Embedded Serial Bus Analysis

Thumbnail

Automatic serial bus decoding saves time and eliminates errors versus hand decoding. Serial bus triggering and search enable you to isolate events for system-level troubleshooting.

Highlights

  • I2C, SPI
  • I3C
  • USB 2.0
  • Ethernet
  • SPMI
  • CAN, CAN FD, LIN, FlexRay
  • SENT
  • I2S/LJ/RJ/TDM
  • ARINC 429, MIL-STD-1553

Automotive Serial Bus Analysis

Thumbnail

Car designers rely on serial buses for error-free communications between ECUs, sensors and actuators. They can also rely on the 5 Series MSO, equipped with CAN, CAN FD, LIN, FlexRay, and SENT decoding and triggering to be able to get a synchronized view of their systems. The automated Automotive Ethernet compliance suite lets you test to the standard, without becoming high speed bus expert.

Jitter Analysis

Thumbnail

Clocks are the heart of every embedded system and digital communication link. Jitter and other clock distortion can impact system operation, and getting to the root cause can be challenging without the right analysis tools.

Highlights

  • Standard phase noise, TIE, and frequency plots and histograms
  • Optional advanced analysis with jitter decomposition and clock recovery

Power Electronics

Thumbnail

Make reliable, repeatable power quality, harmonics, switching loss, safe operating area measurements and more with the automated power measurement and analysis package. With up to 8 high-resolution channels and a wide range of available probes, the 5 Series MSO is also ideal for evaluating power supply sequencing, and digging into 3-phase power converters.

Highlights

  • Power quality and harmonics
  • Switching loss and safe operating area
  • In-circuit inductor and transformer analysis
  • Multi-output efficiency

Power Integrity

5 Series - Power Integrity

Today’s boards can have 20 or more power rails. Most of these are less than a few volts and have strict noise limits. Accurate measurements demand special attention.

Highlights

  • Digital Power Management option automates ripple and turn-on/off measurements
  • Up to 8 analog input channels
  • Compatible low-noise TPR Series power-rail probes
