Tektronix has expanded its oscilloscope range with a mixed signal oscilloscope platform, the MSO/DPO5000 series.

The company also unveiled TPP1000 and TPP0500 high-bandwidth and low-capacitance passive voltage probes.

The series features include FastAcq with a >250,000 wfm/s maximum waveform capture rate to discover elusive problems, FastFrame segmented memory acquisition and long record length to capture long time periods at high resolution, extensive built-in tools for in-depth analysis of complex designs, and a Windows-based user interface for easy networking and intuitive operation.

The series has eight models ranging from 350 MHz of analog bandwidth and 5 GS/s sample rates to 2 GHz and 10 GS/s for higher-end applications. Record length ranges from 12.5 to 250 M for in-depth analysis and debug. Each model has four analog channels.

The MSO models also offer 16 digital channels and built-in parallel bus trigger and decode functionality. In addition, the DPO models are field upgradeable to MSO models.

The series offers tools for every stage of debug. DPX technology with FastAcq enables engineers to quickly see problems in their signal with one of the industry’s fastest acquisition rates up to 2 GHz, then use over 350 trigger combinations to capture that event the first time.

The built-in Wave Inspector search capability can automatically look through an entire acquisition of up to 250 Mpoints to find user-specified events and mark every occurrence for fast navigation to problem areas.

All 16 digital channels are fully integrated into the oscilloscope. MagniVu ultra-high-resolution acquisition mode acquires up to 10,000 points at up to 16.5 GS/s (60.6 ps resolution).

High-impedance (10 MΩ input resistance) passive voltage probes limit the effect on circuits with capacitive loading of 3.9 pF at the probe tip. They also deliver 1 GHz of bandwidth.

The company has also announced enhancements to the MSO/DPO4000 series with the ‘B’ series providing even more performance. The MSO/DPO4000B series now offers twice the standard record length to capture more time with more resolution and improved digital acquisition specifications. The series includes six models ranging from 350 MHz and 2.5 GS/s to 1 GHz and 5 GS/s, along with standard 20 M record lengths.

The MSO/DPO4000B series now adds support for ethernet (10BASE-T and 100BASE-TX) and MIL-STD-1553 buses along with the added analysis capability of limit and mask testing. The MSO/DPO4000B series is said to be the first oscilloscope-based trigger, decode and search solution for ethernet buses.
