File extension .WFM
The WFM (Tektronix Waveform Data File) file extension is used to store waveform data as gathered and acquired by Tektronix, a manufacturer of oscilloscopes. WFM files are binary files created and saved when analyzing waveforms, such as digital signals, for work in Tektronix Oscilloscopes. The waveform data stored in this format is highly detailed and specific to the type of signal being collected.
WFM files contain digital waveforms that show changes in signal voltage levels versus time or other sample parameter, being recorded with an Oscilloscope and read using various types of software. These files make it possible to store and review the data gathered by the instrumentation, as well as the processing parameters used in the analysis. Thus, it makes easier for engineers to store multi-channel data analysis for further use or evaluation.

Programs for WINDOWS system
After installing the required software, the operating system will usually automatically associate an unknown file type (in this case .WFM) with the new application. If this does not happen, we can help the system a bit by selecting the software for it, which it should always use to open files with the .WFM extension.
When choosing the software we can select the system to use this software every time.
Using it for the first time it is good to check whether the .WFM file opened in the application can be read by us and opens in a way that allows us to use it. If everything is in order, select this option the next time you open a file with the .WFM extension. However, if the file has not opened correctly, we have to look for a different software, with which we can open files with the .WFM extension. Select a different software from our list and install it on your computer. After the software is installed, repeat inspection openings of a .WFM file. Sometimes you have to repeat the operation several times.
If none of the programs listed by us to work with the .WFM file has not meet your expectations, you can try searching other websites. But remember to avoid downloading programs "that can open any file". These applications not only have very limited functionality, but may also expose you to expense tens of dollars when purchasing a license.
In the vast majority of cases you will find the program dedicated to support the .WFM file, or any other file format. In addition, there is a chance that it will be a free program, and its functionality (concerning the .WFM file) will be extended to the maximum.
It is also good to check
- if the .WFM file has no errors
- or if it has been copied (or downloaded by the browser) thoroughly
