Tektronix Unveiled the 2 Series Mixed Signal Oscilloscope

Tektronix unveiled the 2 Series Mixed Signal Oscilloscope (MSO), reimagining what is possible in test and measurement. The new 2 Series MSO can go seamlessly from the bench to the field and back. It is the first portable oscilloscope to offer benchtop performance and the award-winning Tektronix user interface. Weighing less than 1.8kgs and 38mm thin, the 2 Series MSO can fit into a small backpack.

The easy to use 10.1” touchscreen display makes working on the go easy and fast. It includes optional Arbitrary Function Generator (AFG), pattern generator, voltmeter and frequency counter – and provides up to eight hours of battery power. “This breakthrough product was a direct result of our proven Growth Accelerator innovation process and continued focus on our customers,” said Tami Newcombe, Tektronix President. “Our team worked closely with engineers to deeply understand their unique needs.”

The 2 Series MSO joins other Tektronix oscilloscopes with the user experience also found on the 3, 4, 5, and 6 Series oscilloscopes. This makes it easier for engineers to work effortlessly across these Tektronix products. The colored LED ring lights around the knobs indicate active sources or parameters to adjust or to indicate status. The 2 Series MSO is equipped for advanced debugging in a single instrument, including:

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

Unlocks Remote Work and Team Collaboration

Natively integrated software tools allow engineers to collaborate, troubleshoot, and debug designs across time zones. The 2 Series MSO includes TekDrive, a test and measurement data workspace in the cloud where engineers can upload, store, organize, and share any file from a connected device. Users can also perform analysis on a waveform and save it back to the cloud for immediate viewing and feedback from peers.

Total Product Protection Service

To extend and enhance the level of service, Tektronix includes options to extend the warranty from one to three or five years. To provide 2 Series MSO owners protection in the event of accidental damage, Tektronix is offering an introductory promotional price on a Total Product Protection service plan when purchased with the oscilloscope. Purchase the new, light and portable oscilloscope and know it’s protected wherever you go. For more information on the Total Product Protection service plan, visit Tek.com.
