Tektronix (www.tek.com) has released its MSO/DPO4000B Mixed Signal Oscilloscope Series, which offers up to 5 GS/s sample rate and 1 GHz bandwidth, delivering the performance needed to view fast-changing signal details. Analyzing digital and analog signals in one instrument is now possible with the Series’ 20 channels. MSO/DPO4000B Series delivers a feature-rich tool needed to speed and simplify debug of complex design with its combination of parallel bus and automated serial analysis, automated power measurements and innovative Wave Inspector controls.
Design engineers can debug a design problem if they know that it exists. They spend much time searching for problems in their design, a frustrating task if they are not equipped with the proper debug tools.
The MSO/DPO4000B Series provides a set of robust features to expedite every stage of debugging a design – from fast discovery and capture of an anomaly, to quick search of waveform data for the event and analysis of the behavior and characteristics of the device.
The MSO/DPO4000B Series also offers the industry’s most comprehensive visualization of signals, providing speedy insight into the real operation of the device. A speedy waveform capture rate – more than 50,000 waveforms per second – enables users to view glitches and infrequent transients within seconds to reveal the exact quality of device faults. The history of a signal’s activity can be viewed through a digital phosphor display with intensity grading, which provides a visual display of the anomalies frequency.
