New software enables remote viewing and analysis from multiple scopes at once

Tektronix has a new feature to its TekScope PC Software. TekScope PC Software with enhanced Multi-Scope Analysis enables remote users to view and analyse data from up to 32 channels via multiple scopes at the same time in the same interface, speeding up analysis efficiency.

The company accelerated the development of the software for customers as the global COVID-19 pandemic drastically changed how and where engineers work. As many engineers move to off-scope circumstances, the company's new Multi-Scope Analysis feature enables the engineer to process, analyse and share data efficiently, without requiring to be physically next to a scope or in the testing environment.

“Developing test applications that can support up to 32 oscilloscope channels imposes many feasibility challenges, long development times, and a long time to market,” says Raajit Lall, Tektronix general manager of Market Solutions. “TekScope bridges the gap and helps customers get a sense of a real 32-channel scope, all with a user interface they are familiar with. By using the software to connect to multiple scopes and aggregate the data into a single place, customers can now debug multiple channels simultaneously like never before.”

The software is compatible with data taken from all the company's scopes so users can leverage its UI and analysis features for all existing scopes. Customers are able to remotely connect to Tektronix 4/5/6 Series MSO, Tektronix 5/6 Low-Profile scopes, Tektronix DPO 70000C, 70000SX and 70000DX scopes, as well as Tektronix Bench scopes TBS 1000 and TBS 2000. While doing so, users can extract real-time data from scopes into the software and conduct further analysis locally while debugging 32 channels together.
