Consider a lab that contains an NTP (network time protocol) time server that synchronizes events between multiple workstations connected to the same network. I have a Tektronix DPO4034 oscilloscope that features an ethernet port. Would it be possible to synchronize the oscilloscope to the NTP time server such that an event could be captured on the oscilloscope and its time recorded with respect to the NTP reference time? Is this a feature that's common or available on modern oscilloscopes?
I searched the DPO4034 manual for all instances of 'time' or 'timestamp'. It looks like you can buy modules that allow you to capture I2C, SPI, CAN, or serial bus events that contain timestamp information, but from the following image it looks like it only provides relative time (presumably with respect to some arbitrary reference time?):
Plus, I'd like to capture time events for arbitrary signals, not necessarily I2C, SPI, CAN, or serial signals. Does anybody have any advice?
