Electronics Test & Measurement Digitizer Digitizer

TEKTRONIX 6 Series Low Profile Digitizer 4-channel device provides up to 8GHz bandwidth, 25GS/s sampling rate and a 12-bit ADC on every channel, all in a space-saving 2U rack form factor. Unit uses firm’s 12-bit Tek049 ASIC on each of its four channels as its 5 and 6 Series Mixed Signal Oscilloscopes. Device is available in multiple bandwidth options ranging from 1GHz to 8GHz and offers a 25GS/s sample rate with low noise performance and an improved number of bits. With patented analog-to-digital converter (ADC) and Digital Down Conversion (DDC) signal paths, users can acquire 2GHz of RF capture bandwidth in Spectrum View while independently controlling the frequency and time domains. To maintain better accuracy over long periods of time, product can run signal path compensation without the need to remove cables or signals.
