Never let a lack of channels slow down your verification and debug process again!

The 5 Series MSO offers better visibility into complex systems by offering four, six and eight channel models with a large 15.6" high definition (1,920 x 1,080) display. Many applications, such as embedded systems, three-phase power electronics, automotive electronics, power supply design, and DC-to-DC power converters, require the observation of more than four analog signals to verify and characterize device performance, and to debug challenging system issues.

Most engineers can recall situations in which they were debugging a particularly difficult problem and wanted greater system visibility and context, but the scope they were using was limited to two or four analog channels. Using a second scope involves significant effort to align trigger points, difficulty in determining timing relationships across the two displays, and documentation challenges.

And while you might assume that a six and eight channel scope would cost 50% or 100% more than a four channel scope, you'll be pleasantly surprised to find that six channel models are only ~25% more than four channel models and eight channel models are only ~67% more than four channel models. The additional analog channels can pay for themselves quickly by enabling you to keep current and future projects on schedule.

FlexChannel™ technology enables maximum flexibility and broader system visibility

The 5 Series MSO redefines what a Mixed Signal Oscilloscope (MSO) should be. FlexChannel technology enables each of the inputs on the instrument to be used as a single analog channel or eight digital channels. The conversion is done by simply attaching a TLP058 logic probe to any input. Imagine the flexibility and configurability this provides.

With an eight FlexChannel model, you can configure it to look at eight analog and zero digital signals. Or seven analog and eight digital. Or six analog and 16 digital, five analog and 24 digital and so on. You can change the configuration at any time by simply adding or removing TLP058 logic probes, so you always have the right number of digital channels.

 

MSO5-Series-Datasheet

 

FlexChannel technology enables the ultimate in flexibility. Each input can be configured as a single analog or eight digital channels based on the type of probe you attach.

The 5 Series MSO offers a new level of integration of digital channels. Digital channels share the same high sample rate (up to 6.25 GS/s) for fine timing resolution, and long record length (up to 125 Mpoints) for long time captures as analog channels. Previous-generation MSOs required tradeoffs, with digital channels having lower sample rates or shorter record lengths than analog channels.

 

MSO5-Series-Datasheet

 

The TLP058 provides eight high performance digital inputs. Connect as many TLP058 probes as you like, enabling up to a maximum of 64 digital channels.
