MDO4000C Series Oscilloscope
Wireless troubleshooting
Whether using Bluetooth, 802.11 WiFi, ZigBee, or some other wireless
technology, the MDO4000C enables viewing an entire system - analog,
digital, and RF, time-synchronized to understand its true behavior.
Capture an ultra-wide band in a single capture to view interactions
among multiple wireless technologies, or to view an entire broadband
frequency range from a modern standard like 802.11/ad.
Education
Managing multiple instruments on a bench can be troublesome. The
MDO4000C eliminates the need to manage multiple instruments by
integrating six instrument types into a single instrument. The integration
of a spectrum analyzer enables teaching of advanced wireless
technology course work while minimizing the investment required. Full
upgradeability enables adding functionality over time as needs change
or budgets allow.
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.
Manufacturing Test and Troubleshooting
Size and space constraints can play havoc on a manufacturing floor.
The unique 6-in-1 MDO4000C minimizes rack or bench space by
integrating multiple instruments into one small package. Integration
reduces cost associated with utilizing multiple different instrument types
in manufacturing test or troubleshooting stations.
1- Oscilloscope
At the core of the MDO4000C Series is a world-class oscilloscope, offering
comprehensive tools that speed each stage of debug - from quickly
discovering anomalies and capturing them, to searching your waveform
record for events of interest and analyzing their characteristics and your
device's behavior.
Digital phosphor technology with FastAcq™ high-speed waveform
capture – To debug a design problem, first you must know it exists. Every
design engineer spends time looking for problems in their design, a timeconsuming and frustrating task without the right debug tools.
Digital phosphor technology with FastAcq provides you with fast insight into
the real operation of your device. Its fast waveform capture rate - greater
than 340,000 wfms/s - gives you a high probability of quickly seeing the
infrequent problems common in digital systems: runt pulses, glitches, timing
issues, and more.
Digital phosphor technology enables a greater than 340,000 wfm/s waveform capture
rate and real-time 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
MDO4000C 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 20 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 and record reliable measurements.
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.

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 – 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.
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.
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 front- panel 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, Ethernet, CAN, LIN, FlexRay, MIL-STD-1553, and I2S/LJ/RJ/TDM
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.
Search step 1: You define what you would like to find.
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).

MDO4000C Series Oscilloscope
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.
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 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.
Automated measurement readouts provide repeatable, statistical views of waveform
characteristics.
Each measurement has help text and graphics associated with it that help explain how
the measurement is made.
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.

Datasheet

time. Included are numeric measurements made on the waveform histogram data.
Viewing an NTSC video signal. Video picture mode contains automatic contrast and
brightness settings as well as manual controls.
Video design and development (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, 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.
Power analysis (Optional) – Ever increasing consumer demand 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 optional power analysis
tools greatly simplify these tasks, enabling quick 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; no external PC or complex
software setup is required. 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, 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 and four analog inputs, the oscilloscope provides
ample performance for analog and digital video use.
The video functionality is further extended with an optional video application
module, which provides the industry's most complete suite of HDTV and
custom (nonstandard) video triggers, as well as a video picture mode
enabling you to see the picture of the video signal you are viewing - for
NTSC and PAL signals. The optional video 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.
Power quality measurement. Automated power measurements enable quick and
accurate analysis of common power parameters.
6 www.cosinus.de
MDO4000C Series Oscilloscope
Limit-mask testing (Optional) – 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 MDO4000C Series offers both limit and mask
testing capability useful for long-term signal monitoring, characterizing
signals during design, or testing on a production line. A robust set of
telecommunications and computer standards are provided to test for
compliance to a standard. Additionally, custom masks can be created and
used for characterizing signals. 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 or standard 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.
MDO4000C frequency domain display.
Intelligent efficient markers – 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 MDO4000C 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.
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.

