Thumbnail

Engineering designs today are a complex mix of processors, serial buses, and wireless interfaces. At the core of the MDO4000C is a reputable Tektronix oscilloscope paired with an expandable platform. Customize it to your testing needs. Add 16 logic channels, a 50 MHz arbitrary/function generator, protocol analysis, and an integrated true hardware 3 or 6 GHz spectrum analyzer to help tackle complex designs challenges.

Highlights

  • Integrated triggered acquisition system - over 125 trigger combinations in the time AND frequency domains
  • 20 Mpoint record length with Wave Inspector® controls
  • True spectrum analyzer hardware enables real spectrum analysis
  • Expandable functionality ensures usefulness well into the future

Accurate Measurements Matter

Thumbnail

Put simply, the MDO Series scopes are designed to make the most accurate measurements in the industry – providing an unrivaled view into your designs. The MDO4000C takes measurements on actual acquisition data, while many other instruments only offer a snapshot view by taking measurements on display data. It doesn’t end there. We guarantee more specifications than many of our competitors, ensuring the MDO4000C will give you total confidence in your measurements. After all, measurement accuracy impacts design integrity. Why settle for anything less than precise?

Industry Leading Probes – included with every purchase.

Thumbnail

When examining the measurement signal path, probes are a key element that cannot be overlooked. When you buy an MDO4000C the industry’s best probes are included in the price. Featuring industry-best loading of 3.9 pF and bandwidth matched to your oscilloscope, the TPP-series probes will be your go-to probe for everyday use.

Highlights

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

Wireless Measurements - at a whole new level

Thumbnail

Whether RF measurements make you smile or cringe, the MDO4000C oscilloscope with integrated hardware spectrum analyzer and SignalVu-PC software has you covered. Unlike oscilloscopes that offer FFT “spectrum analysis,” the MDO4000C with true spectrum analyzer provides a triggered acquisition system that is integrated across analog, digital and spectrum analyzer channels. You can perform RF measurements up to 6 GHz, and correlate events in the frequency domain with the time domain phenomena that caused them.

Highlights

  • Available 3 or 6 GHz spectrum analyzer option
  • Industry’s only true integrated spectrum analyzer hardware
  • Spectrum analysis time-synchronized with analog and digital waveforms

Accidents happen. Make sure you're protected.

We have the only plan in the industry to offer coverage for accidental damage. Yes, this includes screen damage, spills, broken mounts, and electrostatic discharge or electronic overstress events. Reduce unplanned repair or replacement costs with our Total Protection Plan. Watch the video or click below to learn more.
