Synchronized multi-channel spectrum analysis

Get 4, 6 or 8 channels of spectrum analysis. Hardware digital downconverters (DDCs) in parallel with time domain signal processing unlock exciting capabilities.

  • Any analog channel can be viewed as a waveform, spectrum, or both
  • Plot and trigger on changes in RF frequency or magnitude
  • Spectrums and time domain waveforms are synchronized to correlate RF and time domain events
  • Spectrum controls such as center frequency and RBW are completely independent of time domain controls

Advanced analysis simplified

Characterize jitter on GHz clocks and serial buses with ease. Bring statistics into your everyday toolkit with integrated measurements. Use the same simple drag and drop action to add advanced and everyday measurements.

  • Automated measurements and trend analysis
  • Spectrum View synchronized multi-channel spectrum analysis
  • Advanced jitter analysis
  • Advanced power analysis
  • Power rail measurements
  • Memory analysis and debug
  • High-speed serial compliance

Fidelity begins at the probe tip

With 4, 6 or 8 FlexChannel® inputs you can browse your circuits with the included 1 GHz probes. Connect high performance single-ended active probes or differential probes, or do both at once with TriMode probes. Connect a TLP058 logic probe and get 8 digital channels on any FlexChannel input to expand your system visibility.

  • Built-in 1 MΩ and 50 Ω input terminations
  • 1 GHz low-loading passive probe for each input, included
  • TekVPI probe interfaces with 10W of probe power per channel for differential, current, power rail, and optically isolated probes

Electromagnetic Interference Troubleshooting

Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) Troubleshooting

Each analog channel on the 6 Series MSO can show you a time domain waveform, a spectrum, or both. Time and frequency plots are synchronized to help you quickly determine which signals are the victims and which ones are the aggressors.

EMI Troubleshooting with the Latest-Generation Oscilloscopes

3-phase Inverters, Motors and Drives

The Inverters, Motors and Drives Analysis package makes it easy to perform stable, reliable power measurements on 3-phase PWM systems.

Highlights

  • Up to 8 analog input channels
  • 3-phase wye, delta, and single-phase wiring configurations
  • Comprehensive power measurements
