Discover and solve issues quickly by performing system
level debug on mixed signal embedded systems
including today’s most common serial bus and wireless
technologies.
Power Design
Make reliable and repeatable voltage, current, and
power measurements using automated power quality,
switching loss, harmonics, ripple, modulation, and safe
operating area measurements with the widest selection
of power probes in an affordable solution.
EMI Troubleshooting
Quickly track down the source of EMI in an embedded
system by determining which time domain signals may
be causing unwanted EMI. See in real-time the effects
time domain signals have on system EMI emissions.
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 time-consuming 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.
Wireless Troubleshooting
Whether using Bluetooth, 802.11 Wi-Fi, 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 upgradability enables
adding functionality over time as needs change or
budgets allow.
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.
Digital phosphor technology enables a greater than 340, 000 wfm/s waveform
capture rate and real-time intensity grading.
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.

Datasheet
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.
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.
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.
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.
Over 125 trigger combinations make capturing your event of interest easy.

Wave Inspector controls provide unprecedented efficiency in vieing,
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).
Mixed Domain Oscilloscopes
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
Search step 1: You define what you would like to find.
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 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 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
Waveform Histograms
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.
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.
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.

Mixed Domain Oscilloscopes
Video Design and Development (Optional)
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, 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 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.

Datasheet
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.
2.Spectrum Analyzer (Optional)
Fast and Accurate Spectral Analysis
When using the optional spectrum analyzer input by itself, the
MDO4000C Series display becomes a full-screen 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.

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.

against a live signal. Results showing statistical information about the test are

TEK.COM
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.
Mixed Domain Oscilloscopes
Two manual markers are also available for measuring nonpeak 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.
Spectrogram
The MDO4000C Series with option SA3 or SA6 includes
a spectrogram display which is ideal for monitoring slowly
changing RF phenomena. The ×-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.
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 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.

Ultra-Wide Capture Bandwidth
Spectrum Traces
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 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 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 3 GHz or 6 GHz,
unlike a scope FFT that rolls off to 3 dB down at the rated
bandwidth of the input channel.
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.
Advanced Triggering with Analog, Digital and
Spectrum Analyzer Channels

at 900 MHz and out of the device through Bluetooth at 2.4 GHz, captured with a

TEK.COM
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.
Mixed Domain Oscilloscopes
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.
using oscilloscopes and logic analyzers as EMI issues become
more transient due to the complex interactions of numerous
digital circuits in modern designs.
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.
Automated Channel Power measurement
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

Time Synchronized Insights into Analog,
Digital, and RF
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.
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.
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.
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.

(yellow) is probing a control signal that enables the VCO. Channel 2 (cyan) is

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 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

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.
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 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.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 automotivestyle 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.
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.
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.
The P6616 MSO probe offers two eight-channel pods to simplify connecting to
your device.
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.
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 (I2S/LJ/RJ/
TDM only), or ASCII (USB, Ethernet, and RS-232/422/485/
UART only) in the bus waveform.
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.
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.

Standard Passive Voltage Probes
The MDO4000C Series include passive voltage probes with
industry best capacitive loading of only 3.9 pF. The included
TPP probes minimize the impact on devices under test and
accurately deliver signals to the oscilloscope for acquisition
and analysis. The probe bandwidth matches or exceeds your
oscilloscope bandwidth so you can see the high-frequency
components in your signal which is critical for high-speed
applications. The TPP Series passive voltage probes offer
all the benefits of general-purpose probes like high dynamic
range, flexible connection options, and robust mechanical
design, while providing the performance of active probes.
