Digital phosphor technology provides you with fast insight into the real
operation of your device. Its fast waveform capture rate – greater than
280,000 wfms/s with FastAcq – gives you a high probability of quickly
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
is used to indicate how often rare transients are occurring relative to normal
signal characteristics. There are four waveform palettes available in
FastAcq acquisition mode.
The Temperature palette uses color-grading to indicate frequency of
occurrence with hot colors like red/yellow indicating frequently
occurring events and colder colors like blue/green indicating rarely
occurring events.
The Spectral palette uses color-grading to indicate frequency of
occurrence with colder colors like blue indicating frequently occurring
events and hot colors like red indicating rarely occurring events.
The Normal palette uses the default channel color (like yellow for
channel one) along with gray-scale to indicate frequency of occurrence
where frequently occurring events are bright.
The Inverted palette uses the default channel color along with grayscale to indicate frequency of occurrence where rarely occurring events
are bright.
These color palettes quickly highlight the events that over time occur more
often or, in the case of infrequent anomalies, occur less often.
Infinite or variable persistence choices determine how long waveforms stay
on the display, helping you to determine how often an anomaly is occurring.

Digital phosphor technology with FastAcq enables greater than 280,000 wfms/s
waveform capture rate and real-time color-intensity grading.
Triggering
Discovering a device fault is only the first step. Next, you must capture the
event of interest to identify root cause. To enable this, the MDO3000
contains over 125 trigger combinations providing a complete set of triggers
- including runt, logic, pulse width/glitch, setup and hold violation, serial
packet, and parallel data - to help quickly locate your event of interest. And
with up to a 10 M record length, you can capture many events of interest,
even thousands of serial packets, in a single acquisition for further analysis
while maintaining high resolution to zoom in on fine signal details.
Wave Inspector controls provide unprecedented efficiency in viewing, navigating, and
analyzing waveform data. Zip through your long record by turning the outer pan control
(1). Get details from the beginning to end in seconds. See something of interest and want
to see more details? Just turn the inner zoom control (2).
Zoom and pan
A dedicated, two-tier front-panel control provides intuitive control of both
zooming and panning. The inner control adjusts the zoom factor (or zoom
scale); turning it clockwise activates zoom and goes to progressively higher
zoom factors, while turning it counterclockwise results in lower zoom
factors and eventually turning zoom off. No longer do you need to navigate
through multiple menus to adjust your zoom view. The outer control pans
the zoom box across the waveform to quickly get to the portion of waveform
you are interested in. The outer control also utilizes force-feedback to
determine how fast to pan on the waveform. The farther you turn the outer
control, the faster the zoom box moves. Pan direction is changed by simply
turning the control the other way.
User marks
Over 125 trigger combinations make capturing your event of interest easy.
Wave Inspector® waveform navigation and automated
search
With long record lengths, a single acquisition can include thousands of
screens of waveform data. Wave Inspector®, the industry’s best tool for
waveform navigation and automated search, enables you to find events of
interest in seconds.
Press the Set Mark front-panel button to place one or more marks on the
waveform. Navigating between marks is as simple as pressing the
Previous (←) and Next (→) buttons on the front panel.
Search marks
The Search button allows you to automatically search through your long
acquisition looking for user-defined events. All occurrences of the event are
highlighted with search marks and are easily navigated to, using the frontpanel Previous (←) and Next (→) buttons. Search types include edge,
pulse width/glitch, timeout, runt, logic, setup and hold, rise/fall time, parallel
bus, and I2C, SPI, RS-232/422/485/UART, USB 2.0, CAN, LIN, FlexRay,
MIL-STD-1553, and Audio packet content. A search mark table provides a
tabular view of the events found during the automated search. Each event
is shown with a time stamp, making timing measurements between events
easy.

