The MSO2000 and DPO2000 Series of oscilloscopes each consist of three models ranging from 100 MHz to 200 MHz, with two or four analogue channels, the familiar Tektronix front-panel layout, serial triggering, protocol decode, USB plug-and-play PC connectivity, a seven inch widescreen bright TFT display, and a three-year warranty.

The MSO2000 models also include 16 digital channels, providing up to 20 time-correlated channels to debug both analogue and digital data. All models contain 1M points of record length on each channel and a 1 GS/s sampling rate on all channels, ensuring at least 5X over-sampling of the signal. Additionally, the new models provide 5,000 waveforms per second capture rate to aid discovery of transient events.

Unwanted noise can make debugging of intended signal attributes a difficult task. The new FilterVu variable low-pass filter provides a powerful tool to block unwanted noise from signals while still capturing glitches and other signal details up to the full bandwidth of the oscilloscope. The new MSO2000 and DPO2000 Series are the only oscilloscopes to simultaneously display the filtered waveform and high frequency details up to the full bandwidth of the oscilloscope.

The MSO2000 and DPO2000 Series include the Wave Inspector search engine on all analogue and digital channels, a set of easy-to-use tools that make simple and efficient work of finding events of interest in long records. With Wave Inspector navigation, the MSO2000 and DPO2000 Series aid engineers to quickly find and solve difficult problems.

All models include standard a USB host port on the front of the instrument and USB device port on the rear of the instrument. The front USB port supports a USB flash drive. The rear port is USBTMC compatible which enables communication and control via a PC. The rear port is also PictBridge certified for printing to PictBridge certified printers.

U.S. list prices range from Rs.1.29 lakh ($2,580) for a two-channel 100MHz DPO2012 to Rs.2.58 lakh ($5,150) for a four-channel 200MHz MSO2024 with an included P6316 digital probe. All new models are available for purchase and delivery.

A limited version of NI LabVIEW SignalExpress Tektronix Edition is included free of charge with the MSO2000 and DPO2000 Series; users can upgrade to the standard verson of NI LabVIEW SignalExpress Tektronix Edition for a U.S. MSRP of Rs.34,975.44 ($699) which includes more than 200 measurement acquisition, analysis, and reporting features. The Tektronix Edition software can be ordered from Tektronix as option SIGEXPTE.
