With the lowest input noise and up to 10 GHz analog bandwidth, the 6 Series MSO provides the best signal fidelity for analyzing and debugging today’s embedded systems with GHz clock and bus speeds. The remarkably innovative pinch-swipe-zoom touchscreen user interface coupled with the industry’s largest high definition display and up to 8 FlexChannel® inputs that let you measure one analog or eight digital signals per channel, the 6 Series MSO is ready for today’s toughest challenges and tomorrow’s too.
Never let a lack of channels slow down your verification and debug process again
The 6 Series MSO offers better visibility into complex systems by offering four, six and eight-channel models with a large 15.6- inch high-definition (1,920 x 1,080) display. Many applications, such as embedded systems, three-phase power electronics, automotive electronics, power supply design, and Power Integrity require the observation of more than four analog signals to verify and characterize device performance and to debug challenging system issues.
Most engineers can recall situations in which they were debugging a particularly difficult problem and wanted greater system visibility and context, but the oscilloscope they were using was limited to two or four analog channels. Using a second oscilloscope involves significant effort to align the trigger points, difficulty in determining the timing relationships across the two displays, and documentation challenges.
You might assume that a six and eight-channel oscilloscope would cost 50% or 100% more than a four-channel oscilloscope, you’ll be pleasantly surprised to find that six-channel models are only ~25% more than four channel models and eight-channel models are only ~67% (or less) more than four channel models. The additional analog channels can pay for themselves quickly by enabling you to keep current and future projects on schedule.
FlexChannel® technology enables maximum flexibility and broader system visibility
The 6 Series MSO redefines what a Mixed Signal Oscilloscope (MSO) should be. FlexChannel technology enables each channel input to be used as a single analog channel, eight digital logic inputs (with the TLP058 logic probe), or simultaneous analog and spectrum views with independent acquisition controls for each domain. Imagine the flexibility and configurability this provides. You can change the configuration at any time by simply adding or removing TLP058 logic probes, so you always have the right number of digital channels.
Previous-generation MSOs required tradeoffs, with digital channels having lower sample rates or shorter record lengths than analog channels. The 6 Series MSO offers a new level of integration of digital channels. Digital channels share the same high sample rate (up to 50 GS/s), and long record length (up to 1 Gpoints) as analog channels.
