Tektronix Expands Revolutionary MDO4000 Mixed Domain Oscilloscope Series with Entry Level Models
Tektronix, Inc., the world's leading manufacturer of oscilloscopes, announced that it has expanded its revolutionary MDO4000 Series of Mixed Domain Oscilloscopes to include two new entry level models. With the same features and functionality of the 12-time award-winning MDO4000, the new models put breakthrough time and frequency domain analysis in the hands of engineers at a more affordable price level.
Inexpensive or "cheap" RF technologies are being integrated into everyday applications from apparel tags, to livestock monitoring clips, price displays on store shelves, and short-range wireless remote control of household objects. While many of these are lower-performance applications, the addition of RF makes debug challenges greater than ever. The new MDO4000 models address this trend by providing a low entry point solution that allows engineers to capture time-correlated analog, digital and RF signals for a complete system view, saving days or even weeks of debug time.
"The market and customer response to the MDO4000 has been overwhelmingly positive, providing a 2x return on investment in the first year alone," said Dave Farrell, general manager, Mainstream Oscilloscopes at Tektronix. "The use of RF in embedded applications continues to accelerate. The MDO4000 is the ideal debug tool for these mass market applications because it includes both oscilloscope and spectrum analyzer functionality, and adds the unique capability to capture time-correlated analog, digital and RF signals."
The new MDO4014-3 and MDO4034-3 models offer four analog channels, 16 digital channels and one RF channel. To achieve prices starting at $12,200, the new models offer lower analog bandwidth of 100 MHz or 350 MHz respectively, sufficient for many embedded designs incorporating RF. RF frequency range for both models extends from 50 kHz to 3 GHz.
The MDO4000 Series offers all the feature-rich tools of the Tektronix MSO4000B Series mixed signal oscilloscopes along with an integrated spectrum analyzer, providing time correlated analog, digital, and RF signal acquisition in a single instrument. This allows engineers to debug entire wireless-enabled embedded systems with one tool that operates with the familiarity of an oscilloscope.
New Pre-Amplifier, Entry Level Oscilloscopes
Tektronix is also adding two new 100 MHz models, featuring an impressive 10.4 inch display, to the popular MSO4000B and DPO4000B Series of oscilloscopes with prices starting at $7,150.
The new models in the MDO4000, MSO4000B and DPO4000B Series of oscilloscopes along with the new pre-amplifier are available now.
