Tektronix Inc. unveils two versions of its performance oscilloscope families, the DPO7000C Series and new 4GHz, 6GHz and 8GHz models in the MSO/DPO/DSA70000C series ranging from 500MHz–8GHz that claim faster troubleshooting while also extending MIPI support with new serial decode solutions for MIPI Alliance's CSI-2 and DSI specifications.

 DPO7000C Series

The DPO7000C Series offers engineers an efficiency tool that combines analysis functionality for many applications into a single oscilloscope. It includes time-saving serial analysis solutions that enable designers to focus on solving design problems using robust tools for every stage of debug, from discovering that a problem exists to capturing it, then searching long records for all instances and analysing to find the root cause. With tools like the One Touch Jitter Wizard, complex testing tasks are simplified and automated.

The series is now available with the latest Microsoft Windows 7 operating system for easier integration with data networks, intuitive operation and faster boot up times. These products also feature a faster compute platform that provides quicker time to answer, such as, up to 3x faster time to answer on DPOJET Jitter measurements. They also provide full LXI Class C support for easier integration into automated test stations.

The DPO7000C Series offers a comprehensive serial bus analysis with robust decode, trigger and search support for embedded system buses including I2C, SPI, RS-232/422/485/UART, USB 2.0, MIPI CSI-2 and DSI specifications.

The MSO/DPO/DSA70000C series provides a deeper level of analysis on the challenges in high-performance design and verification for RF/microwave, serial data and semiconductor characterisation. This platform supports trigger, decode and search capability for popular embedded system buses along with high speed timing analysis and compliance packages for standards including DDR3, USB 3.0, PCIe 3.0 and others.

For embedded engineers that require performance beyond the 3.5GHz available in the DPO7000C, the 4GHz, 6GHz and 8GHz models of the MSO/DPO/DSA70000C Series is recommended. The latest models incorporate a faster compute platform, deliver LXI Class C compliance and use the Windows 7 operating system.

For the MSO70000C Series, P6750 logic probes offer high density DMAX footprint signal access on up to 16 logic channels. Improved debug capability with Advanced Search & Mark, along with DPOJET Essentials are standard on all instruments.

Tektronix offers expanded support for the MIPI specifications with protocol decode and search for MIPI CSI-2 and DSI serial buses. This complements the broad range of testing capability for the emerging MIPI Alliance test requirements including MIPI D-PHY and MIPI M-PHY support on Tektronix DPO7000C & MSO/DPO/DSA70000C Series oscilloscopes. Tektronix is also announcing a TekExpress automation toolset for 100 per cent one-button compliance testing of MIPI D-PHY TX measurements. In addition, Tektronix also provides DigRFv.4 logic testing with TLA7000 Series Logic Analysers.

The DPO7000C series and 4GHz, 6GHz and 8GHz MSO/DPO/DSA70000C series oscilloscopes and MIPI CSI-2 and DSI-1 support are available now. Pricing starts at Rs.8.08 lakh ($17,700) MSRP for the DPO7000C.
