Mixed signal oscilloscope range helps complex design debug

New models in the Tektronix MSO2000 series of mixed-signal oscilloscopes are now available from TTi Instrument Distribution. Offering advanced logic debug features at an entry level price, along with bandwidths of up to 200MHz and sample rates of up to 1Gsample/s, the instruments incorporate up to 20 channels. To capture long windows of signal activity while maintaining fine timing resolution, MSO2000 devices offer a deep record length of 1million points as standard on all channels.

With Wave Inspector controls for rapid waveform navigation and automated serial and parallel bus analysis, the MSO2000 range provides a rich set of tools to speed and simplify the debugging of complex designs. The 16 digital channels are tightly integrated into the oscilloscope's user interface, simplifying operation and making it possible to solve mixed-signal issues easily. The MSO2000 series simplifies channel setup by allowing the user to group digital waveforms and enter waveform labels via a USB keyboard. Digital waveforms are simply placed next to each other to form a group, and all the channels contained in that group can then be positioned collectively. This reduces the normal setup time associated with the positioning of channels individually.
