Tektronix
Tektronix Visual Trigger
Finding the right cycle of a complex bus can require hours of collecting and sorting through thousands of acquisitions for the event of interest. Defining a trigger that isolates the desired event and shows data only when the event occurs speeds up this process. Tektronix meets this need with the industry's most flexible trigger system; Visual Trigger. VET allows engineers to create highly customizable shapes using their mouse or touchscreen that closely match the desired waveform of interest. This highly intuitive capability will change the way engineers interact with the trigger system on an oscilloscope. 

VET provides an intuitive method of triggering based on shapes in the oscilloscope's graticule. It enables the user to define shapes on the oscilloscope's display that qualify trigger events for the incoming signals. Areas can be created using a variety of standard shapes, including triangles, rectangles, hexagons, trapezoids, or user-defined shapes to fit the area to the particular trigger behavior desired. Once shapes are created on the oscilloscope's display, they can be positioned and/or resized dynamically while the oscilloscope is in Run mode to create ideal trigger conditions. Visual Trigger can be combined with the Tektronix Pinpoint Trigger system and act as a Boolean logic qualifier for 'A' and 'B' events.
