Tektronix has introduced the 2 Series of Mixed Signal Oscilloscope (MSO), the first portable oscilloscope to offer benchtop performance and Tektronix’s well-known user interface. Weighing less than 1.8kgs and 38mm thin, the 2 Series MSO can fit into a small backpack.
With the 2 Series MSO, engineers are promised to “achieve things not possible on previous oscilloscopes”, says Tektronix. The 10.1” touchscreen display makes working on the go easier and faster. The built-in capabilities of the optional Arbitrary Function Generator (AFG), pattern generator, voltmeter and frequency counter mean users have versatility built into one instrument – increasing what they can do while reducing the number of instruments to carry or purchase. With up to eight hours of battery power engineers will discover a new level of freedom on the job.
“This breakthrough product was a direct result of our proven Growth Accelerator innovation process and continued focus on our customers,” said Tami Newcombe, Tektronix President. “Our team worked closely with engineers to deeply understand their unique needs. We cannot wait to see how the 2 Series MSO improves the way our customers work.”
The 2 Series MSO joins the line-up of other Tektronix oscilloscopes – the 3, 4, 5, and 6 Series, making it easier for engineers to work effortlessly across these products, while the easy-to-use experience means engineers can do more in less time. With the feel of a mobile device, debugging is faster and more intuitive. The colored LED ring lights around the knobs indicate active sources or parameters to adjust or to indicate status.
With a variety of integrated options, the 2 Series MSO is equipped for advanced debugging in a single instrument, including:
● Bandwidths from 70 MHz-500 MHz
● Two or four analog channel inputs
● 16 digital channels (available with future software release)
● 2.5 GS/s sample rate
● Optional 50 MHz Arbitrary Function Generator
● Built-in pattern generator, voltmeter, and frequency counter (features coming soon)
● Optional battery provides up to eight hours of power
Unlocks Remote Work and Team Collaboration
Natively integrated software tools allow engineers to collaborate, troubleshoot, and debug designs across time zones. The 2 Series MSO includes TekDrive, a test and measurement data workspace in the cloud where engineers can upload, store, organize, and share any file from a connected device. Users can also perform analysis on a waveform and save it back to the cloud for immediate viewing and feedback from peers.
