With the same made-for-touch user interface technology as the award-winning 5 Series and the largest and highest resolution display in its class, the 4 Series MSO sets a new expectation of how a scope should work. It offers four, six and eight channel models with a large 13.3-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 DC-to-DC power converters, require the observation of more than four analog signals to verify and characterize device performance, and to debug challenging system issues.
Imagine the flexibility and configurability with FlexChannel technology. It 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. Early model MSOs required digital channels to have lower sample rates or shorter record lengths than analog channels. The 4 Series MSO offers a new level of integration of digital channels. Digital channels share the same high sample rate (up to 6.25 GS/s), and long record length (up to 62.5 M points) as analog channels.
Unprecedented Signal Viewing Capability
The 4 Series MSO is the largest display in its class with ample room for critical readouts and analysis and the ability to see many signals at once.
Stacked Display Mode – Previously, overlaid waveforms in the same graticule forced difficult tradeoffs but the new Stacked display eliminates this. It automatically adds and removes additional horizontal waveform 'slices' (additional graticules) as waveforms are created and removed. Each slice represents the full ADC range for the waveform. All waveforms are visually separated from each other while still using the full ADC range, enabling maximum visibility and accuracy.
The Settings Bar - Waveform and scope operating parameters are displayed in the Settings Bar on the bottom of the display. Get immediate access to: Turn on channels, add math waveforms, reference waveforms, bus waveforms or enable the Arbitrary/Function generator (optional) or digital voltmeter (optional).
The Results Bar – It includes immediate, one-tap access to the most common analytical tools such as cursors, measurements, searches, measurement and bus decode results tables, plots, and notes. DVM, measurement and search results badges are displayed in the Results Bar without sacrificing any waveform viewing area.
Experience the Performance Difference
The MSO 4 Series' digital phosphor technology with FastAcq provides you with fast insight into the real operation of your device. Its fast waveform capture rate of greater than 500,000 waveforms per second increases your chances of seeing the infrequent problems common in digital systems: runt pulses, glitches, timing issues, and more. To further enhance the visibility of rarely occurring events, intensity grading indicates how often rare transients are occurring relative to normal signal characteristics.
Vertical Resolution - Capture signals of interest while minimizing the effects of unwanted noise. A new High Res mode applies a hardware-based unique Finite Impulse Response (FIR) filter based on the selected sample rate. The FIR filter maintains the maximum bandwidth possible for that sample rate while preventing aliasing and removing noise from the oscilloscope amplifiers and ADC above the usable bandwidth for the selected sample rate. High-Res mode always provides at least 12 bits of vertical resolution and extends all the way to 16 bits of vertical resolution at ≤ 125 MS/s sample rates.
Triggering - Discovering a device fault is only the first step. Next, you must capture the event of interest to identify root cause. The 4 Series MSO provides a complete set of advanced triggers. With up to a 62.5 Mpoint record length, you can capture many events of interest, even thousands of serial packets in a single acquisition.
Visual Trigger - Find the signal of interest quickly. Visual Trigger extends the instrument's triggering capabilities by scanning through all waveform acquisitions and comparing them to on-screen areas (geometric shapes). You can create an unlimited number of areas using the mouse or touchscreen, and a variety of shapes (triangles, rectangles, hexagons, or trapezoids) can be used to specify the desired trigger behavior. Once shapes are created, they can be edited interactively to create custom shapes and ideal trigger conditions. Once multiple areas are defined, a Boolean logic equation can be used to set complex trigger conditions using on-screen editing features.
Navigation and Search
The 4 Series MSO offers the industry's most comprehensive search and waveform navigation with its innovative Wave Inspector controls. These controls speed panning and zooming through your record. With a unique force-feedback system, you can move from one end of your record to the other in just seconds.
The 4 Series MSO contains a number of ports which you can use to connect the instrument to a network, directly to a PC, or to other test equipment. Three USB 2.0 ports, a USB Device port, a standard 10/100/1000BASE-T Ethernet port and an HDMI port.
Remote operation to improve collaboration - The industry-standard TekVISA protocol interface is included for using and enhancing Windows applications for data analysis and documentation. IVI-COM instrument drivers are included to enable easy communication with the oscilloscope using LAN or USBTMC connections from an external PC.
