TEKTRONIX 5 Series B mixed signal oscilloscope (MSO) improves versatility while providing high-fidelity waveforms, unique spectrum analysis capabilities and flexible signal access. Updated unit includes customer-centric features led by a new auxiliary trigger input that lets users synchronize the oscilloscope to an external signal without consuming any of the 4, 6, or 8 full-capability input channels. For the optional, built-in arbitrary/function generator, the maximum frequency output increases from 50MHz to a best-in-class 100MHz; enabling higher frequency stimulus for measurements such as Bode plots and impedance measurements. These new capabilities are invaluable for making fast, thorough checks of power integrity on power distribution networks. Product has a faster processor, making controls even more responsive and will support additional, more complex measurement analysis in the future. A new, brighter display provides greater clarity, showcasing waveform detail from the instrument’s 12-bit ADCs.
