Oscilloscope offers a new level of insight

Tektronix describes its DPO (digital phosphor oscilloscope) as a new class of instrument that provides the performance and information necessary for working with complex electronic signals.

Unlike ARTs and DSOs, the DPO displays, stores and analyses in real time, using three dimensions of signal information – amplitude, time, and the distribution of amplitude over time. These three dimensions provide, says Tektronix, new insight into the behaviour of complex signals.
