also provides multi-channel operation and measurement automation and waveform storage. Analog oscilloscope gray display and varying brightness and continuous acquisition function, naturally to view the waveform brought real-time "statistics" function. t highlights the parts of the signal that occur most frequently, but the analog oscilloscope lacks DSO storage and other features.Engineers have not been able to fully rely on one of the oscilloscope structures to meet all signal verification requirements.
DPO: Major structural breakthroughs have been made
Tektronix's new oscilloscope platform, digital fluorescence oscilloscope (DPO), combines the advantages of both analog and digital fields and transcends both technologies.Engineers can now use an instrument that captures all the important information about the waveform: the amplitude, the frequency, and the intensity axis that reveals the amplitude distribution during the measurement.
Digital fluorescence oscilloscope is no less than any major measurement technology breakthroughs.It offers all the benefits of a DSO structure, from digital storage to sophisticated triggering.By digitally simulating the chemical fluorescence process that produces intensity gradient in the analog oscilloscope CRT, it meets the requirements of analog characteristics, such as grayscale display and real-time operation.It converts the digital oscilloscope into a general waveform acquisition instrument.
