• RE: Ethernet Signal Mask on MSO44 with 4-SRENET

    Hi Gary,<br> <br> 4-SRENET is for Ethernet triggering and analysis (aka decoding), not compliance testing.<br> Our compliance testing package is a part of TekExpress, which is a Windows based application and so requires an oscilloscope running Windows. The MSO4 is not capable of running Windows, you will need an MSO5 or higher to use TekExpress.<br> <br> Please contact your account manager if you wish to return the instrument.

    Hi,<br> <br> We no longer sell a rack mount kit for the AFG1000.
  • RE: MSO58 Python Socket Get PNG

    Hi,<br> <br> I would strongly suggest staying away from raw sockets as much as possible.<br> <br> Some people do seem to have been able to get pyvisa working on apple silicon: <a href="https://github.com/pyusb/pyusb/issues/355">https://github.com/pyusb/pyusb/issues/355</a><br> You will probably need to use PyVISA-py as the backend: <a href="https://pypi.org/project/PyVISA-py/">https://pypi.org/project/PyVISA-py/</a>
  • RE: When to use clock recovery for rise time on MSO4 series?

    Transition bits are those which go from one digital state to the other and then back in the least amount of clock cycles possible (2 clock cycles).<br> <br> As an example, for rise time, the transition bits would be those that meet a 1 0 1 pattern.<br> A 1 0 0 1 pattern would not meet this definition and so would be excluded from the measurements. 1 0 1 1 would as that meets the 1 0 1 pattern (what comes after does not matter).<br> <br> These transition bits are often the most testing (aka worst case) of a system and so there's particular interest in measuring them.
  • RE: Serial bus decoding not as expected

    <p>I wouldn't say it works fine on the MSO5. Yes, I can get it to decode somewhat closer to what you expected but it still throws a sync error at the end.</p> <p>This leads me to believe the waveform itself is somehow misshapen (I don't know enough about 1553 to say how exactly) and the MSO5 simply has a slightly different decoding procedure which I have abused to force it to decode something else. I have attached screenshots with the bus decode table to show that.</p> <p></p> <p>It would be useful to know the minimum and maximum RT of the measured system.</p>
  • RE: SCPI Command(s) to read back waveform Search on MSO456 Series

    Hi Michael,<br> <br> This is becoming a rather complex question, it would be best to have your field applications engineer help you directly.<br> You should have gotten an email from him on this matter.
  • RE: Serial bus decoding not as expected

    Hi Matthew,<br> I apologize for the delay.<br> <br> I tried the waveform on one of our MSO4000B's and got the same decoding. Next I tried it on an MSO5 and I got it to decode properly, but only with maximum response time (RT) set to 4.1 us or lower (screenshot attached).<br> I tried setting the maximum RT to below 4.1 us on the MSO4000B but was not able to successfully decode the bus. Further work is needed to understand this issue.<br> <br> I would suggest changing changing the time/div and RT maximum and minimum and seeing how that affects the decoding, it might be possible to make progress that way.
  • RE: Save screen capture from MSO64B to my PC via usb connection by writing programming

    Hi Penny,<br> <br> Yes, the USB device port on the back of the instrument can be used for remote control.<br> <br> That example you posted uses NI-VISA libraries, which I do not use or support.<br> <br> And yes, you have to use two commands to transfers an image to your PC.<br> <br> I have written an example Python3 program to transfer images from MSO2/4/5/6, please find it attached with this post.
  • RE: P75LRST rough cut characteristic impedance: 50 ohms or High-Z tip?

    Hi Herman,<br> <br> The DC differential impedance is 100 kOhm. The AC differential impedance is frequency dependent and given on page 28 of the <a href="https://www.tek.com/en/p7513-manual/p7500-series-rev">technical reference</a>.<br> <br> As you can see, the AC impedance is more than 50 Ohms (in the rated bandwidth) but not as high as the DC impedance, but it is high enough that the tip can be used mid-bus and is, therefore, a &quot;high impedance&quot; probe tip in a relative term.
  • RE: SCPI code compatibility between DPO3014 and MDO34 series

    Hi Sachin,<br> <br> No, the programming interfaces for those machines are not completely identical, some commands will differ.
