Farnell, an Avnet company and global distributor of electronic components, products and solutions, is now shipping the new Tektronix 2 Series Mixed Signal Oscilloscope (2 Series MSO).

This next-gen instrument is an advancement in test and measurement performance, versatility and portability, enabling engineers to detect and resolve problems in the lab and the field.

The Tektronix 2 Series MSO is an innovative product built by engineers, for engineers, and is suitable for embedded design, industrial, automotive and power electronics applications. Designed for ease of use, the 2 Series MSO features the same interface included in higher performance Tektronix oscilloscopes, such as the 4, 5 and 6 Series. New and experienced users can have access to all the measurements and settings needed to carry out intuitive debugging and critical signal validation faster than ever before.

The 2 Series MSO contains natively integrated software tools to allow engineers to collaborate, troubleshoot and debug across time zones. It also includes TekDrive, a test and measurement workspace in the cloud where engineers can upload, store, organise and share data from a connected device.

The capabilities of the optional 50MHz Arbitrary Function Generator and built-in pattern generator, voltmeter and frequency counter provide greater versatility in a single unit while reducing the need for users to purchase or carry multiple instruments. It is 38mm thin and weighs 1.8kg, and will fit into a laptop bag.

Key features of the 2 Series MSO include:

  • Bandwidths from 70MHz to 500MHz
  • Two or four analogue channel inputs
  • 16 digital channels (available with future software release)
  • 2.5GS/s sample rate
  • Optional 50MHz Arbitrary Function Generator
  • Built-in pattern generator, voltmeter, and frequency counter
  • Optional battery for up to eight hours of power

Tektronix offers options to extend the warranty of the 2 Series MSO from one to three or five years and offers a discounted total product protection service plan when purchased with the oscilloscope.

James McGregor, global head of test, tools & production supplies at Farnell said, “We are pleased to help bring-to-market the next generation in oscilloscopes from Tektronix. The 2 Series MSO will be welcomed by designers, service technicians and students who will all appreciate this high performance, versatile and portable oscilloscope. With the 2 Series MSO, engineers will be able to achieve new workflows previously unimagined on an oscilloscope.”

The new-to-market Tektronix 2 Series MSO Oscilloscope is now available from Farnell in EMEA, Newark in North America and element14 in APAC.
