Introducing the Mixed Domain Oscilloscope
The MDO4000 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 MDO4000 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 MDO4000
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.
2 www.tektronix.com
The upper half of the MDO4000 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.
Figures 1 through 4 show a simple everyday application – tuning of a PLL.
This application illustrates the powerful connection between the time
domain and the frequency domain that the MDO4000 Series provides. With
its wide capture bandwidth and ability to move Spectrum Time throughout
the acquisition, this single capture includes the same spectral content as
approximately 1,500 unique test setups and acquisitions on a traditional
spectrum analyzer. For the first time ever, correlating events, observing
interactions, or measuring timing latencies between the two domains is
exceptionally easy, giving you quick insight to your design’s operation.

Figure 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
2.2202 GHz when the circuit turns on.
Figure 3 - Spectrum Time is moved another 120 μs to the right. At this point the spectrum
shows that the PLL has actually overshot the correct frequency and gone all the way to
2.4164 GHz.
Figure 4 - The PLL eventually settles on the correct 2.400 GHz frequency about 340 μs
after the VCO was enabled.
Figure 2 - Spectrum Time is moved about 60 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 up to 2.3168 GHz.

Visualizing changes in your RF signal
The time domain graticule on the MDO4000 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.
Advanced triggering with analog, digital and
spectrum analyzer channels
In order to deal with the time-varying nature of modern RF applications, the
MDO4000 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.
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.
Fast and accurate spectral analysis
When using the spectrum analyzer input by itself, the MDO4000 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.
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.

Mixed Domain Oscilloscopes — MDO4000 Series
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.
Key spectral parameters are adjusted quickly with 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
MDO4000 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.
Spectrogram
The MDO4000 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.
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.
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
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.

900 MHz and out of the device through Bluetooth at 2.4 GHz, captured with a single
acquisition.
Triggered versus Free Run operation
Spectrum traces
When both the time and frequency domains are displayed, the spectrum
shown is always triggered by the system trigger event and is time correlated
with the active time-domain 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.
The MDO4000 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.
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
MDO4000 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.

Normal, Average, Max Hold, and Min Hold spectrum traces
Mixed Domain Oscilloscopes — MDO4000 Series
RF measurements
Advanced RF analysis
The MDO4000 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 MDO4000 can save the 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.
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
MDO4000 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 using oscilloscopes and logic analyzers
as EMI issues become more transient due to the complex interactions of
numerous digital circuits in modern designs.
The optional TPA-N-VPI adapter enables any active, 50 Ω TekVPI probe to be
connected to the RF input.
The MDO4000, 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
MDO4000 is the only instrument available that can discover the connection
between time-domain events and offending spectral emissions.

Built on the award-winning MSO4000B Series
of Mixed Signal Oscilloscopes
The MDO4000 Series provides you with the same comprehensive set of
features available in the MSO4000B Mixed Signal Oscilloscope Series. This
robust set of tools will help you speed through 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.
Discover
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.
The industry’s most complete visualization of signals provides fast insight
into the real operation of your device. A fast waveform capture rate –
greater than 50,000 waveforms per second – enables you to see glitches
and other infrequent transients within seconds, 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.
8 www.tektronix.com
Discovering a device fault is only the first step. Next, you must capture the
event of interest to identify root cause.
Accurately capturing any signal of interest begins with proper probing. Lowcapacitance probes are included with the oscilloscope, one for each analog
channel. These industry-first high-impedance passive voltage probes have
less than 4 pF of capacitive loading to minimize the affect of the probe on
your circuit's operation, offering the performance of an active probe with the
flexibility of a passive probe.
A complete set of triggers - including runt, timeout, logic, pulse width/glitch,
setup/hold violation, serial packet, and parallel data - help you quickly find
your event. With up to a 20M point 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 oscilloscope provides integrated support for the industry's
broadest range of serial buses - I2C, SPI, USB, Ethernet, CAN, LIN,
FlexRay, RS-232/422/485/UART, MIL-STD-1553, and I2S/LJ/RJ/TDM. The
ability to decode up to four serial and/or parallel buses simultaneously
means you gain insight into system-level problems quickly.
To further help troubleshoot system-level interactions in complex embedded
systems, the oscilloscope 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, serial, and RF signals. The MagniVu™ highspeed acquisition on these channels enables you to acquire fine signal
detail (up to 60.6 ps resolution) around the trigger point for precision timing
measurements. MagniVu is essential for making accurate timing
measurements for setup and hold, clock delay, signal skew, and glitch
characterization.

Search
Analyze
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 beyond a million data points, locating your event can mean
scrolling through thousands of screens of signal activity.
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 innovative Wave Inspector® controls give you the industry’s most
comprehensive search and waveform navigation capability. These controls
speed panning and zooming through your record. With a unique forcefeedback 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, serial-bus, and RF-versus-time data.
Along the way it will automatically mark every occurrence of your defined
event so you can quickly move between events.
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, spectral
math, FFT analysis, and trend plots for visually determining how a
measurement is changing over time. Specialized application support for
serial bus analysis, power supply design, and video design and
development is also available.