signal. Results showing statistical information about the test are displayed.
2- Spectrum Analyzer (Optional)
Fast and accurate spectral analysis – When using the optional spectrum
analyzer input by itself, the MDO4000C Series display becomes a fullscreen Frequency Domain view.
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.
www.cosinus.de 7
Datasheet
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.
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 MDO4000C Series with option SA3 or SA6 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.
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.
8 www.cosinus.de
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.
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
MDO4000C Series provides ≥1 GHz of capture bandwidth. At span settings
of 1 GHz and below, there is no requirement to sweep the display. The
spectrum is generated from a single acquisition, thus guaranteeing you'll
see the events you're looking for in the frequency domain. And because the
integrated spectrum analyzer has a dedicated RF input, the bandwidth is
flat all the way out to 3GHz or 6GHz, unlike a scope FFT that rolls off to
3dB down at the rated bandwidth of the input channel.
MDO4000C Series Oscilloscope
Advanced triggering with analog, digital and spectrum analyzer
channels – In order to deal with the time-varying nature of modern RF
applications, the MDO4000C Series provides a triggered acquisition system
that is fully integrated with the analog, digital and spectrum analyzer
channels. This means that a single trigger event coordinates acquisition
across all channels, allowing you to capture a spectrum at the precise point
in time where an interesting time domain event is occurring. A
comprehensive set of time domain triggers are available, including Edge,
Sequence, Pulse Width, Timeout, Runt, Logic, Setup/Hold Violation, Rise/
Fall Time, Video, and a variety of parallel and serial bus packet triggers. In
addition, you can trigger on the power level of the spectrum analyzer input.
For example, you can trigger on your RF transmitter turning on or off.
Spectral display of a bursted communication both into a device through Zigbee at
900 MHz and out of the device through Bluetooth at 2.4 GHz, captured with a single
acquisition.
Spectrum traces – The MDO4000C Series spectrum analyzer offers four
different traces or views including Normal, Average, Max Hold, and Min
Hold. You can set the detection method used for each trace type
independently or you can leave the oscilloscope in the default Auto mode
that sets the detection type optimally for the current configuration. Detection
types include +Peak, - Peak, Average, and Sample.
The optional MDO4TRIG application module provides advanced RF
triggering. This module enables the RF power level on the spectrum
analyzer to be used as a source for Sequence, Pulse Width, Timeout, Runt,
and Logic trigger types. For example, you can trigger on a RF pulse of a
specific length or use the spectrum analyzer channel as an input to a logic
trigger, enabling the oscilloscope to trigger only when the RF is on while
other signals are active.
RF measurements – The MDO4000C 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.
Automated Channel Power measurement
Normal, Average, Max Hold, and Min Hold spectrum traces
Triggered versus Free Run operation – When both the time and
frequency domains are displayed, the spectrum shown is always triggered
by the system trigger event and is time-synchronized with the active timedomain traces. However, when only the frequency domain is displayed, the
spectrum analyzer can be set to Free Run. This is useful when the
frequency domain data is continuous and unrelated to events occurring in
the time domain.
EMI troubleshooting – EMC testing is expensive regardless of whether
you purchase the equipment to perform in-house testing or you pay an
external test facility to certify your product. And that assumes that your
product passes the first time. Multiple visits to a test house can add
significant cost and delay to your project. The key to minimizing this
expense is early identification and debug of EMI issues. Traditionally,
spectrum analyzers with near field probe sets have been used to identify
the location and amplitude of offending frequencies, but their ability to
determine the cause of the issue is very limited. Designers are increasingly
using oscilloscopes and logic analyzers as EMI issues become more
transient due to the complex interactions of numerous digital circuits in
modern designs.
www.cosinus.de 9
Datasheet
The MDO4000C, with its integrated oscilloscope, logic analyzer, and
spectrum analyzer is the ultimate tool for debugging modern EMI issues.
Many EMI problems are caused from events rooted in the time domain,
such as clocks, power supplies, and serial data links. With its ability to
provide time correlated views of analog, digital, and RF signals, the
MDO4000C is the only instrument available that can discover the
connection between time-domain events and offending spectral emissions.
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 MDO4000C Series. This enables additional flexibility when
hunting for noise sources and enables easier spectral analysis by using
true signal browsing on an RF input.
In addition, an optional preamplifier accessory assists in the investigation of
lower-amplitude signals. The TPA-N-PRE preamplifier provides 12 dB
nominal gain across the 9 kHz - 6 GHz frequency range.
The orange waveform in the Time Domain view is the frequency vs. time trace derived
from the spectrum analyzer input signal. Notice that Spectrum Time is positioned during
a transition from the highest frequency to the lowest frequency, so the energy is spread
across a number of frequencies. With the frequency vs. time trace, you can easily see
the different frequency hops, simplifying characterization of how the device switches
between frequencies.
Advanced RF analysis – When paired with SignalVu-PC and its Live Link
option, the MDO4000C Series becomes the industry's widest bandwidth
Vector Signal Analyzer with up to 1 GHz capture bandwidth. Whether your
design validation needs include Wireless LAN, wideband radar, high data
rate satellite links, or frequency-hopping communications, SignalVu-PC
vector signal analysis software can speed your time-to-insight by showing
you the time-variant behavior of these wideband signals. Available analysis
options include Wi- Fi (IEEE 802.11 a/b/g/j/n/p/ac) signal quality analysis,
Bluetooth Tx compliance, pulse analysis, audio measurements, AM/FM/PM
modulation analysis, general purpose digital modulation and more.
The optional TPA-N-VPI adapter enables any active, 50 Ω TekVPI probe to be
connected to the RF input.
Visualizing changes in your RF signal – The time domain graticule on
the MDO4000C Series display provides support for three RF time domain
traces that are derived from the underlying I and Q data of the spectrum
analyzer input including:
Amplitude - The instantaneous amplitude of the spectrum analyzer
input vs. time
Frequency - The instantaneous frequency of the spectrum analyzer
input, relative to the center frequency vs. time
Phase - The instantaneous phase of the spectrum analyzer input,
relative to the center frequency vs. time
Each of these traces may be turned on and off independently, and all three
may be displayed simultaneously. RF time domain traces make it easy to
understand what's happening with a time-varying RF signal.

