Let no detail go unseen, with up to 16 bits of vertical resolution.
12-bit analog to digital converters deliver up to 16 bits of vertical resolution using advanced digital signal processing. See and measure small signal details, even if they’re riding on large signals.
More than a remarkably intuitive user interface: a delightful experience.
Get the big picture and take total control, with the 15.6-inch HD touchscreen display. Use the capacitive pinch-zoom-swipe touchscreen, front panel controls, or mouse to analyze and manage multiple signals without fighting through menus.

MSO 5 Series: “Designed by engineers for engineers”
One of the first reviews, well more of a mini-review, of the new Tektronix 5 Series Mixed Signal Oscilloscope that officially launched today has posted on YouTube. Blogger Shahriar Shahramian, who runs the popular The Signal Path (TSP) electrical engineering video blog, shows excitement about the new scope, declaring that it’s “designed by engineers for engineers.”
We were able to let Shahriar have an 8-channel, 2 GHz instrument overnight before he headed out on the road for several business trips. He plans a full review down the road. As he notes, the 5 Series MSO is a complete, built from the ground up new-design and has a number of never-seen-before features including 4, 6 or 8-channel models, analog and digital flexible inputs (FlexChannels), a large HD 15.6 display and a new touch user interface unlike any other GUI available on a scope -- to name a few.
