Tektronix MSO5204B Mixed Signal Oscilloscope

Manufacturer: Tektronix
Model Number: MSO5204B
Designing with today's faster data rates and tighter timing margins requires an oscilloscope with outstanding signal acquisition performance and analysis capabilities. Tektronix MSO/DPO5000B Series oscilloscopes provide exceptional signal fidelity, with 2 GHz bandwidth and 10 GS/s sample rate, along with advanced analysis and math capabilities, on your bench and in your lab. Run Windows®-based analysis software right on the oscilloscope. Point and click Visual Triggers enable you to capture complex signals with ease. MSO models include 16 digital timing channels, and all models can be equipped to decode common serial protocols, providing a comprehensive view of your systems. The MSO5000B Series mixed-signal oscilloscopes provide 16 digital channels. These channels are tightly integrated into the oscilloscope's user interface, simplifying operation and making it possible to solve mixed-signal issues easily. MSO functionality can also be added later as a user upgrade.
