Feature-rich Tools for Debugging Mixed Signal Designs
With the MSO4054B Mixed Signal Oscilloscope, you can analyze up to 20 analog and digital signals with a single instrument to quickly find and diagnose problems in complex designs. Its 500 MHz bandwidth and a minimum of 5X oversampling on all channels ensure you have the performance you need to see fast-changing signal details. To capture long windows of signal activity while maintaining fine timing resolution, the MSO4054B offers a deep record length of 20M points standard on all channels.
Wave Inspector® Navigation and Search
A 20M point record length represents thousands of screens of information. The MSO4054B enables you to find your event in seconds with Wave Inspector, the industry's best tool for navigation and search. With Wave Inspector® controls for rapid waveform navigation, automated serial and parallel bus analysis, limit and mask testing, and automated power analysis — the MSO4054B Oscilloscope from Tektronix provides the feature-rich tools you need to simplify and speed debug of your complex design.
Comprehensive Features Speed Every Stage of Debug
The MSO4054B offers a robust set of features to speed every stage of debugging your design — from quickly discovering an anomaly and capturing it, to searching your waveform record for the event and analyzing its characteristics and your device's behavior.
Digital Phosphor Technology
The MSO4054B's digital phosphor technology provides you with fast insight into the real operation of your device. Its fast waveform capture rate — greater than 50,000 wfm/s — gives you a high probability of quickly seeing the infrequent problems common in digital systems: runt pulses, glitches, timing issues, and more. Waveforms are superimposed with one another and waveform points that occur more frequently are intensified. This quickly highlights the events that over time occur more often or, in the case of infrequent anomalies, occur less often.
Accurate High-speed Probing
The TPP0500 probes, included standard with every DPO4054B oscilloscope, provides 500 MHz of analog bandwidth, and less than 4 pF of capacitive loading. The extremely low capacitive loading minimizes adverse affects on your circuits and is more forgiving of longer ground leads. And, since the probe bandwidth matches your oscilloscope bandwidth, you can see the high-frequency components in your signal which is critical for high-speed applications. The TPP0500 probe, one of the TPP Series of passive voltage probes, offer all the benefits of general-purpose probes like high dynamic range, flexible connection options, and robust mechanical design, while providing the performance of active probes.
Mixed Signal Design and Analysis
The MSO4054B 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.
Serial Triggering and Analysis (Optional)
On a serial bus, a single signal often includes address, control, data, and clock information. This can make isolating events of interest difficult. The MSO4054B offers a robust set of tools for debugging serial buses with automatic trigger, decode, and search for I2C, SPI, USB, Ethernet, CAN, LIN, FlexRay, RS-232/422/485/UART, MIL-STD-1553, and I2S/LJ/RJ/TDM.
Power Analysis (Optional)
The MSO/DPO4000B Series optional power analysis tools greatly simplify these tasks, enabling quick and accurate analysis of power quality, switching loss, harmonics, safe operating area (SOA), modulation, ripple, and slew rate (di/dt, dv/dt).
Limit/Mask Testing (Optional)
The MSO4054B offers both limit and mask testing capability useful for long-term signal monitoring, characterizing signals during design, or testing on a production line. A robust set of telecommunications and computer standards are provided. Additionally, custom masks can be created and used for characterizing signals.
The TekVPI probe interface sets the standard for ease of use in probing. In addition to the secure, reliable connection that the interface provides, TekVPI probes feature status indicators and controls, as well as a probe menu button right on the compensation box itself. This button brings up a probe menu on the oscilloscope display with all relevant settings and controls for the probe. The TekVPI interface enables direct attachment of current probes without requiring a separate power supply. TekVPI probes can be controlled remotely through USB, GPIB, or LAN, enabling more versatile solutions in ATE environments.
