1 min read

Farnell is now shipping the Tektronix 2 Series Mixed Signal Oscilloscope (2 Series MSO).

This next-generation instrument is said to be offer a major advancement in test and measurement performance, versatility and portability, enabling engineers to detect and resolve problems either in the lab or in the field.

The Tektronix 2 Series MSO is suitable for embedded design, industrial, automotive and power electronics applications. Designed for ease of use, the 2 Series MSO and features the same interface included in higher performance Tektronix oscilloscopes, such as the 4, 5 and 6 Series. New and experienced users will be able to access all the measurements and settings needed to carry out faster intuitive debugging and critical signal validation.

With many engineers and technicians working in a variety of locations, and now hybrid working a common practice, the 2 Series MSO contains natively integrated software tools to allow engineers to collaborate, troubleshoot and debug across time zones. It also includes TekDrive, a test and measurement workspace in the cloud where engineers can upload, store, organise and share data from a connected device.

The device’s lightweight design comes with a high resolution 10.1-inch touchscreen display. The capabilities of the optional 50 MHz Arbitrary Function Generator and built-in pattern generator, voltmeter and frequency counter provide greater versatility in a single unit while reducing the need for users to purchase or carry multiple instruments.

Key features of the 2 Series MSO include:

  • Bandwidths from 70 MHz-500 MHz
  • Two or four analogue channel inputs
  • 16 digital channels (available with future software release)
  • 5 GS/s sample rate
  • Optional 50 MHz Arbitrary Function Generator
  • Built-in pattern generator, voltmeter, and frequency counter
  • Optional battery provides up to eight hours of power

Commenting James McGregor, Global Head of Test, Tools & Production Supplies at Farnell said, “We are pleased to help bring-to-market the next generation in oscilloscopes from Tektronix. The 2 Series MSO will be welcomed by designers, service technicians and students who will all appreciate this high performance, versatile and portable oscilloscope. With the 2 Series MSO, engineers will be able to achieve new workflows previously unimagined on an oscilloscope.”
