Data Sheet
Discover – A waveform capture rate of 5,000 wfm/s maximizes the probability of capturing
elusive glitches and other infrequent events.
Comprehensive Features Speed Every Stage
of Debug
The MSO/DPO2000 Series offers a robust set of features to speed every
stage of debugging your design – from quickly discovering an anomaly and
capturing it, to searching your waveform record for the event and analyzing
its characteristics and your device’s behavior.
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.
The MSO/DPO2000 Series offers complete visualization of signals,
providing fast insight into the real operation of your device. A waveform
capture rate of 5,000 waveforms per second enables you to see glitches
and other infrequent transients quickly, revealing the true nature of device
faults. A digital phosphor display with intensity grading shows the history
of a signal’s activity by intensifying areas of the signal that occur more
frequently, providing a visual display of just how often anomalies occur.
Capture – Triggering on a specific transmit data packet going across an RS-232 bus. A
complete set of triggers, including triggers for specific serial packet content, ensures you
quickly capture your event of interest.
Discovering a device fault is only the first step. Next, you must capture the
event of interest to identify root cause.
The MSO/DPO2000 Series provides a complete set of triggers – including
runt, logic, pulse width/glitch, setup/hold violation, serial packet, and parallel
data – to help quickly find your event. With up to a 1 Mpoint 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.
From triggering on specific packet content to automatic decode in
multiple data formats, the MSO/DPO2000 Series provides integrated
support for a broad range of serial buses – I2C, SPI, CAN, LIN, and
RS-232/422/485/UART. The ability to decode up to two serial and/or parallel
buses simultaneously means you gain insight into system-level problems
To further help troubleshoot system-level interactions in complex embedded
systems, the MSO2000 Series offers 16 digital channels in addition to
its analog channels. Since the digital channels are fully integrated into
the oscilloscope, you can trigger across all input channels, automatically
time-correlating all analog, digital, and serial signals.
Mixed Signal Oscilloscopes — MSO2000 Series, DPO2000 Series
Search – I2C decode showing results from a Wave Inspector search for Address value
50. Wave Inspector controls provide unprecedented efficiency in viewing and navigating
waveform data.
Finding your event of interest in a long waveform record can be time
consuming without the right search tools. With today’s record lengths
pushing to a million data points, locating your event can mean scrolling
through thousands of screens of signal activity.
The MSO/DPO2000 Series offers the industry’s most comprehensive
search and waveform navigation with its innovative Wave Inspector®
controls. These controls speed panning and zooming through your record.
With a unique force-feedback system, you can move from one end of your
record to the other in just seconds. User marks allow you to mark any
location that you may want to reference later for further investigation. Or,
automatically search your record for criteria you define. Wave Inspector
will instantly search your entire record, including analog, digital, and serial
bus data. Along the way it will automatically mark every occurrence of your
defined event so you can quickly move between events.
Analyze – FFT analysis of a pulsed signal. A comprehensive set of integrated analysis
tools speeds verification of your design’s performance.
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 MSO/DPO2000 Series offers a comprehensive set of integrated
analysis tools including waveform- and screen-based cursors, 29
automated measurements, and FFT analysis. Specialized application
support for serial bus analysis is also available.
For extended analysis, National Instrument’s LabVIEW SignalExpress™
Tektronix Edition provides over 200 built-in functions including time and
frequency domain analysis, limit testing, data logging, and customizable
Data Sheet
Wave Inspector controls provide unprecedented efficiency in viewing, navigating, and
analyzing waveform data. Zip through your 1 Mpoint record by turning the outer pan
control (1). Get from the beginning to end in seconds. See something of interest and want
to see more details? Just turn the inner zoom control (2).
Search step 1: You define what you would like to find.
Wave Inspector® Navigation and Search
A 1 Mpoint record length represents thousands of screens of information.
The MSO/DPO2000 Series enables you to find your event in seconds with
Wave Inspector, the industry’s best tool for navigation and search.
Wave Inspector offers the following innovative controls:
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.
A dedicated Play/Pause front-panel button scrolls the waveform across the
display automatically while you look for anomalies or an event of interest.
Playback speed and direction are controlled using the intuitive pan control.
Once again, turning the control further makes the waveform scroll faster and
changing direction is as simple as turning the control the other way.
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.
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.
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, runt, logic, setup and hold, rise/fall time parallel
bus, and I2C, SPI, CAN, LIN, and RS-232/422/485/UART packet content.
Mixed Signal Oscilloscopes — MSO2000 Series, DPO2000 Series
Digital phosphor technology enables a 5,000 wfm/s waveform capture rate and real-time
intensity grading on the MSO/DPO2000 Series.
