Tektronix has jumped back into the game at the top end of real-time oscilloscopes with the introduction of the DPO70000SX series. The latest product introduction by the company has enabled it to snatch the second place.

DPO70000SX oscilloscope

The Tektronix DPO70000SX oscilloscope, with bandwidth up to 70GHz, puts the company back in the thick of the bandwidth race.

At 70GHz, the DPO70000SX surpasses Keysight's 63GHz 96204Q Infiniium oscilloscope and Teledyne LeCroy's 65GHz Wavemaster 10 Zi. However, Teledyne LeCroy's 100GHz Wavemaster 10-100Zi oscilloscope still holds the lead.

The fact that Tektronix has jumped into second place in the bandwidth race makes it clear that the company has dispelled any talk of it being out of the game. Ever since the 60GHz, 63GHz, 65GHz and 100GHz oscilloscopes have been announced, the word at DesignCon and OFC has been "Where's Tektronix?" Now, we know.

Infiniium 96204Q

At 63GHz, Keysight's (then Agilent's) Infiniium 96204Q held the top bandwidth spot for 13 days in 2012 until Teledyne LeCroy announced 65GHz.
