Accurate Measurements Matter

tek00010_502_377.jpg

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.

MDO4104_TPP100 probe_8447_502_502.png

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
