Tektronix Claims First 10GHz Oscilloscope With 4, 6, or 8 Channels

Sept. 18, 2020
The 6 Series delivers increased bandwidth, lower noise, and more channels than similar products in its class.

Tektronix announced the availability of their 6 Series B Mixed Signal Oscilloscope (MSO), which extends the performance threshold of the Tektronix Mainstream Oscilloscopes Portfolio to 10 GHz and 50 GS/sec. Developed to meet the demand for high-speed data movement and processing in embedded designs, the enhanced 6 Series B MSO offers leading signal fidelity with12-bit ADCs and extremely low noise, 10 GHz bandwidth and up to 8 FlexChannel inputs, enabling users to confidently analyze and debug today’s embedded systems.

In addition, Tektronix also introduced theTDP7710 TriMode Probe, which extends the line of TriMode probes to match the advancements of the  6 Series B MSO. The 6 Series B MSO targets higher-speed embedded designs, demanding mixed-signal design troubleshooting, and accelerating serial bus speeds. The 6 Series B MSO is also highly effective for diverse applications in semiconductors, power integrity, automotive, defense, aerospace, research, and others.

With up to 10 GHz of fully-upgradable bandwidth, and up to 50 GS/s sample rate, users have better visibility of signals in high-performance designs. This instrument delivers industry-leading signal fidelity, contributing less than 51.1 µV of noise at 1 mV/div and 1 GHz, and less than 1.39mV of noise at 50 mV/div and 10 GHz. The 6 Series B MSO is presented as the industry’s first oscilloscope with a bandwidth of more than 2 GHz to offer 4, 6 or 8 channels. Each FlexChannel input can be converted into 8 digital channels using a TLP058 Logic Probe for added visibility.

Built-in digital down converters (DDCs) behind every channel enable multi-channel spectrum analysis, and spectrum measurements are synchronized with time-domain waveforms to enable correlation between RF and time events.

The 6 Series B MSO’s responsive 15.6 inch HD capacitive pinch-zoom-swipe touch display offers an intuitive drag-and-drop, object-oriented user interface. This series expansion is capable of switching between Windows 10 and closed operating systems, without loss of performance or ease-of-use. The 6 Series B MSO contains a removable SSD, which uses optional security licenses to enable use of the oscilloscope in secure environments by minimizing cybersecurity threats. The TekVPI™ probe interface communicates seamlessly with a wide range of probes, to simplify setup and reduce errors.

The 6 Series B MSO is now available, priced from $26,500.00 US MSRP. Each unit receives Tektronix’s one-year warranty on the instrument and included probes (one TPP1000 1 GHz voltage probe per channel).
