Tektronix Delivers More Speed & Lowest Noise for Increased Measurement Confidence with 6 Series MSO Mixed Signal Oscilloscope

The First Midrange Scope with 8 GHz Bandwidth and 25 GS/s Sample Rate Simultaneously on all 4 Channels Saves Embedded Systems Designers Time, Protects Investments.

BEAVERTON, Ore., July 17, 2018 -- Tektronix, Inc., a leading worldwide provider of measurement solutions, today introduced the 6 Series MSO mixed signal oscilloscope. The new oscilloscope extends the performance threshold of midrange oscilloscopes to 8 GHz and delivers a 25 GS/s sample rate simultaneously on all 4 channels – an industry first for this class of oscilloscope – to accommodate the needs of designers working on faster, more complex embedded systems designs. With 25 GS/s sample rate on all channels, designers can accurately now view up to four high-speed signals at one time. For example, a DDR3 clock and three DDR3 data channels can be viewed and analyzed simultaneously, decreasing the time it takes to fully characterize a design with an instrument that shares sampling systems between channels.
