Tektronix has won a Palmarès Technologique award for its MSO4000 Mixed Signal Oscilloscope (MSO4000) from Mesures magazine in France.
The Mixed signal oscilloscope 4000, available at TekMark , received the innovation award in the test and measurement category which was presented at a ceremony in Paris on June 19th, 2008.
The MSO 4000 family of mixed signal oscilloscopes combine three capabilities - an advanced real-time oscilloscope and logic analyser and the Wave Inspector waveform search engine - into one small and lightweight portable device for embedded design and debug.
These allow engineers to conveniently visualise and correlate analogue and digital signals on a single instrument. The MSO4000 family includes four models ranging from 350 MHz to 1 GHz, with two or four analogue channels and 16 digital channels to provide up to 20 time-correlated channels.
“The Tektronix MSO 4000 series of mixed signal oscilloscopes was one of the first to integrate 4 analogue channels, 16 digital channels and a 10.4” diagonal screen in a box just 14 cm deep,” said Youssef Belgnaoui, editor of Mesures. “Combining the functions of analogue and digital analysis in a compact instrument is an interesting option for electronic engineers.”
The Palmarès Technologique awards are an annual event and this is the 13th year that they have run. In total there are ten categories of test and measurement equipment and the Mesures editorial team select the most innovative product from each category over the course of the year.
