Having the right tools for the job is crucial for any development project. There is a standard array of tools that folks working on electronics have in their arsenal. A soldering iron, a board holder, a digital multimeter, and a slew of similar tools. One of those tools that many are missing is a quality oscilloscope. When I was at school, and even today at work, the scopes I have used the most are made by Tektronix. A scope at the quality of Tektronix can get very expensive but the company has heard the needs of the DIY and Maker community and have a new line of scopes designed for the home lab and GeekDad is excited to partner with Tektronix to give one away!
The TBS1000B series from Tektronix is a budget-conscious scope for the home lab. All of the scopes in the series feature two analog channels and a price point that starts at $550. Today we are announcing that we will give away a TBS1202B this month! The TBS1202B normally retails for $1790 and is the highest model in the TBS1000B family. It features:
- 200 MHz Bandwidth
- 2 GS/s Sample Rate
- 2.5k Sample Points
- 5-year Warranty
It is a great scope and I will feature it in some articles throughout the month of August to highlight the features of the scope and the troubleshooting options the scope provides. To enter for the giveaway, please fill out this form:
We will need your name, an email address, mailing address and phone number so we can send you your scope if you are the winner. Additionally, we would love to hear what projects you’re working on and/or how you would use the scope. The drawing will be completely random and this extra information will not be used in any way to determine the winner.
