  • Base spectrum analyzer included
  • Add instruments and functionality as your testing needs evolve

Accurate Measurements Matter

Thumbnail

Put simply, the MDO3000 Series scope is designed to make the most accurate measurements in the industry. While many other instruments only offer low-resolution display data, the MDO3000 takes measurements on actual acquisition data, providing an unrivaled view into your designs. In fact, we’re so confident in the MDO3000 will give you total confidence in your measurements that we guarantee our specifications. After all, measurement accuracy impacts design integrity. Why settle for anything less than exact?

The best probes at the best price: free.

Thumbnail

Probes should not be overlooked as a key element in the measurement signal path. When you buy an MDO3000 you get the industry’s best probes free. Featuring industry-best loading of 3.9 pF and high bandwidth to match your oscilloscope, the TPP-series probes will be your go-to probe for everyday use.

Highlights

  • TPP-series probes included standard, one per analog channel
  • Industry-best capacitive probe loading of 3.9 pF
  • 250 MHz, 500 MHz or 1 GHz probe bandwidth to match the scope’s bandwidth

Make Wireless Measurements like an RF Expert – without having to become one

Thumbnail