Waveform analysis
Verifying that your prototype’s performance matches simulations and meets
the project’s design goals requires analyzing its behavior. Tasks can range
from simple checks of rise times and pulse widths to sophisticated power
loss analysis and investigation of noise sources.
The oscilloscope offers a comprehensive set of integrated analysis tools
including waveform- and screen-based cursors, automated measurements,
advanced waveform math including arbitrary equation editing, FFT
analysis, waveform histograms, and trend plots for visually determining how
a measurement is changing over time.
Search step 1: You define what you would like to find.
Automated measurement readouts provide repeatable, statistical views of waveform
characteristics.
Search step 2: Wave Inspector automatically searches through the record and marks
each event with a hollow white triangle. You can then use the Previous and Next buttons
to jump from one event to the next.
Each measurement has help text and graphics associated with it that help explain how
the measurement is made.
Search step 3: The Search Mark table provides a tabular view of each of the events
found by the automated search. Each event is shown with a time stamp making timing
measurements between events easy.

Waveform histograms show visually how waveforms vary over time.
Horizontal waveform histograms are especially useful for gaining insight
into how much jitter is on a clock signal, and what the distribution of that
jitter is. Vertical histograms are especially useful for gaining insight into how
much noise is on a signal, and what the distribution of that noise is.
Measurements taken on a waveform histogram provide analytical
information about the distribution of a waveform histogram, providing
insight into just how broad a distribution is, the amount of standard
deviation, the mean value, etc.

Video design and development
Power analysis (optional)
Many video engineers have remained loyal to analog oscilloscopes,
believing the intensity gradations on an analog display are the only way to
see certain video waveform details. The fast waveform capture rate of the
MDO3000, coupled with its intensity-graded view of the signal, provides the
same information-rich display as an analog oscilloscope, but with much
more detail and all the benefits of digital scopes.
Ever increasing consumer demands for longer battery-life devices and for
green solutions that consume less power require power-supply designers to
characterize and minimize switching losses to improve efficiency. In
addition, the supply’s power levels, output purity, and harmonic feedback
into the power line must be characterized to comply with national and
regional power quality standards. Historically, making these and many
other power measurements on an oscilloscope has been a long, manual,
and tedious process. The MDO3000’s optional power analysis tools greatly
simplify these tasks, enabling quick, repeatable and accurate analysis of
power quality, switching loss, harmonics, safe operating area (SOA),
modulation, ripple, and slew rate (di/dt, dv/dt). Completely integrated into
the oscilloscope, the power analysis tools provide automated, repeatable
power measurements with a touch of a button. The optional power analysis
functionality is offered free for a 30-day trial period. This free trial period
starts automatically when the instrument is powered on for the first time.
Standard features such as IRE and mV graticules, holdoff by fields, video
polarity, HDTV and custom (nonstandard) video triggers, and an Autoset
smart enough to detect video signals, make these the easiest to use
oscilloscopes on the market for video applications. And with high
bandwidth, four analog inputs, and a built-in 75 Ω input termination (not
available on 1 GHz models), the oscilloscope provides ample performance
for analog and digital video use. There is even a video picture mode
enabling you to see the picture of the video signal you are viewing – for
NTSC and PAL signals.

Limit/Mask testing (optional)
TekVPI® probe interface
A common task during the development process is characterizing the
behavior of certain signals in a system. One method, called limit testing, is
to compare a tested signal to a known good or "golden" version of the
same signal with user-defined vertical and horizontal tolerances. Another
common method, called mask testing, is to compare a tested signal to a
mask, looking for where a signal under test violates the mask. The
MDO3000 Series offers both limit and mask testing capability useful for
long-term signal monitoring, characterizing signals during design, or testing
on a production line. Tailor a test to your specific requirements by defining
test duration in number of waveforms or time, a violation threshold that
must be met before considering a test a failure, counting hits along with
statistical information, and actions upon violations, test failure, and test
complete. Whether specifying a mask from a known good signal or from a
custom mask, conducting pass/fail tests in search of waveform anomalies
such as glitches has never been easier. The optional limit/mask test
functionality is offered free for a 30-day trial period. This free trial period
starts automatically when the instrument is powered on for the first time.
The TekVPI probe interface sets the standard for ease of use in probing. In
addition to the secure, reliable connection that the interface provides,
TekVPI probes feature status indicators and controls, as well as a probe
menu button right on the comp box itself. This button brings up a probe
menu on the oscilloscope display with all relevant settings and controls for
the probe. The TekVPI interface enables direct attachment of current
probes without requiring a separate power supply. TekVPI probes can be
controlled remotely through USB, GPIB, or LAN, enabling more versatile
solutions in ATE environments. The instrument provides up to 25 W of
power to the front panel connectors from the internal power supply.
TekVPI probe interface simplifies connecting your probes to the oscilloscope.

