BEAVERTON, Ore., Oct. 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Tektronix, Inc., the world's leading manufacturer of oscilloscopes, today announced that its MDO3000 Mixed Domain Oscilloscope (MDO) has been chosen as an Editor's Choice Product in the August 2014 issue of Embedded Computing Design. The MDO3000 clears the design bench of costly, specialized equipment and provides the tools needed to test and debug virtually any embedded design.
The editors continually scan the market for notable new products and chose the MDO3000 for its benefits to embedded designers. As the publication writes, "This device is customizable to provide only the features needed and, in fully integrated form, provides the functionality of an entire workbench in a single small form factor device. The space and cost savings make the MDO3000 a good choice for small and large development organizations."
The MDO3000 Series is the ultimate 6-in-1 integrated oscilloscope. It includes an integrated spectrum analyzer, arbitrary function generator, logic analyzer, protocol analyzer, and digital voltmeter/counter. The MDO3000 is completely customizable and fully upgradeable, so design engineers can add the instruments and performance needed now, and later.
Recent research shows over 25 percent of oscilloscope users now use a spectrum analyzer multiple times per week, and over 40 percent of embedded design projects include some form of wireless capability. As the world's only oscilloscope with a built-in spectrum analyzer, the MDO3000 Series is uniquely positioned to address this paradigm shift for today's designers. When compared to both standalone oscilloscopes and basic spectrum analyzers in this class, the MDO3000 provides best-in-class performance along with the convenience of a single instrument.
"Tektronix embraces the trend toward integrated instrumentation and understands the challenges designers face in attempting to validate and troubleshoot today's increasingly complex embedded designs," said Christopher Witt, general manager, Mainstream Oscilloscopes at Tektronix. "We're pleased and honored to be recognized by the editorial staff of Embedded Computing Design for the MDO3000."
