Digital precision for accurate measurements

With up to 200 MHz bandwidth and 2 GS/s maximum sample rate, no other digital storage oscilloscope offers as much bandwidth and sample rate for the price. Tektronix proprietary sampling technology provides real-time sampling with a minimum of 10X oversampling on all channels, all the time to accurately capture your signals. Sampling performance is not reduced when using multiple channels.

Critical tools for troubleshooting your device

Advanced triggers – rising/falling edge, pulse width, and video – help you quickly isolate your signals of interest. Once you’ve captured a signal, advanced math capabilities and automated measurements can speed your analysis. Quickly perform an FFT or add, subtract, or multiply waveforms. Sixteen automated measurements quickly and reliably calculate important signal characteristics such as frequency or rise time, while the built-in Limit Test function enables you to easily identify problems in your signal.

Designed to make your work easy

The TDS2024C oscilloscopes are designed with the ease of use and familiar operation you have come to expect from Tektronix.

Intuitive operation

The intuitive user interface with dedicated per-channel vertical controls, auto-setup, and auto-ranging makes these instruments easy to use, reducing learning time and increasing efficiency.

Help when you need it

The built-in Help menu provides you with important information on your oscilloscope’s features and functions. Help is provided in the same languages as the user interface.


The context-sensitive Help system provides important information specific to the task you are working on.

Probe check wizard

Check out your probe compensation before making measurements with just one button that starts a fast, easy procedure.

Limit test

The oscilloscope can automatically monitor source signals and output Pass or Fail results by judging whether the input waveform is within predefined boundaries. Specific actions can be triggered on violation including stopping waveform acquisition, stopping Limit Test functions, saving the failed waveform data or screen image to a USB memory device, or any combination of the above. This is an ideal solution for manufacturing or service applications where you need to make decisions quickly.


Limit Test provides a quick Pass/Fail comparison of any triggered input signal to a user-defined template.

Flexible data transfer

The USB host port on the front panel enables you to save your instrument settings, screenshots, and waveform data in a flash. The built-in Data Logging feature means you can set up your oscilloscope to save user-specified triggered waveforms to a USB memory device for up to 24 hours. You can also select the “infinite” option for continuous waveform monitoring. With this mode you can save your triggered waveforms to an external USB memory device without a duration limitation until the memory device is full. The oscilloscope will then guide you to insert another USB memory device to continue saving waveforms.


Data Logging enables automatic saving of triggered waveforms.
Conveniently use your USB flash drive to store screenshots and waveform data.

Easy PC connectivity

Easily capture, save, and analyze measurement results by connecting to your PC with the rear-panel USB device port and the included copy of OpenChoice PC Communications Software. Simply pull screen images and waveform data into the stand-alone desktop application or directly into Microsoft Word and Excel. Alternatively, if you prefer not to use your PC, you can simply print your image directly to any PictBridge-compatible printer.

Connect to your bench for intelligent debug

SignalExpress supports the range of Tektronix bench instruments (For a complete listing of Tektronix instruments supported by NI LabView Signal Express, visit:www.tek.com/signalexpress) enabling you to connect your entire test bench. You can then access the feature-rich tools packed into each instrument from one intuitive software interface. This allows you to automate complex measurements requiring multiple instruments, log data for an extended period of time, time-correlate data from multiple instruments, and easily capture and analyze your results, all from your PC. Only Tektronix offers a connected test bench of intelligent instruments to simplify and speed debug of your complex design.

Performance you can count on

In addition to industry-leading service and support, every TDS2024C oscilloscope comes backed with a Lifetime Warranty as standard.
