MDO4000B Mixed Domain Oscilloscope

The oscilloscope that includes a logic analyzer, spectrum analyzer and protocol analyzer – all synchronized for an integrated view.

Although you can use the MDO4000B Series simply as a mixed signal oscilloscope or as a spectrum analyzer, the real power comes from the integration of the two. For the first time ever, you can see how your designs perform in both the time and frequency domains on a single instrument. Use powerful trigger, search and analysis tools to zero in on analog and digital anomalies. Decode serial buses alongside waveforms. And view the RF spectrum at any point in time. Quickly solve complicated design issues with an oscilloscope as integrated as your designs.
