Installation Notes
------------------
- This firmware version is not intended for products running Windows
XP, i.e. DPO7000, DPO/DSA70000, and DPO/DSA70000B products.
- Version 10.5.0 can only be installed on DPO77002SX scopes.
- Version 10.5.1 is intended for all other scope models shown in the
Compatible Products list above.
- Version 10.5.1 cannot be installed on DPO77002SX scopes.
- An all in one “deployment package” is available for download,
which contains this new firmware and updated optional
applications. This “deployment package” significantly
simplifies the installation of new software. With this
package, you can perform one download and ensure that you
have all the latest software for your scopes. The
installation of the deployment package takes about 30-45
minutes and must not be interrupted until it has completed
the installation of all software.
- Firmware for DPO77002SX scopes is export-controlled. Contact your
local Tektronix representative for assistance in obtaining the
software.
- DPO/MSO5000 series scopes must have version 6.1.3 or later
firmware installed prior to installing this version.
Users should manually install version 6.1.3 if their scope has not
been updated to this version already.

Initial Turn-on for Standalone Instruments
------------------------------------------
After receipt of a new oscilloscope or the installation of a new
release of software, to ensure peak oscilloscope performance, run Signal
Path Compensation (SPC) after the recommended warm up time has passed.
The SPC item is located in the Utilities menu listed as Instrument
Calibration....

All probes should also be re-calibrated - see Vertical -> Probe Cal...

When a new release of instrument software is installed, some
application software packages must also be updated and installed
separately by the user. If you install the deployment package, the
latest version of applications will be installed with the firmware.

This release supports English only in the scope's graphical user
interface (GUI).

Initial Turn-on for Multi-unit Configurations (DPO70000SX series only)
----------------------------------------------------------------------
With power off, connect the UltraSync(TM) cables as described in
the Quick Start Guide.

Power on all instruments. Order of power-up does not matter.

Once the power-up sequence completes, the Master scope in the system
will display the TekScope application window.

It is important to run Signal Path Compensation (SPC) whenever there
is a change in UltraSync(TM) cabling. This includes the initial
turn-on of a multi-scope system. SPC should be run from the TekScope
application running on the Master scope after the recommended warm
up time has passed.

The SPC item is located in the Utilities menu listed as Instrument
Calibration....

Powering Down Multi-unit Configurations (DPO70000SX series only)
----------------------------------------------------------------
Turn off the Master scope first to ensure proper shutdown of the
system. The sequence for powering down the Extension scopes does
not matter.

Main Oscilloscope Application
-----------------------------
The main oscilloscope application is critical to the operation of
the instrument as an oscilloscope or as a PC. The application is
expected to be running at all times. Even when minimized on the
Windows taskbar, oscilloscope error messages, notifiers, etc. are
always posted to the desktop. The only time you should exit the main
oscilloscope application is to install other software packages.

Activating Options
------------------
Some options such as extended memory or advanced analysis and
application software are factory installed. If you ordered these
options from the factory, they are already enabled and ready for
you to use.

If you would like to upgrade your oscilloscope to include one of
these options, contact your local Tektronix representative. Once
the purchase transaction is complete, you will be given a new
Option Installation Key that you can enter to enable the desired
options. Refer to the Option documentation for detailed
instructions.

Reverting to an Earlier Version of Firmware (non-DPO70000SX series only)
------------------------------------------------------------------------
Reverting to a version of scope firmware earlier than V10.3.3 first
requires a system restore operation, which will re-install the
firmware version originally shipped with the instrument.
Customers can then download the most-recent prior version of firmware
from the Tektronix web site at http://www.tek.com/downloads.

40Gbit Ethernet Standard Support Unavailable in Current Version of
High Speed Serial Link Training Analysis
-----------------------------------------------------------------
High Speed Serial Link Training Analysis supports the 100Gbit
Ethernet standard, but not the 40Gbit ethernet standard.

Using histogram measurements
----------------------------
Ensure that you have configured and activated histogram operation before
selecting any histogram measurement.

Setting Trigger Level to 50%
----------------------------
Occasionally, getting the proper trigger edge placement may
require more than one press of the Set to 50% button.

Using Scopes with Different Memory Options in Multi-unit Configurations
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
When a multi-unit configuration contains scopes with differing memory
options, the system is limited to the lowest memory option in the system.
If the Master oscilloscope has the lowest memory option, the pop-up
message in the GUI incorrectly states that an Extension has a lower
memory option than the Master.

Checking SPC Status in Multi-unit Configurations
------------------------------------------------
The SPC status shown in the Master oscilloscope's GUI applies only
to the Master Oscilloscope. To view the SPC status for an Extension scope,
minimize the Configuration Manager Status Window in the Extension's
display panel. The Extension's GUI and SPC status should then be visible.

Using the Frequency Counter in Multi-unit Configurations
--------------------------------------------------------
The Frequency Counter feature currently is available only for
data channels physically located on the Master scope.

Selecting 12.5X Trimode Probe Range
-----------------------------------
Use Auto Mode to access 12.5X trimode probe range.

Multi-unit Triggering on AC Line in Average or Envelope Mode
------------------------------------------------------------
An acquisition channel on the Master oscilloscope must be turned
on for the multi-unit system to trigger on the AC line when the
Acquisition Mode is either Average or Envelope. This allows
curve queries made via the Programmatic Interface (PI) to
complete successfully.

Saving and Recalling Bus Channel Threshold Values
-------------------------------------------------
Recalling a system setup file that contains non-default bus channel
threshold values may not restore the expected threshold values. It is
more likely to happen after restoring different system setup files,
mixed with defaulting the system setup. The correct values can be set
through either the GUI or the remote programmable interface (PI).

