MIPI testing improves as Tek expands performance range


Tektronix Inc. is expanding its performance oscilloscope range with two units ranging from 500 MHz to 8 GHz designed to help embedded system design engineers troubleshoot designs.

The additions include the DPO7000C series and new 4-, 6- and 8-GHz models in the MSO/DPO/DSA70000C series. The company is also expand its support for MIPI testing with serial decode solutions for the MIPI Alliance’s CSI-2 and DSI specifications.

The DPO7000C series combines analysis functionality for a number of applications into a single oscilloscope. It includes serial analysis solutions that enable designers to solve design problems using tools for every stage of debug, from discovering that a problem exists to capturing it, then searching long records for all instances and analyzing to find root cause.  

The instruments use the Microsoft Windows 7 operating system to ease integration with data networks, intuitive operation and faster boot up times. A faster compute platform provides up to 3x faster time to answer on DPOJET Jitter measurements for example.  They also provide full LXI Class C support to ease integration into automated test stations.

Serial bus analysis includes decode, trigger and search support for the most popular embedded system buses including  I2C, SPI, RS-232/422/485/UART, USB 2.0, MIPI CSI-2 and DSI specifications.  

The MSO/DPO/DSA70000C series supports trigger, decode and search capability for popular embedded system buses along with high speed timing analysis and compliance packages for standards including DDR3, USB 3.0, PCIe 3.0 and others.

The DPO7000C is available in 4-, 6- and 8- GHz models while the for the MSO70000C Series, new P6750 logic probes offer high density DMAX footprint signal access on up to 16 logic channels. Improved debug capability with advanced search & mark, along with DPOJET Essentials are now standard on all instruments.

Expanded support for the MIPI specifications includes protocol decode and search for MIPI CSI-2 and DSI serial buses. This complements the broad range of testing capability for the emerging MIPI Alliance test requirements including MIPI D-PHY  support on Tektronix DPO7000C & MSO/DPO/DSA70000C series oscilloscopes.

A TekExpress automation toolset provides 100 percent one-button compliance testing of MIPI D-PHY TX measurements. Tektronix also provides DigRFv.4 logic testing on its TLA7000 series logic analyzers.

DPO7000C series and 4-, 6- and 8-GHz MSO/DPO/DSA70000C series oscilloscopes and MIPI CSI-2 and DSI-1 support will be available globally beginning April 12. Pricing starts at $17,700 US MSRP for the DPO7000C.
