Tektronix has announced the TDS1000C-EDU digital oscilloscope series, which for the benefit of first-time oscilloscope users and students, is designed to be affordable and easy to learn and operate.

It also includes an education resource CD to help students master the use of an oscilloscope.

The TDS1000C-EDU enables educators to train their students on the oscilloscope, using scopes that match what they are likely use when they start work.

Not only are oscilloscopes the top hardware tool used by embedded designers per the 2010 EE Times Group Embedded Market Study, but eight out of 10 electronics engineers currently use Tektronix oscilloscopes.

Based on Tektronix’s most popular oscilloscope platform, the TDS1000C-EDU series include 40, 60 and 100MHz models all designed for use in education.

The new scopes provide digital real-time sampling on all channels, allowing students to accurately characterise a wide range of signal types on all channels simultaneously.

Flexible triggering options such as edge trigger, pulse-width trigger and line-selectable triggering let students quickly capture desired waveforms.

To make the instruments simple to learn and easy to operate, they feature a front panel with dedicated controls and USB connectivity; built-in help menus; an autoset function for easily setting up the oscilloscope; an automated probe-check wizard and multiple language support.

The included Education Resource CD provides critical tools to help students master the use of an oscilloscope, including two labs and instructor’s guides, as well as two primers.

The Introduction to Oscilloscopes Student Lab and Instructor’s Guide explains the basics of oscilloscope operation, complete with hands-on exercises for students.

The Introduction to Oscilloscope Probes Student Lab and Instructor’s Guide explains the fundamentals of probing and how probes can affect measurement quality.

The two Primers included are Tektronix’s most widely-used: the XYZs of oscilloscopes and ABCs of probes.

Collectively, they give educators important tools for simplifying the integration of the TDS1000C-EDU series into their existing curriculum.

Every TDS1000C-EDU model ships with a general-purpose passive probe for each analogue channel, together with a three-year warranty.
