Tektronix Inc. has extended its oscilloscope offerings with MSO/DPO5000, a mixed-signal oscilloscope series of high-bandwidth and low capacitance passive voltage probes starting at Rs.509,239.48 ($11,400).

Tektronix also unveiled TPP1000 and TPP0500 high-bandwidth and low capacitance passive voltage probes. The company claims that the new instruments and probes together give embedded systems design engineers high performance and analysis tools for complex component and system-level debug and validation tasks at competitive price points.

MSO/DPO5000 series

The MSO/DPO5000 series incorporates many of the most popular features from Tektronix's oscilloscopes and makes them available at a starting price of Rs.509,239.48 ($11,400). Features include FastAcq with a >250,000wfm/s maximum waveform capture rate, FastFrame segmented memory acquisition and long record length to capture long time periods at high resolution, extensive built-in tools and a Windows-based user interface.

The series features eight models ranging from 350MHz of analogue bandwidth and 5GS/s sample rates to 2GHz and 10GS/s for higher-end applications. Record length ranges from 12.5M up to 250M for in-depth analysis and debug. Each model has four analogue channels. The MSO models also offer 16 digital channels and built-in parallel bus trigger and decode functionality. In addition, the DPO models are field upgradeable to MSO models.

The series offers tools for every stage of debug. DPX technology with FastAcq enables engineers to quickly see problems in their signal with acquisition rates up to 2GHz, then use over 350 trigger combinations to capture that event. Extensive triggers for serial and parallel bus content enable fast validation of bus operation and make it possible to track down system-level problems in embedded systems. Providing waveform navigation, the built-in Wave Inspector search capability can automatically look through an entire acquisition of up to 250Mpoints to find user-specified events and mark every occurrence. Over 50 automated measurements, plus advanced waveform math, histograms, statistics and other built-in analysis tools are available to analyse the signal and determine root cause of a problem or validate operation of the design.