With the color-coded digital waveform display, groups are created by simply placing digital
channels together on the screen, allowing the digital channels to be moved as a group.
You can set threshold values for each pod of eight channels, enabling support for up to
two different logic families.
that over time occur more often or, in the case of infrequent anomalies,
occur less often.
With the MSO/DPO2000 Series, you can choose infinite persistence
or variable persistence, determining how long the previous waveform
acquisitions stay on-screen. This allows you to determine how often an
anomaly is occurring.
Mixed Signal Design and Analysis
(MSO Series)
The MSO Series provides 16 integrated digital channels enabling you to view and analyze
time-correlated analog and digital signals.
Digital Phosphor Technology
The MSO/DPO2000 Series’ digital phosphor technology provides you with
fast insight into the real operation of your device. Its waveform capture rate
of 5,000 wfm/s gives you a high probability of quickly seeing the infrequent
problems common in digital systems: runt pulses, glitches, timing issues,
and more.
Waveforms are superimposed with one another and waveform points that
occur more frequently are intensified. This quickly highlights the events
The MSO2000 Series Mixed Signal Oscilloscopes provide 16 digital
channels. These channels are tightly integrated into the oscilloscope’s user
interface, simplifying operation and making it possible to solve mixed-signal
issues easily.
Color-coded Digital Waveform Display
The MSO2000 Series has redefined the way you view digital waveforms.
One common problem shared by both logic analyzers and mixed-signal
oscilloscopes is determining if data is a one or a zero when zoomed in far
enough that the digital trace stays flat all the way across the display. The
MSO2000 Series has color-coded digital traces, displaying ones in green
and zeros in blue.
Data Sheet
White edges indicate additional information is available by acquiring at a higher sample
Output of DAC Signal – Notice how FilterVu™ clearly shows the noise-free steps of the
DAC in the foreground trace (yellow) which has removed all frequencies above 5.5 kHz.
FilterVu also captures and displays high-frequency glitches up to the full bandwidth of the
oscilloscope in the background trace (orange).
FilterVu™ Variable Low-pass Filter
Tired of being limited to a 20 MHz bandwidth filter in your oscilloscope?
Simply turn on FilterVu and adjust the variable low-pass noise filter. Unlike
other variable low-pass filters, FilterVu filters out the unwanted noise from
your signal while still capturing glitches and other signal details up to the full
bandwidth of the oscilloscope. It does this by showing two waveforms: a
waveform that can be filtered (foreground waveform) and a glitch capture
waveform (background waveform).
The P6316 MSO probe offers two eight-channel pods to simplify connecting to your
The multiple transition detection hardware of the MSO2000 Series will
show you a white edge on the display when the system detects multiple
transitions. This acts as a visual reminder that increasing the sample rate
on the next acquisition will reveal higher frequency information than your
previous settings could acquire.
The MSO2000 Series simplifies channel setup by allowing you to 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.
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.
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
The filtered waveform uses a variable low-pass filter to block out noise,
yielding a cleaner waveform to more precisely locate signal edges
and amplitude levels. The result is improved confidence in you cursor
measurements and cleaner documentation of important signal attributes.
When the noise filter is adjusted to the lowest available noise-cutoff
frequency, no more than 1% of high-frequency content that could cause the
oscilloscope to alias will pass through the filter.
The glitch capture waveform shows signal details up to the full bandwidth of
the oscilloscope. The oscilloscope captures pulses as narrow as 5 ns, using
peak-detect min/max sampling, protecting you from missing unexpected
glitches or other high-frequency events.
FilterVu is ideal for repetitive, nonrepetitive, and single-shot events.
Mixed Signal Oscilloscopes — MSO2000 Series, DPO2000 Series
Triggering on a specific data packet going across an I2C bus. The yellow waveform is
clock and the blue waveform is data. A bus waveform provides decoded packet content
including Start, Address, Read/Write, Data, and Stop.
Serial 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. The
MSO/DPO2000 Series offers a robust set of tools for debugging serial
buses with automatic trigger, decode, and search for I2C, SPI, CAN, LIN,
and RS-232/422/485/UART.
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, CAN, LIN, and RS-232/422/485/UART.
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 subpacket 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
Event table showing decoded Identifier, DLC, DATA, and CRC for every CAN packet in
a long acquisition.
MSO/DPO2000 Series will decode each packet on the bus, and display the
value in hex, binary, decimal (LIN only), or ASCII (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.).
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. With
the MSO/DPO2000 Series, 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.
