The Tektronix 2440 is a two-channel 300 MHz digital sampling oscilloscope from the late 1980s. The maximum sample rate is 500 megasamples per second, per channel.

  • Features:
  • 500 MS/s Digitizing
  • 300MHz Bandwidth
  • 2 ns Glitch Capture
  • Autoprobe Function With P6137 Probe
  • 300MHz X-Y Bandwidth At Probe Tip
  • Automatic Measurements
  • Extensive Triggering Capabilities
  • Printer/Plotter Output
  • On-screen HELP Text Describing Every Front-Panel Control

Operation of the 2440 (and 2432 and 2430): A/D-converter and CCD hybrids may suffer irreparable damage within a few minutes if operated out of the metal enclosure without extra cooling.
