A powerful scope is only the start.

Today’s engineering world is dominated by multi-core processors, serial buses, and wireless interfaces. At the heart of the MDO3000 is a tried-and-true Tektronix oscilloscope paired with a base spectrum analyzer and digital voltmeter. Then you can customize it to your testing needs. Add 16 logic channels, a 50 MHz arbitrary/function generator, protocol analysis, and an expanded 3 GHz spectrum analyzer to help tackle today’s—and tomorrow’s—complex designs.


  • Award winning oscilloscope with 125 trigger combinations
  • 10 Mpoint record length with Wave Inspector® controls
  • Base spectrum analyzer included
  • Add instruments and functionality as your testing needs evolve

Accurate Measurements Matter

Put simply, the MDO3000 Series scope is designed to make the most accurate measurements in the industry. While many other instruments only offer low-resolution display data, the MDO3000 takes measurements on actual acquisition data, providing an unrivaled view into your designs. In fact, we’re so confident in the MDO3000 will give you total confidence in your measurements that we guarantee our specifications. After all, measurement accuracy impacts design integrity. Why settle for anything less than exact?

The best probes at the best price: free.

Probes should not be overlooked as a key element in the measurement signal path. When you buy an MDO3000 you get the industry’s best probes free. Featuring industry-best loading of 3.9 pF and high bandwidth to match your oscilloscope, the TPP-series probes will be your go-to probe for everyday use.


  • TPP-series probes included standard, one per analog channel
  • Industry-best capacitive probe loading of 3.9 pF
  • 250 MHz, 500 MHz or 1 GHz probe bandwidth to match the scope’s bandwidth

Make Wireless Measurements like an RF Expert – without having to become one

Are wireless communications and EMI considerations pulling you from your comfort zone? Or are you an RF expert who needs an oscilloscope capable of making time and frequency domain measurements? Either way, the MDO3000 oscilloscope with a built-in spectrum analyzer is up to the task. Unlike other oscilloscopes that offer FFT “spectrum analysis”, only the MDO3000 has a true spectrum analyzer built right in, enabling you to perform RF measurements up to 3 GHz without having to leave the comfort of your scope.


  • Base spectrum analyzer, included standard
  • Available 3 GHz spectrum analyzer upgrade
  • Industry’s only true integrated spectrum analyzer hardware

Embedded Serial Bus Trigger, Decode and Analysis

A single serial bus signal often includes address, control, data, and clock information; making isolating events of interest difficult. The serial application modules for the MDO3000 series transform the oscilloscope into a robust tool for debugging serial buses with automatic trigger, decode, and search.


  • I2C, SPI, RS-232 / 422 / 485 / UART
  • CAN/CAN FD, LIN, FlexRay
  • MIL-STD-1553 , USB

Power Measurements and Analysis

The quest for ever-higher energy efficiency is placing new demands on designers and test instruments alike. Standby power constraints, higher switching speeds and signal ranges, lower-leakage semiconductor devices are pushing test conditions to new extremes. The MDO3000 offers power test solutions to address these ever evolving requirements.


  • Power loss measurement at switching device
  • Measurement and analysis of ripple and noise
  • Characterization of power semiconductor devices
  • Debugging active power factor correction circuits

Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) and Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC)

When performing design EMI/EMC testing, there is always risk it will fail; leading to schedule and budget issues. The MDO3000 with built-in spectrum analyzer enables you to perform pre-compliance testing in your lab - greatly improving the probability of a successful first pass of full EMI compliance testing.

Automotive Buses – CAN/CAN FD Trigger, Decode & Analysis

The technical requirements of today’s automobiles require more sophisticated and sensitive electronic components and systems than ever. With six instruments in one, the Tektronix MDO3000 was developed to help meet the challenges for testing and verification of these advanced technologies. Now a single instrument can be used for:

  • Debugging & verifying CAN FD, CAN, LIN and FlexRay
  • High power testing for hybrid/electric vehicles
  • Verifying in-car wireless systems
  • New component eval (MEMS sensors, LED drivers, LEDs
