Tektronix Announces First 10 GHz Oscilloscope with 4, 6 and 8 Channels

Tektronix has announced the availability of the new 6 Series B Mixed Signal Oscilloscope (MSO) which extends the performance threshold of the Tektronix Oscilloscopes Portfolio to 10 GHz and 50 GS/sec. Developed to meet the demand for high-speed data movement and processing in embedded designs, the enhanced 6 Series B MSO offers leading signal fidelity with 12-bit ADCs and extremely low noise, 10 GHz bandwidth and up to 8 FlexChannel inputs, enabling users to confidently analyze and debug today's embedded systems while enjoying exceptional ease of use. Alongside the 6 Series B MSO, Tektronix is also introducing the new TDP7710 TriMode Probe, which extends the line of TriMode probes to match the advancements of the new oscilloscope.

Chris Witt, Vice President and General Manager at Tektronix said that embedded designs are becoming more sophisticated by incorporating additional sensors that generate increasing amounts of data. This instrument addresses the new requirements of testing these systems to advance video, motion and 3D sensing technologies.

Exceptional Measurement Confidence

The new 6 Series B MSO goes beyond the expected, by allowing top manufacturers to bring cutting-edge and higher performance products to industrial, medical, consumer and computer markets. This instrument has been developed for higher-speed embedded designs, demanding mixed-signal design troubleshooting and accelerating serial bus speeds. The 6 Series B MSO is also highly-effective for diverse applications in semiconductors, power integrity, automotive, defense, aerospace, research and beyond.

Premier Analysis

The 6 Series B MSO offers a range of options to streamline protocol decoding, compliance testing for serial standards, jitter analysis, and power analysis. Built-in digital down converters (DDCs) behind every channel enable multi-channel spectrum analysis, and spectrum measurements are synchronized with time-domain waveforms to enable correlation between RF and time events.


The new 6 Series B MSO is now available worldwide, priced from $26,500.00 US MSRP. Each unit receives Tektronix's one-year warranty on the instrument and included probes (one TPP1000 1 GHz voltage probe per channel).