Importing S-Parameter Data Files when Connecting Probes
-------------------------------------------------------
After connecting a probe, wait for the Long Operation Completion
message to appear before connecting the next probe. This will ensure
that the S-parameter data files for each connected probe have been
imported successfully.

Changing GPIB Settings Not Available for DPO70000SX-series Instruments
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Although the GPIB Utility menu is accessible, it does not change any
settings on DPO70000SX-series instruments.

Accessing Instrument Calibration Control from Remote Desktop after
running SPC on a Multi-unit Configuration
---------------------------------------------------------------------
The following issue occurs only when operating the oscilloscope's GUI
via a Remote Desktop connection to a multi-unit system: After launching
Signal Processing Correction (SPC) by clicking the Run button from the
Utility->Instrument Calibration control window, the control window may
no longer be accessible.

Subsequently activating any other control window will re-enable access
to the Utility->Instrument Calibration control window.

Using PI Queries with Long Record Lengths in Multi-unit Configurations
----------------------------------------------------------------------
When using the remote programmable interface (PI) to access
acquisition records of 100 Msamples or greater, the following
approaches will provide optimum responsiveness in a multi-unit system:
- If using CURVE? in Acq Run mode, delay ~60 seconds between turning
on an extension’s channel and attempting to continuously CURVE? the
channel’s data
- If using CURVE? in Acq Single Sequence mode, no delay is necessary,
and typical OPC/BUSY/SRQ methods can be used, although an increased
timeout may be necessary, compared to a standalone configuration
- Use alternative queries to CURVE?, such as CURVESTREAM? or CURVENEXT?

Enable Extended OPC Mode when Running a Multi-unit Configuration
from the PI
----------------------------------------------------------------
Using the ":OPCEXtended ON" PI command in multi-unit configurations ensures
that all acquisition and measurement operations are complete when using
scope synchronization methods such as *OPC, *WAI, and :BUSY?

A-B Seq Trigger Reset Timer
---------------------------
The Trigger Reset Timer may default back to 1 Msec upon
selecting the Select Trigger -> A-B Seq Tab.

Envelope or Average Mode with Line Trigger
------------------------------------------
To ensure proper waveform display when using Envelope or
Average acquisition mode with Line trigger source, turn off
Enhanced Triggering in the Trigger Setup control panel.

Time Shift with Enhanced Triggering Disabled
--------------------------------------------
Changing sample rate between 100 Gsamples and 50 Gsamples causes
waveforms to shift by 20ps if Enhanced Triggering is disabled.

Frequency Counter on Multi-unit Configurations
----------------------------------------------
The frequency counter requires triggers to be generated from channels
on the Master scope of a multi-unit configuration.

LRN Command
-----------
Rather than use the LRN command to restore factory settings, recall
a default setup instead.

Windows Clipboard Limitations
-----------------------------
The size of waveforms copied to the clipboard when using the
Edit->Copy or Ctrl-C key is limited to the size of the Windows
clipboard. Therefore, waveforms with a large record length will
not fit on the clipboard. A notifier will warn you in this case.
The size of the clipboard is determined by the Windows operating
system. File Export is recommended for transferring large
waveform records.

Windows Access Control Limitations
----------------------------------
LXI operation requires specific User Account Control (UAC) settings to work
properly because it needs access control to change the network parameter
configuration. To change the user account settings select
Start -> Control Panel. Then, click on User Accounts followed by
Change User Account Settings. Change the settings to either Never Notify
or Notify me only when programs try to make changes to my computer.

PC Hardware and Software Compatibility
--------------------------------------
DPO/DSA/MSO series oscilloscopes are sophisticated, highly integrated
hardware and software systems. The oscilloscope is dependent on
the specific version of the PC motherboard and Windows operating
system installed at the factory. Any changes to any of the PC hardware
or the Windows operating system will affect the performance of the
instrument. Do not attempt to modify or update any of the PC
hardware, Windows 7 operating system components, or BIOS settings
unless instructed to do so by Tektronix.

Power Configuration & Settings
------------------------------
Tektronix recommends that you not modify the power-related settings
in either the BIOS or the Power Management areas of Windows 7. They
are set at the factory to a configuration that is optimal for the
instrument. Changing these settings can prevent the oscilloscope
from operating properly.

Verifying That Your Oscilloscope’s Disk Drive is Fully Expanded
---------------------------------------------------------------
You should always check that the disk drive is fully expanded after
performing an Operating System (OS) restore. If the disk has an issue,
a 160 GB hard drive may show no available disk space and appear to be
only 80 GB.

Perform the following steps to fix the issue with NO DATA LOSS:
1. On the desktop, right click on the computer ICON
2. Select “Manage”
3. Click on “Disk Management”
4. In the lower part of the window where you can see (C:) Healthy
(Boot, Page File, etc.), you may also see a large unallocated
partition next to it.
5. Right click in the C:\ partition and select “Extend Volume” to
restore the unallocated partition to the C:
6. Follow the Wizard prompts

Network Security
----------------
Windows 7 contains an integrated software firewall that is enabled
by default. The enabled Windows 7 firewall may provide some protection
from Network worm-type viruses.

Anti-virus Protection
--------------------
If you connect this instrument to a network, we highly recommend
that you install antivirus software. Prior to leaving Tektronix,
this instrument was verified clean of known viruses.

Adobe Reader
------------
The Adobe Reader auto-update option is set to check for updates weekly.

To disable this auto-update option, complete the following steps:
1. After Adobe Reader is installed, launch the application.
2. From the menu, Edit->Preferences for Updates...
3. Uncheck the "Automatically check for Adobe updates" option.
4. Click OK.
5. After the update finishes, install any updates or select Cancel.

Product Upgrades
----------------
From time to time Tektronix releases new versions of the product
software or optional application software. Customers can download
these from the Tektronix web site at http://www.tek.com/downloads.
