2-ULTIMATE AFG and Serial Trigger and Analysis OptionsArbitrary/Function Generator
The 2 Series MSO optional 50 MHz arbitrary function generator is perfect for simulating sensor signals within a design or adding noise to signals to perform margin testing. The AFG output is multiplexed with the Aux out signal.
Several predefined waveforms including sine, square, pulse, ramp/triangle, DC, noise, sin(x)/x (Sinc), gaussian, lorentz, exponential rise/fall, Haversine, and cardiac are included.
The arbitrary waveform generator provides 128k points of record for loading waveforms captured on the analog input, a saved file. Alternatively Tektronix ArbExpress PC-based waveform creation and editing software can be used to create complex waveforms quickly and easily.Serial Trigger and Analysis
The 2 Series MSO offers a robust set of tools for working with the most common serial buses found in embedded design including I2C, SPI, RS-232/422/485/UART, CAN, CAN FD, LIN, SENT.
The protocol decode and triggering capability is invaluable to trace the flow of activity through a system by observing the traffic on one or more serial buses.
- Serial protocol triggering lets you trigger on specific packet content including start of packet, specific addresses, specific data content, unique identifiers, and errors.
- Bus waveforms provide a higher-level, combined view of the individual signals (for example clock, data, chip enable, etc.) that make up your bus, making it easy to identify where packets begin and end, and identifying sub-packet components such as address, data, identifier, CRC, and so on.
- The bus waveform is time-aligned with all other displayed signals, making it easy to measure timing relationships across various parts of the system under test.
- Bus decode table provides a tabular view of all decoded packets in an acquisition. Packets are time stamped and listed consecutively with columns for each component (address, data, and so on).
