The Tektronix TDS3012C is a 100MHz, two-channel, analog oscilloscope with a maximum real-time sample rate of 1.25GS/s per channel, a record length of 10kpts per channel, and advanced triggers for electronics applications such as product design, assembly lines, repair and servicing, and electrical engineering education, among others. The 3,600wfms/s continuous waveform capture rate identifies faults so they can then be isolated with advance triggers (Edge, Video, Extended video, Pulse width, Runt, Rise/fall time, Pattern, State, Comm, and ALT). The real-time sample rate and the record length enable long capture times for displaying detailed waveforms. Waveform measurements include FFT (fast fourier transform), and advanced math measurements are available with an optional TDS3AAM application module (sold separately).
Additional specifications include a rise time of 3.5ns. The oscilloscope has ethernet and USB ports for communication, and additional ports are available with an optional TDS3GV communications module (sold separately). The TekProbe interface allows use with active, differential, and current probes (sold separately) for automatic scaling and units. The oscilloscope has a 6.5" color TFT-LCD with a resolution of 640 x 480 pixels and an anti-glare surface for viewing waveforms. It is battery-capable with an optional TDS3BATC rechargeable lithium battery pack (sold separately). This analog oscilloscope is Canadian Standards Association (CSA) and European Conformity (CE) approved and meets European Standard (EN) and International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) 61010-1 safety standards.

Oscilloscopes are electrical testing devices used to verify the functionality of an electrical signal generator. Oscilloscopes measure an electrical signal over time, and display the waveform signals in a visual graph. The waveform shows the sweeps (or refresh) of voltage on a vertical (Y) axis, and can display time on a horizontal (X) axis. Details of a waveshape demonstrate the signal over time. Oscilloscopes can display in a digital or analog view. An analog oscilloscope has continuous waveform display, typically in a luminous phosphor. Some oscilloscopes can display more than one channel and type of measurement simultaneously. Some oscilloscopes can capture waveform signals to memory, and recall them. Oscilloscopes may provide real-time intensity grading. Some oscilloscopes have the ability to adjust frequency of display. A constant image will display if a signal is shown at a high frequency. Oscilloscopes can be powered with batteries or electricity, or may have a built-in generator. They may have Canadian Standards Association (CSA) or European Conformity (CE) certification, or a specific category (CAT) safety rating, such as CAT5e. Oscilloscopes are commonly used for testing, measuring, and inspecting in science, engineering, telecommunications, automotive, and industry applications.
Tektronix manufactures test and measurement equipment such as oscilloscopes, signal generators, and protocol, logic, and spectrum analyzers. The company, founded in 1946 and headquartered in Beaverton, OR, meets International Organization for Standardization (ISO) standards 9001 and 14001.
