Test & Measurement

6-in-1 oscilloscope

23 March 2016 Test & Measurement

Tektronix has introduced the new MDO4000C oscilloscope that includes up to six built-in instruments, (spectrum analyser, arbitrary/function generator, logic analyser, protocol analyser and digital voltmeter/frequency counter).

When configured with an integrated spectrum analyser, the instrument provides simultaneous and synchronised acquisition of analog, digital and RF signal analysis – ideal for wireless communications in IoT and EMI troubleshooting. Completely customisable and fully upgradable, it can be used in the following applications:

Embedded design: discovers and solves issues by performing system level debug on mixed-signal embedded systems including today’s most common serial bus and wireless technologies.

Power design: makes reliable and repeatable voltage, current and power measurements using automated power quality, switching loss, harmonics, ripple, modulation and safe operating area measurements with a wide selection of power probes.

EMI troubleshooting: tracks the source of electromagnetic interference in an embedded system by determining which time domain signals may be causing unwanted EMI; observations in real time of the effects time domain signals have on system EMI emissions.

Wireless troubleshooting: whether using Bluetooth, 802.11 Wi-Fi, ZigBee or some other wireless technology, the MDO4000C enables viewing an entire system – analog, digital and RF – time-synchronised to understand its true behaviour; captures an ultra-wide band in a single capture to view interactions among multiple wireless technologies, or an entire broadband frequency range can be viewed from a modern standard like 802.11/ad.

Manufacturing test and troubleshooting: size and space constraints can play havoc on a manufacturing floor. The MDO4000C minimises rack or bench space by integrating multiple instruments into one small package. Integration reduces cost associated with using multiple different ­instrument types in manufacturing test or troubleshooting stations.

A new ‘Total Protection Plan’ is available to protect users’ investment, even from accidental damage.