Spectrum Analyzer
The MDO3000 is the first oscilloscope in its class to include an integrated
spectrum analyzer. Each oscilloscope includes a spectrum analyzer with a
frequency range of 9 kHz up to the analog bandwidth of the instrument. The
spectrum analyzer frequency range of each instrument can be upgraded
from 9 kHz to 3 GHz (option MDO3SA), enabling spectral analysis on most
consumer wireless standards.
Fast and accurate spectral analysis
Key spectral parameters are adjusted quickly with the dedicated front-panel menus and
keypad.
When using the spectrum analyzer input, the MDO3000 Series display
becomes a full-screen Frequency Domain view.
Intelligent, efficient markers
Key spectral parameters such as Center Frequency, Span, Reference
Level, and Resolution Bandwidth are all adjusted quickly and easily using
the dedicated front-panel menus and keypad.
In a traditional spectrum analyzer, it can be a very tedious task to turn on
and place enough markers to identify all your peaks of interest. The
MDO3000 Series makes this process far more efficient by automatically
placing markers on peaks that indicate both the frequency and the
amplitude of each peak. You can adjust the criteria that the oscilloscope
uses to automatically find the peaks.
The highest amplitude peak is referred to as the reference marker and is
shown in red. Marker readouts can be switched between Absolute and
Delta readouts. When Delta is selected, marker readouts show each peak's
delta frequency and delta amplitude from the reference marker.
MDO3000 frequency domain display.
Two manual markers are also available for measuring non-peak portions of
the spectrum. When enabled, the reference marker is attached to one of
the manual markers, enabling delta measurements from anywhere in the
spectrum. In addition to frequency and amplitude, manual marker readouts
also include noise density and phase noise readouts depending on whether
Absolute or Delta readouts are selected. A "Reference Marker to Center"
function instantly moves the frequency indicated by the reference marker to
center frequency.

Datasheet
Ultra-wide capture bandwidth
Today's wireless communications vary significantly with time, using
sophisticated digital modulation schemes and, often, transmission
techniques that involve bursting the output. These modulation schemes can
have very wide bandwidth as well. Traditional swept or stepped spectrum
analyzers are ill equipped to view these types of signals as they are only
able to look at a small portion of the spectrum at any one time.
Automated peak markers identify critical information at a glance. As shown here, the five
highest amplitude peaks that meet the threshold and excursion criteria are automatically
marked along with the peak's frequency and amplitude.
Spectrogram
The MDO3000 Series includes a spectrogram display which is ideal for
monitoring slowly changing RF phenomena. The x-axis represents
frequency, just like a typical spectrum display. However, the y-axis
represents time, and color is used to indicate amplitude.
The amount of spectrum acquired in one acquisition is called the capture
bandwidth. Traditional spectrum analyzers sweep or step the capture
bandwidth through the desired span to build the requested image. As a
result, while the spectrum analyzer is acquiring one portion of the spectrum,
the event you care about may be happening in another portion of the
spectrum. Most spectrum analyzers on the market today have 10 MHz
capture bandwidths, sometimes with expensive options to extend that to
20, 40, or even 160 MHz in some cases.
In order to address the bandwidth requirements of modern RF, the
MDO3000 Series provides up to 3 GHz of capture bandwidth. The
spectrum is generated from a single acquisition, thus guaranteeing you'll
see the events you're looking for in the frequency domain.
Spectrogram slices are generated by taking each spectrum and "flipping it
up on its edge" so that it's one pixel row tall, and then assigning colors to
each pixel based on the amplitude at that frequency. Cold colors (blue,
green) are low amplitude and hotter colors (yellow, red) are higher
amplitude. Each new acquisition adds another slice at the bottom of the
spectrogram and the history moves up one row. When acquisitions are
stopped, you can scroll back through the spectrogram to look at any
individual spectrum slice.