MDO4000C paired with SignalVu-PC to analyze 802.11ac modulation.
Time synchronized insights into Analog, Digital, and RF – The
MDO4000C Series is the world's first oscilloscope with a built in spectrum
analyzer. This integration enables you to continue to use your debug tool of
choice, the oscilloscope, to investigate frequency domain issues rather than
having to find and re-learn a spectrum analyzer.
MDO4000C Series Oscilloscope
However, the power of the MDO4000C Series goes well beyond simply
observing the frequency domain as you would on a spectrum analyzer. The
real power is in its ability to correlate events in the frequency domain with
the time domain phenomena that caused them.
When both the spectrum analyzer and any analog or digital channels are
on, the oscilloscope display is split into two views. The upper half of the
display is a traditional oscilloscope view of the Time Domain. The lower half
of the display is a Frequency Domain view of the spectrum analyzer input.
Note that the Frequency Domain view is not simply an FFT of the analog or
digital channels in the instrument, but is the spectrum acquired from the
spectrum analyzer input.
Another key difference is that with traditional oscilloscope FFTs, you can
typically either get the desired view of the FFT display, or the desired view
of your other time domain signals of interest, but never both at the same
time. This is because traditional oscilloscopes only have a single
acquisition system with a single set of user settings such as record length,
sample rate, and time per division that drive all data views. But with the
MDO4000C Series, the spectrum analyzer has its own acquisition system
that is independent, but time correlated, to the analog and digital channel
acquisition systems. This allows each domain to be configured optimally,
providing a complete time correlated system view of all analog, digital, and
RF signals of interest.
1. Time and Frequency Domain view showing the turn-on of a PLL. Channel 1 (yellow) is
probing a control signal that enables the VCO. Channel 2 (cyan) is probing the VCO tune
voltage. The SPI bus which is programming the PLL with the desired frequency is probed
with three digital channels and automatically decoded. Notice Spectrum Time is placed
after the VCO was enabled and coincident with the command on the SPI bus telling the
PLL the desired frequency of 2.400 GHz. Note that the RF is at 2.5564 GHz when the
circuit turns on.
The spectrum shown in the Frequency Domain view is taken from the
period of time indicated by the short orange bar in the time domain view known as the Spectrum Time. With the MDO4000C Series, Spectrum Time
can be moved through the acquisition to investigate how the RF spectrum
changes over time. And this can be done while the oscilloscope is live and
running or on a stopped acquisition.
2. Spectrum Time is moved about 90 μs to the right. At this point, the spectrum shows
that the PLL is in the process of tuning to the correct frequency (2.400 GHz). It has made
it down to 2.4924 GHz.
The upper half of the MDO4000C Series display shows the Time Domain view of the
analog and digital channels, while the lower half shows the Frequency Domain view of
the spectrum analyzer channel. The orange bar - Spectrum Time - shows the period of
time used to calculate the RF spectrum.

