Tektronix 6 Series B Mixed Signal Oscilloscope
Tektronix has announced the 6 Series B Mixed Signal Oscilloscope (MSO), extending the performance threshold of the company’s mainstream oscilloscopes portfolio to 10 GHz and 50 GS/s. Developed to meet the demand for high-speed data movement and processing in embedded designs, the MSO offers high signal fidelity with 12-bit ADCs and up to eight FlexChannel inputs, enabling users to confidently analyse and debug embedded systems while enjoying ease of use.
The MSO allows manufacturers to bring cutting-edge and high-performance products to industrial, medical, consumer and computer markets. The instrument is poised for higher-speed embedded designs, demanding mixed-signal design troubleshooting and accelerating serial bus speeds. It is also effective for diverse applications in semiconductors, power integrity, automotive, defence, aerospace, research and more.
With up to 10 GHz of fully upgradable bandwidth and up to 50 GS/s sample rate, users have visibility of signals in high-performance designs. The instrument delivers good signal fidelity, contributing less than 51.1 µV of noise at 1 mV/div and 1 GHz and less than 1.39 mV of noise at 50 mV/div and 10 GHz. It is said to be the first oscilloscope with bandwidth of more than 2 GHz to offer four, six or eight channels. Each FlexChannel input can be converted into eight digital channels using a TLP058 Logic Probe for added visibility.
The MSO offers a range of options to streamline protocol decoding, compliance testing for serial standards, jitter analysis and power analysis. Built-in digital down converters (DDCs) behind every channel enable multichannel spectrum analysis, and spectrum measurements are synchronised with time domain waveforms to enable correlation between RF and time events.
The MSO’s responsive 15.6″ HD capacitive pinch-zoom-swipe touch display provides an intuitive drag-and-drop, object-oriented user interface. It is capable of switching between Windows 10 and closed operating systems, without loss of performance. A removable SSD, along with optional security licences, enables use of the oscilloscope in secure environments by minimising cybersecurity threats. The TekVPI probe interface, known for versatility and ease of use, communicates seamlessly with a wide range of probes to simplify set-up and reduce errors.
