Economical Mixed Signal Oscilloscope (MSO) with Optional ARB

Stantronic Instruments announces the new MSO-2000 Series Mixed Signal Oscilloscope with many class leading specifications and features.

The MSO-2000 Series from GW Instek boasts a waveform update rate of 120,000 wfm/s and 10M memory depth per channel, to allow users to completely retrieve and analyse complex waveforms. The MSO-2000E models have a built-in 16-channel Logic Analyser and the MSO-2000EA models also incorporate a dual channel 25MHz Arbitrary Waveform Generator (ARB). 

The standard bus trigger and decoding functions include I2C, SPI, UART (RS232/422/485) and CAN/LIN bus for automotive communications. Serial bus waveforms can be triggered and decoded in real time. By using the waveform search function, the desired signals can be identified for analysis and debugging. The MSO-2000 can observe analog waveforms and digital signals simultaneously to clearly differentiate the cause of abnormal signals.

In addition, the MSO-2000EA has a built-in dual channel 25MHz arbitrary waveform generator with modulation capability and also features 14 bit vertical resolution; a sample rate of 200MSa/s; 5 standard output waveforms (Sine, Square, Pulse, Ramp, DC, Noise) and 7 user-defined waveforms: AM/FM/FSK modulation and sweep function. The friendly user interface makes this unit the ideal choice for applications such as circuit simulation tests. 

Bandwidth selections are 200MHz, 100MHz and 70MHz and the display is an 8” WVGA TFT LED. The 1GSa/s maximum real-time sampling rate, the fast waveform update rate, and the minimum 1mV/div vertical range allow the MSO-2000E and MSO-2000EA to measure small complex signals and clearly display measurement results.

Regarding memory depth, the MSO-2000E and MSO-2000EA provide 10M long memory for users to completely retrieve and analyze waveforms. Users, based upon the application requirements, can select 1k, 10k, 100k, 1M or 10M memory depth. In general, short memory depth collocating with the high sampling rate allows users to observe fast-changing waveforms and, on the other hand, long memory depth aims for observing small waveform variation. Waveform search and segmented memory functions expand the flexible applications for long memory. The segmented memory can be divided into 29,000 sections for users to bypass any unimportant waveforms to swiftly search all required waveforms. With this function, more meaningful waveforms can be saved and target waveforms can be displayed rapidly. With the waveform search function, users can rapidly search desired waveforms according to the required trigger conditions.

The MSO-2000 also provides 1M FFT display that allows users to correctly and efficiently acquire measurement results of the frequency domain. The MSO-2000 Series, enhanced by the high waveform update rate of 120,000wfm/sec, Window Zoom and Peak Search, becomes the optimum choice for an economical and multi-function mixed signal oscilloscope.
