Most Helpful Review
We are able to capture the transient domain accurately. I would like them to add more post processing capabilities.
Find out what your peers are saying about Tektronix Oscilloscopes vs. Teledyne LeCroy Oscilloscopes and other solutions. Updated: January 2021.
456,812 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:
"It has digital scopes with a high bandwidth and digitized signal. It can do whatever you want with the signal. Since its user-friendly software allows you to work with the signal, which is pretty cool."
"I trust Tektronix for its accuracy. The probes of solution fit my application. E.g., the speed of probes, the way that it is using probes with designs, and the probes' size."
"The most valuable features are everything they do. We primarily use the O-scopes and they help us figure out what's going wrong with our scope out signals."
"Valuable features include that it's multi-channel... and has bandwidth filtering. The user interface is good."
"The Ipath and measurements are fantastic and simple to implement."
"It has very fast response with deep memory."
"It provides you the best way to view information without opening multiple applications, like a single solution."
"It has a good user interface. It's easy to use, easy to read. It's intuitive."
"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."
"The most valuable feature is the embedded protocol analysis."
"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."
"We are able to capture the transient domain accurately. There are some technical features where you can do FFT."
"Checking how many errors were on the channel by using the protocol analyzer has helped me to improve my design on PCIe PETracers."
"I am not utilizing the full bandwidth of this product."
"I would like if they could have more customer support engagement."
"There is room for improvement when it comes to the screen size. I don't really have a lot of complaints but screen size would be the biggest thing."
"I know you can get the Bit Masks but it's generally really expensive to get the eye diagrams and Bit Masks with it. I wish they were included or cheaper."
"I would like to see more integration into machine learning because that's what we try to apply it to."
"There was a learning curve, which was a little tricky at times. Getting used to the GUI took time because we had to learn the different features."
"If they could make the user interface even more intuitive that would help. If they could make it easier to read, to know where the buttons are, that's all I need."
"The power of the computer inside is weak. Sometimes I send a lot of data and I'll feel the lag... I would like to see them improve the processing power."
"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."
"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."
"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."
"Since we do a lot of post processing when we download our waveforms to our computers, we need more post processing capabilities."
"I would like more technical details on what each packet represents and more information on the flow."
Pricing and Cost Advice
"The prices are compatible with what they offer. Going forward, I would like them to become more competitive and dominant with their pricing in the market."
"They're all pretty expensive. If everything costs that much, I suppose the pricing is fair."
"I would like to see a lower price."
"It's cost-effective... It might cost a lot of money, but if we need it we buy it."
"The pricing is not too high and not too low."
"It could always be cheaper."
"Isolated probes are good to have, as most of the scopes don't have it. It drives up the cost when you have to buy isolated probes."
"Tektronix Oscilloscopes are really expensive for small businesses. The low-end scopes don't really compare performance-wise to what the other companies provide, like RIGOL . Mostly that just has to do with the software options."
"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."
"The bandwidth is pretty expensive on these instruments, so we typically use it all."
"They're fairly competitive for pricing across the industry."
