VectorVu-PC vector network analysis software is the analysis engine for the TTR500A Series VNAs, enabling you to: Perform live network analyses on your PC when connected to the TTR503A or TTR506A over USB2.0. Perform offline analyses of saved data and Touchstone (.sNp) files when not connected to an instrument. Perform automated testing via a. Enter the required network parameters into your instrument. See your instrument documentation for how to access and enter network parameters. Connect your instrument to a network port using a CAT5 10BaseT Ethernet cable with RJ-45 connectors. If available, use a PC network IP address testing program to locate (“ping”) yourinstrumenton.
This article explains how to connect Tektronix Oscilloscope to PC via Ethernet LAN and control it remotely. We have used TEKTRONIX MSO4104B for this tutorial. However, this method can be used in general for other oscilloscopes as well as instruments like Pico Ammeters etc.
Although, you can save the data by connecting pendrive to oscilloscope but this method of Ethernet connection helps you in remotely controlling oscilloscope and directly acquiring data to the PC through browser. After connection, one can also control and acquire data using programming.

How to connect Tektronix Oscilloscope to PC via Ethernet
Connect one end of the Ethernet cable to Tektronix Mixed Signal Oscilloscope (MSO) as shown in the following image. One can either connect another end to the PC or the network port.
IP configuration of Oscilloscope
- Press Utility button and you will find utility menu at the bottom of screen.
- Press button corresponding to Utility Page and you will find a menu bar on the left side of the screen.
- Using “Multipurpose a” knob, select I/O.
- Press button corresponding to Network Configuration which will open a Network Configuration menu on the right of the screen.
- Press button corresponding to Set IP Address Manually which will open a window to set the IP address and other information.Enter IP Address and other information here either by using oscilloscope knob or by connecting a keyboard using front USB port.
IP configuration of Computer
Set the IP address in Network Profile of computer as following. Note: make sure the IP of the PC is not same as the IP of the oscilloscope but should be similar, which can be done by changing the last digit.
IP configuration in Linux
IP Configuration in Windows 7
Testing and Controlling Oscilloscope from Browser
Enter IP address of oscilloscope (188.8.131.52) in browser (Firefox in Linux and Internet Explorer in Windows, Note: google chrome may show some problem).
You can control the instrument by going to Instrument Control option. Press the control in menu bar at the top and you will see the live screen and all control buttons of oscilloscope.
One can control the Oscilloscope remotely from here just like using physical knobs and buttons. At first, this may seem a bit difficult to handle but you will get acquainted soon.
If you want to save single screen data, click on Data in the menu bar at the top. Here, you can choose channel source and data format.
In case, you want to save data using Python program to your pc, you can visit our tutorial about how to save Data from Oscilloscope using Python in Linux.

BEAVERTON, Ore., Feb. 3, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Tektronix, Inc. today announced the launch of its TekExpress™ Multi-Gigabit Automotive Ethernet Compliance Test Solution as the first-in-market solution to meet the requirements of complex automotive designs. As newer automotive technologies such as autonomous driving, 5G and connected car solutions develop, the paths carrying the vast amount of data necessary to support those technologies must be tested to ensure reliable transfers between a vehicle's electronic sub-systems. As an automated compliance test application, the Tektronix TekExpress Multi-Gigabit Automotive Ethernet Compliance Test Solution allows for quick, accurate and reliable validation and debugging for multi-gigabit Ethernet chipsets and electronic control units (ECUs) to meet Physical Media Attachment (PMA) transmitter measurement requirements for up to 10 Gb/s. The fully automated compliance test solution is fitting with the current version of the IEEE 802.3ch MultiGBASE-T1 specification.
'The Tektronix TekExpress Multi-Gigabit Automotive Ethernet Compliance Test Solution fulfills the need for reliable, easy-to-use and rapid multi-gigabit automotive Ethernet compliance and test support,' shares Raajit Lall, General Manager of Market Solutions. 'Multi-gigabit Ethernet uses PAM4 modulation to achieve high data rates and reliability, pushing the boundaries of signal integrity and requiring higher performance measurements for compliance, debugging and validation. Debug tools like DPOJET and PAM4 Analysis also allow for quick identification of the root cause of a failure, saving time and effort.' Lall adds, 'Tektronix continues to actively participate in the Open Alliance, using our engineering expertise to drive the development of in-vehicle network test specifications and methodologies to ensure reliable, cost-effective testing.'
This new Tektronix offering is part of its family of industry-leading automated compliance solutions for automotive Ethernet, working seamlessly with Tektronix oscilloscopes. And, because this new application uses the TekExpress automation framework, engineers do not have to learn a new software interface. This new application enhances Tektronix's existing in-vehicle network solution offering of 10BASE-T1S, 100-BASE-T1 and 1000BASE-T1 compliance testing applications for automotive Ethernet standards.
The Tektronix IEEE 802.3ch Multi-Gigabit Ethernet automated compliance application is now available globally for 10G/5G/2.5GBASE-T1 automotive Ethernet Physical Media Attachment (PMA) transmitter compliance testing on DPO70000 SX/DX Series oscilloscopes. Product pricing begins at $14,500 USD. For more information, visit tek.com/automotive/automotive-ethernet.
Tektronix, Inc., headquartered in Beaverton, Oregon, delivers innovative, precise and easy-to-operate test, measurement and monitoring solutions that solve problems, unlock insights and drive discovery globally.
