How to use DPO/MSO2000B analyze signal?

Verifying that your prototype's performance matches simulations and meets the project's design goals requires analyzing its behavior. Tasks can range from simple checks of rise times and pulse widths to sophisticated power loss analysis and investigation of noise sources.

The MSO/DPO2000B Series offers a comprehensive set of integrated analysis tools including waveform- and screen-based cursors, 29 automated measurements, and FFT analysis. Specialized application support for serial bus analysis is also available.

The special feature of this series production------Digital phosphor technology

The MSO/DPO2000B Series' digital phosphor technology provides you with fast insight into the real operation of your device. Its waveform capture rate of 5,000 wfm/s gives you a high probability of quickly seeing the infrequent problems common in digital systems: runt pulses, glitches, timing issues, and more.

Waveforms are superimposed with one another and waveform points that occur more frequently are intensified. This quickly highlights the events that over time occur more often or, in the case of infrequent anomalies, occur less often.

With the MSO/DPO2000B Series, you can choose infinite persistence or variable persistence, determining how long the previous waveform acquisitions stay on-screen. This allows you to determine how often an anomaly is occurring.

Mixed signal design and analysis (MSO series special features )

The MSO2000B Series Mixed Signal Oscilloscopes provide 16 digital channels. These channels are tightly integrated into the oscilloscope's user interface, simplifying operation and making it possible to solve mixed-signal issues easily.

Color-coded digital waveform display

The MSO2000B Series has redefined the way you view digital waveforms. One common problem shared by both logic analyzers and mixed-signal oscilloscopes is determining if data is a one or a zero when zoomed in far enough that the digital trace stays flat all the way across the display. The MSO2000B Series has color-coded digital traces, displaying ones in green and zeros in blue.

title

With the color-coded digital waveform display, groups are created by simply placing digital channels together on the screen, allowing the digital channels to be moved as a group. You can set threshold values for each pod of eight channels, enabling support for up to two different logic families.

title

White edges indicate additional information is available by acquiring at a higher sample rate.

The multiple transition detection hardware of the MSO2000B Series will show you a white edge on the display when the system detects multiple transitions. This acts as a visual reminder that increasing the sample rate on the next acquisition will reveal higher frequency information than your previous settings could acquire.

The MSO2000B Series simplifies channel setup by allowing you to group digital waveforms and enter waveform labels by using a USB keyboard. By simply placing digital waveforms next to each other, they form a group. Once a group is formed, you can position all the channels contained in that group collectively. This greatly reduces the normal setup time associated with positioning channels individually.
