   The Tektronix TLS216 Logic Scope is a new class of instrument designed to simplify the task of debugging digital hardware. The Logic Scope seamlessly combines in a single instrument the analog acquisition system of a high-speed digital storage oscilloscope (DSO) with the triggering and display systems of a logic analyzer. The 500-MHz bandwidth Logic Scope samples all channels simultaneously at 2 GS/s and has sophisticated time-qualified triggering, a high-resolution color display and an integrated MS DOS-compatible 3.5-inch floppy disk drive.

Sophisticated Triggering to Identify Complex Digital Problems

   In addition to edge trigger, most digital signals can be easily captured using pulse, glitch, and pattern triggers. The Logic Scope provides two new trigger resources that allow the instrument to directly trigger on common digital circuit behavior. The industry's first time-interval or sequence trigger type monitors the time between two events, allowing the instrument to easily trigger on setup time violations, hold-time violations, or unexpected propagation delay. The powerful "Time-out" trigger type can be used to capture incomplete handshake sequences or to trigger the instrument when the DUT "hangs".

   All of these trigger types let developers identify channel-to-channel relationships, including 16-bit patterns and time-related/time-qualified system faults. The Logic Scope's external trigger input can be used as a "Trigger Arm" to enhance cross-triggering between two instruments, simplifying the task of using a Logic Scope with other test equipment.

2.5-pF, Low-Mass FET Probes Ensure Nonintrusive Connection

   The Logic Scope includes a set of 16 specially designed probes that have extremely low probe-tip mass (1.5 grams) and input capacitance (2.5 pF). The P6240 low probe-tip mass ensures that connections made to surface-mount and fine-pitch ICs will be reliable. The low input capacitance, combined with the 1-megohm input resistance, decreases the effect of the probe on the DUT's operation, allowing very accurate measurements to be made with confidence.