900 MHz and out of the device through Bluetooth at 2.4 GHz, captured with a single
acquisition.
Spectrum traces
The MDO3000 Series spectrum analyzer offers four different traces or
views including Normal, Average, Max Hold, and Min Hold.
Spectrogram display illustrates slowly moving RF phenomena. As shown here, a signal
that has multiple peaks is being monitored. As the peaks change in both frequency and
amplitude over time, the changes are easily seen in the Spectrogram display.

Mixed Domain Oscilloscopes -- MDO3000 Series
RF probing
Signal input methods on spectrum analyzers are typically limited to cabled
connections or antennas. But with the optional TPA-N-VPI adapter, any
active, 50 Ω TekVPI probe can be used with the spectrum analyzer on the
MDO3000 Series. This enables additional flexibility when hunting for noise
sources and enables easier spectral analysis by using true signal browsing
on a spectrum analyzer input.
In addition, an optional preamplifier accessory assists in the investigation of
lower-amplitude signals. The TPA-N-PRE preamplifier provides 10 dB
nominal gain across the 9 kHz – 3 GHz frequency range.
Normal, Average, Max Hold, and Min Hold spectrum traces
RF measurements
The MDO3000 Series includes three automated RF measurements Channel Power, Adjacent Channel Power Ratio, and Occupied Bandwidth.
When one of these RF measurements is activated, the oscilloscope
automatically turns on the Average spectrum trace and sets the detection
method to Average for optimal measurement results.
The optional TPA-N-VPI adapter enables any active, 50 Ω TekVPI probe to be
connected to the RF input.
Arbitrary Function Generator (optional)
The MDO3000 contains an optional integrated arbitrary function generator
(option MDO3AFG), perfect for simulating sensor signals within a design or
adding noise to signals to perform margin testing.
Automated Channel Power measurement
Advanced RF analysis
The MDO3000 can save the uncalibrated baseband I and Q data from
spectrum analyzer acquisitions to a .TIQ file. These files can then be
imported into Tektronix SignalVu-PC software for general purpose
modulation and pulse analysis or RSAVu for analysis of commercial
wireless standards.
The integrated function generator provides output of predefined waveforms
up to 50 MHz for sine, square, pulse, ramp/triangle, DC, noise, sin(x)/x
(Sinc), Gaussian, Lorentz, exponential rise/fall, Haversine and cardiac.
The arbitrary waveform generator provides 128 k points of record for
storing waveforms from the analog input, a saved internal file location, a
USB mass storage device, or from an external PC. Once a waveform is in
the edit memory of the arbitrary waveform generator, it can be modified via
an on-screen editor and then replicated out of the generator. The
MDO3000 is compatible with Tektronix’ ArbExpress PC-based waveform
creation and editing software, making creation of complex waveforms fast
and easy. Transfer waveform files to your MDO3000 edit memory via USB
or LAN or using a USB mass storage device to be output from the AFG in
the oscilloscope.

