Oscilloscope Models Address Trend Toward Inexpensive RF

tek_1004-ATektronix has expanded its MDO4000 Series of Mixed Domain Oscilloscopes to include two new entry level models, the MDO4014-3 and MDO4034-3. These new models provide a low entry point solution that allows engineers to capture time-correlated analog, digital and RF signals for a complete system view, saving debug time. The MDO4014-3 and MDO4034-3 offer four analog channels, 16 digital channels and one RF channel. They also offer lower analog bandwidth of 100 MHz or 350 MHz respectively. RF frequency range for both models extends from 50 kHz to 3 GHz. The mixed signal oscilloscopes combined with an integrated spectrum analyzer, provide time correlated analog, digital, and RF signal acquisition in a single instrument. The company has also added the TPA-N-PRE pre-amplifier for use on all MDO4000 Series oscilloscopes. This new pre-amplifier lowers the noise floor of the RF channel, enabling engineers to see low level signals without reducing dynamic range. Available now, pricing for the MDO4014-3 and MDO4034-3 models start at $12,200.
