 MSO2000 oscilloscope

Tektronix is offering a lower-cost version of the MSO series of mixed-signal oscilloscopes combining two or four analog channels with 16 digital channels.

The MSO2000 series are digital phosphor oscilloscopes with bandwidths of 100MHz or 200MHz and two or four channels, and are significantly cheaper than the other MSO instruments in the Tektronix range.

Despite their low cost, instruments in the MSO2000 series incorporate 1M points of usable record length on all channels, serial trigger and decode analysis options, and a variable low-pass filter that also allows the user to see signal details to the oscilloscope's full bandwidth.

The WaveInspector navigation and search facility enables details to be located and zoomed using intuitive smart controls. The display uses a widescreen color TFT which allows more information to be seen than a standard 4:3 display.

Digitally oriented features include bus display, bus decoding and events table. Serial triggering is provided for popular serial interfaces including I?C, SPI, RS-232/422/485/UART, CAN and LIN. Triggering can be done on packet content such as start of packet, specific addresses, specific data content or other unique identifiers.

TTi, as a Platinum distributor for Tektronix, holds all of the MSO2000 models in stock along with all options and accessories.
