Tektronix new products

You said more choice.

So, we introduced TWO next generation scopes, built for every engineer, for everyday use.

You said you want more capability.

So, we built our 3 Series MDO to offer class-leading functionality and built-in spectrum analyzer.

3 Series MDO: New levels of versatility [video]

The 3 Series MDO is intended to be the compact, versatile test instrument that sits on the desk of every engineer. It features a sleek industrial design and the largest display in its class at 11.6-in. with full high-definition resolution. It uses the same intuitive user interface as the rest of the portfolio with a similar set of knobs and buttons but takes up less than 6 inches of depth on a bench.

The 3 Series MDO is more than an oscilloscope and can cover a wide range of debugging and validation tasks. It offers a built-in spectrum analyzer up to 3 GHz, with a separate RF input and specifications comparable to a standalone analyzer. This enables engineers to quickly debug wireless components in their designs or quickly track down sources of unwanted EMI emissions without having to use another instrument. Sixteen digital input channels are available for mixed signal analysis. Comprehensive serial protocol debugging and triggering options, optional power measurement and an optional AFG set the standard for versatility. A DVM/frequency counter is included for free with product registration.

The new 3 Series MDO is available in bandwidths starting at 100 MHz and extending to 1 GHz. Models are available with 2.5 GS/s or 5 GS/s sample rates on all analog and digital channels. Standard record length is 10 Mpoints. For investment protection, bandwidths and options are fully field upgradeable.

You said more channels.

So, our new 4 Series MSO boasts six channels and our award-winning UI.

4 Series MSO: Large display, up to 6 Flex Channel® inputs [video]

Large oscilloscope displays enhance user experience and speed up debugging and analysis tasks. The new 4 Series MSO features a 13.3-in. display with 1920 x 1080 HD resolution, the largest and highest resolution in its class. It offers bandwidths up to 1.5 GHz and uses 12-bit ADCs for the highest vertical resolution in its class as well. It is the first scope in this class to offer six input channels and with innovative FlexChannel™ technology, any input channel can be converted from an analog to eight digital channels simply by connecting a logic probe.

To meet a diverse range of application requirements, the 4 Series MSO is available with bandwidths starting at 200 MHz and is well supported with options including serial decode and analysis, an arbitrary/function generator and a DVM/frequency counter. The new Spectrum View feature offers time correlated frequency domain analysis with independent spectrum controls. A power analysis package is available to automate AC line, switching device, ripple and sequencing measurements.

Bandwidth and options are all field upgradeable. All models deliver a 6.25 GS/s sample rate on all analog and digital channels. Standard record length is 31.25 Mpoints with option for 62.5 Mpoints.

More than just a new display and user interface. A new standard.

5 Series MSO: Never let a lack of channels slow down your verification and debug process again!
The 5 Series MSO offers better visibility into complex systems by offering four, six and eight channel models with a large 15.6" high definition (1,920 x 1,080) display. Many applications, such as embedded systems, threephase power electronics, automotive electronics, power supply design, and DC-to-DC power converters, require the observation of more than four
analog signals to verify and characterize device performance, and to debug challenging system issues.
Most engineers can recall situations in which they were debugging a particularly difficult problem and wanted greater system visibility and context, but the scope they were using was limited to two or four analog channels. Using a second scope involves significant effort to align trigger points, difficulty in determining timing relationships across the two displays,
and documentation challenges.
And while you might assume that a six and eight channel scope would cost 50% or 100% more than a four-channel scope, you'll be pleasantly surprised to find that six channel models are only ~25% more than four channel models and eight channel models are only ~67% more than four channel models. The additional analog channels can pay for themselves quickly by enabling you to keep current and future projects on schedule.

Lowest noise at high sensitivity.

More speed. Lowest noise. Exceptional measurement confidence.

6 Series MSO: Add functionality or performance as your needs change

With the lowest input noise and up to 8 GHz analog bandwidth, the 6 Series MSO provides the best signal fidelity for analyzing and debugging today's embedded systems with GHz clock and bus speeds. The remarkably innovative pinch-swipe-zoom touchscreen user interface coupled with the industry's largest high definition display and 4 FlexChannel® inputs that let you measure one analog or eight digital signals per channel, the 6 Series MSO is ready for today's toughest challenges and tomorrow's too.


FlexChannel® technology enables maximum flexibility and broader system visibility
The 6 Series MSO redefines what a Mixed Signal Oscilloscope (MSO) should be. FlexChannel technology enables each of the inputs on the instrument to be used as a single analog channel or eight digital logic inputs (with TLP058 logic probe) or a spectral view of the analog input or simultaneous analog and spectral views with independent acquisition controls for each domain. Imagine the flexibility and configurability this provides.
You can change the configuration at any time by simply adding or removing TLP058 logic probes, so you always have the right number of digital channels.