3. Spectrum Time is moved another 160 μs to the right. At this point the spectrum shows
that the PLL has actually overshot the correct frequency and gone all the way down to
2.3888 GHz.
Waveform type selection in the integrated AFG.
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
MDO4000C 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 MDO4000C edit memory via
USB or LAN or using a USB mass storage device to be output from the
AFG in the oscilloscope.
4. The PLL eventually settles on the correct 2.400 GHz frequency about 320 μs after the
VCO was enabled.
3- Arbitrary Function Generator-optional
The MDO4000C contains an optional integrated arbitrary function generator
(option MDO4AFG), perfect for simulating sensor signals within a design or
adding noise to signals to perform margin testing.

MDO4000C Series Oscilloscope
4- Logic Analyzer (Optional)
The logic analyzer (option MDO4MSO) 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.
The MDO4000C Series provides 16 integrated digital channels enabling you to view and
analyze time-correlated analog and digital signals.
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.
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.
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 main digital acquisition mode
on the MSO4000C Series will capture up to 20M points at 500 MS/s (2 ns
resolution). In addition to the main record, the oscilloscope provides an
ultra high-resolution record called MagniVu which acquires 10,000 points at
up to 16.5 GS/s (60.6 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 MSOs on the market, instilling confidence when
making critical timing measurements on digital waveforms.
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.
The MagniVu high-resolution record provides 60.6 ps timing resolution, enabling you to
take critical timing measurements on your digital waveforms.

P6616 MSO probe – This unique probe design offers two eight-channel
pods. Each channel ends with a probe tip featuring a recessed ground for
simplified connection to the device under test. The coax on the first channel
of each pod is colored blue making it easy to identify. The common ground
uses an automotive-style connector making it easy to create custom
grounds for connecting to the device under test. When connecting to
square pins, the P6616 has an adapter that attaches to the probe head
extending the probe ground flush with the probe tip so you can attach to a
header. The P6616 offers outstanding electrical characteristics, having only
3 pF of capacitive loading, a 100 kΩ input resistance, and is capable of
acquiring toggle rates >500 MHz and pulses as short as 1 ns in duration.
Triggering on a specific OUT Token packet on a USB full-speed serial bus. The yellow
waveform is the D+ and the blue waveform is the D-. A bus waveform provides decoded
packet content including Start, Sync, PID, Address, End Point, CRC, Data values, 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, USB 2.0, Ethernet, CAN, LIN, FlexRay,
RS-232/422/485/ UART, 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.
The P6616 MSO probe offers two eight-channel pods to simplify connecting to your
device.
5 – 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.
14 www.cosinus.de
Bus decoding – 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 MSO/DPO4000C Series will decode each packet on the bus,
and display the value in hex, binary, decimal (USB, Ethernet, MILSTD-1553, LIN, and FlexRay only), signed decimal (I 2S/LJ/RJ/TDM only),
or ASCII (USB, Ethernet, 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.

The MDO4000C contains an integrated 4-digit digital voltmeter (DVM) and
5- digit 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
MDO4000C 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.

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 MDO4000C 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. Transferring the license to an oscilloscope and
removing the module permits the use of more than 4 applications simultaneously.
