That's because NI makes all of our instruments modular.
Seriously, there are certain instruments I have to have as a "benchtop". Oscilloscope is the main one. I know NI has their digitzing cards, but they are a pain to perform debugging with. That's why I have a tektronix scope sitting in all of my test racks. Nothing like a full instrument with knobs and buttons to play with when the pressure is on.
OK they are wonderful- but seriously? NI-Scope- is not supported by TEK. yet, "Same Day Display" is a feature rserved for another company (Keylight?)
If you still are looking.
Retired 2005-repair shop.
I own a 2000A and have a small amount of "moldy" info that I can copy and send at no charge.
This is what it looks like currently:
A working nixie tube display. Nice!
I still prefer the old-school physical knobs to the menu drop-down labrynth of modern scopes.
The title of this thread caught my attention since I developed one of those about 3 years ago but of course mine looked different.
It used one of every type of modular instrument that NI sells save a DMM.
De-muxing the left and right channel of a stereo digital microphone was a bit challenging and I was hoping to learn of how others had cracked that nut.
