- The mixed signal oscilloscope by Tektronix delivers good signal fidelity and usage up to 10 GHz bandwidth
- Allows development of cutting-edge products for embedded systems across industrial, medical, consumer and computer markets
Tektronix has released the new 6 Series B Mixed Signal Oscilloscope (MSO) which extends the performance capability of the Tektronix Mainstream Oscilloscopes Portfolio to 10 GHz and 50 GS/sec.
Developed to meet the demand for high-speed data movement and processing in embedded designs, the enhanced 6 Series B MSO offers leading signal fidelity with 12-bit ADCs and extremely low noise, 10 GHz bandwidth and up to 8 FlexChannel inputs, enabling users to easily analyse and debug present embedded systems.
It allows manufacturers to bring cutting-edge and higher performance products to industrial, medical, consumer and computer markets. The instrument is suited for high-speed embedded designs, demanding mixed-signal design troubleshooting and accelerating serial bus speeds with applications in semiconductors, power integrity, automotive, defence, aerospace, research and beyond.
The 6 Series B MSO offers a combination of bandwidth, sample rate, vertical resolution, low noise and high ENOB, providing exceptional measurements. With up to 10 GHz of fully-upgradable bandwidth and up to 50 GS/s sample rate, users get better visibility of signals in high-performance designs.
This instrument delivers a signal fidelity that contributes less than 51.1 µV of noise at 1 mV/div and 1 GHz, and less than 1.39mV of noise at 50 mV/div and 10 GHz. It has a bandwidth of more than 2 GHz to offer 4, 6 or 8 channels. Each FlexChannel™ input can be converted into 8 digital channels using a TLP058 Logic Probe for added visibility.
Wide analysis options
The 6 Series B MSO offers a range of options to:
- streamline protocol decoding
- comply testing for serial standards
- jitter & power analysis.
Built-in digital down converters (DDCs) behind every channel enable multi-channel spectrum analysis, while spectrum measurements are synchronized with time-domain waveforms to enable correlation between RF and time events.
Interactive user experience
The 6 Series B MSO has an intuitive 15.6 inch HD capacitive pinch-zoom-swipe touch display for providing a drag and drop, object-oriented user interface. The 6 Series B MSO also contains a removable SSD, which enables the use of the oscilloscope in secure environments by minimising cybersecurity threats.
“Embedded designs are growing more sophisticated by incorporating additional sensors that generate increasing amounts of data. This instrument addresses the new requirements of testing these systems to advance video, motion and 3D sensing technologies,” said Chris Witt, vice president and general manager at Tektronix.
Besides the 6 Series B MSO, Tektronix has also introduced the new TDP7710 TriMode™ Probe, which allows them to match the advancements of the new oscilloscope. It has 10 GHz bandwidth and the ability to switch from making differential to common mode to single-ended measurements, without having to reconnect the probe
The new 6 Series B MSO is now available worldwide.
