Product Description

MSO72004C

Tektronix Mixed Signal Oscilloscope

The DPO/DSA/MSO70000 Series is the most accurate real-time performance oscilloscope on the market. Discover critical signal information with a 4 channel system bandwidth of 20 GHz combined with the highest waveform capture capability for low noise, high margin visibility. Capture accurately using the only available hardware-based serial pattern trigger for data rates up to 6.25 Gb/s. Increase system visibility using the MSO70000 models which include 16 logic channels with a very accurate 80psec timing resolution. The MSO70000C combines the signal visibility and timing features of a high performance logic analyzer with the analog precision, probing and usability of a high performance real-time oscilloscope. This makes it the ideal debug and verification tool for such demanding high-speed design applications as DDR memory, high performance ASICs, FPGAs, system-on-a-chip devices, and digital RF.

Along with a two-fold increase in sampling rate compared to the “B” Series it replaces, the DPO/DSA/MSO70000C Series features a faster compute platform.  This new platform offers faster processing for longer data records such as jitter, noise, BER (bit error rate) measurements and statistics. Boot and application start up times are also significantly quicker.

· 16 Logic Channels with 80 ps Timing Resolution for Debug of Digital and Analog Signals (MSO70000 Series only)

· iCapture (MSO70000 Series only): When an anomaly is seen on digital lines, iCapture delivers new insight into the analog behavior of the digital signals. With iCapture, you can route any 4 of the 16 logic channels to the MSO70000 Series analog acquisition system so that these signals can be viewed in finer detail. The unique iCapture multiplexer circuitry provides simultaneous digital and analog views of signals without having to move the logic probe or double probe the circuit

· Pinpoint® Triggering – Minimize time spent trying to acquire problem signals for efficient troubleshooting and shortened debug time

· 6.25 Gb/s Real-time Serial Trigger – Assures triggering on the first instance of a specified NRZ or 8b/10b pattern to allow isolation of pattern-dependent effects

· Search & Mark – Provides waveform pattern matching and software triggers for signals of interest

· P7500 TriMode™ Probing System – Perfectly matched signal connectivity from 4 GHz to 20 GHz

· Application Support for High-speed Serial Industry Standards, RF, Power Supplies, and Memory – Enables standard-specific certification, measurement automation, and ease of use
