The most valuable features are its ease of use, user interface, and PAM-4. The user interface is good and easy to use.

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.

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.

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.

I haven't seen anything similar where it has a spectrum analyzer and regular scope together.

Tektronix is robust and reliable. It's a hammer-resistant machine, a fact which is most important on our manufacturing floor.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

I would like to see some WiFi capabilities. I would like to upgrade equipment, and if I was in the U.S., I could do that with WiFi capabilities.
