Published: 19th January 2022

Get a complete view of your design with high-fidelity waveforms, insightful measurements, unique spectrum analysis, and flexible probing. Experience the intuitive user interface appreciated by engineers everywhere.

New Features of the 5 Series B Mixed Signal Oscilloscope

  • A user interface designed for touch, drag and swipe actions and an improved 15.6-inch HD display provide more clarity, showcasing the impressive waveform detail captured by the 12-bit ADCs. It’s now even easier to see your signal behavior at a glance.
  • A new auxiliary trigger input that lets users synchronize the oscilloscope to an external signal without consuming any of the four, six or eight full-capability input channels.
  • 2x faster waveforms from the optional built-in function generator for frequency response analysis and general-purpose use, enabling higher frequency stimulus for measurements such as Bode plots and impedance measurements.
  • TekScopeTM and TekDrive for offline analysis and cloud data storage that enables analysis of oscilloscope waveform data anywhere, without tying up the oscilloscope. Controls are built into the scope to enable data to be saved in cloud storage locations with a single button press, allowing teams to work and collaborate almost anywhere in the world.
  • Low-loading passive probes with bandwidth up to 1 GHz and support for a wide range of probes, such as current, differential, power rail and optically isolated probes, eliminating common-mode interference using optical isolation. Flexible probing options ensure that the 5 Series B can adapt to whatever systems and signals you are trying to measure.
  • History Mode, which leverages the 5 Series MSO B’s extended memory, allowing users to capture thousands of triggered events and easily review, measure and compare how results vary from one acquisition to the next.
  • The Solid-State Drive System ensures that all user data is stored on a removable drive—a critical capability for secure labs where data control and integrity is mission-critical.

Applications

Protocol Decoding and Analysis

Automatic serial bus decoding saves time and eliminates errors versus hand decoding. Search functions enable you to isolate events for fast system-level troubleshooting. See the datasheet for a complete listing of more than 25 supported protocols.

Highlights

  • I2C, SPI
  • RS-232 / 422 / 485 / UART
  • USB 2.0
  • Ethernet

Power Integrity and Power Management

Today’s boards can have 20 or more power rails. Most of these are just a few volts or less and many have strict noise limits. Make accurate multi-rail measurements with the right tools .

Highlights

  • Up to 8 analog input channels
  • Compatible with low-noise TPR Series power-rail probes
  • Decoding options for I2C, SPI, SMBus, SPMI and SVID
  • Optional impedance vs. frequency plots

Jitter Analysis and Serial Standards Compliance

Clocks are the heart of every embedded system and digital communication link. Excessive jitter can impact system operation but the jitter analysis package will help you find the sources.

Automated compliance packages simplify testing to make sure your high-speed serial bus implementations conform to serial standards such as USB and Ethernet.

Power Supply Analysis

Whether your latest design uses silicon, gallium arsenide or silicon carbide, making accurate power quality, harmonics and switching loss measurements is easier with automated power measurements.

Highlights

  • Power quality and harmonics
  • Switching loss and safe operating area
  • In-circuit inductor and transformer analysis
  • Multi-output efficiency
  • Bode plots and power supply rejection ratio

3-Phase Inverters, Motors and Drives Analysis

Make stable 3-phase power measurements on pulse-width modulated waveforms. The Inverters, Motors and Drives Analysis package makes it easy.

Highlights

  • Up to 8 analog input channels
  • 3-phase wye, delta, and single-phase wiring configurations
  • Comprehensive power measurements
  • Harmonics analysis
  • DQ0 measurements

Automotive Power and In-vehicle Networks

Equipped with differential voltage probes and current probes, the 5 Series is ideal for validating the latest SiC power converters.

Decoders for CAN, CAN FD, LIN, FlexRay, PSI5 and SENT buses make it easy to see communications between ECUs, sensors and actuators.

An automated Automotive Ethernet compliance suite lets you easily test to the standards, without becoming a high-speed bus expert.

Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) Troubleshooting

Each analog channel on the 5 Series B MSO can show you a time domain waveform, a spectrum, or both. Time and frequency plots are synchronized to help you quickly determine which signals are the victims and which ones are the aggressors.
