The ability to have the serial protocol analysis is key. 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.
How has it helped my organization?
Being able to monitor data from a CAN bus while the vehicle is running will cut down a lot of the feedback for the design mode. I can obtain things quicker because I can figure out exactly why things… more»
What needs improvement?
We would like more features for the CAN bus decoding, such as importing DDC files, which allows us to take the raw data and convert it into engineering units. So, if I wanted to look at speed from a… more»
What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?
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… more»
Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?
When I first started using an oscilloscope, it was a Tektronix. That is what my university had. There was a learning curve, but it was mostly associated with the fact that I did not know how to use an… more»
What other advice do I have?
It is really solid hardware. The only room for improvement is the software. Make sure that you understand what you are going to use these oscilloscopes for and don't spend money on features which you… more»
