Tektronix introduced a new mixed signal oscilloscope platform, the MSO/DPO5000 Series for complex component and system-level debug and validation tasks. The series incorporates many of the most popular features from the company’s highest performance oscilloscopes and makes them available at a starting price of just $11,400Features 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 features 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 12.5M up to 250M for in-depth analysis and debug. Each model has 4 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 should customers need that capability in the future.
