What is mixed domain oscilloscope?
As we all know, traditional oscilloscope can grasp the waveform data, show it on screen or do some math calculations between channels. At first, oscilloscopes could only deal with an analogue signal, but can now deal with a digital signal due to computer technology speeding development. Currently oscilloscope can also analyze and debug protocols with pre-installed apps. All those functions work on time domain.
Tektronix mixed domain oscilloscope offers both time domain and frequency domain, because the only one box includes oscilloscope and spectrum analyzer, even an optional function generator. Now we can image how to utilize the amazing equipment!
In serial technologies, MDO3000 series mixed domain oscilloscope support MIL-STD-1553, I2S,LJ,RJ,TDM,CAN,LIN,RS-232/422/485/UART,I2C,SPI,FlexRay and USB protocol(LS,FS).
MDO3000 series mixed domain oscilloscope are very popular in automotive, embed serial technology, EMI troubleshooting, RF test, power measurement, signal integrity etc. applications.
Mixed Domain Oscilloscope – integrated spectrum analyze:
Every model comes standard with an integrated spectrum analyzer, enabling you to analyze RF signals up to the rated bandwidth of the scope. Option MDO3SA extends the spectrum analyzer frequency coverage to 3 GHz.
Dedicated front panel controls enable easy zoom and navigation through 10 Mpoint records. Automated search capability quickly finds and marks every occurrence of user specified events.
Integrated, upgradable arbitrary / function generator
The function generator saves bench space and enables closed loop testing by simulating sensors or unfinished system blocks. Capture real signals and replicate them as arbitrary waveforms up to 128k points long, with a single instrument.
Integrated, upgradable logic analyzer
Enables debug of digital portions of embedded designs. Trace system timing issues with broader system visibility.
Serial and parallel bus triggering and analysis
Quickly debug your parallel bus and/or common serial buses with automated trigger, decode and search.
Integrated digital voltmeter and frequency counter
Free with product registration! Enables quick measurements of DC voltage, AC+DC RMS, AC RMS and frequency
Incredibly small form factor
Saves valuable bench space by integrating a spectrum analyzer, arbitrary function generator, logic analyzer, protocol analyzer and DVM/counter into your debug tool of choice – the oscilloscope. Only 5.8 inches deep and 9 lbs yet it still provides a 9” WVGA display.
Don’t know what you’ll be working on next year? Upgrades are available to analog bandwidth, spectrum analyzer frequency range, arbitrary function generator, digital channels (MSO), serial trigger and analysis packages, and more – ensuring usefulness for years to come.
