70-GHz Signal Test Setup at the University of Manitoba’s Advanced RF Systems Lab (ARFSL)
Additionally, this scope can be connected with either or both of CMC’s Tektronix DPO73304SX 33 GHz Real-Time Oscilloscopes using the UltraSync cable to enable higher channel counts of one 70 GHz and multiple 33 GHz and 20 GHz channels as needed.
The DPO7000SX series oscilloscopes are a modular, rack‑mountable design with a small viewing screen. They are designed to be embedded in test environments and interconnected with other DPO7000SX series oscilloscopes to enable multi‑port operation, while being operated by an external keyboard, mouse and monitor. Users must supply their own monitor.