Color-coded digital waveform display
Color-coded digital traces display ones in green and zeros in blue. This
coloring is also used in the digital channel monitor. The monitor shows if
signals are high, low, or are transitioning so you can see channel activity at
a glance without having to clutter your display with unneeded digital
waveforms.
Waveform type selection in the integrated AFG.
The multiple transition detection hardware shows you a white edge on the
display when the system detects multiple transitions. White edges indicate
that more information is available by zooming in or acquiring at faster
sampling rates. In most cases zooming in will reveal the pulse that was not
viewable with the previous settings. If the white edge is still present after
zooming in as far as possible, this indicates that increasing the sample rate
on the next acquisition will reveal higher frequency information than the
previous settings could acquire.
You can group digital waveforms and enter waveform labels by using a
USB keyboard. By simply placing digital waveforms next to each other, they
form a group.
Arbitrary waveform editor showing the point-by-point editor.
Logic Analyzer (optional)
The logic analyzer (option MDO3MSO) provides 16 digital channels which
are tightly integrated into the oscilloscope's user interface. This simplifies
operation and makes it possible to solve mixed-signal issues easily.
With color-coded digital waveform display, groups are created by simply placing digital
channels together on the screen, allowing digital channels to be moved as a group.
Once a group is formed, you can position all the channels contained in that
group collectively. This greatly reduces the normal setup time associated
with positioning channels individually
MagniVu™ high-speed acquisition
The MDO3000 with MDO3MSO option provides 16 integrated digital channels enabling
you to view and analyze time-correlated analog and digital signals.
10 www.tektronix.com
The main digital acquisition mode on the MDO3000 Series will capture up
to 10 M at 500 MS/s (2 ns resolution). In addition to the main record, the
MDO3000 provides an ultra high-resolution record called MagniVu which
acquires 10,000 points at up to 8.25 GS/s (121.2 ps resolution). Both main
and MagniVu waveforms are acquired on every trigger and can be switched
between in the display at any time, running or stopped. MagniVu provides
significantly finer timing resolution than comparable oscilloscopes on the
market, instilling confidence when making critical timing measurements on
digital waveforms.
Mixed Domain Oscilloscopes -- MDO3000 Series
Serial Protocol Triggering and Analysis
(optional)
On a serial bus, a single signal often includes address, control, data, and
clock information. This can make isolating events of interest difficult.
Automatic trigger, decode, and search on bus events and conditions gives
you a robust set of tools for debugging serial buses. The optional serial
protocol triggering and analysis functionality is offered free for a 30-day trial
period. This free trial period starts automatically when the instrument is
powered on for the first time.
The MagniVu high-resolution record provides 121.2 ps timing resolution, enabling you to
take critical timing measurements on your digital waveforms.
P6316 MSO probe
This unique probe design offers two eight-channel pods, simplifying the
process of connecting to the device-under-test. When connecting to square
pins, the P6316 can connect directly to 8×2 square pin headers spaced on
tenth-inch centers. When more attachment flexibility is required, you can
use the included flying lead sets and grabbers to clip onto surface mount
devices or test points. The P6316 offers outstanding electrical
characteristics applying only 8 pF of capacitive loading with 101 kΩ input
impedance.
Triggering on a specific address and data packet going across an I2C bus. The yellow
waveform is clock and the blue waveform is the data. A bus waveform provides decoded
packet content including Start, Address, Read/Write, Data, and Stop.
Serial triggering
Trigger on packet content such as start of packet, specific addresses,
specific data content, unique identifiers, etc. on popular serial interfaces
such as I2C, SPI, RS-232/422/485/UART, USB2.0, CAN, LIN, FlexRay,
MIL-STD-1553, and I2S/LJ/RJ/TDM.
Bus display
Provides a higher-level, combined view of the individual signals (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, etc.
Bus decoding
The P6316 MSO probe offers two eight-channel pods to simplify connecting to your
device.
Tired of having to visually inspect the waveform to count clocks, determine
if each bit is a 1 or a 0, combine bits into bytes, and determine the hex
value? Let the oscilloscope do it for you! Once you’ve set up a bus, the
MDO3000 Series will decode each packet on the bus, and display the value
in hex, binary, decimal (USB, LIN, FlexRay, and MIL-STD-1553 only),
signed decimal (I2S/LJ/RJ/TDM only), or ASCII (USB, MIL-STD-1553 and
RS-232/422/485/UART only) in the bus waveform.

