The 2560 Digital Storage and Mixed Signal Oscilloscope (MSO) Series delivers advanced features and debug capabilities for a wide range of applications. With up to 300 MHz bandwidth in a 4-channel configuration, each model offers a maximum sample rate of 2 GSa/s, and a maximum memory depth of 140 Mpts. In addition, these oscilloscopes provide an 8” color display with 256 levels of color grading combined with a high waveform update rate up to 140,000 wfms/sec, which allows the instruments to capture infrequent glitches with excellent signal fidelity. The logic analyzer and decode software provides 16 additional digital channels and serial bus decoding for I2C, SPI, UART/RS232, CAN, and LIN protocols.
Furthermore, to maximize productivity it uses extensive features such as digital filtering, waveform recording, pass/fail limit testing, and automatic measurements. In fact, the optional 25 MHz function/arbitrary waveform generator (AWG) provides stimulus output of 4 arbitrary waveforms, sine, square, ramp, pulse, DC, noise, cardiac, Gaussian pulse, and exponential rise/fall waveforms to the device under test.
Review of Key specifications
The 2560 Series oscilloscope is ideal for applications in design, education, service, and repair. In addition, it offers a comprehensive set of tools to capture signal anomalies, decode serial bus protocols, and help speed up debug and analysis.
As for the MSO, AWG, and decoding functionalities, they are all available for upgrade in the field with the purchase of a license key. In fact, you can install the MSO and decode licenses at any time or try before you buy with the 30-day trial license on each model. Consequently, this means that any DSO model in the 2560 Series can be upgraded to an MSO. Another point worth noting is that included in the MSO models, is a series of 16 integrated digital channels that are displayed along-side analog channels, thus allowing users to view up to 20 time-correlated channels with shared triggering and acquisition on one screen.
