Tektronix Seminar on ultra-high speed oscilloscope

Tektronix invites you to attend to an interesting presentation about the exciting world of high-performance oscilloscopes. The talk will start with an introduction to the basic principle of both equivalent-time and real-time oscilloscopes, summarize the capabilities, advantages and limitations of each platform, and highlight the key applications they are used for.

During the talk you will learn about real-time sampling architectures, and state-of-the-art technologies that are used in modern oscilloscopes to achieve highest bandwidth and lowest noise performance.

We will finally present several practical applications, where real-time oscilloscopes are used for.

After the talk, interested participants are invited to join a hands-on session in the PhotoNext laboratory on a 200 Gsample/s real time oscilloscope.
