Tektronis has made several enhancements to the DPO7000 Series Oscilloscopes. Some of these improvements are: support for the Mobile Industry Processor Interface (MIPI) D-PHY standard, new UART/RS-232 protocol analysis software, and four passive probes and three analysis tools as part of standard configurations. The new MIPI D-PHY and UART/RS-232 options are available now for the DPO7000 Series and DPO/DSA70000B Series. The new MIPI solution is available on the new MSO70000 Series as well.
The Tektronix MIPI solution (Option D-PHY) includes automated setup library and methods of implementation (MOI) for testing the D-PHY physical layer standard. Implemented on the DPO7000 Series, the new setup library for DPOJET jitter analysis software includes complete real-time scope measurements listed in the latest D-PHY conformance test spec (CTS). Compared to other more limited alternatives on the market, the Tektronix solution enables users to perform a full range of tests from verification and pre-compliance testing to more in-depth characterization, with custom limits. The test reports provide comprehensive details of numerous parameters in each measurement. In addition, Tektronix MIPI solution is scalable for early start on next generation of MIPI standards, such as M-PHY.
With the DPO7000 triggering capabilities for RS232 and the new UART/RS-232 Protocol Analysis Software (PDU-R), engineers can quickly link decoded data to captured waveforms by selecting data in a result table. This can save significant time for debug and verification tasks tied to these popular legacy standards.
In addition to boosting DPO7000 Series capabilities, Tektronix is also including four passive probes and three popular analysis tools including Waveform Limit Test, Advanced Search & Mark, and Jitter Essentials. Tektronix is the first Windows-based oscilloscope vendor to provide this as part of a standard offering.
