RS Components offers two brand-new ranges of test and measurement devices from Tektronix: the 3 Series MDO (mixed-domain oscilloscope) and the 4 Series MSO (mixed-signal oscilloscope).
Designed to satisfy a broad range of demanding debugging and signal analysis applications at an affordable price, the scopes provide the largest display sizes in their class and highly intuitive touchscreen user interfaces, as well as outstanding performance and advanced analysis capabilities. The design of the scopes is based upon the design that the company introduced in its 5 and 6 Series MSOs. They implement touchscreens and front panels that make the tool extremely easy to use with key controls readily available, rather than making engineers search through multiple menus to find the correct settings.
Key features of the 4 Series MSOs incorporate a 13.3" display with 1920 x 1080 HD resolution, the application of 12-bit ADCs and bandwidths starting at 200MHz and going up to 1.5GHz. It is also claimed to be the first scope in its class to provide six input channels, as well as the company’s innovative FlexChannel technology, which allows any input channel to be converted to eight digital channels via the connection of a logic probe.
The 3 Series MDOs offer a 11.6" HD display, a similar set of knobs and buttons to the 4 Series, but also has a depth of less than 6", consequently not taking up too much room on the desktop.