Search (serial triggering)
Serial triggering is very useful for isolating the event of interest, but once
you’ve captured it and need to analyze the surrounding data, what do you
do? In the past, users had to manually scroll through the waveform
counting and converting bits and looking for what caused the event. You
can have the oscilloscope automatically search through the acquired data
for user-defined criteria including serial packet content. Each occurrence is
highlighted by a search mark. Rapid navigation between marks is as simple
as pressing the Previous (←) and Next (→) buttons on the front panel.
Digital Voltmeter (DVM) and Frequency
Counter
The MDO3000 contains an integrated 4-digit digital voltmeter (DVM) and 5digit frequency counter. Any of the analog inputs can be a source for the
voltmeter, using the same probes that are already attached for general
oscilloscope usage. The easy-to-read display offers you both numeric and
graphical representations of the changing measurement values. The
display also shows minimum, maximum, and average values of the
measurement as well as the range of values measured over the previous
five second interval. The DVM and frequency counter is available on any
MDO3000 and is activated when you register your product.
Event table
In addition to seeing decoded packet data on the bus waveform itself, you
can view all captured packets in a tabular view much like you would see in
a software listing. Packets are time stamped and listed consecutively with
columns for each component (Address, Data, etc.). You can save the event
table data in .CSV format.
A DC measurement value is shown with a five second variation along with minimum,
maximum, and average voltage values. The frequency of the waveform is also shown.

Mixed Domain Oscilloscopes -- MDO3000 Series
Designed to fit into your work environment
Compact form factor
With the compact, portable form factor, you can easily move the
oscilloscope between labs. And with a depth of just 5.8 inches (147 mm), it
saves you valuable space on your test bench. The MDO3000 has all the
tools you'll need for everyday debug tasks, all in a single instrument.
The MDO3000 is designed to fit into your work environment. With six instruments in one
small, portable package, the MDO3000 offers a unique combination of debug tools
without taking up valuable space on your bench.
Large high-resolution display
The MDO3000 Series compact form factor frees up valuable space on your bench or
desktop while making sure you will always have the debug tools you need.
The MDO3000 Series features a 9 inch (229 mm) wide-screen, highresolution (800 × 480 WVGA) display for seeing intricate signal details.
Connectivity
The MDO3000 contains a number of ports which can be used to connect
the instrument to a network, directly to a PC, or other test equipment.
Front and rear USB host ports enable easy transfer of screen shots,
instrument settings, and waveform data to a USB mass storage device.
A USB keyboard can also be attached to a USB host port for data
entry.
Rear USB device port is useful for controlling the oscilloscope remotely
from a PC or for printing directly to a PictBridge®-compatible printer.
The standard 10/100 Ethernet port on the rear of the instrument
enables easy connection to networks, provides network and e-mail
printing, and provides LXI Core 2011 compatibility.
A video out port on the rear of the instrument allows the display to be
exported to an external monitor or projector.

Step 3: Select application modules and accessories
Application modules
Application modules are purchased as stand-alone products and can be purchased at the time of initial MDO3000 purchase or at
any future time. The optional application modules functionality is offered free for a 30-day trial period. This free trial period starts
automatically when the instrument is powered on for the first time.
Application modules have licenses which can be transferred between an application module and an oscilloscope. The license may
be contained in the module; allowing the module to be moved from one instrument to another. Or, the license can be contained in
the oscilloscope; allowing the module to be removed and stored for safekeeping. The license can be transferred back to the
module for use in another MDO3000 oscilloscope. Transferring the license to an oscilloscope and removing the module permits
the use of more than two applications simultaneously.
