Description

The Tektronix MSO46 from the NEW 4 Series MSO offers better visibility into complex systems by offering four and six channel models with a 13.3-inch high-definition (1,920 x 1,080) display. Many applications, such as embedded systems, three-phase power electronics, automotive electronics, power supply design, and DC-to-DC power converters, require the observation of more than four analog signals to verify and characterize device performance, and to debug challenging system issues.

With the largest display and highest available channel count in its class, the 4 Series offers unprecedented insight in a bench-friendly package. And its made-for-touch user interface works exactly as you'd expect.

Biggest display in its class and award-winning user interface

Applications

Applications


Embedded serial bus analysis


Serial bus decode and trigger options transform the 4 Series MSO into an indispensable tool for debugging serial buses with automatic decode, trigger, and search.


Learn about I2C and SPI bus decode and triggering


Power Integrity


Today's boards can have 20 or more power rails, many of which are less than a few volts with strict noise limits.


Learn more in the Power Rail Measurement application note


Power supply measurements and analysis


Even with lower standby power, faster switching and stricter noise limits, the 4 Series can speed up power supply troubleshooting, optimization and validation.


Learn about automated measurements in the Power Supply Measurement & Analysis with 4/5/6-PWR application note


Automotive ECU design


Automotive systems demand robust communications between ECUs, sensors and actuators.


Learn about CAN, CAN FD, LIN and FlexRay decoding and triggering speed debug


Learn about SENT bus decoding and triggering


Electromagnetic interference (EMI) troubleshooting


With the Spectrum View option each analog channel on the 4 Series MSO can show you a time domain waveform, a spectrum, or both. The time and frequency plots are synchronized to help you quickly determine which signals are the victims and which ones are the aggressors.
