Tektronix HFS 9000 Stimulus System

  • GPIB (IEEE 488) Programmable
  • Up to 630 MHz Repetition Rate
  • Fully Digital Implementation
  • Multi-Channel Architecture
  • 1 ps Timing Resolution
  • Channel Deskew


The Tektronix HFS 9000 Stimulus System combines the capabilities of a complete data generator, pulse generator, and switch matrix in a single instrument. Together with a high-speed digitizing oscilloscope, the HFS 9000 provides a complete device characterization and test solution with unsurpassed accuracy and repeatability. Some of the outstanding characteristics of the HFS 9000 are as follows:

• Multi-channel stimulus — The HFS 9000 can be configured with up to 36 channels of output in one mainframe, and up to 640 channels across multiple phase-locked systems.

• Independent edge placement — This feature can be applied to all channels and is especially useful in characterizing synchronous components.

• Up to 1 ps timing resolution — The timing resolution is an order of magnitude greater than typical ECL gate delays. Combined with the multi-channel capability, this allows for setup and hold time margin testing by providing clock, data, set, and reset signals to the device under test.

• Advanced trigger features — The triggering is designed specifically to help in device characterization. Phase lock lets you synchronize the HFS 9000 to other signal sources. Trigger out deskew eliminates the timing delays introduced by cabling.

• Mixed logic family testing — The HFS 9000 can be configured to combine different kinds of pulse output in the same mainframe for characterizing mixed-logic components.

• Exceptionally flexible formatting — A high-speed card can provide data at a rate of up to 630 MB/sec, with a transition time of less than 250 ps. A variable rate card has a variable transition time between 800 ps to 6 ns.

• Fully programmable digital architecture — The HFS 9000 is a digital instrument throughout. This means that the HFS 9000 can be fully programmed through either the GPIB or RS-232-C interface. Programmed control is essential for automated, repeatable tests. In addition, the program capability of the HFS 9000 means that it will fit easily into your automated test system. A complete automated test facility can be configured from an HFS 9000, a controller such as a PC, and a high-speed acquisition system such as the Tektronix 11801B Digital Sampling Oscilloscope.

• Graphic display — Sample waveforms show how the controls are set, and indicate visually the parameter that a particular control governs.

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!
