With a remarkably innovative pinch-swipe-zoom touchscreen user interface, the industry's largest high-definition display, and 4, 6, or 8 FlexChannel™ inputs that let you measure one analog or eight digital signals, the 5 Series MSO is ready for today’s toughest challenges, and tomorrow’s too. It sets a new standard for performance, analysis, and overall user experience.
More than just a new display and user interface. A new standard.
Get the big picture and take total control, with the 15.6 HD touchscreen display. Use the capacitive pinch-zoom-swipe touchscreen, front panel controls, or mouse to analyze and manage multiple signals without fighting through menus.
Available with 4, 6, or 8 FlexChannel inputs. Each can be used to look at 1 analog signal or look at 8 digital logic signals, just by changing the probe. Display any analog signal as a high-resolution waveform, a spectrum, or both at the same time, with independent acquisition controls for each domain.
Let no detail go unseen, with up to 16 bits of vertical resolution.
12-bit analog to digital converters deliver up to 16 bits of vertical resolution using advanced digital signal processing. See and measure small signal details, even if they're riding on large signals.

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