MSOs/DPOs Deliver Top Performance At Entry-Level Prices

Providing bandwidths up to 200 MHz and the tools necessary to ease mixed-signal debug chores, the MSO2000 mixed-signal and DPO2000 digital-phosphor oscilloscopes include Wave Inspector search and navigation tools, automatic decoding of serial data busses, and FilterVu variable low-pass filters in portable and reportedly affordable packages. Additionally, the MSO2000 provides the ability to time-correlate analog and digital signals with up to four analog and 16 digital channels for troubleshooting the mixed-signal portions of embedded systems. Both series oscilloscopes consist of three models each, ranging from 100 MHz to 200 MHz with two or four analog channels. All feature the company’s familiar front-panel layout, serial triggering, protocol decode, USB connectivity, and a seven-inch TFT display. MSO2000 models also include 16 digital channels, providing up to 20 time-correlated channels to debug both analog and digital data. All models contain 1M points of record length on each channel and a 1 Gsample/s sampling rate on all channels, ensuring at least 5X over-sampling. Also, all models provide a 5,000-waveforms per second capture rate, a PictBridge-compatible port on the rear, and come with a limited version of NI’s LabVIEW SignalExpress. List prices range from $2,580 for a two-channel, 100-MHz DPO2012 to $5,150 for a four-channel 200-MHz MSO2024 with a P6316 digital probe. TEKTRONIX INC., Beaverton, OR. (800) 426-2200.
