Tektronix VX4240 12-Bit, 10 MS/s, Waveform Digitizer/Analyzer

  • 12-Bit, 10 MS/s Digitizer
  • Over 40 On-Board Signal Analysis Routines
  • Extensive Triggering Capabilities
  • User-Defined Input Voltage Range
  • Programmable Time Delay and Sample Clock


The VX4240 Waveform Digitizer/Analyzer Module is a printed circuit board assembly for use in a C or D size mainframe conforming to the VXIbus Specification. It combines a 12-bit, 10 MHz A/D converter with a RISC processor to provide a sophisticated measurement and analysis tool. Capable in capturing waveforms in the dc to 5 MHz frequency range, the VX4240 features extensive, on-card signal analysis and conditioning routines. All key parameters are programmable, and calibration is greatly simplified by semi-automatic calibration alignment routines.

In addition to collecting and transferring waveforms, the VX4240 can analyze and/or preprocess sample data before returning it to the system controller. More than 40 signal analysis routines available include such functions as fast Fourier transforms (FFT) using any of three different windows; signal to noise ratio; total harmonic distortion; maximum, minimum, average, and RMS values; rise and fall times; pulse widths; peak-to-peak voltages; overshoot and undershoot; mean and standard deviation; and period, frequency, and duty cycle.

Another unique feature of the VX4240 is its ability to directly set the desired input range. Eight of the ranges (0.5, 1, 2, 5, 10, 20, 50, and 100 Volts) are calibrated, but any range of less than 100 Volts may be set. If a range other than a calibrated range is selected, the VX4240 will pre-scale the signal usink a Tek-developed virtual ranging circuit. This circuit, in effect, adjusts the incoming signal so that 12-bit weighting is provided at any voltage within the VX4240's range, allowing it to outperform many 14-bit digitizers. The input can be programmed to be ac- or dc-coupled and single-ended or differential, with either 50-ohs or 1 MOhm input impedance.

InstraView™ Equipment Inspection

Buying used equipment doesn't always have to be a shot in the dark. We know there are plenty of differences when it comes to used equipment and quite often, choosing between different pieces is difficult, especially when the equipment is not sitting right in front of you.

Well, what if you were able to see a piece of equipment before you purchased it? Not just a picture from the manufacturer's website, but the actual piece of equipment you would receive.
With InstraView™, we move you one step closer to inspecting the equipment you're interested in without having to wait for the equipment to show up at your door.

InstraView™ works in your web browser and allows you to view the actual piece of equipment you're interested in before purchasing. You can zoom in close to see the labels with the serial number or zoom out to see the overall condition of the equipment.

It's like having the store come to you!

InstraView Request Form

To get started:

  1.   Fill in the request form below
  2.   We'll send you an email letting you know exactly when your piece of equipment will be available for viewing
