Intended for embedded designers looking for improved levels of accuracy, versatility and ease-of-use, the series offers bandwidths from 200 MHz to 1.5 GHz, real-time sampling at 6.25 GS/s and up to 16-bit vertical resolution. It also comes with an upgraded processor system and consequently the user interface is twice as responsive and boasts significantly accelerated advanced analysis.
“The 4 Series B MSO was engineered to enable designers to analyse their systems faster to combat time-to-market pressure,” said Daryl Ellis, Tektronix Mainstream Portfolio General Manager. “The user interface, designed for touch, is intuitive, informative, and now more responsive. With the 4 Series B MSO, our customers will be able to tackle 99% of their mixed-signal design challenges and actually enjoy doing it.”
The 4 Series B MSO is available with up to six input channels, making it well suited for three-phase power analysis, and exclusive Spectrum View provides multi-channel spectrum analysis in sync with time domain waveforms.
Along with accelerating front-panel operation, the upgraded processor system also speeds up remote operation. The 4 Series B MSO can be remotely accessed and controlled using a simple web browser, dedicated TekScope PC software, or custom program via a full programming interface.
The 4 Series B greatly enhances time to answer on over 25 serial decode packages for inter-chip, automotive, power, aerospace buses, and more. Additionally, it speeds up algorithms and plotting used in existing analysis packages for power supply measurements, motor drive analysis, and double pulse testing.
“This instrument provides accuracy and analysis capabilities that make it ideal for challenges faced every day by design engineers, such as signal chain debugging, power analysis, protocol analysis, and noise analysis, to name a few,” shared Jeffrey Miller, 4 Series Product Planner.
The 4 Series B MSO has a 13.3-inch, (1920x1080) HD display using industry-leading optical bonding for a greater screen contrast and viewing angle. Along with its 12-bit analogue-to-digital converters and high sampling rate, the 4 Series B shows in-depth signal detail.
The Tektronix 4 Series B MSO is now available globally.
