The Tektronix TDS5054 digital phosphor oscilloscope delivers up to 500 MHz Bandwidth, 5 GS/s real-time sample rate, 2 MB record length and 100,000 wfms/s maximum waveform capture rate. This performance, along with a suite of advanced triggers, intuitive user interface, and an open Windows platform, all in a compact bench-top package, provides exceptional value.

Digital phosphor oscilloscopes provide insight into signal behavior by displaying, storing and analyzing complex signals in real-time using three dimensions of signal information: amplitude, time and distribution of amplitude over time. The Tektronix TDS5054 500 MHz, 5GSa/s Oscilloscope delivers fast waveform capture rates, enabled by Tektronix proprietary DPX™ acquisition technology, saving minutes, hours or even days by quickly revealing the nature of faults so sophisticated trigger modes can be applied to isolate them.


  • Intuitive User Interface for Easy Operation
  • Small Footprint
  • 10.4 in. (264 mm) Bright Display
  • Suite of Advanced Triggers
  • Interoperability with Tektronix Logic Analyzers
