Coventry University Chooses Tektronix Entry Scope, Keithley Instruments And TekScope For Teaching Laboratory


The new TekScope Oscilloscope analysis software enables students to analyze waveforms just as you would on your scope, without the need for the scope.

Coventry University students will be able
to enjoy a newly-built state-of the art Electrical and Electronic Engineering laboratory
(in the Beatrice Shilling Building, named after the British female entrepreneur
engineer and pioneer) upon their return to campus, featuring 53 fully-equipped
workstations thanks to
Tektronix, a world
leader in electronic design, test and measurement equipment, in conjunction
with SJ Electronics, one of the UK's leading distributors of educational test

Coventry University has a long
tradition as an education provider. Their roots go as far back as Coventry
College of Design in 1843. It was in 1970 that Coventry College of Art
amalgamated with Lanchester College of Technology and Rugby College of
Engineering Technology. Today, the university's
Faculty of Engineering, Environment
and Computing
offers a wide range of courses, cutting-edge facilities and
industry-focused learning aimed towards maximizing student's employability and
career prospects following graduation. The new lab is designed to build on the
university's high-quality research-led teaching and learning, enhancing the
student experience.

Tektronix and
SJ Electronics have provided 53 seated workstations, across three laboratories,
which will enable first and second year students to perform an extensive range
of practical electronics and physics experiments. Each workstation includes the
following solutions:

TekScope™ PC Analysis software

TBS2074B, 70 MHz digital storage oscilloscope

AFG1022, 25 MHz
Arbitrary/Function Generator

Keithley 2110, 5.5 digit digital multimeter (DMM)

“We are very
excited at the opportunity to equip the main teaching laboratories in one of
the UK's top electronic engineering universities with Tektronix and Keithley software
and equipment”, said Maria Heriz, Vice President, EMEA Commercial Operations at

For us it is vital to provide solutions to support
engineering education in the ‘new normal world'.
For this purpose, we are
providing not only the instruments but also our new
TekScope brings the power of the oscilloscope analysis
environment to the PC. Users have the flexibility to perform analysis tasks
including serial decode, power analysis, as well as timing, eye, and jitter
analysis outside the lab. You can continue your session from your oscilloscope
at any place and share the results. Reduces efforts to see screenshots when you
need to dive deeper or while sharing. Reload the session on your
4/5/6 oscilloscope if you want to re-do the measurement
Software solution, which brings the power of the oscilloscope analysis
environment to the PC. Coventry University students will have the flexibility
to perform analysis tasks in the lab and continue their work outside of the
lab. This will prepare them for industry-based environments whilst enhancing
collaboration and sharing with other students; key areas for facilitating a
great learning experience.”

Nik Tsanov, Development Officer (Electronics) for Coventry University,
said: “The exciting range of software and equipment Tektronix, Keithley and SJ
Electronics have provided us with represents our commitment to developing truly
excellent teaching and learning spaces for our students and staff to take
advantage of.

“I have no doubt that collaborating with Tektronix to kit out our
facilities with such high-quality equipment will help us take the faculty's
offering to a whole new level.”
