Most Helpful Review
We are able to capture the transient domain accurately. I would like them to add more post processing capabilities.

339,526 professionals have used our research since 2012.
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
B-scan is its most valuable feature.
We have multiple systems for manufacturing tests, and it's critical for our support. The support increases our productivity.
It is easy to handle, so everyone likes to use it.
Time domain measurement is very accurate compared to other devices.
This solution provides high confidence in the data being presented in the measurement to inform a design decision going forward.
The user interface is good, not very complicated. It is very intuitive.
The most valuable features are its ease of use, user interface, and PAM-4. The user interface is good and easy to use.
The sensitivity of the trigger and the reliability are the most valuable features.
Checking how many errors were on the channel by using the protocol analyzer has helped me to improve my design on PCIe PETracers.
We are able to capture the transient domain accurately. There are some technical features where you can do FFT.
It has a nice high-resolution screen. It is easy to set up the scope triggers, has a lot of scope trigger options for capturing waveforms, and seamlessly goes into the spectrum analysis mode.
The most valuable feature is the embedded protocol analysis.
We heavily use it to validate the design assumption. In many cases, it was able to point out things that were not available to us in simulation.
We are looking for an Intel platform with the newest chipset.
I use microservices, but you cannot really probe it, since the technology is not really there.
If you are dealing with time domain measurement, I strongly recommend using a vendor other than this company.
There are other devices out there which are more capable, offering more features, with as good quality tech support.
I want the system to have a wider bandwidth because high-speed continues to move faster, so there is more bandwidth to cover.
On the source side, their AWGs don't have enough bandwidth. They need to increase the bandwidth of their AWGs, meaning they have to have a faster sample rate.
It needs one button and every time you push it, you get whatever you need.
I wish we could turn off the automatic measurement feature of the oscilloscope, for teaching purposes.
I would like more technical details on what each packet represents and more information on the flow.
Since we do a lot of post processing when we download our waveforms to our computers, we need more post processing capabilities.
They could always work on the software stability of the products, particularly now that everything has switched over to a Windows-based interface. It creates a lot of crashes and bugs, which typically is a problem among all instruments.
The interconnect methods to the device are a little limited right now. I'd like to see other ways of being able to connect to the device.
I would like them to be current with the latest standards. So, as soon as a new standard comes in, ensure that it gets rolled into the existing software.
Pricing and Cost Advice
The pricing is okay. It was within our budget.
It costs a quarter of a million. This technology is not cheap.
We demoed the product before purchasing it.
Tecktronix pricing tends to be pretty fair and reasonable with current market trends. They don't usually bump up the price too much.
The cost has room for improvement. Though compared to other companies, it's okay.
In the 100 gigabit Ethernet and 400 gigabit Ethernet category, everything is in the multi-hundred thousand dollar range, so it was fair pricing because everything is expensive.
They have academic pricing which is helpful.
Pricing could be lower. I would want to buy it for an extremely, low price, but Tektronix is a high-end product.
The bandwidth is pretty expensive on these instruments, so we typically use it all.
They're fairly competitive for pricing across the industry.
I would like them to include a lot of the add-on options as part of the package. Typically, we start in at a price, and by the time we add up all the options that we need which are available, we are at double or triple the original price.
