MSO Mixed Signal Oscilloscope

This changes everything!


Overview

The most channels, the largest display, the greatest experience - the scope that all other scopes will be measured by

With a remarkably innovative pinch-swipe-zoom touchscreen interface, the industry's largest high-definition display, and 4, 6, or 8 FlexChannelTM inputs that let you measure one analog or 8 digital signals, the 5-Series MSO is ready for today's toughest challenges, and tomorrow's too. It sets a new standard for performance, analysis and overall user experience.

MSO 5-Series 16-bit resolution display
Let no detail go unseen, with up to 16 bits of vertical resolution.

B12-bit analog to digital converters deliver up to 16 bit of vertical resolution using advanced digital signal processing. See and measure small signal details, even if they're riding on large signals.


The core of the new 5 Series MSO - the T49 ASIC

The Tek49 is a Tektronix proprietry ASIC and the product of the largest ASIC investment ever in Tektronix's history. It is the core of MSO 5 Series oscilloscope and is what gives the scope its Multliple FlexChannel capability at such a High Resolution.
In this short video Director of Technology, Bart Mooyman-Beck talks about the design philosophy of the T49 and its impact on the new MSO 5 Series scope.
