The Tektronix MSO56 5-BW-1000 is a 6 FlexChannel Mixed Signal Oscilloscope with a real-time sample rate of 6.25 GS/s and a 62.5 Mpoints record length.

The 5 Series MSO offers better visibility into complex systems by offering four, six and eight channel models with a large 15.6" high definition (1,920 x 1,080) display. Many applications, such as embedded systems, threephase power electronics, automotive electronics, power supply design, and DC-to-DC power converters, require the observation of more than four analog signals to verify and characterize device performance, and to debug challenging system issues.

The 5 Series MSO offers a new level of integration of digital channels. Digital channels share the same high sample rate (up to 6.25 GS/s) for fine timing resolution, and long record length (up to 125 Mpoints) for long time captures as analog channels. Previous-generation MSOs required tradeoffs, with digital channels having lower sample rates or shorter record lengths than analog channels.
